Weight Loss Wednesday: Mattie Lost 118 Pounds!

Name: Mattie
Height: 5′ 10″
Starting Weight: 331
Current Weight: 213
Pounds Lost: 118

How long did it take you to lose the weight? 2 years

Lightbulb Moment: When I had to wear shorts in November because none of my jeans fit anymore.

How did you do it? I started on Weight Watchers. I am currently not on WW as a paid subscriber, but I still follow it and use what I learned. At the beginning, I used WW online because I was too afraid to go to the meetings. At first I simply tried to change my eating habits… I had a horrible tendency of snacking and snacking so cutting back on that was the hardest. For the first 6 months or so I did not have a gym membership so I would walk around the park or do a similar activity. When I got my gym membership I really started to change. I walked on the treadmill at an incline (high incline with a 3.0-3.5 mph speed ). It started to become a habit. I became so accustomed to my eating and exercise routine that it became easy. Pushing through on the days I did not want to be there was the most important thing I learned. This changed my lifestyle. I was not focused on when my next meal was, but more focused on enjoying the little things instead!

Peanut Butter Banana Oat Bars

Peanut Butter Banana Oat Bars

Peanut butter and banana is probably one of my favorite combinations out there. As a kid, my all time favorite sandwich was crunchy peanut butter and sliced bananas on toast. I could have eaten it everyday. So when thinking about what kind of oat bars to make this past weekend, it was no surprise the dark ripe bananas and peanut butter called out to me. Combined with a few other ingredients and a touch of honey for sweetness, these bars make a terrific breakfast or snack.

Friday Five: At Home Workouts to Try

Friday Five:  At Home Workouts to Try

Although I don’t talk about exercise often here, it is something that I incorporate into my daily life. Although I don’t follow a perfectly regimented routine, I do incorporate some kind of cardio and toning workouts weekly. For cardio I normally either run or hike and for toning I like HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), classes, and some great 20-30 minute routines I have found online. Here are some of my favorite HIIT and at home toning workouts. What’s your workout routine?

1. Seven Minute HIIT Circuit from PopSugar: When I am really short on time I usually reach for this workout since it is so quick and leaves me sweaty every time. When I have extra time I do the circuit 2-3 times for a more complete workout.

2. Twenty Minute Medicine Ball Workout from Chris Freytag: This workout is amazing and who knew you could work so many parts of your body in just 20 minutes. All you need to complete it is a medicine ball. Don’t be surprised if it takes you awhile to get through the whole routine. It’s definitely not easy.

3. Five HIIT Cardio Workouts from Fitnessista: If you just want to incorporate interval training into your normal cardio routine to get better results, this five ideas for adding intervals are terrific. You can make them work for almost any cardio routine.

Cauliflower and Carrot Rice with Browned Butter

Cauliflower and Carrot Rice with Browned Butter

Over Christmas my Aunt made the most delicious cauliflower and carrot dish. Seriously. Everyone was going back for seconds. For weeks after, I tried to recreate it at home until I finally asked her the secret sauce and learned about the brown butter. That is the full 4 oz. of browned butter from this Ina Garten recipe. Since that wasn’t going to work for a healthy recipe, I set out to make a lightened up version that still incorporated brown butter, just not so much. I also made it as a rice but the original recipe calls for a mash. Either is delicious.

Andouille Sausage, Kale, and Root Vegetable Bake

Andouille Sausage, Kale, and Root Vegetable Bake

One dish recipes are some of my favorites and I have always loved the simple combination of sausages and veggies. The sausages impart great flavor into the roasted veggies and it makes a full meal without having to dirty up any other dishes. For this version I used Andouille chicken sausages which are packed with rich flavor from chile powder, paprika, cumin, black pepper, and garlic. Then I paired it with red onions, kale, rainbow carrots, and celery root. (You could use any combination of vegetables you like.) Baked in the oven for about 35 minutes and dinner is ready.
