What do you wear to workout in?
Tuesday, June 26, 2012      7 comments

Fitness clothes are the first kind of clothes I've ever had an addiction to. I'm not a girly girl; I don't do shoes, I don't do makeup... I just don't care. Well, used to not care, anyway. As I've gotten older, I have started to care, a little. ... Read more
Sneaking in exercise
Monday, June 25, 2012      2 comments

I'm getting better at sneaking in exercise. In my pursuit of inefficiency, I've declare that anytime we go to the convenience store down the street, or CVS, or the dollar store, or Fred's... we will walk, unless there is an extenuating circumsta... Read more
Ow. My abs. Stop showing off!

Okay, so yesterday I finally managed to convince one of my friends to join me at the gym. She's an old friend (we've been hanging out since high school) and she and her husband both want to join a gym. So I grabbed a guest pass, and took her alo... Read more
Change your way of thinking
Friday, June 22, 2012      2 comments

It's funny how we get ourselves into a rut. We think about doing things one way not because it's the best way, but because it's what we're used to. Right now, it's 82 degrees in my house. It's 90 something outside. I wanted to go for a run... Read more
When perfection isn't
Wednesday, June 20, 2012      2 comments

So, this has been my week of not perfection. Okay, two weeks. I knew the summer was going to be a challenge; I just didn't expect it to be THIS challenging. I was determined that nothing was going to get in the way of my routine, and... Read more

I've mentioned my aunt before; she's an amazing lady, smart, successful, and healthy. She made a conscious decision some years ago to get well and truly healthy, and for the most part, she does a damn fine job of it. She's the source of my ... Read more
Making an old favorite a little healthier
Sunday, June 17, 2012      4 comments

As part of my husband's father's day request, I'm making an old favorite of his: Lasagna. It's a recipe I've been working with for years, that I originally got out of a magazine. I love it, and it's a big winner for the family. I make it super c... Read more

Tough Love
Friday, June 15, 2012      7 comments

Sometimes, we have to hear things we don't want to hear. We don't like the answers we get, and we feel like someone is being mean, attacking, or rude. I know that I on occasion stick my foot in my mouth, but I never say things with the int... Read more
Yummy pizza from Dominos.
Thursday, June 14, 2012      4 comments

Tonight we ordered pizza from dominos. In an effort to cut calories, and be healthier, I ordered mine on thin crust (I NEVER do that... I've never cared much for it.) and got a pacific veggie. It was actually REALLY, really good! I ate tw... Read more
Feeling good, healthy choices
Wednesday, June 13, 2012      2 comments

Today's leaving me feeling a lot better than I have in a long time. I made homemade alfredo with portobello mushrooms and asparagus for supper, and served it over zucchini angel hair noodles. That's a healthy choice that just makes me feel empow... Read more
Cleaning up my life
Monday, June 11, 2012      11 comments

I have a confession to make. I am messy. By messy, I don't mean the sort of messy your mother in law says when you come in and she's got a magazine on the kitchen counter and two bits of fluff in the corner. I mean just a few s... Read more

Justification Station
Saturday, June 09, 2012      10 comments

One of the things I've noticed when I talk to my friends now is that for some reason, they all seem compelled to tell me why they can't be healthy, or why they're not trying. It's like my mere presence is enough to make them feel guilty, and th... Read more
Where is my mojo?
Friday, June 08, 2012      5 comments

I've been struggling with exercise this week. I'm not sedentary, but I've only been to the gym once, and I just haven't been myself. The good news is my eating is more or less under control... but I'm just off my groove, I think. I'm pla... Read more
