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!!

Picking Battles

It would be an understatement to say I woke up
feeling like crapola today, pretty sure it has some-
thing to do with forgetting to take my "anti-baby"
pill with milk last night. Silly mistake on my part
but its done a fine job of messing with my entire

Its one of those days where I feel like I have to pick my battles carefully because I'm not going to win them all. That said, I've conceded defeat and will be picking up dinner at McDonalds on the way to kids group tonight... I simply did not have the energy to stand in the kitchen preparing food to pack along. However, I did manage to have a healthy breakfast, lunch and snack... so its not as bad as it could be. I even drug my butt to the gym for a solid 30 minutes on the bike, not my usual intensity level & not nearly as long as I wanted to spend, but I figured something was better than nothing & it keeps me in the habit of going.

When something' s gotta give, which sacrifice do you think is easier to overcome - food or exercise?

exercise is easier to overcome because you can just give up food.. but it's soooo hard to work off excess calories that you eat... unfortunately this doesn't help your cause tho :(

i don't know about which is easier to overcome, but i can stick to my diet plan much easier than i can finding energy/time to work out on those "blah" days. i personally think that is an easier sacrifice - taking a day off from working out but still eating "well"

Normally I would agree its better to stick with healthy eating & skip excercise when something's gotta give. But, I skipped the gym yesterday and missing two days in a row is a HUGE thing for me to overcome... pretty soon two days becomes a week. Hopefully the fact that the house is full of healthy foods will make it easy to get right back to business as usual in the morning...
