Big Breakfast Cookie

This is a curl up on the couch with a hot cup of coffee or tea on a cool morning kind of breakfast. I spied this Oatmeal Breakfast Cookie on Dinners, Dishes and Desserts over the weekend and it’s been on my “to make” list ever since.

I followed the recipe almost exactly as [...]

Late in The Day

This morning I just couldn’t get out of bed. I’m usually right out around 7 or 8 so it was weird to see 10:34 on my cell phone. What’s what about?

I didn’t end up eating breakfast until lunch time, and I imagine that rest of the day will follow suit. Who knows when [...]

Weekly Food Prep

I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I prepared meals for the week ahead of time. This is a weird form of life satisfaction for me. I love having breakfast and lunch options available for me and Josh, mainly because we eat at different times and I want to cut back on [...]

Intuitive Eating Take Five

It’s been two and a half weeks since I showed the world a picture of me in a too-small dress. Determined to lose weight to fit into it, I started by counting calories, then following the skinny rules, and then a couple of days of eating two much, and then reading Intuitive Eating, which [...]

330 Calorie Breakfast

Breakfast this morning consisted of a cup of mixed berries (saved for snack later), 1 slice whole wheat toast, 1 egg, 2 slices turkey bacon and 1 baby belle cheese. Not bad for a filling 330 calorie breakfast.

I’m on the fence about things like turkey bacon, there is a part of me that [...]

Berry Toast

This is my healthy alternative to fast food. I like to trick myself into thinking that eating healthier requires a lot of time, energy, effort and planning. And while sometimes it does, that isn’t always the case.

This breakfast was thrown together in just a couple of minutes and I have a feeling it’s [...]

My Attitude Adjustment

rotisserie chicken salad with brown rice

I’m finding that the best way to motivate myself and get stuff done is by changing my attitude. This isn’t easy. I’m a firm believer that if I don’t like something, I need to change it and if I can’t change it, I need to change how I [...]

My Favorite (Filling) Breakfast

Earth shattering, right? These breakfast burritos only have about 250-300 calories and they keep me full for hours! Just a scrambled egg with a little cheese and vegetables on a whole wheat wrap. So good! I found these wraps at the Fresh Market awhile ago and have been avoiding them because whole wheat wraps [...]

Work, Work, Work it Out

My workout this morning is brought to you by my love for cheesy pop music! This is the first workout that I’ve done in way too long that I was actually excited to do. It hit all of my workout requirements: 1) no watching time/countdowns/clocks etc. 2) [...]

Cultivating a Habit

The first thing I did this morning was put on my exercise clothes and start this workout that I mentioned yesterday. I’m determined to make morning exercise a habit. Only because I find it very hard to exercise in the evenings. Who I am kidding? I find it hard to exercise at all times, [...]
