Shrink to Life!

Standard

It’s true. My blog has not been getting the attention it deserves.

I’ve been working on my health over the last 3 months, cooking at home much more, and eating out much less.

I have become a health coach,  ( shrinktolife.com ) and have lost 16 lbs in my own journey in preparation for my upcoming wedding.

I have not lost my love of food, but I’m trying to be more in control of what I eat- which means more cooking and less dining out.

That said, I still VERY much believe in my everything-in-moderation theory. I am so happy at the weight I’m at now that I have committed to sticking with this plan. I will continue to eat healthfully and mindfully 80% of the time, and to allow myself indulgences 20% of the time.

Bigforkinmouth will absolutely and positively still hear about each and every one of those indulgences.

My waist has shrunk, but my mouth is still pretty forking big.

Yes, it’s true. I am writing a review for a fast food place. Is that totally ridiculous? No! Not when it’s fast food that’s actually real food! Not when it’s fast food that doesn’t mean greasy burgers and soggy fries!

I met my dad here for a quick lunch after he had told me what a great option it was and I’m very glad I did. For $6, you can have a grilled fish sandwich (I had basa, which I’d never heard of but liked), a drink (which, in my case was a 1/2 iced tea, 1/2 lemonade- one of my favs) and a side salad (just iceberg, tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions- nothing special, but not bad). You get your fish on a fresh roll (and a pretty good sized piece of fish at that), and 10 minutes later, you have finished your relatively healthy meal, and are satisfied without feeling that typical post-fast-food feeling.

If you’re in a rush and starving, this is a great choice at a great price. I’m sure I’ll be back and will probably try the tilapia, the grouper, or the shrimp next time.  I also found out they are planning to open a branch in Bradenton which will definitely come in handy for me since I live near there. Thanks G & S!
