The Diary of Weight Loss Jules
Still doing these kale smoothies! This one has about 3 cups of kale, a handful of blueberries and one strawberry (that’s all I had…lol). Also, I looked through some of my old posts the other day and found one from over a year ago where I was stuck at the same exact weight/size I’m at now (142-143 last I checked, but that was a week ago). I had been stuck there for about 3 months…and it didn’t budge until I started eating more vegetables and juicing. So, looks like I’m on the right track! 😊😊

I’ve been taking walks daily for about 45 min, just to clear my mind of whatever BS I’ve had to deal with during the day. It’s amazing how much a simple walk can really help with stress. I pretty much always come back with ZERO worries….not that it takes away any problems, but they don’t stress me out as much (or at all). It almost seems like too simple of a solution… But it does work. As far as I’m concerned, being happy is a big part of a successful #lifestyle change.  #takeawalk #stress #weightlossjourney #walk

Got this idea somewhere (Pinterest maybe?)… and just made up my own recipe. I think the original used AboutTime whey protein. Anyways, this came out pretty amazing. I think you MIGHT need a little more almond milk (1/2 - 1 tbsp possibly), but it’s pretty much perfect. 

***RECIPE*** 1 cup almond meal…3/4th’s cup vanilla whey protein (I use RelaxSlim’s)… 1/4th tsp powdered stevia… 1/8th tsp of salt….MIX dry ingredients together and then add… 4 tbsp of coconut oil…3 tbsp of unsweetened almond milk…and MIX until dough forms.  Roll into balls, add some semi-sweet chocolate chips…place on parchment paper and stick in the fridge. Grab whenever you need a high-protein snack!

And….a little #flashbackfriday for ya. Been a while since I’ve posted one of these up…and honestly, it’s for somewhat of a stupid reason. Wanna know what it is? The mirrors and lighting in my current home are different than they were in all of my “before” photos and it bugs me. There you have it. πŸ˜‘ Oh, and to answer any potential questions… Before photo was in 2012, I weighed 176 lbs. After is today…and I weigh…I think…140 lbs? And yes, I gained some since my “lowest weight” (thank you stress!). Currently working on that at the moment!

I’ve posted this before ..and NO, that is not ketchup (eww, by the way!). This is called Huevos a la Malagueña…at least how my family in Puerto Rico made it. All it is is garlic-y tomato sauce (just fresh garlic cooked with plain tomato sauce) over fried eggs. Seriously one of my favorite dishes. PS - this dish orginates from SPAIN, as far as I know. Not Puerto Rico…lol (inside joke for those who remember that debate from months back….lol) #huevos #eggs #huevosalamalaguena #food #weightlossjourney

For the last few days, I’ve been having kale shakes nearly every meal…and I have to say, I feel pretty darn good. This one has about 3 cups of kale (without the stem), 5 strawberries and a little stevia to sweeten it up a bit. Surprisingly, these taste pretty good…and I’ve seriously increased my veggie intake by at least 5x or more. The only that has happened that isn’t so great is that I get headaches…but that possibly could have been from a peanut butter binge I had the other day…*shift eyes*.
