Im back

We were out of town this past weekend in AR for my Grandmothers birthday...
I did NOT do well on the trip. The first day (up until dinner) I was really watching my calories like I had planned and had been doing all weekend... and at dinner my aunt ordered pizza and salads and it was all down hill. So, I took the weekend EASY but off of my diet. I did gain some weight back and did NOT feel 100% when I was eating junk but overall it gave me perspective on what NOT to eat and how much better I feel when I eat good!

Since I do NOT just want this post to be about me telling on myself I decided to add an article my friend sent me about carbs...

Day #3

Day 3 on calorie counting and eating healthy!
The good thing about doing this FOOD lifestyle change is that I can really eat anything I want just in small amount and keeping it within my calorie budget!
Yesterday I went to Chick-Fil-A and ate what I would normally... the grilled sandwich with NO butter on the bun and small fry... the small fry only has 280 calories (not too shabby) Of course they are NOT super healthy but I got to eat what I wanted and still ate within my goal!
I have lost 9lbs since I started... thats GRRREAT!

Here are some AWESOME recipes I have blogged about in the past!
They are FAST, Healthy and YUMMMMY!

the Naked Truth

Well over the last few months, I have gained all the weight back that I lost previously with South Beach and all the other diets I attempted... that's where I came to the conclusion taht the word diet in my life comes hand-in-hand with the word FAIL! It sucks, oh yes it sucks big time... but atleast I have realized that not just a diet will work for me! I need a FOOD life style change! BIG TIME!
So, here is my plan... I am on my 2nd day and feel GRRRRR-EAT already!
I have been writing down EVERYTHING I eat, and I mean EVERYTHING that goes in my mouth!
Yesterday I ended the day with 1105 Calories and 45 grams of Fat.... so I think on the Calories side, I did wonderful! On the Fat gram side... even though most of the fats came from GOOD foods and good Fats... thats a pretty HIGH number, so I want to work on that!
I am eating on ly whole grains for carbs, fruits and veggies OFTEN and drinking Naked Juices...
taking vitamins and drinking TONS of water!

This is my NEW plan!
I go in on Feb 10th to get my blood work done...
(read below for those issues)
and as long as my blood is good and I am Happy and feel good,
I will be 100% content!
