Meal prep rockstar and other stuff I’m loving this week.

On Saturday, I was all nestled in my blogging chair ready to write about things I love from this past week. {Totally missed a Valentine’s Day post so this is my attempt at it…late. Haa.} I somehow got distracted {as I usually do when I sit down to blog} and then decided to wait until …

You asked, I answered: Time & Motivation all here in one neat little post.

With my stepped up dedication to end my weight loss/get fit JOURNEY and finally reach the land of MAINTENANCE, I’ve been hearing two questions over and over. — How do you find the time? — Where do you get the motivation? Over and over and over. REALLY. At least 3-5 times a day errrryday. I …

Make the time. Do the work. Reach your goal.

Today begins Week 3 of the Bodybuilding.Com Transformation Challenge and I think I’m doing pretty well. Have I even mentioned this on here yet? I think I did. I swear, between here, my FB page, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram, I can’t remember what I mentioned where!! Anyhow, I’d be working out hard whether or not …

Foodie Penpals: January 2013 Box from Mariana!

I don’t know what is going on, but I swear each month gets better and better. Through luck of the draw, the person I get as my Foodie Penpal just KNOWS what I want!! I mean, I give a little guidance, but goodness gracious–they just know and it’s ON POINT. Take for instance this month. …

So, I practiced Paleo for a month and…

I already knew that throughout this weight loss/get fit/get healthy journey I had developed some major willpower. Whether it was controlling my portions, choosing grilled over fried {or fruit over cake}, working out when I wanted to lounge in bed, I had to set my mind to do it. WILL myself to do it. Such …

A fresh prospective & gymtasticness.

I love how a new day can give you fresh prospective, make you feel better, and come to your senses again. I woke up on Thursday feeling a lot better after the whole DC Nike Half pity party I threw for myself the night before. There was just a lot of awesomeness going around: I …

Yum. Yum. Paleo.

The other day I mentioned tweaking my diet—and again, by “diet” I’m speaking of the way I eat as a whole, not a “diet-diet” because diets don’t work. {In my own personal opinion concerning my own food consumption of the past thirty-something years, of course. SlimFast, cabbage and liquid diets never got me too far!} …

Foodie Penpals November 2012: Box from Allison!

Seriously. These Foodie Penpals boxes just rock my socks off every month. I swear, the through the random matchup, I keep getting people that just KNOW what I love and want–with very little direction at all. Such as the case with my box this month from Allison of The Greens and Yellows. I gave her …

Foodie Penpals: September 2012 box from Michelle!

It’s time for another Foodie Penpals Reveal Day, y’all! I seriously got some great stuff this month and could not wait to dive into all of it. I also think Michelle must have had ESP when shopping for my items. I mean, all I said was I generally like to receive healthy foods, some treats …
