Healthy fridge, originally uploaded by nikkifilo.
So glad that my fridge is “healthy”. Losing weight is always a struggle, but when you’re surrounded by healthy options, it is a little easier. I always love to restock the fridge on food shopping days. I love getting rid of the old stuff and putting all the new yummy FRESH foods in. Several meals in pieces, like a puzzle, waiting to be put together. Options, options, options.
I’ve been on this weight loss journey since 2005 when I had Jack. I have been up and down through 3 full term pregnancies(including a 37 week stillbirth) and a 12 week pregnancy that ended in miscarriage. When I was pregnant with Ben I was soooo ready to get rid of the weight once and for all…and I’m getting there. Since my final days of pregnancy I have lost about 60 lbs!!!! That’s about 20 lbs less than when I got pregnant. I still have about 15 lbs to go…and I’m really hoping to get there by summer.
Some of my staple fridge items include:
-When Pigs Fly Tuscan Wheat Bread
-Polar Seltzer Water–Cranberry Lime or Pomegranate
-bottled waters (not shown)
-hot peppers (to spice up blah foods)
-prewashed greens–spinach, arugala, romaine etc.
-reduced fat string cheese
-Newman’s Own “low fat” salad dressings
-seasoned rice vinegar (so yummy on broccoli!)
Anyhoo. After a little vacation in Florida I’m absolutely aching for summer. And feeling good in shorts and a bathing suit will make it even better! BTW–I track my calories/exercise on http://www.sparkpeople.com.
