Dear Readers,

I'm writing to you from church camp (aka my absolute favorite place). I've been having an amazing time learning, making new friends, & getting competitive with Team Teal. (My pretty awesome team this year).

The food is delicious and they serve several fruits and/or veggies with every meal. Last night I got the opportunity to serve dinner and I chose to serve green beans (of course) so I could talk my friends and the counselors into a little healthy eating. And thankfully, it was much easier to convince teenagers and adults to eat their veggies than ...

In the Box Week 44

June 24, 2014 4:08 p.m.

I haven't posted since in so long I have lost count of what week it is in my weight management journey. Since the Friday after Easter I was away taking care of my mother who was very ill (like 4 hospitals and 8 ambulance rides). I was with her for 6-7 weeks. While she is better she has a way to go. I was with her at her worst when finding the correct diagnosis was challenging. If I was to rate my stress level of none being 0 and 10 the most I had ever experienced, I would have ...

Week 41

June 24, 2014 4:04 p.m.

Dear Readers,

I just got home from kids church camp where I volunteered in the kitchen all week. I had so much fun! I got to see all my friends, work hard doing something I care about, & sweet talk kids into eating fruits and veggies.

The rest of the kitchen helpers were teasing me about sounding like a mom, but I genuinely wanted them to be healthy! My favorite response when kids turned down veggies was, "Are you sure? Not even one?" And I would have kids come up to me later to tell me that they ate their baby ...

Week 40

June 13, 2014 11:43 a.m.

Dear Readers,

Well, summer vacation is in full swing and so far it's been great. Like I told you last week, I was a volunteer at Jump Start camp and since I promised to tell you about it, here it goes!

Jump Start was totally awesome. I was a counselor for a super group of kids, and my co-counselor, Melissa, was awesome! We did all kinds of fun outdoor activities with the kids and cooked our own lunch as well. We made these really yummy and healthy chicken fajitas, guacamole, and salsa (I'll try and get the recipes ...

Week 39

June 06, 2014 2:24 p.m.

Dear Readers,

So far summer is off to a great start! I've been able to have so much time to myself & I love it! I've been to the Y every day this week, however I may not go tomorrow because I'll be helping my mom at Sarah Bush Lincoln's Jump Start camp as a counselor and goodness knows that'll be a work out! Running around after kids, participating in Zumba, and games all day long will be plenty of exercise for me. (Not to mention I've got to be up at 6:15!) However ...
