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 …

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.

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