I am seriously excited about this week's round of recipes (I know, I know, what else is new) because I'm starting a brand new workout program Monday!! Have y'all heard of 22 Minute Hard Corps???  It's Tony Horton's newest workout program and it's daily exercises, done at home in...

Last week the sun was shining (a rare thing this time of year in the Pacific Northwest).  I packed up me and the kids (which, if you have small children, you know is no small feat) and took them to the zoo. There are rare times when I'm able to enjoy the moment...

Hey y’all! Welcome back to the weekly recipe round-up! If you are looking for TASTY and HEALTHY dinner recipes…then here you go! This week’s theme (because y’all know I like having a theme each week) is “serve with” – meaning each recipe will have an additional side recipe. I totally just did all the hard work for you! Now you just need to get cookin’! My source? The Cooking Light Magazine (I seriously get SUPER excited when I see a new Cooking Light magazine at the library)! You’re probably...

Courage is something everyone wants…it’s something everybody strives to have or does their damn hardest to pretend they have. Courage is the absence of fear, right? Courage is the absence of weakness, isn’t it?  People who are courageous are not, scared, don’t you think? WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!!! Courage IS the determination, the strength, the resolve to FEEL that FEAR and DO it anyway! It is NOT one or the other…it is NOT be courageous or be fearful…it is both. You can be both.  You can feel both.  And admitting THAT is courage...

Spring has sprung! We have red tulips growing in our front yard, my husband and kids just planted purple and pink petunias in our backyard while I did some good ole’ fashioned meal prepping AND it has been sunny this whole entire week!!! (And just FYI, I live in the Pacific Northwest so we can go weeks at a time without ever seeing the sun). I grew up in Texas where the sun is out ALL the time so naturally, we took it for granted. I never realized how...

Have you heard of the Japanese art of 'kintsukuroi'? I just heard about it today at work and thought it was absolutely perfect and beautiful...

  The theme this week is – things you can wrap in lettuce! Any of these recipes would be great for lunch OR dinner – talk about versatI firstility AND deliciousness AND healthy food! You’re welcome!! When I first heard about wrapping burgers, tuna, etc. in lettuce wraps, I thought - no thank you!  I like carbs!  I like tortillas and bread and hamburger buns!   But, I gave it a try over 3 years ago because my husband was doing the paleo thing and I've never looked back! So, if you feel...

Have you ever heard of a Pray Rain Journal? Me neither…until today. I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts on my way to work this morning– Your Kick Ass Life – and Andrea Owen mentioned a Pray Rain Journal. I thought, “Hmmm…that name is pretty cool but other than that, I have no idea what that means.” Just hearing that name brought a wave of calm and peace within me. Go on – say it out loud. Pray Rain Journal. It kind of rolls off your tongue, doesn’t it? When I...

Week 12 of weekly dinner recipes (how has it been 12 weeks already?!?) is here!!!! The theme this week…drum roll please…is dinner recipes from my online accountability groups!  I usually have about 2 going on at a time (like right now) and in case you don’t know what they are (where have you been?) than here’s a quick explanation: A BIG piece of this health and fitness road I’ve been traveling on is running online, health and nutrition-focused accountability groups. We offer meal plans, clean-eating recipes, support, fitness and...

  I have a question for you….how do you talk to yourself? And no, I don’t mean where you are when you talk to yourself (we all do it, don’t lie) or why you talk to yourself or where you are when you talk to yourself…I mean HOW. HOW do you talk to yourself when you make a mistake? HOW do you talk to yourself when you look in the mirror?  HOW do you talk to yourself when you accomplish something?  HOW do you talk to yourself when you fail? It’s kind...
