LES SMASH! Goodbye Scale…..


Last weekend I had the pleasure of being invited to a SMASH The SCALE event.


I have had a LOVE/HATE…mostly HATE…relationship with my scale.  It DOES NOT measure the weight I can lift, the clothes that fit more comfortably, the smile on my face.


So it was time to say goodbye.

Goodbye my Enemy

Goodbye my Enemy

We wrote messages to them.

And then we SMASHED.



It was so freeing.  And I do not miss stepping on it one bit!

No Friends of Mine

I LOVE that I have traded my weights in.  I have watched myself go from 8lb to 10lb and now 15lb…and only getting stronger!

I also still fit my summer clothes…going on 5 years for some of them!!

How do you measure progress?


Super Easy Roasted Asparagus!


Super Easy Roasted Asparagus!

Delish! and so EASY!

I LOVE asparagus!
But sometimes I get overwhelmed with what to do with it.

For this, I put the oven at 425.
I washed and trimmed the woody end off.
Then I spritzed it with an olive/canola oil blend and fresh ground pepper and pink himalayan salt.
I roasted for about 30 minutes, turning constantly.

I wanted it to be crunchy, so I thought I would broil…not a good plan when using parchment paper! Almost caught the kitchen on fire! But it all turned out!

I just continued to cook until it was the desired texture.
