In no particular order…

1. Fitbit – There is probably no way i would have lost all the weight i have so far if it wasn’t for my Fitbit. The hourly reminders to get up a move have been a great help.

2. Blender – I use my blender pretty much every day for making deliciously healthy smoothies.

3. Scale – Although most mornings i dread getting on the scale, i do need the scale to see how i’m progressing.

4. Weights – I have 5 pounds & 10 pounds weights that i use for working out with.

5. Meal Prep Containers – These are great for keeping portions under control.

Weight Loss Series – Day 1 – My Journey

Hi Guys!

This week i’m doing a weight loss series here on my blog. I’m planning on sharing some of my favorite weight loss foods, tools, gadgets, recipes and more.

But first, i’m starting today with sharing my weight loss journey.

I’ve written previous blog posts about my weight loss. You can read them HERE and HERE.

For those of you that don’t have the time to go back and read those posts i will give a summary.

I started out March 30th, 2017 weighing in at 160 pounds. That was my heaviest non-pregnant weight ever. My goal weight is 135 pounds.

Now i’m going to insert some horribly embarrassing photo of myself…

Yikes, I really HATE that before photo! 

Anyways, I started watching what i ate, exercising 6 times a week, and doing a ton of steps.

On May 6th, 2017 i was weighing in at 144 pounds, and by the middle of  June i was at 138 pounds. That’s a total weight loss of 22 pounds!

As of today, i’m weighing in at 141 pounds.

It’s been an up and down roller-coaster ride losing weight. My biggest struggle is food. Not exactly eating too much food, but not eating the right foods. I’m also a huge fan of sweets.

I’m proud of how far I’ve come, but i still have more work to do.

Are you trying to lose weight?

If you are wanting/struggling to lose weight, i hope this weight loss series this week will help to encourage/motivate you.

If i can do it, you can do it. No more excuses, now’s the time to reach our goals. And just know, i’ll be struggling to do those push-up’s too, you are not alone.

Goals for 2018 {How To Accomplish Them}

I really love new years. I love the idea of starting all over again with a fresh 365 days to make some awesome things happen.

2018 is no different, i was super excited for this year to come, and my list of goals this year is by far the longest list i have ever had.

goals 2018

My goals this year range from really small things (like getting better at doing my hair & my daughter’s hair), to really big things (like buying a house).

But, just having goals isn’t enough, you have to have a plan on how you are going to accomplish those goals.

So, i thought i would share some of my goals with you and how i’m hoping to accomplish them.

Here are some of my goals for 2018:

  • Get better at doing hair – How? Watching YouTube videos, going on Pinterest for ideas, and trying some new idea at least once a week.
  • Reach and maintain my goal weight – How? Working out at least 5 times a week, and changing my diet.
  • Read at least 20 books this year – How? By dedicating at least an hour a day to read.
  • Buy a house – How? By budgeting, paying bills on time, and saving money.
  • Spend less time on my phone – How? Dedicate an hour first thing in the morning to checking emails, answering messages, etc. Then don’t pick up my phone again until after the children are in bed at night.

Like i said, if you set yourself a goal, you need to figure out how you are going to make it work.

Also, another tip i have for you is to be specific with your goals. Don’t just say “i want to read more”, well what is more? one page more, one book more.. Those kind of goals are really hard to measure whether you are doing well with them or not. Instead say things like “i want to read 10 books this year”, or “100 books”. You get the idea, it needs to be a goal you can measure and see if you are achieving it.

What are some goals you have for this year?
