Slopes and Scones

If I do want to reach my goal weight the same week as Tough Mudder, I gots some work to do this next week!

I’m so close, yet so far.

The iPhone app I use to keep track of my weight is called “Lose It.” When I originally started to lose weight  (see the first negative slope) I did use the app religiously, recording both my calorie intake and exercise. But then you know how it goes next – became obsessive about putting in all of the data into the app, being mad at myself if I had chocolate pudding that put me 120 calories over my daily budget, that sort of thing.

But that sucks. No one wants to do that. (At least I don’t!) So now I just use it to simply record my weight.

The second negative slope started when I began eating clean and running at the end of January 2012. It will be nice to eventually reach that goal line and then plateau out. 🙂

Last night before book club I munched on a healthy dinner that used up the last of the tzatziki sauce. I’m definitely going to buy some more the next time I’m near Trader Joe’s!

I made some vegan chocolate chip oatmeal “scones” to bring a dish to share at book club last night, based off this recipe.

Did you notice I finally got a cooling rack?!

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal “Scones”


  • 1 cup oats, blended into chunky flour
  • 1 cup wholegrain spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 1/4 cup almonds coarsely chopped
  • 1 tbsp ground flax+ 3 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • handful of milk chocolate chips

Follow these directions with the subbed ingredients!

We got the final Tough Mudder map – my friend Mal pointed out we won’t get to do the fire-walking! Booo.

TTYL, I need to memorize this shit…

Do you ever get weight loss iPhone app obsessive? Or very into recording the food you eat? I used to, but realized it’s not worth the pressure to stress. Just eating mindfully usually helps!

  1. If you put your mind to getting to your goal weight I know you can! 🙂 Just keep in mind that you might not see a change on the scale BUT there could be a change in your body. Good luck with all your goals!

    Oh and, those “scones” look SO SO good! 🙂

    • Aw, thanks for the encouragement Shannon! I know – it’s hard to measure the changes in your body just by the scale. Maybe I’ll check my BMI at the gym and and gauge the before and after of that too. Have a good rest of your weekend!

Tell me all the things.
