Long Overdue Results from My 6-Week Challenge.

Can you believe I didn’t eat any chocolate or wine for six weeks straight?! That is ludicrous. I can’t believe nor understand people who don’t eat chocolate. Six weeks is basically one whole entire month and a good two weeks of no processed sugars or anything!

I’m so proud of myself for being disciplined and having self-control and not giving into anything bad for me.

The final weigh-in was on a Tuesday, a couple of weeks ago (sorry for the delayed post I got busy with two new jobs lol) and well, I was surprised by my results. I knew going in that I wouldn’t lose a drastic 20lbs in six weeks… BUT! I did lose half that.

My Breakfast Routine + My Essential Vitamins

Hi Katherine,

Thought I’d share some of my quick and easy breakfast options that are simple to make and super healthy; along with some daily essential vitamins I take every morning.

I literally just started taking these four weeks ago, when I started my 6-weeks-challenge and I have been consistently doing it ever since. Also, my breakfast routines have been pretty consistent (interchanging between these 3-4 breakfast options) and it’s kept me happy and not hungry! So far, so good!

Hope you and others can use this guide for breakfasts. It’s really easy, even I could do it. So, if I can do it, so can you! Stay happy, stay healthy and stay true to your heart!

Turning Over A New Leaf

Dear Katherine,

I’m going to be starting on this new Food+Fitness (F+F) journey and I wanted to document it here. I want to share with you my struggles, my meals, things I make and do so that I have an outlet to write it out and see the changes I’m making not just in the kitchen, but in my life – from my workouts to scheduling in the time to write, even if it is for only 10-20 minutes a day. I’m setting a timer now as we speak and it took me only 15 minutes to write all this up to here, so far anyway lol. 

I was very tentative about it at first, but when we last communicated about Plate by State with the possibility that it might disappear, I couldn’t help but feel sad. *insert crying emoji here* I wanted to do something more with it besides recipes and I think I just had to tell myself to face my fears and jump into really tackling my lifestyle and food choices and document what I’m doing (actually doing) in my life and share it with you (and whoever else reads this).

In sickness and in health

Dear Katherine,

I know. It’s been a while (around six months to be exact) since we last wrote a letter or recipe to each other. I’ve been sick and wanted to share my thoughts & feelings. So here they are. Sorry it’s so long! Thanks for bearing with me. Love always, Anne
