How "The Accidental Fat Chick" Hatched...

Welcome to The Accidental Fat Chick's new online home!

During the summer 0f 2008, I woke up one morning with a drive to live a healthy lifestyle. Since then, I've made many changes and lost nearly 50 pounds. Many of my friends and family members have come to me, asking about what I'm doing & how I'm doing it. While I certainly would never claim to be an expert, I'm happy to share what I've learned along the way.

So after careful thought... "The Accidental Fat Chick" has hatched... with the hope of helping at least one person and to be the accountability I need to finish what I started. :)

Thank you for visiting!!

Oops :(

Today was NOT a good example of finishing a week strong (my weeks go Tues-Mon). There was a case of the melting measuring cup in my dishwasher late last night and it proceeded to interfere with my whole day today - or at least that's the excuse I'm gonna go with. I did spend the whole day trying to eradicate the smell of burned/melted plastic from the dishwasher & dishes that were assaulted by the fumes. Really I don't know what was wrong with me today, just really was off course in many ways. Rather than eat real meals, I sorta grazed all day... mostly on healthy things, like the veggie tray... but there was more chocolate than I want to admit involved. I never made it to the gym, which is very abnormal for a Monday; its usually one of my long cardio days.

Scale day is tomorrow and I'm trying to prepare myself mentally for a setback. This past week has been less than ideal, today was like a big punctuation mark on it is all. The bridge picture is so symbolic to me - I know what needs to happen, but so often I fail to make what I do align with what I know needs to be done to succeed.

Things that I think will help me have a more successful week:

  • Having healthy grab 'n go things prepared ahead of time for busy days

  • Scheduling gym time

  • Being more faithful about journaling food

Keeping my fingers crossed for the scale in the morning... but I know I put myself in the position by letting life sidetrack me. The coming week will be better!

Hopefully the scale won't be too bad...

Good luck :)
