Color Run

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

So last weekend the family met some friends and we all did the color run. This was the 1st for all of us so we really didn't know what to expect. The majority of our group are not runners and we planned to walk it.
It started out a chilly (ok- cold!) morning at 40 degrees. We did not participate in many of the festivities because of the cold however this looks like it would have been quite fun if we had. There was about 3,000 people so it was a bit crowded, one of the largest runs we participated in.
It wasn't about running, for us this was about spending time with family and friends. From what I gathered, Color Runs are all about having fun, and fun was had by all. If you ever get the chance- try one!

Have to be accountable

Friday, May 09, 2014

I will admit it- I have been very lazy about tracking food, to be honest- I wasn't tracking at all. I felt like I was making smart healthy choices so why track??
Last two days I have tried to be better about tracking and guess what? My choices have not been as good as I think they were.
So now where do I go from here? Not exactly sure, it would probably be a good idea to get back to the basics and track again and try to follow the food plans that sparks suggest.

The truth hurts however Knowledge is power! Without knowing this, I could not make the necessary changes.

Tracking food and going to the gym- is on the agenda

    sharing a thought...

For me.. I have learned ... when I am trying to create a new habit... it creates a pendulum affect.... (back n forth).... however eventually it settles somewhere in the middle... I share this because... one of the hardest things I had to learn is PATIENCE with myself when the pendulum swings backwards....

You can do this... it appears you have the strong desire to succeed...

Wishing you all the best & Much Success ~Deby

Take a look at this device- do you think one device can track all of this?

    I've looked at this website & I am still a little unsure on how it works exactly. It says it measures sugar levels through the skin!?! If it works, I'm totally in. How much time would that save!?! emoticon

I saw this recipe and had to give it a try- even my teenage son liked it. It took time to make, but worth the wait.

1 box (9 oz) frozen spinach,thawed, squeezed to drain
2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend (8oz)
teaspoon dried basil leaves
cup finely shredded carrots (1 medium)
1 jar (25.5 oz) Italian pasta sauce

1) heat oven to 350. Spray 13X9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Cook & drain pasta as directed on package.
2)crumble sausage. Cook over medium heat.
3) In medium bowl, stir ricotta cheese, 1 cup Italian cheese blend, spinach & basil until well mixed. Stir in carrots and sausage.
4) spread pasta sauce over bottom of baking dish. Spoon sausage mixture in each pasta shell. Arrange shells, filled sides up, on sauce in baking dish. Pour remaining pasta sauce over stuffed shells. Cover shells with foil.
