Garbage In = Garbage Out

For those who are reading this and plan on making a trip to the North East there's a great place for pizza in New Haven, CT  called Pepe's.  In my opinion it's the best pizza on earth.  Outside of Pepe's I go to Wooster Street Pizza (there's one practically in my back yard).  The pizza is a thin crust with a great sauce and just the right amount of cheese. I don't get pizza very often because who can eat just one slice but when I do I usually make it count :-).  Only last night I guess you could say I made up for lost time :-)

I ate pizza last night like it was Thanksgiving and it tasted oh so good.  I normally eat pizza with a salad but I was  tired and lazy and just wanted to sit down and eat without making a salad so I did........6 pieces later!!! :-O  And those were some big slices.  That for me is a personal record - not one to be proud mind you.  I have never eaten that much pizza in my life!

Fast forward to this morning........
My stomach felt heavy.  I did go to the gym and my goal was to run 5miles (my standard these last few weeks).  I did more walking than running in the beginning and I finished my 5 miles in 1 hour 2 minutes (very slow compared to my regular pace - the hardest 5 miles I've ever run).  My energy wasn't there.  All I kept thinking was that darn pizza!!!

Next time the thought comes to mind to 'go to town' on pizza I'll reconsider and stop at 2 slices if I eat any at all!

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 …

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 …

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.
