I had a vacation day to burn & today was the day. I woke up feeling like I caught a cold. It was windy & I thought of skipping out of my bike ride, but I did it anyway. It was cold. About 54 degrees and with the wind it was cold. I got in 15…See More

"It must be something going around today as I woke up this morning sneezing & blowing my nose. I felt really crappy but decided to take a bike ride anyway. It was cold but it sure cleared my head up. I hope you're feeling better soon."

Unintended Break

Took a little break from blogging, but not tracking.  So, it wasn't to blow my diet.  Nope.  I was sick.  For almost 5 days!  Terrible head cold and I just felt horrid.  I know I went over my diet cals due to the shot of amaretto I sipped each night…See More

Butternut Ginger Soup With a Side of Diet Tips

ginger butternut squash soup with shrimp
This weekend I made the most amazing, simple soup and it reminded me of all the little things I do day-to-day to help me feel in control of my diet. Before we go any further let me establish I despise the word “diet” when used to represent calorie restriction for a short period of time solely for the purpose of losing weight. Instead I use it to simply mean “what I eat,” which I happen to take fairly seriously. I say fairly because I [...]

Shrimp Tacos With Peanut Sauce

Shrimp Tacos with Peanut Sauce
This weekend I got back from our annual week at the shore, itching to cook something in my own kitchen that wasn’t pizza, hamburgers or cheesesteaks — the trifecta of beach food for us. I hit the grocery store after unpacking to restock the fridge and get some fresh food in the house. There happened to be shrimp on sale, which inspired me. Shrimp tacos sounded perfect,  a light, easy meal. To spice up the tacos I made a simple homemade peanut sauce using pantry ingredients I had [...]

Balsamic Beef With Zucchini

Bowl of Balsamic Beef with Zucchini
I am between summer trips at the moment so my kitchen has seen busier days. Last week I took the boys on our yearly mother-sons adventure (click here for photos and a  recap) and next week we head to the Jersey Shore for our annual week at the beach. I love summer! Right now I’m in my clean-out-the-fridge mode trying to use up perishables before we leave. The boys wanted burgers for dinner but I wasn’t in the mood. So I used [...]

Simple Oven-Roasted Brisket — My First!

My First Oven Roasted Brisket!
Cooking large cuts of meat isn’t something that came natural to me. Whole chickens, large roasts, even pork loins I used to find intimidating. I’m not sure why — in some ways they are easier to prepare than individual steaks or chops. Preheat the oven, pop them in, set a timer and boom! Dinner. They do require a bit more planning. You can’t just pull out a frozen brisket after work and have dinner on the table in an hour, which [...]

Slow Cooker Ginger Beef

Slow Cooker Ginger Beef
It’s been 3 weeks since my last post but I’m still alive, I swear! A few weeks ago I started consulting for a small tech firm and my days have been filled with programming learning modules. I’m also still managing the gym and last I checked, I have two kids running around this place somewhere. I kid. I kid. I’m busy but I’m finding the details of calculating specific nutritional information for my ideas more than my lack of time holding me back from posting more. My [...]

I had a vacation day to burn & today was the day. I woke up feeling like I caught a cold. It was windy & I thought of skipping out of my bike ride, but I did it anyway. It was cold. About 54 degrees and with the wind it was cold. I got in 15 miles and with the wind it was some work out. Yesterday I ran 6.2 miles. I got caught in the rain,but since it was 65 it didn't feel that bad either. I am thinking of signing up for a 10k October 8th. Not sure since I have not really wanted to race.… Continue

Unintended Break

Took a little break from blogging, but not tracking.  So, it wasn't to blow my diet.  Nope.  I was sick.  For almost 5 days!  Terrible head cold and I just felt horrid.  I know I went over my diet cals due to the shot of amaretto I sipped each night to try to keep from coughing.  It was really the only thing that helped.  I would have that after dinner, take my meds, then run the cool mist humidifier.  Then I could sleep.  :)…

Bad weigh in = Bad mood

Posted by Paula on September 24, 2016 at 9:21pm 0 Comments

I had a crap day. Been beating myself up for gaining weight. I HATE being fat. I don't want to gain anymore weight. I have to lose. Now that the self beating is over. I am going to change this crap. I signed up for a 5k. It is in October. The Haunted Hustle. It sounded like fun. No chip timing. I am planning to run to just run. I have my fitness watch so I can time myself but there is no "official" timing. I am still on the fence on doing a 10k the 2nd weekend in October. Part of me wants to… Continue

Scale went down again this morning. Looks like a bit more than a pound but i'll wait a day to make that call.  

Weekend is coming.  We are taking my parents to Claim Jumper on Sunday so I plan to download the menu before I go.  Whatever I order will be dinner and then lunch on Monday.  

The rest of the weekend I should get through without any issues because there are no big plans.

We will see.

Pilates Saturday morning.

Have a great weekend…

Scale remained the same

Posted by Robin on September 21, 2016 at 10:59am 1 Comment

Stayed in control yesterday with only a small slip up and the scale remains the same.

Plan for the day is a little beyond control but I will take it as it comes.

Work

Walk at lunch - maybe a salad from corner bakery or back to the office for my lean cuisine.

yogurt later and my graze snack

challenge will be dinner. Husband coming home from a fishing trip and I am uncertain if he wants to go out or stay in. I'll check in with him later then plan. Thinking of…

new dress

Posted by Robin on September 20, 2016 at 11:44am 3 Comments

When I awoke I was not hungry so skipped breakfast. I hear that is not good but even right now i am still not hungry.

Yesterday went well with food but i went from work to teaching and did not exercise. Spent my lunch hour doing a correction to the lesson plan.

Today's plan -

Walk at lunch then my lean cuisine (I like these); yogurt sometime today and my graze snack.

After work - pilates/yoga (whichever they are offering today)

Dinner may be a challenge but i'll…

Some good days.

Posted by Paula on September 19, 2016 at 10:27pm 1 Comment

I had a good day yesterday. I kept calories low & ran 5.5 miles. Today was another good calorie day & I got in a 15.5 mile bike ride in. I wasn't sure if I could as it was raining for part of the day & by 1:00 the sun came out and the trail was mostly dry. I have been so out of the groove lately. Not really sure why. I think I just get tired of all the calorie counting & planning. I just know it is something I have to do. Hope I can keep it up. I really need a good loss this… Continue

Good Weekend

Posted by Robin on September 19, 2016 at 11:29am 1 Comment

I had a good weekend both with eating and with exercise. I did miss my Yoga class but made up for it.

Went to the Angels game but planned ahead and brought my own food in - a sandwich. No hot dogs and no beer!

Down 2 to 168 and decreasing. Working toward one more by Friday.

Not working...

Posted by Jewlz on September 19, 2016 at 10:02am 2 Comments

Yikes...   I'm suffering here trying to find a way to keep up with the ol' blogs!  What I'm doing with it isn't working.  :/  Oh well, not the end of the world.  I'm still trying to figure this site out.  I'm just not sure if the overall blogging experience is working.  I'm not really feeling it.  But we shall see.  If I just disappear from here one day, it's not that I've given up on dieting, just on blogging. …
