Simple Sunday, June 30th

Happy Sunday friends! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!  I ran across something and decided to do a little more research.  Brooke Castillo shares some interesting tips in this podcast about The Urge Jar.  

While I haven't decided if I'm going to try this 100% with jar and all, I think there's some good things suggested in the steps that she shares.  Writing down what you are going to eat 24 hours in advance and not straying from that is a pretty good advice.  I used to do that and I was less likely to stray from what I had planned.  While I was listening to this podcast, it was a great reminder for me of what I need to do for myself.  

While I think I've decided not to focus on getting rid of all of the carbs in my house right now, I am going to try to focus on choosing zoodles or spaghetti squash rather than having spaghetti noodles or fettuccine or cauliflower rice instead of regular rice.  For the coming week, I will focus on getting more fruits and veggies in my diet along with trying to up my water intake.  I think I am going to try some fruit infused water.  I think it will definitely help.  It sounds funny to say this, but I think the old plan where I could check the box made things easier for me.  I felt a sense of accomplishment when they said you need to have this amount of this and this amount of this.  I think that visual was helpful for me.  So added to my list of goals this week, writing down what I'm going to eat the day before.  I think this will help me a lot.  I have lots of fruits and veggies in the fridge.  I see some "snack plates" on my list for the week along with some wraps for lunch.  If I'm putting together my meals at night, then I can track it the night before.  It will make a difference.  I am a woman with a plan.  

While I didn't weigh-in officially this morning, but I did step on my home scale and it showed me down 0.1 so I'm just going to say that it's a maintain.  It is important and necessary for me to have some idea of where I am or I won't know how I've done this week.  I am determined to see a difference by next week in how I feel in my own body.  Here's to a GREAT week ahead!  Hope you have one as well!


  1. Good job on getting that baseline number even though it wasn’t your official weigh in!

    I love your plan for the week! I also find it easier to have my day planned out in advance! That way I know immediately when I start thinking of an extra snack that it will cause me to go over my caloric limit....otherwise I try to rationalize it ‘well I’ll just eat accordingly tonight’.:which never happens....or rather rarely happens!

  2. Looks like you have a good plan in place for the week. Make better choices is a fantastic approach. I don't plan because I will not follow it. Hah!
