Yeah, I know....I'm not overweight. But I know that I'm not as healthy as I could be. I'm only 5'3" and 10 extra pounds on me makes a BIG difference. Since my hysterectomy in May, I haven't really exercised. There, I said it. I was working out 3-4 days a week before my surgery. I have made a lot of excuses. Like the saying goes, "You make a way or you make an excuse."
I start physical therapy on my knee this week, and I'm actually excited. I'm excited that I'll be in a safe environment to rehab my knee instead of at the gym doing Lord knows what trying to keep up with the 20 year old on the treadmill next to me. Please tell me y'all "compete" with the person next to you on the treadmill or elliptical. Oh, okay maybe that's just me. LOL
Back to my diet.....after all the buzz on Twitter about the "My Fitness Pal" app, I've religiously started using it. If you haven't heard about it, here's the website. It's the easiest way I've found to journal my food. Now I'm thinking about every.single.morsel I put into my
Here's a few things I've been eating. I'm really trying to stay away from food in boxes or packages. In other words, I'm aiming for "whole" fresh foods.
This recipe includes homemade dough. It was my first time making my own pizza dough.
This is by FAR the best bbq chicken pizza I've eaten.
I used organic chicken and organic bbq sauce (recipe calls for you to make your own).
You talk about F-I-N-E! Mmmmm.
I am not a fan of plain Greek yogurt, but I love flavored Chobani.
Mango is my favorite and I add almonds or flax seeds.
Have you tried My Fitness Pal? Look me up! I'm "dishydecorator". Duh.
I'm in need of snack and meal ideas. I'd love to hear your quick "go to" healthy foods.
