Last week of my relaxed attitude

I decided next week I will start watching how and what I am eating again.
That means no doughnuts, lol.
This week I am PMSing and that is making me crave things I haven't eaten in like eight months! (like chips and dip for example)
This week we bought a dozen doughnuts. There are three of us, so that is four doughnuts a piece (but I don't think I ate that many).

The big news is, somehow, with all the crap I've been eating and how hungry I have been, I still LOST A POUND!

How in the heck I did that, I have no idea - but I'll take it!!

This weekend we are indulging in pasta, because I've been craving it. But next week, we are back to low carb meals.

I do want to mention, through my journey, I've been giving myself one day about every two weeks to eat something I enjoy. That normally means either ordering pizza or going out to eat - because those are things I enjoy. And it works for me. But doughnuts were never on that plan, so they need to go away after this week and stay away for a while! lol

We have a snow storm headed our way (maybe, depending on how the system comes in) so it's lasagna and meatballs this weekend. I've avoided pasta for the last ten months, so I think I deserve one weekend with a great Italian meal before I go back to avoiding it like the plague. (and seriously, I'm Italian, and pasta was always a quick meal for me, and a staple in my diet. This avoiding it is for the birds!!)

I am ready to get back at this though. My Burton Nutrition protein powder is on its way, and should get here early this week. So I can get back on my eating plan.

I am down another pound and it feels damn good!

Down another pound. I am the lowest I have been in maybe 5 years? And it feels damn good.
One pound might not sound like a lot, but it really is. It doesn't just mean 1 more pound lost, but it means all the other pounds I've lost have stayed off.
It means that I can have a day where I eat something I enjoy, like a cookie (or two) or a cinnamon roll, and not dive off the deep end and eat that way for every single meal.
It means that I CAN DO THIS.
And that is everything.
I was supposed to have my physical earlier this week, but the office had to cancel. Is it weird that I was actually looking forward to it? And I was disappointed when it was cancelled? Is it even weirder that I ENJOY stepping on the doctors office scale now? Instead of fearing how far UP she will be moving the weights I am not eager to see how much lower she has to move them since my last visit. I am proud of my accomplishments, and I should be.

Why it's called a Healthy Lifestyle

Why we call it learning a Healthy Lifestyle

Because sometimes as adults we need to re-learn how to eat correctly. Just because we eat what we like doesn't mean it should cause us to gain 10lbs like it's nothing. And trust me, I've been there.
Learning to eat healthy means making good choices every single day. It's not a diet. It's not never eating a piece of bread again. It's just making good choices.
In the last year I lost AND KEPT OFF 30lbs. That is the big part for me - keeping it off.
I wanted to lose 50lbs, and that didn't happen, but I kept off all that I lost, and I have to see that as a positive. I kept it off eating stuffing at Thanksgiving. I kept it off eating cookies and potatoes at Christmas. I kept it off over a bad three weeks in February that happened right at Valentine's day (so there was chocolate in the house, which we never have in the house). I was depressed and sad, and I ate. I ate EVERYTHING I could find. I wasn't proud of m…

Apple Cider Vinegar - have you tried it?

I jumped on the bandwagon and ordered Goli Apple Cider Vinegar gummies. I have tried to use AVC in the past, but couldn't stand the taste. (I tried it in tea, apple juice, and water, and nope, nope, and nope) I've recently run out of my daily supplement of Green Coffee Bean (GCB) and shipping is taking forever unfortunately. Well, over the last week I have noticed that I can't eat enough; I am so snacky and so hungry (more than usual). By Wednesday, I had had enough. I was eating too much for no reason. And just like my Nunna used to say, at night when I was watching tv, I wasn't hungry, but I was craving to "chew on something".

Granted, stress has been a huge factor this past week, and it will stay a factor, and let's face it, stress is always around us. I have to react better to it. And if ACV can help me not stress eat, I'll take it! 

I talked to a few folks who say this ACV works and tastes good. I won't say it is "yummy" (my probio…
