[Eating Healthy Is Expensive] . The prices of groceries are going up up and up. . A loaf of bread on sale is $2. Oranges are $2 a pound. A watermelon is $5-6 and lasts for 2 days (if that) in my house. . A lot of people use money as an excuse to not buy "healthy" but eat processed foods instead. I don't think that's a good reason. . Processed foods are also expensive. A 12 pack of Coke is $5. On sale. --- Water is free. Well basically. It's MUCH cheaper than Soda. . Chicken fingers are…

Almost as Quick as Fast Food. But cheaper and healthier. . In my house my kids ask to go out to eat a lot. Well it seems like a lot. We usually go out once or twice a month. Whether that's a lot to you or not it's not nearly enough for my kids! . One quick and fairly healthy meal we make a lot in summer that they get excited about is bacon wraps. They're easy to make especially when you have a teenager who loves to fry bacon. I'm not even joking! . We typically use whole wheat wraps…

[Workout Tip!!] This summer I'm going to be posting Playground and Outdoor Workouts for Workout Wednesdays. . Working your back can be difficult at the park. One of my favourite ways to work my back and arms outside is by doing chin ups (or isometric bent arm holds) on the monkey bars. You can also do rows on a lower bar. . Keep in mind that these are not beginner exercises and are not safe for postpartum moms who haven't safely rehabbed their bodies. And here is my tip... . Use a low bar…

[Bikini Rebellion Day 4] My body's story - As a kid I was never skinny. I wasn't obese but I shall we say kept my baby fat. :) Here I am at 5 years old in one of the only bikini pictures you'll ever find of me on the internet. One thing that makes me sad is when I hear women say "I look back at old pictures when I thought I was fat. I wasn't!! I wish I had known that then." :'( To me that sounds like the woman is hating on themselves. . No my dear friend that is not how it works. Work on…

Ecstasy Models

This is truth people. Lived with him for 17 years and I haven't spent a minute missing him since the moment I left. Being without him, thanks to his habit of being emotionally and physically unavailable, made it pretty easy to walk away and not look back. I only wish I left 17 years earlier.

Super simple meal that my teenager loves. He says "thank you" before he even eats it! . Cook up ground beef (I like to use my precooked and taco-seasoned ground beef to save time). Mix in salsa and heat thoroughly. I use about 2 cups of salsa. Take a quesadilla wrap and spread a spoonful of Italian dressing down the middle. Add a sprinkle of grated cheese and enough meat mixture to fill but not too much. Wrap it up and place in presprayed pan. Wrap them all up top with leftover meat mixture…

[Bikini Rebellion Day 1] Redefining what strength is for me at this stage of my life: . Strength used to be about attaining strength goals and pushing my body as hard as I could. . In the last six months I've been reminded to slow down and I've been forced to redefine what strength looks like for me. . Strength has been facing my difficult emotions taking the time to learn how to do this and then to do it instead of stuffing them down or numbing myself. . Strength is about taking…
