I am 57 years old. I am overweight and not in the best shape. I don’t always eat as well as I should. I don’t always exercise like I should. I don’t get enough sleep. I don’t drink enough water. I rarely take my vitamins. I drink way too much diet coke. I think you […]

I think that we all know about the ups and downs of weight loss and fitness. The peaks and valleys, so to speak. We have our good days, we have our bad days. We have the days or weeks when we are in a rut and having a hard time finding our way out. It […]

It’s been a while since I’ve done True Confessions Tuesday and boy am I glad to be doing it today. I seriously need to press the “reset” button this holiday season. In addition to the regular holidays, we have 4 birthdays in the family. Do you know what 4 birthdays in the family means? 4 CAKES. […]

Ok, so I know Thanksgiving was actually yesterday, but I’m extra thankful for something today — a new start!!

We crowned the winner of our SHRINKVIVOR challenge last week, and we thought it was only right to get her thoughts on the whole losing weight/getting healthy journey! Here’s what Whitney had to say: I wish I could say that my Weight Loss Journey began with a bang, that I woke up one morning with […]

It’s been a little while since we’ve reviewed an exercise around here but there’s one that I consider one of my most important in everything that I do and that’s the plank. It is so simple it hurts. Literally. You just need your body and some space and you can do them almost anywhere and […]

  I like to think of myself as a relatively fit person. I’ve completed ten races this year, including my first triathlon and three marathons.  I exercise (fairly) regularly, I eat (pretty) right, I don’t smoke, I don’t (hardly ever) drink. Do I struggle every day? Yes. But for the most part, I’m healthy. But, […]

We’ve been having some conversations on Twitter lately about what else but chia!! And yes of the Chia Pet kind. You probably know them from this: But before chia becomes some clay-thingy’s hair, they are seeds. And chia seeds are super healthy and you can eat them. (I will sprinkle photos of Chia Pets throughout this post that […]
