Back in the Swing of Things

Around this time last year, I looked at myself in the mirror and decided that it was time to lose some weight. I am a petite 5 feet and 3 inches, and so even a few additional pounds can be visible on my frame. In addition, I am athletically built, and the muscle had begun to deplete, giving me even more reason to turn things back around.

You all were there as I documented the many months on Weight Watchers and hitting the pavement running here on Buckhead Betty. It took time, but I lost 15, and have since gained back 5 as I have "maintained" -- aka ate and drank however I pleased haha.

January is here again, and for many people, this is a month of weight-loss resolutions. After my success last year, I am committing myself again for this winter and early spring to lose a little bit more. I have officially joined Weight Watchers (instead of doing it unofficially like before) and am really excited about their brand-new plan. I am also excited to start back up with spin class and running.

To start off right, this weekend has been all about restocking the pantry, fridge and freezer with healthy options. While I prepped for the week, I thought about all of my go-to healthy recipes. I thought it might be fun to recap them here for you, too, just in case you are looking for a diet overhaul of any kind.
Good luck with your food and health resolutions this year! How are you hoping to change your lifestyle?
