Every time I hear people say it takes too much time or money to eat healthier/lighter I cringe. Sure it CAN be but there are plenty of ways to make small changes to your diet that can be done on a budget and made just as fast as waiting in a drive-thru… Read the rest of this post
Out of the blue The 7 Year-Old asked if I would buy him bagels. He said… Read the rest of this post
With a ripe pineapple aging on the counter and 2 kids who refuse to eat it, I had to come up with something fast. I’m always shocked how yummy a smoothie can be with minimal ingredients. There’s no need for protein powder or mixes. … Read the rest of this post
This will be my last maple syrup idea for a while, I promise!
I just came home from Vermont so inspired with my big ol’ jug and it’s so darn good!
This salad came out way better than I thought because honestly, there’s nothing… Read the rest of this post
OK, there are 2 things I want to mention in this lunch post.
First, I was getting a little suspicious of all the 2-year-old’s lunches coming home empty.… Read the rest of this post
After months of training and planning--it's go time. Race weekend. I know that a 5k is not a big deal to a lot of people. But to someone who literally couldn't jog for a minute a few months ago--it is a big deal. This is the first thing that I have really committed to that was way outside my comfort zone. I tend to shy away from things that are hard or that I am not good at. Not this time. I went through the Couch to 5k program and then beyond. I am slow. But I am doing it. I am so excited…Continue
Hey all, hope you're all enjoying your Friday morning. I know I am, relaxing, etc. I work from 4-9pm tonight and I'm working a cashier shift, first one since I was trained so I am definitely nervous. I am trying to focus on eating healthy today, I have these yogurt covered mango granola balls that I am bringing to snack on during the day, I'll also bring (maybe) a small salad with baby carrots in it, a clif bar, and maybe a banana or mango, I'll write it out and post it on here later…Continue
Yesterday I was so exhausted from the beginning of the week that I fell asleep at 6pm. Then woke up at 9. Then went back to sleep at 10! I needed the sleep and I feel MUCH better today. Which is good, because it's go time!
I've got work today (currently at work again typing this before school officially begins...bad habit!), then after work I'm going to see A.J. for a bit, then we'll drive back to lake st. louis to my parent's house, stay the night there, do my sister's…Continue

Veggies, hummus, chicken breast, whole wheat pita, water
Apple & almonds, water

Ok, yesterday was a good day...got to bed around 10 am up by 2 pm. Ate lunch, then did some yardwork, went for a 8 mile bike ride & 2 mile walk with hubby. WW points were in check for the day. 2 days tracking only a lifetime to go.
Didn't work last night & I don't have to work tonight :) so today I plan to cut grass using the push mower for about half of it (have an acre lot), and do some planting. Plus, that dreaded laundry piled up again. Hopefully a campfire tonight or off…Continue
We rented bikes in Cozumel and rode to the other side of the island - about 10 miles one way. I knew the bikes we had were super shitty, not well maintained and didn't fit us well. But I had no idea of the havoc that would be wreaked (sp?) on my body. I have been in serious pain since getting back. My knees feel like back when I was addicted to running but had serious knee problems and ran despite of them. I guess my lower back also took a beating on those bikes. That's all I can figure out…Continue
Again, I'm at work right now (and probably shouldn't be typing this). My busy streak is ending and beginning at the same time. I needed a major brain break yesterday. So after rushing to the bank, rushing to the catering office to make it before they left for the day, getting A.J. from work, and sitting in traffic, I needed happy hour(s)!
We have been trying to get better about eating out. Which basically means trying to eat out less often. 1) because it's expensive and 2)…Continue
Hello, I've missed being on here, it's been a while! I have had a rough few months and needed to focus on some personal things. Things are much better now and I'm now ready to be focused and committed to my health.
I have already had a successful week back at it and it empowers me to push forward. Exercise has been walking and hiking when I have time, not often enough! But it is a start and I enjoy it! I've found that I really love hiking through the woods with nature all…Continue
