The 5lb Meltdown

The Holiday Aftermath....

Well, I'm sad to say that I have to lose the dreaded aftermath of the holidays... I got sick just before Christmas and didn't feel well for several days following. During that time my willpower went down the drain, I decided to enjoy the holiday treats and high calorie meals - big mistake! I have to say again, it absolutely, positively was NOT worth it!!! So now I have to take care of damage control. I'm grateful however that I reminded myself to the misery overeating causes me. I seriously am not as happy when I feel over weight and out of shape. But luckily I was able to jump back up on that wagon and I'm holding on tight, in fact I've handcuffed myself to it... lol. I was too weak to workout for a week but now I'm finally back to feeling strong enough to workout again - yea!!!!

Unfortunately, I gained 6 lbs (most of it water weight) but have already lost 3 of it - thank heavens!!! I'll have the 3 more gone by the end of next week for sure. This is how I'm accomplishing my weight loss goals.

1. I take Go first thing in the morning and again before I go to bed.

2. I'm doing cardio and strength training 6 days a week.

3. I eat a small meal every 3 to 4 hours consisting of protein, fresh veggies & good fats.

3. I'm drinking Liv Sxinney throughout the day and drink at least a gallon of water.

4. I take 2 cRaves a day (1between my main two meals.)

5. I keep a gratitude journal about how grateful I am for my healthy, strong, fit body!

6. I say my personal affirmations daily and constantly give thanks to my Heavenly Father for everything I have been blessed with.

Having an attitude of gratitude is huge in accomplishing your goals. I try to really focus on seeing my body as I want it to be, as though I've already accomplished my goals - especially when I'm working out.

So if you have extra weight to lose, follow these simple steps and you'll be back on track before you know it! =)

"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, mediation, goal setting and affirmations you will …

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
