Finding Time To Breath, Our Imagination Staycation #popsecret

It's no secret that the last 2 months life has become nothing short of insane. We went from a one income household, to a two income, insane shuffling, craziness condo lol. Without the cool condo to live in. Last week I was given an opportunity to take time out of my life and do something that was probably long, long over do!


       Now growing up as a kid popcorn and fort build were kind of how we spent our weekends. We would gather the chairs from all over the house, throw in a couple blankets and watch movies. Now my sister and I were never best friends as kids :p but it was a time that I think my mom must have loved most, when we would come together and laugh.
     Here in West Texas we have had a whirlwind winter already. Personally I think Mother Nature has probably lost her mind! With 5 inches of snow falling we headed outside for snowmen and snow angels! Then I thought what could be a more perfect way to warm up then to pull out the blankets, chairs, tables, and popcorn…

My Plan Day 5- I Guess Chocolate Isn't My Friend :,(

Well that just made my birthday even just a little more sad.lol I lost just 0.2 pounds today which means while not extremely reactive I did have some amount of reaction. My husband insisted we spend the day celebrating my birthday. So I had my normal breakfast and tried to do my best at eating. I'm sure there will be a gain and I will start my day 6 as soon as I get back down to 125.2 pounds :) life is to short to not enjoy, just enjoy it sparingly.

My PLan Day 4-Down 1.5 MORE POUNDS!

I have to say every morning I wake up unsure of what the scale will say. Adding in Chicken yesterday I was really scared this morning because, well, I'm pretty sure if I have to go vegan I would have to have bail money ready lol. Getting on the scale this morning my body told me to chill that it would never do that to me ;) now no 2 ounces isn't a lot and I will have to test and slowly increase those amounts as a test but it was enough o make me happy! Breakfast and lunch were just more of the same old same.lol Nothing exciting to share with you there :p however for lunch I made an amazing garlic, rosemary and chickpea hummus! Now the book says it is VERY important to make your hummus this day and I am glad I did it is SUPER easy.

YUMMY HUMMUS
1/3 pound dried chickpeas 1 cloves garlic Dried Rosemary Enough water to have a little more then double your chickpeas
Just put it all in a pot and boil it till most of the liquid is gone. Throw it in the blender and turn it on. TA…

My Plan Day 3-Down 1 more pound!

Wow I have to say waking up the morning of the last of the cleanse phase and being down 6.4 pounds already I just can't wrap my head around how this has happened. Breakfast, lunch, and snak were all pretty uneventful today.lol I am a creature of habit and this book says that is bad.....but so far I just keep eating the same things and it is a lot of carrots haha. The excitement for the day though is I got CHICKEN BREAST WOOHOO! Now I was shocked how much 2 ounces of chicken really was. I wanted to start on the slow side of the recommendation because well....... I'm not really that big of a person. At 5'7" I am at 126.6 pounds today and what started as a 10 pound weight loss goal I am now completely unsure of my goal. I guess my goal is what my body wants it to be :p. That really seems to be the thing is we gain weight and I guess the numbers in our head all spin.This time my plan isn't about loss though it is about health! Now many of you have heard me talk…

My Plan Day 2- Down Another 1.6 pounds!

All I have to say is wow! I thought surely after yesterdays HUGE weight loss I would be lucky to see the scale budge at all let alone that much. While I do I have to say I try to follow The Plan diet as much as possible I have made a couple modifications due to availability of items and money. The one thing I have noticed is this book could be expensive to follow to a T. I am not taking supplements and couldn't find detox tea but ALWAYS ALWAYS start my morning with two ice cold glasses of water with some lemon in it :)

Breakfast today I did NOT make a smoothie out of my items lol. I chewed and chewed and chewed my flax seed and made a smoothie out of my rice milk and blueberries though :). Why you may ask.....well I hate blueberries lol, and while I completely understand the importance of including them in a diet, like a small child the quicker I can get them down the better! I think the important thing is I got all my items in my stomach ;).

Lunch was soup, it's been f…

My Plan Day 1-Down 3.8 pounds!

So I have been working for some time to lose the weight that keeps growing around my middle. As a woman we all know that is the worst place for it to flock to. I mean go to my boobs or butt and we can work with that, but the middle is unattractive an unhealthy! I decided to give The Plan by Lyn-Genet Recitas a shot. This year I am giving myself the gift of health plain and simple. And after watching reviews, listening to podcasts, and reading books I thought THIS would be the best place to start. So on to day 1 and how it went for me :)

Day 1 Breakfast- I had in my mind I would not be able to eat the granola on The Plan.....Soooo I had a brilliant idea to make a smoothie out of all my breakfast ingredients. Let's just say I am not going to be winning a noble peace prize ANY TIME SOON! It turned into an instant blob of jelly nastiness.lol So breakfast didnt go so well and after adding over a cup of water I chugged down, while gagging, my creation. Now I do have to say it kept me ful…
