Days 26 & 27: Sleep + Emotions = Potential Self-Sabotage

There’s no science to back this up, but as a human guinea pig, with my attemps to be as open and candid for you as possible, it’s important that you understand I’m human.  I’m not super human. Let me explain. In the years and years I have learned about myself and about my own recipe […]

Days 21 to 25: Week 4 Weigh in!

The results are encouraging!  Not on the scale, of course.  If I was simply tracking my progress and evaluating my success based off of the scale then this week wouldn’t be a victory.  But why get on that soap box again, right?! When I evaluate my week I look at a few different things: Did […]

Days 18, 19 and 20: Weigh In!

Saturday morning was my Week Three weigh in.  Lovely, right?  I really didn’t want to step on the scale because I am feeling fantastic and the scale has always been a place confusion for me (and for anyone really). I’m about to preach to the choir as I stare at myself in the mirror, uh-hum….but […]

Day 17 of 60

Habits. I’m not sure why they’re so powerful, but they are. I was dressed and ready to get to the gym yesterday but I was in a meeting that was out of my control and took longer than expected.  Therefore, it was 10:50 a.m. and about 10 minutes away from naptime. I could’ve gone but […]

Days 14, 15 and 16: Let’s Talk Supplements

With all of this low carb/high carb meal transparency for you, I realized there has yet to be a disclosure to what supplements I am taking.  This could get exciting!  😉 But on a side note; yes, yes, yes….. I just realized my days are counted incorrectly and I missed Day 10 (whoops!).  I didn’t […]

Days 13 (Cheat Meal) & 14 of 60

Cheat days are my favorite!  To spare you the details and make up for my extra long post (and really, my limited time in posting blogs), today will be short! Day 13 food (high carb) Meal 1 same on plan Meal 2 whey with water, three rice cakes (chocolate of course!) Meal 3 Chicken breast, […]

Days 11 & 12 of 60 {Weigh In Today!}

It’s my weigh in day today.  Yippee! {Complete sarcasm, ha!} Steady wins.  I’m not sure if it’s “slow” and steady that wins or “fast” and steady that wins.  I’m pretty certain that the word steady is what wins here. This is what I find about the word steady: stead·y [ˈstedē] ADJECTIVE firmly fixed, supported, or balanced; not […]

Days 8 (low) & 9 (high): Oh…The Places You Eat

This title has nothing to do with going to restaurants but everything to do with my hokey connection of Dr. Suess’ books “Oh the Places You’ll Go”….  in connection with where a person-on-the-go eats their meals. For me in this season of motherhood of a toddler, my meals are often spent where I can keep […]

Day 7 Habits

Just because something becomes a habit doesn’t mean there are days when it’s hard to stick to that habit. Coffee. It’s been a part of my life and flow in my day for so long. The only time I abstain from coffee is while pregnant (although I did have a little bit while pregnant) and […]

Days 5 & 6 with My Full Meal Plan Attached

When I write these meals down each day I realized that you don’t know what it is that I’m selecting from.  This is the meal plan (carb cycle) that I followed after 3 months of training with @DeborahGoodman80.  She gave me this plan but I tweaked it a little since I’m no longer nursing. I […]
