Walk Out Wednesdays with Omron’s Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker

“These shoes were made for walkin’…” That’s how the song goes, right? I’ve been using Omron’s Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker the past month or so, and not just because of their Walk Out Wednesdays campaign. But that helps. A little extra push is a big push somedays. It allows you to transfer your fitness data […]

Omron Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker: Walk Out on Wednesdays!

Or walk out everyday! I find when I use a step tracker/activity tracker I find reasons to walk more. I am a very competitive girl, especially with myself…. so this idea of tracking my steps is quite the motivator. I find if I feel I am low on my step progressĀ I will choose to park […]

The Whole30. Again. Why???

I did the the Whole30 (a.k.a. #Whole30) for the first time last August/September (2014). I announced it on the blog here. And talked about it here and here. I made 5 daily videos (Day 1, Day 2, Day 7, Day 8, and Day 14). So the term “daily” is used loosely. Veeeery loosely. I did […]

The Whole30 – I’m Doing It

So… after much thought. Which included downloading the Whole30. Twice. And then the purchase and reading of the Whole30 book – It Starts With Food. Along with the purchase of the cookbook Well Fed. I decided to take the plunge. I kept waiting for a good time to start. You know… a less busy time. […]

Sugar Detox, WHAT?

So… Since February I have been cooking a lot. And when I say a lot… I mean A LOT. I launched into The Plan100%. It is a book with a 20 day *thing* that helps a person discover friendly foods and not friendly foods… a.k.a. inflammatory foods. I highly recommend it. I lost 14 pounds […]

On The Spot with Lucy: She Recommends SmartyPants Vitamins!

I was recently asked if my family and I would give SmartyPants Vitamins a whirl. I’m always a little nervous when I get asked to take part of a product review… because you just never know if it will be a hit or not. Plus, we’ve not had great luck with vitamins. Read: my kids […]

Yes on 522 because I Want to Know.

If you live in Washington state, you have heard of I-522. I’m certain of it. I typically don’t get at all political over here on le blog, but “some exception apply”. An exception is a case when there a chance for me to know what I will be feeding my family vs. NOT knowing what […]

I Ran the Seattle Rock and Roll Half-Marathon and I Lived to Tell!

I may lose 2 toe nails, but I did it. This was the view at the start line… Here’s Seattle’s Big Wheel… And here’s that medal… I’m not going to share the picture of my toe here. But if curiosity gets the best of you, then you can check it out on Instagram… and always […]

Do a Half-Marathon? It’s not too late to turn back, but…

Do another half-marathon? Why not?! Actually, I could give you about 1,000 reasons why not. But the monies have been spent, and truth-be-told… I am a glutton for punishment. I am also a glutton for other things, particularly food things… so putting a good, healthy goal on the calendar is probably a good idea. But […]

If pulling into a parking stall counts, then… I totally went to the gym yesterday.

Somedays seem like Mondays even though they are Thursdays. At one point yesterday I saw the direction the day/my attitude was headed and I took Thursday by the collar and was all, “YOU ARE NOT THE BOSS OF ME, THURSDAY. YOU ARE THE BULL AND I BELIEVE I HAVE YOU BY THE HORNS, THERE BUDDY.” […]
