Does anybody have any great ideas for dealing with Halloween candy and such? Here's a link to what we are doing, but I'd LOVE to hear other ideas. I haven't had tons of time to think this through so I would love input if you've got any! Here's the…See More

Beet and Greens Salad With Goat Cheese

Beet and Greens Salad with Goat Cheese Plated

Sometimes I’m shocked at how combining a few ingredients can result in something totally amazing. This is a 3-ingredient salad brought together with the simplest of dressings and it’s fantabulous!

I’ve made it quite … Read the rest of this post »»

Hasselback Sweet Potato With Cheddar, Chives and Bacon

Finished Hasselback Sweet Potato With Cheddar, Chives and Bacon

I never heard of a Hasselback potatoes until I was watching The Best Thing I Ever Made on Food Network and Robert Irvine shared his. I immediately thought:

I MUST do this with a sweet potato!

In case you are in the dark as I was, a Hasselback potato… Read the rest of this post »»

Ryan’s Roasted Potatoes

Ryan's Roasted Potatoes on Plate

I always find it funny when my kids don’t like things I LOVED as a kid. It’s the Murphy’s Law of parenting, just like when they sleep in the only day you need to leave early or decide they actually do need to use the potty 5 minutes… Read the rest of this post »»

Peppery Roasted Butternut Squash Soup With Bacon

Peppery Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Bacon Close Up

Last weekend I roasted a butternut squash with no real plans but who needs them? Roasted butternut squash is liquid gold! I can enjoy it simply pureed with a pinch of salt. It really doesn’t need much more than that!

Of course I’m … Read the rest of this post »»

Sriracha-Dressed Bacon Cheeseburger Salad

A Sriracha Dressed Bacon Cheeseburger Salad on Plate

Last night was burger night at my house. You’d think total crowd pleaser, right?

Well, The 3-Year-Old thinks the burger on the bun “ruins” it. So he removes the patty, devours the bun, and then needs to be coaxed to take a bite… Read the rest of this post »»

GIRL! Honestly, I was shocked. Everyone else was predicting girl (which I really think is just what they were hoping for) but I was thinking we would have another boy. We are over the moon to be able to embrace the pink sparkles and girly bows. Everything else checked out great on the ultrasound, but we have one active little girl on our hands. She was bouncing all over the place the whole time. I have a feeling she is going to keep me on my toes! At halfway through my pregnancy I have put…


What am I waiting for???

Posted by Dee on October 29, 2014 at 2:30pm 1 Comment

Uggh. I have no idea what I am waiting for honestly. I wrote my 1st blog what...prob a week ago and guess what? I still haven't starting exercising or eating any healthier. I would love to say----wait wait wait...I have reasonable excuses for not starting but one thing I know is no matter that the excuses are legitimate...they are still just that...excuses. Now...see I consider the fact that we had to go out of town to the specialist, spend the night away from home eat on the road in fast…


My arch-nemesis: Emotional Eating

Posted by Penni Brown on October 29, 2014 at 1:27am 3 Comments

When life doesn't quite go the way you'd planned, when relationships fall apart, jobs fall through, things break down, people you thought were good friends turn out to be anything but, or you just have a really rough day/week/month/year... what do "normal" people do? Cry? Scream? Throw things? Go on expensive shopping sprees? Hide under the bedcovers and wait for the storm to pass? Exercise like a maniac?

OR... Do they eat?

If you ignore the fact that my consumption of junk food is… Continue

Better & Balance

Posted by Paula on October 27, 2014 at 8:08pm 1 Comment

I had hoped for better when month end came. But I do not think I've lost weight. : (  I had hope to drop some, but I am not on a scale yet. Don't want it to steal my ambition. This month was not a total loss. I am doing better finding balance. I was so all or nothing and I think that can hurt me. So I eased up. Did exercise but let the day dictate what I did. I did more bike riding this month…


Lunchlady Walks!

Posted by LindaB on October 27, 2014 at 7:39pm 2 Comments

I did it!  Completed my 2nd Avon Walk - 39.3 miles.  The Charlotte Walkers raised 1.4 million!!!  Whoot Whoot!

I am proud to say that I went into this in beast mode.  Maintained an average of 16 to 19 minute miles the whole first day and finished strong.  While I know it was not a race, I even beat my time…


Hours Away

Posted by LindaB on October 24, 2014 at 7:41pm 3 Comments

Just 10 hours away from the start of the Avon Walk.  It will be an early rise tomorrow.  Need to be at the starting line by 5:45am.  6:15 start time for the first 26.1 miles.  Got all kinds of nervous energy going on. 

Checked in this evening and had an early dinner.  I am just about tucked in for an early night.

More to come.

This is it!

Today! There is no better time. There is no other place. It all begins today. (Well, I already started my new way of life a few days ago when I 1st found this blog. Let me tell you about myself and then we can catch up on the here and now and my future.

HI. My name is Dee. I am 50 ----wow! It seems so weird to write that. I am 50 years old. Anyway. So I am 50. I have pretty much had weight issues my entire life unless it was some stressful time when the stress was too much then I…


loss and gain.

Posted by Flipper B on October 21, 2014 at 9:15am 2 Comments

I got to my lowest weight whilst training for a 50k then for some reason I put on 8lbs and cant get it off. My race is in 2 weeks. I still was not at goal weight but I was close to a milestone like 2lbs close! I feel depressed and ashamed and now I can't wait till my race is over so I can try a different type of training to see if I can shock my body into losing again. I have like 40-50lbs to goal I have lost about 87. I hate the process I hate how long it takes I hate not being where I want…


Colonoscopy Day!! Yippee!!

Posted by Donna on October 21, 2014 at 6:07am 1 Comment

Ok, today I will be the lucky recipient of  a colonoscopy.  I know this is probably a very strange comment but I don't mind this procedure.  My stomach is empty, I have HAD to not eat ... how come we can do a colonoscopy prep, not eat for 32 hours, and manage but we can't resist that temptation for the bagel or donut at work or that 'sliver' of pie for dessert?  Why, when we have to resist and eat NOTHING we can do it? 

I am looking at…


Soon to be 55

Posted by Donna on October 20, 2014 at 10:37pm 2 Comments

Today I started my 'diet' again.  I will be 55 in a little less than two weeks and realized that this will likely be my last chance to get it right.  Yo yo dieting has been my modus operandi.  I always said I know how to lose weight, I just don't know how to keep it off.  I have had 5-6 iterations of this throughout my life - losing weight, vowing to never let myself get uncomfortable weight-wise again...only to succumb to the temptations out there and give in.  The reasons are many and I…
