This past Sunday was Easter and I had a BLAST cooking for people who actually like to eat. At least that’s always my joke when extended family is in town because as you know the kids are, well, kids and The Husband isn’t, you know, a … Read the rest of this post
Sorry for my short hiatus. I was on an amazing adventure with the 8-Year-Old in California. I can’t wait to share more about our trip on my travel blog, but first I had to get back to my kitchen. After eating on the road for 5 days I was craving… Read the rest of this post
Have I confessed my obsession with non-bread breading?
OK … I’m obsessed with breading things in anything other than bread.
It’s not that I have anything against traditional breadcrumbs, I just find them boring. Plus,… Read the rest of this post
I’ve been trying to serve the family more fish — NOT in the form of breaded sticks — by serving it at least once a week. Fish has been the only dish I surrendered to making substitutions on in the past by serving The Husband and… Read the rest of this post
You guys know me by now. I love getting inspired with what I have on hand, and after last week’s farm share this is what I had floating around my kitchen.
Saturday morning I decided to have a little fun and whip up something just for me using… Read the rest of this post
Less than a week after getting back from our cruise vacation and I've already lost the 2 lbs that I put on while we were away! That's great news and great motivation to get rid of the rest that accumulated over the last 3 months!
Leg day yesterday was awesome it felt good and I'm a little sore today but not as bad as I anticipated.Today is abs and shoulders and I'm going to do it as soon as I'm done posting! It's funny I haven't worked abs yet but they have been sore as I've been…Continue
So I haven’t left the country or the internet. I have been swamped at work and getting ready for my surgical procedure and then some leave.
In the past week I have been starting to use the “SHealth” app on my Samsung mobile. The aim was that I steadily increased my walks. The first few days I added a 1.5km walk every night. On the weekend I did a 7km walk. I decided that since I’m due for surgery in 4 days I will rather stay out of the gym and be outside…Continue
I've been feeling kind of down. This weight I want to lose and keep off is driving me crazy. I know it is due to age & perhaps hypothyroidism. It is a long road to recovery as my Dr has explained to me and advised I should not get so discouraged. I just want to get there and move on. I keep waiting. I'll buy new clothes once I lose the weight, I'll go to the beach once I lose weight, the list goes on but then I read somewhere to remember…Continue
I have just been so overwhelmed for so long with everything I just can't seem to get back on track.
Its so depressing and stressful taking care of my husband while going thru cancer. Just seems so unfair that people have to go through this. While at this time he feels good helps alot and we try to not think of it but he has been doing weekly treatments since November so it's something that is always there on our minds.
How is a person supposed to be a wife, mom, caregiver etc…Continue
Okay so I've been a member here for years now I've been battling my weight since after the birth of my first daughter and she is 16. I have lost down to the 130 range on a few occasions and fairly quickly gained some or all of the weight back. Every time I think it's different and that I've learned more and that it won't happen again, until it does. So here I am up about 15 lbs from where I was in January! I'm disgusted how fast I gained but, I'm glad I didn't go back to square one. I…Continue
Heck ... I don't even beleive me!
I just registered to R U N a 5K with two of my Avon Walk training partners. Holy cow, what have I done???? I am still in shock, that I actually registered ... like signed up, paid the money and all. .... NO REFUND!
So after my second Avon Walk for Breast Cancer (39.3 Miles) in October my friends and I will be participating in the Disney Family Fun Run in January 2015. After which, one gals' husband will be competing in…Continue
I was not feeling well last week. Several things went wrong. My miles are down to about 1/2 and they will be down again this week due to a race I am doing on the weekend I am trying not to overdo it before then. I am in a low motivation state. I gained a pound last week instead of lost.
So we found out that my body is accepting full doses of the chemo and won't have to be split...
So I was cut from the 8 treatments they thought I might have to do down to 4!!! Can you whoop, whoop with me...do a little happy dance!!
Best news I heard this year...
So 3rd treatment was yesterday...only 1 more to go on May 9th...
I have an appointment with the radiologist on April 28th...to discuss the radiation...not sure on how long after chemo you can do…Continue
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Nikki and getting in shape has sadly never been a true priority for me. To be perfectly honest I was always about 10 counties away from dedication. I would start to eat right or work out and would quickly get discouraged and give up. I just wasn’t about that lifestyle. I would always give everything I had towards schoolwork, my job, and taking care of others. Somehow, I allowed my own health to take the…Continue
Ok, my own rules--but it seems like I NEVER have time to get here lately.
I am gaining weight back, slowly but surely. It needs to come off. I joined a long term diet bet (6 months!) to give me a bit of financial incentive.
Yesterday a coworker kindly brought in a treat. She served up these HUGE portions. Yikes! Oh well--that was yesterday.
Hope this week finds you all well.
