You really eat that crap?

Hahaha, I get the question in the title a LOT.   Yes, I really eat that.  That really was my breakfast one day last week.  I do not eat things like this all the time of course, but on occasion, yes I eat McDonald's food.  It is not bad, it is not good. It is food.  I also had a big ass ass salad for lunch, veggies and cheese for snacks, a small ass salad, some veggies and a steak for supper that night.  Oh and a a sip of everyone's mixed drinks to! Food is not inherently bad or good.  The wor...

Half the Woman I used to be….and yet soooo much MORE!

I am half the size I used to be....well actually less than half, and yet I am also sooo much more than I used to be.  In the photo on the left was May of 2012 when I was wearing size 26 shorts...and those shorts were so tight I needed to be in a 28. The photo in the center is when I was at my smallest in Dec of 2014 at a size 6-8.  The photo on the right is me this 2nd week in May 2017 in one leg of the same shorts from the photo on the right.  I am currently comfortably in a size 10.  My size k...

Diets Don’t Work……and the secret to what does

Snagged this image from informhealth.com on a post they did back from 2013 about diets.  This is showing many of the different diets out there....from 2013! There are lots more now!  From The Atkins Diet to The Zone Diet and all those in between.  There are more diets out there than you can shake a stick at.  I am sure you have tried several of them.  Maybe even lost some weight on them.  The book stores have shelves and shelves of different books, the grocery stores have all the different diet ...

Are You a Drinker? Do you drink too much? Too little?

Drinking is good for you……but not too much. Are you a drinker?  If so, are you drinking too much?  Or are you a sometimes drinker or a seldom drinker, and are you getting enough to drink?  And how much should we really be drinking? I’m a drinker!  I always have a bottle of water…or some coffee and on occasion a diet gingerale or some lemonade beside me so that I can take a sip every so often.  I keep myself well hydrated for the most part.  But then I also lead a minimum 11 fitness classes...

WoW…They’re So GREEEEN!

Ok, confessions time here.  The title of this blog is corny as all get out, and if you are a child of the 80's and you are a James Spader fan then you will know the title of this blog is a terrible reference to one of my very favorite movies from way back when. Tuff Turf.  I mean seriously, whats not to like.  Cool clothes, great music, and a Teen heart throb :)  All of which have absolutely nothing to do with this blog post, but for some reason I could not get it out of my mind....and yea, I am...

No More Calorie/Macro Obsession

If you have ever been on a diet, many of them want us to count something like calories, or fat grams or how many carbs we eat (macro-nutrients.)  We have to measure or weigh all of our food and spend lots of time trying to get the exact count perfect.  At least this is what I did for a long time.  I am betting you have had experience with it to. Ok, this is super embarrassing for me to admit, but at one time I was unbelievably obsessed with making sure I ate the EXACT amount of calories  or m...

3 Powerful Words

  The 3 Most Powerful Words to remember to help you achieve a sustainable healthy lifestyle I was chatting with someone the other day who began their journey towards a healthier life a few months ago.  They are on the verge of giving up for several reasons.  The first reason is impatience.  They want it all right now!  The fat loss, the 6 pack abs and eating all the foods they see everyone eating.  The second reason is that they expect perfection doing something that is difficult ...
