Just Mom

I could give you a handful of reasons why all the things I loved doing went away.  I lost love and respect for myself. I gained weight, I stopped trying, I gave up. Then some how my babies grew up and suddenly I am left in this life raising full on actual humans.  That thought is seriously scary.

I could tell you all the sob stories or the great stories or just basically blame blogger for not supporting an apple platform on my phone and we can leave it at that. But I will say we do have some amazingly cute little men.

I could run you down on "what the AF" is going on in our lives or I can get real and say fitmom turned "just Mom" and all I really do is survive and do whatever I can to raise them differently than I was.  To make them better than me, to become parents different than I had, to never give them complexes (especially about food), to give them the drive their Dad has, and to wish they had someone in their lives special like my Grammy was to me.

I guess my actual hope now is to be honest with the day to day and maybe open up some of the layers for myself. No sugar coating and maybe some how try to learn or teach with the expression of words I once had.  To somehow find where I fit in now.

I have four men living in my home I couldn't me more proud of, but somehow I can't come to find one compliment for myself these days.  Sometimes I think that's okay, because my job is them, but I know that for them I AM more than that.

Getting My Healthy Back

So it's no secret that I fell off the wagon.  This is a post I never wanted to write, but here I am admitting it and owning it.

Pizza and wine became less of a treat and more of a normal thing.  The gym and I were not longer friends and I found every excuse in the book to not go.  You would think it would have been delightful well it wasn't it was horrible, I felt awful about myself, and my clothes didn't fit, but each day I made yet another excuse.

Rewind to a month ago, Valentine's Day.  My better half was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.  Our worlds were crushed, but at this point we knew shit had to get done.  For him, for me, for the boys!  So thus began our new journey TOGETHER.

Looking back this is always something I wanted, to be healthy together.  To crush goals together.  Now don't get me wrong this is NOT the way I wanted it to happen for him to get sick, but now we have NO excuses AT ALL.  It is all about being healthy now.

Like I said, it has been a month.  He is down 19 pounds and currently on one pill of medication and thankfully his sugars are fully under control.  He has been accountable to everything he eats, eating low carb, walking on his lunch break, coaching the boys baseball teams, and going to the gym.  That man has always made me proud, but I am beyond proud right now yet again.

So... where does that leave me?  BACK AT IT!  I am doing 4 workouts a week, falling back in love with the gym, being accountable to everything I eat, taking my Advocare supplements and doing everything in my power to support him.

I have a long long long way to go to get back to when I was the best shape of my life, but that's ok because I am trying.  Just trying makes me feel better.  Pushing myself makes me proud, saying no to temptations makes me feel strong.  Planning my meals and finishing a workout makes me feel confident.  Explaining to the boys about sugar and calories and being active makes my heart full.

So there you have it.  I may no longer be "fitmamato3" but I am back and working on me for them, all of them... for us.

Ground Chicken Ginger Miso Soup

Here I am!  I have had a little too much fun food wise since Aprilish.  I went from my lowest weight to one of my highest.  No no no no no not my 202 lbs no no no BUT a well um 14 pound jump from my very lowest weight from 16 months ago.  In all fairness I didn't like my lowest weight.  Who wants to wear a size 2 anyways and live at the gym and next eat a cookie with your kids?  NOT ME!

However I am about 7 pounds above my goal goal maintain weight and I HATE IT.  So here I am back at it in an attempt to fit perfectly back into my size 4/6 and feel GOOD.  That's the most important part.  Not the number on the scale but how I feel in my clothes, in pictures, in my attitude, and most of all I want to feel healthy and stop eating take out pizza once a week.

I started Monday (after Sunday night pizza of course) I am on day 3 today and only 1 pound down which is discouraging.  I have been working out every day and eating as clean as possible and limiting carbs, fat, and sugar.  

I am on a mission because we are taking a family vacay to our GORGEOUS time share in Mazatlan in just a couple weeks.  In hindsight I wish I had booked it in February so I would have had all month to get the 7ish pounds off because it's VERY doubtful I can do that in two weeks.  #CRAP

So with all that being said here is a recipe I came up with the other day.

1/2 lb. ground chicken breast crumbled and cooked
1 container of Trader Joe's Miso Ginger Broth (regular would work ok but this has more flavor)
1 medium zucchini
8 mushrooms sliced
1/4 cup of cilantro
2 green onions
1/4 of a white onion sliced however you prefer
1 inch of fresh ginger minced
2 celery ribs
3 tbsp low sodium soy
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
4 dashes of sesame oil
4 dashes of asian hot oil

Mix all together and bring to a low boil then simmer for 30 minutes

I threw this together with what I have next time I want to add cabbage and bok choy

This pot is two servings I divided it evenly into two large bowls.  It's about 3 cups in total for serving and SOOOOOOooooooo filling for that amount of calories.

Top with additional cilantro and green onions if you wish and if you are anything like me... sirracha!

Clean Albondigas

Oh white girl white girl white girl.  I'm pretty sure my newest love is re-vamping recipes.  I woke up from a dream about Albondigas (hussshhhh a few nights ago it was a super carne asada burrito covered in an amazing sauce... yes I often dream about he food I can't have).

What is it you might ask?  Small meatballs prepared in a Mexican, Spanish, or South American way in a SOUP.

I knew I had to revamp my favorite recipe and it turned out great.
  • 1 egg white beaten
  • 1 lb. extra lean ground beef or turkey
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 12 cup cooked brown rice
  • 12 cup cilantro chopped
  • 14 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 6 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 12 cup onion, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, cut in chunks
  • 1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes (low sodium)
  • 12 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 12 cup cilantro
  • 1 large zucchini, sliced

Make the meatballs first: Combine everything and mix thoroughly.

Form meatballs and roll between your palms.  It should make about 20 meatballs, set them aside.

In a large pot combine chicken broth, onion, celery, tomatoes and their liquid, cumin, oregano and cilantro leaves.

Bring to broil, and reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Drop meatballs in the soup (Make sure the soup is slightly boiling, the meatballs need to be cooked quickly).

Return to simmer and cook another 10 minutes.

Add zucchini and cook 10 minutes.

Serve with hot sauce.. if you are ME!
Note: If the pound makes 20 meatballs they are a little under 1 ounce of meat each
