Look, losing weight is never going to be easy.

I’m very open about my intentions and goals in losing weight. I want to be because it means that others will hold me accountable, and it helps me do the right thing. I also have never had real guidance on this journey, so it helps me to write these things out, to better understand my…

Luxury English Muffins

When B and I took our trip to Portland, we had a few really amazing breakfasts at Urban Farmer – a really airy, fresh food restaurant in The Nines hotel downtown.

The holidays are here and I can’t tell you how many parties and food related events I have this month. I have a ton of pot-luck parties between the one at my office, a late Friendsgiving and my friends’ annual Festivus party. Not to mention Christmas and New Years Eve and everything in between. I…

September’s Monthly Body Transformation

It’s time again – my monthly body transformation video. I still hate doing these because I feel very insecure about them, but I know that at the end, seeing the progress will be helpful. When I dropped 30 pounds in 2012, there was somewhat of a mental block for me – I could never see…

H-E-B made my meals REAL simple.

You guys know that I’m constantly trying to find ways to save time -especially lately. It’s the busiest time of year at work for me, and I’m sometimes not leaving until the sun sets. When I get home, I still have to sometimes walk the dog, do the dishes, work some more, and tidy up…

Is working out with your spouse worth it?

Bryan and I have tried our adventures in working out together. It has been so much fun, and something we constantly look forward to doing together. We encourage one another during weight sessions and push each other during cardio. Afterward, we come home and eat a clean meal together. I’m most successful when I have someone…

There are some days where you just want a beautifully cooked piece of fish. Salmon is one of my favorites. I absolutely love to cook a good piece of salmon, with asparagus and mashed sweet potatoes. See below for one of my favorite, simple recipes.
