Health Update

Well, we made it to the halfway point. July is here. This 2020 Weight Loss graphic pretty much explains everything. January I started at 272 lbs and as of June 30th I’m 234 lbs. March and May taught me that diet is so, SO very important. I mean I ‘knew’ this but now I KNOW…

Calories In, Calories Out

Dieting, lifestyle, healthy eating, whatever you want to call it doesn’t have to be hard. Over the last 15 years I’ve tried so many different ‘diets’ or lifestyles with a membership fee, a catchy name, or claims of fast results. All of them left poorer, still fat, and sad. Weight Watchers Keto Plant Based Low…

Accountability

I started something new! I’m not quite ready to share all the details but it’s weight loss related, of course. If you’d like to follow along you can follow me on Instagram: thatslindsaywithana I post what I eat everyday along with the calories and Macros. I plan to write about it more very soon.  Trying…

Am I ‘Mom’ enough?

Today is my 10th Mother’s day as a Mom. You would think by now I would feel like it, but if I’m being honest I still feel like the kid. As a mother, my world is filled with so much anxiety, guilt, and fear. Anxiety over daily life, at least for me. Trying to balance…

Something New?

Yesterday I turned down a job offer. One of the best offers I’ve had recently. It had everything I wanted: Monday through Friday, weekends and Holidays off, set working hours, and the pay was not far off from my current pay.  After working almost 12 years of weekends, holidays, rotating schedules, and missing out on…

School is OUT!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted but I promise it’s for good reason. We are on day 40(ish) of ‘Social Distancing’ and in Iowa we aren’t on ‘Lockdown’. School is out for the rest of the year (19-20), gyms and salons are still closed, and only essentials are working. So many are bummed about…

Heart Hunters

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…
