Busy Week

Today is my day off on my workout schedule and I'm going to enjoy it.  The sun is shining and I'm going to take the boys out for a play date.

It's been one busy week as my 5yr old has this week off from school so I haven't had a ton of time to write.  I find that having my son home can challenge my energy for sure.   At the kids bed time I fell asleep and slept for 11 hours!  I seriously can't remember the last time I slept that long (perhaps when I was a teenager?).  I guess I needed to catch up on some sleep :-)  It was funny I dreamt about the upcoming Easter Sunday feast.  I dreamt about all the desserts that could be there and some I've never seen before but included chocolate.  In my dream while sitting next to my husband at the table I ate a little bit of everything and then felt sick to my stomach afterword (ate too much that wasn't super satisfying to my taste buds).  I must say I'm not craving the brownies I was thinking about last night before bed time ( I will be making them sometime today - they are a 'healthy' black bean brownie and I'm thinking to make and freeze them).

Perhaps I need to fit more indulgence in my life a little more often (in small amounts).  This morning I tried to fit in some indulgence and had an awesome breakfast: 1/2c home made oatmeal with steel cut oats (I cooked up a large batch yesterday so I just needed to heat some in the microwave) and rolled oats; 1TB PB2; 2TB of semisweet chocolate chips = 7ww points plus
1pear = 0 points plus
1c coffee w creamer= 1ww points plus

I am seriously full!!
Cheers!


PS - What's your indulgence? - this doesn't have to include food btw :-)

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…

Healthy Boundaries?

Growing up I always felt like I had to 'do what I was told' or else. A lot of what I learned as a child in terms of relationship bonds and my place in the world is mirrored in my adult relationships. It's taken me many years to figure what my mirror is showing me both good and bad.

I'm guessing many woman (not all) have felt the pressure to conform to others expectations and at the same time not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings or risk being seen as uncooperative. The price woman have paid over the decades has been insurmountable. I think of the mom on Leave It To Beaver, and how woman either bought into or felt that's what they should aspire to. Later on in television was the Mary Tyler Moore Show. The show was about a single woman in her thirties working at a TV station. In the show she was portrayed as a strong independent woman who knew more than those she worked with. Many decades since then more women are in the workplace than ever and more are showing …
