Butternut Ginger Soup With a Side of Diet Tips

ginger butternut squash soup with shrimp
This weekend I made the most amazing, simple soup and it reminded me of all the little things I do day-to-day to help me feel in control of my diet. Before we go any further let me establish I despise the word “diet” when used to represent calorie restriction for a short period of time solely for the purpose of losing weight. Instead I use it to simply mean “what I eat,” which I happen to take fairly seriously. I say fairly because I [...]

Shrimp Tacos With Peanut Sauce

Shrimp Tacos with Peanut Sauce
This weekend I got back from our annual week at the shore, itching to cook something in my own kitchen that wasn’t pizza, hamburgers or cheesesteaks — the trifecta of beach food for us. I hit the grocery store after unpacking to restock the fridge and get some fresh food in the house. There happened to be shrimp on sale, which inspired me. Shrimp tacos sounded perfect,  a light, easy meal. To spice up the tacos I made a simple homemade peanut sauce using pantry ingredients I had [...]

Balsamic Beef With Zucchini

Bowl of Balsamic Beef with Zucchini
I am between summer trips at the moment so my kitchen has seen busier days. Last week I took the boys on our yearly mother-sons adventure (click here for photos and a  recap) and next week we head to the Jersey Shore for our annual week at the beach. I love summer! Right now I’m in my clean-out-the-fridge mode trying to use up perishables before we leave. The boys wanted burgers for dinner but I wasn’t in the mood. So I used [...]

Simple Oven-Roasted Brisket — My First!

My First Oven Roasted Brisket!
Cooking large cuts of meat isn’t something that came natural to me. Whole chickens, large roasts, even pork loins I used to find intimidating. I’m not sure why — in some ways they are easier to prepare than individual steaks or chops. Preheat the oven, pop them in, set a timer and boom! Dinner. They do require a bit more planning. You can’t just pull out a frozen brisket after work and have dinner on the table in an hour, which [...]

Slow Cooker Ginger Beef

Slow Cooker Ginger Beef
It’s been 3 weeks since my last post but I’m still alive, I swear! A few weeks ago I started consulting for a small tech firm and my days have been filled with programming learning modules. I’m also still managing the gym and last I checked, I have two kids running around this place somewhere. I kid. I kid. I’m busy but I’m finding the details of calculating specific nutritional information for my ideas more than my lack of time holding me back from posting more. My [...]

My story of Struggling for Fit Shape

Posted by Emma Jones on November 22, 2016 at 11:50am 0 Comments

Since the early childhood I have always being a little bit plump. It never seemed a real problem for me as I thought that situation was under my total control. As the time showed, I was wrong. When I became older things started to go wrong and my problem with excess weight started growing together with the number of kilos on the scales.

First Fails

Fitness industry becomes more popular every day and I decided not to stay aside. I found the nearest gym next to my house and…

Weight - Down 1.4 pounds. I was really getting upset seeing it climb. I have to work harder.

Food - The fact is I really have to get this under control. Weight loss is 80% diet. There is no exercising away a bad diet.

Exercise - Ran 5 days on the dreadmill. This year we had cable down in the basement so it is a little more tolerable.

Mood - Still suffering with anxiety. Worried about everything. Praying gas been more intense than ever.

I can't believe… Continue

Got up this morning & headed to Dunkin Donuts for a coffee & toasted bagel. I put pumpkin butter on mine. It is fat free & I like the flavor. It is basically pumpkin purée wth spices. I chose the sugar free. It was still chilly when we got to the park to get in our Sunday run. The first mile was tough, but i did warm up. Not sure how long we will be able to continue runnning outside. We got in 6 miles. Lucky for me, it has been a mild November. I signed up for the Turkey Trot. A 5… Continue

Weight - Up 1.0 pounds. Overeating is the reason.

Exercise - Ran 25 miles on the treadmill. Getting too dark to run after work. I am still running Sunday mornings.

Food - Too much eating. Frankly there has been too much crap at work. This week alone I did a serious binge on Goldfish crackers. I really need to get my mini binges gone. Stress & boredom seem to be the reasons.

Mood - Stressed. Nervous. After this past week of elections & the violence that… Continue

2 months until the end of the year. 2017 is just around the corner. Election Day is here & I really don't know who to vote for. I can only hope through prayer that this country will pull together & bring back values, concern for others & remember what makes this country the best place on earth. One thing I "elected" to do is sign up for the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving day. It is a 5 mile run. It will mark the 5th run I will have completed this year. I am nervous as I get with all… Continue

Weight - Down 0.8 pounds. Yep, still dancing with those 2 pounds. Back & forth.

Exercise - Ran 24 miles. No bike this week. Had great weather for November. Signed up for the Turkey Trot. A 5 mile run.

Food - Too much snacking. Pretzels in general. The gluten caught up with me & the scale shows me why I shouldn't ea them. I swear I am a salt addict.

Mood - Kind of down. Unlike my weight. It is the last 2 months of the year & I wanted "lose weight" not… Continue

Happy Happy Friday! So after seeing one of my clients get smaller and smaller doing Weight Watchers Smart Points I decided to give it a try without weighing myself. Mostly out of fear that I wouldn't like what the scale said and it would unmotivated me. Hey, it's happened more then I like to admit. Well today was the end of week 3 so I made myself get on the scale and I'm glad I did. Not weighing myself gave me this "ignorance is bliss" feeling about it. But this week I noticed my motivation… Continue
