My VSG Life: 11/22/2017 Trader Joes and Jackfruit.

Trader Joes Grocery Haul This morning I went shopping with my husband at Trader Joes. It’s one of my favorite stores. I love the atmosphere and they have some pretty delectable products. Two of my favorites are the veggie dumplings and the tomato basil hummus. Lip smacking good! So, I was sure to grab one of each.   I also got some frozen fruit for my daily fruit and veggie shakes, salsa, shrimp, jackfruit, trail mix, dried bananas, dried cranberries, guacamole, honey, barbeque sauce, sea salted kettle chips, blue corn chips, chickenless strips and a few other things.

My VSG Life: 11/21/2017

Welcome to another day of my journey to fabulous¬†fitness and wonderful weight loss. My goal is to hit 200 lbs by June of 2018. It’s going to be tough but I know I can do it.

My VSG Life: Home Cooked Meals.

I’m cooking at home more because I can control what goes in my food. Knowing what’s in your food is a must when trying to lose weight. When I cook for myself I am in control of how much fat and sugar I’m eating. I’m also eating less meat since my aim is to be vegan or vegetarian (no eggs, dairy, or meat). Some of my meals are completely meat and seafood free. I can opt to use veggie stock instead of a meat based broth or chicken substitute instead of chicken breast. Plus I really enjoy my own...

Build Yourself Up With Uplifting Associations.

Could You Be Sabotaging Your Efforts? You could be studying great books, viewing informative videos and listening to audios that help expand your mind. You could even enroll in a variety of self-improvement and self-development courses or hire mentors who push you towards becoming your greatest version. These things are all great and will help push you closer to becoming your greatest version but if you’re not being careful of who you choose to closely associate with you could find yourself running in circles.
