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!!

Scale Day

Morning came to me WAY too early today; thankfully I went to bed a little earlier than normal last night. The scale was kinder to me than I anticipated - weight unchanged from last week. Considering how out of the norm my week was, I'm thankful for this.

After a breakfast of mini pancakes (made with oat flour) topped with reduced fat peanut butter and sliced banana, I headed for the gym. Tuesdays and Wednesdays are always super busy days, so my new plan is to get the gym out of the way first thing on these days. I got in a solid hour of cardio & will do some free weights and core stuff at home tonight.

The rest of the day has been devoted to cooking. I will have several food choices on hand for busy times the rest of the no excuses for hitting a drive-thru or grabbing unhealthy snacks at the store. The fridge is now stocked with premade salads, soups & cooked brown rice. In the cupboard, you will find healthy versions of banana bread & lemon poppyseed muffins. Still have a couple more goodies to make up tonight & about 12 pounds of chicken to cut into meal-size portions.

What kinds of things do you keep on hand?

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my site - it is appreciated and I do feel much better today.
I got a Nissan Xterra - I like trucks rather than cars and if I ever move out of the city again, this one will meet my highway driving needs :)

I am a prepare ahead freak. I have frozen portion sizes of chicken, turkey, roast beef and smoked tuna. I have frozen measured out portions of brown rice, Quinoa as well as lots of veggies. In the morning, I just grab what I want for lunch and away I go.

I keep raw almonds in my purse for emergencies and once in awhile I'll throw in a protein bar but I tend to stay away from them as they aren't always "clean".

Greek Yougurt, almonds, and cut up veggies and fruit. Lately I have been grooving on celery with almond butter
