A (personal) walking revolution

Lifestyle changes are what's going around the office here at the Tribune this season. It's time for me to jump on board too.

Avoiding temptation takes planning

We have officially entered into the holiday season. You know, that time of year where every other day someone brings in a big tray of cookies or candy. Or they bring in that dessert they want to make a trial run at before the big party. Not only that, but you find yourself shopping during meal time and need a little pick me up to tide you over until you can eat a healthy dinner at home.

Healthy surf and turf!

With the holidays getting into full swing, life for most of us is getting hectic. Between all the big meals, the parties, the kids needing treats for their classes, never mind our day jobs...! Who has time for it all?

Thanksgiving no reason to cheat

Actions speak louder than words. Oh, how true that is. With Thanksgiving tomorrow, so many of us will have a "cheat day" and opt for the second helping of stuffing or an extra dollop of whipped cream on our pumpkin pie.

Paleo diet continues shedding the pounds

Well, another week has gone by and so has another two pounds via Paleo. I guess losing two pounds in a week is good, but it is still hard to be patient. I know didn't get where I am today in a month, so I shouldn't be surprised if it takes a little time to get where I need to be.

Try simple, yet creative flavors

This recipe is an oldie, but goodie! I had a big zucchini that needed using up and I was sooo in the mood for these yummy (and guiltless) zucchini pizza bites!! It is a perfect way to use up all the zucchini in your garden and satisfy your craving for pizza in a low-carb way.

First week of Paleo: So far so good

You know, it's really difficult for me to admit, but so far so good. After my first week on Paleo, I've dropped three pounds and feel less bloated. I don't seem to retain water as much – even after a dinner of kraut and brats. Normally that's good for about five extra pounds the following 48 hours. This go around, not an ounce. Don't ask me to explain, it's just how it is. I can already notice less bulk around my mid-section.

Stick to the rules, with or without inspiration

Well it's week two of this column, and I wish I had something inspirational to write about. With another week of dedication and determination, I only lost one pound. But I have to keep looking at it positively. It's one more pound than I had lost last week, and it's one pound I didn't put on. And that's the point, right? Changing your life is for the better – for the sake of being healthy, not for the sake of a number on a scale.
