First and foremost this blog is about my journey to lose 90+pounds! I'm a real woman, with a real life and so it gets thrown in and mixed up with my weight loss stories. My two beautiful daughters frequent the posts in this blog and are my continuing inspiration to become a fit and healthy person! Photography is my passion and you can expect to find it's influence here too!
On a weight loss note - tonight is weigh in! I'm feeling pretty good about it. I'm still not where I want to be with tracking my food but otherwise I've had a pretty awesome week :) I'm getting really close to breaking the two hundred mark and I can't wait!!
So, in my last post I talked about lightening up some of my holiday favorites and now I'm thinking about taking it one step further and making a cookbook. I know it's been done time and time again, but hell why not give it a try? If nobody else wants one at least I'll have all my recipes in one place. :)
So I've been thinking about the upcoming holidays... and all the evil, tempting, sugar and fat loaded food that comes with them. I definitely need to have a game plan in place before they're staring me in the face. I've decided that instead of abstaining from the delicious and oh so fattening foods this holiday season I'm going to try and come up with some substitutions for the classics. My ultimate favorite for Thanksgiving is pumpkin pie, hands down, so that's where I'll be starting. Keep an eye out for the recipe I come up with and the disasters that may ensue!
My weight loss is going great! I'm steadily shedding the pounds. I was really shocked at the scales this week. After Halloween weekend I was just hoping that I wouldn't have gained. I've been doing Zumba 5 times a week and I'm convinced it was my savior this week! Needless to say, if Halloween was rough I'm sure the big food holidays will be filled with even more temptation, I'm so glad I'm thinking ahead!
