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
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.
The Husband… Read the rest of this post
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?
Many … Read the rest of this post
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.
Here are some qualities that describe me which are a result of being raised by a narcissistic mother:
What a crazy whirlwind of a week. 14 people in one house is enough to make your head spin. Haha. We had a great visit. I always love spending time with my family. I indulged too often and the scale is up--but it will be back down. No worries. I did make it to a WW meeting with my mom while I was there. She convinced two of her friends to join with her (she has been MANY times since before I was even born). She's working hard to encourage her friends and it is helping her stay on track too.…Continue
A quote from Karen Koenig in her blog post: What Does BMI Really Tell Us?
“What we can do to move toward health and longevity you already know how to do: eat mostly nutritious foods, drink plenty of water, get enough sleep, reduce stress and improve at handling it, stop smoking, don’t overdo it with alcohol, have strong connections with others, and go out there and find pleasure and meaning in life. When you’re doing…
This week has been a success! It helps that the scale shows a 7lb loss from last Wed. although I can’t help but feel it’s deceptive. That being said, I’m going to choose to trust that I’m doing the right things and keep on doing them!
I'm inching closer to where I was this winter and closer to my goal. So close to being back into the 130's and that's where I want to be. I was almost into the 120's when I lost me steam! I used MFP this week and I think that's exactly what I needed to make sure I was where I needed to be. And the result a whole pound! I've still yet to workout other than C25K and I only did that once this week. I know that I need to make the exercise a priority. I have been rocking the food prep once…Continue
Start Weight: 220
Current Weight: 217
Total loss: 3 lbs
My 1st week down and I saw a change on the scale! I was so excited for it i really tried this week to commit and i saw a pay off. I want to remember this feeling and commit to this week as well!
I think writing to other people who have gone through a lot of the same things I have has been extremely helpful! Thank you to the blog to lose community!!
Heres to hoping for another week of…Continue
Lots going on lately and I'll post about that when I have the time (hint: I retired!).
Just read a great article on Sparkpeople.com about boosting our self-esteem (http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/wellness_articles.asp?id=237)
And realized that in the past I didn't give myself credit for all the things I did that made a positive difference in my life and in others. But it was this last…Continue
I did not forget about you guys :) I just realized though that saying I will write here everyday and writing here everyday are 2 different things! So I will break it up to biweekly posts one on weigh day (Sundays,) And one of Wednesdays! That is much more manageable with every thing on my plate :)
While I have been away these past few days I have been having to say no to free food which is my least favorite (and secretly most favorite) activity. I work in a very generous office and…Continue
