"Our love of healthy eating" and it's all good! *\(^o^)/*

Thursday, August 21, 2014



Today, I made this wonderfully delicious looking meat loaf. Doesn't it looks yummy? I've been trying/flowing ETL style ( mostly whole foods, plant based foods.) of living for a while. This is "Apple walnut lentil loaf." I just can't believe myself, that I've made this. Yes me!, I have never dreamed of me!? Making vegetarian meat loaf? First of all, I never thought of I'll be enjoy and choose to cook/eat vegetarian style meal like this. Lol)) emoticon

This is my very first time making this particular recipe and I didn't fallow the recipe to "T." I even forgot to put the oats flour that recipe called for. I milled my oat meal and made flour for it, but when I put it loaf ingredients together, I forgot to put it in. Lol.)) But even with missing ingredient it was soooo yummy! Its even looks like real meat loaf but much healthier. And you will not miss the meat with this! But it does not contain "no meat" not even an egg!
Love the texture of walnuts, its compliment very well.



Since I didn't had a parchment paper for a loaf pan, to be safe side I used silicon round pan. So it actually looks more like a meat pie with out the crust. My skill of chopping for veggies got wild and I used multiple pots and pan, my kitchen turned out kinda messy. But it was worth making the mess! I've got compliments. My DH is very new to this type of vegetarian eating. But he really loved it and said "I can eat like this, It's a home run Mami!"( *\(^o^)/*Yay! ) I'm really trying my best to introducing my DH the healthy way of eating due to his health concern. So I am very pleased and happy how tonight's dinner turns out. A complete healthy meal.



Mission accomplished! I found this loaf recipe at our ETL team's share recipe thread. Our fellow member Dragonchick had posted it in there while ago. She said she make this often. and I always wanted to try it, but didn't think I can do it. But I'm glad I did it. No wonder this one is her favorite. (^^) It's a keeper and will be one of our staple dinner for sure.

Thanks DC for posting this recipe. I really recommend this recipe to anyone who want to enjoy great tasting healthy meal and/or who want to try out vegetarian style savory meal. Here is the recipe if you are interested. It's from Angela's oh she glow Web site. She does make great recipes! " Thanks Angela!

A setback and My "grace period" has ended.

Monday, August 18, 2014

I was taking a partial spark break. But I actually took a break from my healthy life style as well. Tell the truth, I was struggling with my personal life that has thrown me an expected curveball. And I had to deal with PTSD issue of my past, that had surfaced big time.



It is hard to manage and prepared healthy meals while I was on the go and about most of the time. But more over, I was cave into the "pleasure trap" of sweets and junk foods to just give me some comfort. Almost two month of not get on the scale or not taking care of myself properly. But yesterday finally my grace period has ended. Thank goodness for this SP community. It almost like people here seems to know what's going on with me. And posting all kind of "help me get back on the truck"type blog, article, team thread etc... I was so glad didn't completely cut off from SP. Although, I wasn't actively participate as I used to, but I was aware of team e-mails and friends blogs. I felt bit shame for not staying on truck and deviated from my health journey and again fell into "drugs like"those "pleasure trap".

But with all of your love and support, I summoned all my might and was able to step on the scale and assessed my damage this morning, as well as accepted, posted, on my SP page weight trucker and moved on. I was so glad to able to do this. Instead of feeling a shame
and failure, I decided to be proud that I was again, able to get back up as my own country's old proverb,"fall 7 times, stand up 8".



According to Linda Spangle, author of the book "100 days of weight loss". She said in her blog, "The main thing to remember is that a setback doesn't have to ruin your weight-loss plan. Instead of considering it as a disaster, view a setback as a gift. Let it be a time of learning and renewal, rather than a dent in your belief that you can be successful."

www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo
urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=5760822


I thank her for posting this blog and I'll follow her advice and I'll take my setback as a gift and renewal for better me. She has started "100 days of weight loss" here in SP. Today. She will go through 100 days with us. If interested, here is her blog. I think we can learn a lot from this.

www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo
urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=5762080


Some of my Spark friends knows, but I really need to get back on truck ASAP to help me to help my DH. I really can't afford to be depressed right now and any longer. I need to keep my health and keep eating healthy foods, serving healthy foods so my DH can become healthy too. So here I go, today is my emoticon of getting back on truck. First time in two month I exercised. I was able to walk/run on my treadmill for 3.25 mile. I ate healthy and I feel great! I want to thank all my spark friends love and support and your prayers. Thank you. I'm Back!

I've followed you for quite some time now, almost from the time I first joined SP, using another account - don't even know exactly when that was... I think in 2011? You have come such a long way! You've made such terrific changes and changed so much!
I am sure you will get back on track because living healthy has become a lifestyle for you, also if you didn't do it for a few months.
I'm so sorry you've been dealing with PTSD issues and with health problems for your husband. Indeed if you eat right and exercise you will feel stronger and will be better able to face the difficulties. I know this from my own experiences.

    Mickey there is nothing bad enough that you cannot decide to turn it around. We have all been there. That is why I call this 2 steps forward and 1 step back. The general direction is all that matters. I do understand about the stress of having a very sick husband. Mine seems to finally be getting better but only a very little at a time. He will probably never recover fully but I am just glad he is not in a wheelchair. Since April I have been putting his shoes on and the last 5 times he said to let him struggle with the shoes. So now that is a job I no longer do.
So glad you are back!!!! emoticon

Now you're back on the main road! emoticon The Proverb that you mentioned in your blog, my sister gave me a sterling sliver brace with that engraved around the bracelet. I was always too FAT to wear it, but I tried it on about a month ago, and it FITS!!! I took it back off though and put it back on display on my dresser! You sound so strong and ready to tackle this challenge again, and I'm glad! Thanks again for the heads up about Linda!

I love this quote and is so true for me. Opportunity will be there always. But it is best when you are prepared. This way you will not failed. I've been on plant based whole foods for quite while, for my health and self care since I do not have health insurance. I believe self care= my health insurance. But I've experienced fail my healthy eating plan in the past when I'm not prepared. This quote was great reminder for me. I shall focus more on my health and not let myself with out preparation of my life line.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a wonderful week spark friends. (^O^)/

That is an excellent quote and I will remember it. I try to be prepared for anything and everything, but it doesn't always work out, as our bodies are flawed and we're not MD's to know everything that goes on. But, I have learned to listen to my body, and that gives me great insight.

Yes, young lady, focus more on your health and listen to your body, it makes a world of difference.

Renewed my commitment to maintain my health after clean up.

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Yesterday, I finally was able to organize and cleaned out my closet and dresser in my room. It was long over due. But some reason I was never able to tackle down the task. The reason I finally decided to do it was that, I could no longer find my clothes due to over flow in the closet with too many clothes!! And good things was, that my DH has given me one of his clothe organizer chest. It is one of those see thru one which It has 5 big drawers. So I stated to move my clothes one by one into my newly acquired chest drawers. Before you know it, my room was upside down clothes were every where, on the floor, on the bed... "Phew,.. but I kept organizing little by little. And I found so many clothes that are way too big for me. I wore some of them and they are "huge". emoticon Some are never worn brand name clothes. The clothes that I could not fit, I separated it to the pile of big clothes bins. It was soooo many clothes to sorted out and It took me all day to do it. But I am so glad that I did it. I now has a very organized closet and dresser. I can easily find my clothes. I've decided to donate and not to keep those big clothes, hoping "never" wear again for those clothes. But in the same time I'm kinda sad that I can not fit into some of my fave clothes. And I had to say good-by to them. But I'm also glad that I lost lots of weight and I'm finally able to say, I'm comfortable and happy in my skin. After I finished cleaned up my closet, I accumulated three extra large stretchy garbage bag worth of clothes to donate. Looking at them, "I have renewed my commitment." I've took some selfies for motivation to keep on keeping on with maintenance in my health journey.



My very first exercise pants when I started my weight loss journey.



Surprised to my eye this jeans looks almost two of me can fit into it.
I shall keep going, going, and going. emoticon emoticon

You're AMAZING!!!! Look at you! Not only did you get God's Temple in order, but you've helped so many others, by donating your slightly used clothing! I did the same thing. The only thing I wish I had done, was keep one outfit from my biggest size to keep as a reference. I have my worst weight picture, but I didn't keep any clothes. I just kept giving them away, to the Good Will. In fact, I had so many clothes that I had never even taken out of the package when I ordered them on line! All brand spanking new and off to help somebody else! YEA!!!

You look FANTASTIC!!!! You go, GIRL!!!

    I agree with the letting go of big clothes for sure, and if you are content with your weight, to toss the too small ones too. New or old, they only have negative messages to give us.

I like having clothes that fit me. They act as "guides" to keeping myself on track.

    Congratulations! You look great! I know how you feel about not getting to wear the clothes that are too big. I've decided not to throw away things unless they are worn, so I have this collection of bags of things too big or too small. I actually enjoy trying on the clothes in my closet, though. Closet shopping can be better than real shopping! Take care!

A Improvement of my healthy life style. *\(^o^)/*

Saturday, June 14, 2014



Today, I've got my water dispenser/cooler. I ordered from BB&B exactly a week ago and UPS guy delivered to our home today! I opened up the box immediately and set it up and installed water As soon as I received it. I really like this water dispenser. It looks cool and give me cold and hot water just press of a button. This will definitely help my water intake as I'm drinking lots of water for hydration and purification of my body. Since I do not have to store water in the fridge, I save lots of space where I was using for bottles and jar of water. With the freed up space, I can put more veggies and fruits. This was money well spend investment and improvement of my healthy life style. "Woo Hoo *\(^o^)/*

    Wow, I am jealous! Cold water and hot! You can make tea directly from it, no need to wait for the tea kettle! We had one of those where I used to work, it was fantastic! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    What a great idea Mickey! And I love the idea of being able to get both hot and cold from it! I drink a lot of water but am very picky about where it comes from - this might be a good idea for me!

    Mickey,

I had one of those back in the day and loved it. However, I gave it to someone who needed it, or maybe wanted it more than me. Now her entire family is still enjoying the wonderful water.

Oh, don't buy too many fruits and veggies for the fridge, or they may go bad, before you can eat them all! LOL

Be blessed,

    I love the water here right out of the tap. We have a huge lake with almost no population using it and I do love it. This is one of the reasons I live here. I have found though that I like the water heated just a bit and it is so good. I am glad you found a solution to your water needs Mickey.
