Weight Loss Journey – Day 44

When I had a craving of one more bag of pop chips, I focused on something else – that craving quickly went away! Weigh In:  164.4 This time last week:  164.2 Warm-ups:  Running in place, jumping jacks, trunk crosses, ice skaters Cooldowns:  Jump rope, punches, mountain climbers, side shuffles Activity:  3 sets each of lateral…

Weight Loss Journey – Day 43

Yesterday was a lazy day for me and I also ate a lot more than I typically do!  It still amazes me how a person can gain 2.5 lbs overnight.  Still not giving up because I am on the right track and today was a new day. Weigh In:  165.1 This time last week:  163.8…

Weight Loss Journey – Day 42

Making small changes eventually makes a huge difference! Weigh In:  162.6 This time last week:  164.4 Activity:  Today was definitely the laziest day I have had in a while, but I still managed to get over 10k steps in. Breakfast:  Two slices of multi-grain bread made into french toast with low fat cream cheese and blueberries…

Cold Pasta Salad with Tomatoes and Onions

You can either use regular store bought italian dressing, or you can make your own, which I did include the recipe below.  Ingredients shown in picture does not have everything – it’s missing the pasta used, tomatoes, onions and other spices for the italian dressing recipe because I ended up combining two different recipes together…

Weight Loss Journey – Day 41

Weigh In:  163.1 This time last week:  165.3 Activity:  Got a lot done around the house, walked outside and on the treadmill.

Weight Loss Journey – Day 39

I’m writing this one a bit early because of some events happening later today and not sure when I’ll be able to make the time to finish this post. As a heads up, I’ll be continuing my weight loss journey blog posts up until the end of this month.  At that time, I’ll be taking…

Weight Loss Journey – Day 38

My average is still less than last week, so I’m doing OK on the weight, even though I do weigh more than yesterday.  In this morning’s workout, Harley Pasternak mentioned to ‘Graze, not Gorge’.  I have not been very good about eating a healthy snack in between meals, so I did that today – one…

Chicken, Shrimp, Kielbasa Alfredo Pasta

I am a huge alfredo fan – however, I am not a fan of the canned sauces.  The more you add to the sauce, the more preparation you need – keep that in mind!  For this recipe, I only did a single batch of sauce and split it amongst the two noodles separately once they…

Weight Loss Journey – Day 37

When I weighed myself this morning, the recording actually went through from yesterday, which I was a pound off.  I was actually 163.8 – not 164.8!  Correction has been made on that post. As a heads up, I’ll be continuing my weight loss journey blog posts up until the end of this month.  At that…

Weight Loss Journey – Day 36

When you eat healthy and exercise, good things definitely start to happen with not just that number on the scale, but also your body!  I had an appointment to get to this morning, so not working out and not eating breakfast at a normal time was definitely something that threw me off a bit, which…

Weight Loss Journey – Day 35

Last night when we got home from the graduation party, I desperately needed to get steps in, so I did.  This morning was a pleasant surprise with the scale, as I thought I would never see the number that I did. Weigh In:  164.4 This time last week:  166.8 Activity:  Walked over 10k steps. Breakfast:  1…
