This week is HUGE, as I have the opportunity to finish all of my graduate work!  All that stands between me and graduating is a final project, a quiz, and 5 message board posts!  I am so determined to be done by Sunday!! Woo hoo!

It’ll be so great to be done with grad school as my wedding to do list is ever-growing.  Being able to focus just on the wedding is incredibly exciting, especially because it’s just 9 weeks away.  On top of that, Neal and I are prepping for our move, which is just around the corner.

My Diet

A few weeks ago I shared that I was trying to decide whether or not to continue tracking my calories in My Fitness Pal or to return back to the CORE program. Since then I have stopped tracking on My Fitness Pal and feel great. Counting calories is a fantastic way to visually see how what you are putting in your body adds up, but as I have shared, it isn’t what was best for me. I find that if I listen to my body, some days I need more calories and some days I need less.

Ultimately, it is important for you to do what is best for your own life, body, and journey. I have always been honest on Coffee, Cake and Cardio about my quest to lose weight and hope that it helps others who struggle with their weight to find the path that helps them reach their own goal.

Here’s a look at what I’ve been eating over the past week…

Breakfast – Every day I have been having a packet of oatmeal with some raisins and almonds mixed in. With a cup of coffee on the side, it keeps me full until lunch.

Lunch – Each day is different but I usually bring in a salad with some sort of protein. Yesterday I had a salad with grilled chicken and a goat cheese round. Today I am having a sweet potato and a can of vegetable soup.

Dinner – Again, dinner is different most days. I usually eat some form of carbohydrates with dinner but it varies day-to-day. Last night I had a sweet potato, side salad, and a turkey corn dog. Tonight I’m planning to have a big salad with some grilled chicken.

Tomorrow I’ll be posting my May goals and would love to hear about your goals moving forward.  I hope each one of you has a fantastic Tuesday!  Happy goal setting!

    So very exciting.

    I’m moving away from logging food. It is way too stressful. I want to read the book intuitive eating, I just haven’t purchased from amazon yet.

    I also know what I should be eating, I know what good portions are and I know how crappy I feel when I overeat. I also know how I eat more when I don’t give into my cravings. I NEED to lose 10 pounds as I feel better in my clothing when I am 10 pounds lighter. I’m also at the top of my weight range for my frame and with impending hormonal changes to come in the future it will only get harder to keep a healthy weight if I don’t change habits now.

    I want to workout 4 to 5 days a week. But with homeschooling and raising two boys it can be a challenge. I just know I need to change and I need to workout and eat what I want in moderation but I need to understand moderation doesn’t necessarily mean once a week ;-)

    I also need to ultimately understand and believe that God made me just as I am. So the scale might not be ideally what I want but it is what God has planned for me.

    I am so excited to see what your wedding pics look like. I just wish you weren’t moving to MD…I’m a northern VA native so I’m a little partial :-)

      Hey Kelly! Thank you so much for sharing about your goals and your experience. You can totally do this! I really appreciate what you said about God, as I agree that we need to love the body that God has given us. If your goal is to lose 10 pounds, you can definitely do it, just be patient with yourself. I can only imagine how hard it is to homeschool, raise two children, take care of a home, and take care of yourself. I’ll definitely need tips from you when I start to have kids.

      Thank you for reading Coffee, Cake and Cardio!

    It’s so great that you’re seeing results! Hopefully the good feelings that come with losing weight spill into other aspects of your life! You have so much going on, its hard to imagine staying sane through it all!

    That’s so cool that you are seeing the changes in your body- what a great feeling!
    Good for you for deciding to listen to your body rather than stressing about tracking everything. I feel a lot less stressed since I stopped… but I’m still stressed about OTHER things and eating a bit mindlessly. It will all balance out soon. :)
    Keep up the good work, love!
