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 [...]

Quinoa-Topped Portobello Melt

finished Quinoa-Topped Portobello
This was one of those lunch idea that just hit me when I opened the fridge. I’ve been trying to keep cooked quinoa on hand for quick meals and I picked up a packed of portobello mushrooms this past weekend just because. When I saw both side by side I thought… BAM! Lunch. I used what I had on hand, which was some fresh spinach and aging grape tomatoes but this idea can go in a million directions. I really wish I had some fresh basil but [...]

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 2 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 2 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! :)

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…


Weekly Update 5/24

Posted by Paula on May 24, 2015 at 11:04am 1 Comment

Weight - Up 0.6 pounds. Down 9.6 pounds since Day 1

Body Image - Getting a bit negative since the weight loss has been zilch for the past month. I really did want to be farther along in my weight loss.

Exercise - I completed my 1st 5k. I ran the entire way, which was my goal. I plan to keep training for my next 5k and bike ride.

Food - This really needs to be my focus. I make good choices but I know I have been eating too much & snacking or indulging far too… Continue

I did it!

Today was my first 5k. It was a small race, which I think helped me not be so nervous. It was also called a fun run. It was a 5k walk or run & a half marathon. I am so incredibly happy with myself. I ran the entire race. My time was 33:12. I now understand how every runner here gets addicted. I already want to do another one! It really helped give me the boost to try harder with my diet. I want to lose weight.

Why Do I Want This? <--and what is THIS?

Posted by Shannon H. on May 23, 2015 at 9:04am 3 Comments

Guys. I had a light bulb moment last weekend. I haven't really defined why I'm after this or what the hell "this" even is. Worse yet, when I started to I was really sad by the first thing I wrote down...

  • I want to look like a million bucks the next time I see my old co-workers and mentors (B., Br., Chr.) or any even remote acquaintances I might run into from my old job. 

Ok. What?!? Really? That was the FIRST thing you…

Exercise has always been the easier part of the healthy lifestyle for me to get motivated by. Although I still have alot of slippage from my goals, I enjoy exercise and reset much more quickly than when I slip from my food goals. 

Last weekend, I participated in my 5th Bay to Breakers race in a row. The B2B is a 12k race, which is 7.6 miles and includes a classic San Francisco hill- the gravity defying kind! Here I am at the start of the race with my mom- this is her third…

Since I have been so disappointed in the scale readings lately I decided to take some measurements to see if there has been any change. The last time I did that was 3 months ago. Well my thighs are 1/2 inch smaller than they were. Even though I have not lost weight in the last 3 weeks, I did have a loss. Tomorrow is my weigh in day. I have had some bad food moments, but I am going to get on it anyway. My first 5k is tomorrow too & I am so nervous but I will finish it even if I am walking it… Continue
