  1. For a while I was reminding myself every night of 5 things that I was greatful for. Then for some reason I stopped. Thanks to this post, I'm going to start up again. It puts things in perspective. 1) That I can support my son and myself 2) That I am taking a positive step towards improving my work conditions 3) That I have the most wonderful best friend EVER!!!
  2. Well, it's been a too long since I've checked in. Waaaaay too much going on at once. But I'm slowly getting a handle on things and getting back on track. Food intake has been acceptable. Exercising has been sporadic but I'm not giving up. Working on the business has been put on hold for now. I am currenlt taking courses online to improve my job situation, so that takes priority right now. Today I'm starting a 3 day Spring cleanse. I'm just feeling the need to "re boot" and get rid of some toxins that are dragging me down. I know this will be tough because I won't be eating, just drink
  3. In this day and age it is hard NOT to compare yourself with others. You see women on the front of magazines and you thingk "I wish I could look like that". Then you read the article that tells you of the latest diet and how you can lose 15 lbs in 3 weeks. So what do you do? You buy the magazine, read the article, hit the grocery store and start your new diet. After a few days of feeling great about yourself, life throws you a curve ball and all of your good intentions are out the window. Not to worry, there will be another thin woman on another magazine touting another diet. The problem
  4. Well, a problem with the computer has not allowed me to work on my Life Goal, but I have taken the opportunity to advertise by word of mouth...and got a job with one of my neighbors! When one door closes... I have been doing good with my food intake. I have realized that I will never bee 100% Paleo. There are too many things that I am not willing to give up, such as a cocktail with friends, a little icecram with my son or jelly beans with my nieces. So I'm going to revise my goals slightly to make them more realistic to my life choices. Exercising has been a hit and miss. Because of my jo
  5. The tough thing about sticking to a plan, is when life has other ideas. I was all set to get back in the groove after resting Sunday. But alas, that was not to happen. Monday was a bust because I had to move furniture and paint the living room. I made the most out of it by exaggerating my movements, but I still felt cheated out of a work out. Tuesday I found out I had to work my regular shift, then come back to work the 11pm-7am shift, and stay on for my regular shift ending at 3pm. Ugh...I was tired just thinking about it. So I went home to whip up some dinner for that night and breakf
  6. Yikes! I'm not sure if I ROCK at anythign yet. I'll have to ponder this...
  7. Quick, easy, healthy and portable! Perfect! Thank you
  8. My son is alwqys on the goe but doesn't make time to eat breakfast. For a while I was making him smoothies but then he'd run out of time, or forget about it. If I'm lucky he'll grab a protien bar on the way out the door. Sometimes he'll heat up frozen breakfast sandwiches, but I try to stay away from those. What I'm looking for are any ideas that I can make ahead of time and he can eat on the go or just reheat in the microwave with minimal down time. I remember reading something about egg muffins that can be frozen but can't recollect where I saw it. Please help me get this kid bac
  9. Sounds interesting. I'm going to experiment on my son Thanks
  10. I invested in the Magic Bullet and it takes me less than 1 minute to make an awesome breakfast smoothie that fills me up. half banana 1/4 cup blueberries 2 tbs organic oats (uncooked) small handful fresh spinach 1/4 cup walnuts vanilla protien powder water or coconut water to cover all food (alter ingrdients to taste) Blend in Magic Bullet and you're done. Drink this slowly, chewing the nuts and oats. It will satisfy you and keep you full for quite a while. Alos, tossing some eggs, spinach, tomatoes and mushrooms in the microwave makes a great omlette that is quick and yummy. Prep t
  11. Today was a bust! Well not comlpletely since it's on lunch, but seriously, potato chips and sour cream for lunch?!?! I can blame it on my job, but actually it was me being unprepared. I dispatch so have limited time to leave my station, and where was my lunch? At home. So I made do with what was available. Thank goodness I have my walk with Raidon and my work out today. I'm actually changing the workout up a bit. I found a book in the bargain area of Barned and Noble about strength training. It had all of the same things that Steve has talked about. I like two of the work outs that t
  12. Day 4 and I'm feeling pretty darn good. Every day the dog and I have walked 1.5 to 2 miles. Then it's back home to do the Angry Birds workout or play Kinect with the kids. I've been doing great with the Paleo, and only gave in once to a bit of cookie dough. After the guilt of giving in, I started researching healthy sweet snacks and desserts. If I'm going to "cheat" at least it can be healthier than the crap you buy in the store. So I'm adding a side goal to my challenge to find healthy, delicious and esay snacks and desserts for my kiddo and I.

Pound chicken breasts to an even thickness 2. Peel ginger and garlic cloves and cube your ginger into chunks. 3. Roughly chop scallions and combine ingredients in mini-processor (Magic Bullet).
  14. Here is the pizza receipe. I found it on www.nutribulletblog.com. Inflammation-Fighting PizzaWe have been hearing a lot lately about the effects of inflammation on the body. Many who have changed their diets to include anti-inflammatory ingredients have been experiencing the benefits, including increased energy, fighting illness, reducing pain or improving skin tone. A change in what we consume and how we prepare our food is definitely worth the effort. I’m all about simplicity, especially when it comes to the kitchen! Since I am on a gluten-free diet and love a good pizza, I came up wit
  15. I recently purchased a Magic Bullet. I found a great receipe that I have been making for my son. It is a Brain Fog Buster. Basically it has: Blueberries Walnuts Banana Spinach Protien Powder Water I tweaked it a little by adding coconut water, and I use a protien powder that tastes like cake mix. I also change up the nuts when I'm out of walnuts. It tastes so good that I have been drinking it for breakfast every morning for the past week. It is remarkably filling. I also made tomato sauce for our home made pizzas. It was the best I've ever had. I will post the recipe when I have
