Weight Loss

This past weekend, I was at Fitbloggin in Savannah! There were lots of things for us to try while there. The biggest take away from the weekend was getting my numbers checked at the Walgreens Way to Well truck. Everyone needs to get their numbers checked. I spoke about how Willie and I didn’t do […]

I’m riding in the car back home father a really long day. Fitbloggin in Savannah has come to a close and I’m back in Texas. I’m not going to go into much detail right now about the conference because there are some things I really want to share with all you readers. I learned a […]

This past weekend I took my bestie to Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods!  She had never been.  I was shocked when I found this out because I love those places.  Any health foodie loves Whole Foods, right?  Yes I know it’s expensive BUT you can find stuff in that store you can’t get most places. […]

Folks, we’re heading to China  and the internet situation there isn’t as open as what we enjoy here.  I don’t know what kind of access I’m going to have to the internet.  I’ll set up a few posts to post while I’m away, but for the most part I’m going to be out of pocket. […]

I don’t drink my calories and when I do…it’s painful.  I would just rather eat my calories than waste them on a drink.  Most people aren’t that way.  When we decided to lose the weight, we did it cold turkey.  There was no more soda, juice, fru-fru coffee drinks or alcohol.  That was something I […]

There’s only one thing that you need to know: I’m tired! I feel like I finally hit the limit of doing too much and not getting enough rest.  Yesterday, “Dr. Dawn” told me to take a break and she’s right. Recovery is important but it’s not something I’m good at.  I like to be moving […]
