My new love is Coconut Oil. I am still in the process of discovering new uses for the oil but the math is pretty simple. Add coconut oil to diet = weight loss... skip oil for a couple of days = no weight loss. This stuff is amazing. ... Read more

At the Farmers Market last weekend I purchased two big bunches of kale - curly leaf - organic apples, organic carrots, organic strawberries, an onion, two zucchini, and a bunch of garlic. The organic strawberries were the most expensive, but s... Read more

I gave it a whirl (literally) this morning. I read so many spark pages and Paleo/Primal blogs that I can't remember where I got this smoothie recipe from. I wanted something that I could incorporate my coconut oil because putting it in my... Read more

With all of my questions about Paleo / Primal / Low Carb / Healthy fats and such my lack of a gameplan meant that my weight stalled. I had lost 20 lbs. at this point and kind of flipped out. What if that was all my body was capable of losin... Read more

I checked out for a couple of days. Just a regrouping. Trying to change things up a bit and still keep on the healthy track... I was following something closer to the 17 day diet and all was fine, but I was getting out of hand with the yo... Read more
Walking Partner
Monday, August 06, 2012      4 comments

So... had to dump my walking partner. Not entirely his fault. Our 2 yr. old Sibe has too much energy for me. He does really well for a while and then gets antsy because I am not going fast enough, then his eye catches a bird, squirrel or heav... Read more

I am a Libra. I have a tendency to see both sides to every story, but unfortunately that means that with all of the positive there comes the not so positive. This isn't always a bad situation, I believe in balance - it truly makes the world g... Read more

My youngest daughter is cracking me up. As I have said before, she is 15 and an athlete... and on summer vacation from school. This means so many things, but mostly that her brain has a total disconnect from anything school related. Particula... Read more

I made a vow not to get scale crazy. So far I have been pretty good. I did not set my personal goals to reflect ..."I want to weight XX..." The number did not mean as much to me as the how do I feel, how do I look, can I fit into clothes tha... Read more
The Master Schedule
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      2 comments

Making lifestyle changes is harder than I thought. It all sounds great in theory, but so much tougher to put it into practice. For example: My plan is to go swimming 3 days a week and treadmill at least twice. I have every intention of doing... Read more
