It's close to the Whole30.. But the stress of being perfect does more harm than good for me. So far so good! Feeling great physically. <BR> <BR> Breakfast: <BR> Egg casserole & squash, coffee & coconut oil <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/2/0/l2015241477.jpg"> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/2/8/l287762006.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Snack: <BR> Mixed nuts & a small apple <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.... Thu, 24 Oct 2013 17:55:54 EST Anxiety http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5521521 This is what is going through my head all the time. These are the thoughts that consume me and leave no room for anything else. It's hard to constantly feel this anger and sadness. I don't know who I am any more. <BR> <BR> What I say to Stepson's Mom in my head: <BR> <BR> You like to say that we don't know what it is like to be you. But that works both ways. <BR> <BR> You don't know what it is like to be a stepmom to K and to open your home and family to someone with open arms. I treat ... Wed, 23 Oct 2013 17:19:45 EST Emotional pitfalls http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5431026 I will have to start over tomorrow. I went out to Applebee's with hubby tonight & went off track. I had a particularly difficult session @ therapy today and I was feeling really weak after. My struggles with the Whole 30 are entirely emotional. I am proud of the way I have been eating overall, even if I can't make it through an entire Whole30 (yet!). <BR> <BR> I am going to stop calling it a whole30 and start calling it a WholeStreak. That is how I want to live right now. I want to string to... Tue, 23 Jul 2013 20:54:47 EST Day 5 - whole30/fitbit http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5429945 Checking in! <BR> <BR> Still doing good on Whole30. A little bit of SWYPO, but still good. I added 100% cocoa to a mashed up banana for dessert. Kind of a cheat, but I was having an emotional moment and it helped. I really wanted an ice cream cone... I'm proud of myself for substituting. <BR> <BR> Also, I went back to yoga for the first time in a long time and it was amazing. Man I missed yoga! Luckily I get to go a bunch more this summer bc of a livingsocial deal. <BR> <BR> Mon, 22 Jul 2013 22:18:03 EST Day 4 - whole30/fitbit http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5428530 Another good day with the fit bit. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/5/l1520673052.jpg"> <BR> <BR> I stayed on my Whole30. Some sweet cravings today, but I was able to manage. And no carb flu at all. <BR> <BR> I found a group of people that play volley ball on Sundays through meet up. I went and played. It had been a looooong time since I played, but I warmed up pretty quickly. <BR> Sun, 21 Jul 2013 18:45:59 EST Day 3 - whole30/fitbit http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5427765 I'm doing well on my new set of goals so far. I stayed Whole30 today, even with being out most of the day. We went out to dinner and I ordered a plain chicken breast on a lettuce bun and a side of steamed broccoli. It was delicious. I had a little bit if the "carb flu" this afternoon, but I ate a taco salad and took a nap and felt much better after. <BR> <BR> I killed it on the fitbit today. I stayed out most if the day and tried to keep moving. I have a little hike planned for tomorrow wit... Sat, 20 Jul 2013 22:57:24 EST Whole 30 day 2 - food pics! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5426717 another good day! TGIF. Fitbit tracker shows over 11,000 steps. It's only 6:30pm. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/7/l1776440080.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Breakfast was eggs, spinach, and bacon (of course) <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/7/0/l707842883.jpg"> <BR> <BR> A little later, I had a Lara Bar. I was really full after the snack, but I seem to do a lot better if I eat my biggest meal in the morning. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/7/...

Not bad for someone who works a desk job! I had about 9,000 when I got home and played the Wii until I hit 10,000. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/8/5/l859504316.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Breakfast was black coffee, a banana, and an omelette with tomato and bacon.

Thu, 18 Jul 2013 19:38:12 EST Goal reevaluation/fit bit/whole 30 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5424766 I decided to reevaluate my goals. I stepped on the scale today and it hasn't really moved... Which makes sense because I have been slacking a little. I think I made it a little too difficult. I am going back to a Whole30 approach because I cannot keep up with tracking calories. I also want to be in a healthy place with food so I eat when I am hungry... And not when I am emotional. I also don't want to be in a place where I'm tracking every calorie. <BR> <BR> I also got a fitbit today. I can...

Definitely learned my lesson from yesterday. <BR> <BR> Eating Healthy: <BR> 1. Eat a paleo-type diet most of the time. Do not obsess about it though. <BR> Breakfast and lunch and snack were paleo. Dinner was pizza - But I made it myself so it was not processed junk. <BR> <BR> Breakfast was a turkey/apple hash and a black coffee with 2tsp Sugar in the Raw <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/3/4/l344498516.jpg"> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.spark...

So.. Here goes <BR> <BR> <BR> My Program: <BR> Eating Healthy: <BR> 1. Eat a paleo-type diet most of the time. Do not obsess about it though. <BR> I did not eat a paleo-type diet today. I ate out every meal. <BR> <BR> I woke up this morning with a craving for Dunkin Donuts. I had a small wrap, hash browns, and a coffee. I do not have a picture because, well, I was not thinking about my hea... Thu, 11 Jul 2013 20:41:10 EST July 10 - goal review with food pics. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5417096 Part of setting successful goals and achieving them is to keep them in a place where you can see them every day and to re-evaluate them each day. Let's see how I did today.. <BR> <BR> Eating Healthy: <BR> 1. Eat a paleo-type diet most of the time. Do not obsess about it though. <BR> - I did eat well today. I had some cream in my coffee and some bbq sauce, but it was not anything that I consider super processed or bad. <BR> <BR> 2. Plan meals for the next day each night. <BR> - This wi... Wed, 10 Jul 2013 19:51:54 EST Goal Setting 101 - Doctor said to lose weight. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5415908 <BR> I have been having some frustrating health problems over the past several months. Skip to the next paragraph if you find female issues to be TMI. :) I stopped taking birth control pills about 8 months ago. I have not had a normal cycle since. I have been having 60-75 day cycles. This makes me a little nervous because my husband and I would like to have a baby sometime in the next few years. Also, it is not normal to have such long cycles. I contacted by gynecologist and they watched my ... Tue, 9 Jul 2013 19:53:29 EST Whole30 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5400435 Well, I blew my Whole 30 after day 19. I had endured party after party this month, but I just could not make it through the wedding on Friday. And for some reason, I proceeded to eat off plan all weekend. <BR> <BR> I jumped back on the horse today. I'm not necessarily shooting for another 30, but I am going to go for a streak and see how far I get. I'm on vacation the end of this week. <BR> <BR> I don't think the restrictiveness of the diet is for me. I was craving things I wouldn't norma... Mon, 24 Jun 2013 16:32:03 EST Cauliflower & zucchini fried http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5387179 Chop half of a zucchini and a bunch of cauliflower in a food processor until rice size. Cut other half of zucchini into bite size pieces. Heat ghee in frying pan. Fry an egg, scramble it up. Add big zucchini pieces and then add "rice". Add coconut aminos, sauté until done. <BR> <BR> I would have added carrots too, but I'm all out. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/4/l1447323168.jpg"> Wed, 12 Jun 2013 17:13:35 EST Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5330771 Lately, I have been intent on eating organic foods. It has made quite the change in my life. Many people have commented that I look healthier. I was buying Ezekiel english muffins- which are really good!, but they were costing too much money. I decided to make my own english muffins for my husband and I. I make a batch of 30 for around $5. I also make an egg casserole each week and every morning hubby and I have egg sandwiches.. and it only takes a few minutes to put them together. <BR> <BR>... Sun, 21 Apr 2013 16:19:50 EST 300 calorie quesadillas!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5223560 I have been on a mission to find delicious, healthy recipies that are low calorie for me and also satisfying for my husband, who has a very active job. <BR> <BR> Today I made these quesadillas and wanted to share. I had one and my husband ate 2 and 1/3. The kiddo ate the remaining two thirds. We had salad as a side. They were good, we gobbled them up. These are also good to satisfy a taco bell craving for those who have them. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/4/l1... Fri, 25 Jan 2013 19:51:53 EST PB2! Healthy alternative to peanut butter. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5221180 If you love peanut butter and haven't heard of PB2, then you must check it out. It is a powder made from peanuts after the oil has been squeezed out of them. You mix the powder with water or milk to create a healthy peanut butter. <BR> <BR> I've tried both water and milk and like it both ways. Today I just put the powder on a cut up apple and shook it up in a Tupperware. It's delicious! A great morning snack.. So I wanted to share. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/...

I think I am ready for a new one. I've been thinking about this for days and I am going to do it.. I am going to set the goal I fear the most.. the one I have the MOST trouble with. Starting Sunday, I am going to make it a goal to stay in my calorie range. There. I said it. and I'm ready. I am going to start with staying in range 5x a week.
