Pollyanna get’s FIT.

Life in California has been so amazing ( besides of course deployments – those are NO fun). We are able to do so much more compared to our life in Texas. It’s just such a good change, for the best. The weather is amazing, not to mention the beach and we can actually go to the gym now, my hubby bought us gym memberships to LA Fitness. Which has been such an amazing, new outlook on life for me.

After getting my gallbladder removed, I wanted a new start for myself. Not only for myself, but for my family. There is nothing more, that I want in life then to see my kids grow up and be there every step of the way. I want to enjoy life with them and not have my ‘health’ be an issue. I want and need,  to be at my very best for my hubby and kids.  About a month ago I started to keep track of my ‘MACROS’ and working out on a daily basis. Since doing so, I’ve dropped a few lbs and slowly but surely gaining muscle – that I never knew i had 🙂 I feel amazing as far as health goes, not to mention, fitting into some jeans that I wasn’t able to before, is also pretty darn good.

I was a bit scared to actually post this, just because of my insecurities. I figured if my pictures can motivate some my readers, then it makes it worth it. These photos are two week difference. I’m SO PROUD of myself, I still have a long way to go but these before and after photos just give me more motivation to keep on going! My hubby and munchkins need me to be  healthy and lastly I want to feel good about my self. I’m excited of what’s to come in the future. 

There are no special pills I’m taking or crazy diets, i’m just following a IIFYM ( if it fits your macros) and working out 5-6  days a week. Working out with weights ( to build muscle) and cardio (to get my body fat down). I have learned a lot from my husband, since he knows a lot about working out and eating right. I too, have been on YOUTUBE a lot, watching workout videos. Some of my favorite body builders – Kai Greene, Dana Linn Bailey, Victor Martinez.  

**I use My Fitness pal – iPhone app to keep track on my MACROS// NOT SURE WHAT IIFYM IS CLICK HERE **

I will be documenting my journey.. so stay tuned for recipes/tips/reviews.

5 Great Reasons to Drink Water

H2O has been my best friend these days. I am wanting a healthier lifestyle for myself and my family. My mom always told us to drink plenty of water to be able to live till 100 years old. I certainly would love to live that long and be able to see my children have children of their own. For this reason, is why I want a Healthy Family Hydration. Here are 5 great reason to drink Water. 


Weight loss –
Water is the best drinking source for weight loss. It’s also a great appetite suppressant (I have eliminated juices, sodas in my diet and only drinking water). Water has no fat, no carbs, no calories, no sugar. 

Healthy Heart –
We all want a healthy heart, heart is what keeps us alive. So drinking plenty of water will lower your risk of a heart attack. Drink 4-6 cups a day. We keep our water nice and cold and ready to go, so that our munchkins always have access to them. 

Boosts your Energy –

My hubby is a working out type of guy. He always reminds me to pack Adryana waters for school, because if she is thirsty, then  she is dehydrated, and its so true. If our kids or ourselves are dehydrated we feel week, no energy and those are not good. So keeping ourselves hydrated is the best thing. Especially here in Texas. 

Beautiful Healthy skin –

Growing up, my mother always reminded me to drink water, so that I didn’t have breakouts. You know (acne) ?? being that I was in the teenager stage and going through puberty. I often felt insecure about my self. Having acne was the last thing I wanted, so I drank plenty of water. Acne is bad build up in your body, so taking care of our intake will help reduce that. 

Digestive System –
My recent diet plan consist of drinking nothing but water. I noticed that my digestive system has improved dramatically. Not only that but drinking water has pretty much detoxed my body. Something that everyone should definitely do.

I Love me some Tiesta Tea
Review & Coupon Code

Tea Time anyone?? I recently went on a “Healthy Eating” lifestyle, not only to lose weight but to also be healthy person. I said goodbye to coffee and soda and hello to water and natural drinks. So these past few weeks tea has been my best friend. I like tea, especially iced tea it’s very refreshing which is just what I need, living in Texas. Tiesta Tea sent me a variety of flavors of their teas to try out.tiesta tea

Things I love about the packaging are :

  • The vibrant bold colors, totally catch your eye. They are color coded and have a brief description of what ingredients are in each and what flavor profile it may be.
  • The packages also has a brief description on how to brew, you can find more info on their site “Brewing 101”.

Eternity : Tea blends contain super fruits and white teas blends are packed full with antioxidants and other anti-againg properties.

I loved the flavor in this tea, I drank it iced and did not have to add any sweeteners (personal prefer), I just chose not to add any because I didn’t feel it needed it. The blueberry cherry flavor is very pronounced which I love.

Energizer : Black Teas are one of the more caffeinated types of tea that supplies the drinker with a clean, jitter-free, pick-me-up.

WOW!! amazing, I absolutely loved the Passion Berry. It’s very fruity which is what I love in teas, no need to add sugar which is always awesome. (Personally I believe, that if a tea is that good enough you will not need sugar, and Tiesta Tea have that.) It’s the BOMB tea, and I also drank it iced.

Slenderizer: Green Teas contain high concentrations of catechins, polyphenols and fiber that help boost your metabolism and suppress your appetite.

I’m a green tea drinker at heart, my mom has always told me its great for your digestive system and weight loss. The flavor in these teas is just beyond my tea experience. I never thought tea could taste this great. I have taken after my mother and drink tea every morning and some evenings.

If you have not yet tastes Tiesta Teas, you definitely need to get on the ball. These teas are amazing, affordable, and so many choices to choose from.
