Recently, you may have noticed a pattern in my articles regarding my desire to eat healthier. It has not just stemmed as a New Years Resolution, but as my inclination to keep the recently shredded pounds/baby weight off. Sometimes, when I find companies that offer great foods that are also good for me, it really makes my health-eating easier. Two brands I have been using lately include Jennie-O Turkey Store and Wholly Guacamole.Read More
It’s hard to believe tomorrow is the start of a new year. Since most of the holiday festivities have past, I am been thinking about ways to eat healthier and become more fit. With my three kids being so close in age, this is the first time in about four years I can actually set some goals and work to get fit without being pregnant or nursing. I am excited to get started and have been trying to find ways to keep myself on track. With a busy schedule, it is hard to stay focused. A couple weeks ago, I signed up for Let’sFightFat.com in hopes of finding some online support to assist me in reaching my health goals.
LetFightFat.com has a lot of great features that will allow me to stay focused, motivated and learn how to get fit. After I signed up (for FREE), I was prompted to customize my 120 day program. This included a start date, exercise preferences, meal plans, current weight, and weight goal. Then, based on current weight, target weight, and body type, I was given a number of calories allowed during the program. Mine is 1180. I can handle that. I have really been trying to watch my calories and now with the program, I can easily track each calorie daily. There are also healthy recipes to search through with nutritional facts. If I decide to make a recipe, I can easily add it to my calorie intake with just a click. I love the convenience.
I really enjoy the easy, viewable schedule. Each day I get a new tip or exercise routine to help me get fit and stay healthy. I can mark it complete and add it to my log after I do the routine and keep track of my progress. There is also a journal area to write down how I am feeling along the way. I like to jot down my own motivational thoughts that I can look back on if I get off track. I believe self-motivation is the key to success, even if I need addition motivation.
I am looking forward to continuing the use of LetsFightFat.com through the new year and if you are looking for a weight management resource, I encourage you to try it out as well. It’s FREE! Sign up here.

It’s no secret, I am a lover of coffee. Not a day goes by that I don’t drink at least two cups. One of my favorite coffee drinks is iced coffee. However, I don’t drink it as much as I would like because at a coffee shop it is too expensive to purchase daily and I don’t have time to make my own at my house. To enjoy iced coffee at home, I found that drinking International Delight Iced Coffee was my answer. But I had a dilemma. I have just about lost all my baby weight (yay!) and I am really starting to watch my sugar and calorie intake. I was dreading the thought of fewer iced coffees in my life. How would I get through my hectic day without that one indulgent drink that puts a smile on my face? Fortunately, International Delight heard my plea and is introducing their New Light Iced Coffee.Read More
If you follow me on Twitter, you probably know from my profile that ‘I am probably craving a salad right now.’ I enjoy them so much I could literally eat a salad for every meal. However, just because I am craving one doesn’t mean I get a chance to indulge in one daily. During meal time, I tend to only focus on my kids (3, 2 & almost 1). By the time I get their lunch prepared, food on the table and start to feed my 11 month old, I realize I forgot about myself. Most days I end up just grabbing some (unhealthy) snack foods and more days than not, I really don’t eat lunch.
My goal lately has been to stop skipping meals and start eating healthier. I would love to have a salad everyday, but I have to find something that is quick and easy to make. When I was making a late night run to Walmart last week, I may have found my match made in heaven.Read More
