HAVA CUP of Coffee?… Don’t most of us love that first cup in the morning. It is great, no it’s wonderful, and those that don’t just don’t get it.

I have been drinking 3-5 cups and more of coffee my whole adult life. Last year I was diagnosed with having Arterial Flutter, (affectionately known as AFib,  which annoying at best. You will be amazed on how many people have this and blow it off or do not get it diagnosed).

After several panic attacks and ER visits and stays for observation and thinking I was going to die, testing my reactions and trying some drugs to control it, not much was working well to keep it at bay. Under the care of Kaiser, I have been quite pleased with my Doctors and Nurse Practitioners, NPR Denise Middleton, Cardiologist Dr. Mark Timothy Deboer, Dr. David Cesario, M.D. Electro-cardiologist specialist in ablations.   
Daily, Doctors experiment on what they should do for you. You are their science experience and they have less than 15 minutes at a time to figure out what prescribe or do next. The old, “take two aspirins and call me in the morning” Why do you think the medical industry calls Doctors work a Practice? My opinion, Afib is one of the most illogical health issues on the planet. Hard to pin down a regiment that will work. You must be proactive and work with them, and use your own logic and give them solid information, so they can make better choices.

Early on, I was asked by my Doctor to stop drinking coffee, and I blew that off until about 40 days ago. I stopped drinking “cold turkey” and any symptoms, no headaches, a little tired, but thats it. Then I realized that I really did like that one cup in the morning, so I allowed myself one cup in the morning, none at night.

15 days into it, with LITTLE or NO  coffee, I have little or no symptoms of Afib, yes I am more tired, but that is ok. I have had better, less interrupted nights sleep than ever.

It has been quite some time now and like any good system that you use, if it works don’t tweak it much.

I have had my days where I have not juiced but I punish myself and eat less and double up on my juice and maybe change up my exercise.

Sugar is my #1 enemy, but I have been doing good and still weigh 187-189 consistently, and is still the 17LBS I lost when I did my Juicing reboot.

Remember, each person has different metabolic rates, that are affected by age, workouts, and types of foods you eat on a daily basis. It seems like it is easier to lose weight when you work at home or close to the office, or your work,  because you can control what you eat. Keep Raw Almonds, apples, and Carrots handy.

I find that eating 2 peanut butter filled celery sticks in the morning after my coffee really helps keep me focused and not hungry till about 10Am.

To Beachbody customer service, quality control

I love the P90X DVD program and will be using it.

I want to speak of the poor quality of the bolts and general poor construction of the Jungle Jam Chin-Up Bar. I am going to assume that the Integrity that Tony Horton would have had for this product is LONG gone or faded.

I have seen complaints of the bolts and flimsy construction of this since 2008 on Blogs and message boards and it still has not been properly addressed.

I tighten the bolts and they come lose and flatten the tubes to be lose again within the 10 minutes of use and this it repeats itself until you cannot tighten them anymore or the finish caps come off.

The message boards say they buy new bolts from Home Depot to fix the issue but you still end up with weak tubes. Need I say more.

As much as I can help it and I will write a blog telling of this quality to prevent others from getting this and being too lazy to return, which is the mindset of a company like Beach Body.

there, I feel so much better now.

Please refund my money on this item RMA 77699.
