Almost 2 months of constant celebrations.
What you worked on for the entire year can be blown in just two months. Scratch that, less than two months. It can be in just days.
It makes sense to start planning now.
But it’s only October!
YES! Now is the time to put things in motion so that you can make it through the holiday season unscathed.
Thanksgiving marks the beginning of a “high risk” time for management of your weight. The whole season doesn’t represent just one day of indulgences. Instead, you have a period of time that extends through the New Year where there […]
Yeah, I am on a pumpkin kick, for sure.
Just shoot me already.
I am finding more and more things to make with pumpkin, so you will just have to put up with it. Last year there was a pumpkin shortage so I definitely did not get my fill. I am making up for lost time.
This dish is SPICY, so it’s perfect for cool fall evenings … warming the inside as well as warming the outside.
I used zoodles, but you can actually use almost anything. Quite frankly, I made this, took one serving to take the picture, then I ate […]
Who doesn’t love Gyro’s???
The sauce that makes the whole thing is something called Tzatziki. When this stuff is made right, it’s to die for, quite seriously.
Since most of us don’t do wheat anymore, pita is off the menu, so the next best thing is a Gyro Salad. My local Greek Restaurant makes a killer Gyro Salad – I have yet been able to replicate the meat and it seems that all Greek chefs don’t like to share.
Scares me sometimes.
HA! I digress.
A grilled meat salad topped with this sauce is something to be treasured. It’s simply divine.
The trick with […]
When I was first doing Atkins for real, not just playing around with it, I came across the beloved “Mock Danish”. At first, it meant nothing to me as I am not a sweet lover. So “Danish” turned me off.
On the support group forum I belonged to however, they kept singing it’s praises and I finally succumbed. And I am glad I did! It was heavenly, and oh so filling! It kept me satiated for hours. Better than that, it was excellent cold, so I could make a few and keep in the fridge for those times […]
One of these is perfect for making this recipe!
That little gadget can go a long way to making Zoodles which are awesome for P2. Yes, I know that zucchini is not an allowed veggie, but it is for any Bod Squad member. ::giggle::
I posted a recipe for Marinara Sauce a few months ago, and said I would be releasing the Zoodle Chicken recipe soon, so here it is.
This is a great warm comfort food for chilly nights.

So what are you waiting for?
I’ve always had to worry and struggle with my weight since childhood (I weighed in at 10.5 lbs at birth for crying out loud!), except for the years that I was running marathons. Even then, I was an unhealthy thin. I’d catch every cold that came along, was on inhalers for asthma, daily allergy meds, antibiotics for sinus infections at least twice a year, suffered from bouts of anxiety, etc. Years passed, and the weight just jumped up and hung on for dear life! I’d had enough. I started seeking out alternative therapies as […]
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. ~ Melody Beattie
This quote is another way of saying that when life hands you lemons, be grateful you have them. Then go make lemonade!
It is interesting how many coaches, motivational speakers, historical personalities and the like include GRATITUDE in their […]
Resentment or grudges do no harm to the person against whom you hold these feelings but every day and every night of your life, they are eating at you. ~ Norman Vincent Peale
Getting a hold of our emotions is a huge part of the self-growth process. A good many of us might believe, or have believed, that we are not in control of our emotions at all.
That is far from the truth.
There is a way to transform your thoughts (emotions) so that they can better serve you and your purpose:
Step 1: Be Aware of It
First, you must recognize the emotion. […]
