I can!


I looked back at my old blog posts and totally inspired myself to be the old Johanna from 2012.




 I seemed to have the healthy lifestyle down. The last two weeks I have really made an effort to make better food choices and I tried to make time to walk with Emma. (Ill be honest its been twice.) It's really crazy but I have already lost 8 pounds in just two weeks - and that included Memorial Day weekend where I didn't really make any healthy choices. It's obvious to me that even though losing the amount of weight I want to lose will take a long time, I clearly know the tools it takes to lose weight and frankly its not hard per say it just takes a lot of self motivation and some planning. As I said in my previous post I want to focus on eating things I want my child to eat and focus on teaching her a healthy lifestyle where she can be active and happy.

Today for lunch we had the banana and egg pancakes you've most likely seen all over pinterest. It's super easy. Mash one banana and mix in two eggs.

I had been wanting to try it and I had one lone ripe banana on my counter. 
I got five pancakes out of my mix and fed one to Emma. 






I topped it with 1 tbs of lite syrup 



For under 300 calories it was really good. It tastes more like french toast since its mostly an egg base, but if you love french toast then you'll love these pancakes. Not to mention if you have any allergy or dietary restrictions its gluten and dairy free.

Always doomed to fail...



 I can't stop singing this song! "STORY OF MY LIFE! Always doomed to fail?"

I hope not! BUT I totally fell off the wagon. I got a bad toenail infection and couldn't work out and then I decided that I didn't need to watch what I was eating because I was breastfeeding and I would just wait until I had weaned. Well if you follow me on instagram you know that I had to wear maternity pants the other day. I tried on five outfits and finally just gave up and put them on. I felt like a whale and that day I decided I was done. I hope to start making healthy choices a habit like they used to be. No more crappy food and now that Emma is weaned no more excuses not to work out.

I am not going to just give up because I keep falling down! Time to blog, time to eat right, time to get active. I started to hear my hypocrisy as I was talking to my husband about Emma eating food and not giving her certain things because ewwww. If I don't want my kid to eat it why am I eating it? If I wouldn't give it to her I shouldn't give it to myself. If I want to teach my daughter a healthy lifestyle I have to live it.
