Free Week is Over &#...

Free Week is over and, as ever, it was a wonderful mental and physical break and there were many lessons learned – or at least reaffirmed. I always get all freaky leading up to Free Week and worry that I won’t be able to control myself and I’ll gain 15 pounds in 7 days, but that has...

A Look Back To Move ...

There are only a handful of days until we reach 2014 and for many people it is a time for introspection – for a look back over the year to see what has been accomplished and what still needs to be done. When you look back over 2013 is it with wonder and amazement over how far you’ve come...

Roasted Red Pepper a...

Omigosh,  I have to share this stuffed chicken breast recipe with you!  Gina Homolka’s Skinnytaste.com site rarely disappoints, and this recipe is no exception.  I would totally make it for company.  The recipe as written calls for slices of mozzarella cheese, and this is fine.  We...

Thanksgiving Paradig...

Holiday paradigms are very interesting and we just came up against some Thanksgiving Paradigms. A couple of months ago, Deb and I were sitting around and the conversation turned to Thanksgiving.  I asked her, “Is there anything special you want for dinner this year?”  We started...

The Best Turkey You ...

Looking for a recipe that produces the best turkey you will ever eat for this year’s Thanksgiving table? Look no further my poultry-predicamented pal! Several years ago I found the secret to a moist, juicy turkey without adding a bunch of extra fat and calories – BRINE your...

Homage to Oatmeal

I devote this post as a homage to oatmeal. I LOVE oatmeal!  I love oatmeal A LOT!  It is versatile and healthy and clean (old-fashioned or steel cut – not a fan of instant oatmeal) and paired with a couple of scrambled eggs makes for just about the most perfect breakfast ever. We eat...

Race Recap: Beat th...

I’m sorry I have been negligent in posting our training reports, but I did want to post a race recap of the 2013 Beat the Heat Triathlon for those who have an interest in such things.  The event itself was really amazing – especially for a 1st annual event!  The race organizers...

I Hired A Coach

I am so excited to announce that I am entering a new chapter in my health and fitness journey – I hired a coach!! Now, Deb and I talk about needing a coach to get you past all your own mental junk – you need a coach in lots of different areas of your life – a business coach,...

A Challenge That Wil...

Do you want a challenge that will change your life?  And when I say “change your life,” I don’t just mean a little change, but rather a huge, quantum leap-type, transformational change?  If you are ready, then you have come to the right place! Lately, I have been noticing that I have...

Two Steps Forward, O...

Angie learns that two steps forward, one step back is really the only way to get where you want to go! Those of you who know me, know that one of my major passions in life is my study and training in the martial arts – specifically, Chinese Kempo Karate. I officially started training on...

In A Lunch Rut

I fully admit it – I’m in a lunch rut!  I mean seriously, how many salads can a girl eat before the sight of lettuce causes a bit of a gag reflex? And poor Deb, she’s a great sport, but she’s not the world’s biggest salad fan at any rate. Here’s the thing… Lunches are easy when...

Recipe: Slow Cooker...

Salmon is one of my go-to menu choices, but I have never before prepared it in a slow cooker. I found this particular recipe and thought it looked great, but I couldn’t imagine how anything could cook thoroughly in a crockpot on low in only 2 hours, but figured I would give it a try. The...

Triathlon Training U...

I know, I’m sorry – here is our triathlon training update for week 7.  I don’t know how time gets away from me!! Deb’s Update:  I have been traveling quite a bit over the past few weeks so my pool time has suffered.  However, I do work out on the road on the...
