Girl’s Night 2.0

Tonight was our first monthly Girl’s Night 2.0: Get Hethy. As I stated in my last post I am back on Weight Watchers. I am doing really well so far (down 7lbs.). My mom is on it and my friend Beck is on it. In the past we would have girl’s nights every few months but they started to fall by the wayside. So in the new year I decided that I would set a monthly girl’s night but that the theme would be get healthy, as three of us are on Weight Watchers and our other friends just want to be healthy. We also decided that we would cook the healthy meal together. In my opniin there is nothing that brings people closer than the kitchen! Well tonight was the first one, though 2 of us couldn’t make it, but the meal was delicious. We made Lemon Chicken Spaghetti Squash. I recipe I saw on Facebook through a Buzzfeed video. Such a great choice. It was easy to make, so tasty and filling too!

The best part about doing this is we all get to see each other once a month, we get to support each other in our healthy living journey and we can de-stress. And for me, I get to cook which is my most favorite thing in the world. 

The finished product! It is just Spaghetti Squash, chicken, cherry tomatoes, onion, garlic, chicken broth, juice of 1 lemon and Kale (the recipe calls for spinach but I don’t like cooked spinach.) 

And of course we cannot forget the most important thing! Though we only opened the Skinny Girl!

Cannot wait for our February Girl’s Night! Now to come up with what to cook!!!!


Starting the Journey

I have taken the plunge… AGAIN! I have signed up for Weight Watchers for the 4th time in my life. Now, I don’t say it like this because it didn’t work. It worked the first I joined. I was in the program for 3 years, I lost 36 pounds as kept it off. And this was before apps and social media. I left the country for a while and went off the program. Over the years my weight has fluctuated and I have tried so many different diet fads and ideas, even joining weight watchers again and again. None of it worked. But the fault was not with the different fads or programs I tried, the fault was entirely mine. I was not mentally or emotionally present to work to lose the weight and get healthy. It was almost as if I thought it should just fall off because I wanted it to. 

My daughter is now 2 and she is a little ball of energy. Much like I was as a kid. Since I am overweight I do not have the energy to keep up with her and that breaks my heart! She is only going to be little for a short time and I want to savor ever moment of it. So I am committing here and now. I will commit to my journey. My journey to get heathy, my journey to get healthy for my husband, for my daughter, most of all for myself. Follow me on my journey…
