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!!

The Gym Today

Okay... I have about two minutes to write, so I'd better make the most of it. Otherwise we're gonna be hitting up some random drive-thru and them I'm gonna be all upset over the crap I put into my body. I "love" the hustle & bustle of Wednesdays... really I do...but I can't wait for the summer break already, lol. So, here goes...

I made it to the gym for 2 hrs 20 minutes this morning... after getting practically no sleep, so yeah I'm a little wiped out now. Its gonna take serious caffeine to keep me awake for my drive home tonight... Anyhow... I got in 5 miles on the elliptical, 4 miles on the treadmill & 40 core sets. Perfect numbers based on what I figured out yesterday...

I'll write a longer post when I get home tonight... if I can keep my eyes open long enough, lol. Wait til you see my new motivation to RUN on the treadmill!!! :-)

Oh... I could use some super fast, no cooking required meal ideas... because let me tell ya right now I'm gonna be spending all of my "free" time in that gym for the next eleven days.

I just bunch snacks into food groups to become meals when it gets crazy like that.

string cheese, nuts, jerky on occasion, yogurt, hard boiled egg etc... plus some fruit and some veggies.

these are my staples of on the go meals for myself.

When I don't have time to cook my go-to meals are sandwiches! Or my mom cooks beans and divides them into 1/2 cup serving sizes. I freeze the beans and eat them when I get ready with a 1/2 cup of brown rice. I buy that frozen brown rice that you pop in the microwave for 3 minutes...BAM!

WOOT WOOT!! You rock!!

tomorrow: back handspring - just for you!!

(ok - now I'm lying. I'm pretty sure even TRYING to do a back handspring would put me in a wheelchair and seriously hamper my weight loss for the rest of my life. So please forgive me - no REAL back handspring...)

Fast....I do smoothies a lot. Highly nutritious and I can pop it in a glass (I have one of those freezable mugs) and take it with me to sip in the car while I'm driving somewhere).
