what’s the point?


for me the point is fitting into the clothes in my closet. good morning everyone! it’s already after 10 and the day is whizzing by. the voices in my head were trying to keep me from an early workout but i got one in, third day in a row. it’s finally kicking in that there will be plenty of time to do all the mundane but if we don’t take care of and nourish ourselves, what’s it all for if the clothes don’t fit and nails are a wreck?


i found this on pinterest and laughed cause it covered pretty much coveres everything. but since liz and i have been making salads for lunch the past couple days, (and so loving every single bite)! things have changed. i’m looking on pinterest for good recipes and pics of beautiful food.


i can’t say i’ve seen HuGe results yet but just stretching and walking in the am and knowing the day is starting off to a positive trajectory is sure helping.


thought i’d pass this on too. about to chug a mug right now. if you have any pretty pics with recipes, send the links. i’m sure we could all use some creative ways to get off the comfort food treadmill. in the meantime, have a beautiful day!

    I think many of us find ourselves getting in the habit of eating unhealthy foods, and I have been on a mission to prepare more healthy/holistic foods for my family. I love the many things Pinterest has to offer, and one of them is recipes! Here’s the link to my Wholesome Foods board, which is full of salads, vegetables, fruits and grains recipes. http://pinterest.com/alaparisienne/wholesome-recipes/

    They are not all low fat, but they are healthy (We do need some fats, right?).
    I’ve already made the broccoli, bowtie, grape pasta salad- delicious as well as the Asian lettuce wraps (delicious and perfect for a summer lunch/dinner and the left overs are pretty good) and last night I made the zucchini carbonara for dinner–VERY delicious.

    Hope you find some recipes you like.

    Hi Claudia!!
    I love the sentiment from Pintrest! Sometimes I feel comfort food makes you uncomfortable…… Living in a small town in Texas where ice cream, sausage, barbeque and everything fried, needless to say eating out is a challenge we cook at home a lot…… I use nonfat yoghurt instead of sour cream and love salad Nicoise…without the potatoes……Will check out Mandy’s collection!!!!!!!! Also on the food channel Paula Dean’s son is doing a lot of her old recepies in a new healthier way. Called “Not my Mamma’s Meals” He is doing a great job! We tried the oven baked “Fried chicken” it was great……Maryanne xo

      so true that comfort food makes you the most uncomfortable, especially in jeans! i’m super into salad these days and did have a bite of chocolate ice cream and apple pie but not enough to make me have to unbutton that top snap!

    I love pinterest too! I don’t know how healthy some of these are, but you can look at my food list too http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/cart/view-upsell.html?ie=UTF8&HUCT=1&newItems=C3VVVSN1G4QWFL%2C1
    I’ve been thinking of exercising myself. I guess we don’t have to wait until New Year’s to start right? :D

    Such a great reminder — we need to take care of ourselves first. And yet, so often we do that last.
