    As fall approaches, I can’t get enough of nutrient dense root vegetables. Most notably: the sweet potato.

Able to be eaten while driving. 2. Something cold (I can't heat things up obviously) 3. Or, something in a thermos, I do have a thermos. 4. Something that can travel well in a lunchbox all day. 5. Can't take too long to pack or I just won't do it. 6. Filling- I can't munch through out the day really, only when I am driving from client to client, which is usually around 12 and 3.

    Forgive me, Scale, for I have sinned. It has been 3 weeks since my last workout. I ate three donuts, 1 chocolate bar, multiple mints and a couple of sodas. I had potatoes and bacon, fried veal, Greek take-out (the greasy kind), a bag of Chicago Mix popcorn and a lot of beers. And there she be. Mind you, a lot of that happened throughout the span of a couple weeks but I HAVE NOT BEEN GOOD. After August hit and then September, I found myself barely able to find the time to get to the gym and I didn't have the energy to cook anything healthy.

The "carb flu" is gone, but the cravings are still there sometimes. I know it will continue to get easier.

  • The Insanity of Binge Eating Disorder, and the Long Path to Recovery

    17 Sep 2014 | 2:05 pm
    A long time ago, I developed Binge Eating Disorder. I'm not even sure exactly how that happened; I started out a normal weight, with normal eating habits. I know I began comfort eating when I lost a much-wanted pregnancy at 21. I probably ate too much in general in my early 20's just because I was a good cook, loved to bake, and enjoyed eating those things with my family. I put on an extra 20 - 25 pounds after three pregnancies and two losses in a short period of time. I ate sometimes to feel better. To stuff down the awful grief. A piece of pumpkin loaf was a nice distraction; a cinnamon…
  • AIP Breakfast: Summer Squash Hash

    15 Sep 2014 | 9:38 am
    This morning I wanted to share a breakfast that I enjoy many days, especially during the summer months when summer squash is abundant. A breakfast "hash" is usually made from potatoes, and while I've made breakfast hash from sweet potatoes on AIP, sometimes I want a less starchy, lighter option for breakfast. Thus was born the summer squash hash.My favorite squash for this is patty pan squash. It is colorful and sweet and seems to release less liquid than other varieties. But I've also made hash from zucchini and yellow crookneck squash with success.First, get your bacon started in the pan. I…

    4 Sep 2014 | 5:20 pm
    Just a quick update. I am sick... kind of miserable. Nothing major, just seems like a bad head cold and some nausea on the side. It started with lots of sneezing on Sunday, which I thought was just allergies, and then a headache on Monday. I wasn't sure if it had something to do with the reintroduction of some seed spices I was working on, so I quit those and went back to strict plain AIP. But over a few days it was clear I had a head cold. Congestion, headache, super tired, etc. I'm sure it'll be fine in a few days, but wow, the scale popped up 3 pounds overnight. I'm not eating a lot but…

  • Swim Workout I Did: I Like Those Odds

    18 Sep 2014 | 4:00 am
    I try to get up early and meet friends at the pool for a good swim at least once or twice a week, for a couple of reasons. For one thing, it keeps me accountable to the morning workout thing, which is great, plus, the group I swim with is fast, so every time I go, I’m guaranteed to be pushed a little past my comfort zone. Or a lot, in some cases. Since I’m a sprinter at heart, I love when we have what we call “Fast Fridays,” which basically means we show up ready to do some short, hard sprints, sometimes broken up with some longer aerobic efforts.

I saw 123 on the scale the other day which is the lowest ever and I'm thrilled I don't have to field so many questions about my weight loss anymore - I just get compliments on my outfits :) Smalls are officially a bit big so I'm wearing xs and…

I got up early enough on Saturday to have the beach to myself before spring break exploded! The ONLY bad thing about traveling for a race is my no alcohol the day before the race policy. I happily drank water and even did some yoga and a plank on the beach. plank selfie!nervous about "runners knee" but it ended up being fine!The next day I got up at 5am for the 7am race.

  • Rebuilding

    3 Sep 2014 | 9:28 am
    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…

    4 Aug 2014 | 7:03 am
    This month, we bid a fond AIM farewell to our colleague, Shelley. She will continue to blog at My Journey to Fit, and we wish her the best in all her endeavors, particularly as she trains for the Houston Half-Marathon.We’ve also decided to post AIM quarterly rather than monthly. Our next post will appear November 3. Nothing doesn’t change, and forward is rarely a straight line. In my ongoing journey of weight loss and maintenance, not only does my body continue to change, so does my mind. I discontinued my Weight Watchers membership about 2 years ago, but the knowledge I acquired from…
  • Where Have I Been All My Life?

    22 Jul 2014 | 6:54 am
    If there is a lesson I learn over and over again it is that nothing is permanent. Nothing stays super awesome, nothing stays super bad, and nothing stays just OK, especially if we choose them not to be. I’ve been wandering in a haze of OKness since finishing a nutrition certification program last year. I’d spent two years training for something I thought I wanted to do, only to find out it wasn’t what I wanted to do. While I’m still committed to my own nutritional health and wellness, my heart isn’t in counseling others about theirs. My first and true love are words, and while I…

We chose this month’s theme more than three weeks ago to avoid deadline panic. And so, as with most things that I need to do in the future, I thought, ‘I’ll get on that…someday.’ Today is “someday” and I’m just now getting my thoughts on the screen.

  • Too Much of a Good Thing?

    Ami Spencer
    29 Jul 2014 | 4:52 am
    If you’re craving an afternoon snack and you’re more likely to choose an apple and a handful of almonds over a candy bar, you’re making great progress on your journey toward a more healthy lifestyle. But just because you’re making more nutritious food choices doesn’t mean you’ll lose weight. Too much of a good thing is still too much. Losing weight ultimately comes down to a simple formula: calories eaten are less than calories burned. Whether you’re eating 2500 calories worth of junk food or 2500 calories worth of fruit, vegetables, whole…

    You may have heard that having a pet can improve your mood, decrease your risk for depression and lower your level of stress. Now there’s research that having a dog could help you get fit and improve your overall health. A recent study presented at this year’s annual meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine suggested that people who walked a dog on a regular basis sat less during the day, had a lower body mass index (BMI), smoked less, had fewer chronic illnesses, and were less depressed. Like having a workout buddy who motivates you to get (and keep) moving, having a…

    19 Sep 2014 | 8:30 pm
    Regularly eating out can result in consuming hundreds of unwanted calories in a sitting, but luckily, there are many ways to save calories when you eat out. A 2012 study found that these strategies do, in fact, work; people eat fewer calories when they dine out if they regularly put a few mindful eating tips into practice. In the study, the group that regularly attended an intervention course, which included classes focused on education, tips, and meditation, ate about 300 fewer calories than before studying mindful eating and ate fewer calories overall than the control group, who didn't have…

As I mentioned over on US News and World Report, charities, especially those tied to public health, given diet and weight related illnesses are North America's primary causes of preventable death, should be on the front lines of actively working to decrease the number of opportunities for junk food's consumption.

Apparently, unabashedly, and transparently, in part no doubt consequent to the $105 million endowment provided to Emory by a former Coca-Cola CEO, and in part no doubt due to the reported fact that 16% of Emory's $6.3 billion endowment fund is made up of Coca-Cola stock (down from 63% in 1998 and 47% in 2002), all first year Emory University students are brought together as they start school to toast their futures with a Coca-Cola beverage.

    (CC BY-NC-ND 2.0) Miriam/Flickr Smoothies have a healthy reputation because they contain fresh fruit and first came to commercial prominence via health food stores. But are they a good choice to help with weight loss? Not necessarily. The bottom line for weight loss is to change the balance between the calories you consume relative to the calories you burn through physical activity. Smoothies may make that easier or harder, depending on their calorie and nutrient content. Smoothies can provide several servings of fruit – and even vegetables – as can also be a good source of…

    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…

    I mentioned earlier this month that I wanted to get back into running and try for a half marathon. I signed up for the St. Jude half marathon (with the mindset that I could later change to a 5k in that race if training went horribly) and decided to raise a bit of money for the awesome hospital (please donate, they charge families nothing for life-saving care! heroes.stjude.org/maryinmem). After a break for moving to a new place, this week I started my training plan! I’m using a Run/Walk Beginner Half training plan through the RunKeeper app. My first run/walk session was excellent! I…

    Hello, friends! I finally finished moving and getting settled in. The move is another temporary move which is giving me a chance to explore another Memphis neighborhood (and save money for my next big life goals!). This new area includes my next door neighbors who have chickens and a rooster that wakes me up way too early. Ultimately I already know I don’t want to buy a house in this area but it will work for now. It’s another interesting experience to add to my list. JuJu loves it though because she has a large backyard and friends to run with. Unfortunately the space comes with…

Can your weight affect your attitude? The answer is yes. If you are overweight, your weight can (not will) affect your overall attitude. Here are a couple of reasons why? • Pain tends to make people quick tempered. If you’re overweight and have bad knees, a bad hip, you have a bad back. The pain could be making you quick tempered. • When you can’t do something or have a harder time doing it because you are…

    Greetings from…Memphis! :)  After another week working in Nashville, I’m safe at home. Safe, and zonked. For the most part, the week was quiet. I worked my paid job in the morning and my unpaid job for a few hours in the afternoon and evening. And I walked a lot in between. I started on Sunday with a return to Two Rivers Park and Shelby Bottoms trails. Y’all remember this bridge over the Cumberland River from my last Nashville trip: Here’s a look from the bridge down to the Shelby Bottoms greenway: Not so bad getting down there, but getting back up wasn’t so…

    I’m zipping along here, still going a half dozen different ways but in a mostly controlled manner. I had a work trip to the Nashville area last week, which was quite enjoyable because I got to stay in the Opryland area. Not that I care anything about Opryland, but I do LOVE the miles of paved walking trails in the area. After taking a couple of days off all exercise to try to get my back straightened out, I was more than ready to MOVE. On the drive over I had some BBQ Tofu Bites for sustenance. And to keep from gnawing off my arm. These things are tasty travel snacks, let me tell you,…

  • How to Eat Organic on the Cheap

    17 Sep 2014 | 7:10 am
    Eating organic is no longer a fad, it’s a full blown movement. “Organic food sales are increasing by double digits annually, and more than 80 percent of parents reported buying organic food for their families last year,” said Laura Batcha, Interim Co-Executive Director for OTA. This shift towards organic makes sense considering the benefits. Not only are you eliminating pesticides, GMOs, and artificial ingredients, but you’re also getting more nutrition. Still, with all of these reasons to eat an organic diet, there is a big reason some families don’t make the…

    These sweet plantains are baked in the oven and then stuffed with a savory turkey picadillo filling and topped with cheese – pretty hard to resist! Similar to a Puerto Rican Pastelón which is really more of a plantain lasagna, instead these are made as individual boats which are easy to make, filling and perfect as a main dish.If you're not very familiar with plantains, they are similar to bananas only they need to be cooked. Green plantains are usually meant for salty chips or tostones, but when the plantains are very ripe, almost black, that's when they are at their sweetest!

    Eat protein with every meal. It will help you cut calories without feeling hungry because you are eating enough. And, it will help your fat loss and weight loss efforts. One of the knocks on fad diets is that you feel like you're starving most of the time.For example, a study published in Nutrition Research shows that a breakfast including eggs reduces hunger pangs and decreases calorie intake for the rest of the day. It takes your body longer to digest protein, so you will fill fuller for a longer period of time by eating more foods rich in protein (thermic effect).  All the foods you…

    You don’t need instant oats to make a quick oatmeal breakfast. You can cook protein banana oatmeal on your stove in less than 10 minutes! In fact, I encourage you to stay away from instant oats as they are highly processed (precooked and dried) and often contain added sugar. My rule of thumb is to avoid processed foods as much as possible. Old-fashioned oats, also known as rolled oats, are much less processed because they are only steamed and then rolled flat. Ingredients (1 Serving): 1/2 cup rolled oats 1 cup water 1 scoop vanilla protein powder 1 banana Handful of sliced almonds…

    Build a solid foundation for weight lifting The most important factor when beginning to weight lift is learning proper form. This comes from watching videos from bodybuilding.com (NOT people at your gym) and practicing these moves in front of the mirror. To find the videos, visit bodybuilding.com and type in the exercise you want to see in the search bar. Teaching your body proper form is much easier to do with ligher weights as opposed to heavier weights. It is for this reason that I always recommend starting off weight lifting with higher reps (reps of 12 is recommended) and lighter weights…
