Over-thinking

Over-thinking

As many of you know, the past several weeks were difficult for me. My energy levels were low and I had my first gain in several months. After a lot of thought, reflection, and prayer, I have realized something. I was thinking waaaaaay too much. Yes, we need to be mindful of what we eat. Yes, we need to make sure we have enough protein, whole grains, fruit, and vegetables. However, I think the problem was that I was thinking…

Let’s go to the movies!

Let’s go to the movies!

Happy Friday everyone! One of my favorite things about going to the movies has always been a big, buttery bucket of popcorn. The more butter, the better. Today, for the first time, my mom and I did not get a bucket of popcorn! We brought our own healthy snacks! It was kind of fun trying to choose what to bring. We chose Chicago Mix popcorn (semi-healthy anyway), apple slices, and Annie’s organic fruit snacks (in lieu of candy). I know…

Pickles!

Pickles!

Hello everyone! Just wanted to share a quick tip for a low-point snack idea. I am really loving pickles right now. A lot of people just eat them on a sandwich, but they are a really good snack. You can choose dill pickles if you want something salty, or bread and butter pickles if you want something sweet/sour. You can eat them alone, with cheese or lunchmeat, or on a salad. Just make sure you are careful of the ingredients…

Everyone’s got one…

Everyone’s got one…

One of my best friends and my worst enemies in this whole process has been the Internet. Everyone’s got an opinion. Eat more carbs! Don’t eat so many carbs! More protein! Less protein! Make sure you get enough fiber! It gets a little overwhelming at times. The whole thing is a process, figuring out what works for you. What makes you feel the best, makes your body run the best, makes you your best you. This is a struggle I…

I will post that recipe below as well! Boboli 100% Whole Wheat Crust 1 package Laughing Cow Light Swiss 13 oz. package of Rosie Organic Free Range Chicken Breast Strips Your choice of veggies (We used zucchini, mushrooms, and onions) 1/3 cup Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese (You can leave…

What to eat…what not to eat…

What to eat…what not to eat…

You may have noticed I’ve been a little MIA for the last couple of weeks. I went on a trip, on which I lost over 3 pounds (more on that in a future blog), came back sick, and then was beyond exhausted. Basically, I got really discouraged and frustrated by the fact that I had no energy. Because I had no energy, I didn’t work out, and because I didn’t work out, I had no energy! All of this lead…

Make it work!

Make it work!

So the other day, I was at a fan event at Disneyland. I had less than an hour to get lunch and get back. I hurried to a bakery that had sandwiches and salads to try and find something low in Weight Watchers points. I got a Chicken Caesar salad because it had a decent sized chicken breast on it, thinking I would get different dressing for it. I asked for Balsamic vinegarette, since that was the best they had….

Quick, yummy, low-points dessert!

Quick, yummy, low-points dessert!

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great week! I just got back from a trip, and I am working on a blog post about sticking to your health and fitness plan while traveling. For now, I wanted to share a dessert idea. I don’t know about you, but I tend to have a sweet tooth. Sometimes it can get pretty overwhelming when it hits, and in the past, I didn’t know how to make the right choices. A…
