Now, it warms my heart that my Daddy is teaching his 3rd generation to fish and one day will have them in his garden beside him pulling those weeds and picking the vegetables. .

  • Healthy, delicious dinner in about 25 minutes! Dinner used to mean fancy casseroles, heavy recipes - you know the ones, the complicated recipes that had loads of ingredients and calories. Or, it was fast food because we didn't have time to wait for me to cook the 2 hour dinner. Now, it's simple, clean, whole food meals...and they taste better than those 2 hour dinners used to! Healthy can be faster than fast food. What did I do tonight? I quickly chopped vegetables, a little EVOO, salt and pepper, roasted in the toaster oven at 450 for about 10 min, broiled for 5 min. Chicken had a little EVOO, salt, pepper and Montreal Chicken seasoning. Air fried for 15 min. Served with fresh Basil Pesto from Costco. Minimal clean-up to top it off. BTW - even the teenagers like the roasted veggies!

  • This. Above everything else, I cherish my family. Being a mom has always been my favorite job. I've done a lot of other things in my life, and could have done more, but nothing could or ever will bring me the joy of my children, and now my grandchildren. How about you, what has brought you the most happiness in your life? .

  • It took some time for me to realize healthy doesn't mean difficult or time consuming. Feeding our bodies the nutrition it needs mean eating, not starving. Treat your body good, shop the perimeter of your grocery store for the bulk of your items and you won't go wrong. .

My journey began in 2012 when I made the choice not to relinquish my inner youthful feeling into the stereotypical average middle aged overweight woman. I strongly believe if you want to lose weight and keep it off, you have to discover your “why”. Your “why” will be the motivation it takes to stick with a new healthy way of living.

Stick around. Let’s do this together. Day by day. Meal by meal. Workout by workout…
