I get stressed a lot. There, I said it. I was so overwhelmed this week I seriously ate at Wendy's 3 out of the 5 weekdays this week. And I only made semi-good decisions (small fry instead of the Biggie I wanted to stuff in my face with two ha... Read more
So I started this 100 DTS challenge a while ago, and shockingly, I'm still here. I've certainly not been perfect at it, in fact I've downright sucked a few times. But I keep coming back and coming back. Why? Well, it all goes back to one of ... Read more
I've heard people talking about greek yogurt for a while and I finally just broke down and bought some at the store this past weekend. I got the Fage brand and tried it with honey, and YUMMM it's like a little piece of heaven! SOOO creamy and ... Read more
Part of the nutrition challenge this week is to review how important timing is in what you eat. I took the quiz about strength training and I got a whopping big fat F (50%) lol. I had never taken that quiz before and the info was really intere... Read more
I did absolutely jack this week. There, I said it. I was at a conference for work from Mon-Thurs, which was just downward spiral after downward spiral. I drank excessively and ate excessively, played golf for the first time, and sprained my a... Read more
From Ralph Waldo Emerson (and in the SP article)
"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."
I would say this is only the f... Read more

I always forget about the fish. I don't have any fish that often, because my hus... Read more
Seeing as I'm a master snacker, it's not too hard to think of things that I can eat. However, thinking of things that meet my goals AND satisfy me is completely different.
1. Apple slices and a good aged cheddar. I LOVE cheese, but it'... Read more
Okay, super huge breakthrough today?? I ate IN my cal range, IN all my other ranges (well, 1 under for protein, but seriously I'm not holding that one gram against myself) and drumroll.....WITHIN the sodium range! Plus I got 5 servings of frui... Read more
So for the sodium challenge I took sampling of my most commonly used foods in the house. And it wasn't nearly as bad as I expected, shockingly, but it wasn't great either.
Bread (brownberry health nut) = 170mg/slice
frozen veggies = 85... Read more
So, I'm not big on making excuses, but I really didn't have the best situation going on the past week to help me succeed. Instead of whining about it, I'm going to put all my stupid excuses in a list and figure out how I could have done better.... Read more
Ever since I got pregnant with my daughter, I have had an intense craving for sweets. Previously, I only wanted salty things, fries, chips, fried chicken, etc. The second I got pregnant I wanted ONLY sugar and sweets. This is how I knew it wa... Read more
And the best part of being down 7lbs.....food is slowly losing it's power on me. Honestly, for the past several days I have not thought about food all day long, which is a HUGE accomplishment for me. I normally plan my day around food, and am ... Read more
A lot of people see Subway as a healthy food place, probably largely due to the "Jared" commercials. But they forget to read the fine print. To be honest, it's a much healthier option than other fast food out there and their subs are generally... Read more
I've dealt with the disordered eating issues for so long now that at the beginning of this 100 day challenge it seemed like there was no way I could change what I was doing. But in reality, it's easier than I think it is, I just have to want to... Read more
