- drink 8 oz water per hour
- walk 2 laps around the school per hour
- don't eat extra when I work two late nights

Yummy Snack!!!



Found these at Safeway today!!

Food, Food, Food - Week 1


Week One:

For the whole week I ate the same breakfast, lunch and snacks.  Well, yesterday was a snow day so I had bacon instead of plantain chips and salsa.

Dinners:
     Monday -zucchini noodles, herbed chicken, broccoli, buffalo sauce
            I had made the chicken in the crockpot over potatoes (for my boys), but it came out too thyme
            flavored.  Hence the buffalo sauce.
     Tuesday - Spicy taco seasoned chicken over romaine and spinach, with black olives, avocado,
            lime juice and a dash of coconut oil.  (everyone else had chicken tacos)
            Chipotle Taco Seasoning
     Wednesday - Spaghetti sauce (with 97% lean hamburger, sauce from scratch) over zucchini  
            noodles
            Spaghetti Sauce
     Thursday - Steak with broccoli and sweet potato slices.

Today I was out with my mom at lunch time.  We shared a chicken salad with cranberries, which did
      have mayo.  A little dairy, but not much.  I drank water and a cup of decaf vanilla rooibos tea.

Friday Dinner -    Paleo Chicken Tortilla Soup

Because if I'm going to do this, I'm going to do this.

Happy 2017!

Happy 2017!

I am ready to breathe and become me.  How am I not me?  Who is me?  How did I get here?  Where am I going?

The goal of this blog is to keep me accountable to myself.  I am beginning a journey into health, fitness and weight loss.  Today I spent 3 hours preparing healthy foods to be ready for the week.  I will be posting my current health and weight statistics tomorrow.  As I close this first entry I eat my last bowl of caramel greek yogurt with chocolate syrup.  Goodbye sugar, grains and dairy... I will be ok.  Off to take before pics and measurements... yikes
