Weight Loss: I Hit a Plateau (Angie)

Ugh the dreaded plateau… I knew it would come sooner or later, but I was hoping it would come later rather than sooner!  As of writing this I am officially down 58 pounds, 2 pant sizes and a shirt size and boy do I feel wonderful!  I have a lot more energy and the other…

Cooking: Italian Sub Roll-Ups

We love Italian style subs, even more so since we visited Great Lakes Grinders in Ohio.  The Heavy Italian sub was to die for, literally.  I was craving one and obviously we are nowhere close to Ohio so I decided to come up with a version of my own.  Now, we are on the Keto…

Weight Loss: It’s a Journey

A friend and I were discussing weight loss and during our conversation she mentioned something that just stuck in my head.  She said something along the line of… weight loss is a journey, remember you are not running a marathon… and this couldn’t ring more true.  All too often I find that I am “running”…

Cooking: Jon’s Famous Guacamole

Guacamole has to be one of our favorite things to eat and after trying several store bought versions we could just not find one that hit the mark.  To be honest there is just nothing like a good homemade guacamole in my opinion.  After a bit of trial and error I think Jon came up…
