Spirlizing fun
Saturday, April 16, 2016      3 comments

The learning continues. Today used my spirilizer on an apple, a kohlrabi, and jicama. I made a light salad with some edamame. Because I used the apple I didn't need any dressing. I sprinkled a little 5 spice powder and that was enough. I ... Read more

Loved my yoga yesterday but it's not loving me today. Sore muscles today big time. I recall this from when I started the last time. I just had a long time since I had to take a break. But, this week I don't have the extreme fatigue I exper... Read more
It's a new day

Last week was rough but it's a new week. I made it to yoga today and was very happy I did. However, we did a lot of balance work so my feet are a bit sore. Thank goodness for deep blue. I'll be working that into my feet and other sore are... Read more
Missed a day

I didn't even realize I never went back to do my blog yesterday. But still struggling this week with the fibro so no surprise there. I've got to get my brain in gear and focus on eating right. I do know that making poor food choices doesn'... Read more
It's veggie stock day
Friday, April 08, 2016      1 comments

Since I have accumulated 4 freezer gallon bags full of veggie trimmings and I'm home today, today is veggie stock day. As I filled the bags over the last couple of weeks, I pushed the frozen trimmings down to make room so the bags were very... Read more
Flavor for the Win
Thursday, April 07, 2016      1 comments

I had two wins today with eating correctly and having lots of flavor. We went out to lunch with my in-laws today and thought I'd be really challenged to find a good option because it's a local Italian place. However, they had a really nice... Read more

I just got my Pampered Chef spirilizer. I'm actually very impressed with the quality. It will make ribbons, thin spaghetti and fettuccini size noodles. My first trial will be sweet potato spaghetti noodle and I'm just figuring out what I wa... Read more

Back to yoga
Monday, April 04, 2016      2 comments

I finally got my act together and made it to yoga today for the first time in months. Unlike the last time I tried to get back to yoga, today went really well. I was truly ready. That's not to say it was easy but there was some muscle memo... Read more
To forage or not to forage - that is the question
Sunday, April 03, 2016      0 comments

Last year my son in law got into foraging and mushroom foraging specifically. The few times I was treated to some of his foraged wild mushrooms I fell in love. Now that I'm following the Eat to Live plan, I continue to look for ways to make... Read more

Oriental food
Friday, April 01, 2016      1 comments

It's easy to think that all oriental food is going to be a bad choice if you're trying to lose weight. But that doesn't have to be true. Tonight I was determined to be as close to the Eat to Live plan as possible, even with eating out at an... Read more
Rest Days
Thursday, March 31, 2016      3 comments

Do you need a rest day or does having a rest day interrupt your routine and cause you to be off track? I usually end up with a rest day even if I don't specifically plan for one. For me having one rest day and then right back to my walkin... Read more

Wednesday, March 30, 2016      2 comments

Finally having a "normal" week. Yesterday I got to get into the therapy pool and whirlpool which are both very good for my fibro along with getting me moving. Today I "walked" here at home with a Wii walking program I have. 4400 steps today and ... Read more
