I went to the gym last night- it was PACKED! Now you want me to complain about it. You want me to make that snide remark- “give it a month and all the “Resolutioners” will quit and I’ll have the gym to myself again… ” Nope. Not going to do it. You know why? Because … Continue reading

Choosing a HAPPY New Year!
I’m making the same resolution as I did last year- I choose happy. My resolution last year was to be happy. Not to find “happiness”. Not to make others happy but to be simply happy myself. I think happiness is a choice. I chose happy this year and honestly it was a really happy year. … Continue reading
Nifty at 50!
So December 23rd I wrote my 50th blog post! WordPress sent me this: I think that is kind of amazing! I never thought I would write a blog! I started writing only because my husband was so sick of me talking about my ideas about exercise, food, my journey, my progress…. I started writing here as a … Continue reading
I Have the Secret Cure for Lack of Motivation!
No drive. No get up and go. Lack of motivation. No mojo! That’s been me for the last three weeks! Me! I know! Weird eh? I have been forcing myself to go to the gym. When I was sick last week, I was all too happy to stay home. This was totally un chartered territory … Continue reading

Clean Eating Kids Part 2
I have taken many approaches trying to get my kids to eat clean. Sometimes I explain the value of the food we are eating, sometimes I dare them to try something new, sometimes I even LIE to them lol! The most effective approach seems to be getting them involved in the meal preparation. My kids … Continue reading
August long weekend is cottage time for us.

I Eat Things That Might Surprise You
I recently ran into a friend I hadn’t seen in over 6 months. She was really surprised by my change in appearance. “Wow! How did you lose all that weight?” was the question. I thought about it and then I had to tell her the truth…. even though it isn’t the answer most people want … Continue reading
A Kale of Two Salads
Someone asked me if it has to be all or nothing with Clean Eating. At the beginning, it was ALL! I totally committed to this new way of eating. To be honest, my motives weren’t entirely pure. Sure I was interested in cutting out fake food, fake sweeteners, fake fats, but my main goal was … Continue reading
