Success!!! I followed the recipe more or less - I substituted 1/6 cup Truvia Baking blend instead of light brown sugar, and blueberries instead of peaches.. but alas made the Emily Bites Muffins.. I calculate about 80 calories each with my sugar replacement. Going to have two for breakfast one of these days - or even out on the golf course.
Victory - I made them and did not snack on them!!!
So every day I discard, giveaway or put in the upstairs closets outfits that are too big. It's an adventure. So after my workout class - I basically am likely in for the day... Anyway I felt like I was putting on a costume. 1) wear clothes that are just so small.... 2) wear eye liner etc.. mean I am at home today literally working at computer. So anyway - with no further ado.. I bring you BadA$$ sue with a message of peace. Oh and today I am in solidarity with @Crayola64we are not eating mindle
So one of my favorite stores is Dress Barn... I grew up in a family that would only shop in Bloomingdales.. so this is quite a controversial move.. but I just love the dresses and clothes that I think thin people wear!!! I have a pair of their Signature Fit shorts on now
So I picked out a ridiculous dress, in a ridiculous size... and wore it to see my client in Houston yesterday. So without further ado....
Break up with Medusa, wake up the Warrior.
Walk away from the self-doubt and self-criticism.
Step into the light and kick some arse!
Head high, shoulders back, deep breath.
Food worries, I'm taking you down.
I've been wrestling with you for too long.
It's time to knock you out and flex some muscles with a warrior cry.
No more, "Oh no? what will I eat at dinner? what if I can't resist the chocolate bowl?"
I hop around like a worrisome bunny a
Thought I would start a blog entry of my favorites and not so favorites.. to help me remember during my weak moments at JC center when I think I should l mix it up. willl edit this and update. Keep in mind what I like - you may hate and vice-versa... Work in Progress
1. JC French Toast

5. JC Loaded Baked Potato for lunch
Do we all have the thin outfit or outfits? I had a dream.. and it was small in the stream of big dreams, but to me it was huge. In OA when I was 25 I went from 246.25 to 145... For my sister's wedding I could pick out any dress I wanted. I wore a glorious purple dress. Well... I have about 5 pounds to reach that 145 goal... and I put the dress on yesterday. Not sure where I am going in it - but I almost have everything in the closet that I put away for the illusive date when I got thin again. So
So On JC I have lost a lot of weight -and am very grateful.. However - I decided to finish strong... or transition to maintenance strong...
Sol today i got weighed in at the gym for my OT Weight Loss challenge - supposedly 6 weeks but officially starts Monday - so it's a bit longer.
So weight was 154.4 I think (with sneakers). We were told to wear a tight outfit. So I sort of liked working out in the outfit... Anyway I am amazed that I am this thin (in clothes) and I know I don't hav
Well then you have to decide. Are you willing to trade what you want most for what you want now? You've worked all this time, you've had great success, it's been easier than before. It's been less tedious than before (logging every bite...ugh)
So today was the first day of state-mandated testing- yes. You got through it, yes. You got some really good news, check. And now you think it should be party time? You want to reward yourself for the stress and celebrate the good news? You can do th
I purchased a spiralizer this week. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007Y9WHQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I was looking for a way to volumize my dinners. Not only is my zucchini beautiful now , but my son is actually eating his veggies! Big plus!
Also, a big thank you to the JC veterans who have suggested grating cauliflower too. I had heard of this, but finally tried it! Goodbye rice, hello cauliflower!
Thought I would share some videos I do to add a bit to my day. I fond doing a you tube video is really fun - and not nearly as hard as treadmill or going to the gym. It is an awesome way to pass time when you want to eat!! Also just a good way to get your system moving as well. You can do at your own pace - or level... I cant do pushups so I modify what they are doing.. I think I have come along way exercise wise - but everyone starts somewhere. Enjoy and let me know your thoughts.
Medusa: This is boring.
Me: Yup, it can be boring.
It's also boring to sit on the sidelines and not dance because I'm worried about my jiggle.
It's boring to not participate because I'm self-conscious.
It's boring to wear the same old bulky clothing that fits rather than all the cute stuff in the closet.
Oh my goodness is it boring to wake up every-single-morning and think about my weight, and my discomfort, yet not do a thing to change these circumstances.
Medusa- So why are you even doing this? You know the cycle will continue, the fall will come and you'll be super-busy and you'll stop taking care of yourself- here will come the Stouffer's Dinners, the extra glasses of wine, and the 12 hour days will yield no time for exercise.
Me- I know. I'll do better this year.
Medusa- You say that every year. And every year you get caught up in the fear and it rules your world.
Me- You know, Medusa- YOU have a lot to do
I found an app for my iphone. It it called Waterlogged. It helps you to remember to drink water throughout the day. I don't know about you, but I actually hate to drink water... I will stand in front of the refrigerator, staring at the water dispenser and walk away! I have determined that the reason is, I hate spending so much time in the bathroom! But, my healthy size 6 friends say that "in time" that will pass, and it gets easier. I don't know if that means I will love the bathroom in the futu
I don't know what happened when I hit my 50's. At the age of 43 I had our youngest child. A son. He is 12 going on 13 going on 40 (an old soul). After I had Brennan I was able to lose weight. It was harder than before, but I exercised and ate well, and the pounds came off. But 50, that's another story!
I'm 55 and I now weigh 182.2 lbs. I was the girl that could eat anything she wanted and not gain weight. The reason I am blogging is to keep a record of my Jenny Craig journey and to keep myse
So most of my life I had short hair. You jumped in the shower and wham it was so fun - afterwards you juts put gel in it - and were ready to go.... Photo below -I was about 30 or so ..not sure - after OA at about 140-150 lbs....
Photo of me now - so can I cut my hair???? The idea is to do one hair cu or the other - anything in between is still alot of work and will drive me crazy on golf course and at gym.... I use ponytail on golf course and at gym with my long hair. It is naturall
Just had to record this where I can remember when I need a comfort meal!! Roasted Brussels Sprouts drizzled with Walden Farms Walnut Maple Syrup ...... Sauted' Mushrooms, green beans, Boiled Sugar Snap Peas (Then pop out of the shell) ......... OH MY GOODNESS! Toasting my new love of VEGGIES!!!
Good morning, I can not beleive how 20 pounds lost can effect me so much.I have lots more energy. Yesterday I was cleaning and organizing the whole house. My fit bit hit an all time high of 23,040..That's crazy.. People are noticing that my daughter and I are losing weight ...it feels so good..
Well I hit the 20 pound weight loss...So proud of myself. My daughter and I started on February 1,2017...It has been great having someone to support me doing the program too. We are walking together,and counting steps with our fitbit..We hope to continue this upward pace...
Haven't blogged here for a few weeks. Obviously. I am at turns frustrated and ok I got this. Yet that is how it goes isn't it?
It may or may not be true but every blinking time I take on losing the weight eating or exercising....something happens.
Yet Lord willing I have determined to not be fazed and do what I can when I can. I am doing 1200 cal and on my own
as I won't be able to take up Jenny food for a week or two more. SIGH. I CAN DO THIS.
So between my own food and my
KISS My journey keeping weight loss simple with JC.
I am so happy I joined JC on March 8, 2017 because nothing could be simpler then this for weight loss!
In the past I tried to do it on my own only to get caught up in over complicating it and giving up.
Not this time!
How simple JC is: pre-made food, consultants to help, and the online community! Just to list a few.
My part: continue keeping my weight loss journey simple!
Week 1: -3.8. /-3.8
I gained this week. It's the first time that has happened since I have been on JC. I have been eating off-plan and giving in to temptations a lot. I have had a lot of other anxieties and things on my mind and food has been my comfort. I thought I could get away with it, but clearly that is not the case. I had gone up 1.4 lbs.
What do you do when this happens? My consultant reminded me of how excited I was on the first day that I came in, how successful I have been until now, and how
