I Ate The Damn Cake And Lost 21 Pounds

Today is a good day. No, a GREAT day.

This morning, I stepped on the scale and was amazed and ecstatic to see that I am officially 21 POUNDS LIGHTER since beginning my Intermittent Fasting journey at the end of January 2018. See the difference?

I've talked before about how I found IF and started my weight loss journey if you want to check it out.

The day I started IF, I weighed in at 149.8 lbs, the heaviest I'd ever been in my life. Today, I am 128.8 lbs. I haven't been close to this for almost a decade. I never thought I'd get back to 130 lbs, much less BELOW it!

And I did it without depriving myself, without sacrificing my favorite foods and without ever once feeling guilty about anything I ate.

Sure, I probably could've reached this milestone sooner had I been a bit stricter with myself, but that kind of defeats the purpose of what IF is all about.

Dr. Jason Fung, who's books on Intermittent Fasting can be found on the Resources page, says “Don’t try to fit Life i…

I Tried Those "Easy" Nail Polish Strips And Here's What Happened

I am a low maintenance person.

I love all the hair and makeup products. I wish I could be one of those women who always looks airbrushed and flawless with that perfect winged eye liner and just the right shade of lipstick, but that's just not me and I've learned to accept that. 

I typically don't have the patience for a full, daily beauty routine as I'm trying to rush out the door, especially when it comes to my poor nails.

Whenever a special event or holiday rolls around, I have the best intentions to get a manicure or at least take the time to polish and sculpt my nails, but it usually doesn't happen.

I get busy trying to get my hair to cooperate, or not get liquid liner EVERYWHERE, or finish packing to leave, or cleaning if guests are coming, so the nails get put on the back burner.

If by some MIRACLE of time management, through no fault of my own, I actually get them painted, without fail, I'll remember something else that needs doing and, no matter how careful …

Intermittent Feasting

Well, we made it through Thanksgiving. 

This was my first while practicing Intermittent Fasting. A holiday based around eating is usually a source of stress and panic when one is working on weight management, but not this year for this girl!

I went into the holiday feeling great, having just recently surpassed my goal weight and lost 22 pounds (yes, an extra pound since I wrote this post!). Some of my family was able to make it up to Colorado for a couple of days and I'd already made the decision that Thursday would be a "Planned Indulgence Day." 

A Planned Indulgence (you can read more about it here) is when you plan on having a shorter fasting window or longer eating window...or no fasting window at all. 

I didn't want to concern myself with windows, especially while surrounded with my loved ones and all the delicious food the holiday entails. PLUS Courtney and other friends were kind enough to share some very special family pie recipes with me, and darn it, I was goin…
