What I ate today!

 After requests of what I've been eating, I thought I would post what I ate on Saturday.  O.K. drum roll please......O.K. it's not that exciting.  Here it is:
Breakfast, well this was really lunch by the time I got around to eating, oops:  oatmeal with an apple, cinnamon, peanut butter, Sun Crystals, Garden of Life Super Seed

For snack I had some leftover chopped raw fruit & veggies from the fridge:  cucumbers, apple slices, baby carrots, and a small handful of pecans.

Dinner:  ribeye from Earth Fare (no antibiotics, no growth hormones, vegetarian fed), steamed broccoli  with organic butter, and Vitaminwater zero. .  I can't always afford to buy "pricey meat" but if I find a good sale I'm all about it.

Just add in lots of h20 & that's it.  I didn't get any formal exercise in, but did manage 7,000 steps according to my pedometer.  I'm going to the gym in the morning for cardio & weights.

I'm trying to concentrate on protein, fruits, veggies, and some grains.  I'm also trying to pay attention to how I feel after eating.  I noticed having a little abdominal pain after the oatmeal, not much though.  Then after dinner, I felt a little quesy.  The same thing happens to me after eating eggs.  I wonder if it's the fat?

Anyway that's it...still trying to experiment to see what works best for me.

Wanna hear an awesome non-scale victory today!?  I was at church today walking to pick up my "little pumpkins" when someone I used to date (when I was skinny & hot) stopped to speak to me.  His eyes actually followed my body down & back up.  You know like your boyfriend would always do when he saw a fine looking girl.  I thought, YES!!!!!!!!  This is a great day!  Of course I told my husband & he said in a sort of kidding like tone, "oh, (wink) you're just getting hot for your next husband."  Which is so not true.  I'm doing this for me!

Hope you have an awesome day!

Be healthy.  Be strong.

Take care,


  1. For best results, do both strength/resistance training and high-intensity core workout either together or in separate workouts. Resistance training builds muscle, burns fat very efficiently, and helps to boost your metabolism for hours after you’ve finished a workout.

  2. HI Cat, That's a great feeling when you get noticed like that.
    On the Belly Fat Cure, the apples and carrots are definite NO-NO's
    The apple has 14 grams of sugar and carrots are real high too.
    Just FYI.
    Also - I know its hard sometimes, but try real hard to eat 3 meals a day. That really helped me.
    Have a good day :-)

  3. Hey Rosalie, thanks for the comment. Right now I'm not really doing the BFC,I'm just concentrating on eating mostly protein, veggies, & fruit, with a little bit of grains (not eating grains for dinner though). Nothing's really off limits for me right now & as long as I'm losing weight I think I'll stick with this. I may do the BFC for a while when I plateau? I'm just trying to eat real food & FAR, FAR less junk. Yes, I do need to eat 3 meals a day, good point. :)

  4. The steak sounds great! When I make my kids dinner I half an apple in half for them and I have a silver of it now too. Sounds like you are doing great and not too far off BFC. Ill go back to oatmeal in the winter too.

  5. Cat, sounds like you are doing a great job and eating healthy. I have been thinking of eating a little more fruit on the BFC since I am missing it every now and then. Plus my doctor thinks I need to eat a little more fruits and veggies.
