Beach Body and Bad Cravings

  There are so many trendy diets that have come and gone.  For instance, I remember a girl in high school who had tried pretty much all of them such as the cabbage diet.  She literally ate cabbage soup for every meal.  Needless to say, I wouldn't sit behind her in class for my own…

I Want To Be Hot

My original goal in my journey was to just get healthy.  While this journey will probably continue for the rest of my life I already feel better but what's the next goal? I want to be hot!  You read it right, I want to be hot!  Being hot has different meanings to everyone.  I think…

There’s No Secret!

I get asked fairly often about what I’ve done to lose weight.  There is no special formula, trick or diet.  It really is working out and changing your eating habits. When I made the decision to get healthy I made a commitment to myself and no one else.  I started working out doing boot camp classes…

Commitment

Yesterday at the end of my Zone 360 class I was approached by one of my coaches to talk about my progress and see if I needed any help.  I'm still down only 10 pounds and should be more around 16 after 2 months.  I said that I've had recent food temptations with family dinners…

It’s Greek To Me!

Keeping on point with your diet is hard enough but what do you do when you have cravings for the bad stuff?  I have cravings all the time like Windmill hot dogs, cheese fries, pasta, bread before the pasta, etc!  I don't want to fail so I've found alternatives to SOME of these cravings that…

I Had A Bad Day Again

So my sickness turned into a 24+ stomach bug which put me behind in classes this week.  I missed my first class tonight but it's an opportunity to rest up and go at it again even stronger. The one thing that has gotten me through my bad days is talking about it.  I talk to…

Food: Take 2

I get a lot of questions about food. What do you eat everyday?  What do you eat when you're out? It took everything in me not to drive to the Windmill and get a hot dog and cheese fries yesterday.  I wanted it so bad and I felt so pathetic.  I have been very focused…

What Do I Do If….

I've asked my Facebook friends to suggest what they want me to write about.  Caitlin wants to know what I do when in social situations such dining out, drinking socially and even home partys.  This is a big opportunity for anyone to f*ck up but if you are mentally committed to your goals it isn't…

Food!!

I love cooking especially during the holidays.  In fact, for Christmas Eve I cooked everything from Ina Garten's recipes.  Ina, better known as the Barefoot Contessa, cooks mostly French for entertaining which means butter, cream and oil.  These were my 3 food groups and I was a huge fan of carbs! Taking on this change…

Week 1 DONE!

Yesterday was a very hard day for me mentally and physically at boot camp in Ocean NJ. I felt defeated by the pain in my body, the exhaustion and the food. I received a lot of feedback, tips, and quotes. I appreciate it all! Someone told me that the diet I am following is like…
