  1. Moving my blog

    October 8, 2013 by rwilson

    Hey Everyone,
    So I decided to merge my weight loss and food blog so I won’t be blogging here anymore. My new blog is
    There’s barely any contents right now over there since I am just working on merging both blogs and wanted to start from scratch

  2. Getting ready

    September 3, 2013 by rwilson

    I have to say that I found the summer went by way too quickly. I’m not ready for the days spent in the sunshine to come to an end and the rain begin again.

    Tomorrow I get to bring my son to meet his kindergarden teacher and then Friday my daughter gets to meet her preschool teacher. I’m excited and nervous about the whole thing. When your kids are home with you you know you are keeping them safe and sound but placing them in someone else’s care is scary.

    I’m also getting ready to start a job. Its been almost 6 years since I worked outside the house. I think as long as a routine get into place everything will be ok with work and family life. I’m sitting here curled up on the couch in my pj’s things will definitely change once I work lol.

    Besides that not much to report. I’m training 4 days a week and tracking my food. Here’s to hoping the weight starts to fall off :)

  3. Living grain free

    September 1, 2013 by rwilson

    So I have embarked on a paleo lifestyle. I have to say it hasn’t been ey in the least. My stomach is thanking profusely but my brain … It’s hard to reprogram your meal planning. And eating out oh boy some restaurants can be accommodating but others offer nothing at all for this lifestyle. I kind of understand why restaurants use grains and pasta as part of their meals. It’s cheap for them to buy these items and makes sense from a restaurant point of view.

    I haven’t yet mastered the paleo lifestyle yet but I think I am well on my way. To all of you suffering with tummy issues you should definitely try the paleo lifestyle.

  4. Dear Me

    August 21, 2013 by rwilson

    Dear Me,
    Its time that you got your shit together again. Its time that you stop letting food rule you and you be in control.

    I’ve set everything up for tomorrow. There’s fresh food and cooked omelettes waiting for you to eat so no excuse to run out and get whatever your craving. Eat the damn food you cooked it cost money and we don’t have any to waste!

    Tomorrow morning you will wake up and dance your little heart out along with your Zumba game and drink lots of water. NO POP or JUICE water. The stuff that keeps you hydrated and feeling great. No empty calories in water so thats a bonus.

    This isn’t about the number on the scale or the doctors telling you you need to lose weight. This is about you and only you. Sure if I lose weight my children and hubby will benefit from it but this truly has to be about me this time. No excuses no fad diets or gimmicks just real food and real results. It’s time to be the best person I can be starting right now. Not next week or on monday or even tomorrow. It starts now!

  5. So Itchy

    August 21, 2013 by rwilson

    Ok so the kids have had chicken pox’s and I now have shingles. And of course its in my back which drives me nuts cause you can’t scratch your back!

    I have worked hard to build up my strength and cardio with my trainer so I am not letting that work go to waste. Now I can’t go to the gym for the risk of spreading shingles but I have tons of things I can do. I can run up and down my stairs or use one of my dvd’s or xbox’s games. I’m not sure when I’ll get back to the gym but I will keep up my strength and also show a loss next time I see my trainer. I owe it to myself to take care of myself.

    I am struggling with my food addictions. Yes I am calling it an addiction and the reason I call it an addiction is because I feel powerless to control it. I know that eating fast food will make me feel horrible but I can’t shake it. As soon as I eat it I feel sick and like a failure. I am dealing with those emotions one day at a time. I am also trying to plan to create a system that is fail proof so that I don’t fall back on my addictions. I am not saying I will win every craving but I will try. I have a meal plan that I put together with foods that I really like and since I’m pretty much stuck in the house till I heal I should have no excuse not to meal prep.

    Another thing that I want to work on this week is getting a proper sleeping schedule in place. I seem to have a pattern of sleeping really well for x amount of time and then I fall off course and spend a few nights pretty much up completely. I’m not sure why this happens but I’ll be working on figure it out.

  6. Weight loss is hard

    August 12, 2013 by rwilson

    If I hear one more person say weight loss is easy its calories in and calories out I might scream. In a perfect world this is true but in the real world there’s other factors to weight loss. The first step of weight loss is figuring out how you got to be the weight you are. Then theres the emotional waves you get before and during the weight loss process.And lets face it most overweight women not all but most have low self esteem and depression. Again I’m not saying everyone is like that but from my circle of friends this is a fact.

    I’ve been so focused on the darn number on the scale lately I decided to stop looking at the number. Ive obsessed and drove myself crazy about all the number. Points, calories, weight and amount of steps etc.. I’m focusing on being healthy. I’ll eat when I’m hungry and stop when I’m full. I’ll focus on eating healthy foods and working out with my trainer.

    Its late here so I’m off to bed since I got to get up at 430 for my workout. Have a great night everyone!

  7. Getting Organized

    August 10, 2013 by rwilson

    Today I’m printing a bunch of healthy recipes. I’m going to be switching over to the Paleo lifestyle once I empty out my cupboards. I’m excited to get going on this healthy lifestyle. Now my little one is being tested for nut allergies so I will avoid them in recipes for now but I am pretty confident I can make it work either way.

    I have become somewhat addicted to getting recipes online. So I am going to cool it for a while. I have tons of recipes and like everyone else there’s always favorites we use over and over again.

    I didn’t get to the gym today since I had a little one up all night and two littles ones that are sick. I’ll have to cut the grass tomorrow so I’m going to get a workout in.

    Talk to you all tomorrow

  8. Quotes that make you laugh

    August 8, 2013 by rwilson

    Yesterday was one of those early morning training session days. I’m not gonna lie I was trying to find every excuse not to go but decided to go kick some ass. I’m so happy that I did. I’m getting stronger and stronger every time I workout. Yesterday I did a proper plank for the first time since stating my training. I left the gym drenched in sweat but extremely happy.

    After getting home I check my Facebook and someone posted this phrase or quote
    Do one thing everyday that will make you look back and think Fuck I’m awesome. Loved seeing this. This is how my workouts make me feel. Like I’m awesome and can accomplish all my goals.

    I’m working on my eating and have a yummy meal cooking in the crockpot as we speak. I’m off to have a snack and then see my trainer again!

  9. Sick

    August 6, 2013 by rwilson

    I’ve been sick for the last few days so theres not much to report. I pretty much spent most of the time sleeping. i’ll be back tomorrow night to blog!

  10. TGIF

    August 2, 2013 by rwilson

    This week has been all about getting back into a workout routine and eating well and I have loved it. But its also exhausting to go from care free lets go out and walk all day to getting back to the gym.

    I accomplished something today at the gym that I’m proud of. I can officially do a proper plank. This is great cause its showing me that I am making great progress in my strength training.

    I’ve been struggling this week with food a lot. I want to eat everything and anything that is greasy deep fried, covered in chocolate so nothing healthy lol. Today I made chocolate chip oatmeal muffins for the kids and ended up eating 6 of them. Safe to say I won’t be doing that again. After being down in the dumps about my eating I came up with a plan.

    You see as a self described food addict I am constantly over filling my cupboards with food. Now there is ton of healthy stuff sitting in the cupboard just waiting to be eaten and in my fridge an freeze too. So I decided I would take on the challenge of not shopping for food till my cupboards are empty. Here are the rules to my little game. No buying anything except for fruits, veggies and dairy products everything else needs to come from my cupboards or freezer. I’m actually curious to see how long this takes me. Ill be posting my meals on my food blog

    Well thats it for me tonight I’m off to relax!
