Cross Training (adding variety or dieing trying)
Wednesday, February 02, 2011      0 comments

Ok so that title is an exaggeration. Sorry but I bet it caught your attention. I tend to get in a rut and it's esp. easy in winter. Can't really ride bike here in the winter and I just don't do outside much of anything in two feet of snow and su... Read more

Burning calories in the cold
Monday, January 31, 2011      2 comments

Wednesday, January 26, 2011      3 comments

One day fairly recently I read a daily blog about tracking. so what do you really track and how accurate are you? I have been thinking about this a lot. Do you taste the samples in the grocery store? Do you track them? As for me it's a sometimes... Read more

aerobic housework???
Sunday, January 23, 2011      4 comments

I am never entirely sure about counting house work as aerobic exercise however today that is the route I opted for. I rarely mess a day at the gum but today is one of those days. I knew my house was pretty much a disaster and that my energy for ... Read more

My take on it; or Chia seed vs. Flax seed
Thursday, January 20, 2011      0 comments

So for taste, texture and appearance ground flax definitely has the edge. But I am getting ahead of myself, maybe some background is in order. I have been eating flaxseed most days for a couple of years, maybe more. My doctor suggested it as ... Read more

I have been talking about getting serious about dropping the pounds I have been gaining for a while. I actually think I am moving forward yesterday and today. My issue is really not even emotional eating most of the time. It's mindless eating. U... Read more

Well today really starting last night didn't go as planned per se. Last night my 21 year old was stuck in O'Hare waiting for air traffic to clear so she could fly back to Fargo so it got to be a late night for me and than had a couple of interup... Read more
Eating Clean ( how clean should it be?)
Tuesday, January 11, 2011      2 comments

I certainly don't take eating clean as far as Tosca Reno of Oxygen, Clean Eating and cook book fame. I try to cut trans fat but struggle with peanut butter consumption. I try to eat all whole grains, that goes better most of the time. I also try... Read more
