Grapefruit Me.

on January 9, 2013

Morning Wednesday!   How are you?  It’s hump day and Saturday still seems so far away!   It’s been a great week, but I feel kind of tired this morning.  When I got up yesterday morning, the first thing that I did was this:




50 Jumping jacks

5 push-ups

20 crunches

20 Mt climbers

30 second plank

7 burpees




Well that will wake ya up!   Smile












I had to take a trip down to our main office yesterday to take an IRA training class.  We have to make sure that we take refresher  classes on some of the products that we offer.  IRA’s just happen to be one of them.  We have to make sure that we can better assist the customer when they come in to visit us. 













One of the girls from work went to a special place on her lunch break yesterday….



Winking smile






This tilapia was amazing!



Before I went to bed, which by the way was at like 9:30, I wanted some tea… 





I had t be at the training class at 8:30, so this meant getting up extra early to get on the road to make it.  Geeze la weeze, it was just after 4:00 when I got up!  Which really doesn’t bother me because I like to get up early to get my day started, but whew this would explain the going to bed before 10:00 last night. 

I did do another workout before I went to work yesterday:


2nd Workout:


3X Tabata 20/10

Squat jumps



mt climbers

switch jumps

tricep dips




I set my online Tabata clock for 20 seconds on and then 10 seconds of rest.  Perform each move through and then repeat the whole session over again. 






Today I want to concentrate on feeling engaged with my customers and co-workers.  Since transferring to this current location, this is a lot easier. 




Benefits of Grapefruits:


Key Benefits

1- Half a grapefruit has over 100mg of fresh Vitamin C in a form your body will appreciate unlike the pill forms, this makes them an ideal breakfast fruit and they are available year round unlike oranges so they can be a staple of your diet.

2- Grapefruits also help dissolve in-organic calcium that may have developed around your joints this is thanks to their organic salicylic acid. So they are great if you have any joint pain or arthritis…

3- Powerful Liver Tonic, Awesome for the mornings after you partied too hard…

4- They Aid in the Digestion of food, this is thanks to the acidic properties they have. As mentioned earlier I usually will have half a grapefruit after a big meal I find its one of the best digestives going….

5- Grapefruits are rich in lycopene (the red color/pigment) and Limonoids, it helps to prevent to occurrence of tumors and cancer. These two compounds are hard to find in other fruits and vegetables but appear in abundance in grapefruits….





It’s almost time for me to get in the shower and get on the road….. I hope that you have a super day!
