I feel like that is the story of my life. If I snooze, the laundry doesn’t get done, the kitchen stays messy, they toys are left all around the house, my piles (and bills) just sit there, I can’t come up with good content for the blog, STUFT Fitness paperwork doesn’t get done, etc.
Having said all that, this morning I “snoozed”.
Three times to be exact. I also just “snoozed” a reminder about a school evaluation that is due today. Oops.
I was productive last night though with setting up MyFitnessPal iPhone application (and watching Bethany Ever after- I would like to be her someday by the way). The application is pretty darn cool. I’m using it more to keep track of different foods that may cause my tummy troubles, etc., rather than to lose weight, but it’s a great tracking tool to write down your meals and exercise.
You can even scan barcodes on there and create recipes.
Since we had Green Chia Cookie Monster Dough Dip after a very late start to our day today, I figured I’d create the recipe in MyFitnessPal.
Check it out. These are the stats for half of the entire recipe.
I also saw this on Twitter this morning.
Two things it brought to my attention:
1. It’s MARCH!! Say what? What just happened?
2. It’s National Nutrition Month.
AWESOME! Time to make some goals.
In honor of National Nutrition Month I’m going to focus on eating real, whole foods. I usually do, but each time I get a little off track and overdo it with packaged carbs, I realize that processed foods reek havoc on my system. Not good.
We all know processed foods are bad for us, but just in case you need another reason to steer clear of them, look what I read in my Go Dairy Free Challenge journal.
The primary cause of obesity. Ugh. Let’s kick those boxes to the curb this month shall we?
Speaking of the Go Dairy Free Challenge, This month I’m focusing on finding the best way of eating for my tummy troubles. It includes some tedious journaling about what I eat and how I feel afterwards (at least it’s nice timing with the whole MyFitnessPal discovery). Hopefully I can nip this thing in the butt. (Is that how you say it?)
I actually don’t think small amounts of dairy are my problem. I think it’s a combination on a bunch of different things, but we’ll go for the no dairy challenge first.
I also stumbled across this article last night on Shape.com about a powerful mind trick to help you lose weight.
Here’s the article: A Powerful Trick to Help You Eat Less
Mainly it talks about how perception is key and if you don’t think something will fill you up, it probably won’t.
It’s a good thing I’m a volume eater. He he.
Okay, enough blabbing Kristin.
Here’s a couple of recent dairy free dinner eats over the past couple of days. Sorry, I can’t help but write a post without sharing some pictures of weird food.
and topped with this new marinara sauce I found at Costco.
It’s delicious and has more fat (4 grams) than other marinara sauces, but oh it’s good.
Inside the “rolls”: Smart Balance light, garlic powder, garlic salt and nutritional yeast in place of parmesan.
Not too shabby. I did the same thing with my favorite bread last night.
Oh and that’s some roasted cauliflower and rotisserie chicken topped with some buffalo wing sauce and Tats BBQ sauce.
It was darn good. I’m so glad I read something like this on Chocolate Covered Katie last week. I don’t know why I never thought of it before.
You can seriously do so much with roasted cauliflower.
Okay I’m off to play with my BFs.
Besides shunning dairy and processed foods this month, I have a non-nutritional goal of getting my taxes done to see just how much money I didn’t make this past year. Ha ha.
Are you making any goals for National Nutrition Month?
