I made this twice last week, once with leftover roasted beets and a second time (because I liked it so much) with a can of beets. It’s such a simple salad but so satisfying in a fresh way. The creaminess of the avocado paired with crispness… Read the rest of this post
Shirataki Noodles, marketed as “Miracle” or “Skinny,” are a very low carbohydrate, low calorie, translucent, gelatinous noodle made from the konjac yam. They are largely composed of water and glucomannan,… Read the rest of this post
There are quite a few bloggers I admire from afar but only a handful I subscribe to. Snack Girl is one of them. Her site is full of fun simple food advice for those looking to eat a little healthier and a lot less processed.

The other night it was just me and the kids for dinner and I decided to get a little creative with the turkey cutlets I had defrosted.
I have been trying to keep avocados on hand for taco nights and because the 3-Year-Old can’t get enough… Read the rest of this post
I’ve been feverishly loading up on fresh veggies from the farm stand like they are going out of style because, well, they are!
I’ve already gotten the itch to experiment with pumpkin but I’m just not ready yet. Fall may be … Read the rest of this post
This are pretty mundane around these parts recently. We have our weekly routine and it seems to work for us, so that's what we do. Haha. That includes hitting the gym M/W/F for boot camp. So far, so good. I definitely can tell that I am not able to push myself like I used to, but that's ok. I do what I can and I listen to my body. If something hurts, I don't do it. If my heart rate gets too high, I slow down. The good news is that I am still able to keep up with most of the people in the…Continue
Undaunted by my lack of progress, I press on.
Positives: I have not had a drink for 48 days. I have become much more aware of the composition of what I put into my body (even though I still often make poor decisions - my new-found knowledge notwithstanding). I have continued to drink ice water as my beverage of choice. Sometimes I will treat my self to a diet Mountain Dew (so tasty, yes?) but that is the exception, where it had been the norm for most of my adult life.
Its a beautiful fall morning and great walking weather. My friend and I completed another 13.1 mile training walk -- time 4hr 9 min. (MVP says we burned 1151 calories) So we are being very consistent. Although my feet were screaming at me!!!! I better carry lots of advil/aleave and eat them like candy the weekend of the walk.
When I got home and ate a refuel breakfast - I checked my fundraising account. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was .60 over my goal. YAHOO! I…Continue
I really like sparkpeople.com - not so much for tracking my food (MFP does it for me) as for their articles.
Read this one today about stressing over weight loss...who hasn't been stressed over weight loss?
Just took this quiz and thought it was worth sharing:
Did arm workout today. My legs are sore still so I let them rest. I'm not feeling anything in my arms yet. Hopefully soon I'll feel it. My ass hurts a little still. I'm keeping jaywalking up. We've been walking at work so I get in two miles there. And at least one with the dogs and the rest I get just doing general work.
I went to acupuncture and I've now got buyers remorse. They went through my treatment plan and figured out the cost. It's 16 weeks of multiple appointments a…Continue
I did my strength training. I hurt everywhere! I did well with everything for the most part. It was all just hard enough. The only negative is the jumping Jack's. My knees aren't up to them at this point. I did them all but my knees have been mad all day long. So I think I'm going to change out the jumping Jack's. I'm either going to do modified one's that don't involve jumping or try a different exercise. My boyfriend suggested I try mountain climbers. But those may be just as bad on my…Continue
Just a few quick updates to keep myself a little bit accountable in some way.
I hit my first weight loss goal today. It wasn't a big goal just something to get me going. I started at 216.5, today I hit 209.6. I was aiming for 210. I'm happy and I set my next goal for 200. Tomorrow is my first day of strength training and my second acupuncture appointment. There may be a need to adjust my strength training exercises but I'll see tomorrow. I'll give it a go and if its too hard/easy I'll change some things up. For now I'm just happy about reaching my first goal.
I didn't get up for yoga this morning instead inspector and then did Pilates from home. Which is fine with me I'm still getting strength from Pilates as I would from yoga. Then I walked and found that my fitbit has been lying to me with regards to my mileage when I walk for exercise. I tend to walk faster so my stride length is different. I think my fitbit is having issues determining if I'm walking or run so it doesn't know what stride length to use. For today it's off by .75 miles. That's…Continue
