1st week here and gone

Standard

Well, it’s nearly over. I can’t believe how fast the first week of school went. I have the feeling that this is going to be a great year. I forget how awesome freshman are. I haven’t taught them since my first year….7 years ago. The innocence mixed with cockiness (trying to compensate for being low man on totem pole) is interesting to watch.

Is it just me or do 14-15 year olds seem smaller than they were ten years ago???

I promised some interesting stories…sorry to say that nothing has been noteworthy quite yet. I do have a student who I plan on making my top priority. He is a student that puts up a lot of defensive…acts hard (tough) but I think there is more than mets the eye. We will call him “J.”  I hope to see him positively improve over the course of the year.

P.S.  Thank goodness for Advocare’s SPARK…not sure I could have made it through 2pm without one. Teachers….this stuff is your friend. One little packet gives you awesome energy and mental focus without feeling jittery and its sugar free. Contact me and I can share more about it. SPARK comes in 6 delicious flavors!!!

It all comes down to one thing…

You have to wonder at times what you’re doing out there. Over the years, I’ve given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement.
– Steve Prefontaine

I am so glad to be back running again. I can’t even explain to you how much I have missed it. This coming from a girl who, once upon a time, hated running….with a passion. I’m not sure the exact moment it all changed for me. One day I hated it…the next I craved it. It has become my escape…my refuge.

I realized that I was not competing with anyone other than myself. The race is within me….and I love it.

Because of the extreme weather in Texas I have been on the treadmill, but as SOON as the temperature begins to drop….pavement here I come!!!

Juicing is so good for so many reasons!!!!

I recently told you that my hubs and I were going to start juicing…veggies and fruits, that is. We have been doing it for almost two weeks and I have to say….I really LOVE it.

We decided….after watching a late night infomercial, to go with the Nutribullet. It is so incredibly easy and versatile. Clean up is a breeze and the choices are limitless.

I even have my kids drinking juices now.

20120719-130031.jpg

I have had several requests for juice recipes and I will gladly share; however, I usually just make it up on the fly. I do have a couple of standbys so he you go….

Morning Drink:
Handful of kale
4 baby carrots
1 naval orange, peeled
1 tbsp of raw shelled hemp seeds
Water and ice
Blend

Frog juice (my kids’ fave):
Handful of spinach
Cored apple
Peeled orange
Water and ice
Blend

The benefits from juicing are incredible.
-lower cholesterol
-reverse aging process
-healthier hair and skin
-helps digestion process
-increased energy
-weight loss
-and much more

As I am starting my Advocare 24 Day Challenge, I find it very easy to stay full on healthy choices while juicing.

I would LOVE to hear your own favorite concoctions. Please comment and share!!!!

Starting it off right…

Those of you that follow my Tweets may have noticed my comments about a HBO documentary I am currently watching, The Weight of a Nation. I am in the first of 5 episodes and a fire has been lit. The statistics are atrocious and I want to do more to help this fast growing epidemic of obesity.
18% of children in the United States are overweight
68.8% of Americans are overweight or obese

Those of you who are not overweight, please don’t think that we are not in this problem together. Your health insurance premiums will increase and medical costs will skyrocket.

As a mom, I feel that I need to do my part in making sure my children do not become a statistic. I am chicken nugget and fish stick guilty. Knowing that fat is good for my kids’ brain development; however they will soon be moved to healthier options. The problem lies in what they are already accustom to. I know this process will be difficult at first, but I will need to persist and be patient….and creative.

As an Advocare distributor, my friends and family see that I care about my health and fitness. I share these products and the results.

One thing is for sure….my kids are active! We rarely just sit around and watch TV. There is lots of basketball, running, golf and swimming occurring in our household.

My dilemma lies outside my home. What can a normal girl do to reach more people and impact more lives? I try and set the best example for my students, only healthy snacks allowed in my classroom. Well, that is a start!

My heart longs for more! This is a topic I am praying about, meditating on, and will hopefully find my answer.

What do you do to make your mark on the health of our youth and the weight of our nation?

Day 3…I feel like a brand new me!

Standard

So I am on day 3 of the Lean in 13 challenge and I feel like a brand new person. I am not grouchy today, my body feels great and I have lost 4 lbs and .5% body fat since I started on Monday!!!!

Those of you that want more of a challenge, I would recommend this plan to you!

Those that are wanting to lose some pounds and inches and gain energy then you need to check out the 24 Day Challenge (<— click link). email for details ammiehill@gmail.com

Lean in 13…ummm YES please!!!

Standard

What is this new program you ask? Well, it is a regimented plan to burn fat and increase lean muscle. The zig zag formula continually keeps your body guessing therefore, you burn at a better capacity. The plan is a 3 day burn/1 day refuel X4…then a “free” day (don’t get too carried away!)

I would love for you to join me on this physical, mental and spiritual battle. It will be tough…you will be hungry in the beginning….BUT the rewards…oh..the rewards will be sweet. You will need certain coaching and supplements for this program…I can help. Click on my link to check out my site and message me for details or any questions!!

Freedom never felt this good…

Standard

I knew it was coming…I just didn’t know when I would start feeling the effects. Well, the time has come and though I am not completely there, I am starting to feel the freedom.

  • FREEDOM from baby weight. After my second round of the 24 Day Challenge by Advocare, I am sitting at a healthy 124 lbs and now I am looking to put on muscle. I am actually at peace with my body…but there is always room for improvement, right??? Here is a before and after pic of my journey. I am very pleased with the results. CClick —>; 3 months time I am actually ready for bathing suit shopping!
  • FREEDOM from debt. Although we are not debt free now, we are well on our way. I feel very confident in this company. I foresee us being completely debt free (with the exception of the mortgage) this time next year! I have to see and believe it for it to happen.

I have never felt this passionate about an endeavor in my life, and the Lord knows I have tried a multitude of things. What other company can I be a part of that not only helps others, but also helps my feel good and helps me not have to worry about finances so that I can be the wife and mother I am intended to be.

Thank you to all those individuals that have helped me along the way. Not only my AdvoCare family, but those that believe in me and understand my why! TO those unbelievers, no worries…you only make me work harder. I have faith on my side and that’s all I need. Correction on second photo…should say Feb 2012!

Ritalin Vs. Spark

Standard

Texas Tech University has  conducted research with ADHD children. The experiment tested the effects of Ritalin against Spark, the energy drink put out by AdvoCare. Spark beat out Ritalin 3 out of 4 times and tied on the 4th test!!!!! Check out the proof!!!

I have always been an advocate for methods other than drug control…but this here is in black and white.

My husband and I are not only AdvoCare advisors, but we are loyal customers. I don’t think I could get through my day without my Spark. It gives me mental clarity and energy that gets me through my day, as well as provides a Plan B income for my family! Message me for details!
