It's Time to be Awesome


Yesterday I started over (wait, have I said that before?)

I watched my calories, and drank my shake for lunch (instead of eating something) and tried to get in my water. It was rough.
When you get used to eating foods, and not so healthy foods, it is hard to not eat them. And you crave them. You mistakenly think you need them.
And it sucks.
And it's hard.
But if you want it bad enough, you'll try.
And I am.
I am trying again today.
I will take this one day at a time - no, one meal at a time.

We (meaning my husband and I) ordered Fit Boards. Yep, we did. Yes, the ones you saw on Shark Tank. I'll let you know if they work.

I got very used to snacking in the morning and the afternoon and the evening. Did you?
This quarantine made me lazy. I look at the room and say "I should vacuum/dust" then I don't.
And I keep thinking I am not going anywhere this summer, so what am I fighting for?
Then I see people on tv like former WWE wrestler Michelle McCool - who birthed two children and is retired and looks freaking amazing still! Talk about washboard abs, dang.
And Days of Our Lives soap opera star Victoria Konefal. Yes, she is 20years my junior, but if I could only look half as good as she does I'd be happy!
And, no, I don't always compare myself to others, but I know where I want to be, I know how I want to look, and this current couch potato look is not it, lol!

Because I slipped over this quarantine, I am giving myself a little break. Instead of being good Monday through Friday, I will start out trying to be good Monday through Thursday, and Friday will be a meal by meal day.
I can do this.
I am the only one that can do this.

Are you having as much trouble as I am getting motivated?

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.
I am learning how to live healthy. It's not a diet, and I'…

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…

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…
