food yummy yummy yummy............

ok so as you can see this post is going to be about none other then food! I have been trying so hard to change my look food and how food is really honestly changeing my life! Now like everyone else I know and have talked to I looked a lot different on my wedding day then I do now. I have been looking at those pictures a lot, and thinking what did I do different back then. Well first off I was so excited to look good for my wedding day that I was eatting right and back heathy choices. My day would look like for breakfast I would have a protin shake, or two eggs with cheese a slice of bacon and a glass of milk. Then I would walk or ride my bike to work or school. Next for Lunch I would have a salad with grilled chicken or spanich salad with lemon poppy seed dressing. I would came home from work. Walk or run the trail b y my house for 30 to 45 mins. then for dinner have chicken or fish. every day was the same.

Now I look at myself and see that it is not like that anymore. I get up and I have to make myself eat, then by lunch time I am so hungry I am not sure at what to eat, so I eat what I see! I walk when handly hardly anymore at all, and at dinner making something for dinner that is healthy is hard.
But after two and a half weeks with Mamavation and now doing Pete Cohen 28 program I am doing so much better! My last two days have been so much better! I am not saying by any way that I am back to my old self, but I am getting there, now when I wake up I make sure I eat, and I am exersing everyday! I cook a dinner every night is not only a dinner for me, but a healthy dinner for my family! I am doing wii fitt every day and well I have lost five and a half pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know that without Leah and all you other Mamavation sister I would never be able to do this. So thank you!

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

4 teaspoons sugar

2/3 teaspoon dry mustard

2/3 teaspoon salt, adjust to taste

2 teaspoons lemon juice

2/3 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon poppy seed


1 lb spinach and 1 lb of roman hearts(lettuce)

1 (11 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained

1/4 lb bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled

1 medium avocado, sliced

1/4 medium red onion, cut into rings or 3 green onions

1:Dressing: Combine all ingredients and whisk to emulsify.

Now there is so many other things that you can add to your salad or take away! Also I love adding grill chicken on it so yummy!
