breaking news: my oats are back | Journey for Jessi

My oats are back and I couldn’t be happier!  Exaggeration?  Yeah, right.  Well, first off, I was very indecisive this morning, so I took my dilemma to snapchat {@emvalerioti}, “Oats or Eggs for my b-fast?”  The polls came rolling in and you all said oats!  I probably would have made oats anyway.  Does anyone else do this?  You think you are indecisive on something, then ask around or flip a coin and you are unhappy with the result and go the other direction?  I do this constantly.  Eh, that’s okay because it brings me to a decision doesn’t it?  Anyway… this morning I made an old staple: Apples & Cinnamon Oats.

day sixteen | reignitedHappy Saturday!  It was a great day of training and getting back on track with my meals.  After one hiccup today while training (eat protein before squatting people—not just a green smoothie), I got back to the grind and successfully rounded out my first week on my new program.  Whoop!  Plus, after a some inspiring words from the Whole30‘s Stephanie, I   managed to control my snacking and cravings more today than I have been.   Continue reading

day thirteen | health binge

day fourteen | health binge | Journey for Jessi

Uh-oh.  I have a confession.  I have been “healthy” binging.  I am not saying that binging is healthy by any means.  What I am saying is that I have been consuming a lot of healthy foods (mostly healthy fats) to an excess.  Yeah, it’s time to stop that.  Continue reading
