HEALTH AND FITNESS JOURNAL by Michele Brock Wednesday, June 6, 2012

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

On Monday, May 21, 2012, I started a 100 Day Results Challenge! with my friend, Megan Wessels, and several of her friends. I made the following commitment:

To eat healthier and work out for the next 100 days. Giving up sweets and pop.

Well, up until yesterday, I have NOT exercised. I have, however, been successful in giving up sweets and pop. In fact, 99.9% of my beverage intake is WATER aka H20.

I am working on the ability to eat healthier. In fact, my ultimate Diet and Nutrition GOAL is to become a VEGAN! I've connected with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and have even started a related group:

Veganism and Raw Foodism Support & Resource Group

...and, then there is the start of my HEALTH AND FITNESS Ministry page:

BODY FIT for the HOLY Spirit

So, today, I went to my gym for the first time in years, Bally Total Fitness aka LA Fitness and got my measurements that I will publicly post on the following pages:


Those measurements, as of today, Wednesday, June 6, 2012, are as follows:


241.0Lbs. (109.5kg)


27.0" (68.6cm)

45.5" (115.6cm)

I'm getting ready to do 15 minutes on my treadmill.

I purchased the following items from:

Treasure Island Foods
Hyde Park
1526 E. 55th Street
Chicago, Illinois 60615

* SOUL VEGAN: Macaroni & Cheese, Fresh Greens, & BBQ Tofu $6.99
* SOUL GOURMET: Vegan Shepherd's Pie $5.99
* SOUL GOURMET: Vegan Super Green Salad $4.49
* SOUL GOURMET: Vegan Chicken Salad $5.69
* SOUL GOURMET: Grilled Southwest Tofu Salad $5.69

I included the prices because they are very comparable to what we would spend at a fast food restaurant.

This entire process is "MIND OVER MATTER"! We cannot afford to continue allowing food to have so much power and control over us. Trust me, I know! I am a Food Connoisseur of many cultural cuisines! I didn't pick up all of this weight by way of osmosis. I completely understand that we're supposed to be more cognizant of what we put into our bodies. Food is supposed to be for fuel, the thing that keeps our bodies aka machines in Top Operating Condition. Many of us take better care of our vehicles than we do our own bodies!

My next journal will be a VIDEO BLOG where I will talk to you for a few minutes, report my progress, demonstrate one of my SHAKEOLOGY recipes, and get my cardio in on my treadmill.
