LTB – The Sisters Movement

It had been a looong, hectic, world wind, confusing few months… I am trying to think back, so I can tell you when it all started, but honestly – I can’t remember… Yikes.

  Well, I want to to fill you in on something that has taken place in my life, since September 2013. Becca, Julez started a new healthy eating regime. Julez & Becca started a blog, around their movement, and I decided to tag along. (I needed to loose some unwanted lbs, anyway, so what did I have to loose?)

  What these 2 girls are doing really is a good thing. Not only for them, but for you too! They aren’t there to be biased, n’ brag about them accomplishments, they are there to help encourage you & so many others too!!

Please check out their blog, I think you will really enjoy it!

QUOTED (with permission) FROM THEIR BLOG: “{Becca & Julez} started http://www.LettuceTurnipBeetHealthBlog.Wordpress.com because we both are living very hectic lives, but we are both striving to live healthier lives, food, mind, body, & soul.”

If you would like to read more, please checked out their blog, and check out their page, “The Two Sisters”.

  I know not many of you know what I am about to say, But as I said a week or so ago, I have been pushing myself in ways that I normally wouldn’t, but because I am loosing all of this weight, it has caused me to become much more self confident, so here is a little something about me… Enjoy!

>>>>  I was a #YOGI & a #GymBuff inmy younger years, but life kicked into overgear when I graduated H.S., and I quickly got out of the lifestyle. {Go Figure.}

  I want to become stronger, not only to strengenthen my Core, but also to strengthen my walk with the Lord.

In the process of strengenthing myself, & losing these lbs in a healthy way, I want to be a YOGI again, with a kick-butt bod!!
 
Most of you don’t know this, but I used to weightlift professionally. I was going to the gym on a regular basis; I had a kick-butt trainer who was very professional; he knew what he was doing; he taught me a lot of the tricks I know to this day.
He taught me many ways to get myself motivated, and ways to keep myself pushing myself harder, until I got the results I wanted/needed.

  I worked out in his gym, 7 days a week; 4 hours a day, core, arms, legs; I combined 2 hours of YOGI into every evening/morning, {Depending on the day & the activities planned.}

I wasn’t intrested in winning, or looking sickly buff; I wanted the knowledge, I wanted to build my body THE RIGHT WAY, AND I WANTED TO FEEL “GOOOOOD” ABOUT MYSELF.

Well, I have been following a few people, (Twitter, Blogs, Tumblr, etc.) and they; for the most part; have greatly inspired me to get back into the lifestyle.

There is one young lady I strongly admire, one who has inspired me the most – mainly thru her #Twitter, #IG, & her #Website >>>>> http://www.rachelbrathen.com <<<<>>>> http://www.rachelbrathen.com/blog/ <<<<<

Life Changing Events

Hey there!!

I know I have been neglecting my precious blog, but I can honestly say I have been so stinking busy in the past several months, that I could barely keep up!

Could you ever forgive me?? I promise to do better!!

Let’s get back on topic,… There’s a lot of changes going on behind the scenes in my life right now, and I’m finally at a point where I can share some of them with you. It is all so exciting and liberating!

➝ Our Personal Goals
We have finally arrived at a time in our lives, where we are able to both do a change of careers – It is for the best! We’ve been praying long and hard for this, for about 8-10 years or so now.

  If you’ve been following our IG, or know one (or both) of us personally, it is likely you have heard us speak about it. We felt like God was clearly saying “wait”, so we simply started praying for it.

Since then, we’ve prayed that God would show both my Husband and I when to start getting the ball gradually moving, and that he’d make it clear when we were to really get things rolling. (That time is now.)

While we’ve been praying for this for so many years, it has been a little bit of a crazy adventure!

Suddenly going from ‘just praying about it’ to God saying, “here’s the life I want you to pursue.”

Now, we’re finally at a point where we are able to move forward, and we’re super stoked about it. We have been working at our separate jobs constantly praying about our situation, all the while – gathering all of our stuff (that is scattered around the house, some of which is no longer in boxes from our previous move – which occurred a little over a year and 4 months ago) and throwing it all in ‘somewhat’ organized boxes, for storage. All the while, going thru the rest in detail – like mad people!! I personally, and a bit of an ‘Organizatinal Nut’… So much that I have aquired the name – Organizational Natzi (One that I am not fond of).

What we wont take with us, will be in storage, under strict supervision, to hopefully deter any thefts.

Unfortunately, I am unable to give an exact job title, at the moment… However, I can tell you that we will be traveling all over the USA together. You never know, we may just run into you along the way! Now wouldn’t that be cool??

As D-day gets closer and closer – I will be able to tell you more of the specifics, so please keep an eye, here.

As for more regular post ‘sightings’, I am honestly going to aim for no less than 3-4 per week – but I am not making any promises!!

I will, however, be making some serious changes to our blog. Doing away with some things, and adding others.

We want to know what you think about all of this! We would LOVE to hear your feedback! We hope you all are having a lovely week, where ever you may be, and we pray for your safety.

Thanks for stopping by, and reading what we have to say! – Ami

This gal has been dreaming for her whole life, now its time for this gal to set the score for herself.

  Today couldn’t have been more awesome!! I am so excited!! I have a few interviews coming up, and I am going to the outlet mall in the morning to update my closet. {Oh boy!! I smell trouble already!}

  For one, I need to get some dress shoes, I am thinking penny loafers… ? {Old school I know, but I don’t do the whole ‘roach killer’ thing. No. Thank. You. However, I don’t recall owning a pair of penny loafers since, well… Since I was about 10? Yeah, keep on laughing.}

  Two, I need to get a few button up tops, to update my current selection… most are sweaters. {We both know 20 degree wool sweaters don’t cut it in 90 degree Georgia weather!}

  Thirdly, I have been looking my large collection of handbags for 6 months, literally!! I love my bags!! A large majority of my handbags and shoes are Nine West. I used to work for Nine West, so I got killer deals on all of their stuff. {Awesome, right??}

  But, you want go to an Interview looking great, without a killer handbag, right???

  I know what you are thinking, ‘The handbag won’t get you the job, missy!’ Yes, I know that, but I don’t exactly want to look like a complete mess, walking up in their office dressed to the nines, and toting in a mess. Let me clarify,… the main interview I am most concerned about, requires a presentation of my online portfolio, and my other skills; with this thought in mind, I am taking my laptop so If they ask about my portfolio, {and – believe me – they will} I can just open the lid, spin it around and show them till their heart is content. 

  Four, I have 2 pairs of dress pants, already, … thank goodness. 🙂 {No need to stress here, my Husband will thank me later!} 

Unfortunately, most of my stuff is packed up from our last move. {So very convient… Right?}

  In other news, …
The hubbs and I are getting a pool!!! I am supposed to go get the money out of the account tomorrow, and it should be delivered, and set up in the next few days!!! Finally!!! This gal can get her tan on!!

  Maybe, just maybe – By my birthday I may have the job of my dreams, while pushing my own businesses to the sky and beyond; and have a killer tan that makes me look so much more like the Italian gal that I am. {Hey! I can dream, can’t I?}

Check out this app – Protein Tracker

I just found a killer app on my Android from Google Play, its called: Protein Tracker. It’s a great app that calculates and counts your protein consumption every day. I just found it this am, and I’m LOVING IT!! I was a bit baffled, at first, because I am horrible with the whole “# of gems in each, fruit, veggie, other type of food” but I searched Ask.com for the conversion, and found another awesome conversion/counter, { http://www.calorieking.com/ } that really helps save my tooshie, in the # of grams of protein per item. I want to her back from my readers on this!! What do you think???  – Ami
