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
This time around the weight loss has been slow and steady. I'm okay with 2 pounds a week as long as I know I am making the right choices for myself to get to a healthier weight. I know this week I could've been more diligent with my food choices, but I did what I was comfortable with. Being overwhelmed with a drastic life change produces results, but as I have proven to myself, they are temporary results. We always go back to the place of comfort. The place where we feel at home.…Continue
It's only 1030am and its hotter than the devil's balls here in California. All I want to do is lay around with no pants on and be a bum, however, that will do nothing for my actual bum and thighs so I guess I have to get up and go out into the sauna. Does just going outside in the heat count as a workout? I think it should.
I had a green smoothie for breakyfast this morning and it was dalish. I think it will be part of the new morning routine..yay for my nutribullet. Gawd I…Continue
Turns out, brunch today wasn't the best idea ever, and for the wrong reasons... We were there at 10:30, and I've not eaten that much (mostly pasta salad and couscous, but also fruit and cake, because, well, cake!) I was full afterwards, but not like I was going to explode, which would have been "normal" for me. It was still early when we've left, 11:45 or so, not that late, so we've gone for a walk at the park.
Now, we've been home for a few hours and I've been hungry for what feels…Continue
I have gained weight over the last year. Not to state my diet is perfect but most days I do eat well and I exercise 6 days a week. After a road trip to Florida in March, I got home and was horrified. I had "swelled" from the waist down. My husband described it as "looking like the Michelin Tire Man" and was concerned. I have experienced swelling in my ankles for some time but attributed it sodium and old age. After 3 or 4 days I was back to…Continue
Check a 5k off my list of lifetime goals. It is complete! We had a great girls weekend and really enjoyed ourselves. Us three girls drove 2 hours to Columbus last night and stayed in a hotel. Unfortunately, I slept horribly. I just don't do well in hotel rooms, I was excited about the race, and worried I was keeping the other girls up. I remember looking at the clock and just wishing it would be 6:30 so we could get up.
Here we are before the race began (I'm in the middle,…Continue

I also suffer from a severe case…Continue

I was feeling good about WI this week and rightfully so - I was down a full pound! Woo hoo! I'm still in the 60s, but only by the hair of chinny-chin-chin (.3). I'll be back in the 50s again next week for sure.
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
