Thank you! - 1,000 Page views

I started this blog 18 days ago and I enjoy sharing and getting feedback from you all.
I wanted to say thank you to:
  1. Everyone who posts comments.
  2. People who I bump into that comment on how they appreciate my writing (misspellings and all :).
  3. Countless others who quietly read or follow this blog.  You know who you are! 
I find this blog to be a creative outlet for me when I'm not able to do artwork and it helps me stay focused on my goal for a healthy lifestyle.  I must say it also helps me pass the time during these cold winter months (not that kids keep me bored by any means)!  I look forward to sharing all I can with you in hopes that you to will find some meaning/perspective that applies to your life when it comes to diet, health and well being.  Thank you a million times for being a part of my journey. We can learn allot from each other.  It means more to me than you'll ever know!

  1. Sonya, I really enjoy reading your blog. The thing that inspires me most is your determination and your motivation. I remember how hard it was to get motivated to get to the gym! I have not been to the gym in over 4 years, but I do try to get out and go for a walk on a regular basis. I find the walking fits my needs better than going to the gym, plus it's free. Anyway, I really admire you, and love to follow your blog. Keep it up!

Weight Watchers vs. Jillian Michael's

It's been a little over 3 years (January 2010) since I started my weight loss journey. I reached my goal weight in May of 2011 (135 lbs). Since then it's been a yoyo and my trend had been going up over the last several months. My current weight is 150 lbs (I was 155 but lost 5lbs over the last few weeks). My goal is to lose the weight I put back on (20 lbs) plus an additional 5 lbs for a weight loss of 25 lbs in total. It's so hard keeping the weight off!!

The strategy I'm now doing this time is different. I've decided to follow Jillian Michael's weight loss program instead of continuing on with Weight Watchers. I lost the 80lbs on Weight Watchers and the program served me well. It forced me to look at portion size, calories (with old points system), fiber, carbs, fat and protein (with the new points plus system).  It changed the way I looked at food. Instead of processed foods I focused on eating a variety of whole fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains and low …

Sonya 'Lost It'

Well it's now after Christmas and before New Years as I write this post.  I have been on hiatus for a long time on my blog.  I've been spending some of my time thinking about what I was going to write. I have been through some difficult times starting back in late October.  What I am about to write is very personal.   I feel a little bit foolish for sharing this with everyone as most people don't share their 'business' never mind posting it in a blog.  My hope in this post is to not have people feel sorry for me but that readers get an understanding for my situation and also an understanding of others who are going through something similar.

Taking a deep breath.

I am currently being treated for depression and anxiety and I'm almost finished with an intensive outpatient program at a local hospital (thankfully it's an amazing psychiatric hospital about 40 minutes from my home).

For those who are reading this and have either gone through a depressive episode…

Mini Blizzards

Genius


Mini blizzards are great when you want something sweet on occasion but don't want to kill yourself with tons of calories (there are still more calories in a mini blizzard compared to a cup of carrot sticks however).  This PB cup Mini Blizzard was perfect size and hit the spot.

Here is the download on 'nutrition' for the Mini PB cup Blizzard (http://www.calories-nutrition.buddyslim.com/dairy-queen-blizzard-mini/):
