Quarantine: Week One.

The Lose It Weight Loss Challenge was supposed to end TODAY. I obviously don’t have to explain why it was ended early, but here we are. On March 16th gyms in Iowa were ordered to close. As of that date I was at my lowest weight of 241.8. With no gym, social distancing, and the…

My Favorite at Home Workouts.

*This is not a TED talk, I’m not that smart*   Well I’m officially tired of talking about, reading about, and thinking about Coronavirus. We’re all feeling a certain way. As of today (Iowa) we our tentatively out of school for 4 weeks, businesses have adjusted their hours of operation, and social distancing is in…

First Goal Achieved! Plateau Broken!

After a 1 lb loss at my last weigh in on 2/28 I knew I needed to change up my diet and gym routine to push through my plateau. Any time that I’ve had weight to lose I plateau around month 3 which is usually the time I start heavy lifting. I drop a large…

Lose It Weight Loss Challenge: 5th Weigh In 2/28/20

Today was weigh in number 5! I knew going into this weigh in I would not see much movement on the scale. I started lifting over the last month and just like I predicted a 1 lbs loss. I’m down to 246 lbs. Not a huge movement. The number that made me feel better was…

How I Hit 300 lbs

Thankfully I haven’t seen the 300’s on the scale for quite a few years but in 2016 I was there. Actually I was over 300, quickly approaching the 330’s… I was a first time mom, but way past the ‘baby weight’ excuse. I had an active 6 year old, a full time job, and two…

My Current Sweet Obsession

I’ve been doing a fantastic job of sticking to healthy eating. I’ve avoided fast food 99% of the time, drinking almost all water, and avoiding junk. Lately though, I’ve had a bit of a sweet tooth. Chocolate doesn’t sound right, and anything super sugary just does not look appealing. It’s amazing how your cravings change…

Lose It Weight Loss Challenge: 4th Weigh In 2/14/20

Happy Valentines Day! It’s also weigh in day!   Two weeks ago I weighed in at 252 lbs, today I weighed in at…248 lbs! And bonus, at home without the gym clothes I was 247 lbs! I also went down another 1% body fat. I didn’t catch the number before they wrote it down, I…

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

I’ve made many versions of enchiladas in my time. This recipe is THE quickest and easiest. Doesn’t hurt that they are under 300 calories per enchilada, 285 to be exact. Here is what you’ll need: Flour Tortillas 10-12, I use the Low Carb Red or Green Enchilada Sauce, Large Can 28 oz, I use Old…
