Trying to be Creative

So I have recently started my 21 Day Fix program, yet again.  I’m hoping for some really good results this time around.  My biggest problem  with this meal plan, is that I don’t get creative with my meals. I am going to keep a food diary here for the next 21 days, to show my food.  If anyone ready this has any 21 day fix approved meals, please share.  I would love to see some desserts also.

Healthy Quick Egg Breakfast

Today I have decided to restart my diet.  With the Thanksgiving Holiday finally over and all of my sweets (Cakes and Pies) are almost gone, I have decided to hit the restart button YET AGAIN.  This morning I am starting off with a really healthy breakfast using Mixed Greens, Mushrooms, Onions, and Turkey Sausage, and 2 Eggs.  This is a really wholesome and  healthy breakfast, and really gives a lot of energy to carry you thru the day.  Hope you enjoy this short video.

 

Egg Salad with Avocado

DSCN1934

Being on the 21 Day Fix Program is really amazing, Im learning how to eat healthy with certain foods.  Im a person who really loves to cook, but cooking healthy is not my thing.  When it comes to breakfast I am a really a basic eater.  I love pancakes, but not really able to eat pancakes on this plan, unless they are whole wheat pancakes.  So I spotted this really delicious meal and I have been hooked on it for the past 2 weeks.  Its really healthy and filling.  I pair it with apples or another fruit and im filled up for the rest of the morning.  Its quick and simple.  Read further for the recipe.

  1. 2 hard boiled eggs  (Red Cup)
  2. Half a cup of Avocado  (Blue Cup)

Boil your eggs, once boiled and cracked put in a bowl and mash together with the avocado, add a little sea salt and onion if you like, and your done.  I put this on a whole wheat English muffin and I am ready to eat a hearty filling breakfast.

Egg White Scramble

Well… I have started on yet another Diet Journey.  The past month I have been using the Beachbody fitness program.  The program Im using is the 21 day fix paired with Shaun T’s Insanity Max 30, and love it, until my back took a  turn for the worse 2 weeks ago.  Although I was on the last week, of the 1st month of Max 30, I still was able to keep up my clean eating program with the 21 day fix.  Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to start my exercise routine back, and continue to loose a few more pounds before Christmas, and MAYBE, Just Maybe I will be able to fit into those size 14 jeans by Christmas.  im going to post a few of my favorite new recipe’s that I have come up with, using the 21 day fix diet plan.  There are so many options that you can choose, and I really do love this plan.

This is a simple but hearty breakfast that will leave you really full and I always accompany this with a fruit such as grapes or a small apple.  Here are the steps for this.

What you will need:

  • Spinach and Kale
  • 3/4c Egg White Egg Beaters
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions
  • 2 Slices of Turkey Bacon

Now if you are using the 21 Day Fix , I normally pack my Green Container full with the Spinach and Kale, and add the Mushrooms and Onions on top, that will count as 1 Green.  Sauté that over 1-2tsp of Olive Oil, once that has cooked down, add your Turkey Bacon, and let simmer for about 1-2 mins, on low heat.  Your greens will begin to shrink.  Once all of the veggies and bacon have combined together, add your Egg Whites to the mixture, and start to scramble once the eggs have set.

The way I tally this meal…

  • Egg Whites and Turkey Bacon (1Red)
  • Spinach, Kale, Onions and Mushrooms (1Green)
  • Grapes or small apple (1 Purple)

Picking Up Where I Left Off

Hello, and Welcome Back.

I had to take a few months off from writing and posting.  Had a few things to deal with, but now things are finally getting back to “Business as Usual.”, so I have decided to pick up from where I left off.  In one of my last post, I spoke about a “Diet Fad” that I had been using….HCG1234 Diet.  I refuse to bad mouth this program, it’s a pretty good program, if your into starvation diets, unfortunately that is not my thing.  However it does work, it somehow suppress your appetite, and makes you feel like you’re in your 1st few weeks of  a pregnancy.  I did not really like that feeling, so I stopped taking this.  You have to eat really small meals, and since you’re not eating a lot, it’s not wise to exercise with this program.  I’m a “Zumba Freak” and have to get my exercise in almost everyday, so this was not a diet for me.

Now over the past few months My Mom took a turn for the worse, and was in and out of the hospital for a while, so me and my family turned to fast food most nights.  She passed away in June, and now im getting back to my normal schedule.  I’m able to do my workouts and eat a little more healthier .  Over the past 6 months I have gone from my lowest weight of 215 pounds back up to 236 pounds, which has been a gain of roughly 21 pounds.  Not very happy about that, but we all know things happen.

To rectify this matter, I have put some old programs back into use.  When I first started my weight loss journey in 2012, I used a free program that I found online called www.loseit.com. I have also started using Weight Watchers online as well.  I have started logging everything that I put into my mouth, and this works really well for me.  I have also gotten back on the ball with my Zumba work outs and going to the gym on a regular basis, and even starting to lift a few weights.

Over the next few months I will be bringing to you my diet updates, and hopes that I can finally lose this weight.  I’m back on my journey and hope that this time it will work.

Thanks for checking in with me:)

Chicken Quinoa Stir Fry

Today I created a Healthy and Easy quick-lunch recipe.  I wanted to the taste of one of my favorite Chinese Restaurants, but I know that im not able to eat that on my diet.  I had some left over Quinoa in the fridge and did not want that to go to waste, so I put on my thinking cap and came up with this light recipe.

  • 1-2 Cups of Quinoa
  • 3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • 20 Asparagus Cut
  • 3 tsp Light Soy Sauce
  • 4 Tbsp Stir Fry Sauce
  • Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Garlic
  • 1-2 tsp Lemon Juice

Cook Quinoa as directed on package.

Cut up Chicken thighs into bite size piece.  Pour Olive Oil into a skillet, and add in garlic.  Sautee for 2-3 mins and then add in Chicken.  Brown the chicken pieces untill no longer pink.  Add in cut up asparagus, and Quinoa and cook an additional 5 mins on med.  Once the asparagus are tender, add Soy Sauce and Stir Fry Sauce, and cook for 5 mins. Before taking off the stove add in 2 tsp of lemon juice and stir and Enjoy.
