Welcome to the weekend weigh-in! This week seriously just flew right by, and I’m not sure where it all went. I suppose as we get closer to Christmas, life just gets that way. Still, there were some definite ups and downs throughout the week. So let’s just jump into what went down this week. The Good Well, I went to the doctor this past Monday. That sounds like it could be bad, and the reason for going isn’t great, but […]
Welcome back to the weekend weigh-in! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and took the time to enjoy some good food and good family fun. As I mentioned in my Holiday Survival Guide, the mister and I do not weigh on holiday weekends. Why torture ourselves like that? Of course, that doesn’t mean we just throw the scale out the window. The Good We had a wonderful holiday. We celebrated with just ourselves and my mom, and it […]
Last week, we tried out a new recipe! If you’ve read my blog before, you’re probably getting the picture that the mister and I are creatures of habit. When we find something we like, we tend to stick with it. Recipes are no different. Well, I have to say that we’ve found a winner in this delicious Crockpot Beef Roast from Life as the Coats. Difficulty Level: Easy Mode This recipe was incredibly simple. It takes five ingredients, and only […]
This week was a bit of a rollercoaster for me! We had a major event coming up at work that I was preparing for, and we were derailed from our plan to exercise with Daily Burn. But for the most part, I only have good things to report. Especially when it comes to my weigh-in. The Good Some weeks I am at a loss for where to begin with the good in my week, but I have no such trouble […]
Winter is coming. No, this isn’t a post about Game of Thrones. But winter is definitely on the way, and with it comes the holidays. I don’t know about you, but the holidays are Enemy #1 for my waistline. Last year was the first time I didn’t gain any weight over Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I’m going to share with you just how I managed that with a little survival guide. UGH Not Another One I know, I know. Like you […]
This is the first weekend in a while that I haven’t ended up with a sugar hangover, and I think I’ve pinpointed the problem! As I said in my Friday Favorites from this week, the mister and I love to go to the movies. But that means snacks and treats. That’s not bad in itself, but when you pair a little candy and popcorn with 32 oz of sugar-filled Coke Icee, then you might have a problem brewing. When we […]
Whether it’s at losing weight, playing a game, getting a promotion or finding love, there is one thing that we all fear: Failure. That’s the eight letter word that brings the best to their knees. But here’s the thing…it happens to all of us! I’m a failure That’s right, I’m a failure. We all are. Not all the time, of course! But we all fail at things. As I mentioned yesterday on Mimi’s Monday Menu, this past weekend I didn’t […]
Last week we managed to stick to the menu every single day. It was a small miracle! And surprisingly, the Ultimate Keto Buns I made on Sunday held up through the entire week.
