Goals for BLC 20

For this (past) weekend, we were supposed to focus our STRONG end (because while for many of us the weekend is a WEAK end--times when our healthy lifestyle tends to come apart--the Azure Destinations team makes it a point to have a plan in place... Read more
Mackinac Bridge Walk

Last spring, a good friend of mine said she needed a goal to work toward to get her exercising and had decided she was going to walk across the Mackinac Bridge, the bridge that connects the lower Peninsula of Michigan to the Upper. She wanted t... Read more
Pedometer update
Saturday, August 25, 2012      9 comments

Well, I tried drying my pedometer out in rice but it's still as bad as ever, so I I took the plunge and got a fit bit... not cheap, not by any means, but it has great reviews and is TINY. Most of the pedometers I've seen were significantly bi... Read more
Pedometer recommendations?
Friday, August 24, 2012      5 comments

My last Pedometer is dead. Which is the second time I have bought a Sportline Pedometer and had it die--admittedly, to be fair, the first one died because I forgot I had it on and through my pants in the washing machine. But the second one die... Read more

Thoughts on BLC 19
Monday, July 23, 2012      6 comments

The Biggest Loser Challenge (BLC) 19 ended last week and I have been thinking back over the round. On the surface, it wasn't a terribly successful round in that instead of LOSING weight like I had hoped, I continued to gain weight. I gained al... Read more

Last recipe (at least for now)
Monday, May 21, 2012      4 comments

My husband can't have carrots--he's so allergic to carrots he can't even eat something off a plate that touched something (like a fork) that touched carrots. This is why I don't have carrots as often as I would like and when I do they are quara... Read more
And Another Veggie Recipe!
Sunday, May 20, 2012      8 comments

Okay, up until a short while ago I thought I hated sweet potatoes (turns out I don't like them cooked with extra sweet added--like maple sugar or brown sugar--but I love them if they are in a savory recipe), I always hated Brussel Sprouts, and A... Read more
Another veggie recipe
Saturday, May 19, 2012      7 comments

I don't know about you, but I don't particularly like radishes (my dad likes to eat them plain and raw--ewwww). My husband is no more fond of them than I am. Unfortunately, radishes are on the relatively short list of vegetables my husband CAN... Read more

Two Recipes for the Fruit/Veggie Bingo Challenge Recipe 1: Mashed Turnips This one is a common staple for us because my husband is allergic to potatoes and cauliflower, the two most common mashed vegetables. It's actually a relatively... Read more
STRONG END: Nutrition focus
Friday, May 18, 2012      4 comments

This weekend's strong end is well matched with a BLC challenge of Freggie bingo, where you try to get as many points (bingo's) as possible by meeting the requirements in the squares. While some of the squares are things like "blog this" or "pos... Read more
STRONG END: Focus on Rest and Relaxation
Monday, May 14, 2012      4 comments

You would think that a strong end focus on rest and relaxation would be an easy one but I learned a few years ago that I don't know how to truly relax any more. Even though I actually do a lot of the things you are supposed to do for stress (... Read more
FITNESS FOCUS: a major NSV and Fitness baseline
Friday, May 04, 2012      5 comments

This is a Fitness focus STRONGEND for the Azure Team, so it was fitting that I mention a major NSV that happened this week (I had posted about it on some of my teams, and Kal suggested that I blog about it and I thought it fit well for the fitne... Read more
