How I Am Restarting Trim Healthy Mama in 2016

How I am Restarting Trim Healthy Mama in 2016

Happy New Year!!

I like so many other mama’s need to restart my Trim Healthy Mama journey.

I’d like to apologize for being so quiet the last couple months but family commitments interfered with my ability to post and share with you.

(and stay on plan …. can you relate?)

 

Disclosure Statement

One thing I realized during my short break is that I missed writing here as well as being able to post helpful tips and tools for everyone. I fell off the wagon for a while and am working daily on getting back on track with my meal timing as well as making the right choices… watching my crossovers and just being on plan 100% of the time. I’ve gained back the original 55 pounds that I lost, because honestly

I wasn’t paying attention and the bad habits returned…

Only having coffee for breakfast

Not eating every 3 hours

Enjoying too many crossovers

Not drinking my sippers

Indulging in off plan foods

Not getting the proper amount of rest

Not exercising at all

 

Back on Plan for a New Year and a New ME!!

Some of the ways that I’m Restarting My Trim Healthy Mama Journey for the New Year are:

 

Using a Trim Healthy Binder

I made these Binder dividers to use.

These Journaling pages

 

Planning my Meals at least 2 weeks in advance with this Menu Planner

Meal Plan Pink

 

Using the ingredients we have on hand

 

The bonus to me restarting Trim Healthy Mama this way is that I get to share some cool printables as well as menu plans and show you how I’m doing it. Especially with recipes like this Sunrise Surprise.A citrus sunrise surprise smoothie that is both low carb and low fat. This citrus smoothie wakes your senses and packs a full load of protein and other nutrients into your morning.

 

I also belong to a THM Chapter by Chapter Study Group on Facebook and would encourage you to join in if you are confused or want to study the Trim Healthy Mama books (Old and New) Chapter by Chapter with some pretty awesome people.

You can find that group Here.

    Regained every pound I lost, plus 20! I was skinnier than in my teens. I allowed too many cheats cause I didn’t have to worry about my weight anymore. Before I knew it, I was just totally off plan. I could cry! IDK how I’ll ever lose it again:(

    I’m so encouraged by your honesty. I have regained 65 pounds from another journey and have yet to commit to THM for fear I’ll repeat the same pattern. It’s nice to know that others keep trying, too.

      I won’t give up… This is the only way I’ve been able to loose since going through menopause… and the only way I’ve been able to control my blood sugar with any regularity… it works and it is sustainable… We keep on keeping on

    You mean I’m not the only one? So thankful to find this post. Lost 50 and have regained 30 and NOTHING fits, and I feel like such a failure. I have made a lot of the same mistakes. I want to do better and find a way – in the midst of feeding my picky, junk-loving family – to still take care of myself.

    Thank you Judy! I’m restarting again today (I’ve lost count how many times I’ve said this!) but your printables are so pretty and will help me to get organized!!! I just need to be better about planning and preparing. I’m such a Drive Thru Sue that it’s so hard – but I’ve done it before – I can do it again! Thanks again!

    I printed everything today. Beautiful. Do you think you could add a matching cover page to slip in the front of a binder?
