Looking forward to getting to know you all!
Hey vixsin, Diana, who has the daily accountability thread here might be able to recommend a low impact video by Leslie Sansone. She often uses her workout routines.

Hi Flower123! Thank you so much!! I truly believe this forum is what I've been missing. Things go so much more smoothly when I'm holding myself accountable, and changing things up frequently helps quite a bit too.

Breakfast - A Skinny Choco-Chip Banana Muffin - 20 carbs

Snack - A Slimfast Caramel Latte Protein Shake - 0

*Slimfast High Protein shakes are another item that I don't consider carbohydrates from. 1.) The Protein is so high, 2.) The sugar content is so low and 3.) They aid in keeping me full for a long period of time.

Lunch - A flatout flatbread wrap made with 2 small leftover hamburger patties, green leaf lettuce and sugar free ketchup + Leftover Cauliflower tots (these things are seriously the bomb!) - 22

Dinner - Chicken-fried "Rice" made w/ cauliflower, peas and carrots, low sodium soy sauce, sauted garlic, scrambled egg,
chicken and sesame oil
- 6

Okay, you guys. I was thoroughly impressed with this recipe. I think it actually tastes better than the real thing.
I'm not that big of a rice fan, but cauliflower rice is kind of magical.


Snack - The rest of my grande iced coffee w/ sugar free vanilla and extra cream - 3

Carbohydrates - 51
Vitamins/Thyroid Medicine - Yes!
Water intake (in oz.) - 105 oz.

Grocery day tomorrow, so let's do this thing!

Breakfast --
Healthy Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins (Tweaked it a bit)
* Using whole grain Oat flour (instead of whole wheat)
* Sugar-free Maple syrup (instead of full sugar)
* Erythritol (instead of coconut palm sugar)
* and sugar-free chocolate chips
Skinny Egg McMuffins -- These were so awesome, I decided to go ahead and pick up the stuff to make another batch... The hubby asked me to make him a batch too!

Snacks --
None, unless I find something I absolutely just cannot live without! I'll keep an eye out for something special. -- I still have lots of fresh green apples and rice cakes!

Lunch --
Grilled chicken wraps
* Flatout's Light Italian Herb flatbread
* Light dressing
* Grilled chicken breast
* Green Leaf Lettuce
* Fresh cucumber

Dinner --
Greek Turkey Meatball Gyros with Tzatziki and Hummus

* Sabra seems to have some really delicious looking hummus flavors, and it'll be the perfect thing to just grab something store-bought that will cut down cooking time for me in the kitchen and still being healthy, too!

Cilantro-Lime Chicken w/ Spanish Rice (Mock Spanish rice for me)
(Turkey) Sausage, Chicken (or steak if on sale!) and Veggie Kabobs
Salisbury Steak w/ Garlic-Parmesan Cauliflower Cups (Rice cups for Hubby)
Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes w/ Wedge fries (for Hubby)

* I'm thinking I'll throw this in a big salad, or even use lettuce cups? We'll see!

And for an extra healthy night, Grilled chicken salads!

I'm super excited about the new muffins! It's fun finding yummy recipes and nipping/tucking them to fit my needs. I'll be sure to take pictures of these after I finish them... Hmm, maybe that's something I should start doing more of. Food porn, woo!

Have a great day, everyone!

Hey everybody! I think I'm going to start a weekly update on Fridays where I'll post about how everything is going with my diet, my life and just all things in general.

I can't believe I'll be approaching my 7th week in just a few short days! That means my 2-month mark is just around the corner... which also means weigh-in day is RIGHT THERE!
I can't quite tell if I've lost anthing much these last few weeks, but I'm still very excited about this whole process. There's been so many times I've tried to jump back into losing weight and have stopped shortly in because of burn-out. I've said several times already, I've discovered that the thing that keeps me in gear is surrounding myself with things that keep me motivated. Music, fun workouts that I'm changing up frequently, Leslie Sansone's new daily walk app (this has been an incredible help!), and this forum most of all. I don't get many comments in this little thread of mine, but those of you that have complimented me and have rooted me on, you're awesome and I thank you so much for your kind words!
I'm having a lot of fun here, it gives me something really special to complete every day.

So, looking back over the last couple of days, I can see that I need to get my normal wraps back into play. I told myself when I started all of this that I should leave the leftovers off the lunch plate. They tend to be heavier and not very good right before a workout (which is what happens, I ALWAYS get in my 2nd workout of the day right after lunch, and the wrap I make is the perfect fuel for that). Welp, now that I've called myself out on it, I gotta make it right!

* Update - Made both batches of egg mcmuffins and a batch of the chocolate zucchini muffins! I'm feeling pretty accomplished.
Now it's time to work on my weekly round-up!

Today I've decided to pamper myself a bit and make my very own peppermint foot scrub! My feet are kinda dry, and it's something I'm aware of but tend to put off very frequently. Not today! -- I was playing on Pinterest (big surprise, I know... I have an addiction ) and kept coming across all these really delectable-looking sugar scrubs. I thought to myself, I can't eat the stuff, so... why not put it on my feet? Completely logical!

Peppermint Foot Scrub

1 C. Granulated White Sugar
2 TBS. Coconut Oil
1 TBS. Peppermint Extract

I absolutely LOVE peppermint, but I'm sure any extract would work.
Vanilla, Lemon, Cherry (Coconut and pineapple would be a really awesome summertime combo), whatever!
I basically mixed everything together in a bowl and found a cute jar to put it in that had a lid that could be sealed tightly for later use.
Easy peasy!
