2020 is Not Cancelled.

So far 2020 has been interesting. If you’re watching the news it’s been the worst year ever, we should just give up, and stay in our houses forever until the government says we can come out… Anyway, I’m not here to be political or argumentative at all, so why am I here? 2020 is Not…

Harvestville Farm Trip July 2020

Last week we finally got out of the house and headed south to Harvestville Farm. Fall is normally the time of year we visit, but Harvestville has something to offer year round! From their website: “Harvestville Farm is part of a 5th generation family farm located in Southeast Iowa. For over 100 years, our family…

Foodie Beauty, Please Stop.

Posting something a little different today. First some explanation. I find a lot of inspiration on YouTube. I follow many health and fitness channels of all different approaches. Some sugar coat it, some cover it with F-bombs, and others are polite yet to the point. On the flip side I follow a few channels who…

How to Identify Your Trigger Foods.

I really hate the word trigger. It’s almost as cringey as the word “offended.” I guess I don’t like words that are thrown around when one is throwing a tantrum… Anyways. Trigger food. They’re real and they are hard to overcome. If you have or have had an unhealthy relationship with food you know all…

My New Addiction: Mini Cucumbers

Where have mini cucumbers been my entire life? Why are mini cucumbers so much better than a regular sized cucumber? The answer to those questions are difficult to articulate but I can tell you one thing mini cucumbers are GREAT. Everyday for at least a solid week now I’ve been having mini cucumbers with a…

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…

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…
