What I didn’t say.

What I didn’t say.

I haven’t had a scale in exactly 6 weeks. My weigh in will be the moment of truth when I see if I can successfully do this without the obsession of my scale. Already, in my head, I’ve been doing the math on what numbers would be acceptable to see. What numbers would upset me. What … Continue reading

13.1

13.1

So, I did it. Well, actually I haven’t done it. But I’m going to do it. I will press the “pay” button and have registered myself (and Kevin) for our very first HALF MARATHON. I pressed it. WTFWTFWTF This is the same feeling I had as I was contemplating my first Tri. The self doubt. … Continue reading

It’s a Woman’s Job

It’s a Woman’s Job

We, as women, are each other’s biggest critics. We are constantly competing with other women and finding ways to tear them down. We say the woman eating the salad knows she needs to eat a cheeseburger and the woman eating the cheeseburger knows she needs to eat a salad.  The stay at home mom is … Continue reading

Healthy Bucket List

Healthy Bucket List

I love Authentically Emmie’s Blog and her recent Bucket List post was no exception. It got me really thinking though. Here are hers: 1. Head up in a crowd I walk pretty confidently and typically have my head up. Though, I won’t lie. Some outfits give me more confidence than others. I’m working on always showing that I’m … Continue reading

All Aboard the Fatty Relief Wagon

All Aboard the Fatty Relief Wagon

I received an email from one of my besties telling me to sign up for a half marathon and run it with her and some of our friends. Initially, I laughed. A lot. But, then I got that itch. That, I haven’t trained in a minute and it feels so good when I do kind … Continue reading

Edamame Salad

Edamame Salad

I’ve had quite a few request on Instagram for the Edamame Salad I’ve been eating, so I thought I’d share this super simple recipe. I stumbled on it somewhere online, but honestly cannot remember where. Thangs you need: 4 cups of shelled, cooked and cooled edamame 3/4 feta cheese (I used reduced fat feta) 3/4 … Continue reading

How Do I Meal Prep?

How Do I Meal Prep?

 “I want to eat more clean but that shit takes forever during the busy week without prep.” A good friend of mine asked for some tips in the form of a post, so I’m a kind enough soul to oblige. I honestly think people try and get too fancy when they start eating clean and over … Continue reading

On Your Left

On Your Left

Cobwebs, flat tires, and my wraps that desperately need to be re-wrapped. What is the PSI again? How does this pump work? KEEEEVVVVIIIINNNN. ‘MERGENCY!!!  He gets off a conference call and comes to my aid. My bike rack needs to be put back on. How do I do that again? Apparently by breaking a nail and trying … Continue reading

What is healthy?

What is healthy?

I’ve read that some 95% of people regain their lost weight and many gain even more than what they originally lost. Weight loss has two sides: mental and physical. Most people *think* they have the mental aspect down, but when shit hits the fan there is no telling what happens. Weight loss is probably more … Continue reading

Samoas Oatmeal

Samoas Oatmeal

I’m on an oatmeal kick. I can’t get enough. I love making the old fashioned oats where I can really play with the flavors and recipe. I’m a Samoas Cookie freak. I don’t buy them because I’d eat them all. In one sitting. And all as in, all of the boxes ever made. So, I … Continue reading
