5 or 6 frozen strawberries
1/2 to 3/4 cup of frozen blueberries


MMMMMmmmmmmm so good. Never thought about using yogurt. Something I might wanna try, that souned good.


Hoping my horses will love my new weight in the next year.
Are you using milk insted of yogurt? The think of it is, is that yogurt has the same amount of calories but it has all the live bacteria in it. Plus it gives the smoothie a little extra flavor. Also, you should try a peach! I made one this morning with a white peach and it was sooo good! I had to get used to smoothies as a snack because textures really bother me. Onces I found a mixture that I actually liked the texture I stuck to it.

Soo..I've decided that (because I have an ego), I need to lose the baby fat I've been hanging onto to look better. I'm sure that sounds horrible and it's the wrong way to go about it, but I love looking better than everyone else, soo..That's my motivation, lol. I don't feel horrible about my weight, but I also want to show off what I got without showing off the muffin top and huge thighs :p

Soo, I'm changing how I eat and I'm going to start actually exercising instead of assuming that just riding will keep me in shape(:

I haven't read the whole thread yet to get all the tips, but I plan to make a diet plan with foods that'll keep me hydrated and boost my (godforsakingly) slow metabolism.

I'll be getting my weight and measurements today and keeping a notebook (:

Riding can keep you in very good shape!!! Eat small but frequently. ( I was blown away at how well this actually worked, should have listened sooner I reackon). Eat your protiens first (they are filling). Make sure breakfast is very high in protien and low in carbs. Save your carbs for after heavier workouts to help refuel your body. You body needs a certain amount of protiens to fat to carbs. If you deny your body any of the three you body will start storing insted of burning.

Once you get a good day to day routine. Then horseback riding will really help shed the pounds.

I am actually scheduled to be induced for labor on Aug 29th (hopefully he comes early) and then I have to have gallbladder surgery but hopefully after all that and I get a clear from the doctor and surgeon I am going to start doing some heavy training with a few of my horses just so I can use that as a workout program.

Even so much as grooming your horse burns a good amount of caloried. Riding at a trot/canter or doing obstacles burns and insane amount.

"An object at rest will remain at rest, An object in motion will remain in motion" I think that's how that goes. LoL

So keep moving everybody!!! Every little bit counts!!!

Hey beckers! I don't really have any suggestions except the obvious lol. Smaller, healthier meals, limit eating out and watch portions. And excercise hehe. I'm sure other people will be more helpful xD oh and coming here to check in is a good way to hold yourself accountable!

I'm finally on some antibiotics and starting to feel a wee bit better. Back on the healthy eating wagon. (ugh, lol) Now I just have to force myself to go and get groceries today or tomorrow. I hate going by myself so I usually try to go with the bf but by the time we have a night off together I'm already days into eating fast food from lack of anything at home to make. I'm going to try super hard to go there by myself before work. I don't like going there alone (not a great part of town) but I just gotta do it.

You'll get that on this thread!

What do you need help with? Meal plans? Exercise? What?

Here's a tip for getting motivated. Move. Get up and walk for 5 minutes. It's not so long, just five minutes. Once 5 minutes is up, go a bit longer. Each time, go a bit longer. Then look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself that you are determined, you are smart, and you are going to do this every day because you deserve it!

Take the stairs instead of the elevator.

Park at the end of the parking lot and walk a bit further.

You'll feel so much better, you'll want to do more!
