DELICIOUS Carrot-Ginger Soup

Today I had a little extra breathing room to make another recipe for my blog thanks to this beautiful snow that’s coming down right now-I sort of had a feeling that my 6pm class would be cancelled.  Plus I’m on Phase 1 right now of the TLS 21 Day Challenge-6 days in with 1 more […]

Green and White HEALTHY Hash Browns!!

OH MY GAWD!  This was the BEST and because it was a HIT I had to hurry up and post right away even though I really should be reading Chapter 3 for Sports Management and working on my movement analysis for Kinesiology and studying for my Exercise Phys exam this week.  I just ate a […]

My Take on Oprah’s Weight Watchers Message

Last week, in between studying for my classes I took a break and watched an on demand episode of Chicago Med.  I LOVE that new show!  It’s exactly what it sounds like and more!  It’s NBC giving ER another go around I think-but better!  The thing with on demand though is that you have to watch […]

Chicken Meatballs with Asian Vegetables

Guess what.  Dinner was a hit and sometimes in my high-maintenance blended family what ends up being a hit totally surprises me.  So I wanted to hurry up and post it before someone in my family changed their mind and said it was “ok” instead of “really good”!!!  Tonight’s dinner was really simple!  I had […]

Smoky Veggie Egg Muffins for On-the-Go Goodness

Peeps, the last two weeks have been a shit show!  Seriously. I know I’m not alone in saying that sometimes eating healthy and properly can be a challenge when faced with a daunting schedule of activities.  I mean, seriously I’m supposed to get up at 5:30am for 6 am Crossfit, get 3 kids off to […]

Misconceptions of Calorie Counting that Prevent Fat Loss

Italian Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Today, we were snowed in to 18″ and it was fantastic!  FINALLY, winter is here and I don’t mind one bit because this chick skis now!  BRING ON THE DRIFTS!  In this weather, this is when comfort food cravings REALLY set in.  But, because I have committed to myself and my family that we will […]

My 2016 New Years Fitness Resolution

    I’ve been in the contemplation stage of my New Years Resolution for a few days now and I guess that’s ok because I know without a doubt a drunken New Years Eve vow really doesn’t work.  Previously I always made resolutions but last year was different because FINALLY I met mine and then some!  […]
