A simple place to capture the moments of my crazy life

Pictures Don’t Lie

As most of you know, Peter and I have just finished our 1st, 90 day challenge with Body by Vi!! Our challenge journey started Tuesday October 11, 2011 and finished January 8, 2012!! What a wild and crazy ride it was, I can’t believe the changes in our life, in 90 days. Truly incredible really, to change one’s life in the course of a single 90 day period. We started this journey with some friends, because as with anything in life, working as a team makes everything that much more enjoyable. As a team of 4, we set out to change our health, lives and prosperity. Together we stood as one to fight the war on OBESITY, to change our lives, and be an example to those around us. As a team, we are slowly but surely winning that challenge!!

I know in the past, I have made deals with myself to try to lose the weight, go to the gym, I know how to eat healthy, what to eat more of and what to avoid. But did I do it??? Not really, I would try, I would make an attempt, I would have the best intentions, but I would fail time and time again. I tried, pills, supplements, weight watchers, Herbal Magic, SlimFast, Apple Cider pills, protein powders, portion control, high protein diets, low carb diets, talked to my doctor too, took appetite suppressants, Beverly Hills Weight Loss, exercise you name it, aside from surgery I tried it. So, what was missing?? The lack of willpower?? No I don’t think so, I have been clean and sober for almost 17 years, I know about willpower, and avoiding things that will hurt me, I know how to take control of my cravings and my life, but why did nothing else work?

Well, there are a couple of reasons, the first being, it obviously wasn’t time for me to get serious, I needed to hit a certain breaking point before I could really make the decision to get healthy. Much the same as the alcoholic, who before they can truly get clean and sober, must hit rock bottom. What is rock bottom?? What does it look like?? Well, for me, in this particular journey, it was staring at me every day in my bathroom mirror, this face, my face, getting puffier and puffier, my arms getting bigger, my waist increasing, the lack of desire to look at myself in the mirror. There were other signs too, lack of energy, lack of ambition, lack of desire, negativity the list goes on and on. Many of you have experienced that same things. The other reason, why nothing else worked, was actually quite simple,  it didn’t fit into my lifestyle. Excuse?? Possibly, but that’s the reality, dieting just didn’t fit into my lifestyle. I am also a LOVER of food, good food, rich food, sweet food, salty food, shit I’m in the food industry, I cook for a living, how do you not eat it?? Sample?? Indulge? But the bottom line is I LOVE FOOD, I don’t believe I am a food addict, as I had traveled that train of thought for a period of time.

What’s different this time?? The product, yes, the company, yes, me – MOST DEFINITELY , I WANT IT NOW!!! I don’t want to die before all my girls are grown and married, with babies, I want to see grandbabies, and great-grandbabies, but I definitely was NOT going to get there doing the things I was doing. So, when OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS …. eventually YOU TAKE IT and RUN!! Which is EXACTLY what Peter and I have done. We saw the opportunity to change our lives FOREVER, to get healthy, to teach our kids to be healthy, to love life, and honestly FALL IN LOVE with each other all over again. Does this sound like a line to you?? It possibly does, because it’s definitely a different side of Krista, than most of you are used to seeing, but this is ME, I want to live, today I CHOOSE LIFE!!! I truly can’t see myself stopping until I have reached all my goals, all of my goals, to improve my HEALTH, LIFE and PROSPERITY!! And I AM loving every minute of it. Does that mean I don’t falter from time to time … heck ya I’m human, I’m not a robot, but today, instead of letting it get me down, I just brush off the dirt and get back on the ride of a lifetime. I have a picture in my mind today of what a year from now looks like … and it is so different from what I see in front of me today!! I’m excited, and I wish I could share even a portion of my excitement with each and every one of you.

I am not on a diet, I’m on a total lifestyle change, body mind and spirit. Am I losing weight and inches, HELL YA I am, but it is so much more than that. Its about living life to the fullest, about changing the old records that are out of date and taking up way too much space in my mind, it’s about letting my spirit and trusting in a God, much greater than me, to lead me. Today I can look at myself in the  mirror, and see the beginning of the person I WANT TO BE, —- ME!! Today, I am taking control of my life, and changing it in a way that wasn’t possibly 99 days ago, it wasn’t even on my radar of possibilities!! AMAZING!!!! One simple challenge – has changed my life FOREVER. Changed the way I look at the world, the people I meet everything, and I can promise you this, it’s a change I wasn’t really even looking for, an opportunity that I didn’t really think was possible. BUT there came a KNOCK and I answered!!! I wasn’t looking for a sign … but I FOUND ONE!!!

Here is a visual image for you … of what a lifestyle change looks like …

This is just the beginning … the BEST is yet to come!! I want to invite each and every one of you reading this to join me today, in this journey, of LIFE HEALTH and PROSPERITY. What do you have to lose???

Peace and Blessings

Krista

AMAZING!!!!

Peter and I started the Body By Vi, 90 Day Challenge, 87 days ago, the Tuesday after Canadian Thanksgiving, and we honestly haven’t looked back since. I would love to be able to say that we haven’t “swayed” from the challenge from time to time, but well I would be lying, seeing as we just came through the Christmas season!! But having the shakes around during the holidays definitely made some decisions easier that’s for sure!!

Actually, that’s the thing I love the most about the challenge (other than the results), is the simplicity of it. Peter and I are crazy busy parents of 4 girls at home, one away from home, the girls are all soccer players, etc, we are on the move all the time, and the challenge has allowed us to STOP the INSANITY of the Drive Thru windows!!! We just make a shake and away we go 🙂 So simple, tasty and FREE!!!

Since the start of the challenge, I have lost a total of 25.4 pounds and 15 inches, and Peter has lost 16.6 pounds and 16 inches, for a combined total of 42 pounds and 31 inches!!! WHAT A FEELING!!!! I have lost 2 and a half – 10 pound bags of potatoes, do you have ANY idea how good I feel??? How much energy I have??? It’s ridiculous really, just from changing a couple of habits and I feel amazing!! I LOVE THIS CHALLENGE!!! I’m actually excited to get started on my next one 😉 This has been a total lifestyle change for us, it’s not a diet, it’s a way of life. I simply can not feed myself the same amount of nutrients in the course of a day as I can by drinking my shakes!! I can’t wait until next week at the end of this first challenge to post our BEFORE and AFTER photos!!!

I have a question for you all …

It’s about QUALITY not Quantity

Information provided from Audrey Sommerfeld, Senior Vice-President of Marketing with ViSalus Sciences regarding the protein blend in the Shake Mix.

When Dr. Witherly and I created the shake, we wanted to create the perfect ‘meal’ to help people build and maintain lean muscle, burn fat, and feel healthier.   The Tri-Sorb protein blend is a unique blend of highly absorbable proteins. First we use non-GMO soy that has been processed to remove isoflavones that can impact estrogen. Why soy? It is a complete protein, easily digested, and adequate consumption can help the body reduce cholesterol and c-reactive protein. Studies show that soy can build lean muscle as good, and in some studies better than whey proteins.   We then use a whey concentrate, and the newest technology in whey hydrolysate. This is the most concentrated and ‘clean’ protein on the market today, and is very expensive. The key reason is it builds lean muscle. The FDA allows it to be called a ‘fat loss accelerant’ as a result..the only protein that can use that claim. Our proteins have been specially processed to remove fat, lactose, and carbs.   We add in the Aminogen, a patented and clinically tested amino acid to aide protein absorption. Many body builders buy this product in nutrition stores to aid their body. We include it.   The key is that not all proteins are created equal. If you read the nutritional labels, some will use gelatin to ‘spike’ the grams of protein. Gelatin is great for skin and hair, but not so good at building muscle. Some use milk powder or milk protein. Great for bone health, but not so good at building lean muscle. Some use whey, which is ok, but only about 75-80% absorbed. So with ours, it’s quality, not quantity…and we absorb more because of our blend.

2012 the year of …

Happy New Year

to all my family, friends and followers!!

Wishing you all the best this year and may everything you do be

filled with love, joy and happiness!

One question, what’s going to be different for you this year?

This year is going to be so different for the Moore Family, than any other year, this is the year we are going to get HEALTHY together as a family, we are going to start LIVING life instead of watching it pass us by and we are going to experience prosperity for the first time ever!! We have big dreams for 2012, and there is only ONE way to get there – work hard, run hard, and play hard together as a family. Today, the Moore’s will let NO ONE stand in the way of their dreams of the future. Our lives started changing 83 days, when Peter and I started our first 90-day challenge with Body by Vi. We have lost weight, inches, gained energy, confidence and the beginning of a total lifestyle change. 2012 is going to be lived out in 90-day increments to meet each one of our goals for our family!! We are going to live stronger and laugh louder together as a family!! We are going to work together, play together, dance together and love together. We will succeed in our goals because we know today that WE CAN DO IT!!! Nothing is going to stand in our way, because as a family united with a common goal we will be an unstoppable force. This is the year of taking control of our lives and destiny. Negativity is no longer a welcome part of our world, we will run from it, learn from it and throw it away. We will stand together as the clock strikes 12:00am, January 1, 2013 and together say I TOLD YOU SO!!! This is OUR year!!!


2012 the year of

… RETIREMENT!!!!
