Surprising progress

So June and July were not the months I'd hoped. I want to laugh because I realized I wrote the same thing about June, and here goes a whole other month and I still haven't gotten it together. Surprisingly, I've been losing weight. I know why, but I…See More

4-Ingredient Recovery Shake With Cocoa and Greens

4 Ingredient Recovery Shake with Chocolate and Greens
I don’t talk about it much here but I’m a bit of a workout junkie. Every morning at 6 a.m. you will find me at the gym lifting heavy things with my friends. Afterwards I normally drink a quick recovery shake made from a powder but it’s time to make something a bit more homemade. Especially because a daily smoothie is an easy way to get more greens in and I can use a few more in my diet day-to-day. So I set out [...]

Quinoa With Blueberries and Feta

Finished Bowl of Quinoa with Blueberries and Feta
I always forget about quinoa and then when I whip up a quick dish I remember how awesome it is. The texture, the way it soaks up the flavor of anything you add to it, the health benefits — it makes a great quick meal or side dish. The other day I turned a serving into a great lunch. Using the leftover Basil-Mint Dressing I made for my shrimp salad as a flavor base I added a bit [...]

Green Salad With Shrimp and Basil-Mint Dressing

Green Salad with Shrimp and Basil Mint Dressing Plated
I used to be one of those people who “saved” seafood for dinners out. I think it was a remnant of my childhood. We rarely ate seafood at home because it was too expensive. In the summers when I’d visit my dad on Long Island we’d fish and broil the fresh flounder we caught that day. Sometimes we’d steam clams or crabs we caught on my grandfather’s old, rickety clam boat. If we caught it we ate it but I have no [...]

Creamy Apple Pie Oatmeal From Scratch

Apple Pie Oatmeal
Apple Pie Oatmeal is one of my oldest posts here on GreenLiteBites. Eight years ago I shared how I mixed one of those flavored oatmeal packets with applesauce for breakfast. Two years later I dumped the packets and made a version with old-fashioned oats and artificial sweetener. Now that the kids are older I rarely buy applesauce and I’ve pretty much eliminated all artificial sweeteners from my diet. I don’t even buy them anymore. This morning, using what I had [...]

A Breakfast Cobb Salad From the Shore!

Breakfast Cobb Salad with Grapefruit, Avocado, and Egg
I’m on vacation at the fabulous Jersey Shore and living it up with The Boys. All three of them are sleeping right now. They are wiped from our first marathon day at the beach. I, on the other hand, already got up, took a short run and made this fabulous breakfast! I do my best every year to stock our beach rental with fresh produce. We stop at a farmers market on the way in and bring whatever produce I have [...]

Surprising progress

Posted by Dee on July 29, 2015 at 4:48pm 0 Comments

So June and July were not the months I'd hoped. I want to laugh because I realized I wrote the same thing about June, and here goes a whole other month and I still haven't gotten it together. 

Surprisingly, I've been losing weight. I know why, but I am still surprised because I haven't been meeting my specific goals for how to do food and exercise. But what has happened, is that I haven't been a sugar fiend. I actually have left dessert items alone most of the month, and like…

And where did July go?

Posted by Paula on July 28, 2015 at 11:31pm 1 Comment

It has taken me by surprise that almost 7 months of 2015 are gone. I am not where I want to be and I think I need to come up with a plan. I know I want to avoid those diets that are not sustainable over the long term. It has to be a forever deal & something I like and want to do. I do not want to calorie count. I do not mind the 21 day fix diet program. It is portion control. I count containers, not long lists of numbers. I don't eat meat any longer & dairy is very limited. I feel so… Continue

Still Truckin'

Posted by Christy on July 28, 2015 at 2:32pm 2 Comments

Not a whole lot to report here. I'm still truckin' along. I didn't make it to my WW meeting this week because I had my dad, sister, and her 4 kids in town all last week and they were just leaving on the day of my meeting. I HAD to make it to the grocery store because with that many people in one house, we couldn't keep stocked. While I had lots of indulgences while they were here, I still stayed on track pretty well with my meals. Even though I didn't go to my meeting, I weighed at home at…

It's been a little while. I've been working my ass off then I got lazy (well deserved). I completed my triathlon last Sunday. The run was about what I expected and took me the exact time that I planned. The bike ride was rough. The hills sucked and doing it after running three miles was hard. The bike ride took longer than I planned. The swim wasn't hard the worst part was getting my breathing regulated enough so it was in a pattern instead of panting. I passed like 4 people in the pool. I…

Is fat my destiny?

Posted by Paula on July 25, 2015 at 2:35pm 7 Comments

Weight - Up 0.6 pounds. I am getting no where!!!!



Mood- Feeling like shit. Fat & last week I had a root canal so basically it has been a shit week.



Exercise- Jogged 3 days & biked 3 days & I gained weight. Ugh!



My goal this week? Eat less. Eat wholesome. Veggies & fruit need to take center stage. I know what to do. I want to go back to the Dr. There has to be a reason why I can't lose weight. I do not want to starve myself by doing a diet I can't… Continue

Karma

Posted by LindaB on July 25, 2015 at 10:30am 2 Comments

Hey Friends --- well, karma bit me in the ass last weekend. 

There I was minding my own business -- sticking to my diet plan and getting in my exercise when Friday evening neither the hubs nor I felt like cooking.  He had this bright idea to send the kids out for some fast food from Hardees and I went along with the idea.  BAD CHOICE, Linda!!  BAD CHOICE!

I got two cheeseburgers and fries. .... BAD CHOICE.  I hadn't eaten that shit in months.  I have been eating clean and…

Day 1

Posted by Alisha on July 24, 2015 at 4:45pm 2 Comments

I am new to this site and plan to start on Monday. Any encouragement or tips about the site would be appreciated. I'm 43 yrs old and need to lose 80 pounds. My weight is really taking a toll on my body and I have to succeed this time. I've tried diet pills and quick weight loss diets and none of that has worked for me. This time I plan on eating healthy and exercising. Wish me Luck!!

Drifting

Posted by Dee on July 24, 2015 at 4:20pm 2 Comments

I had three important meetings that required a lot of preparation- two last week, and one this past Monday. Totally became an excuse to blow off my exercise. Actually, not just an excuse- it really is harder to follow routines around exercise and eating, when you are stressed and pressed for time. And then afterwards, I was so tired that I just didn't want to give up that extra hour of sleep in order to get up in run. 

I have been doing better on eating, simply because I…

Why no changes?

Posted by Marsella Crudo on July 24, 2015 at 3:08pm 1 Comment

I always felt discomfort because of my excess weight. The only thing I kept dreaming of was to get healthier and thinner, of course. Especially, after I heard about the Duromine. Many people say they are very effective and pretty safe, if taken according to the prescription. I guess, if my diet doesn’t work anymore, I’ll choose them. That’s for sure. But for now, I am on my diet, hoping I…

Exercise will not work

Posted by Paula on July 23, 2015 at 11:54pm 2 Comments

Exercise will not work with out diet. I am still struggling. I think it is not so much what I eat, but it must be too much since the scale is not going down. I know I need to plan better, but I am too damn lazy. So what I have been trying is eating when I am hungry & making better choices. I am nervous about weigh in this week, but I have got to get on the scale so I can make adjustments, but if it is up I will be so angry at myself.
