    2/27/2017 1:43:34 AM, by PRETTYPEACHY13

    So, some of our snacks for the week are chocolate chip cookies... found a good recipe for it. Now, let me interrupt here and just say that I'm a cook in name only. I have never really learned how to cook/bake. But I'm learning now.... Anyways, I decided to mix up the ingredients for the cookies... Read more

    2/26/2017 3:20:02 AM, by PRETTYPEACHY13

    Well, for the most part, I've been doing really good with following the menu plan and going to the gym.

    2/23/2017 1:36:43 AM, by PRETTYPEACHY13

    So, I've been trying really hard to stick with the menu plans me and my wife came up with. Not too much issues, just seems like I'm more hungry now than I used to be... I've read articles saying that if you're craving something, your body needs something in that food, so just give in but don't go cr... Read more

    2/21/2017 7:37:01 PM, by ALEXSGIRL1

    Many people write about losing their mojo or motivation . They ask where they can find it? They simply forgot that they are the keeper of the flame . That flame is in each one of us. Some days it is a little flicker and some days it is a roaring fire. It is always there for us to relight and stoke ... Read more

    2/21/2017 2:03:49 AM, by PRETTYPEACHY13

    Slow night at work so far. Haven't done much of anything yet. Kinda hope it stays this way. I'm so freaking tired! I don't know why... I'm sleeping 8+ hours a day.

    Well, as I continue to struggle with daily migraines, fibromyalgia, and trigeminal neuralgia, I am pushing myself harder and harder everyday. Staying focus, keeping my food on track and trying a new exercise every day. What makes me sad is that my friends have been making comments like "you must n... Read more

    Went to the gym earlier... kinda had a freak out. My wife is diabetic and she checked her sugar before lunch and it was 104. We had a stir fry skillet (not part of the healthy eating, but oh well), good source of protein and some carbs, not sure how much. Usually, it'll raise her sugar for a while. ... Read more

    We spent almost all day yesterday trying to come up with a menu plan for the week and writing out recipes.... probably wouldn't have taken so long if we weren't trying to stay on a tight budget... but luckily, we'll have some leftover food for the next week or so. Plus we were out of a crap ton of s... Read more

  • Best weight loss Secret ?

    2/15/2017 5:49:08 PM, by ALEXSGIRL1

    It really doesn't matter if you use Weight Watchers or the Atkins plan, or something else to lose weight. It doesn't matter if you walk in the park or run on a treadmill. If you do cardio three days or weight training for two or vice a versa . If you juice or if you drink smoothies . How many hour... Read more

    So I went to Planet Fitness this morning after work and signed up for a membership. I've done the gym thing a few times in my life, but I always end up getting discouraged because I always felt out of place. PF has a "no intimidation" rule where no one should feel unwelcome or intimidated by the oth... Read more

    2/3/2017 8:30:55 PM, by ALEXSGIRL1

    Today I got up earlier than I wanted because my dog Miss Misha demanded it. It was my day off so I longed to sit by the pellet stove and drink my coffee in peace. Alas, my husband left for work many hours earlier and forgot to fill it and also to put the furnace on as backup. As I sat shivering un... Read more
