My CrossFit membership expired at the beginning of this month and for the first time in a long time I decided not to renew it right away.  I’ve been exploring other fitness options and this week it was yoga.  After two days in a row I woke up on the third day so surprisingly sore! [...]

Mint pesto?

  Sometimes when I cook, Tony will often say ” you know what would make this really good?” and I say “what?”, Tony then says: “lemon, mint and peppers”. So, today I share with you my mint pesto. I served it on chicken, but you could easily put it on lamb or pork, or use [...]

Pot o’curry!

chicken curry-001

  One pot makes things soooo much easier. I know I don’t have to tell you all. It’s really quite simple, all you need is a few minutes to chop, spice it up and let it go, then onto other business for the day.  Today I made curried chicken, actually, its cooking as I’m writing [...]

Sweet Cheeks Uncut!

Bacon-Brussels

The other day as I was in a rush, I whipped up something quick and tasty from the few random ingredients I had in my fridge.  Right before I was about to scarf down the entire dish I realized…”Durrrrrr Lefty!  Take a picture of this for the blog!  I should share this too even though [...]

I did it!!  I ran my first marathon ever. I even ran the whole thing, well besides the one bathroom break and the slow downs to grab water, drink it and move on. It was pretty cool. Who knew that I would ever do a marathon? (well I guess I did, because I planned to [...]

Call To Action!

PostMB

Dear Cheekers, Last weekend I was in a seminar and on the second day when some snacks were brought out everything was sugar.  Chocolate covered nuts, cookies, brownies…oh my.  I find it indignant that people think treats have to be sugary treats!  We need to cut this out people!  The nation is obese!  Morbidly obese! [...]

Egg-ceptionally Annoying.

Bacon Sandwich

As most of you guys know, I haven’t eaten much sugar in 2013.  As a matter of fact, I didn’t eat any sugar in all of January, so it was a little surprising (and a lot annoying) when I began to develop acne last month in February.  What?!  I’m eating my healthy little buns off, [...]
