Trying Again-A Weight loss Journey

Week 1 of 24


Starting January 2nd I resolved to start exercising again. Even though I’d exercised the majority of 2020 and 2021, I lost almost nothing. In 2020, I never ate out of the house, in 2021 I didn’t eat out that much. The only thing I have left to blame is drinking to much on the weekends and Friday night pizza.

I decided to try the newest “magic pill” Trim Life Labs Keto. Even though the good reviews online were questionable and there were several that call it a scam, I decided to try.

So this is the end of week one, exercising, suppressing my appetite, and not drinking.
My first week, I still haven’t lost any weight. Despite the magic pills claim that I could lose up to 5 lbs, I haven’t lost anything. I have been feeling a lot hungrier than I have ever felt before, I don’t remember ever feeling so hungry all the time. However, cravings for carbs are gone and I’ve actually tried to convince myself just one drink with the hubby (habit I guess) but my body feels sick at the idea. So I am constantly munching on small portions of veggies or fruits. I can’t eat a-lot before I get full and I don’t eat after 5:30pm.

I guess they are doing something, because I feel different. Just not what I was expecting. The way these pills were advertised, IS VERY misleading and after purchasing them, I can see why people say it’s a scam. They lead you to believe if you pay for 3 bottles you get 2 free, not so. You pay for 5 at a “discounted” cost, then you go to checkout and a pop up asks if you want the cleansing bottle also, when you say continue to cart (thinking you are bypassing it) it actually adds it with out you knowing. I didn’t get an email with an invoice or confirmation, so, yeah. Scam-ish.

But I have them now so, I’m going to take them and record in detail how I feel about them and if I think they do any good.
As of today, I’m not convinced. Hopefully next week I have a different opinion.
As for exercising, I’ve been walking,jogging, and doing some light weights. I’ve been feeling a little sick, as have the boys, so I didn’t do as much as I would have liked. But! I did some and that’s better than none!!!


Have a wonderful week everyone!!Wishing y’all Happiness, Good Health, and Success!!!

Running, Virtual Runs

Yes.Fit Virtual Racing

I had signed us up for 3 different fun runs this year and not a single one is going to happen because of this virus. They gave me vouchers for next year….if they make it. So, I have turned to virtual racing to get my fix like so many runners. I have tried a few of them now, by far Yes.Fit is my favorite, let me tell you why.

Where all of the programs give you a medal and/or a shirt, its usually sent to you weather or not you actually completed the race. Of course, the only person you are cheating is yourself if you don’t actually complete it, but regardless it’s hard to work for something if you already have it in hand. With Yes.Fit you have to log your miles and when you do complete the race, they send you your chosen reward. To keep you motivated they send e-mails every time you pass a mile marker with some cool information about the theme of your race, pictures, stories along the way, just to name a few. I am currently doing the 97.7 mile Extraterrestrial Highway, I have logged 34 miles so far and started it June 20th. Below are some screen shots of the mile markers I have passed, I didn’t include the link to see what they are about because, hey you have to earn it!! 😉 I just wanted to give you an idea,

The Extraterrestrial Highway is my third race with Yes.Fit, for rewards they give you the option of a shirt or a medal or both if you want to pay for it. I always get the shirts, the medals are really cool but I get more use from the shirts and they are good quality and comfortable.

Another thing I really like about their virtual races, is they have a user friendly app. It keeps track of my progress and I can browse all of their races and challenges easily. Not all of the virtual race programs have apps, in fact I am finding most don’t.

These are pics of the tank tops I received from the other 2 races I completed with Yes.Fit.

If you prefer to achieve before you receive like I do, then Yes.Fit is the way to go. They make virtual racing as realistic as possible with the fun mile marker updates and receiving rewards after you have conquered your race. They make signing up and keeping track of races easy with their app and overall, in my opinion so far are the best Virtual Race Experience I have had to date.

Stay Healthy My Friends!
