It’s Monday!   It really doesn’t feel like it because starting today, I’m working from home — for the holidays!

Meal Plan Monday #1 — Week of 11/26 -12/2

Today makes week #1 of me trying the newest Weight Watchers Plan for 2018 — either Flex or Freestyle depending on where you live.  Technically, I weigh in on Saturdays so my weeks should start then, but it’s easier for me to plan from Sunday to Sunday — so that’s sort of what I’ve sketched out. I have 15 weeks until my competition — and my eating needs to be dialed in and on point until then.  Having a deadline really…

IIFYM – Flexible Dieting

IIFYM – Flexible Dieting

Ever since training for my marathon, I’ve really felt the need to fuel my body for my goals.  In the past, I’ve focused on the scale and on points (weight watchers).  This left me pretty much obsessed with food — when will I eat next?  How much can I eat?  What recipes/foods/products let me eat the most for the fewest points?  Basically, food was all I thought about.  I started gaming the system — tweaking the serving size until my…

Meal Planning & Meal Prep

If you haven’t read about my first trip to the nutritionist, you might want to do that first… before reading on… Waiting… and waiting… We’re currently waiting for the nutritionist to give us our meal plans.  Until then, she’s given us a few “starter” meals and meal formulas to tie us over.  Basically, we need protein/veggies/carbs at each meal — with a goal of 20 grams of protein at Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.  She’s set my macros at 40% carbs,…

Weigh In Wednesday

Weigh In Wednesday

Welcome to Weigh in Wednesday!!  This will mark my fourth week without a specific weight loss plan (no weight watchers, no 21 day fix, no counting calories…). I’m still trying to figure out how to fuel my body without obsessing – which is easier said than done.  In the past, I have always eaten compulsively; sometimes this means super quickly, tons, and almost in a panic – like someone was going to take away my plate any minute and other times…
