Butternut Ginger Soup With a Side of Diet Tips

This weekend I made the most amazing, simple soup and it reminded me of all the little things I do day-to-day to help me feel in control of my diet. Before we go any further let me establish I despise the word “diet” when used to represent calorie restriction for a short period of time solely for the purpose of losing weight. Instead I use it to simply mean “what I eat,” which I happen to take fairly seriously. I say fairly because I [...]

Shrimp Tacos With Peanut Sauce

This weekend I got back from our annual week at the shore, itching to cook something in my own kitchen that wasn’t pizza, hamburgers or cheesesteaks — the trifecta of beach food for us. I hit the grocery store after unpacking to restock the fridge and get some fresh food in the house. There happened to be shrimp on sale, which inspired me. Shrimp tacos sounded perfect,  a light, easy meal. To spice up the tacos I made a simple homemade peanut sauce using pantry ingredients I had [...]

Balsamic Beef With Zucchini

I am between summer trips at the moment so my kitchen has seen busier days. Last week I took the boys on our yearly mother-sons adventure (click here for photos and a  recap) and next week we head to the Jersey Shore for our annual week at the beach. I love summer! Right now I’m in my clean-out-the-fridge mode trying to use up perishables before we leave. The boys wanted burgers for dinner but I wasn’t in the mood. So I used [...]

Simple Oven-Roasted Brisket — My First!

Cooking large cuts of meat isn’t something that came natural to me. Whole chickens, large roasts, even pork loins I used to find intimidating. I’m not sure why — in some ways they are easier to prepare than individual steaks or chops. Preheat the oven, pop them in, set a timer and boom! Dinner. They do require a bit more planning. You can’t just pull out a frozen brisket after work and have dinner on the table in an hour, which [...]

Slow Cooker Ginger Beef

It’s been 3 weeks since my last post but I’m still alive, I swear! A few weeks ago I started consulting for a small tech firm and my days have been filled with programming learning modules. I’m also still managing the gym and last I checked, I have two kids running around this place somewhere. I kid. I kid. I’m busy but I’m finding the details of calculating specific nutritional information for my ideas more than my lack of time holding me back from posting more. My [...]

I wore a bikini on vacation!

Posted by Erica on July 19, 2017 at 1:56pm 0 Comments

I'm back from 2 weeks of vacation!   We've been home a week and a half now.  We spent one week in Disney for me DD's national jump rope competition and then took a cruise to Nassau and Freeport,  Bahamas!  Competition was awesome!  Her team did outstanding!  This was my first time judging at the national level and it was fun! 

My weight fluctuated up a bit, in the 2 weeks leading up to vacation.  I was 145.8 when we got home and I've took 4 pounds off in a matter of days.  I'm hoping…

Happy Summer, back to tracking and working out :-)

Posted by Ali on June 28, 2017 at 1:02am 1 Comment

I've been off school for a whole month now and it has been glorious. I started back on my eating templates June 12 and have lost a few lb's since then! Looking forward to more pounds off and to reaching my goals in a healthy way. School starts up in a month or so and I am looking forward to some big changes next year, I'm going from full time to part time which should free up enough time for me to have dedicated gym time and self care time. For the last three years, I have been so busy with…

I have made it into the 130's just barely!  I'm so glad I'm continuing my progress.  I have a vacation coming up in a month and I'm motivated to get my butt into a bathing suit!

Weight - Zero loss. Grateful it is not a gain.



Exercise - Ran 5 days & 2 days upper body workout.



Food - I ate too many snacks. Nervous/mindless eating. Working in a grocery buying office is tough!! Free samples.

I weighed in at 140.8 today!  I'm not complaining, I promise, but I am losing at a faster rate lately than what I had been and I haven't changed anything.  I wish I knew why, so that I can keep up the trend!  Have a great week!
