Day 2 of not tracking and week 1 of c25k

So, for the next 2-4 weeks I'll be trying to post daily pics of what meals I can for you guys, for anyone who is interested in how to go about eating a mostly whole foods no oil/added sugar diet. 

 I had another successful day I think. For breakfast I had:

Scrambled mexican tofu with spinach, oven baked potato slices and raisins. Yes, I like pepper!

For lunch I had some gluten free pasta with homemade sauce: 

For a snack I did have a protein shake with flax meal and a gf chewy bar thing, low cal but not the best option. I only had two left, I figure when they are gone I just won't buy more. I also had celery with a smidge of peanut butter. I plan to grind my own next time I'm at whole foods but using up the last of what we had. Need to get some avocados too, without oil I'll still need healthy fats for the fat soluble vitamins.

Then for dinner I had an awesome chickpea, walnut, flax burger that I invented, on homemade whole grain gluten free bread with mexican rice and peas. 

Also, I don't think I mentioned but last night I surprised joey with us going on our first c25k run last night. It was a success! Other than sending me to the doc this morning for severe hip pain. (the running aggrivated something that was already going on.) But the doc said eat motrin like candy for the next two weeks and call her back if it hasn't gotten better. (whaaaa?!)

p.s I DESPERATELY need to go grocery shopping. We have very little food in the house. :(


  1. Can you come to my house and cook for me!?? Your food looks so good!!

  2. Thanks! :D I WISH I was in california. ha. our weather is awful. (Been nice lately! But it's rare)

  3. I think you're in the wrong career. You shouldn't be working retail, you should hire yourself out as a personal chef. Or do a meals on the run type business. I'd buy your food!! YUM!!!

  4. renee, joey and I want to open a vegan restaurant one day in the future! We are currently repairing our credit. ;)

How Intuitive eating (did not) work for me

So I have spent roughly the last year and a half or more trying to lose weight by eating intuitively. I'm not really great at it. I have lost 30 lbs in a year and a half, it's moving at such a snails pace that I have finally decided that the only thing that works for me is tracking, and even though in my head I know I won't possibly do it forever, I have to go back to it.

So, Joey and I are tracking again, so far so good. It's only been a few days, but it at least hasn't been a struggle. I figure we will stay where we are calorie wise and after about a month and hopefully some loss (not being too focused on the scale though, it's been my downfall in the past) we can reduce our calories a little bit at a time.

I know this is the right thing to do, but I feel kind of down that I did so poorly with intuitive eating. Then again I probably wouldn't be fat if I were good at that sort of thing. :P Here's to being "On Plan." :D

Also, my job has finall…

I Was a Fat Bride

Our wedding pictures are the first thing you see when you walk into our home. 

Joey and I have been together for over 22 years. We've both gained and lost a lot of weight over the course of our relationship. Then we regained, and re-lost, you know how it goes. We got married on our 19 year anniversary, which is in March.  We had decided to get married just four months prior. So after what our friends teased was a 'brief 19 year courtship", we decided to just go ahead and do it. I know there are a million blogs and articles about losing weight for your wedding. This is not one of them. I had four months to lose weight. I don't really even remember what was going on, but I had NO desire to diet or attempt to lose weight and so I just...didn't. Joey lost a bit of weight so he could wear that fancy vest. I appreciate the effort, he looked handsome in it. :)

We thought we would never get married. We didn't see the point, we kind of still don't, and luckily, be…

Fluvia Lacerda....or, life's short, have fun.

So I just read this post about 'letting it all hang out' in the summer, by Fluvia Lacerda, a Brazilian plus size model. She. Is. Gorgeous.

First, let me say, my 'thinspiration' pics are always plus size models. I have no desire to be skinny. I want to ROCK my curves.

Anyhow, this is what the lovely Fluvia Lacerda looks like:

So she writes this blog post about how you should accept your fat body and don't care about the judgements from other people, etc, etc. I'm thinking to myself, she looks amazing, who is judging her? Then I google her and find a 'celebrity weight gain' site that is talking all kinds of smack on her 'chunky arms' and her 'expanding waistline'. I want to cry. Seriously. If you can look like THAT and still get insulted by these people (who are the equivilant to me, of frat boys yelling "fat bitch" at me from their porch) then I just hate this world. 
I ASPIRE to be as 'fat' and 'chunky' as Fluvia!…
