Coming to my senses

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Well, it's been going good. I am onto week 3 of this new weight loss adventure. After the marathon, I kept eating like I was still running as much each week. It did not do a body good. So now, I have some pounds to lose and it's been pretty good. I am back to being fully committed and back to my senses when it comes to food.

Portion control, planning my meals and exercise, and just focusing on my health has been really nice. I feel more in control of my hunger and my body. I was just out of control for a while, eating whatever and however much I wanted and it was crazy. I would wake up full and go to bed SUPER full. It was not way to live. So, I am happy to be back on track, happy to have my goals in sight again, and happy happy happy to already see changes.

Ode to Quinoa

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

I love it! That's all.

Tonight I ate romaine lettuce, with a quinoa mix on top. I made the quinoa yesterday with zucchini, summer squash, and onion chopped up in it. I put some shrimp on top with a honey soy glaze that I made.

Delicious! I am kind of enjoying cooking clean for myself everyday. I am starting to see some progress.

Also- found a great new app. for people who want to be spontaneous with exercise. It's called Sworkit. You can either choose yoga moves or strength training and how much time you want to exercise for. I put in 5 min. and it will give you a new exercise every 30 sec. It has a tone, to let you know when to switch. It was really fun and adds up. I did 15 min of various things tonight and enjoyed it. Perfect for when you are just watching tv or something.

Ok, peace out, peeps!

Lettuce Wrap

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

So gooooooood!!!

I made a lettuce wrap with ground turkey. It was delicious, filling, and right around 200 calories! For dinner! And I feel satisfied! And I have calories leftover for a snack later! Amazing!

Here it is:



Recipe created by me-

99% lean ground turkey
1 tbs of olive oil
1/2 cup of frozen corn
1/2 cup of peas
southwest seasoning/garlic salt
spinach

I cooked all of that together. Then, I took romaine hearts, doubled them up, and put some pico de gallo in them.

It was so good! But messy, be careful! Let me know if you try it.

Momentum Building

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

I feel that momentum building again. I have had 2 GREAT days. I have exercised. I have eaten within calories. I feel great! Now, to keep it going. I have started to eat almost the same things each day. I am going to change it up each week to keep things fresh, but I have enjoyed not worrrying or having to think about what I am going to eat. This week it was:

Breakfast-
Oatmeal
Small, skim latte

Snack-
Orange

Lunch-
Turkey Sandwich
Cherry tomatoes

Snack-
Fiber granola bar

Dinner-
Shrimp stir fry

Delicious! And, shockingly, I haven't felt overly hungry at all. Just satisfied.

Gotta keep going!

    Yay! I'm glad your starting to feel that roll! I know what you mean about eating the same things. I like to eat basically the same things for breakfast and sometimes lunch. It does make it easier when it comes to planning!
