Preparation is 9/10ths of the law.I was able to hit all three goals again yesterday (Journal, Blog, and a whopping 68 ounces of water).  I also did double duty at the gym.  Sounds perfect, right?  Not so much.  When I came home from the gym in the…See More

Day One... DOWN

The 10-Minute Salsa Stuffed Potato

20150803_SalsaStuffedPotato5
Mid morning my stomach was growling! I’ve moved to drinking my 4-Ingredient Recovery Shake With Cocoa and Greens every morning when I get home from the gym but it’s not a substantial enough breakfast for me. My stomach is usually growling by 10. Today I made something from scratch instead of rummaging through the pantry. I just went to the grocery store yesterday and 5-pound bags of potatoes were buy one get one free. Considering I now [...]

Blue-cado Tostada

Blue-cado Tostada
A HUGE thank you to @Natnatols who helped me name this creation on Instagram. I simply can’t help sharing food photos in real time there when I’m cooking, and when I mentioned I didn’t know what to call this one she immediately recommended Blue-cado Tostada. Perfect! The story behind this dish is pretty funny. I’ve been home for a few days after vacation. My fridge was fairly empty because I honestly have not been in the mood to shop. The [...]

4-Ingredient Recovery Shake With Cocoa and Greens

4 Ingredient Recovery Shake with Chocolate and Greens
I don’t talk about it much here but I’m a bit of a workout junkie. Every morning at 6 a.m. you will find me at the gym lifting heavy things with my friends. Afterwards I normally drink a quick recovery shake made from a powder but it’s time to make something a bit more homemade. Especially because a daily smoothie is an easy way to get more greens in and I can use a few more in my diet day-to-day. So I set out [...]

Quinoa With Blueberries and Feta

Finished Bowl of Quinoa with Blueberries and Feta
I always forget about quinoa and then when I whip up a quick dish I remember how awesome it is. The texture, the way it soaks up the flavor of anything you add to it, the health benefits — it makes a great quick meal or side dish. The other day I turned a serving into a great lunch. Using the leftover Basil-Mint Dressing I made for my shrimp salad as a flavor base I added a bit [...]

Green Salad With Shrimp and Basil-Mint Dressing

Green Salad with Shrimp and Basil Mint Dressing Plated
I used to be one of those people who “saved” seafood for dinners out. I think it was a remnant of my childhood. We rarely ate seafood at home because it was too expensive. In the summers when I’d visit my dad on Long Island we’d fish and broil the fresh flounder we caught that day. Sometimes we’d steam clams or crabs we caught on my grandfather’s old, rickety clam boat. If we caught it we ate it but I have no [...]

Preparation is 9/10ths of the law.

I was able to hit all three goals again yesterday (Journal, Blog, and a whopping 68 ounces of water).  I also did double duty at the gym.  Sounds perfect, right?  Not so much.  When I came home from the gym in the afternoon I was so hungry that I was ready to throw in the towel and get take out because I was tired, starving, and weak.  I now realize that I am going to have to remain prepared with healthy food if I am going to remain…

Day One... DOWN

Posted by Lynn on August 3, 2015 at 8:52am 0 Comments

And it really wasn't even THAT bad.  I mean I felt the urge later in the day to just throw in the towel but then I asked myself why.  Why would I throw in the towel?  I had a fairly easy morning and afternoon.  Went to the gym and slowly worked my way through my old routine.  One slow mile on the treadmill and very light weight on the machines.  I wanted to do more, but I know better.  I need to start slow so I don't get injured or overwhelmed.  Or discouraged.

I hit all three…

Today Is My LAST First Day

Posted by Lynn on August 2, 2015 at 8:34am 0 Comments

I am so tired of starting over every single day.  I never get anywhere by doing that.  That is why today is my LAST first day.  Because my bad habits have taken over my life I am committing to three back to basic techniques that I know work to build the foundation I need to get back on track:

(1)  Journal every thing every day ~ SIGH

(2)  Blog every day ~ I am not that busy that I can't sit down for ten minutes at some point during the day

(3)  Drink at least one…

Weekly Weigh in 7/1

Posted by Paula on August 1, 2015 at 3:00pm 1 Comment

Weight - Up 1.4 pounds. Ugh!

Exercise - Jogged. 3days, biked 1 day, walked 2 days. It was so windy I walked instead of biking.

Food- Ate too many peanut butter pretzels & salted cashews as snacks.

Mood- Very Unhappy & no idea how to overcome.

It is August & something has to give. I must not want it bad enough.

hello

On track for the most part. I started c25k on Monday. It's changed since the last time I did it. It's only three days a week instead of 4. And it's 8 weeks instead of nine. But I did day 2 of week one this morning tomorrow is day 3. Since I was expecting 4 days of running I'm debating calling the 4th day free for all zombie run day. Maybe use my zombie run app and do 30 minutes of that and run as much as I can. Well see how ambitious I get. Also started calorie counting again. It's a little…

Surprising progress

Posted by Dee on July 29, 2015 at 4:48pm 1 Comment

So June and July were not the months I'd hoped. I want to laugh because I realized I wrote the same thing about June, and here goes a whole other month and I still haven't gotten it together. 

Surprisingly, I've been losing weight. I know why, but I am still surprised because I haven't been meeting my specific goals for how to do food and exercise. But what has happened, is that I haven't been a sugar fiend. I actually have left dessert items alone most of the month, and like…

And where did July go?

Posted by Paula on July 28, 2015 at 11:31pm 1 Comment

It has taken me by surprise that almost 7 months of 2015 are gone. I am not where I want to be and I think I need to come up with a plan. I know I want to avoid those diets that are not sustainable over the long term. It has to be a forever deal & something I like and want to do. I do not want to calorie count. I do not mind the 21 day fix diet program. It is portion control. I count containers, not long lists of numbers. I don't eat meat any longer & dairy is very limited. I feel so… Continue

Still Truckin'

Posted by Christy on July 28, 2015 at 2:32pm 4 Comments

Not a whole lot to report here. I'm still truckin' along. I didn't make it to my WW meeting this week because I had my dad, sister, and her 4 kids in town all last week and they were just leaving on the day of my meeting. I HAD to make it to the grocery store because with that many people in one house, we couldn't keep stocked. While I had lots of indulgences while they were here, I still stayed on track pretty well with my meals. Even though I didn't go to my meeting, I weighed at home at…

accomplished!

It's been a little while. I've been working my ass off then I got lazy (well deserved). I completed my triathlon last Sunday. The run was about what I expected and took me the exact time that I planned. The bike ride was rough. The hills sucked and doing it after running three miles was hard. The bike ride took longer than I planned. The swim wasn't hard the worst part was getting my breathing regulated enough so it was in a pattern instead of panting. I passed like 4 people in the pool. I…

Is fat my destiny?

Posted by Paula on July 25, 2015 at 2:35pm 8 Comments

Weight - Up 0.6 pounds. I am getting no where!!!!



Mood- Feeling like shit. Fat & last week I had a root canal so basically it has been a shit week.



Exercise- Jogged 3 days & biked 3 days & I gained weight. Ugh!



My goal this week? Eat less. Eat wholesome. Veggies & fruit need to take center stage. I know what to do. I want to go back to the Dr. There has to be a reason why I can't lose weight. I do not want to starve myself by doing a diet I can't… Continue
