Am I Crazy?

So there is a 5K in a nearby town on June 10th. I have decided to start training myself for it. I haven't ran since I was in high school.Yesterday was the first day of training and afterwards I didn't feel to bad other than the fact that my lungs…See More

Salisbury Steak With Simple Mushroom Gravy

simmer salsbury steaks
This is fast becoming a staple dinner in my house. It’s a simple meal that only has one ingredient the kids turn up their noses to: mushrooms. Other than that they love it just as much as The Husband does, who, if it was up to him, would eat this daily. Well, maybe every other day alternating it with pasta and my homemade sauce. He’s the type of person who can eat the same thing over and over —

The Perfect 3-Ingredient Soup with 2 Meal-Planning Tips on the Side

sweet potato soup
I’m not one of those people who plans a week’s worth of meals on Sunday and then just lets it play out. I tried, believe me. It just doesn’t work for me. I’m more of what I call a pantry cook. I’d much rather keep things in stock, buying when there are sales and then reacting to what I have on hand day-by-day. I find it allows me the most flexibility and I enjoy the creative aspect of it. That said, I’ve been getting into [...]

Beef with Eggplant and Brown Rice

Beef with Eggplant and Brown Rice
Pretty boring name, but my word … what a tasty dish! I’ve gotten in the habit of buying a large eggplant every week specifically for my Whole30 Go-To chili but I’m getting bored with it. So I decided to use the eggplant as inspiration for a new dish. It’s still “chili-like” in the sense that it’s lots of stiff just mixed together in one pot but instead of using the chili pepper as inspiration I used eggplant. I decided to keep this dish [...]

Brown Rice and Artichoke Bowl with Chicken and Feta

Brown Rice and Artichoke Bowl with Chicken and Feta
I picked up a can of artichoke hearts months ago with no idea what I would do with it. Last summer Mom made a pasta salad with artichokes and I just remember loving it. The artichoke is totally a vegetable I underutilize. I don’t know much about them except what I’ve seen on the Food Network and I’m terrified of them fresh. I’d have no idea how to even attack that thing. That said, they come conveniently prepared in cans and jars. My [...]

Quinoa With Beets, Pumpkin Seeds and Chives

Quinoa with Beets, Pumpkin Seeds and Chives
Last night at 3 a.m. I pulled into the driveway after a 15-hour drive from Florida. We took the kids to Disney for Spring Break in honor of The-Now-5-Year-Old‘s birthday. We had a blast but I’m happy to be home. Although, being greeted by an empty fridge is never fun. Well, empty besides the crap-ton of beer we’ve had in there since our Christmas party in December. December! Anyway, battling an empty stomach and armed with only what I could dig out of my bare [...]

Am I Crazy?

Posted by Brenna on May 3, 2016 at 12:38pm 0 Comments

So there is a 5K in a nearby town on June 10th. I have decided to start training myself for it. I haven't ran since I was in high school.

Yesterday was the first day of training and afterwards I didn't feel to bad other than the fact that my lungs were on fire! Today I don't hurt as much as I thought I would but my hips are definitely feeling it.

I have heard that you need at least 8 weeks to train for a 5K when your just starting out. I have 6... Am I crazy to…

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!

Posted by Christy on May 2, 2016 at 8:44pm 3 Comments

You guys, I did it! 13.5 months after my daughter was born I am FINALLY officially back at my lowest adult weight. That makes me down a total of 68 pounds from my highest weight--41 of which I put back on during pregnancy and have now taken off again. In fact I have made it to goal 3 separate times with Weight Watchers--65 pounds before I met my husband, 68 pounds after my first baby, and 41 after my 2nd. That's a lot of pounds. I hope to never have to lose that amount again. Now comes the…

Feeling desperate!

Posted by Dee on May 2, 2016 at 3:29pm 1 Comment

I cannot seem to get back in the groove. The last thing I was excited about was using the app Lark to keep me mindful of my eating habits; that didn't last. I haven't weighed myself in awhile because I am afraid. My exercise has gone way down, and my eating, I'm not even paying attention. I've started eating sugar daily. It's like all my old habits found me and are settling in for the long haul. 

I don't know how I'm going to get back on track, but, at least I want to check in…

Weekly Update 4/30

Posted by Paula on April 30, 2016 at 3:00pm 2 Comments

Weight - Down 0.8 pounds. I am blessed. I've lost each week since March. All losses rmatter regardless of size!

Food - 80/20. What can I say? I like snacks still, but getting it under control.

Exercise - One outdoor run, the other 3 on the treadmill. One upper body resistance workout.

Mood - A stressful roller coaster week. Glad it is the weekend.

Back in the Swing

Posted by LindaB on April 27, 2016 at 8:01pm 3 Comments

I am please to say that after a fairly emotional and hectic week last week, that I have pulled myself together and I'm back in a good routine.  Between loosing my sweet dog and also being involved in an audit from the state at work - I was emotionally spent.  So glad its a new week.

Food wise, I've done really well - I know its just Wednesday --- but I feel good about my choices and my intake to what is burned.

Sunday afternoon, I got my first run in - in two weeks.  I was able…

10 days down

Posted by Laura on April 27, 2016 at 7:37pm 1 Comment

So I'm nearing the end of the tenth day and I'm down ten pounds! I feel great, my clothes are fitting better (some even too loose) and my new eating habits are becoming more of a habit. What's more motivating than real results?? So far so good! :)

My weekly update

Posted by annajasper on April 24, 2016 at 4:22am 2 Comments

A pound off I think this week which is good all things considered. Bought some expensive scales which turned out to be crap and can never decide on a reading...when it does it's a stone heavier -or lighter within 5 minutes of stepping on! I'm sticking with my mechanical scale for now.I can't describe the hideous feeling of the scale suddenly saying a stone heavier then a stone lighter..it's like someone really screwing with you!

The experiment with Konjac root goes on.…

Weekly Update - 4/23,

Posted by Paula on April 23, 2016 at 3:06pm 7 Comments

Weight - Down 1.6 pounds. I admit I love seeing me make progress!

Exercise - 4 runs & 1 bike ride in this week. Love running outside again.

Food - Not perfect, but I am making better choices most of the time.

Mood - Even with my loss & things going better, my depression & overall mood is down. An office environment can be extremely toxic. It is harder to cope there than in the kitchen.

You're not going to believe it

...but I am sick--AGAIN! Our family has always been relatively healthy, but these past two months have done me in. First we had the stomach bug (the kids and myself), then the flu (the kids and myself), then my daughter had a random fever virus, and now I have strep throat! I felt totally fine when I woke up yesterday and by evening I was miserable. Sore throat, tender glands, white patches on my throat--I knew exactly what it was. I went to the clinic first thing this morning and sure…
