Moment of Truth Thursday - Week 3 + Pizza Crust!

Now that I think about it... maybe it wasn't the WISEST decision to make amazing Cauliflower Crust Pizza the night before an official weigh-in.  Buuuuut, I had just purchased my nooch (nutritional yeast) and I've been excited about this crust recipe for the last 24 hours straight :)  So I did it... on a weeknight. ...

Pooch Run Success + Kale Salad

AWESOME NEWS:  my plan to run with doggie last night was a SUCCESS!!!  Woot Woot!  It was a beautiful evening out, warm but not too warm, and it felt good to move.  I had been anticipating the run all day, was a bit nervous to fail... but once I got out there, it came back to me.  I once trained for and ran a 10K (in 73 min - not super fast, but I ran the whole way)... ...

Pooch to 5K + Cauliflower Pizza Crust

I'm in a weird mood:  Kind of blah, kind of numb, kind of unmotivated.  Not sure why.  Nothing came to mind to write about tonight - and worse than that, nothing sounded good for dinner.  I stared into the fridge, to no avail.  Then I stared into the pantry, to no avail.  Then the freezer... nothing.   So I just didn't eat.  That is very unusual for me.   ...

Getting to know me + Power Yogurt

It's Monday.  Not just any Monday... the Monday after daylight-savings... UGH! It was so hard to pry myself out of bed this morning!  I did it, though I was about 10 minutes late to work.   And yet, I was still the first one here. ... Read more » about Getting to know me + Power Yogurt

An extra hour to... PLAY! and Greek Yogurt

We are just LOVING this nicer (warmer) weather!  Babycakes loves being outside. She literally begs for it on the drive home now after work:  "Outside" "Playground" "Play" she says demands from the backseat, getting louder and more emphatic as we get closer to home.  So we usually walk to the neighborhood playground before dinner, swing for what seems like forever, and run around and go down the slide(s) a few times... ...

Saturday Exploration & Chickpea Salad

I don't know about you, but Saturdays have changedOh yes.  They are no longer the lazy days for sleeping in 'til 10 and eating brunch or starting the day at noon.  No, my Saturdays usually start earlier than the weekdays.  Monday through Friday like clockwork I have to wake Babycakes up around 7 to get out the door each morning; but without fail on Saturday, she's up around 6.  What's UP with that?!?!  I guess she just knows she gets to spend the day with ...

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.

Mini-milestones - Are those new jeans?

As you may know, I'm two weeks into this thing...into the daily blogging experience, into the newly focused weight-loss mode, etc.  And though I do have specific short-term and long-term goals set out that I'm working towards, I'm finding there are little milestones along the way that are so fun to celebrate as well: ...
