Another GIVEAWAY!!!

Good News!

Thanks to my friends at Diet-to-Go are letting me giveaway another week of meals!

I’m so excited to give someone else the chance to try out these delicious meals! They are perfect for people who want to eat health but not spend a hour over the stove every night.

Turns out I’m not the only one who enjoys these meals, check out this recommendation from the winner of my last giveaway. My friend, Deserea!

I won the last contest for the week’s worth of food from Diet-to-go. It came in this awesome foam cooler filled with dry ice to keep the perishable food fresh. That impressed me because to me this meant that the food was fresh and not some freeze dried, cardboard diet food that I was going to have to try and stomach for a week. When I open the cooler I found 5 days worth of yummy looking meals. That’s right, breakfast lunch and dinner! So easy! You just keep the food in the fridge/ freezer until you’re ready to eat it. My first breakfast was 4 blueberry pancakes with syrup and two turkey sausage links. Yummy! Lunch was a curry chicken sandwich, mandarin oranges, and a granola bar. Mmmm. It just kept going like that! I’m on day three now and am also adding in some exercise, I looking forward to weighing myself at the end of the week to see what difference having no excuse for eating healthier has made! I would definitely recommend giving Diet-to-go a try.

Yay! One, I love that she enjoyed the meals!  And two, I’m excited because my friend is working really hard to lose a few pounds and she is totally rocking it! Way to go, lady!!

Vegetarian for a Week [Diet-to-Go Review]

Why Hello Friends! I’ve seriously missed you, but things have been pretty interesting around here, and I’ve been unable to get to the computer as much as I’d like. Stick with me and I promise to give you a BIG update and I promise to get back to regular blogging!

Lucky for me while things have been a little out of wack, I was blessed with another week of meals from Diet-to-Go! A few months ago I was selected as a Diet-to-Go Ambassador and my partnership with them has been fabulous! I loved my first week of meals, so I was seriously excited to get the chance to review another week of meals.

Just to mix things up some, I picked the Vegetarian Menu. I was part nervous and part excited. I had a brief stint as a vegetarian but I didn’t go super crazy with fake meat or soy things. So I really didn’t know what to expect with my week of meat free meals. But you know, I was very pleased with these meals. A couple of them were a little on the “light side” so I added some fruit and nutrient rich beverages. (I picked the 1600 calorie plan but I’m currently eating around 1800-2000 calories per day.)

As usual, I think the breakfast were some of my favorites! I’m a huge breakfast lover!

Waffles! With added blackberries, a glass of milk and a little dab of peanut butter mixed in with the syrup. I was actually sent waffles for two breakfasts because something else was out of stock. I was one happy girl!

I also enjoyed blueberry pancakes with soy sausage. The sausage was so delicious. I would totally eat it over regular pork sausage. It was tasty.

On the savory side of things, I was sent this Ratatouille Omelet!

IMG_3940

Which was packed with veggies and very filling. It was quite nice to get an extra serving of veggies in the morning.

Lunches were also veggie packed! My favorite was the Mushroom Ravioli but it looked so good, I totally forgot to snap a picture. Another fav was the White Bean Burrito…except again I forgot to take a picture. Its tough when I get so hungry at work, I just eat without thinking!

I did manage to take a picture of the Marinara Veggie Burger with popchips and spinach dip! With an added side of grapes plus red orange juice.

I hate to sound like a broken record here but dinners were equally as fabulous.

Penne Pasta with veggies!

Stuffed Cabbage rolls with more veggies.

And Veggie Pizza with more veggies!

I loved all the veggies! I guess that come with being a Vegetarian!

Hmm….Tuesday.

Hello, hello.

I’m not feeling very inspired today. Nothing Extraordinary or exciting happened.

I’ve been working super hard at work. We have a big project coming up soon, so we are working around the clock to things done. I went in on Saturday for a few hours, and I’ve worked late the last two days. I have no idea what to expect the rest of this week.

All this work has made it a little difficult to stick to the work schedule I created the other day. Good thing “flexibilty” is my middle name. Here’s a look at my revised schedule…

Monday: 3 mile run REST
Tuesday: Bootcamp or other full body workouts 3 mile run (negative splits) & arms
Wednesday: 3 mile run & RIPPED
Thursday: 4 mile run outside
Friday: REST
Saturday: Hiking with my hubby (tenative)
Sunday: TBD Maybe more hiking or maybe a rest day 3 mile run

We are planning to go camping this weekend, but it may or may not happen. If it does we will be hiking all day, if not I will head to the gym. Or perhaps we will do a different hike close to home. We will just have to play it by ear.

This week I am so thankful for Diet-to-Go! I recently became a Diet-to-Go Ambassador and so kindly provided my with a week’s worth of meals. Perfect for my busy schedule this week! I’ll be back later this week with a full review of the program!

Let Me Explain

Hi Friends!

I’ve been a little distant from the blog lately, and I have to apologize. I didn’t mean to take a little hiatus but I had to work though some stuff, so let me explain.

First of all, I finished the Sugar Detox two weeks ago, which was great! Cutting out sugar and refined flours really helped me to drop a few pounds and I reached my lowest weight ever…and finally met the 170s on the scale!

And then the next day and following days I went a sugar rampage! Its embarrassing really. At a BBQ with friends, I scarfed down about 1/4 of Boston crème cake. I was finding myself eating more sugar and sweets than ever; yogurt, granola, chocolate chips, chocolate covered bananas….junk junk junk.

All this was in days of the Diet Bet ending which scared me, I didn’t want to lose my money! I was up a few pounds and knew it was some bloat and left junk in my system so I agreed to do a juice fast with my mom from the Reboot website. This is the program made by the guy, Joe,  from the Sick, Fat, and Nearly Dead documentary. My mom has a similar auto-immune disorder and her doctor suggested she check it out and maybe try it. Long story short, I lasted about two days, made it back to my goal weight for the bet, and then gorged myself on pizza and Arby’s. ARGH!

IMG_3389

So what happened after all this… I’d like to say there was big monumental moment but there isn’t. I just realize I’ve had enough.

— I’m sick of weighing myself every single day, multiple times a day. During the Diet Bet, it seriously got out of hand, I’m talking 5, 6, 7 times per day. So I took the batteries out the scale and shoved it in a closet…where it will stay for an undetermined amount of time. The truth is, I don’t need it. I know when I’m eating right and getting enough exercise. I don’t need a scale to tell me, I know when its enough.

— I’m in a workout rut! I miss the way I felt when I was doing Bob Harper DVDs daily, I was starting to develop muscles and maybe even abs. I love running but I need the weights too. I’m not doing it on my own very well, so I made a big decision and joined a gym. I’ll go in to detail about this a little more later but I’ve already gone twice and I can tell this will help me reach my goals.

— I feel myself falling back into a sedentary lifestyle, when I’m not working out. With my new ad design job I sit at a desk all day long, then I come home and sit on the couch or go to bed early. Well this has got to stop, I’ve gone on a couple walks during my breaks at work but I need to increase this to every day. I also need to walk my pups more!

IMG_3402IMG_3401

Speaking of the pups: I thought this was funny…Kia is a afraid of water and finds the only dry place when it rains and Mopar was out having a blast rolling in the mud!

— As for food…well maybe you noticed a new little badge on the side of the blog…I’m now a Diet To Go Ambassador! Next week they will be sending me a whole week’s worth of meals to try out! I’m super excited to partner with Diets To Go and I’m looking forward to sharing my experience with you guys. Until then I’m trying to eat up all the yummy fresh stuff I have in the fridge so nothing goes bad.

All in all, I’m pretty excited about all these new changes. I’m ready to no longer have a weight problem. I’m ready to be a “regular” sized person. I’m ready to live the kind of life I want to live.

Thanks for reading! Hope you have a fab weekend!
