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!). ...

Got 3 Minutes??? A WEEK?

If you don't have 3 minutes a week to spare, you need some serious help.  (ie. stop. drop. roll! your life is on fuego!!)  A new study came out by the BBC that claims you can get fit(ter) by exercising a certain way for 3 minutes a week.  You read that right.  Not three minutes a day, even!!  3 MINUTES A WEEK.  I was intrigued.  Are you?  Are you alive??? ...

A Case of the Mondays --- Brutally Honest

I thought about just not posting.  But, that's not really fair or transparent.  So here I am, in full blahness and frustration bearing my soul thoughts to you :) I'm hoping you can relate to this and in the end, find encouragement.  Even less than a week in to this new journey of blogging and refocus on weight loss, I am wishing the whole process was easier.  No, not creating a blog post.  That's re ...

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 ...

I Shall Loathe a Little Less...

There aren't very many things that I loathe in this really loathe.  But, the tupperware drawer has GOT to be one of the top five!!  UGHHHHHH!  Every time I open it, I am filled with disgust, and regret, and ANGER!!!  Where is that dang matching lid?!?!?!?!?  So today I did something about it.  I've thought about it a thousand times: what would my life be like if I started ...

My hubby didn't get me a parka for nothin'!

Whew!  I'm tired... but in a good way.  I decided today was the day to start my "lunch" exercises and make the most of my mid-day break.  Though 40 degrees and windy outside, I bucked up and admitted to myself: my hubby didn't get me a down Patagonia parka for nothing!  Appropriately bundled, I headed out the door to walk to my newfound favorite lunchspot: an organic cafe in an office building nearby...
