Just say NO!

So I have decided to stop going to Chick-fil-a.  I mean I really don't eat there often but the off chance of maybe thinking about it I will just say no.  There are two reasons for this 

1) STYROFOAM!!!  They use styrofoam and apparently have no problems with it.  I just don't understand a company that is going to say they take a stance on being closed on Sundays but keep dumping tons of styrofoam into the landfills.  Styrofoam can not be recycled and it does not breakdown like other sorts of trash so basically every single Chick-fil-a cup will sit in a landfill FOREVER!

2) SODIUM!!!!  The food Chick-fil-a serves is LOADED with sodium.  I ran some numbers for you to see how bad...a "classic" chicken sandwich from Chick-fil-a (that they are "known for") has 1410mg of sodium!  2500 is your recommended daily intake.  You can eat the knock off sandwich at McDonalds (Southern Style Chicken Sandwich) for 1030mg of sodium!  McDonalds is the better choice people...how sad is that?  Okay here's one reason to limit you sodium intake, the more of it you consume on a daily basis the less you can taste it.  Example, switch to no salt added canned green beans from regular and you basically have to choke them down the first time because of lack of salt.  Once you get used to eating those, switch back once and try to eat the regular canned green beans and you will gag!  Too much sodium messes with your taste buds, not to mention raising your blood pressure, etc.  

Again, I just say...a company that wants to get all up on it's high horse that they are so "moral" for closing on Sundays might want to reevaluate some of those other "morals" they are lacking!

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
