My Year in Review - 11/27

Most people start their year January 1st, but for me it is the end of November. The reason being is it was last November when I went to a doctor. Something I did not do for many reasons, but the major one is because I did not want to get on the…See More

Leftover Thanksgiving Hash

Leftover Thanksgiving Hash
I am ALL about the leftovers this week. Every year Thanksgiving reminds me how awesome it is to cook a big meal and reap the benefits of leftovers. This morning I made myself a simple hash for breakfast. I know everyone makes different sides and has different leftovers so you may not be able to make exactly this but the idea is the same: throw your favorites in a skillet, pull it together with some egg and enjoy. My combo was an amazing [...]

Lentil Soup With Ground Turkey and Kale

Lentil Soup with Ground Turkey and Kale
Inspired by two “pantry” items, I whipped up an amazing soup yesterday! First, the pink lentils were an Aldi find. I’ve never seen them before and I felt compelled to pick up a bag. The frozen kale was on sale a few weeks back and I thought it was a good idea to keep a bag or two in stock for those times I run low on fresh ingredients, which has been happening a lot more since I started working [...]

A ‘Lighter’ Pumpkin Pie My Husband Actually Enjoyed!

Slice of pumpkin pie
Many of you know me and my can’t-follow-a-recipe ways. It’s just not in my DNA to cook something EXACTLY the way someone tells me. I have to put my spin on it, make it my own and go with the flow. This is why I rarely make the same thing twice the same exact way. This is why I’d rather keep a stocked pantry than shop for specific dishes. And this is why I don’t really enjoy traditional baking. Baking is [...]

5-ingredient Ginger-Spiced Pumpkin Soup

finished Ginger spiced pumpkin soup
I had this cute little pumpkin sitting on my counter since Evan’s field trip to the farm a couple of weeks ago. We decided to get him a bigger one for jack-o-lantern making so Ryan labeled this one “food.” I pondered what to do with it for a few days and then it hit me: soup! I thought about roasting the pumpkin first but that seemed too daunting. Instead I simply boiled it in some homemade broth and pureed it. It took a lot [...]

Turkey, Collard Green and Pinto Bean Chili

Turkey, Collard Green and Pinto Bean Chili
If you’ve been following along for some time you know I’m a one-pot fanatic. The crockpot is my friend. I love a big bowl of things like chili or stew. I even devoted a whole category on the blog to “Chili-Like Ideas” because I don’t know how else to categorize my one-pot adventures. On the other hand, the family aren’t big fans and The Husband is the worst of them all! So when he’s away I always use it as an [...]

My Year in Review - 11/27

Posted by Paula on November 27, 2015 at 11:24pm 0 Comments

Most people start their year January 1st, but for me it is the end of November. The reason being is it was last November when I went to a doctor. Something I did not do for many reasons, but the major one is because I did not want to get on the scale. I had not been on a scale for quite a long time, but I had to go to the doctor since I was sick. Long story short, I weighed more than I wanted to. it was at that point I decided I needed to get serious. It has been SLOW, but I am moving forward.… Continue

one of those weeks:( help

Posted by Becky Trejo on November 26, 2015 at 5:03am 3 Comments

ya ever have those weeks where you think your doing really good and the scale is going wrong direction?

Well this is one of those. of course it's that time of month but I'm in control of food, I have a sick kid so not maybe doing as much activity. But it pissed me off cause I'm 7 pounds away from hitting one of my big goals of being under or even at 200 by the new year:( I'm so close but this is not looking great on the scale right now.

for your weight what are you guys eating for…


Lark, a new app for food and fitness motivation

Posted by Dee on November 23, 2015 at 2:56pm 1 Comment

A friend of mine mentioned she was using a new app called Lark. As she described it, I decided I'd like to give it a try. It's free while in "beta mode". So far, I like it. I've used it for a whole week now. 

I've had a dilemma for awhile now, in that I realize I do better on my weight and fitness goals when I use trackers... but I get tired of using trackers. Yet whenever I do, my performance and diligence improves. I figured out that tracking is just how I keep my radar on my health…


Lark and Me

This post just displays how the app Lark interacts with me about my daily food and fitness choices. It goes with my fuller description of the app in this post. …


So far this is working for me.

7. I have been losing a minimum of 1lb per week.

Weight - Down 1.4 pounds. Hope it continues

Exercise - got on the treadmill 6 days. It is different from running outside, but I will keep at it.

Food - making better choices. Learning about true hunger & dealing with it.

Mood - Making effort to see things in a different light. Sometimes things don't look so bad through different perspective

One week review and a cool motivational blog post

Posted by Dee on November 18, 2015 at 7:36pm 1 Comment

So... on November 6 I set some goals for the week of 11/9-11/15. A quick review of how I did: yikes, I blew it! 

I didn't really log carefully either... I vaguely recall being busy and skipping meals then eating crap when I got home. A lot like this week is going. 

I did no walking home; I think I did cook and bring leftovers once. A lot of skipped breakfasts. Sigh. This process does not proceed in a straight line. And I actually only worked out once, instead of getting more…


Update 11-17-15

I have tried to put posts on here a few times with my phone but then when I go to post it, it gives me a website error then I'm like screw it I wrote all that now it's gone:( Hoping this one works.

Wheat Free Week 3

Posted by Flipper B on November 17, 2015 at 2:24pm 4 Comments

Week 3? or is it week 4? All I know is I feel better. My skin is clearer. I am sleeping better and I am having less depressive thoughts and I am not crashing in the afternoons anymore. I also am waking up without an alarm and I have lost 4lbs. But I have had withdrawal symptoms which are not so fun. But it is easier every day. The force of habit is the worst part but I am learning to deal with it.

I resisted cronuts at a group run on Saturday. That was one of the hardest things I… Continue
