What I Ate Or Didn't Eat Wednesday

My life has been a little or maybe a lot CAH-razy running back and forth to Warrenton, managing our household, working out and caring for my silly kiddos.  I just have to make time for What I Ate Wednesday; it's just the best! I love making the post, and gathering inspiration from everyone else!




silly kiddos ;)

Super Yummy! breakfast on the run.  I've tried several flavors, but this one is my fave so far!
Normally I pack my lunch, but I didn't today.  Didn't have time to eat until about 3:30, so I stopped by the local Hardees' and grabbed tea and chicken fingers.  Not the healthiest lunch, but at this fast food stop it could've been so much worse!

Super Simple Dinner:  baked chicken and broccoli with butter.

Now for the best part of the day, what I DID NOT eat.  It feels fabulous NOT eating unhealthy food, very empowering indeed.  I stopped in a convenience store to purchase the local paper and look what I found:



I've learned when I don't eat good balanced nutrition I'll crave refined, fluffy, fat laden food!  

I'm working in Warrenton again on Friday and won't get a lunch break, so I'm going to make sure to pack a nutritious lunch.  Lately I'm finding junk food and late night eating creeping back into my life on a regular basis.  I can't continue along this path and expect to achieve my goals, so I've decided for the next 14 days to forgo junk food and late night eating.  

Well that's my crazy life.  No workout today, but I'm meeting with my trainer in the morning.

Tell me:


What unhealthy food or habit is creeping back into your life?  Are you ready to correct it?


O.K. everybody, since I'm starting a No Junk Food And No Late Night Eating Challenge, I thought I'd opened it up to you as well.  It will make it easier and fun to do together.  Just think how clear and radiant your skin will look at that holiday party or how great you'll look in your little black dress!  Who's with me?

Goodnight friends.

I Finally Did It!

This past Saturday I conquered my fear of Body Pump and now I'm in love.  Seriously, I almost started crying in the 1st few minutes of class.  There's something about working out with weights in a group setting and feeling part of something difficult to achieve that pushes me and lights a fire within.  That part of me, the drive to meet a goal, to push further, the place where discipline and emotion reside, is where the emotion originated.  The class was tough!  For a few moments I wondered if I was going to get through it, but I kept the weight at a challenging level and kept going.  What an empowered feeling when the class was completed!
Me after Body Pump




cool.
I tried another Les Mills class today, Sh'Bam.  I thought it was like zumba , but the instructor said no, it's very different.  Anyway it was almost all dance moves and super high energy.  A fun class?  Yes, but did it  ignite the passion within? No, not like Body Pump.  I definitely think I'll do it again.  In fact it would be fun to do Body Pump then Sh'bam.  I'm excited to try other Les Mills classes now, especially RPM and Body Combat.

On the weight loss front I maintained my weight for this Monday's weigh in. I thought that would be the case, especially with less exercise and more eating.  I'm back on track this week and hoping to break into the 150s for next weight in.

Tell me:


Do you go to Les Mills classes?  If so, which one is your favorite?

I love this quote!  Are you following your passion and doing what you love?

Happy Thanksgiving! It's Just One Day.

Today I was feeling a little anxious and stressed, and it occurred to me I haven't exercised since Monday!  I decided to go for a walk/run, then push ups, squats, abs, and stretching.  Immediately I felt relaxed and ready for the rest of the day, a.k.a. Thanksgiving dinner.  I went a little crazy eating dinner, but you know what?  I don't feel guilty at all. None. Zilch. Nada. Really, it's just one day, one meal. Now immediately back to healthy eating.  No snacking tonight and lots of H2O to help with excess restaurant sodium. Then in the morning I'll continue living a healthy lifestyle with nutritious food and healthy exercise. 



On a personal note life has been difficult, but I'm pushing on towards the goal.  God has a way of working things out and I'm trusting Him on this one.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Tell me:


Do you throw all caution to the wind and allow treats on Thanksgiving or do you maintain a strict healthy eating plan even at Thanksgiving?

Take care & have a great Friday!

Take A Risk, Take A Chance, Make A Change

Taking a risk, taking a chance, and making a change is certainly one of the hardest things I've had to do in my life!  Sitting in the darkness and continuing a comfortable existence, whatever that is for you or me, is certainly easier than taking a risk and making a change.  It may even take more courage and strength than you ever imagined possible.  Fear may creep in and hinder your efforts for as long as you allow it to do so; however, fear can and needs to be conquered.  I was encouraged by this verse this weekend:

2 Timothy 1:7  "For God gave us not a spirit or fearfulness; but of power and love and discipline."


God gave us a spirit of POWER and LOVE and DISCIPLINE! So I can do this, conquer my fear and take the first step to change.  For me the first step is always the hardest, going from stuck in a state of fear to an empowered first step to lasting positive change.  My advice is to take the first step, don't worry about the 2nd, 3rd, or 31st step.  Just start moving in the direction of positive change.  Then after conquering the 1st step, feeling strong and empowered, keep moving, go to the second step.

Today I conquered a major fear in my life and I definitely feel like an empowered, strong woman.  I'm reminded of some of the lyrics in the song "Breakaway" by Kelly Clarkson:
"Gotta keep movin' on, movin on
Fly away, breakaway."
  
"I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly
I'll do what it takes til' I touch the sky
And I'll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway."

Next start flexing your discipline muscle to keep the momentum going for positive change.  After all God gave us a spirit of discipline and we need to use it!  Like all muscles, it is a muscle that with use can be strengthened.  I remember not being able to stick with a healthy eating plan for more than a few hours, now I live a healthy lifestyle.  It started with making a change, followed by the discipline to maintain the lifestyle.  

So take a risk, take a chance, and make a change and achieve the life of your dreams.  It's all possible.




Tell me:

What change did you make in your life recently?

Did it make you feel empowered?

Feeling Better and Ready For The Weekend

What a week!  I don't like being sick, but I'm feeling much better now, certainly better than being sick on the weekend don't you think?  Can't wait for the weekend to start!

Yesterday I treated myself to a few spa services, one new one in particular that I LOVE, shellac polish!!! Ever tried it?  It's a combination of gel and polish and stays on for weeks.  When I was a single gal I always had my nails done.  As long as I can afford it it, I think I need to start treating my self  to pretty nails on a regular basis!  I may even use it as a tool for weight loss, "I'm not treating myself to birthday cake, but I will get a rockin' mani."  Not to mention my manicurist is so cute & fun, she makes me feel young again.  

I never realized how much thyroid function affects healthy nails, because after a thyroidectomy my nails had deep ridges.  Medicine can't replace an organ! Even pretty nails, as superficial as that sounds, made my day, making me feel happy and pretty all over.  I think my reasoning with my husband may sound something like this, "see how much happier I am now.  And just think it's really not costing any extra because we're saving money at the grocery store not buying so much junk food."  Think that it'll work?


The color is a dark gray & my skin tone is not red. Didn't photograph well.
Tell me:

Do you find non-food related treats help with weight loss?
Do you have a favorite fall nail polish?

Have a great Friday everyone!  Yea for the weekend.

My Cancer Story, Nutrition Plan and Eating Philosophy

I began this blog with every intention of doing Jorge Cruise's  The Belly Fat Cure precisely as how he outlined it in his book.  That's why I named the blog Cat's Belly Fat Cure, however it changed along the way to my very own unique plan.

Some background about me:

In March of 2008 I had appointments with 3 specialists concerning a nodule in my thyroid. I was sent for an ultrasound, a fine needle biopsy (inconclusive) and one surgery, a partial thyroidectomy, removing half of my thyroid.  During the surgery a frozen biopsy section was completed and sent to pathology, while I waited in the O.R., for the decision from the pathologist.  Is it malignant or not?  Well good news, no malignancy, so I kept the other side of my thyroid, was stitched up, and sent home.  A thyroid gland can function just fine with just half, so no thyroid meds would be needed and I could resume life as usual.  The surgery was on a Saturday, so by Tuesday I was up moving around, had sent my mother home because I was fine and could manage on my own, or so I thought.  My husband wasn't home either when the call came from the surgeon.  Now if a doctor calls your home and first asks if someone is with you or if you're alone, he's not calling to deliver good news. He told me I had papillary thyroid cancer with a follicular tendency. I don't remember if it is the follicular or papillary, but one of those is NOT a good cancer to have.  Sometimes it can be aggressive and the sheer size of mine was not a great sign.

Nothing can prepare a young mother, for such a phone call.  My first thoughts, "what if my children, then 4 and 1 have to grow up without me?"  I don't remember getting overly upset, as I knew God was with me and He'd see things through.

Another surgery was scheduled for a complete thyroidectomy, removal of the thyroid.  Followed by a few weeks of no thyroid function (not fun), a low iodine diet, radioactive iodine treatment, then finally a whole body scan to see if the cancer had metastasized. The hardest part of this process was the unknown, waiting for the body scan. After treatment and the scan, no sign of cancer could be found, but I was told the true test would come a year later.  A year rolled around and no cancer detected again.  It's only by the grace of God I'm alive today!  Really!  My Endocrinologist admitted after treatment, he was pleasantly surprised it had not metastasized!

So what's my point?  I know, you thought I was going to discuss my eating plan....well my health background is part of the puzzle and what has shaped how I eat and live my life today.

Well since thyroid cancer, wellness has been my passion.  Even though I was overweight, I still researched and read everything I could get my hands on about health, nutrition, and cancer prevention.  During this time in my life, my nickname among several friends was "Research Queen".  During this time I tried more diets than I care to admit, some for just weight loss, some for health with the benefit of weight loss.  A pattern was developing though, the diets I was trying for just weight loss were failing miserably, or actually I was failing them.  I realized I needed to think about health, and what I new about health in order to stick with a given eating plan.  In other words, I had to believe in it and follow it with passion.  I couldn't just do a diet for weight loss and deep down not think it was healthy and something I could do the rest of my life.

While my diet could certainly be improved, I've found a balance I can live with that is health promoting AND good for weight loss.  When I tried to do The Belly Fat Cure, certain aspects of the diet conflicted with my health philosophy. Since I believe fruits and vegetables should be the cornerstone of a healthy eating plan, I had a hard time limiting fruits and veggies to keep sugar below 5 grams for the meal and 15 grams in a day.  I could do it in the short term, but since I really didn't believe in it I couldn't sustain it.  I'm not saying I eat high sugar foods, even natural sugar with abandon.  Instead I practice moderation and limit the high sugar fruits and other foods high in sugar as well.  The Belly Fat Cure has definitely made a positive impact in my life and in food decisions I'll make forever.  I always now consider how much sugar grams are in food and make decisions accordingly. The diet also seemed too meat and dairy focused as well.  I do realize I could have done the diet, not consuming dairy and limiting meat and limiting fruit and veggies.  I tried that and for me it became too restrictive.  Other aspects of the diet, I believe are right on, especially consuming no artificial sweeteners.  My body has an almost immediate reaction to those, with a headache and anxiety.  

This is what I've finally determined after 43 years works for me.

What I normally eat:

  • Eating some protein at every meal or snack
  • Bulking up meals and snacks with fruits and/or veggies
  • Breakfast:  carbohydrate heavy with added protein.  For example, this morning I ate gluten free oats, apple, maple almond nut butter, cinnamon, Sun Crystals
  • Lunch:  sometimes carbohydrate heavy or not, with protein.  
  • Snacks:  a balance of protein and carbs, for example, Mary's Gone Crackers with chocolate almond butter, or carrots with hummus, or an apple with a small handful of walnuts, or a gluten free dairy free bar like Larabars or Kind Fruit and Nut bars.  
  • Dinner:  limited or no starch and protein. For example: steak with green beans. If I crave something sweet, sometimes I'll have a spoonful of chocolate almond butter or a cookie, a small amount just enough to satisfy my cravings, or a piece of fruit.
Sometimes I'll eat treats not within this plan.  If that happens I eat them until I'm satisfied and then put the rest away.  Since I allow treats and nothings totally off limits, if I have a treat I don't feel guilty.  And unlike a diet, I'm never "off plan" because this is just how I live and eat now.  

Some pics of what I eat:








I mentioned earlier not eating dairy and gluten.  If I eat something that has a substantial amount of dairy, I will have a reaction within 5 to 10 minutes, increased mucus, asthma, and sometimes stomach cramping.  I'm doing a gluten free trial, although I have the occasional piece of bread. I do notice huge improvements in my physical and mental health when I avoid gluten and dairy.  Do I do this perfectly? nope.

In summary, most carbs are eaten in the beginning to the middle part of the day. Then by dinner I aim for no starch, just protein and veggies.  Then NOTHING to eat after dinner.  I think the combination of no to limited starch at dinner with no snacking at night has had the biggest impact on weight loss.

That's the basics.  I do tweak it a bit when I hit a plateau, but otherwise it's how I eat now.  I don't plan to ever go back to how I lived and ate before.

I hope I answered all of the questions regarding my eating plan, but if I didn't please ask and I'll address them.

Have a happy, healthy Thursday.

Take care,

I'm a Guest Blogger

If you've never checked out Living Lindsay, take a peak, she's fun, educational, and entertaining.  Some of you may know already that follow Cat's Belly Fat Cure on Facebook, I was a guest blogger on her site yesterday, but if you haven't seen it check it out and tell me what you think.

I still can't believe I posted a "fat" picture on the internet for the world to see, even though I like the "now" pic.  It feels strange and a little embarrassing to post something like that, but a good reminder at the same time not to go back to that person.   Thank you for the support and encouragement along the way, without it I'm not sure I would have had such good results.  I have the best blog friends ever!

Speaking of blog friends, I've had lots of questions lately as to my eating plan.  Is it The Belly Fat Cure?   Is it your version of The Belly Fat Cure?  Is it something else entirely? For the next post I'm planning to address all of the questions as well as my current eating philosophy.  Until then....

Have a happy, healthy day fellow wellness warriors!

Take care,

30 Pounds Lost, Before and Now Pics

This as well as the "30 lbs. lost" pic was taken last night. Not the greatest quality with my cell phone, but you get the idea.
I had the hardest time finding a before pic of me because I never wanted my picture taken.  Notice how I have my kids standing in front of me, blocking my body as much as possible. I was amazed to see the difference in my face and body in the before and now pic. Although still a work in progress, I like having my picture made now.

Love this song, "Just The Way You Are", by Bruno Mars, it reminds me of those in my life that have always told me I'm beautiful, no matter what my size was at the time.




I think we're all beautiful and need to believe it, O.K. sometimes I don't, but I'm working on it. We all need someone in our lives telling us we're beautiful.  If they don't, communicate the need to hear it. 

I think part of what motivates us along this health and wellness path is thinking we're beautiful and continuing to make efforts to improve our beauty, whether it's with healthy food, exercise, stress reduction, good sleep, etc.  I know when I hear, "you look beautiful today," it helps me make better choices for the day, because I want to improve myself, even the beauty aspect. 

As I said earlier I'm still a work in progress and have a long way to go, but I'm really enjoying this part of the journey, caring for myself, painting fingernails, wearing makeup more often, caring that my clothing fits properly and is attractive.  I like feeling pretty! It helps keep me on track. 

Tell me:

Does feeling pretty help you stay on plan?




Take care,

What I Ate Wednesday! AND Week 11 Results AND more secrets revealed!


If you like fabulous food, pics, and recipes from other bloggers, check out Peas and Crayons.

Breakfast:
Super yum oatmeal:  gf oats, fuji apple, Justin's maple almond butta, Sun Crystals, Garden of Life Super Seed.  Delicious.
Lunch:

+ PLUS+
= TRUE LOVE

Really.  These two together in a sandwich = happy me.  I usually pair it with an apple or raw carrots.  Chocolate almond butter sandwich - That's whats for lunch!

Dinner:  Glazed sesame pork with green beans
Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper over both sides of 5 center cut pork chops.
Heat 2 tsp. dark sesame oil in large skillet over medium heat.
Add pork and cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned.

Mix:
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. low sodium chicken broth
2 Tbsp. sesame seeds, toasted (I didn't have time to toast them)
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

Add to the pork chops. 

Cover. Reduce heat and simmer an additional 20 minutes or until tender.  Serve pork with sauce.
Voila!  Dinner is served.

These pork chops are really delicious, excellent flavor, salty & sweet.  Love meat with a little bit of sweet.  
Even my 4 year old loved them:

My 8 year old wanted to act like she loved them.  She wasn't interested in trying them.  Just wanted her picture taken ;).

and dessert, gluten free, milk free chocolate chip cookie!

I spoke a little of my weight loss secrets in the last post .  I mentioned developing a nutrition plan that resonates with your belief system, well this is a glimpse into mine.  Sometimes I vary it depending on the goals I need to obtain for the week, but this day is a good snapshot of a typical day, well minus the cookie.  Ideally I add treats about twice a week  I concentrate on eating real food and minimizing junk.  I try to balance carbs for the day by allowing high carb meals in the beginning to middle of the day if I like.  However, by mid-afternoon to evening I minimize starch greatly and eat nothing after dinner, even if I'm hungry.  I believe we don't need heavy carb meals at night and more protein helps to keep me full longer, so I can avoid snacking at night. I firmly believe most of my weight loss is due to how I eat in the evenings, which is so different from how I used to eat. Heavy nighttime snacking consumed me, resulting in an extra 500-1000 calories consumed after dinner 4 to 5 times per week.  I would become stressed, anxious and run to food for comfort.  That's not me anymore and I'm not going back!

The secret to remaining joyful eating this way, when others around you are eating a more stimulating unhealthy diet, is to remain content.  If dining out and your friend is eating a slice of cake the size of your head, don't whine and think why can't I eat that or I'm so miserable, why can they eat cake & I can't.  Instead remain content. Just think of your goals and how skipping this dessert will place you that much closer to them.  Doesn't that feel better than that slice of cake!

Philippians 4:11

11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.

Oh, I almost forgot weigh in numbers for the week!  I lost 3 pounds!  Now I'm only 3 pounds away from reaching my 40 day challenge weight loss goal by my birthday, November 20th!  I'm not going to accept failure.

Take care everyone and make it a healthy day.

    The Secret to Successful Weight Loss, my story

    At least for the last 10 years of my life I've tried to lose weight and spent countless hours reading and researching various ways of eating or "diet" programs.  I'm almost embarrassed to say during this time I've spent a minimum of 10 hours per week reading, researching, searching for the perfect plan for me.  I've done them all too!  Some have been successful, for about a WEEK!  After losing 25 pounds in 10 weeks with my current program, it is clear to me why other approaches have not resulted in lasting change.  A few days ago I had an epiphany as to the secret to successful weight loss & I just have to share!

    Let me start before the beginning, about 14 weeks ago, when my father was in the end stages cancer.  I had the opportunity to spend lots of time with my him in the last months of his life.  As difficult as it was, seeing my father, a very strong, hardworking man succumb to the ravages of cancer, I wouldn't trade the time with him for anything.  He taught me lessons about life, love, sacrifice, will, determination, strength, kindness and so much more.  His legacy will forever live on in the hearts and minds of his loved ones.  At the time I wasn't ready to begin this weight loss journey as God had a different plan for me.  He died on August 5th.  At the funeral not one but 2 different people approached me offering congratulations on my pregnancy and one seemed excited for me expecting twins.  Yes twins!!!  It wasn't bad enough to look pregnant when I was not, but to look like I was expecting twins!  I can say without hesitation this was my wake up call or "aha moment" as Oprah would say.  After the funeral I returned home to live life without Dad.

    Around this same time I read the book, Reshaping It All, Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness, by Candace Cameron Bure.  She's a mother, actress, nationwide speaker about her faith in Christ, and wife to NHL star Valeri Bure. She says, "Embracing a healthier lifestyle begins by moving faith to the forefront, making some wise fundamental choices, and finding your worth in the eyes of God."  This was my starting point or cornerstone.  While I made better choices and grew closer to the Lord, several pieces of my weight loss success puzzle were missing.   I needed motivation to stick with my program, which is basically how Candace eats and exercises in real life, with a few tweaks. God was preparing me again, only giving me a piece of the puzzle at a time, for something amazing.

    Several weeks passed as I floundered sometimes on track making wise choices and exercising frequently, sometimes not.  Then one day right before picking up my daughter at the bus stop, I received a friend request on Facebook from a friend I haven't seen in 15 years.  I hesitated briefly to accept the request because my life was so different when I knew him and we were very close friends.  Sometimes it's better to leave the past in the past, but this time was different as I was about to discover.  He told me he does radio and writes books now, so I checked out his website and radio shows.  I've listened to many of them, but one in particular stands out as extremely helpful for weight loss motivation, Failure To Launch.  After all we all need motivation to lose weight, but it was so much more than that.  It was a formula for success, with no room for failure or not reaching your dreams. I used his formula in conjunction with Candace Cameron Bure's book to formulate my plan for success.  It became another piece of the puzzle God was giving me in the journey to realize my dreams of a healthy body, mind, and spirit. 

    I won't go into all of the details of what I do, but if you'd like to know please email or call me and I'll divulge all of my habits and tricks.  Are you wondering if I'll ever get to the secret of successful weight loss?  Well here is the bird's eye view:
    1. You must be focused and driven and have the will to achieve your goal.
    2. Must have a plan (nutrition, exercise, and spiritual) that resonates with your belief system. 
    3. Discipline to carry out the plan.
    4. Be aware of energy zappers and those that will sabotage your healthy efforts. Not everyone will embrace the new improved you.  Believe me.
    5. Surround yourself with encouragers. You know, those that tell you, "You can do it.  You're beautiful.  You're awesome.  You're a rock star!"
    6. This is the secret, the bomb, what I see consistently in myself and other successful dieters who have lost weight and maintained and continue to be successful.  If what you consider a cheat happens and it most definitely will happen, stop eating when satisfied, don't think you have to eat it all because tomorrow you'll start over again because a perfect tomorrow will never happen!  Let me repeat that, a perfect tomorrow will never happen!  I used to think, oh I'll have this half box of cookies because I'm starting my diet tomorrow, Monday, or whatever the case may be.  I thought when the diet started I would eat perfectly until I reached my goal weight, which never happened, leaving me in a vicious cycle.  So when a cheat happens eat only enough to satisfy, forgive yourself immediately, then immediately climb right back on that healthy eating, exercising, rock star lifestyle.  Any other mindset will end in failure. 
    I think this post could have turned into a book (LOL), so I'll expound with more detail in subsequent posts. I was just so excited to share this with you tonight, so I wanted to at least get started.



    Have a healthy, happy Monday everyone.

    Take care,

      Favorite Things Friday

      This weeks favorite things:
      Oh! So good!  I innitially tried this on Mary's Gone crackers, but would taste delicious on anything! Really, best almond butter creation ever! 
      ...baking cookies for friends and family 

      ...rocked it out at the gym in my Stay at Home Rock Star t-shirt.  Notice the  healthy after workout glow!

      AN AWESOME DEAL!  When I was a single gal I used to think nothing of  buying something and not thinking twice about the price, like for this $300 leather jacket.  Now I shop around, use coupons, and look for bargains...like this SUPER AWESOME FIND!   I don't have the nickname, QUEEN OF RESEARCH for nothing.  So after looking, and looking, and looking for a leather jacket, in retail stores as well as the internet, I found this jacket which retails for $300 on sale for $120!   Yay! The selling point for me, other than the price is the flattering fitted scuba silhouette with princess seams.  I ordered it from Kohls with no shipping charges, BTW.  Yay! Can you tell I'm excited?

      ...pretty nails. although not a huge fan of the color, a little too much sparkle, I do love the name of the color, Miss Independent by Opi. Reminded me of a favorite singer, Kelly Clarkson.  I think for fall, the next color will be something really dark.

      Before I started this weight loss journey I would have never looked for a leather jacket or painted my nails.  I'd think why bother?  I never felt sexy or attractive.  Now, only 25 pounds later, I have more self confidence and love for myself than I ever thought possible at this stage in my life.  With 40 to 50 more pounds to lose I know I'll get there and loving myself is key.

      What were your favorite things this week?  Do your favorite things change as unhealthy habits have diminished and greater health is achieved?  

      Make sure to check back soon, as the next post came to me as a bit of an epiphany.  I believe I've figured out the secret to successful weight loss for me and everyone else as well.  While my research in this area is not  exhaustive, the weight loss successes I've spoken with concur.

      Have a wonderful weekend.
