I’ve mentioned before how I’m taking a different approach to weight loss. Since May I have lost a little over 3o pounds and I couldn’t be happier.
I’m starting to get questions now that others are noticing my weight loss and the number 1 question is
* What are you doing? Are you counting calories? Weight Watchers?
The honest truth is this. I have absolutely NO idea how many calories i eat in a day, only what I burn and that’s only because I like to try and “beat” the calorie burn from the last time I did a particular work out. Yesterday when I logged in to My Fitness Pal to track my weigh in and workout, I decided that I was going to track my calories and water for the day and see what I was doing on an average day.
I had a horrible day. All I could think about was food and getting the most food with the lowest amount of calories. After I tracked my breakfast, the first thought I had was “crap, now i have to eat practically nothing for lunch and dinner.” I was obsessed with measuring out everything and fell right back in to my old habits immediately.
It was then that I realized, I have dropped this weight by eating when I’m hungry, stopping when I’m full and not obsessing over how many calories are in a 1/2 cup of strawberries vs 1 cup. If I want a grilled cheese for lunch, I’m going to do it. I know this approach probably won’t work for everyone and if counting calories is working for you, go for it…I’m done with it!!!!
Now that I’ve rambled, let’s get on to the few pictures I took today.

Hello delicious and creamy hot chocolate, I’m so excited you are back in my life!!! After breakfast I did a Turbo Fire workout, on the schedule today was Tone 30. 30 minutes of butt kicking using a resistance band and lower body band. My legs, bootie and arms were quivering by the time it was over and as the day goes on, the soreness gets deeper and deeper (that’s what she said.)
Have a great night!
