"Woot! Good job getting out there! I've found I enjoy the colder runs myself. Eventually you just push through and you're more proud of yourself for the effort. The coldest i've run in was 13 degrees. Keep up the good work!"

A Simple Tummy-Trouble Broth

A Simple Tummy Trouble Broth with ginger and lemon

I’m back from my trip to Vegas (where I ran my second marathon!!) with a simple broth recipe. Truth be told, my stomach hasn’t been right for days. I’m not sure if it’s the food I ate while traveling, the run or a combination… Read the rest of this post »»

The Quintessential Fall Chili with Beef and Sweet Potatoes -- Done

I have a love-love relationship with chili. I can’t get enough! I even have a category devoted it – Chili-like ideas.

Unfortunately, I’m trapped in a family who hates it. It’s like I’m living in my own personal… Read the rest of this post »»

It’s soup season and I’m loving it! For as much I declare myself a summer girl I must admit I love the change in temperature and the comfort food that comes along with it.

Cooking With Kids: Sweet Chicken Legs With Potatoes and Peas

Teaching Kids How to Cook: Sweet Chicken Legs with Potatoes and Peas

I had a different recipe planned today, but then I got the bright idea of recording our dinner adventure last night.

A few weeks ago I assigned The 9-Year-Old one night a week to cook dinner.  He’s far from able to do it by himself, but this… Read the rest of this post »»

I needed to complete day 3 of week 2 of my "Run for God" 5K challenge.  My friend and I were suppose to meet last night to get in our third (my 4th) run for the week.  Only, she txtd me to let me know that she had been hit with the stomach bug that has been going around.  So I decided in my mind that I would take off Friday, since I ran Wed and Thursday, and run on Saturday morning.  I figured it would be warmer and a great way to get the day going.

Only I was wrong.  When I woke up…


Calorie Count or Not to Calorie count..that is the question

Posted by Paula on November 22, 2014 at 9:35am 5 Comments

I got back on the scale this week. No loss. I brought the scale back, is it time to start calorie counting again? I eat every little processed foods so I do not have the convience of the calories being listed on the label. I have a food scale and weighed everything. Save the "use Fitness Pal" as those tend not to be very accurate as I came to find out. So every meal with all the math drove me batty 3 times a day, 7 days a week. Especially when I was creating meals. Weighing an apple is one…


Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

I mean look at this guy.  You would never know just by looking at this handsome devil that he actually has some sort of crazy super powers to wreak havoc on my blood sugar.  I was able to successfully go through one full day without him but I just couldn't ignore him on the second day. …


Keeping My Word

Posted by LindaB on November 20, 2014 at 9:30pm 4 Comments

This is an accountability post.

Last night when I got home from church, I did get on the treadmill and do Week 2 / Day 2 of Run for God.  (I hate that its sideways - but then again, I can be a little off at times.)  Note to self:  Never drink your last cup of coffee at 6pm, go to church, and then get on a treadmill and run/walk for 30 minutes thirty minutes before your bedtime and expect to sleep peacefully.  It doesn't work very well.  By the way, ignore the dust you see on…


Cold Stinking Turkey

Posted by Lynn on November 20, 2014 at 5:30pm 2 Comments

That's it.  I'm off the juice (Coke-a-Cola).  OK.  I mean all soda.  For good this time.  No transition period.  No weaning off it.  Cold.  Stinking.  Turkey.  I know that although you have been there to support me without judgment in my most darkest hours you are just no good for me.  In fact, you are slowly killing me with every sip I take.  So goodbye dear friend.  May we never meet again.

Just a quick little share before bed. I did run this morning and I felt great. I ran the whole thing and I did it in 11min 43sec. My fastest mile time as an adult. I'm pretty proud. And even better I could have kept going if I had the time but I had to get back to have time to walk my other dog that can't run. So I shaved a full 31 sec off my run time from last Friday :-) tomorrow is easy day arm workout and ab challenge. I'm exhausted game night always has me up late and while I expect to…


Time to Lock and Load Ladies!

Posted by LindaB on November 19, 2014 at 5:30pm 3 Comments

The time has come for me to put up or shut up.  This messing around and making choices that I know will make me feel bad later is over.  And when I say "make me feel bad" - I am not talking about the "beat yourself up" guilt trip we send ourselves on.  I'm talking about the choices that make me PHYSICALLY feel like a piece of crap.  Like eating white potatoes when I know they will make me feel like a slug.  Choosing a gooey dessert when I've eaten my fair share of food ... the sugar high and…


quick little post

Posted by Ovelia19 on November 18, 2014 at 9:30pm 1 Comment

I did my leg workout this morning despite my struggle to get out of bed I was comfy and warm. Today was rest day for my ab challenge but I did walk my two miles at work getting my full 10k steps in. Tomorrow weather permitting ie no wind or snow/heavy rain I'll be running and then walking the dogs. I'm also very happy about my chiropractic appointment tomorrow. I've needed an adjustment for a while and I'll feel better after for sure.

Other than that nothing happening I'm going to bed…


Would love to tell you I am so dissappointed in myself but......

Posted by Dee on November 18, 2014 at 9:30am 3 Comments

I am not.

I am trying very hard to do the right things for myself when it comes to exercise and the food choices I make but sometimes I just mess up and I have decided that sometimes thats just going to have to be ok for now. I have a whirlwind of things going on right now and it's so easy to make those unhealthy choices. Just sayin'!

I know I can make every excuse in the world for the decisions I make but I have also discovered along the way that they are my decisions and no…
