I am back. 20lbs heavier and not happy about it. I am NOT looking for pity just maybe someone that has been there too. I have not been doing what I need to do since about August of last year and it shows. I half heartedly put forth effort for a week or so then get derailed again. So here I am.

I am making one goal this week.

IF YOU START IT, FINISH IT.

This goes for so much stuff in my life right now from dishes and laundry to glasses of water, workouts and bigger home projects. I am realistic and know that not all things can be finished the same day but I know what I need to do.

Thanks in advance for welcoming me back.

I am struggling too...old patterns, working too much, not saying no, making myself the lowest priority. Time to stop, because doing what I've always done will get me what I always got, which was not healthy physically or emotionally. And my tail is being kicked on both fronts right about now.

Goals now, then I will check in later.

1. 1300 calories max daily.
2. Exercise 5 times this week.
3. Log everything.
4. Eat clean; no trigger foods.
5. 64 oz. fluids daily.
6. Take vitamins and supplements.

Hi April

Nice to meet you! I assume from what you wrote and the response that you have been here before.

Cassie- what happened? working too hard? Not putting yourself first? We know where that goes. Hope you are feeling better.

Hi, go to the site allrecipes.com and look for quinoa fritattas - I really like them
And of course there are other recipes to try

Robin, I love this one, too Perry's Plate: Dishing up real-food recipes and really good desserts Grilled Garlic Shrimp + Quinoa with Garlic, Nuts, & Raisins But I usually cook the shrimp in a frying pan and not on the grill; it's just quicker.
And yes, I know better. I just did not practice what I preach. I have a light week this week, relatively, so no better time to get back on track.

And as Jezzie of the lovely cat avatar says, allrecipes is a great site...you can search by ingredient, so go there and type in quinoa; you will find quite a few possibilities.
