Post thanksgiving

What's up party have you been? I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I know I did. All of my children were home, we had a wonderful meal followed by lots of games and wayyyyy too many carbs.

Was it the same for you? I think I ate more carbs than I have had my entire But it is ok, I enjoyed it, the debauchery is over and it was back to life as we know it right away. Well..... not quite, I continued to eat my weight in carbohydrates until Sunday evening, which meant I had to take drastic measures.

 So a cleanse it was, at first I wasn't going to talk about it in case I faultered but, surprisingly my willpower showed up out of nowhere. Not really, it's a pretty easy and simple to follow cleanse and I get to eat real food on it so that helps. I am currently down 4lbs in 2 days. Today is the last day and I will report my results tomorrow. The coolest part is the hubs was away on a business trip while I was doing it so when he arrives tonight I will look noticeably slimmer to him...YAYYYY!!!!

Stay tuned....I will keep you posted.

Cheddar mashed cauliflower

My new favorite way to make cauliflower. Cauliflower rice is taking over the world and I love it. I recently fell in love with cauli-risotto. But one night I wanted it cheesier so i added more cheese and played around with it and googled some stuff and this is what I came up with. It tasted so good, I hope you like it.

  • A bag of cauliflower rice or a head of cauliflower
  • 2-3 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite cheese, I chose cheddar
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Clean and chop the cauliflower into smaller pieces.
  2. Place in a microwave safe bowl with 2 Tbsp of cream and 1 Tbsp of butter.
  3. Microwave, uncovered, on high for six minutes.
  4. Stir to mix cauliflower with cream/butter mixture. Microwave for another six minutes on high.
  5. Remove from the microwave and put into a blender or food processor along with the cheese. Puree until smooth.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste. You can adjust the cream and butter to your preference
This was so delicious and so satisfying that I couldn't believe it. It is a little sweet but that's because its cauliflower but it was truly amazing. I hope you enjoy it.  When and if you try it shoot me and email and give me your honest opinion @

hello again

Well, it has definitely been a while. I really struggle with making time to stay consistent on my blog. I must work on that.. I find that it may be easier to find the time now that I am injured. Yup....I'm injured, somehow I have strained my trapezius muscle and have been sidelined from working out for a minimum of 3 weeks.. or until the pain subsides.

Now  that I will have more time on my hands, I  guess I can use them for I am doing my best to see the silver lining in this little setback. I had been working to push through a plateau before this happened so this may be the break my body needed for me to really focus on my nutrition, which is truly the biggest piece of a weight loss program. So that is the plan, hanging out with you guys again, getting to know me and how I am going to continue to lose weight, get healthier and heal my body through  my nutrition while injured. I look  forward to it. Until we meet again. Ciao
