  • Another Appointment with the ED Counselor

    Escape from Obesity
    29 Oct 2014 | 5:04 pm
    So I got a call last week from the eating disorder counselor's office stating that I had an appointment with Cloe the following day. I was surprised; I'd thought my next appointment was a couple of weeks out, but apparently she'd put me on the cancellation list and they got me in sooner. The only negative about that was I hadn't started the 'homework' yet of writing down everything I eat and when. I should have, but I figured I'd do that for the week prior to my next appointment. I still will.My second appointment was more intimate than the first. Of course, some of the things I shared with…

  • Size matters: Baby's size at birth may predict risk for disease later in life

    30 Oct 2014 | 8:49 am
    Being overweight might be better in the long term than being underweight, at least when it comes to infants. "These findings support the hypothesis that common long-term variation in the activity of genes established in the womb may underpin links between size at birth and risk for adult disease," said one of the authors.

  • An "Eating Disorder" Counselor Gives Me Advice

    19 Oct 2014 | 5:40 pm
    I mentioned years ago on my blog that I wanted to see an eating disorder specialist for help with my binge eating, but there wasn't one near enough that it wouldn't mean 3 hours round trip for a visit. Finding someone who would take my insurance was another issue. After I stopped binge eating on my own, I no longer felt the need to see a specialist. But this year's been tough, recovering from 2 years of chronic pain and the loss of loved ones in my life, so I did think seeing a regular counselor would be worthwhile and helpful... and it is. But when I've talked about the way I still like to…
  • Facing the Scale

    16 Oct 2014 | 1:04 pm
    I've been avoiding it for a long time, but yesterday I decided to just get up this morning and weigh. I guess I just didn't want to know, was afraid if there was a gain I'd feel worse (I have been feeling bad enough without adding one more thing) and honestly have had very little motivation to *do* anything about my weight anyway... so what's the point of weighing? Well as I said yesterday, the point is my health, and I need to get refocused on *that* (and weight is, at least in obesity, connected to what's going on with my health).So here we go. Scale this morning said 232 pounds. That's up…

    This week has been a tough one for me. Over the past couple of months I have been on and off AIP more times than I can count... which doesn't do anything for the elimination diet part of the equation. I'd need to be solid with the elimination part for a month (again) before I could start reintroducing things again properly (all I've reintroduced successfully so far is cocoa, nutmeg, and cumin.) I do see health benefits from AIP though, even when I am not perfect at it. It's a very natural, healthy, whole foods, anti-inflammatory diet, so I do get some benefits from eating this way for 3 days…

Which was awesome, because while I was training for Augusta, I rarely experienced that on account of the fact that I had such a strict workout schedule set that by the time the urge to run would hit, I was already heading out for whatever workout I’d planned for that day. The weather was sunny and in the mid-80s with, for Florida, mild humidity. I was about to wrap up with work and Jared was game to join me. The only question was, where should we go? I was really feeling a trail run, and nearby, we have a couple of options:…

But much has changed since 2009 so it was time to pass the brown baton. Apparently the new owners plan to do all the Someday things – replace the aged kitchen, bathroom, stairs… and put in an en-suite! Looks like they have no need for a bedroom beer cellar. We paid a visit to finalise things and camped out in the living room for old times’ sake. We narrowed down our favourite Brown House memories. Mine: the time Gareth was…

  • About Last Night...

    There have been moments in my life when I’ve sensed the presence of a deceased loved one. While warm and bittersweet, I understand those feelings to be resurrected memories of the connection we had when they were alive; me consciously sating some need I perhaps hadn’t completely identified. I don’t believe those vague presences stem from a visit by their spirit. That’s why I can’t explain what happened last night. I often employ the “Just ignore it, it will go away” approach to healthcare. But after a months-long battle with hip pain – in which the last few days I’ve been…

    You know how when you get home after being away for several days? You might think, ‘Gee, it’s good to be home.’ Yeah, well, I’m still waiting for that feeling. “Relaxed” isn’t exactly my middle name, so when Jim suggested we go to the beach because he wanted to relax, I said I probably wouldn’t like that. I need to be busy to have fun. Hiking, sightseeing, shopping, going to a play. THAT’S fun. Sitting around doing nothing? Capital B boring. Then I saw the ocean from the balcony of our 12th floor hotel room at North Myrtle Beach and I didn’t care if I did anything else all…

    Seven months ago today, my boyfriend Jim’s garage burned down, taking with it 70 percent of all he owned in the world. Second only to the pain of personally losing something or someone we love is watching someone we care about lose something they love. Conversely, the same is true when we witness their Phoenix moment, when they rise above the loss. Some people – including me – wondered if Jim would sell his place and move away from the memory of that night in February. But he meant what he said when the fire still smoldered: “I’ll rebuild.”I bought this bracelet yesterday: When I…

  • 3 Evening Habits For Weight Loss

    31 Oct 2014 | 7:00 pm
    When you're trying to lose weight, it can seem like there's a never-ending barrage of temptation as you go about your day. And it doesn't stop when you get home - evenings on the couch can ruin a day full of healthy choices if you're employing bad habits. So when it comes to staying on track in the evening, make sure you pay attention to these rules. Stop after dinner: It can be easy to mindlessly snack away while you relax, so make an effort to stay aware of why you're reaching for your pantry door. If you're doing it out of habit or because you're bored, try spending more time out of the…

  • Fatty Fish and Other Foods That Help Prevent Breast Cancer

    31 Oct 2014 | 3:19 pm
    If you want to lower your risk of breast cancer, eating less red meat and staying away from alcohol and cigarettes are all proven ways to lower your disease risk. But what you do put in your body can be just as important as what you don't. Source: Thinkstock Topping the list of foods you should be eating is courtesy of a recent study that shows that eating fatty fish can reduce your risk of developing breast cancer later in life by as much as 14 percent. The study, published in the British Medical Journal, analyzed data from over 800,000 participants and 20,000 cases of breast cancer and…
  • Low-Calorie Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins

    The following post was originally featured on Fitzala and written by Jenni K., who is part of POPSUGAR Select Fitness. I think we're all entitled to a pumpkin overdose the last three months of the year. And I like my pumpkin overdose in the form of a muffin. Specifically, this healthy pumpkin muffin recipe. Seriously though, I think the oven usually calls my name as soon as September rounds the corner. After a summer of neglect, it draws me back in with its wonderful smells and coziness that reminds me of a time when I lived in a cold, dark place (aka Seattle). Now that I live in the eternal…

  • What I Learned By Actually Reading That Drinking Milk Will Kill YouStudy

    30 Oct 2014 | 2:30 am
    So a study was published the other day in The BMJ. In it authors explored their theory that milk consumption might in fact increase your risk of death and of hip fracture. Why? Well they finger D-galactose, one of the breakdown byproducts of the lactose in milk, which in animal models has been shown to be pro-inflammatory and lead to shortened lifespans and neurodegeneration. Extrapolating from the mouse models led the authors to infer that 1-2 glasses of daily milk would provide sufficient D-galactose for human harm. The authors further assert that not only can D-galactose lead to shortened…
  • One Year Into Our Office's Ministry Funded Childhood Obesity Program

    29 Oct 2014 | 2:30 am
    A little over a year ago our office launched the Family Reset program - a program designed to work with the parents of 5-12 year old children whose weights are of concern. Some parents were worried about their children's potential future health concerns. Others were worried about current weight related bullying or self-esteem issues and weren't sure how best to help their kids. We wanted to put together a program and a team of health professionals to address all aspects of weight - from health to bias, from body image to fitness. Briefly, the fully funded (there's zero cost to families)…

    I know I've said this before, but I need to say it again. I honestly don't get it. I don't get how really smart folks, folks trained to critically appraise actual journal articles, folks for who evidence is reported to be extremely important, regularly tweet out press releases without first having read the study. Press releases are designed for hype and publicity, not for measured and scientifically supportable conclusions. If you care about your audience, and you also care about evidence, you owe it to both to stop, read the article in question, and link to it in your tweet along with your…

And, shocker, the singular intervention of stocking healthy foods alongside chips, candy, and soda in corner stores didn't all by itself lead the surrounding 9-11 year olds to lose weight. Yet that didn't stop The Obesity Society from tweeting out, Jumping on pop pub health initiatives w/o science costs time & resources-…

  • Mushrooms: The Other Other White Meat

    29 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    (CC BY 2.0) Brian Glanz/Flickr People who are trying to reduce the amount of meat in their diets often substitute mushrooms for meat. Mushrooms do have a meaty texture and add a flavor known as umami, that tends to be very satisfying, which makes them ideal to include in pasta sauce, stews, casseroles, chili and other mixed dishes to maintain a rich flavor and texture while reducing or eliminating the meat they contain. Mushrooms are great, but they have their limits But mushrooms are not a substitute for meat nutritionally, especially for vegetarians and vegans, because they are not…

    The race may not always be to the swift, but weight loss can be To be successful at losing and maintaining weight, slow and steady wins the race. This is the conventional wisdom. But now a recent study out of Australia challenges that paradigm. The study, led by Joseph Proietto, a University of Melbourne professor and head of the weight control clinic at Austin Health in Australia, has found that rapid weight loss was just as good as gradual weight loss for long term weight control. Weight-loss shakes vs. leisurely weight loss The researchers recruited 200 obese adults with BMIs ranging from…

The seeds were sprinkled on the figure’s head and watered, resulting in a green fright-wig hairdo. Many other Chia Pet figures followed, including a popular Barrack Obama version, and every year on Halloween countless unfortunate dogs are dressed up in undignified Chia Pet costumes by their owners (see photo). But about five years ago the seed of this Central American plant began to acquire a reputation as a super-nutritious weight loss…

Her Mini-Me, while only 8.75 years old, appeared to follow suit. She, too, loved being brazen strong. She knew she was her own superhero: She loved the SIZE & *BULK* of her burgeoning muscles and would display them without being asked. Frequently. Our Misfit was pretty damn prideful happy.

    When was the last time someone said something to you that Totally. Blew. Your Mind? It happened to me this summer. Here’s the story. I was sitting next to a woman at a meeting, and we begin chatting about our children (of course). She shared that her 14 year-old daughter had recently met her long-lost father who, after more than a decade of being ghost, resurfaced with a burning desire to be a Real Father. The woman was, understandably, cautious. The daughter was, naturally, thrilled. They invited the father to the daughter’s upcoming 8th grade promotion ceremony and hoped for the best.

  • Home Insurance Changes to Flood Protection

    Tim Currie
    21 Oct 2014 | 8:51 am
    As you know, Ontario has seen a significant increase in the amount of water damage claims in both commercial and personal insurance policies over the last few years. The damage caused by last summer’s flooding was record setting. With changing weather patterns, there have been some significant changes in the water damage coverages offered by many insurance companies. Many of the changes have reduced the available coverage for damage to your home as a result of over-land flooding and/or sewer back up. It’s important to note that you may be eligible for subsidies (depending upon where you…

    The top safety issues we face in the car insurance industry have traditionally been to do with texting while driving or being under the influence when behind the wheel. In other words: all forms of distracted driving. While these areas certainly deserve much of our attention, there is still a serious concern around fatigue and its impact on both safety and car insurance rates in Ontario. In fact, Ontario is considered to be at a higher risk for offense in the area of driver fatigue. About 20% of fatal accidents in Canada are related to driver fatigue (Transport Canada). In Ontario, that…
  • Do you Need an Umbrella Insurance Policy?

    Tim Currie
    12 Sep 2014 | 1:27 pm
    First, let’s try and understand what an umbrella insurance policy provides. This type of policy is an excess policy that provides additional liability coverage that sits on top of your current (or primary) auto policy, homeowner’s policy or boat policy. It will also add some additional liability coverage’s that your primary policy may not cover. The key here is to fill as many gaps as may occur when and if you require protection against legal action. In other words, If you are sued, and the amount of your primary liability policy is exhausted, your umbrella insurance policy will kick…

    There’s been a great deal of drama (and a fair share of comedy) in my neighborhood this week. We’ve had news crews camped out and helicopters circling overhead. Residents have set up lawn chairs to watch the story progress. Or not progress, as it turned out. And it’s all because of what everyone’s calling “that old house.” It seems the Wills family sold some property they owned in a commercial corridor. On that property was an old farmhouse listed on the National Register of Historic Places. To save the family home, they decided to move it onto a…

    Finally, I’m home again. It feels good…but sad, too. I had such a fun weekend with my friends! Y’all know I can’t have a normal vacation. A car crashes into a restaurant in which I’m eating, cops bang on my hotel room door demanding to be admitted, a freak spring snowstorm occurs–my travels always seem to have something odd about them. This was no different. After meeting up with my friends on Wednesday and then spending Thursday finalizing details and setting up our meeting room, I was more than ready for a good night’s sleep.

  • Spooky Spaghetti: Organic Black Bean Pasta with Roasted Tomatillo Avocado Sauce

    31 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    To round out our Frighteningly Frugal Organic Meals I created a this spaghetti recipe. I discovered this organic pasta while attending ShiftCon. As a vegetarian, black beans are a regular protein source in my diet. This pasta is made entirely out of organic black beans and salt. Those are literally the only two ingredients. It also makes this recipe gluten free. Since it isn’t a traditional spaghetti, it needed an untraditional sauce. I went with common Mexican pairings with black beans, and the results were delicious. Organic Black Bean Pasta with Roasted Tomatillo Avocado Sauce…

Don’t worry, it tastes nothing like the candy. This organic pizza layers sauce, melty cheese, and colorful organic veggies on an easy, made from scratch, yeasty dough. It bakes to perfection and slices up to create a savory nod to a sweet treat. No artificial colors or flavors in this pizza. The vibrant colors are from nature herself.

    As breast cancer awareness month ends, moms everywhere should know about another danger lurking in our homes: your feminine care products may be making you sick. These must-have tools that every woman needs can harbor unsafe chemicals. The FDA has categorized tampons and sanitary pads as medical devices. They made this categorization thanks to toxic shock syndrome (TSS), a complication caused by a bacterial infection, which can be  life-threatening, according to the Mayo Clinic. TSS has been linked with tampons and, indeed, a number of toxic tampon brands were removed from the market several…

I had a large bunch of over-ripe bananas sitting on my counter and decided to experiment taking my favorite Low-fat Banana Nut Bread Recipe and making it gluten-free. Since the recipe makes two loafs (yes you can halve it if you wish) I thought why not use two different gluten-free flours to see which yields the best results. Not having a ton of experience baking…

  • The Slow, Steady Process of Change and How Blogging Helps

    30 Oct 2014 | 10:26 am
    Yesterday I did what I usually do here on the blog. I wrote a post I needed to write for me about stopping the pursuit of skinny and acknowledging I’m in a good place. Lots of people chimed in with comments (not going to lie — love the comments) and as I started to reply to this one in particular I thought it warranted an entire post. Cindy says: Roni, I hear you and I get it. What I don’t understand is why the need to devote an entire blog post to this topic if ‘you are so over the number.’ I feel like I read this same schtick about every 4-6 weeks in one way or…
  • ‘Whatever You Do, Don’t Gain Any More Weight’

    29 Oct 2014 | 2:42 pm
    That’s what the doctor told me at my yearly physical.  She left the room and I took this photo. According to the doctor’s scale I weigh 163 lbs. I’m just over 5’8” tall. My BMI is 24.97. Let me chart that so you can have a nice little visual. Yup, that’s me sitting on the border of overweight. I’m so over this, it’s not even funny. Any other time in my life this would have devastated me but, really, I am over it. The scale is telling me nothing I need to know nor want to know any longer. Remember last month when I posted this?

It was exactly 10 a.m., I already went to the gym, made the boys pancakes for breakfast, had a conference call with my publicist for the Little Bean book, fixed the edits I messed up yesterday in the #wycwyc book, and replied to some emails about the Fit Club I’m helping start at my son’s elementary school.

Our weekend began Friday with The 9-Year-Old’s fall festival at school. The kids dressed up and we danced in the school gym. Honestly, I had a ball.

That’s the full, printed copy-edited manuscript of ‪#‎wycwyc‬. Is it strange to still have I-can’t-believe-this-is-happening thoughts at this stage? I still can’t believe I’m writing a book!  Me, Mrs. Failed-English-101-in-College — MAN, did I hate writing back then.

Their main argument is based on research by Gallup which concluded that “Very religious Americans are more likely to practice healthy behaviors than those who are moderately religious or nonreligious.” The data appears to agree with this statement, although there is not a huge difference between the habits…
  • Try To Stomach Warmed Up Pasta To Lose Weight

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:43 am
    Scientists from the BBC have discovered that warming up yesterday’s pasta can help you to manage your weight better. It seems that pasta, the super concentrated, sugar laden, refined carb that is blamed for making so many people fat is now a good food group – so long as you don’t eat it straight away. In Michael Mosley’s latest episode of  Trust Me, I’m a Doctor, he presented findings from a small study that looked at the effect of eating reheated food. Eating freshly cooked pasta is still a bad idea; your body will digest it quickly and your blood sugar levels…

    Senna alexandrina – the plant that Senokot comes from British children are abusing laxative pills in an attempt to lose weight with many taking dozens every day. Stores are selling an unhealthy number of tablets to children and this is causing serious health problems. Laxatives for weight loss? Contrary to popular belief laxatives do not aid fat loss at all – any weight lost is from water loss. Laxatives act on the bowels to forcibly remove waste and it does this by drawing water from the body to loosen stools. The waste in the bowels is the end point of digestion and no further…

    Things are still suck-tastic in my life right now, but thanks to great friends, I was able to get outside this weekend to enjoy the Kentucky fall weather and horse racing that I love so much. When I put this coat on, I instantly felt transformed into a Gladiator (Olivia Pope fans, anyone?) It’s a mix between a cape and a coat, as the buttons are only at the top, the sleeves are short, and the back has a seamed bottom. When I put this coat on, I feel like I can take on the world. It’s amazing. Corey Origami Coat c/o Gwynnie Bee Old Navy Wrap Dress (old, similar) Old Navy Leggings…

I first saw this dress at Full Figured Fashion Week and couldn’t wait for it to come out. The simplicity of the A-line skirt plus versatility of the 3/4 length sleeves makes this a year-round staple.

If you love Mr. Goodbar, you will love this protein packed shake.  You can have this after a hard workout or for a meal replacement but be careful…not only do the peanuts pack a powerful taste but they increase the fat and calories of this shake. Regardless, this shake tastes heavenly and on occasion, could be a real treat!

What’s better than eating a Hershey bar?  How about drinking a protein shake that tastes like a Hershey bar but is packed full of protein?  How about a protein shake with fewer calories and fat than a Hershey bar? I have the recipe for you!  You are going to love this shake almost as much as eating a big bar of chocolate.

My surgeon informed me they'll keep the catheter drain in for a few more weeks (that was expected). After they take it out, he said there's still a risk the infection could still be lingering & if that's the case, they'll need to go back in & open everything up. A fourth surgery (that was not expected). I was so flabbergasted & caught off guard I didn't even ask the questions I should have. I should have asked why it would even be a possibility to have 4 surgeries. I should…

I think they just want to make sure that I'm healing okay and that everything looks as normal as can be. If all goes well, I will have the catheter taken out within the next month/two months.
