Motivation Monday

Motiviation is key in weight loss and to stay motivated I have to change things up. Especially my diet. 
I finally bought some quinoa and I'm not all that impressed...
And I thought to myself I would rather just eat brown rice and when I googled the facts this is what I found:
Quinoa is a little higher in carbs, protein and fiber but really they are the same thing. I actually need to compare price as well. I'm going to try a couple recipes I found off of pinterest.

I tried this salad first and it wasn't so impressive to me. Maybe I need to have it set overnight so the flavor soaks into the quinoa.

I absolutely love pumpkin! Hopefully this will taste better than the salad.

This one looks scrumptious but it calls for too many ingredients.

Now as far as motivation goes I have 2 more days to buck up for my weigh in on Wednesday
Saturday I did bad by eating half a bag of kettle corn. I love kettle corn! Its a good bad situation.
Bad that I bought and ate half the bag!!! But good that I threw the bag away. I did allow myself to buy it because it was saturday and I allow myself to indulge in one thing on Saturdays and I decided that is what it was going to be. And I'm so happy I had the strength to just throw the whole bag out! And based on the nutrition facts half the bag was 300 calories. Not too bad right?

Ok so this is going to be my reward when I reach a 10lb loss.  So I'm just going to throw the # out there.
I will reach my goal when I reach 140.

My last weigh in was 147 so I have 7 pounds to go which seems so far away for me. That is nearly 2 months away if I have no slip ups.  But these are some really nice jeans from Express and I really need some new jeans bad. I just don't want to buy them yet if I can actually get a smaller size :)  So i'm going to do everything I can to lose 1.5lbs every week. I think it can be done!!

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
