Fruit, veggie tips & tricks

I have recently gotten into eating grape-nuts. Funny, I hated them as a kid. (My brother and I weren’t allowed to eat a lot of sugary cereals.) Grape-nuts are crunchy, yummy, filing, healthy and have some fiber and protein. But that’s not really what this post is about. Over the summer I was eating my […]


Accountability=successful weight loss

At one point over the summer I realized I needed accountability with my food and drink intake. Even though I worked out almost every day I wasn’t monitoring my food intake and I wasn’t losing weight even though I wanted to get back to my goal weight. I needed accountability with food tracking.

To stay on plan or to not stay on plan?

My mom comes into town tomorrow night. Curt is heading to Missouri for a high school reunion. So I invited my mom out here for a girls’ weekend. I haven’t decided yet whether the time she is here I will be counting points and tracking my food. I am gonna just go with the flow. […]


Skinny doesn’t mean healthy

I used to be considered skinny. I hate that term. To me it has a negative connotation. According to Merriam-Webster, skinny means lacking sufficient flesh, very thin, emaciated; lacking usual or desirable bulk, quantity, qualities or significance. But it seems like so many of us strive to be skinny. Why is that? Why do we […]
