loss and gain.

I got to my lowest weight whilst training for a 50k then for some reason I put on 8lbs and cant get it off. My race is in 2 weeks. I still was not at goal weight but I was close to a milestone like 2lbs close! I feel depressed and ashamed and now I…See More

Ryan’s Roasted Potatoes

Ryan's Roasted Potatoes on Plate

I always find it funny when my kids don’t like things I LOVED as a kid. It’s the Murphy’s Law of parenting, just like when they sleep in the only day you need to leave early or decide they actually do need to use the potty 5 minutes… Read the rest of this post »»

Peppery Roasted Butternut Squash Soup With Bacon

Peppery Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Bacon Close Up

Last weekend I roasted a butternut squash with no real plans but who needs them? Roasted butternut squash is liquid gold! I can enjoy it simply pureed with a pinch of salt. It really doesn’t need much more than that!

Of course I’m … Read the rest of this post »»

Sriracha-Dressed Bacon Cheeseburger Salad

A Sriracha Dressed Bacon Cheeseburger Salad on Plate

Last night was burger night at my house. You’d think total crowd pleaser, right?

Well, The 3-Year-Old thinks the burger on the bun “ruins” it. So he removes the patty, devours the bun, and then needs to be coaxed to take a bite… Read the rest of this post »»

Single Serve, Flourless Chocolate Mug Cake

Bite of the Single Serve, Flour-less Chocolate Mug Cake

I’ve been slowly getting rid of all store-bought junk in my pantry. It’s been taking years with my junk-food eating husband but I finally have him down to just a few snacks, most of which he hides in his home office.

My intentions … Read the rest of this post »»

Spatchcock Chicken With Maple Spiced Sweet Potatoes

Spatchcock Chicken with Maple Spiced Sweet Potatoes Step 6

Cooking whole chickens did not come natural to me. Quite frankly, they intimidate me and sometimes still do.

However, from an economical standpoint they are normally always your best bet. Usually whole chickens are much cheaper per pound … Read the rest of this post »»

Posted by Flipper B on October 21, 2014 at 9:15am 0 Comments

I got to my lowest weight whilst training for a 50k then for some reason I put on 8lbs and cant get it off. My race is in 2 weeks. I still was not at goal weight but I was close to a milestone like 2lbs close! I feel depressed and ashamed and now I can't wait till my race is over so I can try a different type of training to see if I can shock my body into losing again. I have like 40-50lbs to goal I have lost about 87. I hate the process I hate how long it takes I hate not being where I want…


Colonoscopy Day!! Yippee!!

Posted by Donna on October 21, 2014 at 6:07am 0 Comments

Ok, today I will be the lucky recipient of  a colonoscopy.  I know this is probably a very strange comment but I don't mind this procedure.  My stomach is empty, I have HAD to not eat ... how come we can do a colonoscopy prep, not eat for 32 hours, and manage but we can't resist that temptation for the bagel or donut at work or that 'sliver' of pie for dessert?  Why, when we have to resist and eat NOTHING we can do it? 

I am looking at…


Soon to be 55

Posted by Donna on October 20, 2014 at 10:37pm 1 Comment

Today I started my 'diet' again.  I will be 55 in a little less than two weeks and realized that this will likely be my last chance to get it right.  Yo yo dieting has been my modus operandi.  I always said I know how to lose weight, I just don't know how to keep it off.  I have had 5-6 iterations of this throughout my life - losing weight, vowing to never let myself get uncomfortable weight-wise again...only to succumb to the temptations out there and give in.  The reasons are many and I…


Girls' Weekend

Posted by Christy on October 20, 2014 at 10:22pm 0 Comments

Thanks to my awesome husband I was able to get away for 4 glorious days with my girlfriends while he stayed home and held down the fort with the little guy. It was the perfect long weekend getaway. We went to a cute little town about 2 hours away and rented out a cabin. We stayed up late giggling, telling stories, and watching girly movies. We slept in without being woken up by crying kids or nagging alarm clocks. We lazily got ready, had breakfast at the cabin, and moved on our own…


Three Years Ago Today

Posted by MarthaG on October 19, 2014 at 9:01pm 0 Comments

Wow! Three years ago today I was in the kitchen listening to the radio (after a night of too much wine and food) and heard a program that said if you drink you shouldn't be drinking every day.  That was a big slap across the head!  Yikes. I had wine almost every day and I was too fat (222 pounds at 5'8") and I was 61 1/2 and not getting any younger. That day I committed to stop drinking during the week (hey! there is only so much a girl can do) and to pay attention to my tracking AND to…


I can not exercise away a bad diet + other things I have learned

Posted by Paula on October 19, 2014 at 7:50pm 1 Comment

I realize I can not exercise a bad diet away. I have continued with my exercise. My husband got me to get the bike out of the basement and on the bike trail this summer. We rode 12 miles 5-6 days a week. I did not lose weight. I did get my thyroid tested and it was normal. Hmm. I did have several other tests done too. An EKG showed I have a very slow beating heart. Dr felt it was due to all the exercise I do. A terrible & painful cough was thought to be asthma, but a breathing test…


6 Days Away ....

Posted by LindaB on October 17, 2014 at 7:18pm 2 Comments

In just 6 days, I will venture on my second 39.3 mile walk to benefit Breast Cancer.  The closer it gets, the more excited I get.  Last week, I can honestly say that I was almost dreading it.  Knowing how exhausted and fatigued my body would be.  How my feet will hurt for almost a week.  .... but then I think about it.  Those little aches and pains are absolutely nothing compared to what someone with the disease has to face.

With that.  I walked 5 miles last night and plan my last…

Anyone using this? Just got it so far love it although seems to be over estimating calories burned.

Learning the Ropes

Posted by Christy on October 15, 2014 at 3:04pm 2 Comments

I'm getting settled into the Y and learning all the ins and outs. It feels so strange to be the new kid again after having been at the same gym for 2 years. The Y also has a much bigger feel to it with lots more people in classes and more staff. It will take me awhile to feel like I know people and belong, but I think it will be a good change.

I tried out a bootcamp class yesterday. It was a good class and I enjoyed it, but it is nothing like I am used to. There were 25-30…


I suck!

Posted by LindaB on October 14, 2014 at 5:00pm 6 Comments

I may suck right now, but that doesn't mean that it has to stay that way.  I know, I know ... here she goes again. 

I believe that yesterday somewhere in the day I actually reached my breaking point.....I started back on my DIET at dinner time. Yup.  Who says, you have to start on a Monday?  Who says you have to start with the first meal of the day?  Who says when you have hit the WALL absolutely decide when you've had enough?

I have been carrying my meals to work every day for…
