Week 7 -stayed the same

My weight this morning is the same as last week (150.8)  but, every other time I've stepped on the scale I was up!  So seeing the same weight today was a happy thing!  I want to break into the 140's, hopefully in the next couple weeks!My stomach has…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 [...]

Week 7 -stayed the same

Posted by Erica on August 24, 2016 at 8:51am 0 Comments

My weight this morning is the same as last week (150.8)  but, every other time I've stepped on the scale I was up!  So seeing the same weight today was a happy thing!  I want to break into the 140's, hopefully in the next couple weeks!

My stomach has continued to be a problem.  Which means I don't want fruits and veggies and I just want carbs and soothing foods.  I haven't had much of an appetite but those foods being higher calorie I'm still where I should be calorie-wise (although…


Weekly Update - 8/20

Posted by Paula on August 20, 2016 at 9:27am 1 Comment

Weight - Up 0.2 pounds. Shocked as I have been eating so much this past week.

Exercise - Ran 21 miles. Biked 15.5 miles.

Food - Good choices, but this week I was so HUNGRY. Not sure what the heck it was about.

Mood - Feeling pretty good. Scared about the path this country is taking so I have been focusing more in my own world rather than globally.

Week 6 down -1.2! I've lost 6.7 in the last 6 weeks!!!! Yippee!!

So last week with my belly upset, I was concerned that I wouldn't lose or might even gain.  I wasn't eating much but then when I did eat it wasn't my usual healthy diet I wanted pretty much straight up carbs. Also I didn't get any walks or hikes in!   So I'm really glad to see a nice loss on the scale this week!     

Lots going on in the weeks before school starts.  Just trying to take in the most of the summer days that I can with my family!

I have some trips coming up in the…


August 16, 2016; lunch prep

Posted by Jackie on August 16, 2016 at 7:43am 2 Comments

Good morning! 

I've started meal prepping lunch this week! I have grilled chicken, brown rice, and vegetables available. I didn't put them all in ready to go containers due to lack of containers, but it's on my list of things to get! I'm hoping this is an easy way for me to grab a healthy lunch while my toddler runs around the house. haha 

So here's a question for you....

what are some afternoon snacks you enjoy?

Afternoon snack time I have a tendency…


Off to a good start

Posted by Paula on August 15, 2016 at 11:44pm 3 Comments

I am off to a good start this week. Yesterday I ran 8 1/4 miles yesterday. It is the longest distance I have run on a Sunday. Most of my runs are 4-6 miles, but I think it is good to push yourself every now & then. Today I got in a 15.5 miles bike ride. It was cooler & the wind was calm so it was like a perfect ride. I still struggle with food, but it is getting better. I have been holding steady for a while, so I need to really evaluate the diet & tweet it a bit. I still have my… Continue

Weight - Down 0.4 pounds.

Exercise - Ran 4 days. Even in this hot/humid weather I got in 19 miles. Slower of course.

Food - A bit of a struggle. Damn crackers & sun chips. I am a salt addict.

Mood - Happy to not be gaining weight & gradually learning to be more grateful.

Week 5 Lost -0.5

Posted by Erica on August 10, 2016 at 5:42pm 2 Comments

I've not felt great since Monday little appetite and on and off nauseous. Monday and Tuesday I didn't even eat half of the salad that I packed for work.  Today I was feeling much better until after lunch.  I'm not sure what is going on with me but when I do want to eat I want pure carbs, rice, oatmeal...bland carb-y foods.  I'm hoping that I feel better soon so I can get back to my normal eating!

Got some stuff done today regardless.  My daughter had her before school physical.  Then…


Where is everyone?

It finally cooled off a bit making running much more enjoyable. Got in a 6 miler this morning. It is the first time in a while that I felt that good. Running in humid weather really isn't any fun. Looking for a new race to try. Not sure ifi want to do another 10k or make it a 5k. Everyone must be really busy since it has been super quiet here. Hope to be reading posts soon.

Week 1 Again

Posted by Brittany on August 6, 2016 at 12:34pm 0 Comments

Ok so I'm almost done with my first week of my new eating healthy plan, I hate to use the term "diet" because it makes me feel worse so I use new eating healthy plan. This week has been pretty tough, lots of cravings that I have been trying hard to ignore and not always succeeding. My husband has been a good support for me but he can only do so much, as he only needs to loose a few pounds where as I need to loose much, much, much more. I'm happy that he's willing to help, that makes it easier.… Continue
