Losing weight when you can’t afford to.

Gym memberships, fancy protein shakes, diet pills, fitbits, expensive gym wear, personal trainer, fitness apps with a monthly payment, home gym equipment — it’s all so…expensive. But can you lose weight without it? Advertisements

Week of 04/16/17

Happy Easter! I’m posting a little later than I’d like to, because we had a fairly busy weekend. It was a fun one though!

Week of 4/9/17

Hello, friends! I’m really excited today because I’m getting ready to do what I do best — overshare way more information than anyone would probably need. That’s just who I am, so I may as well embrace it. 😉

Barbed wire and sunsets.

I remember the first time I became conscious about my weight. I was about 10 years old and I was spending the day at the public swimming pool. I had a dark green 1-piece bathing suit that wasn’t anything special, but I thought the color was pretty and matched my tanned skin and sun-bleached hair…

The first method I want to talk…

Skillet Taco Meat

As I delve deeper into the idea of meal planning/organization, I want to begin sharing some quick recipes/non-recipes that we use regularly. This taco meat is a standard around here. It’s simple, freezes well and is versatile. Sometimes I’ll put it in tortillas and make burritos, sometimes I’ll roast some sweet potatoes to go with…

5 Keys to Meal Organization

Being organized when it comes to meal time saves you. It saves you stress, time, money, calories, fat, sodium and so much more. There is freedom that comes when you take control of your family’s diet and say, “Enough!” to the corporations trying to convince you to purchase their next conveniently prepared dinner option.
