Harder than I Thought

Since around Christmas, I've been a bit out of control with my eating habits and more so since our trip to Disney. The scale confirmed the other day that I'm a mess. Up 10#s. Its time to reel it in because I'm not getting any younger ya know. I can…See More

Feeling good

So I decided to go with the rest option yesterday. And I actually rested. I got in my 10k steps and that's about all I did yesterday. My body is thanking me for it. I feel good. I also went and got a massage yesterday and it was nice but it could…See More

The Simplest, Tastiest Cucumber and Avocado Salad Ever!

Cucumber and Avocado Salad
I think I’ve confessed this before but I’m going to do it again because I think it’s important to know that everyone doesn’t just like healthy things. Some of us work hard on it. Avocado and I have been on an interesting journey. When I was a child I don’t remember even seeing avocados. Maybe it’s because I grew up in the Northeast and they just weren’t popular there in the ’80s?? But I literally have ZERO avocado memories. When I went away to college, guacamole seemed [...]

Red Potatoes Roasted With Rosemary and Mustard

Red Potatoes Roasted with Rosemary and Mustard in Bowl
With onion and garlic temporarily off limits I’ve been challenging myself to get creative with flavors in the dinner department. Everyone likes roasted potatoes (well, everyone in my house, almost, sort of) but what if I jazzed them up with, say, a grainy mustard and some dried rosemary? Verdict? LOVED BY ALL! I’ve made these twice in the past week as I perfected the timing and both times Ryan asked for seconds, the Husband raved about them unsolicited and Evan, well, he took a bite [...]

Cucumber Bites With Blueberries and Cheddar

Cucumber Bites with Blueberries and Cheddar - Step 2
Getting creative in the snack department was a big factor in my initial 70-pound weight loss and now that I’m attempting to eat low-FODMAP, I’m rediscovering its powers. There’s just something totally satisfying about preparing a snack than grabbing something quick (that I always end up regretting) out of the pantry. Before I went grocery shopping this weekend I rummaged through my fridge and pantry for low-FODMAP friendly options. I came up with: Cucumber — On all safe lists I can find. Sharp Cheddar (Thanks to Cabot who [...]

Produce Pick: Dragon Fruit

Dragon Fruit
Last week I took a trip to my local Wegmans and although I was completely turned off by the hordes of people (this is why I never go) and horrible layout, I’m always impressed by the diversity in its produce department.  I mean who else carries dragon fruit in Maryland? I don’t think I’ve ever seen it available! Also known as Pitaya, dragon fruit is mostly found in Southeast Asia, Mexico, Central and South America, and Israel. I think it’s also grown [...]

Low-FODMAP Style Stuffed-Pepper Soup

LowFODMAP Style Stuffed Pepper Soup
Staying away from high-FODMAP foods is a challenge to say the least! I’m slowly figuring things out, but I feel like my vegetable consumption has tanked as all my favorites are on the list. Well, all my favorites except bell peppers! I had this idea for a stuffed pepper stew of sorts for some time, hoping it would be a one-pot meal I could actually get the family on board with. They were unimpressed. Not bad… yada yada…  I’ll say it [...]

Harder than I Thought

Posted by LindaB on February 1, 2015 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

Since around Christmas, I've been a bit out of control with my eating habits and more so since our trip to Disney. The scale confirmed the other day that I'm a mess. Up 10#s. Its time to reel it in because I'm not getting any younger ya know. I can not keep going like this. I have goals and I want to reach them. Turning the big 5-0 this year and I want to weigh so much less than I do now.

So why haven't I gotten my real in gear? Good question - Cause I don't know. Sabotage I suppose. …

Feeling good

Posted by Ovelia19 on February 1, 2015 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

So I decided to go with the rest option yesterday. And I actually rested. I got in my 10k steps and that's about all I did yesterday. My body is thanking me for it. I feel good. I also went and got a massage yesterday and it was nice but it could have been a million times better if I hadn't got an on-call call in the middle of it. Just reminded me why I never get massages when i'm on call. Because inevitably they always call me smack in the middle of it. Work is the reason why I can't have…

It's A Wash

Posted by Lynn on February 1, 2015 at 7:39am 1 Comment

I decided to take Paula's advice and step on the scale this morning.  Even though I had been off track all week.  Yesterday in particular in a big way.  Turns out the scale stayed the same which is all I was hoping for. 

 

Plan for today is to focus on all things whole and healthy to start the week and month off on the right foot.

 

Heading to the gym alone today. 

Husband wasn't interested which usually would have kept me at home as well.

Not today…

21 Days

Posted by Paula on January 31, 2015 at 11:36pm 1 Comment

I start the 21 Day Fix tomorrow. If you have not seen the infomercial it is the latest program from Beachbody. It came with 6 DVDs so I am looking forward to the new exercise routine. But the main reason that I bought it was for the diet program. Everyone who reads my posts knows I struggle with food more than exercise. This is a simple eating plan. No calorie counting ( I cheered when I realized this). It is portion controlled. It comes with these color coded containers and with a simple math… Continue

Sticking With What Works

Posted by Julia M. on January 31, 2015 at 6:55pm 3 Comments

So I finally did it.  I decided to join up with Weight Watchers again.  Last time around I only signed up for their online tools.  This time I signed up for meetings plus their online tools.  There's just something about being weighed by someone else and the accountability that provides.  I'm excited about it.  Lately I've been trying to watch what I eat but find it so difficult to be consistent.  Having a plan and being organized is really what works for me. I'll be going to the Monday…

Wow...Mood DOES affect your activity level! Learning how to use it to one's advantage!

Posted by Stephanie D on January 31, 2015 at 10:08am 2 Comments

Yesterday, I woke up feeling pretty good after taking a personal inventory of the fitness items I had on hand. I then experienced an "A-Ha!" moment that helped me realize that my work-outs don't need to be a chore, at which point I felt extremely motivated. I was ready to conquer the world! Thirty minutes later, clad in yoga pants and a comfy t-shirt, I was ready for my trail hike and eager to enjoy the miraculous and beautiful outdoors.

And then the phone rang.

It was the…

Drawing a Fence

Posted by LindaB on January 31, 2015 at 9:00am 1 Comment

Chantelle you got me thinking.....Now that I recognized my failings - what do I do to turn myself around?

My mom use to be a bowler.  And when I was a kid she would take me and my brother to the bowling ally.  Back then they used paper forms to keep score.  When ever one of us would throw gutter ball after gutter ball she would draw a fence between the next frame in hopes that would end a bowlers bad streak.

Today I am drawing a fence on my next frame.  I need to end the…

Deflated

Posted by Lynn on January 31, 2015 at 7:59am 2 Comments

HaHa.  If you're a football fan you would get a laugh out of that one.  (GO PATS)  If you're not, google deflate-gate. 

 

In all seriousness I feel deflated.  It started last Friday and it lasted all last week up to and including take out last night at 9pm.  I think it is from seeing some quick and easy results the first two weeks I was on track combined with some emotional eating of a difficult week at work and home.  Not a recipe for success in my…

exhausted

Posted by Ovelia19 on January 30, 2015 at 10:00pm 2 Comments

So my alarm went off at 530 morning and I saw the snow all over the ground and it was still snowing and all my ambition flew out the window and I went back sleep for almost another 2 hours. I got up packed my gym stuff and headed to work. I was bored out of my mind nothing to do and the scrappy weather made me lazy. So I skipped out at noon, bit I didn't waste the time I went to the gym and swam my 30 minutes. I got .57 miles in and then I hopped on the treadmill and did a mile to help with…
