Day 21: Weigh Your Food-Sesame Ginger Beef Salad

Ive had this particular scale for over a year, but I’ve had a couple others in the past. This is the biggest and prettiest scale I’ve bought. You can buy this on amazon. Just search for food scales. You can weigh in grams, ounces, milliliters, and by the pound. I only started using this scale mid last week because I was waiting for a battery in the mail. Since then, I’ve been weighing everything and …

Day 20: Slack, but Don’t Give Up- Faux Pho Secret

It’s technically Day 21. Once again, I’m backtracking because I didn’t manage time correctly this week. I waited all the way until the last minute to do all my school work that was due by 9am this morning. So, I was up until 3 am doing homework! This week, I have to get back in the groove and be consistent with posting on my blog. After all, it is a 30 day challenge, and I …

Day 17: Asian Food Obsessions

I am obsessed with rice! I grew up eating rice with breakfast, lunch, and dinner! I grew up eating mostly Asian dishes as well. So, it was definitely hard only eating rice sparingly. I, to this day, only eat white rice once maybe twice a week! Today…I had rice for lunch and dinner, but it fit in my calories for the day so….yeah! What are some foods you’re obsessed with and how do you limit …

Day 16: (Late Post) If Someone Tells You That You Need Rest, You Probably Do

Hey! I know this post is a day late. If you haven’t caught the drift from the title, I was told that I just need to go to sleep and not get back up after the girls went to bed to do my usual cleaning, working out, tv time, etc. As you all know, I usually blog after they go to bed as well. I am trying to get on a better schedule and hope …

Day 15: I Haven’t Lost a Pound Yet

At the beginning of my journey, I advised you all that I am counting calories but not my macros. I got my macros off the Katy Hearn Macro Calculator and I don’t think the calories are low enough. Now mind you, I haven’t been following the macro numbers. So, I’m going to give the amount of calories another 2 weeks but now try to stay under or at the recommended macro amount for the day. …

Day 14: (Late Post) RIP Kobe & Gianna Bryant & Other Passengers

Day 14 was actually yesterday, and I guess I failed a day of my 30 day challenge. Guess what though, I’m here. I’m not giving up. I spent time with my family and we enjoyed a nice dinner out at an asian restaurant. That is the only meal I remember from yesterday. It was an eel roll, miso soup, and a side of mushrooms…oh and 3 shrimp tempura roll slices. Not to mention, I bullshitted …

I’m just sharing my journey, what works, and what …

Day 10: Blogging Every Day Isn’t Easy

Blogging consistently is one thing, but blogging every single day takes a lot of work! It’s currently 1:25 AM. I almost didn’t get to it today, but I couldn’t fail…especially publicly! Now that’s what you call accountability. What’s something you need someone to help hold you accountable for? What are ways you keep yourself motivated on your fitness journey? Here are some things I do to be consistent and motivated: -I envision my future if …

Day 9: Are You Using Your Disposal the Right Way?

What do you put down your garbage disposal? Do you put food down your disposal or throw it in the trash? I was taught that your food that is left on your plate should go in the disposal. My boyfriend said that putting food down there will break it. We have legit disagreed about this for many years, and I’m just now googling it. According to Delish.com’s Article, you can only put specific types of …

Day 8: Dedication Means My Downstairs Neighbor Hates Me

I currently live in a condo above someone. The only reason I don’t like working out at home is because I have to incorporate HIIT workouts with my weight training to burn off this fat. My HIIT workouts include burpees, running in place, quick feet, high knees, jump squats..any loud exercise…you name it. So, I’m pretty sure I sound like a stampede of elephants going by at all times of the day or night. When …

Day 7: How Many Calories Does Frying Food Add To The Recipe?

I bet you probably never asked yourself that question in the title. How many calories do you think frying adds to the food? W Well, I fell in to that rabbit hole of a google search today trying to figure out how many calories I just consumed after making and eating my copycat Chic-Fil-A Nuggets with Potato Wedges. I basically found out that nobody really knows, and that they are basically educated guesses. They say …

Day 6: Estimated My Calories all Day

Hopefully, I over-estimated rather than under-estimated. Saturday’s are family fun day in our family. So, Let’s just say today was a busy day and we were gone most of the day. I wasn’t prepared with meals. It took me almost 2 hours to get myself and the girls ready to leave the house looking clean and presentable. *Of course, my youngest had dried snot on her face in the car no matter how many times …

Day 5: Period Stain Anxiety at the Gym

Flo’ has finally left town! I couldn’t be happier to get back in the gym after a few days of working out at home. I don’t mind working out at home sometimes and on upper body days since I have dumbbells. When it comes to HIIT and Lower-body, I don’t like doing those at home….especially on heavy flo days lol. So. I want to to know… Am I the only one who fears “bleeding out” …

Day 4: Current Diet Style-If It Fits My Calories

Strict diets that eliminate food groups and have me eating grass all day aren’t for me. I love food, but I also want to love my body. I want to feel good. I used to do the IIFYM aka if it fits your macros way of eating, and it definitely worked because of the flexibility it gave me. Counting macros is basically tracking how many grams of protein, carbs, and fat you consume in a …

Day 3: Apps and Youtube Channels I Recommend for Work-Out Inspo

I wasn’t able to make it to the gym today. Hell, some days I don’t feel like leaving my house. On those days, I typically follow along to a workout on youtube. I’m well versed in different workouts and can create my own routine. I just find it more fun to workout with Youtubers or on the app I will let you know about below. It keeps me entertained and motivated. Today I worked out …
