"I agree!  Early on in my vacation week, I was doing well with water intake.  However, I broke my cup (big 24oz'r w/ a straw) on the second day so I didnt have my "crutch" to  help me get my count.  Four to five of…"

Spicy Slaw

I’ve been wanting to post this idea for weeks! Which is rare because I normally get an idea, make it, share it and then move on.

That’s right, I rarely make the same thing twice. It’s just how I’m wired. I love to constantly… Read the rest of this post »»

Beets and Basil

This is such a basic idea I almost wasn’t going to share it but then I figured, why not?

Sometimes I think we overcomplicate food. This is a reminder to myself to keep it simple.

The reactions from the family were pretty typical.

Guac-Turkey Burgers - Stacked

I might as well apologize now. Avocados may take over my blog. I’ve fallen in love.

I really didn’t think it was possible. I tried to like guacamole years ago but I never saw the appeal. I knew the health benefits of avocado and tried… Read the rest of this post »»

The California Avocado Commission sponsored FitBloggin‘ this year and now I’m completely smitten with avocados. Did you know an ounce of avocado has only 50 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals?

I’m back from FitBloggin and SO happy to be home in my own kitchen. Don’t get me wrong, traveling and eating out are GREAT but I’ve been overindulging in the food department and my body simply does not like it anymore.

A birthday and some progress

Posted by Erin on July 29, 2014 at 8:54am 0 Comments

Today is my birthday and for the first time in a couple of years my life feels calm. I feel good about the progress I have made (down 7.5 pounds in a month) and am looking forward. I have hope about my health and what I want to achieve. 1 year from now, I want to kiss the 200s good bye. 5 years from now, I want to be living a healthy lifestyle and wonder how I spent so many years relying on food for emotional sustenance. And I want to be running. These are my birthday wishes.

OK day so far...

Today I tried to log my feelings etc. while I ate. I still bought a few extra snacks at work that I did not need but I journaled why I was eating to try and get to the reason that I eat so much.   I made a big pot of oatmeal so I have breakfast made for the entire week.  Tomorrow I will make extra at dinner so I have a few lunches prepared. I am trying to be as prepared as possible so I don't get distracted. 

 

Those snacks I ate today were not great but it was not as bad as…

Vacation Recap

Posted by Kathie Whitmoyer on July 28, 2014 at 7:30am 5 Comments

I am back!!  We had a really nice week long vacation in Wildwood, NJ.  I got back to reality and stepped on the scale, only to find a 7lb gain.  What, the what?  I really am not entirely sure how that was possible as I had a good week.  I did splurge, yet I did not over indulge  And to boot - we walked EVERYWHERE!  I had over 64K steps on my fitbit for all of last week.  My neighbor told me she was watching and was amazed at how much I walked.  I think that the "gain" is somewhat…

Picnic challanges

Posted by Erica on July 28, 2014 at 6:39am 1 Comment

Yesterday was my sisters house warming party.  I started the day with my usual breakfast.  I packed my water, 1/2 sliced apple with almond butter, asparagus and ground turkey and a protein shake.  I drank the shake in the car on the way there and when we were cutting up the cheese I ate my apples and a little later the asparagus and turkey.  But I still picked on some cheese and salami.  I didn't drink any alcohol which is great it doesn't make me feel good and I always pay the price.  Once…

Week 2

Posted by Shanise Lynn on July 27, 2014 at 11:32pm 0 Comments

Starting Weight: 220 lbs

Current Weight: 216 lbs

Total Lost: 4 lbs

I only lost 1 lbs this week :/ I refused to be discouraged though, as it was still a loss and i can think of other things I can change this week to maximize my loss. This week has been HECTIC and I haven't had much time to plan my meals. This week though i made sure I carved out 3 hours to plan, and then shop. It was tough getting it into that timeframe but i was successful :) Here is to hoping to blog…

I do not ENJOY eating!!!

Posted by Janice on July 26, 2014 at 6:04pm 3 Comments

I read in a book that I am reading about Self Compassion and weight loss that suggests to "eat like a bird."  It says to make every meal  a songfest and savor the food and the group of people you are with.  Food is something to sing about!

Today while journaling I made four lists:  Why do I eat the way I do? What types of food do  I eat that make me feel out of control?  What times/when do I eat these types of food? and Things I do to sabotage my good health.

While reviewing…

Today, I'm just hanging out with my family.  I love them so much! I especially love that, when I'm ragging on myself about not looking my BEST, they tell me I'm beautiful- and I believe it.  I weigh 169lbs today- definitely about 40- 50 lbs more than my 5 ft should be carrying but, I gained a ton of weight with this last pregnancy, ending at 225 lbs after delivery.  I've come a long way, sure, but in recent weeks, I've lost focus. I think and hope that joining this community will help me to…

I bet you thought I disappeared into thin air...

Posted by Anthony Griffith on July 26, 2014 at 10:05am 3 Comments

Guess who's back...back again...Griff is back...tell your friends... :) That's right! I am alive and I am well! I apologize for being gone so long. It has indeed been a rough road the last 8 months or so ever since I lost my mom. I am beginning to get to a better place and a better understanding of myself and how I grieve. Not that you ever know how you will grieve until it happens to you, but I NEVER thought this would happen to me so early in life. 31 is a young age to lose a parent and…

You might have been raised by a narcissist if...

Posted by RollerCoaster on July 25, 2014 at 2:36pm 0 Comments

Here are some qualities that describe me which are a result of being raised by a narcissistic mother:

  • I have difficulty knowing who I am
  • I have problems with perception, sometimes I think I'm crazy
  • I expect my own perfection
  • It feels like I was born broken
  • I keep on doing the same things but expecting a different result
  • I feel I'm powerless
  • I have self-esteem issues
  • I lack confidence
  • I have difficulty being…

150 words in, my weekly weigh in

Posted by Holly R on July 24, 2014 at 10:57pm 0 Comments

Making changes, making notes.



Almost two months of consistent walks down. I cancelled my gym membership after paying approximately $400 dollars per visit since January. I cancelled my WW monthly pass because I would rather pay a sitter.



Good for the walking. A big Texas "suck it, gym guilt money" to. Lifetime. A cautious observation about WW. I have not logged any food in two weeks. I so hope that the focus on power foods helps me. I feel good but WW was a place for… Continue
