Busy, busy keeping up with it all! I always seem to manage it even when I have multiple projects going, work, work outs, visitors, and more! This experiment is becoming more and more a natural part of my life! It doesn’t feel so much like hard work. We’ll see how the cravings are this week with visitors! Read on below to see how my week went.
Sunday, March 3rd:
I started the day with a 6:00am TurboFire HIIT 25 Class + 30 minutes of full-body strength training + 10 minutes of full-body stretching on the Power Plate. Again I was happy to complete my workout before I put my students on the ice at competition today.
A great weekend of competition at California State Games … 5 Golds, 7 Silvers, 4 Bronze, and 4 Pewter Medals! Congratulations to my students! It’s especially impressive because most of my students were in a higher level than the previous competition!
Day 99 complete and a successful competition today!
Monday, March 4th:
I did some cleaning and organizing in between work today. I had today as a rest day for working out, although I did movement and light exercise with the cleaning.
My parents arrived for a week and a half visit. It’s great to see them again!
We went for dinner at Oggie’s where they put the rice cheese that I eat on their gluten-free pizza. So, I got to have a gluten-free, dairy-free pizza with green pepper and onions! We also shared a hummus and veggie dish as an appetizer.
Day 100 complete! I had a yummy meal at Oggie’s!
Tuesday, March 5th:
I did TurboFire Fire 30 Class + 10 minutes full-body stretching! My mom did TurboFire with me today. It was fun to work out together and show her the workout program I’ve been doing.
I spent some good quality time with my parents and family before and after work today. It was lovely!
I’ve been listening to Brian Tracy’s fantastic audiobook Goals! How to Get Everything You Want Faster Than You Ever Thought Possible in the car and when I work out!
Day 101 complete. Quality time is the best!
Wednesday, March 6th:
Today I completed the TurboFire HIIT 15 Class + Core 20 Class + 10 minutes of full-body stretching on the Power Plate.
My mom broke her wrist today, so I spent the day with her at the doctor when I wasn’t working. I’d appreciate any prayers for a healthy recovery for her! It’s difficult for me to see her in pain. She’s such a tough woman and she’s in great physical shape.
Day 102 complete. It’s so easy to take good health for granted.
Thursday, March 7th:
A day in La Jolla … fun with some shopping! It’s so great to not only feel good but to look good also. I don’t shop that often but it’s such fun when I do. Normal work schedule, evening with family, and getting things done.
Day 103 complete. Shopping fun today!
Friday, March 8th:
I did the TurboFire HIIT 15 Class + 30 minutes of full-body strength exercises (this was extra to make up for yesterday) + 10 minutes of full-body stretching on the Power Plate. Full day of work, then we watched Taken 2 at home. Good movie and very intense.
Day 104 complete. A fun Friday night!
Saturday, March 9th:
For my workout today, I did TurboFire Fire 30 Class.
I worked in the morning and afternoon. Got some tasks done, then we had a fun night eating at Sammy’s and watching OZ: The Great and Powerful! Great movie except for the parts I fell asleep in. Lol. It doesn’t sound like I missed much, though, as I remember almost everything that happened when we all talked about it afterwards. Late night movies and early mornings don’t mix well.
Day 105 complete … movie night!
The week went well! It’s always busy to keep up a normal work schedule, workouts, and have visitors. I’m getting more and more comfortable with sticking to my fitness and nutrition experiment with visitors. I’ve have lots of training lately. The cravings are still there when I’m around lots of desserts, but I just don’t focus on them. It’s so much easier than it used to be!
Yay! I’ve completed my 15th week out of 26 weeks!

My own variation of a sugar-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free vegetarian diet:
Sugar-free consists of no sugar, sugar substitutes, honey, or other equivalent except for a small amount of preferably natural sweetener that is already in a product such as bread or whey protein.
Dairy-free includes a few exceptions. I’m including whey protein. I also have times of experimenting with Greek yogurt and regular yogurt to see if they are beneficial to me. In addition, I include eggs in my diet, which is a variation from a vegan diet.
Gluten-free also includes a few exceptions. I include Ezekiel Bread or sprouted bread, which is close to gluten-free in how it’s digested but not actually gluten-free. Some gluten-free plans say oats are fine and some do not. I include oats in my plan.
My fitness plan:
My exercise consists of workouts 6 days per week. The only exception can be if I do an additional workout on a day to count for one of the days or on a recovery week every few months.
