Some of Anne's new faves...

Hey y'all!  I got measured today at the weight loss center and guess what??  To date, I have lost 19.5 inches of ffffffffaaaaaattttttt.  I am one happy camper.

Thought I'd share some goodies with you:

My new favorite veggie...

That's right - kale.  All that green leafy goodness.  It's in the same family with broccoli and cabbage etc...  I like it steamed, roasted, and sauteed in a little evoo and garlic.  Flippin awesomeness!  Try it, you'll like it!

Favorite new drink:

Kombucha.  Google it.   It's a fermented tea.  Wow, what a zip!  Find it in the refrigerated organic section in the grocery store.  Nummy!  Kristin - seriously check this stuff out!  Or perhaps you already know about it and can teach me more!

Fave new workout:

Kettlebells.  Whoa, Dude.  It's weights and cardio all in one.  ** If done properly!!  Highly recommend being trained by someone who is really passionate and experienced with this technique.**

Snack food:

Roasted pecans.  I did some myself at home on Sunday during the Viking game...  They turned out soooooo darn good.    Super easy! 

I had some of Corine's Halloween candy yesterday...  whoa, instant headache followed by a massive sugar rush.  I felt horrible!  Not having any trouble avoiding that bowl of treats!

Have a great week!! 


  1. I'm writing down everything you say now Anne, LOL! Kale, Kombucha, Evoo, kettle bells, roasted pecans... YUM! I have one of my own - raw almonds, kept in the freezer! SUPER crunch! Oh, and raw, fresh mushrooms and sugar snap peas barely dipped in roasted garlic hummus - my fave snack this week!

    I posted the link for my l-o-n-g blog post in the comments under your apple crisp recipe...it's way too long to copy/paste all the stuff I wrote here. You can let me know if you get a chance to read it, and what you think...! :o)

    Thanks for the extra motivation tonight! Getting hungry at 10:00 p.m., ugh! Gotta hit the hay to avoid the fridge. LOL

  2. Hey, if you are hungry its ok to have a snack. A good snack... protein, not carby sugary stuff. A little greek yogurt, some nuts, etc..

    The carbs turn to sugar instantly (you know this alread, I know) and when we sleep it goes even faster and it turns to fffffaaaaatttt.... Your body is building muscle when we go into deep sleep so a little protein to help it along is ok!

    **I'm not that smart... this is all from Lisa, the Super Coach!!**

    I'll go and read your blog right now...
