I have done the MFF 21 Day Challenge a total of 3 times over the last 4 years. Every time I lose an average of 5-7 pounds over the 21 days. This year I lost 5 pounds easy. (I don't believe in pills, or drops, or shots, or fad diets...I believe in eating real food. If you eat the right food, in the right amounts...you lose weight.)
Why I did it this year:
My motivation this year was to get back on track and to stop eating so much dang sugar!
I am really good at eating healthy Monday – Thursday, but when Friday roles around, I think I “deserve” every cookie, glass of wine, and breakfast taco that comes my way. I wanted help snapping out of this game I play with myself!!
Favorite part of MFF:
It is so easy. For 3 weeks I don’t have to worry about meal planning, grocery shopping etc.
I reminds me...I CAN go out with friends and drink water instead of wine. I CAN go to a football watching party and not snack on chips and dip. I CAN get through a day without candy! (I actually never craved sugar while on this plan...it is crazy that if you eat the right food...cravings go away! )
I am in love with the Lettuce Wraps and ALL of the breakfasts.
I know that MFF is an investment, and here is how I look at it. Look at all the money you spend over a 3 week period on food, snacks, drinks, restaurants, coffee, etc. MFF is still probably going to cost more, but does it cost THAT much more? Maybe the $$ you spend is a good motivator to stay on the program…it is for me!
Well I fell a heck of a lot better than I did on December 31st. I am down a few pounds, and it helped me get in the grove to lose weight and make good healthy decisions in 2015!
One of the reasons I love the My Fit Foods 21 Day Program is helps me get rid of bad habits. For the most part I eat healthy, but if something bad happens then my mind IMMEDIATELY goes to…I need a cookie or wine.
For example, today something happened that set me off. I am a girl, it happens. Someone upset me, I overreacted, I might have cried a little…and I thought, “I DESERVE a glass of wine or a cookie...This MFF program can just wait." I was 100% set on breaking all my goals (3 days in) because of how someone made me feel.
Then I walked into MFF to pick up my next round of food. I talked to some of the guys there about my goals as they rang up my food. KC the nutritionist talked to me about some of the new meals (mac and cheese), and importance of taking all my vitamins. As I left I thought, all these people want to see me succeed! I can’t let them down!
It was hard, but I passed up temptation, and came home to find my planned dinner was CHICKEN NUGGETS!! (yes MFF has a healthy version of chicken nuggets…and they are SO good.)
Sometimes in order to succeed we need to not only commit personally, but to also commit in front of others, and accept help. There are so many excuses every day to not eat healthy. ASK for HELP! That is just one of 1,001 reasons I love MFF!
Because I am single I have been sleeping on an air mattress for the past 3 weeks.
I am currently in the middle of a move and in the meantine…because I don’t have a boyfriend…I am sleeping on my friend's air mattress. Don’t get me wrong. It is a lovely air mattress. The best Walmart has, BUT if I had a boyfriend I would be sleeping comfortably in his bed.
Instead I am on a bed that sounds like I am letting out a big fart everytime I flip over.
A bed that even my dog gets on and them immediately goes, "oh hell no, I choose the floor."
A bed that tells me I need to loose weight as it slowly deflates a little each night. I started at 8 inches from the floor…now I am at about 2.
I need to find a man to save me from the air mattress.
Did you know that Amy Poehler and her best friend Meredith Walker run a website/movement for young girls? Smart Girls says, "change the world by being yourself." And...it gets better, Smart Girls is based right here in Austin, TX!

You know me...I love a good broadway show and the upcoming season for Broadway in Austin is so great. So many shows I have never seen including Once, Evita, Mama Mia, and Jersey Boys. The boys from Jersey Boys came in to chat about their popular show.
Basically get ready for some AMAZING shows at Bass Concert Hall 2014 - 2015!!! Get tickets at www.broadwayinaustin.com
Booker, Alex & Sara/ MIX Morning Show found out there are A LOT of MIX Friends who 'Spoon' w/ their dogs, just like Sara & Jet. Booker didn't believed it until the photos came pouring in on the MIX Facebook page. Sara created a 'Dog Spooning' masterpiece w/ lots of cute cuddly help from many MIX Facebook Friends. Booker won't be able to listen to John Legend's 'All Of Me' the same again... Not without thinking about all this cuteness!

St Paul and the Broken Bones
âYou don't have to know a single song from the album to have fun watching this band. I immediately bought their album after I saw them live. I love the lead singers voice.
PS...They are coming back in April for the Old Settlers Music Festival.
Birds of Tokyo
AThis group sells out stadiums in Australia. I had listened to their song 'Lanterns' prior to seeing them at SXSW...but seeing them live made all the difference. âListen to the song a few times...it becomes addicting.
Jack Antonoff of Fun has a new project called Bleachers. Maybe it is because I love the band Fun...or maybe it is because I love Jack's girlfriend (Girls creator Lena Dunham) but I dig this band.
I read about this band from Peter Blackstock at the Statesman. This particular video is from 2012, but oh so good.
A nice, cute boy sent me this video last spring and I kind of fell in love with Vance Joy. Great summer song and super cool music video.
A few other bands I didn't get to see, but heard a lot about.
