A couple of months ago, I started a new job and with a new job came new benefit options. After weighing all of our options, we decided that it would be better financially to move the kids and I to my new employers plan and off of my husbands plan. The monthly cost was about… Continue reading United Health-Doesn’t-Care

Happy Halloween! The day that all of us parents look forward to and dread all year long. Dressing our little darlings up and taking them out door to door in an effort to obtain enough candy to put them in a diabetic coma. I guess we're honing their skills in being cute and friendly for… Continue reading Halloween and the Switch Witch
My girls (and let's face it, I do too) love dessert. But I don't want to get in the habit of eating unhealthy desserts. Our favorite treats around here are ice cream and Popsicles. So I went to task and made chocolate peanut butter protein pops. Ingredients: 2 scoops Juice Plus Complete Dutch Chocolate powder… Continue reading Making clean eating fun!
Week one of whole 30 (ish, I've kind of cheated this week) and boot camp is done. Boot camp on Wednesday kicked my butt. My asthma flared up and I had a really hard time breathing. Today I made sure to take a couple of puffs off of my inhaler and that helped. Or maybe… Continue reading Week one done!
I attended my 2nd bootcamp class this morning. Man getting up at 5am to be there at 5:45 was rough. Not as hard as I thought it would be, but this is definitely a change for me. There were 4 of us in class this morning so the atmosphere was a lot more exciting for… Continue reading Boot camp class #2
After eating not great for a week and drinking more than usual, I'm really looking forward to getting back to eating Whole 30 compliant tomorrow. I've also got another boot camp class at 5:45 tomorrow morning! I'm sure I'll be very sore come Tuesday, but it will be worth it in the long run.
Now, obviously I'm never going to get in shape and fit with diet alone. So today I started boot camp classes with Bridgeport Fitness. I originally heard about Renea (the owner/trainer) from my neighbor Kristina. Kristina's son goes to the same school as Renea's son (the same my daughter will go to in the fall… Continue reading Adding exercise
Don't think you can eat healthy and delicious? Wrong my friend. This is my favorite part about doing the whole 30. Actually enjoying what I am eating and knowing that I'm not eating food that is bad for me or chock full of chemicals. This mornings breakfast: (serves 2) 1 medium potato 3oz all natural… Continue reading Eating healthy and delicious
I know, I know, it's been a LONG time since I posted anything. I have no real reason as to why, just sheer forgetfulness. I get sucked into updating Facebook about everything in 140 character updates (or more?) and pictures that I forget that I have an actual blog. Well, it's time to dust it… Continue reading Knock knock.. This thing on?
