Welcome to my blog!

I have always loved to bake - mostly because I can follow instructions and recipes, and I have had good luck with my turnout. But, more recently, I have learned the joy of cooking. I love trying out new recipes, and I like to play with recipes to accommodate my finicky tastes.

I find inspiration in the healthy blogging community. I wanted to start a blog to share the recipes I have tried with you, but I also want to share with you my healthy living goals, plans, and actions in hopes to inspire some of you as well.

I love feedback, so please leave me comments, suggestions, and questions.

I hope you enjoy my blog!

Out of Control Appetite

My appetite was out of control Monday.  I just did not feel satisfied after anything I ate.  I hate that feeling, because I knew I wasn't really hungry, but I ate anyway.  And, I didn't exactly make the healthiest choices.  Oh well, back to clean eating yesterday and today.  Today I woke up and had a bowl of Barbara's Bakery Shredded Wheat with skim milk.  I did Stephanie Vitarino's Six-Round Slimdown.  It wasn't really as challenging as I had hoped.  I definitely needed to up the weights.  She was using 5-pound dumbells, and that just wasn't enough weight for me. 

After my shower, I ate a slice of Ezekiel Sesame bread with almond butter.  When I got to work I sliced up a pair and had a two very thick slices of provolone.  For lunch today, I had a bowl of quinoa with french green lentils, steamed brussels sprouts, cilantro, and fresh lime juice.  Random, I know.  I have some strange concoctions, but they are always delicious!  After lunch I had a mango, some blueberries, and strawberries, and another honkin' slice of provolone cheese.  My tummy is rumbling a little bit from all that dairy - oh well, I LOVE IT! 

Dinner tonight will be a turkey burger on the grill with a chipotle chile in adobo minced into the meat.  I will enjoy that on a toasted Ezekiel english muffin with a few pieces of romaine lettuce, some sweet corn, and a few kale chips.  For dessert tonight, I am thinking of having a grilled banana with dark chocolate.  I was going to have cheese on my turkey burger, but I think I have met my dairy quota for the day!  Plus, I have some greek yogurt in the fridge that I know I won't be able to stay out of after dinner tonight.

Thanks for reading, and I am going to try to stay up to date on my posts.  It keeps me accountable.  I ate terribly over the weekend.  I find that if I write down what I eat, even if no one is reading this blog, it helps me with my clean eating initiative.
