So first off: I’m excited to report that today is day 18 that I’ve logged my food in a row!! I’ve been logging my food on my LoseIt! app and trying to get in any exercise I can. Slow but I’m sticking with it! I’m not below my calorie goal/eating in line my macros everyday but I TRY and that’s what counts!
I’m pumped to keep up with it through the holidays and know that I’ll see results! I’m already down a total of 35lbs! It’s slow but it’s healthy and it works! It’s a lifestyle change 💪
For the meal prep finds this week:
The spaghetti squash was amazing. Low carb and delicious. My one squash made 6.5 2/3c servings and the nutrition was good:
Also: the squash heats up great too. Essentially I’m definitely making spaghetti squash like all the time. The cheddar cream sauce was also super clutch. 🥰 Get. In. My. Belly.
The lasagna bake was also super yummy. Very cheesy but good with a small serving of pasta (we use these for quick pasta adds to dinner – they’re new for us but I love the convenience). Sometimes just half a cup of pasta is all you need and, though it is adding carbs, it’s not a whole cup worth. The lasagna bake was also good as a sandwich.
Here’s the lasagna bake nutrition per serving:
As far as crafting goes…
My newest fancy is acrylic pouring. It is so much fun and I’ve made 7 paintings so far. Two are totally done and the others I’m still working on. There are so many cool techniques and methods to use so each time I try something different or new. I’ve used alcohol, a torch, silicone, different top coats/sealants, different pouring mediums, different pouring methods, and even different surfaces. There’s so many options and it’s a lot of fun exploring.
I want to take a video of some of my pours and maybe I will if I ever get a cheap tripod for my phone. Right now it’s too hard to position my phone right to record what I’m doing. For now pictures will have to do!
Here are a few I’ve made so far. Next up I want to try coasters, cutting boards, serving dishes, and more!
What color combos should I try next?!
But how’s that time management thing going?
I’m loving that I set aside the time to craft. And then, during that time, I actually craft. Owning my free time has been freeing. I decide what to do with my time and I love reaping the rewards! I feel like I get more done (and who doesn’t like feeling productive). Today we super cleaned the house (like the whole house), went through all of Hannah’s toys to sort out stuff to donate/pack up, dropped stuff off at Goodwill, and I got to work on some paintings.
All in all = #winning
