Foodie

Next week is Christmas.  Have you done your shopping?  I haven't done much shopping at all.  I should probably get on it.  Just in case you're still searching for the perfect gift or stocking stuffer, I thought I would go ahead and put my list out there.  All the lists out there seem to be [...]

There's nothing wrong with Thanksgiving eating but there is a problem with leftovers.  It's especially hard to be one of those people who HATES to throw food away.  Continuing the Thanksgiving eating for many days after Thanksgiving can be a problem. I woke up yesterday and saw a lot of food in the trash including [...]

The day after Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving yesterday. I was hosting this year which took up a lot of time.  It was hard to keep up with everything and keep blogging.  I'll give you the short version of the holiday.  On Wednesday night, we had a little get together with some friends.  I didn't get [...]

My Thanksgiving eating tip

I'm so excited.  I love the holidays because this is the one of two times the family gets together and we have a good time. Of course there is always reason to give thanks and to eat some good food.  It's always hard during the holidays to slow the eating down when you're being tempted [...]

Everyone is very focused on the holidays and looking forward to Thanksgiving, right? Fall is my favorite season because of all the great foods that come back into season.  I wanted to share with you some of my favorites of the seasons.  Spoiler alert:  you will not see pumpkin on this list.  Don't get me [...]

Meal prep moved to Saturday

Happy Saturday night.  Most people are out doing interesting things and I'm blogging.  But I wanted to let you know that I'm not dead.  I'm still here.  I'm just trying to figure everything out.  I may or may not be struggling with documenting everything on social media.  I'll stop complaining about it because I signed [...]

I walked into a store last Saturday and they were playing Christmas carols.  I had to think to myself, "wasn't it just Halloween?"  I guess we're completely giving up on Thanksgiving this year in lieu of the other holidays. My plan is to come up with some dishes that you can share around the holiday [...]

Yep I was sick!  That's all I could talk about but I'm glad that it's passed.  I actually want to get moving again.  I guess the best thing about getting sick was it happened after a marathon which forced me into rest/recovery mode.  Things are almost back to normal but I can't hear out of [...]

I was listening to sports radio today and someone spoke about losing weight.  It was asked if being overweight was an unhappy thing because most weight loss stories begin with someone saying they were unhappy with their size. I think it's a trap people fall in after they lost weight.  I've said it many times [...]

The Sunday setup on Monday

Good morning everyone!  I'm getting back on my workout routine.  I went to Group Power class this morning and I almost died.  Everything is an increased weight factor and it was hard.  But I made it through. I wanted to stay in bed but I got up to go.  Sometimes you just have to make [...]
