Sheet pan meals are one of our team’s go-to weeknight dinners. They are called sheet pan meals because the whole meal is made on the same pan at the same time – talk about easy! Sheet pan meals can be made up of only vegetables or a combination of vegetables and meat. This is not a traditional recipe, but instead, we share our 6-step guide for how to make any combination of sheet pan meals. Dinner is served! 6 Steps… Continue reading »

Last summer, I challenged myself and my husband to add more fruits and vegetables to ALL our meals, not just dinner. This summer I challenged myself and my husband to try to not waste any of the vegetables or fruit we bought. This came about after finding a particularly slimy cucumber in the back of our fridge. Just like previous challenges we have done, this challenge caused us to do more meal planning, shop more carefully, and cook more at… Continue reading »

I keep hearing about pickleball and have wondered why it is getting so popular. I recently got the opportunity to try it out and I can see why people like it so much! If you have played any sort of paddle or racquet sport (tennis, badminton, ping pong) the basics are pretty easy to pick up. If you have never played a racquet sport it’s ok. There aren’t too many complicated rules and you can start playing pretty quickly.  The… Continue reading »

So it’s been two years since I got my gym membership.  I shared my strength training success after joining the gym, and continue to share my journey with you.  of my successes and challenges this year have outside of the gym walls and away from the weights and machines. The workouts keep me honest and help me to get other places I want to be. I started off with a 10 Mile race in April 2018.. over hills… down hills.. over… Continue reading »

This summer I had to replace my beloved Samsung Gear tracker. It had enough of my running and flat out refused to connect to my phone anymore. I really wanted the Garmin Fenix 5 but could not spend that much money on a tracker. So I decided on the FitBit Versa because it can track multiple activities, heart rate, and sleep patterns. This is the only Fitbit I have owned. I am pretty happy with it so far and I’ve… Continue reading »

Our team was having a conversation about our favorite sparkling water brands (more of that in a blog soon!) and it reminded me of the last time I had La Croix on a front porch. We stayed in a cabin near Boone, NC in the Blue Ridge Mountains last fall. Our first night we built a fire and had a relaxing evening on the porch. We left our cooler on the porch with drinks in it. The next morning we… Continue reading »

This summer has wreaked havoc with my exercise routine. Travel, work conferences, family medical issues, a personal medical issue, house projects, and a dog that suddenly developed a fear of thunder and loud rain have all contributed. It has been hard to stay focused and motivated. I haven’t quit my gym, but I have just had to adjust things.  I have still managed to build some muscle and endurance. I am looking forward to this fall when I can get… Continue reading »

My husband is a vegetarian so we usually get a good portion of our vegetables at dinner. We have been trying out some recipes to swap our protein but I realized that we hadn’t had fruit in a while. For Med Month I decided to make a conscious effort to eat more fruits and vegetables during the day. I decided to try to eat at least a fruit or vegetable with every meal and snack. It has been fun. The… Continue reading »

I hope you have found something that excites you, motivates you, and keeps you active. I know the gym isn’t for everyone. It hasn’t always been my first choice to stay active. A year ago, I decided I wanted to try to run a longer race and maybe even lose some more weight. I joined a gym and started strength training. In the past year, I haven’t lost any weight according to the scale but I have lost inches and ½… Continue reading »

Almost 80% of all New Year’s Resolutions fail by February. What would happen if you succeeded this year? What would that look like? Make a List. Write down all the healthier behaviors you want to incorporate into your life and include the “why” in the description. Be honest about the why. A healthier behavior is more likely to become a habit if it something that you want to change, not something you think you need to change for other people.… Continue reading »
