A New Year, A New Lifestyle: How Gluten-free has changed my life.

Happy New Year (1)Happy new year everyone!!!!!! I still can’t believe it’s almost been a year since I began Inches Miles Moments. I am humbled to receive messages from those of you who have been affected in some way by my weight loss journey. I am so excited for everything this upcoming year has to offer and can’t wait to get started on my new list of goals. I apologize for the lack of blog posts in the past few months. I have been personally dealing with an extreme diet change based on a diagnosis I received in October that has required me to go gluten-free. After a year of getting tested by a long list of different kinds of doctors, I finally have an answer. After three months of no gluten, I have started recognizing parts of my body, personality, attitude, and spirit that I haven’t seen in years. This is how going gluten-free has changed my life.

Calorie Counting: The Easy Way To Keep Track and Lose Weight!

pantsLosing weight is a very difficult thing to do if you don’t know how! There are SO many diet fads out there: Paleo, vegan, gluten-free, Atkins, etc. Everyone is different and one might work for you over others. The reason I was so successful my first year of weight loss was thanks to the Jenny Craig diet program! I was in college and having a weeks worth of food shipped to me already packaged, measured, and calorie counted was the easiest way for me to quickly begin eating healthy without much thought. Not everyone has the luxury of being able to be on a program like that, in fact, I had a hard time figuring out what kind of food and how much of it I should be eating after I stopped eating Jenny Craig meals. Luckily, Jenny Craig did teach me one thing very important to losing weight: PORTION CONTROL.

My Favorite Healthy Snacks

-POP

Before I started losing weight, snacking was my worst enemy. Throughout school, I learned a very depressing fact about myself…..I am a stress eater. I know, it’s terrible. If I was cramming for an exam, waiting for news, watching TV, or upset about something sitting in my apartment I would always have a craving to go to the snack cabinet and grab something to eat to take my mind off of it. The only thing that stopped me from snacking when I began my weight loss journey was not having unhealthy snacks around the house. If they weren’t around, I couldn’t eat them! But, it’s important to keep healthy snacks around when you are craving a little something. Here is a list of my favorite healthy snacks for those munchie moments.

Suja’s 3-day Fresh Start Juice Cleanse Review!

New-Essentials-Fresh-Start-Photo

Anytime I’m feeling a bit gross, run down, or bloated it’s typically due to the food I’ve been eating, especially after a vacation! I was in major need of a cleanse this week and turned to Suja’s 3-day fresh start juice cleanse from Costco. I have seen this little box at Costco before for only $30, and once I decided to try it, it was already gone from the store! They go quickly so when I saw them on the shelves over the weekend, I scooped one up immediately! Don’t worry though if you don’t have a Costco membership, they sell a different Suja juice cleanse at Target as well if you’re interested in their products! After 3 days, I’ve lost 1.5 lbs and feel lighter and ready for the weekend. Here’s my recap of the meals, juices, and experience!

Brazil Nuts & Best Friends: Both good for your health!

FriendsI’m coming close to approaching the two year mark since I graduated from Indiana University and I’ve made an effort to revisit my college campus at least once a year since I’ve left. It’s filled with so many incredible memories that fill my heart with joy the second I drive back into town. It also helped that it was seventy degrees there this past weekend with a blue sky, big white puffy clouds, and a sun that wouldn’t stop shining!  (more…)
