It’s that time of the month so my -0.3 lbs weight loss seems like a super accomplishment. That’s from Sunday too. I’m sad that this is my first WIW since it’s not much of a WIW. Good food choices: carrots, cucumbers, almonds, peach, delicious granola breakfast. Questionable food choices: tostadas, (and since I’m 300 calories short for the day) cookie/brownie. ...
Goals for July.

Finish scarf for BFF Keep eating healthy Work out AT LEAST every other day, but let’s aim for everyday. Weigh myself more often.

My pictures will tell the story :-/ →
I decided to be brave and post pictures. There is actually like 100 lbs. fluctuation….
Work out fail!
Does anyone else have a hard time working out while it’s that time of the month? I was on the treadmill for like 10 minutes and felt completely light headed. Is it just me?
There are angels. →
I am debating making this a weight loss blog as well. Meaning I would include weight and measurements. But I know know if I’m brave enough to do that. Hmmm. I’m worried people I know will read this and judge me because of my weight. Any thoughts? I would love to hear them!
Granola! It's super delicious!
So I found a granola recipe about a month ago, and I wasn’t crazy about all the ingredients in it. So I’ll give you the original recipe, and then my recipe. And then how to turn it into the most delicious breakfast ever!! I always had a problem of getting way hungry before lunch when I was eating cereal for breakfast. I no longer have that problem. It’s the magic granola. ...
Delicious Fish Tacos!
I made the most delicious fish tacos last night! Aren’t they pretty?! Anyway, for the 2 tacos shown, with the sauce & the cheese they are about 230 calories, but I think I am over estimating. And believe me, after 2 tacos you will be full! So, to make the fish: 2 pounds fish (skinned, boned and cleaned) cut into small strips Note: I used tilapia, I cut the fillet in half,...
Does anyone know of a nutrition site where I can enter the raw ingredients of something I have made to get the nutritional info?
What's Better Than Pancakes on a Saturday Morning?
Mmmm. A pile of pancakes with maple syrup. It’s like childhood all over again. But wait, I was a waif of a child and didn’t have to worry about weight cause I ran around like a crazy person all the time. So now that I am working on losing weight and eating better…how can pancakes still be on the menu? I’ll tell you! First you need to make the ridiculously easy pancake...
Hi, My Name is Sarah and I'm a Calorie Counter...
Not any more! That didn’t work for my before. When I was at Jenny Craig they had to keep INCREASING my calories because I wasn’t losing weight on the 1200 plan they had me on. Go figure. Ok. I understand that eating at McDonalds 3 times a day isn’t good for you. In fact it will actually kill you. But a large part of that is the amount of fat & sodium, not just the calories....
Until recently, I did not like hummus. Now, I think it is one of the most delicious snacks/meals ever! And fortunately for me I have a great hummus recipe! It’s great with carrots or pita chips! This hummus is super easy to make! All you need is a blender! Loaded with 4 cloves of heart-healthy garlic and a generous amount of lemon juice, this hummus sings with bright flavor. Naturally,...
Weakness for popcorn.
Tip: Safflower oil is better for you than Canola oil. Canola oil is still a great oil to use though, don’t get me wrong. And if you make popcorn with Safflower oil it actually tastes like buttered popcorn. I don’t know why. Just awesome and delicious. It’s the MUFAs!
Let me be honest...
In the last…year, lets say. My life has changed pretty dramatically. After failed weight-loss attempts with Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, and The Biggest Loser, I realized that starving myself my senior year really did mess with my body. So I decided I had to make a change. So I cut out all high fructose corn syrup from my diet. And I loss 5 lbs. I was amazed. It’s also amazing what...
