A Hip Downtown Eatery + {Hip Fat}

I was having a bit of a "down day" over the weekend.  A little bit of the same sentiments going through my head as that brutally honest Monday, but also some new thoughts, some new discouragements.  Yes, I have soooooooo much to be thankful for!  Yes, I've come a loooooong way.  Yes, I've lost 47 pounds.  But... ...

Veggie Garden Progress + {Pink Kale Juice}

I am so excited that dear hubby helped me plan, dig, and build my first real veggie garden this weekend.  It's still too cold to plant (hence the indoor tabletop garden to start), but getting the infrastructure and soil ready for planting is most of the hard work!   I scoured the aisles of the local Lowe's to determine what sort of material I wanted to use for the sides / walls of my raised vege ...

B-Vitamins for Energy are NO JOKE!

I don't like April Fools' Day.  I hate realizing I've been duped and believed something that is just a joke lie.  (Like last year when my friend shared a sonogram on her FB page, to which I responded with some long mushy congratulatory rambling of excitement, only to find out it was a joke.  Seriously though, who jokes about THAT?!?!)  Well this weekend, I discovered something that is definitely NO JOKE.  You've pro ...

Broccoli Babies + {Asian Lime Salmon}

As promised, today I am sharing with you the recipe for the delicious Asian Lime Salmon I made this week (the same day that Babycakes' Pancakes were born).  If you can't tell, someone enjoyed their meal ------------>  Moi!  The other thing you can probably tell?????  I don't really like rice.  ESPECIALLY white rice.  I left about 90% of it on the plate.  But, dear hubby, who is half Korean, loves Loves LOVES whi ...

Photo Food Log # 2 + {Pinterest}

First of all, I joined the weight loss blogger bandwagon this week - and FINALLY ordered some PB2!!  I found a combo pack from Amazon that came with both the regular pb flavor and the chocolate pb flavor.   What is PB2?  It's basically peanut butter powder.  They have extracted out the oils from the peanuts, and subsequently most of the fat too.  It has some awesome stats:  2Tbsp = 45 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, and 5g of protein.  So now that they have arrived, I am in exper ...

Weigh-In #5 + {Babycakes' Pancakes}

I made a fabulous Asian Lime Salmon for dinner last night which you can see here ------>  I was planning on detailing that recipe on the blog today, but something even more amazing happened in the midst of my creation.   Babycakes wanted my attention.   She had missed me all afternoon.  She was chomping at the bit for Momma time.  So dinner prep became Momma/Babycakes time.  I had her help me stir the marinade, and she loved being such a helper.  When it was ...

Wins & Losses + {Home, the Perfect Nest}

Janetha called it lazy, but I (& the other 433+ readers of her blog) called her recent Wins & Losses blog post super fun and creative!  She's also the clever gal that came up with the "Get to know the blogger" survey in this past post.  Anywho, in the spirit of her blog post, I will start out with a recent win. ...
