Mushroom and Potato Starter

Mushroom and Potato Starter with hard boiled eggs
Last week 8-ounce packages of mushrooms were on sale. I only needed one package for my chili but since they were buy one, get one I picked up the second not knowing what I’d do with it. Yesterday morning it hit me. I came home from the gym famished and dreaming of a smoothie the entire drive home, but when I opened the fridge my extra package of mushrooms jumped out at me. “Eggs it is!” I thought. Rummaging though the rest of the fridge [...]

How to Cook a Whole Chicken in the Slow Cooker

How to Cook a Whole Chicken in the Slow Cooker
I did it! I finally got my act together and recorded a video! 5 minutes in the morning. 5 minutes after work. Dinner done! You really can’t beat it. Here’s what I did in case you don’t have time to watch my 4-minute video… 1 onion, cut in half 4-5 medium potatoes, cut in half if needed 1 whole chicken, ~5 lbs Salt and seasonings of your choice (I used a garlic, thyme, cumin and sage mixture) Place the onion and potatoes on the bottom of the slow cooker. [...]

Double Chocolate Banana Almond Smoothie With Greens

Double Chocolate Banana Almond Smoothies with Greens
Since starting Whole30 I’ve given up my post-workout protein powder since it was loaded with sugar and sweeteners. In its place I purchased a  NutriBullet so I could make quick smoothies at home and I could’nt be happier! This things rocks! And I’ve used it daily since getting it from Amazon. To replace my post-workout shake I came up with this tasty concoction that is way better and has way more nutrients. It may not look pretty but it’s super [...]

Butternut Squash Cakes

Butternut Squash Cake breakfast.
It’s been a snowy weekend here in Maryland. Currently I’m buried under about 2 and a half feet. The drifts around the house are insane! The Husband and I spent about 2 hours shoveling this morning just to clean off the driveway. Before heading out, however, I had to make myself a big warm breakfast because BREAKFAST — I’m learning to love it again. I’ve had a butternut squash sitting on the counter for a couple of weeks so I decided it was time to [...]

Warm Blueberry Chia Pudding

Blueberry Chia Pudding
I needed a break from eggs and dinner leftovers for breakfast. It’s been cold in these parts and all I wanted was a warm bowl of awesome.  Normally that means oatmeal, but I’m 20 days into Whole30 and there’s no giving up now! I rummaged through my pantry for something to cure my craving. Chia to the rescue! Not everyone is a fan, but I happen to enjoy the texture of these seeds, especially warm. They take on any flavor you throw at them [...]

Not what I was expecting = starting over

Posted by Nicole LeRiger on February 12, 2016 at 9:45am 4 Comments

So a few weeks ago I decided to go back on Atkins which helped me lose 100 pds in the past along with giving me a ton of energy. I've been following it for 3 weeks. And I am torn. I have seen no loss on the scale but I have seen a change in my body as well as my energy. I have started doing tabata everyday which is great. I am sleeping great, my digestion is awesome however I am not seeing any scale loss. So I am reaching out for opinions do i continue to stick with it and throw scale out?…

i sometimes go back & read old blogs damn I have been struggling for way too long. It is so hard not to get discouraged. It seems I just can not find what works for me. I just do not want to go back to weighing, calculating & feeling deprived. I just have to find something to do. I don't want another month to go by without any progress. I only have 1 more day before weigh in & this week would not be a good week to see a gain. Ugh!

Tough Times Ahead

Posted by Christy on February 11, 2016 at 9:15pm 2 Comments

February is a fun, but TOUGH month around here. The celebrations begin tomorrow. We are going out for a much needed date night. It's been far too long. We are going to our very most favorite, family owned Italian restaurant. It is amazing. My game plan is to eat slow and stop when I'm satisfied (that's the hard part because it's so good!!) Then next week is my birthday. We didn't really have anything planned because we knew we were going out tomorrow. Then a friend called today and asked me…


Funny How...

 Its my break day  just checking in and saying hello!  Hope you girls are having an amazing week!  I think it strange how I get ignored by certain people on this site. I will publicly apologize for offending anyone if I have, Its like a slap in the face to publicly comment on a persons blog and get completely ignored all the while they are commenting on other blogs.  Yes I am talking about you. Isnt this a site where we are supposed to support each other and be friendly.... if that isnt what…


Check In

Posted by LindaB on February 11, 2016 at 7:53pm 3 Comments

Its better for me to check in to say that "I suck this week" -- than to say nothing at all.  I don't want to get into the habit of becoming lackadaisical with this.  I want to be held accountable.  I want to become consistently intentional with my eating and with my weight loss efforts; and posting here is a part of that process.

What held me back this week.  Well - I held me back this week.  The temperatures have been a little colder than I like to get outside and run.  Although - I…

I finally decided to track my running. Hey, running on a treadmill isn't that interesting so you have to do something! So last night I messed up on the treadmill & lost the mileage. Don't ask! I was so angry. Damn touch screens. But tonight went better. I got in 5 miles. I have also begun to include some upper body work & ab work a few times a week. I am really looking forward to Spring. I want to run outside. It beats the treadmill for sure! Last year it was mostly running &… Continue

Good News!

Posted by Jeff VanLandingham on February 10, 2016 at 6:30am 2 Comments

I’m 15 pounds lighter! Of course, I’ve still a ways to go (much to my shame), but it’s not a bad start. 21 days of chicken, steak, ribs, eggs, bacon, and salad have paid pretty impressive dividends.  I miss the taste of fruit already, but I can hold out for a while, especially if I continue to see decent results. I…


Terrific Tuesday

Posted by Angie Y on February 9, 2016 at 6:31pm 4 Comments

  So its day 2 of the fast.. lol. I feel like this is just as normal as its ever been for me. So thats a good thing. I woke up and did my normal social media sites. Then I cleaned a bit and decided it was time! Went down into my gym, knowing that this is the BEST time for me to burn through fat I did a 60 minute Turbo, the longest and best one. She literally tells you when you are stretching after the workout that you just did the same amount of work as running over 7 miles. So…


Eat Up!

Posted by Christy on February 8, 2016 at 9:47pm 7 Comments

Well, it happened again. On the old Weight Watchers plan it took  me awhile to realize that I needed to EAT. I was not intentionally starving myself (or even really feeling hungry) but was just not eating enough to fuel my workouts and my body reacted by holding onto weight instead of dropping it. Long story short, I realized that if I would eat the points I earned for activity, I actually lost more weight. With the new rollout of the program, I have had to reevaluate how many points I use.…
