Weekly Weigh-In #4 + Things my dad taught me

Awwww, my dad.  You may have "met" him in my Important Things in life post from last week.  But what you don't know is that he has always been a great encourager in my life, always knowing just the right thing to say at just the right moment.  I am soooo thankful for him!  (Aren't we cute in this pic from Christmas?) ...

Infused with style/artistry...

Each day as I would write my next blog post, it just didn't feel completely right.   The structure was good.  The key elements were there; but it was missing something.  The site was too bland, too gray, too techy to fully express who I am and this exciting journey that I'm on.  So last night, my live-in web developer (dear hubby) helped me redesign the blog to infuse more style/artistry, more of me.  I am very happy with the new look!  Being married to the best Drupal developer in Denver definitely has its benefits!  Next item for refinement: my food pictures.

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. ...

Recipe: Homemade V8 --- yummola!

A reader of my blog recently asked me: "How'd you lose that first 40 pounds?"  For me the keys were: smaller portions and the addition of veggie juice(s) to my diet.  Yes, some exercise here and there too, but those two changes helped me immensely.  I haven't juiced in awhile, so I thought I'd make some this weekend and post up the recipe.  My two favorites are: Mean Green (full of kale, spinach, parsley, lemon, & apple) and Homemade V8 (recipe ...
