Raw Beet and Apple Salad

plate of Raw Beet and Apple Salad
THIS SALAD IS AMAZING! I’m sorry but it totally warrants some excitement. I made it the other day and I couldn’t believe how yummy it was. Raw beets… I’m on a kick! I’ve had a couple of beets in the fridge for a couple weeks and I’m in a use-them-now-or-never situation. Using what I had on hand this is what I whipped up. The earthiness of the beets and the sweetness of the apple were just perfect together. Add [...]

Smooth Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie With a Secret Frozen Ingredient

Smooth Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
Once I announced I was working with the California Avocado Commission I found myself fielding lots of avocado questions. Everything from how to cut them to how store them but the most common topic involved managing their ripeness. Avocados are like banana or mangoes, they will ripen on your counter in a few days.  They are ideal when the skin darkens and they become slightly soft to the touch. However, their window of [...]

Crispy Skinned, Citrus Roasted Chicken

20150415_chick01
After getting back from an AMAZING trip to New Orleans with The Husband I was ready to hit my kitchen running. I love eating out but nothing beats a home-cooked meal. I defrosted a small whole chicken for a few hours in a sink full of water and decided to use what I had on hand to dress it up. The result was FANTASTIC! So fantastic Ryan couldn’t even wait until I finished taking photos to steal a bite. I’ve been [...]

Ground Turkey and Butternut Squash Chili

Ground Turkey and Butternut Squash Chili topped with avocado
Since canceling my CSA membership I’ve been trying to visit a local farm store for every other grocery shopping trip. This way I’m buying a bit more locally while reducing the amount of processed food in the house because it just isn’t available at those places. The farm store near me is great for not only produce but poultry. They offer all sorts of cuts and have fresh ground turkey breast and thigh. Last week I decided to give the ground turkey thigh [...]

Fish Tacos With Avocado-Lime Dressing

Fish Tacos with Avocado Lime Dressing
This is my first official post for the California Avocado Commission but, you know, I’ve been going a little avocado crazy in these parts since they sent me that case. My mission this month was to California-ize a recipe using avocado. I wasn’t quite sure what that meant but as soon they said it I thought: FISH TACOS! I’m not going to claim to know what an authentic California Fish taco is supposed to [...]

Weight - Up .2 pounds. Down 10 pounds since Day 1



Mood - I am doing okay, but this cooler weather has me in a cooler mood.



Food - I am making good choice, but I still find myself snacking at times. Damn salty snacks.



Exercise - I trained 3 days for my 5k & did 3 days of 21 Day Fix DVDs. I find myself liking jogging more.



I am disappointed I did not lose weight this week, but I am not going to let it ruin my entire weekend. Heck, it could just be… Continue

Date Night

Posted by Christy on April 25, 2015 at 2:47pm 0 Comments

Last night we left the little one for the first time to get away for a little date night. I have an awesome friend that is always insistent that she be the first to watch my kids and I feel completely comfortable with dropping them off there and heading away for awhile. However, I think my husband needs a little re-training in the WW way. I have been at maintenance or pregnant for awhile now. That coupled with extra activity points meant that I could go out for a splurge from time to time.…

Today I Rest

Posted by Lynn on April 23, 2015 at 8:17am 0 Comments

I have been really killing my workouts this week and pushing myself very aggressively to top my own personal best every single day.  I'm not going to lie.  Yesterday there was some pretty loud self talk telling me to take a break but I ignored it and killed the workout in super star fashion.

 

I am feeling a bit tired and sore from working out plus today is a day off for the husband and we have a FULL schedule including allergy testing for the youngest, allergy and xolair shots…

False Readings

Posted by Paula on April 22, 2015 at 11:01pm 2 Comments

Talk about false readings. Last week was so dang sunny & spring like I thought we were done with winter, then yesterday we had snow,sleet, hail. I mean it just changed hour to hour. I didn't get to bike or run on Monday or Tuesday. But today I did get in a run/walk training in today. Tomorrow is suppose to be nicer & if the wind is a bit calmer, I am going to get in a bike ride after work. I have been doing good with my eating, resisting snacking after dinner and sticking to the 3 meals… Continue

This Little Bugger

Posted by Lynn on April 21, 2015 at 4:29pm 4 Comments

 

This little bugger almost ruined my entire day yesterday.  Looks pretty harmless, right?  Not so much.  I had my niece and nephew for the day yesterday and my sister baked me a batch of my most favorite Mickey Mouse shaped chocolate cookies to say thank you.  I am usually not much of a cookie girl…

Fitness: Completed 5 of 6 workouts. Biked 74 miles +…

Week in Review

Posted by Christy on April 20, 2015 at 10:05pm 3 Comments

Monday nights are my WW night. What a horrible time for a weigh in. Not only is it right after the weekend, but it is at night as well. When I first signed up, that was the only time that wold work for me and I really enjoy the leader, so now it just stuck. It's really not that bad.

I went into tonight's weigh in feeling confident. I knew that I had a good week. I tracked everything and made good choices. I used 20 out of 49 of my weekly points because I am not able to earn…
