"I love when the hard work shows. I did 21 Day Fix and I really liked it. The fact that there is a different DVD each day keep the boredom from setting in. Are you also following the meal plan with the containers? I liked them for potion control."

Hotel Cooking Meal 3: Black Beans and Yellow Squash With Brown Rice and Quinoa

I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but cooking in the hotel room is fun! Well, maybe it’s fun because anything I cook my mom actually eats and enjoys, which is a stark difference than cooking for two young boys and a picky husband. As a reminder (or if you missed the first post in this series), I’m in Ohio on some family business and did a grocery store trip to stock our hotel room for three meals. Total cost for [...]

Hotel Cooking Meal 2: Beef Stew With Sweet Potatoes, Mushrooms and Smashed Garlic

Hotel Cooking Meal: Beef Stew with Sweet Potatoes, Mushrooms and Smashed Garlic
We had a little help for our second meal in the hotel and it was a smashing success! May I introduce my Great Aunt Marie’s Crock Pot… I have fond memories of this old girl keeping my Aunt Marie’s wimpies (sloppy joes) warm during her Christmas Eve parties. It still works great, if not better, than my newer slow cooker. It’s HUGE and low seems to be “lower” than I’m used to, not causing anything to burn or stick to the bottom. For our second hotel meal I [...]

Hotel Cooking Meal 1: Turkey Sausage and Vegetables Over Rice

Hello from Beavercreek, Ohio! I’m camping out here for a couple of weeks helping my mom train my niece’s service dog. We’ve got a hotel room with a small kitchen and have committed to cooking more instead of eating out so much. It’s cheaper, healthier and easy! Well, at least that’s what I want to show. (Notice I didn’t say easIER but it is easy.) This afternoon we stopped at Aldi and picked up enough food for 3 complete meals. Total cost: $26.21 On [...]

Steel-Cut Oat Breakfast Recovery Smoothie

Steel Cut Breakfast Recovery Smoothie
Every morning, bright and early you can find me at the gym. I lift heavy, hang out with the morning crew and get my sweat on. It’s ingrained now. I can’t imagine starting my day any other way. I used to have time to make breakfast for myself when I got home. Then as the kids got older and time got tighter, I was forced to give one of those powdered recovery shakes a try. It was OK, but I’d rather get my [...]

Simple Quinoa With Strawberries

Quinoa with Strawberries
A few days before I left for vacation — click here if you want to see the adventure I took with the boys! — I spatchcocked a whole chicken and cooked it on the grill. Cleaning up I couldn’t throw away the bones. I just couldn’t. So I grabbed a pot, pulled out some frozen celery hearts (I freeze scraps now specifically for this) and decided to make stock. The only problem: my [...]

Weight - Down 1.4 pounds

Mood - Depressed & frustrated.

Food - Still eating too much. I am trying the OA eating plan. It is a good time since tomorrow is 9/1. For some reason I like to start fresh. The beginning of the month is a great start.

Exercise - the only consistent thing I am doing for my health.

Today is the Day

Posted by keepinmyheadup on August 30, 2015 at 11:30am 1 Comment

Ugh!!! Am getting nowhere fast. I won't even get on the scale because I'm don't want to know if I have crossed into the next decade. I have excuses galore, so many reasons why I "can't", "didn't", "couldn't", etc. None of them are valid (although they trick me into thinking they are, at the time!). The longer I procrastinate on getting started, the deeper I am digging myself into a hole, and the more I put my health at risk, the worse I feel, and so on, and so on......

So, I have to…


Love good results when working hard!!!

Posted by Becky Trejo on August 29, 2015 at 10:51pm 4 Comments

Well I have been working on my weight a long long time. Today at weight watchers meeting I hit a couple goals. 16 weeks of attending meetiNgs (I have been going since end of February/beginning of March but missed a few or was struggling and didn't go), hit my 10% and also hit 25 pounds GONE!!!!!

This really helps to stay motivated when you see good results. I'm really liking the exercise dvd 21 day fix its what I needed to change things up. -3.2 pounds this week. I bought myself some 6 lb… Continue

Boot Camp

Posted by Lynn on August 29, 2015 at 7:56am 0 Comments

My husband just left for work for the next five days and I am putting myself through a STRICT boot camp.  I have already given up soda ~ which is truly the most difficult thing for me ~ but I have not been motivated to take the next step in my journey yet. 

Today that changes.  For the next five days I am eating a little something for breakfast, hitting the gym, and eating in.  Those are some big changes for me... I never eat anything until late in the day, having the kids…

My Y just added a new class and I'm loving it. It is half cardio spin (which I have never tried before) and half strength (tabata type) workout. The spin part is definitely something I am going to have to work on. It is a completely different kind of workout than I have ever done before. My quads are burning the whole time and I have a hard time when we have to stand for extended periods. The strength portion is a lot more what I am used to. We use resistance bands, agility ladder, and body…

I have a plan

Posted by Paula on August 26, 2015 at 11:49pm 2 Comments

I have been floundering. I am sick & tired of where I am at. A good friend recommended OA. It is simple & doable. Frankly I have an eating issue and I want to get over it. It starts with a 30 day program. I want to do a bit more preparing & I like to have a starting line. It is almost the 1st of August so I am going to start then. I am going to try to post for each of those 30 days. Has anyone here followed this diet? Feed back please if you have.

Beginning again

Posted by Ana on August 25, 2015 at 2:49pm 1 Comment

I have always been struggling with my weight. It's been an item on my list of things to take care of for quite some time not but I don't seem to get to it. In 2013 I Decided to join a dieting program which worked, I lost 40 lbs. the problem was that it wasn't practical. It was one of those that said you didn't have to work out and it restricted my food enormously that when I started eating again and on my own I gained most of it back.

So here I am trying to start over but in a more… Continue

Sacrifice Is a Necessary Evil

Posted by Flipper B on August 25, 2015 at 11:20am 3 Comments

I have been thinking a lot about sacrifice.  In order to accomplish this monumental feat (and all weight loss is a monumental feat) you have to be willing to accept some degree of sacrifice.  Everyone's sacrifice is different.  I think it used to be easier for me to sacrifice.  My kids are older and demand more of my attention (I homeschool). My husband's job is more demanding and he is home  less to help.  So now I sacrifice my time, my sleep, my cleanliness of my home. (this one drives me…


Lesson #3: Hard Work Pays Off

Posted by Lynn on August 24, 2015 at 11:45am 2 Comments

But it is so stinking HARD!!!

It's been about a month and I am down 15 pounds  I have given up soda and it is been HARD but worth it.  I really need to focus on the next step of this journey ~ whatever that may be.  It feels great to have that weight off me, and I want to lose even more but I want to make sure that I do things the right way this time so I can make changes that will last me a lifetime.
