Meggie Works Out And Eats Apples

No, this is not some blob monster 😉  It looks much better in reality, I swear.  It’s actually a whole baked apple, my new favorite dessert and it’s really easy to make and yummy.  I made my own recipe and it requires practically nothing.  All I did was wash and core an apple, you choose the variety, filled the core by layering raisins, a drizzle of honey, a few dashes of cinnamon, more raisins, drizzle honey, dash of cinnamon and then very lightly cover the opening with light butter or margarine.  You set the oven to 380 degrees F and bake the apple(s) for one hour.  It’s so easy and healthy 🙂

Yes, I’m on a health kick in case you haven’t noticed.  I usually get inspired to make healthful changes around this time of year, when the seasons are changing and winter is leaving.  If you’ve never been in IN during the winter, let me just say, it is very ugly.  There’s really no other word to describe it.  In the spring though and early fall, it’s gorgeous.  Very strange contrast, but true.  Trust me, I’ve lived here for 24 years 😉

Anyway, I have been doing P90X3 for two weeks straight now and I’m telling you, I definitely notice the difference in how I feel and look.  My mood is so much better.  I feel better.  I’m making better eating choices.  Not to mention, my body is looking so much tighter!  I love it.  My mental health is so much better too.  Hating your body is never a good thing for the psyche, so this is helping with that.  Also, I just don’t worry about illness as much during the spring or summer. It’s very refreshing.

When I was younger in high school, I took the no eat method when it came to “losing weight.”  I didn’t need to lose weight.  I wonder what I looked like back then. I remember weighing 103 and thinking I was heavy.  Not good Megan!  I remember a girl in my class asking my friend in a “whisper” if I was anorexic.  That never occurred to me at the time, but looking back I think yes I was.  I never ate, except like one yogurt a day and some cereal.  I was that way practically through high school and then when I met K he fed me quite well.  Now that I’m on sertraline, I am hungry more often than not. I’ve figured out ways to control this without compromising health, but I still seemed to have gained unwanted weight.  Last year when I went to the doctor, I was at my all-time high.  Now, I’m getting back to how I weighed before sertraline and my hunger issues.

I would take a before and after picture, but yeah, nope.  Just trust me on this one.  If I’m confident enough, there may be an after shot 🙂

Also, Chester bites me when I work out. I guess he thinks I’m playing with him 😉

Thanks for reading everyone!  I’ve missed you 🙂

  1. Ah, Megan! I love it when you share. I relate to practically everything you say, although I have a feeling I am a decade or two ahead of you. I’m so happy that you are staying on top of everything at your age instead of waiting like I did. Yay, you! I’ve considered starting P90 back up…the 25 minute work-out. We’ll see. Make it a great day!

  2. Welcome back. ha ha baked apples. ooh their natural sweetness melting in the mouth.
    Okay okay i need to work out myself. seriously need to push myself. again.
    Well thank you for the motivation Super Megan. keep on smiling.

    1. so glad to hear from you! I LOVE baked apples and apples cooked just about any way 🙂 I feel like I haven’t been working on my blog near enough now. Spring will do that to me 😉

  3. I’m glad you’re doing so well! My kitty thinks I’m playing with her when I fold laundry.

    I also think this is the first post I’ve ever seen without a picture of Chester.

      1. In all honesty I was the same way as an adult. After having Ash I had to work at staying little, I can remember my mom laughing and saying that she hoped she lived long enough to see me gain weight and not be able to do a thing about it…well she lived enough and a couple of years ago she made that comment again and I simply told her I hope she got the pleasure she expected, and I told her she was being mean to me…she quickly felt terrible…my mission accomplished, guilted her, lol.
