What Am I Doing?

Mid April 2015 and I have not had any interest losing weight.  In fact, I've put on weight.  I cannot even say what I weigh because I haven't jumped on the scales for a really long time.I tried on some tops yesterday, knowing full well my size, but…See More

He Keeps Me Moving

Thanks to my 2 year old, I've met my 5,000 step goal every day so far. It isn't too hard when the days are filled with trips to the zoo, Pump it Up, walks, and going to the park. The weather has been quite nice and we are taking advantage while we…See More

Crispy Skinned, Citrus Roasted Chicken

20150415_chick01
After getting back from an AMAZING trip to New Orleans with The Husband I was ready to hit my kitchen running. I love eating out but nothing beats a home-cooked meal. I defrosted a small whole chicken for a few hours in a sink full of water and decided to use what I had on hand to dress it up. The result was FANTASTIC! So fantastic Ryan couldn’t even wait until I finished taking photos to steal a bite. I’ve been [...]

Ground Turkey and Butternut Squash Chili

Ground Turkey and Butternut Squash Chili topped with avocado
Since canceling my CSA membership I’ve been trying to visit a local farm store for every other grocery shopping trip. This way I’m buying a bit more locally while reducing the amount of processed food in the house because it just isn’t available at those places. The farm store near me is great for not only produce but poultry. They offer all sorts of cuts and have fresh ground turkey breast and thigh. Last week I decided to give the ground turkey thigh [...]

Fish Tacos With Avocado-Lime Dressing

Fish Tacos with Avocado Lime Dressing
This is my first official post for the California Avocado Commission but, you know, I’ve been going a little avocado crazy in these parts since they sent me that case. My mission this month was to California-ize a recipe using avocado. I wasn’t quite sure what that meant but as soon they said it I thought: FISH TACOS! I’m not going to claim to know what an authentic California Fish taco is supposed to [...]

Yummy Brownies Made With Avocado and Dates!

One Yummy Brownies made Avocado and Dates!
I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t make them myself, and even then I needed like a million people to try them to validate it — I made a healthy, TASTY brownie! Yeah, yeah, “healthy” is super subjective, but these brownies are made with lots of accepted “healthy” ingredients like avocados, oats, almonds and cocoa powder.  They passed the kid tests (4 and 9 year old,) The Husband test, and even the friends-at-the-gym test who all immediately asked for the recipe. Honestly, I [...]

Avocado and Tomato Salad With Sunflower Seeds

Avocado and Tomato Salad with Sunflower Seeds
I have some big, exciting news! For the next few months I’ll be working with the California Avocado Commission and posting at least 1 avocado idea a month now through October. However, when someone sends you this many avocados how do you not eat them every day? So even though I’m only required to post one recipe a month you may be bombarded with more because I blog what I’m eating, and I’m going to be eating a LOT of avocados. The [...]

What Am I Doing?

Posted by 20tolose on April 18, 2015 at 1:31am 0 Comments

Mid April 2015 and I have not had any interest losing weight.  In fact, I've put on weight.  I cannot even say what I weigh because I haven't jumped on the scales for a really long time.

I tried on some tops yesterday, knowing full well my size, but when I looked at myself in the change room mirrors, I was horrified!  Needless to say I did not purchase those tops.  In fact the experience got me thinking - yeah, it's time to refocus.  I know how, I know why but I'm so lazy! …

Thanks to my 2 year old, I've met my 5,000 step goal every day so far. It isn't too hard when the days are filled with trips to the zoo, Pump it Up, walks, and going to the park. The weather has been quite nice and we are taking advantage while we can. Tonight for dinner we had Chick-fil-a. I forgot how much I love their grilled chicken sandwich and fruit cup. Sure, the fried sandwich, fries and cookies and cream milkshake taste better, but there aren't enough points in an entire week for…

Why can't I quit?

Posted by Paula on April 16, 2015 at 11:22pm 1 Comment

Oh no. I have caught a cold. And when I am sick I always turn to crackers, which is what I overdid today. Multiple handfuls of Cheez-It's. I can pass up the chocolate but not the salt. And no, they are not gluten-free. Bad and bad. The one saving grace is I did go for a long bike ride. It is my cross training activity for the days I am not training for the 5k. I just have to stop this mindless munching. Ugh sometimes I just feel I will never get a handle on this. I am suppose to be on txt his… Continue

Stress...

Posted by LindaB on April 16, 2015 at 6:57pm 1 Comment

Starting to feel stress this week.  Two reasons.

First I made a huge mistake in my check book that left me 600 less than what I thought I had.  So when I went to pay some bills imagine my surprise when I saw that I only had $200.  HOLY CRAP.  This came shortly ... like 30 minutes ... after my husband informed me that he might have blown the motor in his truck.  IT SUCKS.  We just started the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace classes at church and we have been learning a lot.  Really started…

Three Quarters

Posted by Lynn on April 16, 2015 at 8:27am 3 Comments

OK.  We have an issue.  I have an amazing on track morning and afternoon of each day.  I rock out tough work outs and I eat like a champ.  And then the kids come home.  Life gets busy.  I get hungry.  We run out of time.  And then we grab take out.  Happened again last night.  We need to get this under control if I am going to ever lose this weight!

PiYo ... advice.

Posted by LindaB on April 15, 2015 at 5:37pm 4 Comments

OK ladies who PiYo - I need input.

All you ladies always talk about these killer work outs.  Me ... I am just a walker.  I have consistently been walking for three years and just started to run ... if you can call it "running".  (NOTE:  My kids laugh at me.  HaHa)

I use to do water aerobics until my son started Karate and then I took Karate ... but don't anymore.  I miss it.  But there isn't a gym close by that I like or want to be affiliated with.

What I miss about…

On Track

Posted by Lynn on April 15, 2015 at 2:11pm 4 Comments

I am on track for an amazing day today.  I did a one mile workout (modified) this morning, skipped eating breakfast and lunch out, and I have green beans steaming away for my lunch before the husband and I hit the gym together at 4.  We have discussed dinner in.  Hot dogs and beans or BLTS.  Both quick, easy, and kid approved.  Not sure I will be partaking.

 

Feels good to be in this space.

Wish I could stay here forever.
