Chasing my fit: “Mommy & Daddy” runners

Had some family running fun this weekend!  We went out to the Semper Fit Grand Prix’s Hampstead Kiwanis Turkey Trot 8K.  Aiden and Lilli were dressed to run in case they wanted to hop out of the strollers.  Well guess what?  They did alright!  Aiden, my 5 year old boy, ran about 2.5 miles of […]

Fit Foodie: Comfort Foods

Crock pot Chicken & Dumplings This was a big comfort food recipe for me as well as the tomato soup.  As the cold is coming in I feel the need to crawl under a blanket with a big bowl of warmth.  These two recipes were perfection for that! http://www.yummyhealthyeasy.com/2013/02/easy-slow-cooker-chicken-and-dumplings.html Chicken Parmesan Wraps http://www.canyoustayfordinner.com/2011/02/17/chicken-parmesan-wraps/ Frozen healthy […]

Chasing my Fit: NSV’s are the best!

Major NSV (non-scale victory) this week…back into my high school jeans.  Ok ok ok…it’s the “fat” pair but hey!  It’s a start!  The last time I wore them was in high school and then again briefly in 2002 (the major clubbing year).  They were a pretty big deal to me though.  I never believed that […]

Chasing My Fit: Balancing Act

Chasing fitness postpartum is not by any means easy. Being a nursing mom, I have to watch that my calories do not fall below a certain point BUT being a woman trying to get back on the road to finding my fit I need to watch that I don’t go above a certain point either. […]

Fit Foodie: A Full Week!

Back to cooking full time!  I have enjoyed my rest and all of the yummy freezer meals as well as the lovely meals brought to us BUT I missed this.  I missed exploring the recipes, setting up a full meal plan and trying out something new!  It’s good to be back! Sweet Potato Irish Nachos […]

Chasing my fit: Crazy? Maybe.

I have the bug.  I have it bad.  Today I am starting marathon training.  That’s right…marathon training!  Not half marathon.  I need to know where my breaking point is.  I need to challenge myself.  What better way than to do something I, myself, think is crazy? PS I broke the 180 threshold!  I had been […]
