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…

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…

Far From Perfect; Closer to Puke

I feel as though my recent posts have been too fluffy and wanted to remind you that I'm far from perfect.  Tonight's class was super tough and I started to feel lightheaded.  It could have been lack of protein today or just the up and down movement but either way I felt discouraged. Here are…

Benefits

I'm into my second week of Zone 360 and my diet.  I have felt so many benefits already and wanted to share if you're looking for some motivation. Clarity - Before I started this there was so much "noise" from myself and outside people.  In an unconscious way I seemed to cling to negativity because…

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…

Day 3: Giving Up

Last night was day 3 of Zone 360 and it was so hard.  If you recall, I texted Melissa to find out what to expect in class because my legs were killing me.  The "surprise" definitely was NOT ice cream sundaes but an evening of legs.  I put forth 100% and got through the brutal work out which…

Day 1: Holy Sh*t!

Yesterday began my journey of healthy eating and a workout routine to change my body.  Before I went I had chicken, cucumbers and toast since I was out of eggs.  I got to class and was pleasantly surprised by the range in ages. Men and women from 20's-50's.  I was pretty shy at first (even…
