  • Exercising With Kids: Walking

    A question I had when I first started losing weight is "How do you exercise with kids?”.  Of course, I was originally seeking how to fit exercise in with all the other duties a mom has.  However, I’ve tried taking on a new approach- how do I exercise with my children? Walking If there is any…

  • When Do You Find Time To Workout?

    Some friends have asked me "When do you find the time to work out?".  My answer is: it varies day to day.  It gets a little difficult to have an effective workout  when your young kids want to join in.  My kids have almost been kicked by a bicycle crunch or knocked down by jumping jacks as they…

  • Black Bean Brownies

    I love finding new recipes to try - if they sound good.  When I came across a recipe for Black Bean Brownies at Chocolate Covered Katie.com, I wasn't sure what to think.  I'm used to black beans in tacos or other Mexican food.  To put them in anything else sounded odd, especially in a dessert…

    For one of my birthday gifts, the family and I went out to eat.  When perusing the menu, AJ saw a picture of chocolate chip pancakes and was quick to let me know that's what she wanted.  PJ felt the same way.  While I took time enjoying my salad, my kids downed their small chocolate…

However, breakfast banana splits are a different story.  Just…

  • Eating Well Waffles

    Today I faced that usual problem many moms face - what are we cooking for dinner?  It was too late to throw something in the Crock Pot.  I didn't have any tomato soup.   I was going to settle with making some pancakes from a mix I had in the pantry, then I thought I…

  • I Can’t!

    Success comes in cans, not in cannots Joel Weldon Growing up, my soccer coach (AKA Mom) had rules she would have us recite at every practice/game.  The last rule was always Positive Mental Attitude.  "If you think you can't, you won't.  If you think you can, you will.  And we will!"  I said this phrase…

  • Green Smoothies – With the Kids

    If you are like me, when you first heard of a green smoothie, you probably thought "What in the world is that?"  I thought they were smoothies flavored after something green like pistachios or limes.  Nope!  Green smoothies are a great and delicious way to get some veggies and fruit into your diet.  It's a…
