I’ve been sick but I’m trying to get on the mend quicker so I can run my second marathon in 6 days on Saturday.  I’ve been overloading on vitamin C and medicating up.  The Gusher will be my first TEXAS marathon and I’m glad to say it will be run in my hometown!  Things are […]

I’ve been trying to come up with great veggie side dishes because that’s mostly what I eat.  People seemed so focused on the meat main event, but I’m not a huge meat eater.  I do prefer my meat on the side because I classify myself as a flexitarian. I would probably not eat meat if […]

Last weekend (and probably again this weekend) I suggested that Willie take his go at making fresh pasta!  We had a deal, if he made the pasta I would make the sauce and meatballs.  I’ve always wanted to make my own sauce but I thought it would take a long time.  Maybe I’ve just hung […]

There’s been so much focus on Willie cooking, I think people may have forgotten that I like to cook too.  I must admit he’s been picking up a lot of the food slack in the house because marathon training has kept me busy.  He keeps me well fueled. I’ve had a little bit of free […]

I haven’t had a taste for anything so I’ve ended up eating things like oatmeal for dinner or just peanut butter roll ups. Those aren’t the worst things in the world, but they definitely aren’t the […]

I don’t know about you but I love oatmeal. In fact, I’ve been eating oatmeal a lot lately. Last week, all I wanted to eat was oatmeal so I proudly shamefully admit I ate oatmeal for dinner last week and tried to do it last night, but Willie stopped me. This is how much I […]

It’s Labor Day so we’re going to break away from our normal routine. We usually have eggs and oatmeal in our house for breakfast and it’s probably my most favorite meal of the day. But I think I found a good alternative a yummy alternative for my oatmeal fix. So let’s all have pumpkin pancakes […]

My husband had to leave me to deal with some family obligations and it hasn’t been a fun time for me. I wish I was able to go but life got in the way and by life I mean work. I’ve been spending a lot of time alone with the dogs. It really stinks because […]

When we started our weight loss journey we had to cut a lot of foods from our diet, including red meat. We just don’t eat a lot of it around our house. We went on a serious campaign of fish, ground turkey and chicken and we ate these things everyday. It can get a little […]
