Happy Mother's Day

To all you Mom's,Sisters, Aunts, and Grandma's 
Single Dad's and basically everyone has some Mom in their life some how some way 

enjoy the day with your loved ones and have a relaxing day 



okay on to the business of food, weight loss, weight management, diet, exercise and healthy aging ...
phew dat was a mouthful!!! 

so I weighed in this morning at 152.6 down from 157 last Saturday 
BOOM!!! YES!!! 



what is absolutely blowing my mind is this has been done with 
#1 eating Quest bars daily .... okay okay 2 Quest bars daily 

what do you say? you haven't had a Quest bar!!!! have you been living under a rock!!!??? 

#2 I eat 1-2 ounces of raw nut's a day 
#3 NO night cravings... NONE, zip, ziltch!! 

This is totally something I can and plan on continuing. Wheat Belly and Grain Brain if you haven't already read them I would highly recommend. I bought them on the itunes store and listen to them while I am driving 

I have a killer commute daily 


I found a gluten free dressing 


low in calories, pretty good ingredients 


and of course I thin it with balsamic 1 to 1 ratio...
I just always have done this with my salad dressings to help reduce the calories 

KajunDee asked what do I do with all my egg yolks 


can't crack an egg in this house without being surrounded by puppies!!! 
I of course don't give all them to the dogs
but one or two 

so find something that works for you and live it 
it's progress not perfection 


because I have to wake up and treat each day as a Monday, a new start... a new beginning 

because truly it is. 

Happy Mother's day to all

Someone got her mojo back!!


 and since I am ohhh so high tech... this will of course be in no particular order 


okay... okay here we go 
above 2 Quest bars 


up at 4 AM cooking, frozen veggies... chicken is in the oven and hard boiled eggs 


need yee ole probiotic's!! 


2 meals and a small service of apple sauce...
I took this picture cause it looked like a face 
okay in MY mind it looked like a face 
..... derp......


I know apple sauce at 4AM is weird but it had some carbs in it and I didn't want oatmeal
I went to work out this morning and I am trying to stay away from all grains right at the moment 


hey, they may not be fresh
BUT frozen is easy peasy and it keeps me on track 


I had an ounce of raw almonds 
and an ounce of raw cashews today 


yeppers hard boiled eggs 


I love the flavor of this protein but I am not sure I will buy it again
it is a blend a a little rough on the ole tum tum 
.... translated: gives me an upset stomach 
plain ole whey next time


the days food for work


I have been gluten, dairy and mostly grain free for a solid week now 
down 3.5 pounds 
no night cravings 
getting good sleep 
boo ya baby!!! 
Karla is back at it!!!

what I ate .... uber duber boring post


  • coffee with unsweetened almond milk, 2 eggs 
  • Quest bar 
  • chicken and broccoli 
  • blueberries and an ounce of raw pistachios 
  • grapefruit and a Kevita 
  • Quest bar and a Kevita 
  • Brussell sprouts with ICBIT light and light balsamic dressing 
fitbit says I burned 2632 calories (yeah right!!) 

fitness pal says I ate 1506 calories and could still eat another 1100

good example of how app's are not always correct .... but hey if I want another grapefruit or Quest bar that would be okay 

but I most likely won't 

later taters
