Crockpot Raspberry Chipotle Chicken: Perfectly tender and juicy shredded chicken with a sweet and spicy kick!

One of my favorite meal prep options is crockpot shredded chicken. Almost every week I make some variety of chicken in the crockpot to bring for lunches, and somehow I’m still not sick of it. Probably because I’m always changing it up and trying new things, but I have to tell you this was one of my favorites.

One of my favorite lunch spots is Costa Vita because they have this amaaaaazing raspberry chipotle chicken salad. I love the sweet and spicy combination and raspberry and chipotle just go together like pb&j.

This is a great meal prep option because you can use it so many different ways–you don’t just eat the same thing day after day. I suggest making sandwiches, a taco-type salad, and maybe even stuffing a spaghetti squash! Although, I have to admit, I ate the majority with just a fork. ;)

Paleo Banana Bread

Paleo Banana Bread: Ultra soft and tender, sweetened with maple syrup

Perfectly soft and tender paleo banana bread sweetened with maple syrup and made with wholesome ingredients, but it tastes just like the classic treat!

Paleo Banana Bread: Ultra soft and tender, sweetened with maple syrup

How do you like your bananas? I used to love mine when they got the perfectly speckled with little brown dots–you know soft and sweet, but not mushy? Not a hint of green on them. Then when I started eating them before running, something changed and as soon as they got the slightest bit of brown I was done for, and I had to wait for them to get even more ripe and make them into banana bread. That’s when I started making a lot of banana bread.

Paleo Banana Bread: Ultra soft and tender, sweetened with maple syrup

And somehow I still always end up with unused bananas, so like once a week I end up telling myself I’m going to make banana bread. Usually I forget until the bananas are too far gone, but this batch was so freaking easy to whip up, and it might be the softest banana bread, like, ever.

Paleo Banana Bread: Ultra soft and tender, sweetened with maple syrup

My friend Lisa was coming over for dinner, and she told me she was eating paleo, so when she arrived I told her I made her a paleo dessert, which I don’t think she even knew could exist because she was like “HOW????” I am pretty set against following specific diets for myself, but I love experimenting with all sorts, and I really do believe that no matter how you’re eating, you can still enjoy delicious treats. Although I have to admit I did get real tired of ricotta cheese with splenda during those awful South Beach days…

Paleo Banana Bread: Ultra soft and tender, sweetened with maple syrup

Anyway, this banana bread is nothing like that. It is sweetened with maple syrup (which makes everything better, IMO), and it’s made with almond meal. If you haven’t used almond meal for baking yet, you haaaaave to try it. Everything turns out so soft and tender–it’s AWESOME! Between the bananas and the almond meal, it doesn’t need a drop of oil or butter. Just a handful of ingredients you probably already have on hand and you’re good to go!

Gluten-Free Pizza at Pizza Hut!

pizzahut-9

You guys, I am so excited!!!! As much as I am passionate about healthy living and making the most of my own food, I think we can all agree that sometimes you just need a night at home with sweat pants, Netflix, and pizza. Ever since I started eating gluten-free, pizza has been one of the only things I have truly missed. In fact, Steve and I have been on the hunt for good gluten-free pizza for a good year now. pizzahut-1 Luckily, we do have a great food scene in Phoenix and we’ve found some great places, but delivery pizza has still been the one thing I felt like I couldn’t do and, let me tell ya, when you work with kids, you end up out of luck a lot if you don’t eat pizza. It’s the easy thing to do when you’re in a group, and everyone loves pizza! pizzahut-5 I was super stoked when I found out that Pizza Hut® is now offering a “Gluten-Free Pizza” option, and I was even more excited when I found out they had partnered with Udi’s® certified gluten-free crust! Udi’s is definitely my go-to for the best gluten-free products, and I knew the pizza would not disappoint! pizzahut-9 They offer a cheese-only and pepperoni option, or you can choose the “create your own” option, which is what I did. I added chicken and swapped the traditional marinara sauce for buffalo to replicate a buffalo chicken pizza and it was delicious! Just a side note — the buffalo sauce is not stored in the designated gluten-free container and is not typically allowed on the gluten-free crust for this reason. pizzahut-2 Pizza Hut has even partnered with the Gluten Intolerance Group to work on the process of preparing the pizza. Only the cheese-only and pepperoni are GIG certified, so be sure to notify them when you order if you have an intolerance so they can take all the proper precautions. pizzahut-7 Pizzas start at just $9.99 and you can find a list of locations carrying the gluten-free crust here. Aaaaaand SheKnows is offering a $100 gift card to one lucky reader! Just leave a comment below telling me what your favorite kind of pizza is to be entered for a chance to win!

German Chocolate Cheesecake

German Chocolate Cheesecake

Rich, velvety German chocolate cheesecake with toasted coconut and a crumbly chocolate cookie crust drizzled with even more chocolate. A chocolate and coconut lover’s dream.

German Chocolate Cheesecake: My family's favorite cheesecake recipe!

Okay, so I’ve kinda been holding out on you. I’ve been needing to share this cheesecake with you for literally months. The first time I made it was for my brother’s birthday last year, and it was such a hit that I made it again for Father’s Day just a month and a half later. I bake so much that my family has never asked for a repeat so quickly, and they are still talking about it.

German Chocolate Cheesecake: My family's favorite cheesecake recipe!

Once I sliced it up over at my mom’s house, I was totally kicking myself for not getting a photo of it that way. Each slice was picture perfect, but it wasn’t for me, so I left the whole thing in tact. First world food blogger problems.

German Chocolate Cheesecake: My family's favorite cheesecake recipe!

When I saw that this month’s theme for The Recipe ReDux was chocolate pairings, I had the harrrrrdesttt time choosing what I wanted to do. My brain was like “DUHHH! PEANUT BUTTER”, but then it was like… “Uggghhhh everyone does chocolate and peanut butter. Chocolate and peppermint! Noooo, that’s for Christmas time. CHOCOLATE AND SALT!!!” But then all I wanted to do was take a photo of my favorite salted dark chocolate bar (which was probably gone by then anyway…let’s be honest), so I went with the long forgotten middle child–COCONUT!

Why does coconut always get forgotten? Mounds? Almond Joy? Does anyone else love them as much as I do??? And these coconut mocha brownies? Ridiculous. But I have to admit, I think this cheesecake is even better.

German Chocolate Cheesecake: My family's favorite cheesecake recipe!

It all starts with a crumbly oreo cookie crust, then creamy German chocolate cheesecake, topped with the creamiest coconut topping, more chocolate and extra toasted coconut for good measure. You can add nuts to the topping if you’d like, but I don’t dig nuts in my desserts. Just chocolate and coconut for me, thanks!

Rich, velvety German chocolate cheesecake with toasted coconut and a crumbly chocolate cookie crust drizzled with even more chocolate. A chocolate and coconut lover's dream.
Ingredients
For the crust:
  • 12 ounces chocolate sandwich cookies (I used gluten-free)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
For the cheesecake:
  • 8 ounces reduced fat cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 8 ounces fat free cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate (+ extra for drizzling later), melted and cooled (or milk chocolate or Baker's German chocolate if you can find it!)
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 5 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
For the coconut topping:
  • ¾ cup shredded coconut
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup full fat canned coconut milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ teaspoon bourbon, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 10" springform pan with nonstick spray. Wrap a layer of tinfoil tightly around the outside of the pan. Set aside.
  2. To make the crust, pulse chocolate sandwich cookies in your food processor until they become fine crumbs. Stream in coconut oil. Press crust into the bottom of your prepared baking pan. Bake until just set, about 7-10 minutes. Let cool.
  3. To make the cheesecake beat cream cheese, melted chocolate and brown sugar together in a large bowl until well combined. Add eggs one at a time, beating until just combined. Add vanilla and almond extracts and continue beating until no lumps remain, scraping down the sides of the bowl when necessary.
  4. Pour cheesecake batter over crust. Place in a water bath (in a larger pan filled with 1-2" water) and bake until fully set, 50-55 minutes. Cool for 30-60 minutes before adding topping.
  5. To make coconut topping, combine shredded coconut, brown sugar, coconut oil and coconut milk in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and stir for 3-5 minutes until thickened. Pour onto cooled cheesecake. Drizzle with extra melted chocolate and top with toasted coconut, if desired. Cover and chill in the refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.

Okay, so I am a huge egg fan. Pretty much any way you can prepare them, and for any meal of the day, I’m game. They are such a great, inexpensive and healthy way to get protein, so when I got the opportunity to work with Eggland’s Best, I was immediately on board!

Egg Salad with Bacon: Lightened up, protein packed egg salad with crispy center cut bacon--easy and delicious!

Compared to regular eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs have 25% less saturated fat, 1o x more vitamin E, 4 x more vitamin D and 3 x more vitamin B12. Whoa! For more information on their nutrition, check out their nutrition info.

I was super excited to find out they sell hardboiled eggs cooked and peeled. It made making this egg salad so easy. I often hard boil several eggs at once to keep them on hand, but when I’m in a time crunch, it’s great to have the option of having all of that done for me. Plus, boiling eggs is one of those simple things that I always manage to mess up.

To add even more protein to this egg salad (and cut some of the fat), I swapped most of the mayo with nonfat plain Greek yogurt. You can always use all Greek yogurt, but I find that the tiny bit of light mayo really does add to the flavor and makes it taste more like traditional egg salad.

Egg Salad with Bacon: Lightened up, protein packed egg salad with crispy center cut bacon--easy and delicious!

A few weeks ago, I happened to have some left over cooked bacon lying around so I threw some on my egg salad sandwich. It.Was.Awesome. Like, I never want to eat my egg salad without it again. It’s one of those amazing secrets I almost wish I didn’t know, but now I know and there is no going back.

I also add a little Spike seasoning. My mom always put it in our egg salad growing up, and it’s an other one of those things that I just can’t do without. I literally use it on everything, but it is mandatory in my egg salad. Of course, you can replace it with whatever spices you like to keep on hand, but I recommend going with the Spike–you will thank me for sure! :)

Boozy Red Velvet Hot Chocolate

Rich, creamy and boozy red velvet hot chocolate made with cream cheese and almond milk for an ultra creamy texture combined with white and dark chocolate chips and cake flavored vodka. 

Boozy Red Velvet Hot Chocolate: Rich and decadent with white & dark chocolate + cream cheese melted in!

You guys, you guys, you guys, youuuu guuuuyyyysss! I am so excited I’m about to burst! Today we’re throwing a virtual baby shower for my BBFF (best blog friend forever…yup, we’re nerdy) Nicole from The Marvelous Misadventures of a Foodie. I cannot believe that within the next month Nicole will have a tiny human, and I will have to stop referring to him/her as White Baby. I’m a little sad about that.

Boozy Red Velvet Hot Chocolate: Rich and decadent with white & dark chocolate + cream cheese melted in!

Surrrrprise Nicole! It’s your party! Whenever I think of Nicole’s blog and her favorite foods, I think about pizza, brownies and drinks. So today all of the recipes will be just that–pizza, brownies and booze! I had grand plans for this super amazing infusion I wanted to create, but I couldn’t find all the ingredients I needed, so I went with plan B, and I can’t say I’m disappointed. ;)

Boozy Red Velvet Hot Chocolate: Rich and decadent with white & dark chocolate + cream cheese melted in!

This hot chocolate is totally over the top rich and creamy thanks to the cream cheese. I used a combination of white and dark chocolate chips to get the traditional vanilla and chocolate flavor of red velvet. If you have any buttermilk on hand, you can also add a tablespoon or two, but I didn’t and I didn’t want to get a whole container just for a few tablespoons, ya know?

Boozy Red Velvet Hot Chocolate: Rich and decadent with white & dark chocolate + cream cheese melted in!

So make sure as you sip on your boozy red velvet hot chocolate, that you head over and give Nicole some love and congratulations for growing a whole human! Also, I put together a little list of my 5 favorite recipes that I’ve tasted from her. It was so freaking hard because I seriously love everything she makes, but I’d start with her Bacon Infused Bourbon, DIY Pumpkin Pie Vodka, Mexican Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Ultimate Candy Bar Brownies, and Red Velvet Ice Cream.

Total time: 

Serves: 3

Rich, creamy and boozy red velvet hot chocolate made with cream cheese and almond milk for an ultra creamy texture combined with white and dark chocolate chips and cake flavored vodka.
Ingredients
  • 3 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 2 ounces reduced fat cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ⅓ cup white chocolate chips
  • ⅓ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon red food coloring
  • 3-4 shots cake flavored vodka (depending how strong you want it)
  • whipped cream for topping
Instructions
  1. Heat almond milk, cream cheese, and white and dark chocolate chips in a medium sauce pan over medium heat whisking constantly until all ingredients are melted and mostly combined. The cream cheese may separate a little bit--the next step will fix this.
  2. Transfer liquid to a blender and blend until frothy and combined. Pour back into sauce pan and over low heat, whisk in vanilla, food coloring and vodka. Serve immediately topped with whipped cream.
Notes
*If you'd like, add 1-2 tablespoons buttermilk. This will give you even more of the red velvet flavor, but it is not required if you don't have it on hand.
**A cake vodka whipped cream or a cream cheese whipped cream take this to the next level!

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies: Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside bakery-style cookies with fluffy cream cheese frosting

Rich, nutty, bakery-style browned butter funfetti cookies are everything you could dream of in a cookie–crunchy outside with a soft and chewy inside. 

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies: Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside bakery-style cookies with fluffy cream cheese frosting

Guessssss what??? IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! And a big one. The big 3-0 or, as I like to call it, 20-10. And we’re celebrating with my favorite cookies. Yes. My very favorite cookies I have ever made, tasted, smelled, etc. They are absolute heaven, and I knew I had to save them for a special occasion to share with you because they are totally, unapologetically indulgent.

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies: Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside bakery-style cookies with fluffy cream cheese frosting

After I got home from New York in November, I wanted to make myself a special marathon treat, and I had been craving a perfect funfetti cookie since trying the one from Schmackary’s. Word has it, Obama sends his secret service men to Schmakary’s to get him cookies when he’s in the city. Fancy.

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies: Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside bakery-style cookies with fluffy cream cheese frosting

Well, I have a confession. I promise, as much as I love attention, I really do hate to toot my own horn. I actually consider myself a fairly modest person, and I always have a hard time telling you how delicious my recipes are because I feel kind of like a tool–like when you talk about how good the food you made was during dinner? It’s, like, the most uncomfortable thing. But THESE COOKIES. I will shout it from the rooftops. I liked them better thank Schmakary’s. I’m sorry. No, I’m not. Those are great, but this is better.

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies: Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside bakery-style cookies with fluffy cream cheese frosting

Apparently birthday week means browned butter week? These were my first time baking (or even tasting!) browned butter, but like I said about the browned butter spaghetti squash–it was sooooo worth the hype! That rich, nutty flavor is uncanny and canNOT be recreated with any substitutes. Every once in a while, it’s just worth having a real, full fat, indulgent cookie. And this was one of those times.

Browned Butter Funfetti Cookies: Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside bakery-style cookies with fluffy cream cheese frosting

They came out just like I imagined them–perfectly crunchy outsides with ultra soft, chewy insides. Steve even agreed that he’s rather have mine than the one from Schmakary’s and this one is gluten-free, although you’d never know it. Of course, if you eat gluten, feel free to use white whole wheat flour, or even (gasp) all purpose. I haven’t bought that stuff in years, but these babies are meant for full enjoyment, so have at it! And if you’re so inclined, top ‘em off with some light and fluffy cream cheese frosting. It’s also worth it.

Vanilla Bean Hot White Chocolate: A silky, creamy, vegan hot white chocolate with just 3 ingredients and under 200 calories! Every year it cracks me up how January 1st happens and everyone is like “OMGGGG I’m gonna be so healthy! I’m gonna search Google for every recipe that ever included kale, and I’m totally gonna #eatclean.” Then by February 1st (or, really, even earlier), we’re back to chocolate and rich, sugary Valentine’s Day desserts. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love any excuse to eat chocolate, and I do actually love Valentine’s Day, even though we don’t celebrate it super traditionally. I feel like regardless of it being a total greeting card holiday, it’s nice to have a fun holiday to celebrate everyone you love. Friends, family, significant others, etc. I love love. And I love celebrating. Vanilla Bean Hot White Chocolate: A silky, creamy, vegan hot white chocolate with just 3 ingredients and under 200 calories! Usually Steve and I keep things low key. Neither of us are crowd people, so instead of trying to get into a trendy restaurant, we usually make a fancy-for-us dinner at home, and call it a night. Super exciting over at my house, let me tell ya. But I do love snuggling up together on the couch with a big ole mug of hot chocolate. Or, in this case, hot white chocolate. Vanilla Bean Hot White Chocolate: A silky, creamy, vegan hot white chocolate with just 3 ingredients and under 200 calories! The white chocolate and bold vanilla is paired with Silk®’s new irresistibly creamy cashewmilk! Cashews are a softer, smoother nut than almonds, and that translates perfectly into the milk, which is only 25 calories per cup in the Silk® Unsweetened Cashewmilk (60 calories in the original)! Whaaaaattt? Give me 7 cups. Seriously. I’ve been drinking it plain, eating it with my cereal, and throwing it in my smoothies. It’s so versatile, and I seriously love it so much more than cow’s milk. And I love the heck out of real cheese, so it really is just a taste preference. Vanilla Bean Hot White Chocolate: A silky, creamy, vegan hot white chocolate with just 3 ingredients and under 200 calories! The whole recipe comes together in about 5 minutes, and it’s so rich and creamy, you’d never guess it comes in at around 200 calories! That is if you can limit yourself to one cup, which is no easy feat, but let’s pretend you’re better at moderation than I am. ;) I topped things off with a touch of whipped coconut cream, and it was perfection–perfect for enjoying with whomever you’re celebrating with this Valentine’s Day!

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

Bold, rich, nutty parmesan garlic brown butter spaghetti squash is the perfect comforting side dish. Tons of nutty, garlic-y flavor, low carb, gluten-free, and just 4 ingredients (+ salt and pepper)!

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

Welcome to the last week of my twenties. So I’m totally that person that is obsessed with my birthday. Like, on my whiteboard at school, there has been a countdown for about two weeks. I love to be celebrated, and I shamelessly love to be the center of attention. I feel like as long as I don’t become one of those people that needs any kind of attention (you know, the poor me, I’ll act crazy so people notice me types?), I refuse to become someone who feels ashamed of loving attention. Why do you think I majored in musical theatre? ;)

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

But have I mentioned how I’m spending the day of the big 3-0? Oh, you know, waking up at 3:30 am to leave on a 4am bus to a musical theatre competition in California with my students. I know. Luckily I love them, and I know it will be a fun trip, but I’d rather be drinking multiple old fashioneds with Steve and having a super sentimental birthday dinner at my favorite restaurant.

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

Ooooh, orrrrrr eating a big steak (Steve is the grill master) and a huge pile of this spaghetti squash at home. Because this dish is so freaking good, it is definitely  birthday dinner worthy. In fact, it was totally fight over the leftovers worthy, and goes down in history as a tie for my favorite thing I have ever made with spaghetti squash.

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

I know, I know, with butter in the title and shots of literally pouring butter onto the food, this hardly seems like a healthy recipe, but honestly for the amount of butter per serving, it’s really not too shabby, and it is so, so, so worth it. The flavor of browned butter is so bold that a little bit goes a long way. It doesn’t hurt that the garlic is cooked in the browned butter. I diiiiie.

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

This was my first time using browned butter in a savory recipe. Actually, I just used it for the first time, like at all, a couple of months ago and, well, now I get it. As a recovering butter hater, let me just say: It’s totally worth it.

Parmesan Garlic Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash: The ultimate healthy comfort side dish!

So dive in. Embrace the browned butter. It comes with a vegetable. ;)

Bold, rich, nutty parmesan garlic brown butter spaghetti squash is the perfect comforting side dish. Tons of nutty, garlic-y flavor, low carb, gluten-free, and just 4 ingredients (+ salt and pepper)!
Ingredients
  • 1 extra large (or 2 small) spaghetti squash, halved, seeded and scraped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • ½ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400. Rub spaghetti squash with olive oil and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Roast until fork tender--the spaghetti squash should easily come out when scraped with a fork, about 40-60 minutes, depending on size.
  2. To brown the butter melt in a medium pan over medium heat. Once butter is melted add garlic. Whisk constantly. The butter will start to foam first, then develop golden brown specs. Once you see the brown specs, turn off the heat and continue to whisk for an other 30 seconds, until butter is a nice amber color. Place on a cool surface to avoid continuing to cook and burning. The butter can burn very easily.
  3. Once spaghetti squash has finished cooking, remove the inner flesh (the spaghetti-like part) and place in a large bowl. Toss with browned butter (I recommend not adding it all at once--you may not need it all), and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Serve topped with freshly grated parmesan cheese. Leftovers may be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to one week.

By now we’ve talked in detail about my obsession with Italian food. Especially sauce. Pasta I can take or leave, but there must be a good, flavorful sauce.

Healthy, vegan, protein-packed & gluten-free Spicy Meatless Sauce

I am an equal opportunity eater, so generally I just brown up some ground turkey for my meat sauce, but I am always looking for options for my vegetarian and vegan friends. When GardeinTM reached out to me about creating a recipe, I was so excited to try something new. And the verdict? It was absolutely delicious. For vegetarians, and non-vegetarians alike!

Healthy, vegan, protein-packed & gluten-free Spicy Meatless Sauce

I have to admit, I have never been great about doing my research about the impact the food we choose has our environment.  Did you know that if every American ate meatless just once a week it would be equivalent to half a million cars being taken off the roads each year? That’s crazy to me! In addition, it takes approximately 2500 gallons of water to produce 1 lb of beef whereas it takes only 50 gallons of water for a plant-based meal–this is the equivalent water savings if you didn’t shower for 6 months! I know many people worry about getting protein when going meatless, but Gardein offers 12 grams of protein (hence the name: garden + protein!) for every 1/2 cup of their beefless ground for only 80 calories! Ummm, SCORE!

On Maintaining Weight Loss

5 Tips for Maintaining Weight Loss {even if you don't own a scale!}

Maintaining weight loss and healthy habits can be difficult after the high of dropping the weight wears off, but it’s totally achievable and today I’m sharing my 5 healthy tips for maintaining weight loss, even without a scale!

5 Tips for Maintaining Weight Loss {even if you don't own a scale!}

Whew…this is a post I’ve been wanting to put together for a long time. It’s also one where I open up about a whole bunch of feelings–“I’m an actress! I have all of them!“–anyone else have The First Wive’s Club memorized? I watch it about once a month. Anyway, first a little history lesson if you’re new around here.

  • In 2008 I began my weight loss journey. This was actually round 2 for me after dangerously and unhealthily dropping about 50 lbs in high school, then gaining it all back + about 30 more.
  • I started at 230 lbs. About a year in, I had lost 60 lbs and hit a big, huge, annoying plateau. I finally was diagnosed with Hashimotos, and with the combination of figuring out my meds and starting to run, I lost an other 10ish.
  • Now I live anywhere from 155-160ish. I’m embarrassed to admit that, and I know that’s stupid. In fact, I didn’t want to put it in bold. Sometimes it makes me feel like a healthy living hoax because I have this idea that I should weigh less.
  • I never expected this to be my maintenance weight. And I still wish it wasn’t. Like, everyday wish it wasn’t. But this is where I can eat dessert, and not count every single calorie. This is where I can work out hard, eat mostly healthy, drink wine and bourbon, and eat fro yo. I made the (hard) decision that I wanted to feel freedom more than I wanted to hit what I thought was my goal weight.
  • I also threw out my scale. So for my weight, take it with a grain of salt. I don’t get weighed at the doctor, and I don’t weigh myself at home. If my pants start to feel tight, maybe I’ll rethink that, but I have truly never been happier than when I broke up with the scale, and *gasp* I didn’t magically gain 30 lbs when I did it either.
  • This is me. This is where my body lives, and I’m learning to accept that. I’d be lying if I said I was totally thrilled with this, but I can do a lot of things that lots of “skinny” people can’t. I can lift heavy things, and I am running faster than I have ever run in my life. I am always looking to improve my health and fitness, but I accept that this no longer means a number on the scale, and I am so much more interested in seeing a number at a finish line.

Okay, so let’s actually talk about maintaining weight loss because it’s a beast of it’s own. I had a hard freaking time when my weight loss stopped. I am a numbers person, and I had measured my progress for an entire year by seeing the number on the scale drop. This is the moment when so many people give up and gain the weight back. I’ve seen it so many times, and the one thing I know is that I don’t ever want to have to start my journey all over again. I feel like it’s a fear we all have, right? Anyone who has lost weight has the fear of gaining it back. Just like if you’ve experienced a running injury, or lost your job–it instills this fear of it happening again (and again, and again…).

I’ve put together a few tips that have worked for me to maintain my weight loss (even sans scale).

5 Tips for Maintaining Weight Loss {even if you don't own a scale!}

 

Set new goals: For me this meant running goals, and now goals at CrossFit as well. I was so bored with my normal workouts. The scale had stopped. I needed something. I decided to train for my first 5k, then my first half marathon, and now 2 full marathons and a half ironman later, I still have to constantly set new goals for myself so I have something to work towards. This can be a new time goal, a new workout plan all together (that’s how I fell in love with CrossFit), a new lifting goal, or even just upping your workouts from 3x per week to 5. There is seriously nothing better than knowing you succeeded in completing your goal!

Have fun in the kitchen: This little blog has been a life saver for meal boredom. Food is meant to be enjoyed. I am not one of those food = fuel people. We have 5 senses, and each one is meant to be enjoyed. I love to look at beautiful things, listen to music, and eat delicious food, and that’s not something I plan on trying to change. Figuring out healthy ways to enjoy your favorite foods is key. Look for inspiration to keep from getting bored, and challenge yourself to try new things in the kitchen, even if they intimidate you!

Make healthy friends: I am a social butterfly. I love to talk. In fact, my friends at CrossFit are constantly making fun of me for being so chatty. In fact, when I told them I have a friend that talks more than me during workouts, they told me I was never allowed to bring her in! Anyway, I love spending time with friends, and having friends to run and workout with makes me want to do it. Also, having friends that share your values makes it so much easier for dinner parties / going out to eat /staying accountable. Not to mention, some of my favorite people have come from a mutual passion for healthy living.

Find new ways to track your progress: Okay, so this is kind of similar to setting new goals, but I used to literally see the scale drop every single time I stepped on it. It has been a loooong time since life was like that (it was AWESOME!), but I do see progress (almost) every single week at the track. Track workouts are my favorite thing. I get to run with friends, and I can see my improvement so clearly. For example, a few weeks ago I had 3 mile repeats that I completed at 8:49, 8:39, 8:32 and I was thrilled. This week at the track I did 3 mile repeats in 8:17, 8:09, 7:47. Now, I’m not saying I see that much progress every time (this was particularly excited and shocking for me), but I can always look back at previous track workouts and see my progress. This is equally exciting to me as seeing the drop in the scale, and it keeps me motivated to stick to my healthy lifestyle so I can continue to improve. Have you ever tried to improve your fitness while eating like crap? Yeah…it doesn’t work out very well. So whatever it is that you enjoy, find a way to track some progress and celebrate your improvements!

Ditch your old clothes!: Ummm, if your new clothes start getting tight, are you going to drop a bunch of money on a whole new wardrobe, or are you just going to reign in your diet a little? There’s no point in hanging onto clothes from the past “just in case” because just in case isn’t going to happen. You’ve made it this far, you know what to do, there is no going backwards!

What about you? Any tips or advice for keeping it off?
