I did it!

Today was my first 5k. It was a small race, which I think helped me not be so nervous. It was also called a fun run. It was a 5k walk or run & a half marathon. I am so incredibly happy with myself. I ran the entire race. My time was 33:12. I now…See More

Avocado Egg Salad in Bell Pepper Cups

Avocado Egg Salad in Bell Pepper Cups
The California Avocado Commission just needs to hire me as a full time ambassador or something. We are currently working together on a post-per-month contract but I can’t help myself. I love coming up with new ways to eat avocados! (And it feels so weird saying that as a former avocado hater but it’s true). This morning I was staring at my last avocado, trying to figure out a new way to eat [...]

Green Pineapple Core and Coconut Smoothie

Finished Green Pineapple Core and Coconut Smoothie
I hate wasting food. I’m not Molly Ms. Perfect but I do normally try to do things like eating leftovers, using bones to make soup, and freezing aging fruit for recipes. I also love this bagged spinach trick and I even have freezer bags of vegetable scraps to use when I make stock. I have, however, gotten [...]

Portabello, Sausage, Kale and Spagetti Squash Skillet

Portabello, Sausage, Kale and Spagetti Squash Skillet
I’m finding my groove again with keeping fresh ingredients on hand for inspiration. This was yesterday’s lunch and I’m shocked how simple yet how delicious it was with only 5 ingredients! Sausage Roll: I’ve been keeping one of these on hand to add to eggs in the morning but I love how versatile it is. It’s great for single servings and portion control, too, because you just cut off what you need. Portabello Mushroom Caps: I go through phases with these. Every few months I’ll [...]

Whole Wheat Chocolate Breakfast Muffins

Finsihed Whole Wheat Chocolate Breakfast Muffins
On Mother’s Day I decided to whip up a batch of chocolate muffins. Of course I couldn’t just follow a recipe as written — where’s the fun in that? — so I dug online for one I could use as a starting point. The recipe I found was pretty typical and called for the addition of chocolate chips and chunks but I skipped all that. Instead, I focused on healthier ingredients that would make a hearty and satisfying breakfast. Mission accomplished. The [...]

Quinoa-Topped Portobello Melt

finished Quinoa-Topped Portobello
This was one of those lunch idea that just hit me when I opened the fridge. I’ve been trying to keep cooked quinoa on hand for quick meals and I picked up a packed of portobello mushrooms this past weekend just because. When I saw both side by side I thought… BAM! Lunch. I used what I had on hand, which was some fresh spinach and aging grape tomatoes but this idea can go in a million directions. I really wish I had some fresh basil but [...]

Today was my first 5k. It was a small race, which I think helped me not be so nervous. It was also called a fun run. It was a 5k walk or run & a half marathon. I am so incredibly happy with myself. I ran the entire race. My time was 33:12. I now understand how every runner here gets addicted. I already want to do another one! It really helped give me the boost to try harder with my diet. I want to lose weight.

Why Do I Want This? <--and what is THIS?

Posted by Shannon H. on May 23, 2015 at 9:04am 2 Comments

Guys. I had a light bulb moment last weekend. I haven't really defined why I'm after this or what the hell "this" even is. Worse yet, when I started to I was really sad by the first thing I wrote down...

  • I want to look like a million bucks the next time I see my old co-workers and mentors (B., Br., Chr.) or any even remote acquaintances I might run into from my old job. 

Ok. What?!? Really? That was the FIRST thing you…

Exercise has always been the easier part of the healthy lifestyle for me to get motivated by. Although I still have alot of slippage from my goals, I enjoy exercise and reset much more quickly than when I slip from my food goals. 

Last weekend, I participated in my 5th Bay to Breakers race in a row. The B2B is a 12k race, which is 7.6 miles and includes a classic San Francisco hill- the gravity defying kind! Here I am at the start of the race with my mom- this is her third…

Since I have been so disappointed in the scale readings lately I decided to take some measurements to see if there has been any change. The last time I did that was 3 months ago. Well my thighs are 1/2 inch smaller than they were. Even though I have not lost weight in the last 3 weeks, I did have a loss. Tomorrow is my weigh in day. I have had some bad food moments, but I am going to get on it anyway. My first 5k is tomorrow too & I am so nervous but I will finish it even if I am walking it… Continue

Hello fellow Bloggers!

I am new to! I found this while looking for an outlet/ motivator for my new goals in fitness. First, I do want to tell my story and the hopefully I will post my goals, some of my favorite healthy recipes, and ideas in later posts. I have promised myself to be totally honest to you…


Has it really been two weeks?!

Posted by Dee on May 21, 2015 at 8:38pm 3 Comments

Well since my goal is to post once per week, I guess I only missed one. But two weeks feels like a long time! 

Lots to report. My motivation is coming back, but I did have a few setbacks. Fortunately, they were time/illness setbacks rather than "I just don't feel like it" setbacks. 

I'm excited about this new app (new to me) for tracking what I eat. I found calorie tracking to be helpful to me my first time around with weight loss; it made me SO aware of what I…


Healthy lunch

Posted by Angie Y on May 21, 2015 at 7:32pm 2 Comments

 Today was GREAT! I woke up at 530 AM because I was THAT excited about seeing my cousin I havent talked to in 6 months. I had a good breakfast Toast with PB and a cutie. Then I cleaned the house a bit and waited for lunch to get here. So Lunch got here and we went to Buffalo Wild Wings... We both got a grillled chicken salad and it was AMAZING!!!!!!!!! Its a pretty large salad with a chicken breast that has been coated in your favorite sauce.  I got the Asian Zing nomnom!!! It was so great I…


Brutally Honest

Posted by Christy on May 21, 2015 at 3:01pm 6 Comments

I took a brutally honest look back at my food tracker over the past couple of weeks. Admittedly, my view of "good" choices is a little bit skewed because I have been pregnant and/or maintaining my weight for almost 2 years now. There was plenty of wiggle room for indulgences under those circumstances. I found myself saying "yes" or "why not" to a lot of the things I used to say "no" to. I found myself ordering burger and fries when we picked up instead of the regular grilled chicken and…

Seed Corn?

Posted by Angie Y on May 20, 2015 at 5:30pm 5 Comments

okay ladies..^^^ this right here has been the issue for me since the beginning of Feb.  When I was training on the treadmill at the Y.... I created this seed corn.. at least I think that is what it is from doing tons of internet research. I have no insurance, which means no doctor for me. Ive been trying to do what…
