Cut The Fluff-Week 2

184.6.  That’s what the scale said this morning.  That’s 2.6lbs. (Scale needed recalibration, my ACTUAL starting weight was 187.  What a punch to the gut, huh?)  In ONE week of not eating like I would never see food again, I lost 2.6 lbs.  Just…wow.  I only made it to the track or treadmill 2 times…

Organized

As I begin to take on more and more new clients in my graphic design business, (don’t you want a new blog design?) the importance of staying organized, and keeping a schedule is becoming very, very clear to me.  I am a GREAT organizer.  I can make a schedule that runs like a dream.  If…

First 5K

Im doing it.  Race for the Cure, on October 16th, with a women’s group from my church.  I’ve known about it for a while, but I didn’t officialy sign up until yesterday.  So I’m doing a 5k. In like, 2 weeks.  That I haven’t been training for.  What an excellent idea, right? It’s not completely…

Not Perfect

First off, I want to thank you guys for your support.  You have no IDEA how much that helped me, and how much it meant to me.  Last week was a little difficult for me.  Who knew that being a SAHM (you know, watching tv, eating bonbons……..you know I’m kidding right?!) could be so overwhelming!?!…

Being Ms. Jones -Week 41

Izzy had her worst spill so far yesterday evening.  We were playing with her, and she tripped, and hit her mouth on the ottoman.  Right at the extremely odd angle that is the ONLY angle that the ottoman could have caused her any injury. *sigh* It happened so fast that I first though she had…

Cut The Fluff-Week 1

So.  Today marks the first day of what I’m promising myself will be a major change in my life.  Maybe, hopefully, yours too! I wrote about the  Cut The Fluff challenge on Saturday, and today will be the beginning of that challenge. My name is Christina, and I want to lose 20-30lbs.  My current weight…

Cut The Fluff-The Challenge

As moms….well, not even just as moms, really, but as women, so often I think we get so caught up in the care of others (significant other, kids, family, etc) that we start to neglect ourselves.  The first thing that usually goes out of the window? Eating well. Followed closely by exercise. I’m ready to…

Strawberry Blueberry Crumble

(This recipe was originally posted on my food blog on August 10, 2010)
Best served warm, this berry crumble is fruity and delicious! So, on my grocery shopping adventure this morning, I ran across some beautiful strawberries, for only $1.88 for a whole pint! That was a deal that i simple couldn’t pass up! I knew that I wanted to make smoothies, but beyond that, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the rest of them. I ended up picking up some blueberries on the same trip, so I decided to combine the two, and try this yummy dessert. I have made this dish before, but always with peaches or apples. Before today, I never would have imagined that I would enjoy the taste of warm strawberries, but this simple, easy dish is going to become a staple in our home!
