Packing the 2-year-old’s lunch is becoming more and more of a challenge, so I decided to go back to one of his first loves: Avocado.
This kid will jam chunks of avocado in… Read the rest of this post
When my mom sees this recipe she may literally laugh out loud. As a child I declared my hate of both mushrooms and onions more times than I can count!
My 7-year-old is the same as I was, making faces, sticking his tongue out and looking at them in disgust.… Read the rest of this post
Every time I hear people say it takes too much time or money to eat healthier/lighter I cringe. Sure it CAN be but there are plenty of ways to make small changes to your diet that can be done on a budget and made just as fast as waiting in a drive-thru… Read the rest of this post
Out of the blue The 7 Year-Old asked if I would buy him bagels. He said… Read the rest of this post
With a ripe pineapple aging on the counter and 2 kids who refuse to eat it, I had to come up with something fast. I’m always shocked how yummy a smoothie can be with minimal ingredients. There’s no need for protein powder or mixes. … Read the rest of this post
So yesterday was our 13 year wedding Anniversary! We stayed home and grilled tuna steaks and had stir fry veggies and brown rice. Our older daughter decided to surprise us with brownies and chocolate dipped strawberries. I passed on the brownies and had 2 dipped berries instead. Yummy!
I'm all geared up for 12 weeks of Live Fit. I don't have a gym membership and I'd prefer to keep it that way, for now. We do live close to a Planet Fitness which is pretty cheap,so I could afford…Continue

I have not made that Dr appointment. Actually I have only been to a Dr once in the last 2 years. I was not raised to go regularly and frankly I don't really want to face that scale number. Isn't that insane? I know what it is, but it feels like if I go, my weight gain isn't my own dirty little secret. That I am a failure. That the Doc will think it is simply a case of overeating not something more serious. I wonder if I could go to…Continue
Well, its been a bumpy road back in the saddle. All intentions of restarting May 1 fell by the wayside with the unexpected death of my step-father and the crazy aftermath with step-siblings. Soooo crazy. But behind me know.
Was suppose to start back walking yesterday, but the rain and a sinus infection pushed us to today.
Still have the sinus infection, can't breath - but I was determined to go walk with my walking buddy who has been patiently waiting for me. Even though…Continue
Another week down. Another 0.2 pounds gone. Nothing to write home about, but considering that I thought I might gain this week, I'll take it. I had way more important things than the scale going on this week :)
Things I am proud of this week:
1. I ran my first ever 5k!
2. I saw several pictures of myself this week with no double chin! I have always had (and will probably always have) a…Continue
Day three of blogtolose.
Went for a walk with my sister this morning before it got too hot outside. We went to starbucks and picked up some ice tea and had a nice chat on the way back home. Gym tonight after work! Yay upper body day! Also, had to put new posts up on Rachel Rebelling. 2 blogs are a lot to keep up with. It's a good thing that I have a sassy mouth and a lot to say.
I'm seriously struggling with the eating part of this. All I want is some mother…Continue
This weekend was CRAZY! It was good, but busy and this is the first time I'm getting to get on the computer since Friday. Friday night I went to A.J.'s, then we headed to my parent's house for my sister's birthday. Sunday morning we went on a 5 mile hike on a trail near us. Very tiring! Good exercise though. :) Later that afternoon we went to the winery my sister wanted to go to for her birthday. I love winery atmospheres. It's like the world just slows down a little. So peaceful! After the…Continue
I am going to try to make this far from dramatic and tearful as I do not seek pity nor will I sit here and play the victim. Growing up I was extremely athletic attending competitive cheerleading and gymnastic practices literally 6 days a week for about 2-3 hours each day. Having been able to eat literally whatever I wanted and constantly saying “I don’t understand why people struggle with weight. I eat how I please and stay fit” I found myself in that youthful teenage girl state where my one…Continue
