Rough Week--#wycwyc NOW!

Ok. This week has been FUNKY. Ugh.I'm not making great food choices. I'm just hungry, hungry, hungry...but am I? And my exercise has been half-hearted. I could take time to piss & moan, but really I need this place to be intentional.I'm tired…See More

Asian-Inspired Spicy Cabbage and Turkey

Plate of Asian-Inspired Spicy Cabbage and Turkey
I took the boys to visit my mom this past weekend. As per usual (now you know where I get it from), she prepared a crap-ton of food. Every summer salad you can think including my favorite, Italian pasta salad, burgers, hot dogs, sausage, chicken, and our first corn on the cob of the season. Funny enough she bought even more food than she could prepare so she packed up a bag of fresh veggies for me to take home. “Will you eat a bag of coleslaw mix?” [...]

Avocado Egg Salad in Bell Pepper Cups

Avocado Egg Salad in Bell Pepper Cups
The California Avocado Commission just needs to hire me as a full time ambassador or something. We are currently working together on a post-per-month contract but I can’t help myself. I love coming up with new ways to eat avocados! (And it feels so weird saying that as a former avocado hater but it’s true). This morning I was staring at my last avocado, trying to figure out a new way to eat [...]

Green Pineapple Core and Coconut Smoothie

Finished Green Pineapple Core and Coconut Smoothie
I hate wasting food. I’m not Molly Ms. Perfect but I do normally try to do things like eating leftovers, using bones to make soup, and freezing aging fruit for recipes. I also love this bagged spinach trick and I even have freezer bags of vegetable scraps to use when I make stock. I have, however, gotten [...]

Portabello, Sausage, Kale and Spagetti Squash Skillet

Portabello, Sausage, Kale and Spagetti Squash Skillet
I’m finding my groove again with keeping fresh ingredients on hand for inspiration. This was yesterday’s lunch and I’m shocked how simple yet how delicious it was with only 5 ingredients! Sausage Roll: I’ve been keeping one of these on hand to add to eggs in the morning but I love how versatile it is. It’s great for single servings and portion control, too, because you just cut off what you need. Portabello Mushroom Caps: I go through phases with these. Every few months I’ll [...]

Whole Wheat Chocolate Breakfast Muffins

Finsihed Whole Wheat Chocolate Breakfast Muffins
On Mother’s Day I decided to whip up a batch of chocolate muffins. Of course I couldn’t just follow a recipe as written — where’s the fun in that? — so I dug online for one I could use as a starting point. The recipe I found was pretty typical and called for the addition of chocolate chips and chunks but I skipped all that. Instead, I focused on healthier ingredients that would make a hearty and satisfying breakfast. Mission accomplished. The [...]

Rough Week--#wycwyc NOW!

Posted by Shannon H. on May 28, 2015 at 9:25pm 1 Comment

Ok. This week has been FUNKY. Ugh.

I'm not making great food choices. I'm just hungry, hungry, hungry...but am I? And my exercise has been half-hearted. I could take time to piss & moan, but really I need this place to be intentional.

I'm tired right now. I'd love to just keep sitting on the couch and continue watching "My 600 lb life" (the irony...I know), but instead I'm going to get off my ass and do some weight lifting. That's the LEAST I can do. I might…


My Before After

Posted by Christy on May 28, 2015 at 7:16pm 1 Comment

After I had my first baby I knew I needed to make changes. I started taking pictures to document the process. I knew that it wasn't pretty, but it was going to get better and I was going to want to have proof along the way. This was my "before" picture that was taken a few weeks after I had my son (May 2012).…


Thought for Food

Posted by Eileen G. on May 27, 2015 at 5:36pm 6 Comments

Shannon H's blog post made me think.  And then think some more.  She posted about being brutally honest about the WHY of what we are doing here, individually, that is.  And she also posted about her future self, and imagining the actions of her future self and applying those actions to the here and now.

So I thought this:  If I could time-travel back, say, 5 years, and talk to my then-self, what would I say?  I would warn her, tell her that I was about to gain over 100 POUNDS over the…


May 27, 2015; birthday shopping...

Posted by Jackie Wilkes on May 27, 2015 at 9:08am 2 Comments

This morning I took my husband to work again (the sky is promising some quick thunderstorms). Yesterday just about wiped me ALL out. I did the laundry, ran some errands (got my walk in!), and tidied up the house, and by dinner time I was zonked! I blame pregnancy, but who knows :) We grilled yesterday. It wasn't the healthiest of meals, but not all of them are going to be. We had brats and corn on the cob. 

Today I plan on heading out to the store to get A.J. (husband) a birthday…


May 26, 2015; The first day of a new chapter

Posted by Jackie Wilkes on May 26, 2015 at 9:30am 4 Comments

Today my husband officially left for work and I am here in the house at my "new job". Actually, it was raining and we are a one car family, so I took him to work, but still...

I've got laundry going, called the internet company and got a $5 discount on our bill, and ate a healthy breakfast (2 eggs, fruit, and plain greek yogurt)! 

Hope everyone is having a good morning! I attempted to look for some exercise pants at Target yesterday (pregnancy pants) and had…


Weekly Update 5/25/15

Posted by Brenna on May 25, 2015 at 6:28pm 5 Comments

So I would definitely say that this week was a success.

Food- I made mostly good choices with the help of myfitnesspal I started calorie counting again it had been about 10 months since I had used the app and after seeing it pop up in various posts I thought I should start using it again. It's only been a few days but it seems to be going well.

Exercise- I did extremely well this week and was able to log 10.5 miles on runkeeper! That is definitely a personal best and I am…


Getting back into the swing of things

Posted by Jackie Wilkes on May 25, 2015 at 2:40pm 3 Comments

I'm at a point where I'm going to start to find a new normal. I had my last day of work on the 20th and will continue to stay home until the baby is born and then become a stay at home mom after that. I'm very much looking forward to the opportunity, but know it will come with it's own set of struggles! 

Today I have been pretty healthy! I had some plain greek yogurt with strawberries/blueberries, then a spinach salad with 2 eggs, carrots, and dressing for lunch. I added a peanut…


On Vacation

Posted by Eileen G. on May 24, 2015 at 11:54pm 4 Comments

I haven't been writing blog posts or commenting because I've been on vacation, woohoo!!  Our kids were coming in from out of town so my husband and I rented a 5 br / 4 bath house near Disney World.  It has a pool and jacuzzi so we have been spending a lot of time, enjoying the screened-in area out back!

Amazingly, I have stayed on plan for my food, totally within my carb limits!  It helps to have my son here with me and he is doing low-carb too, so I have been treating him to…


I've missed this!! A year later and I'm back...and expecting! :)

Posted by Jackie Wilkes on May 24, 2015 at 10:36pm 4 Comments

I came to Blog to Lose a long time ago. And before that I was a part of Weight Circles, which, from what I remember is what shifted over to this site in the first place! 

Anyway! It took me so many Google searches to remember the name of this site, and I am so happy to be back. It says I only have 7 old blog posts, but that's because I got married and changed my name/profile in 2013, so the hundreds of others I had under my maiden name aren't represented. 

I stopped using…

Last Week's Reflection

Body Image: Pretty good! Don't remember many "beating myself up" moments. When I lift weights I really start to feel better just because.

Fitness: Worked out 4/7 days + one SERIOUS gardening day. Like, seriously sweating, abs aching hard work hacking at grass sections to make a garden. Also, I started using a heart rate monitor when I workout. I love it…
