Don’t be Judgey – Vegan ways

Uh yeah.  I eat a plant based diet 95% of the time.  On occasion I eat fish.  On a special occasion, once or twice a year, I will eat a steak.  One thing I never really liked is chicken.  I’m lactose intolerant.  I love cheese.  That had too stop.  Eggs.  It wasn’t too hard to…

Wait a Retro Minute… The Tribulations of Non-Progressive Thought

There’s a lot of classic things, I like.  I’m currently obsessed with New Balance 574s. Yes, I wear them everywhere, to the gym, at the beach, kickin’ back on a sweet summer day in a jean mini skirt,  cute jean shorts, or must bummin with my comfy jeans. It’s so damn cooooool.  I can’t wait…

Define Birthday…

Birthday candles, the excuse to eat bad for one day, blown up number of your age ( what most don’t want unless you’re under 30), we count the days, the years of our life.  Why?!!! Because it’s a measurement of where we are at in life, how much time we have left, our mortality, our…

Saturday is your friend! and so is Fiber :)

This was my breakfast this morning. This is a great way to get some fiber in.  I try to do this early in the morning since it’s all carbs.  How much fiber are we supposed to get? 14 grams for every 1000 calories according the Harvard School of Public Health. (Ihttp://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/fiber-table/)  I got 6 grams…

180 Degree Metabolism Diet Hoax or Not?

I love this … I did a post just a few days ago about the 180 Degree Metabolism Diet. Although originally I looked at the diet, and some of it made sense, I began to have my doubts after rereading the book and some of the websites. I can’t seem to find much evidence on…

Back to My Usual Tricks

I’m boxing my little butt off!  And loving it.   Anyhow, the sprints, the gravity machine, the weights are making me feel like I’m back to normal since my hiatus from vacation, frolicking at the beach, eating ice cream, eating buttery grilled turkey sandwiches filled with cheese and sauerkraut and loving every second of it.  Now,…

I’m Juicing a Mess!

I was really excited when this juicer arrived.  It’s the Jack LaLane Juicer Pro.  I thought it would be easy, but maybe it would have helped if I read the directions. I got my carrots, pealed 3, and cut up two apples.  Mind you I did this while cooking dinner.  I dumped a carrot one…

Nut Addiction

OMG!  I can’t stop eating them.  I get home and I have a few, and I wake up and I have more and between meals I’m having some.  Actually,  I’m not just talking a few nuts… I’m talking easily 20 – 30 nuts per sitting.  Yikes.  I think as much benefits that nuts have, I…

To Be or Not to Be… La Femme

La Femme Nikita, the ultimate transformation from a convicted felon to a trained assassin. No, I’m not telling you to be a trained assassin. And granted, she may have had some help in her transformation. Nikita was forced to have a life that changed her identity, her whole being. She became not just the ultimate…

H.I.I.T. Me Baby

Are you doing the same boring treadmill day after day at the same speed, week after week, month after month, year after year? Well guess what? It’s probably time to change it up. Although we are creatures of habit and find comfort in the idea of routine, you probably find cardio extremely boring. You are…
