My gym started a new feature on its website called “Tasty Thursdays” and our new trainer posted a sweet potato casserole idea I just had to make my own — because, you know, I can’t follow a recipe.
Anyway, I’ve… Read the rest of this post
Sometimes I feel weird sharing my more simple ideas here on the blog so I just instagram and post them on Facebook and twitter. But then, I forget not everyone is confident in the kitchen, and I start to get questions like, do you have the exact recipe… Read the rest of this post
Sometimes I feel like my cooking talents are wasted on my family. Other times, when I’m not so self-confident, I assume I must just be a bad cook.
How awesome would it be if they not only liked what I cooked but appreciated how I can pretty … Read the rest of this post
I made my first batch of “energy balls” a couple of months ago and fell in love with their simplicity. I’ve never quite been able to master my own granola bar but put a few forgiving ingredients in a bowl and mash together into… Read the rest of this post
Let me tell you a little story about me and Indian food.
It all starts in northeastern Pennsylvania in the ’80s. I grew up with an Italian mother who made a pot of homemade sauce once a week. We cooked a lot and lived on pasta and things like … Read the rest of this post
Sticking with my fitbit goals and even exceeding in some cases. Yesterday I did 27 flights of stairs since I didn't do any on Saturday (no access to stairs on that day).I did yoga and walking I'm feeling better. I expected to do nothing today and as such all I got in was my stairs and way too many calories. Tomorrow back to the grind and likely I'll spend the rest of the week making up for today. But I'm okay with one bad day especially since it won't happen often. I'm actually feeling…Continue
Sigh. That whole sprint to the end of the year thing lasted a total of five hours. I went to the gym, had a good workout, and came home to the boys being wild so I grabbed my mom and went to Friendly's. Burger. Coke. And Fribble. Sigh. I feel like an idiot. I always come here and post my wonderful intentions and then they fly out the window and I feel stupid for not being able to follow through.
I have come to the conclusion that there is nothing my trainer enjoys more than making us miserable. Today as we were on the verge of dying he was just smiling and laughing it up. Secretly I like it that he pushes us as hard as he does (at least I feel that way AFTER the workout is over) because I like to get the biggest bang for my buck in a workout. I like leaving the gym feeling like I have nothing else to give--in the shortest amount of time possible.
Today we did the…Continue
A friend unloaded on my about how horrible and selfish all ultra runners are and how we are all forcing our goals and lifestyles on everyone and how all we do is brag about how much better we are than everyone else in the population. I think I may have lost a friend today. I felt something coming but it still hurt.
I know this is all her own crazy from inside herself. She takes…Continue
I know this whole weight loss thing is supposed to be a series of healthy choices added together to equal a life long commitment of health and happiness. That just doesn't work for me. I am much more of a sprinter than a marathon runner so I need a short term goal to aim for. Just so happens that we are four months away from the end of the year and I plan on being in onederland by the time that ball drops at midnight. Once that happens I will consider focusing on a half marathon. ;) …Continue
Eat More to Weigh Less After finding the link on a thread I was reading in the bodybuilding.com forums I started reading and it makes so much sense and is exactly where I've been going with my calories anyway. So I just wanted to share for the folks that feel like their bodies have grown used to the low calories and you gain at calories set where you should be losing. So it's a whole process and it's no…Continue
Car trouble has taken much of time during the past 24 hours, as has my new guitar. Taco salad last night for dinner, apples to-day at work, and now sweet peppers and tomatoes dipped in ranch and lake perch just going on the grill.
Last night I started to feel like I was coming down with a cold. Woke up with a full head cold and I feel so wiped out! Needless to say, I did not work out today. I have been able to stick to healthy food choices, however. Here is my food journal!
Breakfast: coffee w/1% milk and a splash of creamer, starbucks iced coffee with half and half
Lunch: 3 eggs and a sandwich thin
Dinner: spinach salad with 4oz grilled chicken breast, .5 oz raw pumpkin…Continue
For me I don't typically make a list to go to the grocery store unless I'm trying out a new recipe. I tend to buy the same things and I typically go to Aldi and BJ's. I hit up the regular grocery store to stock up on sale items when certain things go on sale. My freezer always has lean meats…Continue
