Nutrition...

Is a word I really don’t use much or really have ever used. 
Other word (s) not in Lindsey's dictionary:
 
Healthy
Portion Control
Fitness
 
Now, over the span of the last decade, I have been on diets and exercised and ate things that were good, but my basis on living and eating were not and never have been towards being healthy.  Being on Weight Watchers has given me another perspective on these terms.  Being healthy is important!!  Having the right nutrition is important.  I have a long way to go, but I feel that I am learning these things.
When I first started Weight Watchers, my lunch consisted of 100-calorie snacks and WW cookies and WW Smart Ones frozen dinners.  While those things are ok, they are not nutritional sound. 
My lunch now consists of stings cheese, yogurt, fiber bar, chicken, grapes and a salad.  For me this is like, WOW!  I am awesome!  I really could do this healthy thing!!
Why did it seem so hard before?
 
 
My motivation at this point is to get into a pair of pants.
This may not seem like a big deal to some, but to me it is.  I bought this pair of size 16 pants.
Yes people… I just told you that I CANNOT fit into 16 pants! Maybe someday I will tell you my weight. RIGHT! :-)
They are currently hanging on my wall. They are nothing special, just a pair of pants.  To me though, they are something I am working towards.  I would like to fit into these by February 20th.  I hope that with the combination of the gym 5 times a week and my “healthy” food choices, I can do this.

What's in my Purse? - Video

Hi Friends!

I just posted my first video on YouTube! I am so excited! I have watched YouTube videos for years and have always wanted to make my own. I finally got the courage to create one!

I really enjoy watching "What's in My Purse?" videos, so I thought this was fitting for my first.

Juice of the Day - Day 5

Today is Day 5.

Yesterday was difficult for me. I'd been invited to go to a nice restaurant for a birthday party with some co-workers, but since I'm juicing, I wouldn't be able to eat anything. This presented a real challenge.

All day I debated canceling, both because of the temptation to compromise and give in, and the misery of watching other people get to eat. Around the time I was supposed to be getting ready, I came across Dr. Oz's "Are You A Food Addict?" episode online. He asked five questions to help determine if you're addicted to food, one of which was "is food controlling your social life?"

This really took me by surprise. At that moment, I decided I was not going to let this overpower me. I ended up going and had a blast! I'm so glad that I chose to take control over my addiction.

Fortunately, today was a much better day for me. I felt good and full of energy. 

I tried this juice recipe today and it tasted great! It's light and re…
