For those of you who don’t know, I’m hosting a summer running challenge. The goal is to run 100 miles during the summer. I made up a schedule that will allow you to do this without any crazy runs and only running three times/week. There are quite a few bloggers that are joining me on this, and I’d love to hear about anyone else who decides to take the challenge! Leave me a comment if you’re doing it and I’m going to link up all the bloggers at some point during the challenge.  How are you all feeling...

Well, if you’re anything like me, you missed that boat and are now really wishing you’d started working out a few months ago, right? Well, there is no time like the present! I am joining up with Jen at The Cutest...

I’m not going to lie. I’m writing this post because I really need motivation to workout. I am down to TEN pounds left and have been trying so hard to lose them for about three months. I recently took some “time off” of working out and I was amazed at how fast I lost my stamina and flexibility. And how quickly I gained back some of the weight I had worked so hard to lose. I thought a good post about why I KNOW I should be working out might help me and it might help some of my readers who are looking for that...

  I came down with a nasty cough this weekend. And I was excited. Why? Because last time I was visiting my parents, I found an old ward cookbook. The cookbook was gold. It had amazing recipes in it. And, in the back, there was a section of miscellaneous “recipes” that weren’t actually food recipes. They were things like homemade cleaner,...

My first post about losing weight was a hit. Read it here. So, I decided to write down five more obvious things I do to lose weight. Because like I said in the first article, losing weight is not magic, it’s science. Drink Water Drinking water increases your metabolism so you are able to burn calories faster. Aim for at least eight glasses a day. I know, the first few days you are running to the bathroom every ten minutes, and that’s hard. Don’t worry, it gets easier.  Go Running Running is probably one of the...

Are you ready to have your mind blown? I learned how to make a smoothie that is super smooth, but dairy free. No yogurt or milk of any kind. The secret? Add an avocado. If someone else already knew this, you are now dead to me for the next.. 30 seconds.Okay, now that that’s done with, I will share with you the recipe for this fantastic smoothie. Not only is it smooth and yummy, it’s good for you, too! You need spinach, an avocado, a lime, and a mango/pineapple/strawberry frozen fruit mix. So first, I put in about 2 handfuls...

Losing weight isn’t a mystery, at least it doesn’t have to be. It’s not magic. It’s science. Sure, there are some things the speed that science along, but you most likely don’t need those things. There are some simple life changes that you can make to start losing weight. Eat Better This one seems obvious, but it’s very true. You might be surprised at just how much you are putting into your mouth. Try this experiment: write down everything you put in your mouth for a week. If you bite it, write it. This act alone...

For Christmas, my husband bought me a juicer. I had been dropping serious hints that I wanted one. I had been losing weight slowly and I wanted to amp it up. I also wanted to eat healthier. I really don’t like raw veggies that much, and I can only drink so many green smoothies, so I figured a juicer would be a good direction to go in. I have used my juicer every day except one since I got it. I love it. I really think that pretty much anyone can benefit from juicing. Here are some things I learned: You don’t have to have the...
