When my mom sees this recipe she may literally laugh out loud. As a child I declared my hate of both mushrooms and onions more times than I can count!
My 7-year-old is the same as I was, making faces, sticking his tongue out and looking at them in disgust.… Read the rest of this post
Every time I hear people say it takes too much time or money to eat healthier/lighter I cringe. Sure it CAN be but there are plenty of ways to make small changes to your diet that can be done on a budget and made just as fast as waiting in a drive-thru… Read the rest of this post
Out of the blue The 7 Year-Old asked if I would buy him bagels. He said… Read the rest of this post
With a ripe pineapple aging on the counter and 2 kids who refuse to eat it, I had to come up with something fast. I’m always shocked how yummy a smoothie can be with minimal ingredients. There’s no need for protein powder or mixes. … Read the rest of this post
This will be my last maple syrup idea for a while, I promise!
I just came home from Vermont so inspired with my big ol’ jug and it’s so darn good!
This salad came out way better than I thought because honestly, there’s nothing… Read the rest of this post
This weekend was CRAZY! It was good, but busy and this is the first time I'm getting to get on the computer since Friday. Friday night I went to A.J.'s, then we headed to my parent's house for my sister's birthday. Sunday morning we went on a 5 mile hike on a trail near us. Very tiring! Good exercise though. :) Later that afternoon we went to the winery my sister wanted to go to for her birthday. I love winery atmospheres. It's like the world just slows down a little. So peaceful! After the…Continue
I am going to try to make this far from dramatic and tearful as I do not seek pity nor will I sit here and play the victim. Growing up I was extremely athletic attending competitive cheerleading and gymnastic practices literally 6 days a week for about 2-3 hours each day. Having been able to eat literally whatever I wanted and constantly saying “I don’t understand why people struggle with weight. I eat how I please and stay fit” I found myself in that youthful teenage girl state where my one…Continue
Good morning! Today my husband Scott and I celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary!!! We also like to celebrate the fact that we've been together for 16 years this month! We actually had a date Friday night so tonight we are just going to make dinner at home. Wednesday we both have the day off so we will do something special together. I'm very grateful for him, he is a great role model when it comes to fitness. I wish I had the dedication and the motivation that he has! He is in the…Continue
I am new here and am hoping to meet others with the same weightloss fitness goals. I am a 40 something year old working mom of 3/wife with a desk job living trying to keep my head above water most days and not collapse in this rat race also know as the DMV area. My day starts at 4:15 a.m. with a 1 hour and 20 minute average each way commute into the DC Metro area. I am desperately trying to find the time to maintain my health physical/mental and balance everything else life…Continue
So I had surgery last week and it threw me into a funk. But now Im ready to begin. I currently weigh 172 lbs but Im thinking about throwing my scale away...Ive been so obsessed with the number and not really how Im doing it so I want to change that now!! I have been binging and that definatly not the way to go. I was feeling really down and then I logged on here from my desktop not my phone and I was my pics. I have done an amazing job since June 2011 when this all began and I plan to…Continue
Wow... 2.5 years since I blogged on here... time flies!! Update: I have lost about 30 pounds over the last year and am feeling good, but losing some motivation. Saturday was the anniversary of my final decision to lose weight or die trying, so I am embarking on year 2 with a new goal. I want to lose 45lbs this year, by May 2014. TOTALLY ACHIEVABLE!! For all those of my blog friends who are reading this... you can do it to!! Let's cheer each other on! I know I need all the support I can get.…Continue
You know what that stands for - something someone would only say at the end of the day on Sunday.....
This weekend was fun! I brought a bunch of work home to grade and didn't touch any of it. Proud of myself but I'm sure I'll pay for it this week trying to get caught up!
Friday night we stayed home. I was beat from the week and husband wanted to go out and do something but I ended up crashing at like 11pm. Lame but well rested.
Saturday I finished a book in the morning…Continue
Ran another half marathon. 2 hours 12 min. 2 min slower than my PR. Oh well. At least I was 10 min faster than the last run I did.
I don't know how I did, but I did Insanity today. Now my body hurts a lot!
I ate horribly all of last week starting Monday. I did eat extra badly 2 days before the race. Anyways, thankfully I feel much less bloated after the run and am back to eating healthily.
I don't really have any serious races to train up for so I'm gonna be a little…Continue
This time around the weight loss has been slow and steady. I'm okay with 2 pounds a week as long as I know I am making the right choices for myself to get to a healthier weight. I know this week I could've been more diligent with my food choices, but I did what I was comfortable with. Being overwhelmed with a drastic life change produces results, but as I have proven to myself, they are temporary results. We always go back to the place of comfort. The place where we feel at home.…Continue
