I think my children might be vegetarian and it’s of no work on my part, not that there’s anything wrong with it of course. But I’m as carnivorous as they come (big fan of the warm red center. BIG FAN.) But when I make a meatless dinner as opposed to a meatFUL dinner, I get […]

Of course, we all know that when looking for snacks, fruits and veggies are the real deal. But realistically, they are not always readily available. Here are a few of my favorite snacks to munch on: Smartfood Popcorn Clusters I have only tried the chocolate cookie caramel pecan variety, but these are so delicious. For […]

Hi ya’ll!!!! So, how’d we do on the two-week Monday Project?? Did you finish your book? What did you read?? Post about it, come back and link it up and tell us all about what healthy living-fitness-smorgasboard you’ve been reading about and share it with the rest of us! Tell us if you liked it, […]

It’s Spring. Can I get a HECK YES?! [raises roof] Time to get outdoors. Hit the trail. Get some fresh air. Eat some trail mix. Be one with the wilderness (okay, I got a little carried away). Yep – it’s hiking season! If you’ve never been much of a hiker, I’ve got to tell you, […]

Here is the leaderboard from week 6 of the Spring Fling Challenge! Lots of movement this week, and lots of gains for our teams this week. Come ladies!! We still have 2 weeks to get some weight off and improve your percentages! Don’t give up now 🙂 Congratulations to the Hood Mamas for holding on […]

Do you ever wish that you could go back in time and change your actions or behaviors, or lack thereof?  Do you ever think- if I had only known that when I began xxyyzz, then I would be in a much better place/would have made better decisions/wouldn’t feel lik crap now? This Thursday Three is […]

Hello to all our Sisters (and Brothers – we know you’re out there)! How was your week? Are you still going hot and heavy with the losses, or do you feel like your floundering a little bit? Me? I’m on a little bit of a detour right now myself. I kinda fessed up to how […]

If you missed our Biggest Loser Tworkout tonight on Twitter, DO NOT WORRY.  I have it right here for you! 1.  Buttkicks – 3 mins 2.  Push-ups (hands wider than shoulders and wide legs) as many as you can do 3.  Circle run – Get a small towel, ball it up, throw it in the […]

Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday.  Terrible Tuesday? Tortuous Tuesday? Tattle-Tale Tuesday? Nope. True Confession Tuesday. Let’s air some dirty laundry, shall we? Let us know if you had a couple speed bumps this week or if it was all smooth sailing.  The first step in correcting a problem is identifying it! Confess, blog, link up.  It’s that […]

Can I be honest? Yes, you say? Why thank you…(kisses) I have been lacking motivation. There. Phew, I said it. It’s off my chest now. Do any of you need to get that off yours too?  (please do and we will re-group together) I’ll spare the excuses (because I’m good at them). It is what […]

This week’s Monday Project is a part 2! Last week, we picked out a book that’s something to do with fitness and/or healthy living and this week we’re reading it. Today, if you have a great suggestion for a book that you’ve already read, please leave it in the comments below!! If you’re just now […]

I’ve been thinking a lot about San Diego this week as I’ve been doing my 1/2 marathon training, and one thing I want to have while I’m there is some good fish tacos. I’m totally craving them. I found this recipe on WW.com and I’m hoping to cook these up for my family sometime soon! […]

One of my greatest feats about having lost weight was that I did it without giving up any of my three favorite things: real sugar (not a fakey girl), cheese (Cheese cheese! I just love cheese! Really I doooo!) and bread.   Obviously, I have just had a little less of all of it than I […]

I admit that winter got to me.  I’m sick of the cold, wet, dreary weather.  All it makes me is lazy.  And lazy I have been. Isn’t it funny how much weather can affect our moods?  The past few weeks here, it has been such a struggle to get up and get moving, but this […]
