Shortcut Salsa

Shortcut Salsa

I use this salsa shortcut especially during the months that I’m waiting for homegrown or farmers market fresh tomatoes. It’s easy and tastes just like I used tomatoes from the garden.

Triple Berry Sauce

Triple Berry Sauce

I developed this recipe quite by accident. I was trying to make a raspberry syrup for a lemon-blueberry bread recipe I had found on Drizzle Me Skinny. I didn’t have enough fresh raspberries so I used a mix of strawberries and frozen blueberries and the accidental result was this deliciously sweet versatile sauce.

It's FriYAY-Weigh!

I'm down .2lbs this week for a total of 6 lbs this month. 

I caught myself grumbling when I stepped off the scale. I had to remind myself that I'm not in a race, and there's no deadline or expiration date for taking better care of myself.

I turned my frown upside down, stopped grumbling and started gratitude-ing! And you know what I learned?

Gratitude is the cure for disappointment!!!

I've come a long way in three years and I am so grateful for the opportunity to share my journey with you! 

What are you grateful for today?

Happy FriYAY-WEIGH! 

The last two weeks have definitely challenged my resolve. But I refused to allow my emotions and/or circumstances control my choices. 

AND accountability has been key in helping me in that area. I know that for some of you tracking is a dirty word, but it's been my secret to success all along.

Since I started holding myself accountable again (ie. tracking) I've lost 5.8 lbs.

I make better choices when I'm accountable.
I'm more consistent when I'm accountable.
I'm more disciplined when I'm accountable.
I'm more mindful when I'm accountable.
I'm more focused when I'm accountable.
I'm more empowered when I'm accountable.

Accountability is POWER!

How do you hold yourself accountable?

Happy Fri-Weigh!!! 

It feels good to be consistent again. I have a clear understanding of what works for me--and what doesn't. But as I always say, knowing isn't doing. 

The lesson I learned in 2022 was to stay in my own lane.

So here's to more of the doing!

Have a great day!

It's fair to say that I spent a good part of 2022 in a funk that spiraled into a complete state of stuck-ness. I felt completely out of alignment.

Stuck-ness was my norm for roughly 30 years, so I know the state all too well--consistently allowing my life circumstances to control my emotions and daily choices tends to put me in a perpetual state of doubt, that leads to paralysis. It's a real growth stunter!!!!

In 2020 I made the decision not to live like that anymore, and I stand by it. I may have lost a little ground last year, but I'm done beating myself up and hiding. 

My plan is simple. You might even call it basic...😆

I'm going back to the basics.

Because they work.

💥Consistency
💥Discipline
💥Self Love
💥Accountability 
💥Patience

It's a new year, and yep, still the same me. But I'm showing up with a renewed commitment in all the areas I got stuck last year (which was kind of all of them) and this time I'm coming armed with enough love and grace to push me through to the finish line.

I'm officially obsessed with my protein hot chocolate creations. They are super satisfying for that evening sweet tooth. AND a total calorie and point bargain!

Fairlife Nutrition Plan protein shakes are my personal favorite, so that's what I use for them but you can use your favorite protein shake. And you can make it any flavor you'd like.

3 WW Points
Approx 100 calories
9g Protein 

3.5 ounces (about 1/3 of a bottle) Salted Caramel Fairlife Protein Shake, heated
1 Packet Nestlé Sugar Free Hot Cocoa Mix
1/2-3/4 C hot water (enough to fill your mug)
3 tbsp whipped topping
Drizzle of sugar free caramel

Warm protein shake in mug, stir or use frother to stir in cocoa mix, fill mug with hot water stir (or froth) well. Top with whipped topping and caramel.. Enjoy!

New year. New you. Yep, diet season has arrived...

Can we PLEASE not fall for that this year? Because the truth is, if you're not loving the old you, you're definitely not ready to love the new you either.

How about we normalize loving ourselves better instead of trying to change all that we think is wrong with us.

It is a new day--and a new year. And I'm living proof that change is possible. But it does not start with a diet. It starts with loving yourself where you are right now.

So instead of vowing to change all that is wrong, commit to loving yourself through every season of the transformation you're seeking--including where you are today.

Happy New Year!

My weight struggles have spanned the past three decades of my life. 

I often find myself wondering what I could have accomplished if I hadn't waited so long. It's a painful thought, and left unchecked, it can turn into a death spiral of negative self-talk.

Instead, in those moments, what if we choose gratitude? If you opened your eyes this morning, you have another shot at it! Every choice you make is a chance to change your trajectory. Now if that's not something to be grateful for every day...I don't know what is!

I think CS Lewis said it best, "you can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending."

So get out there today, and start rewriting your ending!
