Join Me In A Challenge!

It's been a busy week with losing power. I was able to store most of what I had in my fridge and freezer at a friends house (she had a nearly empty freezer and fridge due to losing power with Irene). She was one of the lucky few who didn't loose power from this recent storm.  Another friend who got power back before us had us over for dinner on Halloween and the kids got to go trick or treating.  Halloween night our power came back on and since then I've been offering up our home for friends and family to sleep, take a shower, have something to eat or a hot cup of coffee etc... It's nice to live in a community where amongst the adversity people get together and help each other out. We all take our turn at both giving and receiving.

Now that things are slowly getting back to normal I'm starting to think about some new goals in addition to completing the ones I already have written down and taped to my dresser mirror.

So who wants in on a challenge? And no it doesn't involve who can eat the most blizzards :-) Because I would win :-)

I'm starting a few days late so please forgive me for not posting this sooner (the first one I came up with and the others I found and I signed up for).

Anyone who tries a challenge is a winner! The objective is to try! Perhaps this will avoid the extra holiday lbs? :-)

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/):
