I’m SO excited to share this idea with you!
I’ve been experimenting for months. First, I started making homemade chocolate milk with cocoa powder and maple syrup but my kids never went for it. The grittiness of the powder never… Read the rest of this post
I’ve been wanting to post this idea for weeks! Which is rare because I normally get an idea, make it, share it and then move on.
That’s right, I rarely make the same thing twice. It’s just how I’m wired. I love to constantly… Read the rest of this post
This is such a basic idea I almost wasn’t going to share it but then I figured, why not?
Sometimes I think we overcomplicate food. This is a reminder to myself to keep it simple.
The reactions from the family were pretty typical.
The Husband… Read the rest of this post
I might as well apologize now. Avocados may take over my blog. I’ve fallen in love.
I really didn’t think it was possible. I tried to like guacamole years ago but I never saw the appeal. I knew the health benefits of avocado and tried… Read the rest of this post
The California Avocado Commission sponsored FitBloggin‘ this year and now I’m completely smitten with avocados. Did you know an ounce of avocado has only 50 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals?
Many … Read the rest of this post
One of the biggest hurdles that must be overcome on the way to normal eating is letting myself feel whatever emotion comes up. It sounds so simple, and it is, but it’s not easy.
What happens is I have the desire to eat when I’m not hungry. That’s my first clue that some underlying emotion…Continue
I'm down half a pound this week even with my sisters party and over indulging a bit more than I had planned. Looks like I'm back in the groove after all. I knew that I was, I can feel it when I'm in game on mode. I'm super conscious of what I'm doing as I'm less than ten pounds away from my lowest last year and I'm not stopping there.
I want to get the fittest that I've ever been. Which means I really have to up the exercise game! I know I can do it. I'm a little scared to pick…Continue
Today I tried to log my feelings etc. while I ate. I still bought a few extra snacks at work that I did not need but I journaled why I was eating to try and get to the reason that I eat so much. I made a big pot of oatmeal so I have breakfast made for the entire week. Tomorrow I will make extra at dinner so I have a few lunches prepared. I am trying to be as prepared as possible so I don't get distracted.
Those snacks I ate today were not great but it was not as bad as…Continue
I am back!! We had a really nice week long vacation in Wildwood, NJ. I got back to reality and stepped on the scale, only to find a 7lb gain. What, the what? I really am not entirely sure how that was possible as I had a good week. I did splurge, yet I did not over indulge And to boot - we walked EVERYWHERE! I had over 64K steps on my fitbit for all of last week. My neighbor told me she was watching and was amazed at how much I walked. I think that the "gain" is somewhat…Continue
Yesterday was my sisters house warming party. I started the day with my usual breakfast. I packed my water, 1/2 sliced apple with almond butter, asparagus and ground turkey and a protein shake. I drank the shake in the car on the way there and when we were cutting up the cheese I ate my apples and a little later the asparagus and turkey. But I still picked on some cheese and salami. I didn't drink any alcohol which is great it doesn't make me feel good and I always pay the price. Once…Continue
Starting Weight: 220 lbs
Current Weight: 216 lbs
Total Lost: 4 lbs
I only lost 1 lbs this week :/ I refused to be discouraged though, as it was still a loss and i can think of other things I can change this week to maximize my loss. This week has been HECTIC and I haven't had much time to plan my meals. This week though i made sure I carved out 3 hours to plan, and then shop. It was tough getting it into that timeframe but i was successful :) Here is to hoping to blog…Continue
I read in a book that I am reading about Self Compassion and weight loss that suggests to "eat like a bird." It says to make every meal a songfest and savor the food and the group of people you are with. Food is something to sing about!
Today while journaling I made four lists: Why do I eat the way I do? What types of food do I eat that make me feel out of control? What times/when do I eat these types of food? and Things I do to sabotage my good health.
