Stronger U Q&A

Today I’m sharing with you a little more about the Stronger U diet, and why I chose to go this route.  I also have a Q&A with my coach to answer questions you may have! First I’ll tell you what brought me to Stronger U.  I KNOW I’m not ‘fat’ or even ‘big.’  But I am the quintessential example of weight creeping on slowly over the years.  When I was younger, I could eat whatever I wanted (within reason) and stay the same weight.  That was me my whole life: I didn’t have to fight to be skinny; I was just naturally thin.  As I’ve gotten older, I have found that I can’t just eat whatever I want.  But I […]

Stronger U Food Diary: Week 1

I can’t even tell you how many diets my mom has tried over the years, but I feel like every month or so for my entire life it was always something new.  You know how you always say you won’t turn out like your mom and then you do?  Well, this was one of those things.  I wasn’t going to always try new diets.  And then….I became adult, and (in this aspect) I became my mother.

Vegan Update: Week 4

Oatmeal with granola, almond butter, and banana. Happy Monday!  We are OFFICIALLY in the homestretch of our 30 day vegan diet!!  I am actually having my first non-vegan meal on Wednesday night (the 30th day) because I am going out for a birthday dinner and I’ll be honest: I’m just not going out again and eating vegan!  I went out with a girlfriend last week who was in town visiting.  She wanted to try a new restaurant, Zeppelin.  I was eager to try it, too!  They are known for having great cocktails and interesting small plates.  Well, it turned out I was getting my eyebrows done the next day (permanent makeup), so I couldn’t drink alcohol.  To make matters worse, […]

Vegan Update: Week 3

Happy Monday!!  First of all, THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who donated to my fundraiser for the Sherry Spin-Along.  Sherry is a personal friend of mine and I truly believe that these dollars go towards saving her life and others, so it is very close to my heart.  THANK YOU, THANK YOU.  I was overwhelmed by the number of people who donated.  Because of you I was the number one fundraiser (if you don’t count Martin and Sherry, which I don’t LOL)! The donation site will be open for the rest of the week, so if you didn’t get a chance there is still time!  I received donations from $10-$1000 and I’m equally thankful for all of them!!  EVERY […]
