Finally tipped it!

After a week of no change I have finally tipped the scale to the other side of 40 lbs. Today's weigh in was 236.8. Down 40.2 lbs!

Not much else to report. Been kickin' it with my home Gym equipment. Finally got the basement open enough to have everything organized. Just added a recumbent bike!
 
If you are still out there in blog land, stay at it. The best thing about tomorrow is the ability to start again. You can only fail if you give up.
 
Keep on Keepin' On!

Cleansing and making a healthier me!

So I have a couple of good friends that have been using Plexus products and have signed up with the company. I'm giving it a whorl too! I've googled reviews and they are good.  They have seen great results. I'm excited to give it a try!

2 Months Out!

January 14th officially marked 2 months since surgery. I am feeling great, and very motivated for changes to come. At 2 months I was officially down 38.2 lbs. I was hoping for 40 but hey I'll take it!

I have been trying to be creative with food. I've had cauliflower shells, cauliflower toast. I have to say, it works. I have to work on crisping it up less egg and more cheese maybe? Ideas please let me know! But turns out my cute yet tiny pan works fora cauliflower toast, topped with over easy egg and a slice of turkey bacon. Weight? 2.8 oz! Perfect size! And I do ave to say, I love my espresso machine! I love the foam! Torani sugar free syrups make YUMMY Drinks!!

I have been working out. Today's work out consisted of cleaning the basement to make room for the recumbent bike that is currently in a box. Hopefully tomorrow I will get that put together. But the before and afters of the basement are awesome!
Anyway, short and sweet! Keep on keepin on!

8 Weeks Post Op!

And feeling pretty good overall. Was out of town for a while, and then there was the holidays.... Did some cooking, some baking, but for the most part I stayed away from all things fattening! YAY ME!

As of today I am down 36 lbs since my pre-op appointment on Oct 19th, 2016. My VSG surgery was Nov 14th, 2016. I am pretty happy with this result so far, I can see changes and I am excited to see what the future holds!
I have been working out. Interval running, weights, kickboxing. Been using a Simply Fit board, kind of loving it, I'll tell ya. Oh and I am also trying the CIZE it up workout (Google it). It's exercise through dance and if you wanna switch it up it's pretty great!
Tried a couple new recipes too! Super easy, Unjury Pancakes, and cauliflower shell taco bowls!
58 Calories in 1 Pancake, 6.6g carbs, 5.9g protein, 1g fat (1 ripe banana, 1 scoop vanilla Unjury protein powder, 1 egg and 1 egg white) This recipe made 9 pancakes but I think I made them rather large. I can only eat one for a meal.

46 Calories in 1 bowl, 3.9g carbs, 6g protein, 1g fat (Shell - 2/3 head Riced Cauliflower, 2egg, 1 cup fat free shredded cheddar, garlic salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning to taste) (Filling - 1oz Ground turkey with taco seasoning, 1/3 red bell pepper, 1 1/3roasted green chilies) This recipe make 10 shells and the filling made 5 bowls. One bowl is 1 serving.
If there is still anyone out there, keep fighting the fight. Be good to yourself! Keep going, even when you wanna quit! The best thing about a new day is the opportunity to start again!

Cheers,
~C
