Remember working out in the ’80’s & ’90’s?

I do! I don't know if there are still any around, but I remember when the only gym in town was, Bally Total Fitness. Corey Everson was the reigning queen of fitness and the workout magazine were much better than they are now. Working out in those days was all about being seen in the … Continue reading Remember working out in the ’80’s & ’90’s?

Fat shaming ninja strikes out at me

While these are what I prefer to eat: I know this is how I MUST eat: Today is my 50th birthday. People tell my I don't look fifty. I certainly do not feel 50 so why must I own to it? I think I will fudge my age a bit. Don't tell anyone, K? My … Continue reading Fat shaming ninja strikes out at me

Paleo tortilla recipe

I'm usually very skeptical about anything that needs to be baked being called, 'paleo'. By the time enough sweetener and odd starches have been added to make it palatable and hold together, it is a far cry from 'true' paleo food∗. I was trolling Pinterest looking for non-paleo recipes calling themselves paleo recipes when I … Continue reading Paleo tortilla recipe

What are you willing to do to get what you want?

No, this is not another Pinterest post. It is something nice to look at whenever this post bothers you. I am going to admit to you that I am not at my goal weight. I'm no where near my goal weight. I am, and have been, a work in progress. Mostly because I find it … Continue reading What are you willing to do to get what you want?

Paleo, cancer, and forgiveness

  Some one near and dear to my heart just finished up her last bit of cancer treatment last month. It was an incredible blow to all who know her when the news broke that she had stage three breast cancer. She showed none of the genetic markers for being predisposed for cancer. Most doctors … Continue reading Paleo, cancer, and forgiveness

When the world finally catches up with you…

I went with my husband yesterday to his doctor appointment. Nothing serious, just a routine visit for blood work, etc. The nurse took us back to the examination room to wait for the doctor as he finished up with another patient. On the back of the door, and all across one wall in particular, were … Continue reading When the world finally catches up with you…

Breaking down a recipe

One of the tools I've been using for years now, is the Sparkpeople food tracker. You can enter in what you ate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner & it will break it all down into fats, carbs, protein, and fiber. I took a salad recipe from Natalie at Tastes Lovely that she has labeled as … Continue reading Breaking down a recipe

Exposing false information regarding the paleo diet

While Pinterest and other social media sites can be good sources of condensed, easy to digest information about healthy eating, the paleo diet seems to be the one that most people just can't seem to get right. When I see such bad information I have to wonder, 'Have they done ANY research?'.  For today's post, … Continue reading Exposing false information regarding the paleo diet

What’s with all the cheese? Keto diet drawback.

At first glance, the Ketogenic diet looks pretty good. It is filled with fat friendly recipes, meat, and vegetables. The one big draw back of it is that it is filled with cheese. Milk, and foods made from milk, can cause inflammation, constipation, and a build up of mucus within your body. I have done … Continue reading What’s with all the cheese? Keto diet drawback.
