Mamavation Monday 05/06/13
It is May and it is going to be an awesome month. It is a little challenging for me, because usually with all the celebrations for mother’s day I get a little nostalgic and home sick. And you probably already know I tend to eat when I am sad. So what is my plan? I am going to have lots of healthy snacks available. Baby carrots are going to be my best friend this month!
I have not seen the scale move in two weeks. It is a good thing and a bad thing. It is good that I have not gained weight. But it is bad that I have not lost weight. Yes, my clothes fit me loose, so I am assuming that I might have some water retention.
I have to say I am really learning things. I was at a 5 de Mayo party and I had some tacos, but I only had the meat. No tortillas. It was not as hard as I thought. I guess I am learning to eat. It is the small changes that count.
The air quality has not been the best. We had some wildfires, so walking outside has not been an option. I had been on the elliptical. I do not like it as much, but it helps me stay active.
This week I am going to focus and drink more water and continue with my walks (or elliptical if the air is still bad)
Mother’s day is coming up next week and I want to plan a menu. What type of healthy sweets do you think I should make?

I eat a lot of tropical fruits. Tortillas get me every time but good job staying away from them.
Our family went corn-free - and now I can't even stand the taste of tortillas! I eat taco meat on salad and with onions :) Healthy sweets? Well, you can search for coconut flour recipes. Or, check out Bob's Red Mill Chocolate flour - it's made from garbanzo beans, WAY healthier than wheat, and the brownies are to die for! Check caloric intake though, and sub where you can (honey or xylitol instead of sugar, nondairy if you can manage).

my suggestions would be an amazing fruit salad maybe with some fresh whipped cream on top. A healthy treat with a little something extra for the holiday but not too bad
