Sorry I’ve been MIA — I was scoping out hotels for FitBloggin and bumming around Denver with my friend Jen — Click here to see our fun travel video.
Every time I travel I don’t realize how much I miss my kitchen until… Read the rest of this post
You’re going to either think I’m a genius or just plain weird after this one.
The week before thanksgiving I was craving something chocolate. I was moments from ripping open a bag of chocolate chips I bought for holiday baking when… Read the rest of this post
I had the most amazing few days with a house full of family and a fridge full of food. This year I waited until the last possible minute to prepare for the holiday. I let the fridge go almost bare and then Wednesday I filled… Read the rest of this post
I’m convinced everyone is completely underestimating beets. Three years ago I tried roasting my first ever batch and fell in love. Before then I just thought my mom was crazy for eating them out of the can. They were always just “gross”… Read the rest of this post
Over the few years I’ve gotten familiar with greens — kale, collards, spinach, and chard. These are completely new additions to my diet. I have no memories of mom buying, cooking or eating greens as a child. I had no point of reference… Read the rest of this post
Made it through the Departmental luncheon on many levels today. We went to a great Cuban restaurant and I managed to make wise choices. Ropa Viejas (Old Clothes - LOL) hold the beans and rice - got sweet plantains instead. Everything was so good. Skip on the dessert.
I have been doing ok with my eating lately. My struggle has been with cutting back on wine. Since I moved to Alaska this summer I have noticed that I have grown increasingly fluffy despite eating decently and exercising daily. The only thing I had been doing differently was drinking wine...every night. It doesn't seem like much but those empty calories sure do add up! I'm trying to only drink wine on weekends or when we go out and I've done well this week. Unfortunately I think I will…Continue
I appreciate all the support from you all yesterday! I'm really struggling a bit with the scale number today. I'm not a daily weigh-er. I normally weight 2x a week, Mon & Wed.
But today I was just dying to see if I registered a loss since my bathroom habits weren't usual yesterday. I know I probably shouldn't have but because I didn't see a change yesterday I was really thinking I'd see it today and I was up by a half pound! WTH??? I should also note that my scale only goes…Continue
Day 2a has been good. Got more water in today but need to drink more. No exercise. It has been a busy day with lots of stuff. I had a chiropractic appointment after work today. I'd tell you that I didn't want to put myself out of line just after getting adjusted ... but I'd be lying. I was just lazy. Food wise has been on target. MVP says that I left 92 calories on the table. I'm sure once I really get rolling, I will not be leaving calories on the…Continue
My last post was exactly two months ago. Wow.
The amount that I post is fairly reflective of how well I am doing taking care of my diet. Exercise, as always, is still good. Well, the running part. I have lots of goals set up for 2014. I need to work on strength and flexibility. I think it's been 7 months since I did any strength training. But walking and running has gone well- I peaked at 85 miles for the month of October, and typically I get 60 miles. I am hoping to hit 100 miles…Continue
Well, that didn't take long. I like Dan (the new trainer) more already! Can you tell we did heavy lifting today? I'm in a much better mood. Class was back to being hard today. He made some comment about us looking like we were whipped and I just smiled and said "Good! That's the way we like it. If we are complaining, you're doing it right" We both laughed and I hope that goes to show that we like the challenge! He also paid much more attention to correct form today. I typically don't like…Continue
Are you looking for a reason to get up off the couch? Are you trying to remotivate yourself? Have you just lost interest in exercise?
I'm totally excited that a new fitness based smart phone game has been released. I just downloaded it and haven't started playing yet so I can't give you any particulars, but it is from the developers of my beloved "Zombie, Run!".
Here is the link to The Walk Game. It…Continue
I am up exactly 1 lb this week. I hate that I am gonna miss out on 15 points for the skinny snowman challenge this week. However, I feel good! Not so great about the pound, but I feel more comfortable in my clothes again, and the mirror doesn’t make me want to cry or avoid it like dog poo on the running trails. Plus looking back over my weight loss/measurement tracker I realized my weight gets so weird when I try to break into a new ‘decade’ and I am right on the cusp of new one. My body…Continue
So yeah, I guess you could say that I'm a little bit annoyed. TMI but I'm thinking that I would have had a loss if I went to the bathroom before wi. But no...
I've been eating on target I even broke out my kitchen scale this week to make sure that I haven't been unconsciously overdoing portion sizes. I've actually been quite accurate, so that's not the issue. I've been regular about my workouts. I'm really thinking that either my pizza outing screwed me up this week or I might…Continue
Restart day was a success! Even with celebrating my son's 23rd birthday.
He decided that he wanted to go to Olive Garden and at first I wanted to say not just NO, but Hell no! But being the great mom that I'd love to think that I am (HA); I decided to suck it up and be a big girl and make wise choices. I need to learn boundaries even if it is on Day 1a.
I resisted the devil ... I mean breadsticks. Tossed my croutons out of the salad and asked for no cheese. I picked the…Continue
