(GASP)... I eat frozen meals.

There I said it.  I eat frozen meals on occasion.  I know, I "should" make all my own foods from scratch, go to the local market weekly, and whip up something delicious and healthy to provide for my family.  There's a lot of things I "should" be doing...but I just don't have time.  As I'm sure you know, there are a lot of gross frozen meals out there,  enough to potentially dissuade you from ever ...

Busy, Busy, Busy....Join the Club.

Isn't funny how in every stage of life you think you're soooo busy, and then as each stage progresses you just get even more busy?  In college I thought life was so busy - all those classes, all that studying, and all that free time to work out and hang out with friends.  Yeah, life was hard... ...

Hold the cream sauce.

I'm Italian. I grew up eating my grandmother's spaghetti every week.  I remember waking up to that powerful smell of garlic and tomatoes, evidence that my dad had been in the kitchen since 5AM. We had bread served with almost every dinner.  I love Love LOVE tomatoes. And I wholeheartedly prefer pasta to rice.  But I'm also on a diet, a very public diet that the world can see.   Does that mean I can never eat pasta again?

I don't think so. ... Read more » about Hold the cream sauce.

What is it for?

First the confession: I sometimes often shop at Walmart.  There I said it.  Judge me as you like, but I have my reasons:  a) It's the closest by distance (1/3 the distance to a regular grocery store) and b) I don't feel the need to dress up or look my best.  Ha!  Because, hey... ...

Excuses, Excuses, Excuses...

I know weight-loss is a tough topic for most of us.  It is easy to feel lots of guilt, shame, and 100 other awful things when we start thinking about our weight, where we're at, where we think we should be, etc.  So this morning, I just want to touch on some of the top excuses (reasons) I came up with personally, that have kept me from getting the body I know I deserve. ...

Week 1 Weigh-in: Moment of Truth

So...did my efforts pay off???  Before we get to this week's weigh-in/reveal, I must say I do feel like I worked harder than usual this week.  Which is a good thing.  I felt a lot more intentional.  I thought about what I ate: whether it was helping or hurting my goals.  I thought about moving and being more active, and put those thoughts into action (though I can still do more!). ...
