Favorite Atkins-Friendly Food
Roasted turkey with green beans

The year is coming to a close and it has certainly been a fabulous one! Thanks to Atkins, I was able to maintain my 25-pound weight loss. I'm the healthiest and happiest I've ever been. Being able to be more active is amazing - I can run around with my Pearly girl and truly be an active participant in her life.

Sticking to Atkins this year was an easy task not only because eating healthy and exercising have become a part of my daily life, but also because with Atkins if you stray from your plan, you don't have to start back again from scratch.

I'm so excited to see what the New Year holds for me and all of you. God bless and I will see you in 2015!

XO,
Sharon

   

There’s no doubt about it.  The holidays are here!   We’re out shopping for gifts, maybe attending a few holiday parties and busy making plans to celebrate with our families.  I know I can't wait to spend quality time with my family!  There’s also loads of stress around this time of the year which often leads to bad food choices.  If you can, try to your best to avoid any potential pitfalls. If you're Christmas shopping at the mall remember to pack an Atkins bar because you’re going to need a snack at some point and this will hopefully give you the strength to fight off the temptation to hit the Food Court…..Bad Food Court!!  But if you indulge a little please don't despair.  It's OK.  I’m not going to lie, I’ll probably indulge a bit myself because it’s almost unavoidable, right?  The beauty of Atkins is that if you fall off the wagon, you don't have to go back to square one.  It’s so easy to start back up again.

 

I hope you all have a fabulous and relaxing holiday celebrating with family and friends.


How are you going to try and stay motivated during the holidays? Let's hear it.


Big Kiss,

Sharon

Thanksgiving is less than a week away and I don't know about you but I'm excited to be spending time with my family and of course all the fabulous food!

Most people think it's totally impossible to be on Atkins during Thanksgiving, but between you and me…..they're wrong! There are now so many delicious and healthy recipes that you can make for your Thanksgiving dinner so let’s take a moment to dig out our Atkins cookbooks and get started.

Here are a few of the delicious treats that will be at the Osbourne Thanksgiving table:

Savory Turkey With Gravy
No Thanksgiving meal would be complete without turkey, and luckily on Atkins, you don’t need to deny yourself.  This bird is stuffed with tons of Atkins-friendly veggies - carrots, celery, and onions and is drizzled with the homemade gravy.   This turkey tastes so heavenly you'll never want to go back to your pre-Atkins ways. 
 

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes
I used to think that any Thanksgiving dinner would not be complete without mashed potatoes but for someone on Atkins their diet can be put in jeopardy with so many carbs.  So let’s swap out the mashed potatoes this year and replace it with a mixture of pureed cauliflower and fat free sour cream.  I promise you that nobody will notice the difference.  All I can tell you is that Ozzy just loves this cauliflower-sour cream mash recipe.
 

Green Beans Almandine
They always say it’s so important to get greens in every single day and these green beans melted with butter and sliced almonds satisfy your taste buds while keeping you on track with your plan. And, the preparation is so easy. Just heat the almonds and green beans in a skillet and add black pepper to taste. View the full recipe.


Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake
Did you save room for dessert?  A perfect Thanksgiving meal is just not complete without the sweets (I LOVE them)!  This Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake is not only to-die-for, but also Atkins-friendly. The best part about this delicious after dinner treat is that nobody will be able to tell that the crust is made of pecans, sugar substitute and cinnamon.

 

What Atkins-friendly recipes are you whipping up in the kitchen this year?  Tell me everything! Have a very Happy Thanksgiving filled with love and laughter and remember: don’t deny yourself, its Thanksgiving!  I am SO thankful for each and every one of you.

All My Love,
Sharon

It is finally feeling like Fall in Los Angeles!  Autumn is fabulous for fashion - I just love sweaters and scarves, but the colder weather can really take a toll on my motivation.  On chilly days like these, Ozzy and I prefer to stay home and watch our favorite shows on the telly.  We LOVE Homeland…we are soo addicted!

Instead of binging on everything in sight for our TV night, Ozzy and I will now have our delicious Atkins-friendly meals.  If you do end up wanting to eat something during your night in, there is nothing better than a big pot of veggie soup to keep you warm!

Staying busy with family, walking my doggies, or trying a new workout keeps me active and from overindulging. What about you? What do you do to keep busy and out of the fridge? I'd love to hear it!

All My Love,
Mrs. O

I don't know about you, but this time of the year is always incredibly busy for me.  I'm back at the studio everyday for The Talk, I just filmed an episode of CSI, which I’m very excited about, and I did some weekend speaking engagements on the east coast, which was something new for me.  When we have demanding schedules, it's easy to say, "I just don't have time to work out."

I've learned that no matter how busy you are, you have to make exercise a priority in your schedule.  I always try to get my workouts done early in the morning before I leave for the studio to tape.   Some days I do Pilates and the next mix it up with the treadmill or weights. If I can't get my workout in during the morning, I’ll find some time later in the day to do something active like walking with Ozzy, my doggies, or with friends.

Believe me, I have to force myself to get up and do some type of exercise or I would sit on the couch all day.  Whether it's just a short walk, taking the stairs, or carrying a basket at the grocery store, every little bit helps and I feel so much better afterwards!

What about you? How do you fit your workouts into your busy schedules? Tell me everything!

All My Love,
Mrs. O
