First, let me apologize in advance for my upcoming absence on the blog. Next week I’m hosting FitBloggin‘, a conference I organize, and this year I moved us to the West Coast. To … Read the rest of this post
I whipped this up yesterday on a whim to complement the steak dinner I was cooking for Father’s Day.
I never expected everyone to like it so much, myself included!
I’m really starting to appreciate the flavor that fresh herbs bring to dishes,… Read the rest of this post
I’ve mentioned this idea, or a variation of it, in my Kale, Turkey and Black Bean Taco Filling post but it’s so good I had write about it again.
The idea is simple: Repurpose leftover taco meat (or any ground meat really) to make a warm,… Read the rest of this post
Even the daycare workers commented on this lunch. They were shocked he cleaned his plate with all that good food.
It’s funny. I can feed him the same … Read the rest of this post
One of my most popular recipes on GreenLiteBites is something I literally whipped up in minutes. I never expected it to be pinned almost half a million times.
quick post...be back later to catch-up on everyone's postings
Last nights weigh-in down 2.4#
so I lost 1# because of TOM 1.4# gain last week
have 5.4# to go to my goal of 143....yes I know it is not all about numbers but it helps to maintain
The past few weeks have been nuts. I signed off from BTL about a week or so before school ended (which was just last Friday). I was doing this extra grading for money. The system is all online. Basically, I sit at my laptop for hours and hours on end and grade scanned exams online. Click, click, click, click......It's tons of reading and tons of clicking and it requires lots of patience and concentration. And the extra money is good. All of the exams had a deadline to be marked by last…Continue
I've lost a total of 2.5 lbs and 4.5 inches! I'm happy to see some tangible evidence of my progress! I feel and look like I've lost more! So I guess as we build muscle and lose fat you just can't see the scale moving fast because it is all happening but since the muscle is more compact and streamlined you shrink and look better. I have a really busy day today (my day off)! I must go get a bunch of things accomplished! I think finally a day without rain!
I have been doing well with my self imposed 30 Day Challenge, even though its only day 5. I have not fallen victim of chocolate. Maybe after 30 days I will not crave it like I did. I've been eating more fruits & veggies. For my sweet tooth I allow for a Cliff Bar as long as my daily calorie intake is reasonable. It is tough to get in whole grains. So far the only one I am eating is brown rice. I am trying to decide to add to the 30 day…Continue
Today was the second day of my training class and day 18 of Whole30.
I drank a smoothie for breakfast on the hour ride to the training site and remembered to pack my lunch.
As I mentioned yesterday it was a nutrition class .. actually a "how to teach nutrition" class that I'm suppose to take back and use with our Managers at our schools. One of the exercises they did with us today was to give us potato chips and hershey kisses. First they had everyone take a chip and smell…Continue
So... on Sunday my daily routine was completely switched up... so I'm gonna work hard to get back to where I started...
I started my research program with 11 other wonderful math/cs/engineering folks which threw me off center. Sunday, I did well with eating but I didn't exercise.
Monday, I did well with breakfast and dinner, but overate at lunch and also didn't exercise. :(
Today, I did well with breakfast but overate at lunch...
But I am definitely going…Continue
I did day 25 workout this morning and my little one did it with me. She is so darn cute! I did the seated calf raises with her on my lap, we both got a giggle out of it. I plan to do day 26 tonight, even though this is my late night at work, because I'm just really determined to start week 5 tomorrow which puts me back on schedule (since I took my rest days over the weekend).
I can't believe we are just about a week and a half away from your vacation! I'm so excited, but a…Continue
Just past the 1/2 way mark of Whole30. It seems to be getting a little easier ... well somewhat. I'm starting to miss certain things more than I did at first. Like coffee. Since I don't drink coffee black and I can't have creamer ... I just cut it out all together.
Food wise was awkward today. Breakfast was normal. I missed lunch altogether --- not on purpose. I had a training class that started at 12:00 today but it was an hour away. I thought I'd be able to grab something…Continue
