Spice Up Your Life


Happy Game Week Y'all! Football is back and Bama is facing off Wisconsin on Saturday in Dallas.  Even though I'm scared to face another football season and deal with tailgating food and drink head on, I'm so happy to watch another season of Crimson Tide football.  So, Roll Tide Y'all! I weighed Saturday for the first time in over a month.  The good news is I was almost the exact same weight as a month before so I haven't gained weight.  The bad news is, I have a lot of work to do so I need to get my mind right.  One thing I noticed that amazed me as I was looking at my weight tracker is that from the end of April this year to the end of June, I managed to gain 11 pounds.  That is just so crazy to me.  I can pack it on! I was lazy and ate too much yesterday but other than that, I had a pretty good week.  I am going to start weighing weekly again and hopefully I will start seeing some positive results.  I would love to lose around 20 pounds before Christmas.  It won't be easy, especially since I chose the holiday portion of the year but I'm going to do my best.  Right now, my biggest concern is staying strong and motivated every day.





My mom is doing an amazing job right now with her health and looks great! She has a renewed energy that I wish would rub off on me.  She told me about this ranch made from Greek yogurt.  It's from Bolthouse Farms and two tablespoons only costs you 45 calories. They also have a Blue Cheese version.  I'm a ranch snob so I didn't love it as much as my mom but it worked really well in the bacon, chicken ranch salad sandwich I made.  The combination of flavors masked any "diet" taste and it was quite tasty.  It's a good dressing to have on hand because as people who diet, we know that the battle with dressings is probably the hardest one.


One other thing that I'm super excited about is my new purchase of Flavor God seasonings. I haven't used them much because they are new but I plan on getting a ton of use out of them in the near future.  I had heard nothing but positive things from a woman that I know about them.  They have no chemicals in them, they are gluten free, exploding with flavor and have a long shelf life.  They are also 5 ounces, which is bigger than your normal spices. They are expensive but I feel like they are an investment.  I splurged and got the combo pack which included: Everything, Everything Spicy, Garlic Lovers, Lemon & Garlic, Pizza and Chipotle.  I added some of the Pizza to my eggs the other day and it was delicious.  Adding flavor to your food is so important to the dieting process.  I look forward to sharing recipes with you that I've used my new seasonings on. Until next week y'all...
