I'm stuck...


I'm stuck...

The scale has not moved in the last 3 weeks. I mean, it's good it didn't go up, but it just stayed the same. And that is disheartening. I can't pinpoint what I need to change. I've been doing my shakes, watching the junk (depriving myself of things I want and making better choices), and eating more salads.


The only things I can think of is I'm not exercising and some nights I've been breaking my own rule and eating a snack after 8pm.

Granted, I did eat some lunchmeat yesterday. Maybe I'm retaining water from that.
I wish I could go to the gym, but I'm not comfortable yet due to COVID. Yes, I'm over cautious about it (and that's my choice) but I wish things were back to normal. I liked using the treadmill and then a few machines like the Ab thingy.

I try not to let the scale own me, but watching numbers drop is more motivation then numbers staying the same.
I need to get outside and walking.

Motivation is key - right? I am motivated. But I need to see the numbers move. (down, preferably, lol)
I wonder do I need to do a cleanse to jump-start my weight loss?
I've been busy working on new books, which requires sitting, all day. And by the time I take a break, it is only to make dinner. But I need to force myself to make that change and get some exercise in my day.

It's Friday, and I'll cut myself a little slack this weekend, but I think I'll try to stick to healthy eating for most meals. And it's a long weekend here. But I have to try - for me.

Make good food choices and stay safe!

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…
