March was a great month for us. We met some great people and have had a chance to share our story with all you. We are blessed! Everyone has a story BUT not everyone gets the chance to share his or her story with the world. We don’t think we are special or did something that someone else hasn’t already accomplished but our situation is different because someone found this blog. One CNN article put us in the spotlight to inspire and motivate others to lose weight and move to a healthier lifestyle. With that being said, we wouldn’t be… View Post

Whenever we have company, this is my go to recipe for my banana loving friends and family. I always want to show people you can still indulge without really breaking your nutritional bank!

Start today if… View Post

My Rock n Roll Dallas experience was amazing.  I was really hesitant about running this race because the Gusher was just two weeks before.  I had never run two half marathons that close to each other and I was just afraid to commit, but I’m glad that I did. After the Gusher, my knee was bothering me and I got worried about not being able to run in Dallas.  I did small short runs, became really great friends with my foam roller and did lots and lots of stretching.  I even cut back on teaching my spin classes (I like… View Post

The first question people always ask is about what we eat.  What we is important, but I think the real question should be how much do you eat.  Portion control is something everyone struggles with, even if you don’t realize it.  The rest of the world labels Americans as hungry because we’re always eating…and overeating.  That portion on your plate at your favorite restaurant is more than likely two servings of food, but most people eat the whole plate without even thinking of that. We are constantly asked about what we eat when we are out and our response is… View Post
