Day 7. Victory for the first time ever.

I am proud to announce that for the first time in my life I don't feel like I started a "diet" I feel like i am bettering my life and big change is going to happen because of it! I can't believe it's literally been a week! It went by so fast....why didn't I do this before?? I never once felt like cheating and eating fast food! I thought my small changes made a HUGE difference....I can't wait to fine tune things over the next weeks and months to come! I need to work on being more organized...something I have always had a hard time with. I feel chaotic and anxious when I don't plan things out....and it just trickles down to everything I do from a day to day basis.

Eating went well that I feel it's possible to eat well with out cooking for hours...My goal for next week is to start WRITING down the calories....

menu today

am -protein bar
lunch 1 chicken breast, light Cesar salad pack
snack peanut butter and apple slices
Dinner 2 mini fajitas with cilantro, onions, tomato's , steak and fresh lime
dessert 1 skinny cow

however did not make to the gym today...Goal for next seven days is to work out 4 days or more.

I have decided that I need to do measurements and weigh in keep myself on track and I will be posting on tomorrow's post!!! YAYYY!

Good night!

PS. I have been reading a lot about the benefits of flax seed. Does anyone eat it daily? If so , have you seen benefits from it? Thanks!!!


  1. Paul eats flax seed every day and doesn't seem to have a weight problem--he swears by it. I don't eat it--I have a problem--make your own deduction

  2. we put flax in a lot of things in our house, but I can't say I have a regular ammount I eat daily. I should, my problem is in forgetting to put it in my food. But from what I've heard, it really is good for you. You can get a big jar of it from costco that is pre-ground. It's probaby the cheapest/best bet.

  3. Flax seed is a wonderful way to get your omega3's... however it's an unstable substance. You want to be careful what you buy since you don't want to waste your time/money. If it's liquid it needs something like CoQ10 to help stabilize, the seeds pass right through so skip those. Ground is good, but I don't know how to tell if it's quality. I take Arbonnes omega 3 supplement (flax based). You should remind me to ask Dr. Columbini this week. :)
