Trying to keep my head up

Hi ladies!  It has been a month since my last post and I'm sad to say that I haven't got my act together nor have I stepped on the scale.  All of my blood work came back negative which although is a huge relief, no auto immune disease!  It is super…See More

A Better Egg Muffin Sandwich

Better Egg Muffin Sandwich - Done!

Six years ago — insert Holy Crap I’m old and I’ve been blogging far too long joke here — I shared my favorite way to turn a hard boiled egg into a quick sandwich. It’s something I still make pretty regularly but this morning I decided to step it up a little by adding avocado, […]

Acorn Squash Rings

Plate of Acorn Squash Rings

Completely uninspired, the acorn squash sat on my counter for weeks.   Nothing sounded fun — stuff it? Puree it? Attempt to get the family to eat it? Ugh. So I decided to simply cut and roast.  There was only one problem. I totally forgot about it in the oven! I have no idea how much time […]

Cooking With Kids: Tuna Steaks With Broccoli, Brown Rice and Quinoa

20141211_TunaSteak

Yay for episode 2 of Cooking With Kids! I didn’t think it was going to happen. Our evenings are getting busier and busier and it’s hard enough just getting dinner cooked, let alone cooking while teaching and recording! That being said, I absolutely LOVE making these! As you’ll see in the video we kept things […]

Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Ham

20141208_SweetPotaotes4

This is my new favorite dish! I made it the night before a competition this weekend and then made it again Sunday for something quick to grab out of the fridge. I don’t normally add lots of things when I roast veggies but the addition of the maple syrup and spices really compliment the sweet […]

Brussels Sprout Salad With Maple-Spiced Ham

20141204_BrusselSproutSalad7

I was originally going to call this Raw Brussel Sprout Salad with Maple Spiced Ham but then I cooked up the leftovers and it was even better! I’ve had this idea for some time but never seemed to have fresh brussels sprouts on hand. This week I made sure I had a bag and I’m so […]

Count it All Joy

Posted by LindaB on December 18, 2014 at 5:35pm 2 Comments

Its that time of year ladies and we need to count it all Joy.  Regardless of where we are in this journey of ours.  Whether we are trucking on with out a hitch, or if we find ourselves in the midst of a hic-up.  The ups will out weigh the downs, and the downs will provide us the means of appreciating the ups.  Not to mention --- the learning we gain from our small failures.  Learning curves ... all learning curves.

On the food front - I have let this week get slightly away from me. …

Trying to keep my head up

Posted by Erica on December 18, 2014 at 9:14am 2 Comments

Hi ladies!  It has been a month since my last post and I'm sad to say that I haven't got my act together nor have I stepped on the scale.  All of my blood work came back negative which although is a huge relief, no auto immune disease!  It is super frustrating not to have a diagnosis and the doctors look at me like I'm nuts.  Ruling out all of that brings me back to my original theory of Fluoroquinolone toxicity which I truly believe I am suffering with.  I feel very defeated as my doctors…

It's been awhile

Posted by Christy on December 16, 2014 at 3:16pm 5 Comments

Well, it's been awhile since I last updated. Guess not a whole lot to tell. Things are still going well with the pregnancy and with life in general. I am still making it to the gym 3 times a week most weeks.Still flexing. Haha.

I am definitely putting on the weight (as I should be at this point) and…

I did not want to do PiYo tonight after work, but I did and I am so glad I did. I only have this week left to complete the 60 days. Eating was good too. I am looking into taking a yoga class. I really want to work on flexibility. LindaB has me wanting to do jogging again. But that won't happen until the weather warms up just a little. The downside of living in the north. I want to do snow shoe meet in January & a cross contry ski meet. There is a nature preserve here that offers these… Continue

Five Tips to a Healthy You

Posted by MarthaG on December 15, 2014 at 5:58pm 0 Comments

In October I started a year long program to become health coach; something I'd toyed with for years and can do now that I've retired.  Loving the classes heard Robyn Youkills speak today.

Thought her article in the Huffington Post was worth sharing:

I got on the scale a bit apprehensive because I allowed myself to have several mini York Peppermint Patties & crackers this week. I had been so hungry and I just gave in. Hey, I am human. So anyway, I finally just got on the scale this morning and I lost 1.8 pounds!!!!!!!!!! Not that candy is the way to lose weight, but that all the hard work I did do did not come undone due to some candy. And the loss? Well it is enough for me to say no to…

Winter Funk

Posted by Amanda on December 12, 2014 at 8:07am 0 Comments

Oooof. Today was rough. I had to go in for training during the day, which is always rough on the nightshift. We were all a bunch of zombies, some of us coming off of a 12 hour shift the night before. I really question management's decision to train us during the day - are we really getting the benefits of learning anything? Would it be fair to ask a dayshifter to come in for a class from 8pm-12am? Just sayin'.



Been feeling so restless lately. First it is the winter blah's. Then comes… Continue

Week 5 and some Blips

Posted by LindaB on December 11, 2014 at 7:00pm 1 Comment

Just completed my Week 5 - 5K challenge.  I just amaze myself lately.  I actually did 4 days this week.  I repeated one.  Tonight was colder then the others.  I felt it in the pace times.  But hey - I kept going.  From running inside the other night, I had forgotten to turn the GPS part back on so I only got to see how far I went tonight --- because I remembered to turn it back on.  OF course, it would be on the night I felt slower; but we did go 2.25 miles in the 34 minutes of training…

down 3.6k/7.9lb I am very happy with what I saw this morning on the scales, I even said "Thank you" to them :)

I kept track of everything I ate with myfitnesspal. Also 7 days without processed sugary items (cookies, cakes, candy, etc.). This time it is easier and I haven't missed them at all.

I hope everyone is doing well. I want to apologize for not getting to other peoples blogs and reading their posts, I will get there!!!
