Come Off Cruise Control: Question Your Habits

April 30, 2012

This is a totally random topic, mostly because I didn’t do anything except work today. I’ll call it: Don’t Always Rely on Cruise Control We spend so much of our lives on cruise control. This is mostly good. After all, you’d not want to have to put lots of thought and effort into things like brushing [...]

Sweat It Out Sunday

April 29, 2012

My friend Stefanie, over at The New Healthy, hosts a link-up on Saturdays for people to share what they’ve done to work out. I’ve only linked up once before, but I thought it would be a good day to chime in again (even though I’m a day late). Since I’ve been super active—and motivated—and have [...]

Lemon Essence Vanilla Cupcakes – with Almond/Coconut Flour (grain free, super low sugar)

April 28, 2012

Ever since Valentine’s Day, when I first made the Almond/Coconut Flour cupcakes, I’ve been wanting to make some variations. They’re just too good not to (and easy too). Lemon seemed like a logical choice. I made some other lemon coconut flour cupcakes (muffins?) a couple months ago, and they were great too, but more lemony. [...]

Make a Decision. Then, Make It Right.

April 26, 2012

Decisions, decisions….hmmm, what’s next? I’m feeling good about mine right now—where I’m going with work and life and all. However, it is pretty easy to second guess things sometimes, and that’s how I occasionally get stuck in the idea phase of life (rather than the action phase). I remember talking to my Mom about making [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding ….with a secret high protein ingredient!

April 25, 2012

Apparently, I’m still feeling the motivation from my training session yesterday—I ate extra well today, did two workouts, and went in the infrared sauna. I weighed-in too, and Joe was nice enough to take my “before” pics. He laughed at me for all of this, by the way, but he was supportive. I like how [...]

Coconut Flour Donut Holes and My First Personal Training Session

April 24, 2012

First thing’s first… I made donut holes that had no sugar added, and no grains. And they actually turned out amazingly well. I won’t mention the donut recipe Matthew and I tried a few weeks ago that was disgusting. We made a huge mess, and were completely disappointed. Hey, I mean, it happens sometimes. Shortly [...]

It’s Quite Simple, but Not Necessarily Easy—Take Charge and Change Your Life

April 23, 2012

Remember the old days when TVs didn’t have remotes? I remember when we first got a cable box that sat on top of the TV–it had a dial, and you had to get up to change it. I’m not sure when remotes appeared, but I sure don’t know anyone without one now! How torturous would [...]

Aloe Vera for Acid Reflux (and an awesome aloe cocktail!)

April 22, 2012

A few years ago, when I moved to Pittsford, I was enthralled with the Pittsford Wegmans—it was a bit overwhelming at first, but I got into a groove there quickly, and made almost daily trips (after all, I lived 0.24 miles away!). Shortly after I began shopping there, I noticed the produce department had all [...]

Sharing Yoga, Coffee, and Food with Friends…

April 21, 2012

I really needed this today: And This: And This: Just kidding, I didn’t have that last one. But I could go for one right now. I went to the gym early this morning, after an hour or so of work. Then I met a friend at a hot yoga class and we went to Starbucks [...]

Dark Chocolate Avocado Ice Cream

April 19, 2012

I’ve been trying to think of an alternative to sugary ice creams or even fruit-based ones like banana soft serve (you may have noticed all the coconut cream ice cream recipes I’ve made in the past few months), and I decided to try avocados in the same method as the banana ice cream is made. [...]
