(Nope, no April Fools stuff -- have I told you that I DESPISE pranks and practical jokes?) I call this song my "plateau buster" -- I busted through a huge plateau a couple weeks ago and all I could think... Continue reading

It's very easy to take your eating plan from that of losing weight to that of not losing weight. Continue reading

Since everyone and their trainer is coming up with a Shamrock Shake re-do, I offer up mine, which makes for a delish protein smoothie. Continue reading

This is one of those "Mom, stop singing so loud" songs. (Mothers of teenagers, you understand, right? Or am I just a big-mouthed rockstar car singer?) I like songs with kick-butt choruses to get me going on a run/walk. Continue reading

I love the fun energy of the song and the lyrics, which poke fun at "living in the real world." Continue reading

I did do the 10 days and it really wasn't difficult. I wasn't a big fan of the smoothies but the other meals and snacks were good. And I was amazed at how much I could pack into those lunch salads -- like olives and avocado -- and still lose weight.

This song was part of the Rock My Run mix called "The Comeback," which I listened to yesterday while pushing through a strength training session at the gym. This song came at just the right time as I was struggling... Continue reading

I'm not really into woo-woo elimination-type diets, but I'm hoping that I figure out what is making me itchy and perhaps the pound will go with it. Continue reading
