~Mamavation~ 11/1

Last week as I was reading other Mamavation posts, I vowed to myself that I would be 100% Positive with this weeks post. I think that mental thinking really helped me through the week! I didn't let any of the negatives get me down, I just kept looking up!

 
This week has been a week filled with good changes! I had said that I was going to really step up on my nutrition, and I did! I have always loved to bake, and just hated to cook! Well, I am really learning to like cooking! Two nights this week I made some really nummmy dinner! Baked halibut with sauteed fresh portabella mushrooms and onions. I was so in love with this! The one night I made tacos for the family with lean ground beef and I made the halibut for myself and put it in a Flat Out wrap just like tacos! I love fish, but the rest of the family isn't too fond of it though. I have also been filling up my plate with tons of veggies! Instead when I get that craving for chocolate I have been smacking on some almonds instead! When I go grocery shopping though I am gonna pick up the some of the coco covered ones!

 
I was also so excited that I found my oat meal that I used to love so much! Kashi GOLEAN Hot Cereal Creamy Truly Vanilla, I loved it when I first found it at Walmart, then I stopped getting it for awhile, mainly because they were always out of it. So, when I started back on this healthy journey I was on the look out for it, but could not find it anywhere! That is until last week I found it at Giant Eagle!!

 
I have been eyeing this one recipe for a few weeks now and Saturday I decided to go for it! Strawberry Pop Tarts with a whole wheat crust! In fact I have found a lot of really healthy kid friendly recipes over at Cheeky Kitchen!

 
Now that I have talked a bunch about food, how about the workouts that I did last week!! For the last few months, now that I think about it, I have really just been doing the same thing week after week! So, I changed it up a bit this week! I tried different cardio workouts and also did a strength training day. I also dusted off my moms old treadmill and when I mean old it's about 20 years old, but it still works! So instead of just sitting at my moms and not doing much of anything I have been jumping on that for awhile!

 
Ok I cannot contain my excitement any more!!!!

I am super excited for the suggestions you have of breakfast and kid friendly healthy site. Way to go on the weight loss! You rocked it! I was wondering how Slim in 6 is, but looks like it is working for you. Very excited to try that out too.

kia said...

Holy moly! Congrats on that mega loss. Great job. Keep up what you are doing because it is obviously working.

gretablau said...

That is so great!! Obviously the change in your workouts combined with watching what you eat and eating more veggies and whole foods is doing it! Also, it seems that your positive attitude HAS TO have something to do wth it.

You rocked it this week!!

Such a great weight loss! WOW for you!
Check the sugar on cereal - I love Kashi, but their Go Lean line is higher on sugar.
One more thing, can I come over to your house for dinner - everything sounds so yummy.
