It's happened.... It's here...

I'VE LOST 20 POUNDS!!! 



I was going to go for a girl power vibe here, but this was just too good to pass up....

You guys.

YOU. GUYS. 

I'm so pumped. So freaking pumped. I've lost 2.5 lbs since Monday on round 3 of The Fix, which is about what I lost during my entire last round. Granted, I didn't have my whole heart in it that time- I know I didn't. I cheated with my food, I found excuses not to work out... The program's not going to work if I don't work the program, you know? I started to feel sorry for myself, but I'm the one who made the choices to eat junk and not work out. That's unfortunately how this works. 

My dream of eating a bread basket with no calories will never be realized.

Le sigh.

ANYWAY. I've been trying really hard with my food this week, though it's still been tough. The Bearded Wonder was diagnosed with the flu last Thursday, and I developed a nasty cold on Monday. We still ate fix-friendly though! I didn't work out, but I also wasn't eating as many calories as I would if I were working out. So it all balanced out in that regard.

My challenge group also started on Monday, and I have to say that I LOVE it. The folks in the group are funny and honest, and we've gotten great accountability and recipes out of this. I'm doing a giveaway of Autumn Calabrese's FIXATE cookbook on Monday to the most active participant, and at the end of the 3 weeks I'll be doing a $25 Amazon gift card giveaway to whoever loses the highest percentage of body fat. I'm pretty excited. =) 

I love doing this though. I love seeing people support each other, and I love being part of their success story. On a selfish note, I love having even more people around me doing this- there's some serious transparency going on.

Interested in joining us for the next round? Want to just get started on your own in the meantime? You can purchase the 21 day fix set here along with some taaaaaasty Shakeology (cafe latte is my favorite. YUM). Please ask me questions! I've drank the kool-aid Shakeology and love talking about this program! =))) 

OK kids. Everyone have a wonderful weekend, and a wonderful Easter! I'm still not sure why we celebrate Christ's resurrection with a rabbit that brings easter eggs and tons of diabeetus, buuuuut I love Jesus and chocolate so whatevs.

Shame Eating

I found the above image on the interwebs and it always makes me laugh. All.the.time. It's kinda true though, right? IF you've ever had any kind of food addiction then you know the sweet sweet embrace of "one more" handful of kettle corn (ahem), or "one more" piece of bread, or whatever . I was joking with my co-worker that I might as well be shame eating out of the Costco-sized bag of Kettle corn on my counter in the dark, licking the sweet and salty remnants off my fingers. That I can't be trusted alone with it. That I grab a bigger-than-small bowl and PILE it up, lamenting the few rogue pieces that make it to the floor. Another colleague overheard us and said she used to do that with angel food cake. She would sit it on the passenger side and just drive, picking at the fluffy confection. I know a girl who could knock out an entire family size container of Sara Lee pound cake. So friends, those are a few confessions. Using the powers of anonym

Body Image & All That Jazz

This is a post I've been mulling over for a couple of days and thinking of how to approach. It's been prompted because people keep picking up on little nuggets in the blog and asking me questions, so I thought I might as well address everything here in an honest and factual manner. It's about to get real up in here, so grab a snuggie and some ice cream water and let's see what happens. This may be a trigger post, so feel free to skip the  red  text below  to the happier,  more positive green text. =)  I suppose the best place to start is with my eating disorder. Well, "under control" eating disorder is more appropriate. Anyone who's ever had an eating disorder of any variety knows that it never really  goes away. You learn to overcome it 98% of the time, but with the occasional yearn for your former vice or the even more rare slip back into bad habits. I became bulimic when I was about 16, and we had a fast and heavy kind of relationship

Of pizza and fudge [cake]

There comes a time in every girl's life when she has to make a choice. 1 slice or 2? "It's margherita pizza, redhead. How bad can it really be?" I stood in line at a local pizza place eyeing up their margherita pizza with it's circular discs of cheese, smattering of tomatoes, and dried basil leaves. "Yeah, how bad can  it be?" Sometimes in life you order 2 pieces. Sometimes those 2 pieces come out to you falling off of 2 paper plates. Sometimes you look and say "SWEET MERCY I'M ONLY EATING ONE OF THOSE!!". Today was not a day to only eat one of those. Well to be fair, it was, I just didn't bother to acknowledge that until I'd plowed my way through ½ of my second  slice. I can sit here and rationalize that I dabbed up a TON of oil, and it's thin crust, and blah blah blah, but bottom line… There was also chocolate fudge cake .  I know, right? I looked at the cake I'd said I'd split with my wonderful
