On the road again

After a super fun weekend with family and food we are about to head back to the beach again for work.    This weekend we enjoyed several of our prepped foods, but I whipped up this high protien veggie dip before we added all the carbs from the sliders and chips to balance out the…

No …. I did not disappear… I’m Here!

This girl has been SUPER BUSY cooking and buying fishes and watching movies. Friday was filled with Massive Cooking.  Lets see.  I made my bulk spagetti sauce, mexican meat, meat pie filling, all meat chili, as well as roast beast and roast pork–we use the last two for filling lettuce tacos or making sliders and…

Back in tha Ham

First day back and all kinds of interruptions.  Not sure how great my writing will be on weeks I am in Birmingham.  Doctor appointments, people in and out of the house and of course GRAND BABIES.  I am about to go and steal away my youngest from daycare. I have been working with my daughter…

Food Ruts … Deadly?

Ruts may not be exactly deadly, but I do believe FOOD RUTS are seriously unhealthy, but more on that in a minute.  Have I mentioned how excited I am about my new meal planner? Well, I am! It’s called MealBoard. Its part of my plans to KILL the Food Ruts in my life. I live…

I’m losing …… scratching head

I’m kind of stumbling around here in a daze.  I’m eating and losing weight.  I wasn’t even fully on the program yet.  Just getting my ducks in a row and started with Low Carb High Fat and working on the exercise plan–and I am losing.  I realize that the 5.2 pounds I’m down will bounce…

What’s under the hood?

  No, I am not talking about a car or truck. NO, I am NOT about to flash someone–Sorry–it isn’t that kind of blog. Maybe I should have waited until I got to the end of this to tell these things … Maybe folks would read longer??  Oh, well … maybe next time. Today, is…

BAd WorD, BaD WOrd, BAD WORD!!!!

Can you guess how I got here??  Today was supposed to be a post sharing about how I like/love/or hate my FitBit, but it is going to be about how Donna “The Bad Word Trainer Nazi” kicked my butt for two hours.  All I want to do at this moment is lay in the bed…

Today is over …. THANK GOD!

I have hurt and drug all day long.  I got better as the evening went on.  THANK GOD!  Hoping that I wake up on time tomorrow so that I join the group workouts.  😀 After two years of talking … I ordered myself a heart rate monitor, The Mio Alpha Strapless Heart Rate Monitor, click…

Sitting here in my Bikini

Yes, you read that right.  And NO, I am NOT posting picks.  I know I wear my suit in front of other people, but I lie to myself and think about Mikey’s fabulous expression, and I pretend that I am just that HOT.  Pictures however require that I acknowledge reality.  I prefer my Fantasy. The…

I’m Cautiously Optimistic…

Now, that we have dealt with my image issues, back to the subject of what I am cautiously optimistic about … that I have finally discovered a meal plan that will work to help me lose some weight, and allow me to workout harder–the way I like. I tend to gain when I lift heavy…
