Bringing Sweaty Back, Muscles and Mascara

Vacation Essentials re-visited

Jumping June bugs, it's almost the 4th of July!  Many of you much cooler kids have already made your way out-of-town.  You've stretched your legs on a sandy beach,  taken photos in an Italian landscape, watched a Hawaiian sunset of six, hiked a mountain in Colorado or traveled abroad for a frosty shot of vodka… Continue reading Vacation Essentials re-visited

Bringing Sweaty Back, I don't cook, Metabolism Monday

Lite Chicken Salad

I'm sooo over it. Tell me you are too! I'm so worn on winter foods.  I'm tired of preparing the same o'le stuff.  It doesn't feel very Spring like in Texas and my taste buds are hankering for some fresh Spring-ish foods. Activation imagination. I had to pretend yesterday that it was 80 degrees outside… Continue reading Lite Chicken Salad

Appetizer

One of the country's most threatening issues is the growing APPETIZER epidemic! Appetizers are totally out of control and proportion.  Holy smokes,  I'm not even kidding right now and please don't try to act like you don't know what I'm talking about. If you have been to a restaurant in the past four weeks you… Continue reading Appetizer

Mindful Grubbing 

Today I'm held captive to staccato laughter and must begin with small side bar.  I was derailed from naming this blog post Mindful Munching because something in my goofy spirit and my girly snickering just couldn't allow it. I literally couldn't even write the first few sentences without COL, cackling out loud.  (take that teenagers)  I kept typing… Continue reading Mindful Grubbing

Part 2: A will & A way

Where there is the slightest will, there is always a way!  How many times have you heard this eye rolling trite remark? Sure it's a cheesy stale familiar cliché but I believe it deserves a healthy come back!  I have used this as a go to theme during the rapid changing phase of my 30's! Hopefully… Continue reading Part 2: A will & A way

A WILL & A WAY

As a 43-year-old wife, mother, FITness blogger and personal trainer, it's most interesting to look back on my 20-year old and 30-year-old self.  What's now so "in my face" obvious was then so utterly conventional and lack luster.  What I know now is that God was setting me up! Fresh out of college, I landed… Continue reading A WILL & A WAY

Eat Smart

Chip lovers of the world, prepare to be amazed and hopelessly devoted!  I lucked out and landed a super-duper find on the crunch front.  The time has finally arrived and...drum roll please...we have ourselves a delicious HEALTHY chip. Eat Smart snacks get a two thumbs up and Abercrombie and FITness seal of approval. Just so… Continue reading Eat Smart

Miscellaneous Monday 

Mr. Chicken Fry, aka the hubby, is a straight up meat and potatoes man.  He's NOT what I would consider a stodgy eater but let's just say that he doesn't venture very far outside of the sandbox. He's no food aficionado but his southern pallet does hanker for the classic dishes like chicken fried steak,… Continue reading Miscellaneous Monday

Breakfast

Does everyone already know why we call the first meal of the day BREAKFAST???   I'll give you a hint...the answer is hidden in the name.  BREAKFAST =  break the fast   I know, I know...  after all these years right? Evidentially our predecessors understood the value in ending the over night dry spell. RISE &… Continue reading Breakfast

A stellar adventurous African safari?   Perhaps a low-key private Bahamian bungalow beach house?  A European tour?  Maybe the Hawaiian surf is more your style. Listen up, I know you're in… Continue reading Vacation FAT or FIT ?
