Yesterday was day 30, and it was a milestone for me.
This past month was so incredibly hard. Please understand that I am not just working on wrinkles, I am working on a full anti-aging regimen.
Body, brain, hormones and skin are getting some kind of treatment.
I knew going into this that there wouldn’t be much results visibly in the first month.
There is definitely progress but most of it is not something I can take a picture or video of to show you. In fact I took a few pictures yesterday and they look awful, I have been sick for the past week and it shows.
All I can do is share how it feels and what’s happening.
My hormones have been zinging all over the place. LOL my poor husband, he doesn’t know what to do when I cry and I have been crying a lot. I know that sounds bad, but it is exactly the opposite. I feel better than I have in awhile.
I don’t know if being sick had anything to do what I am doing, but I felt awful. My whole body hurt, I barely ate, I cried a lot and took naps regularly. I tried to workout but my body hurt so bad I didn’t get far. Doing the daily anti-aging routine I had been doing seemed beyond what I could manage. The only thing I managed to stay consistent on was taking my nutritional supplements.
After going through all that, I feel better than I have in a long time. I haven’t cried for a few days now, I don’t hurt near as bad and I have been more focused and productive.
I have resumed my workouts and amazingly enough they are a bit easier and I feel stronger. In fact I am doing a boot camp, which means I am doing 4-14 days in a row then I will back off to 3 days a week. Today was day 3 and I plan on doing 14 days in a row. All 3 days I did the whole workout without any breaks and I didn’t feel like I was dying which is how I have felt up until now. The workouts have been extremely painful especially on the knees and I would shake fiercely until now. I still hurt a little but I can push through.
Nights have been better too. The last 2 nights I went to sleep easily and slept soundly. I usually wake up a few times a night at least and sometimes it takes forever to get to sleep. I even got up early without an alarm clock and felt rested.
Apparently I am changing from the inside out. LOL
I am looking for long term changes so this all works for me. I figure if I can change what’s on the inside eventually the outside will match. Also I believe the changes on the inside are the most important.
I did do a few different brain tests as well, following are my results as of 05/20/2018:
- Memory test 116 (top 6%)
- Reflex test 264 millisecond average (top 17%)
- Concentration test 24 (top 8%)
This one is from an app I found, it just gives an overall score and mine was 482.
In a few months I will take them again and see if I have improved.
Going forward, I will continue on my path and try to be as consistent as I can. It will still be hard, but I feel I have reached a milestone where things are getting better.
Thank you so much for reading and following along on my journey, God bless and have a wonderful day!!

I did not take as many as in the past, I did these all by myself and I am terrible at it. My husband wasn’t home to help and I couldn’t figure out how to take the others. There wasn’t much change as you can see and I had been sick as I said above.
