My son and I are doing some extended travel on the east coast, which will be a great time to catch up with friends and family, introduce them to my boy, and — most importantly, at least for this blog — give me a chance to practice what I’ve learned in the Commit to Fit…

Now that I have a toddler (wait, how did that happen?!), I’m now heading toward full-on “I DON’T WANNA!” land. My kiddo is a pretty easygoing guy, but there are definitely times where he has no interest in getting into (or out of!) the tub, having a diaper change, stopping playing with trucks to have…

Here are a few healthy and delicious meals I’ve made recently, featuring some tasty fall flavors and seasonal produce. Autumnal Chicken: I make chicken in the slow cooker quite frequently, using whatever vegetables look good at the market, plus whatever spices and sauces seem interesting to me at the moment. Some of these experiments are…

I really enjoy cooking with fresh seasonal vegetables and local organic meats rather than relying on pre-made or processed foods. In the Bay Area, we’re incredibly lucky to have an amazing variety of options available. It’s easy (but not cheap) to wander into a market and come out with ingredients for a home meal that…

Billy and I were talking last week about why it is people who work so hard to get fit and lose weight often regain the weight. Sarah and I have talked about this as well – I’m especially interested in this topic because I’m halfway through the Commit to Fit program, and I hope to…

So before we get to the carrots – did you see that Diana Nyad completed her incredible swim from Cuba to Florida? I guess I can’t complain about being too old to chase my son around a playground, huh? In other news, my son turned one this month. The cliche people always tell you about…

So almost exactly a year ago, I looked like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/judith/8292786603/ A lot of that weight came off very quickly four days after that photo was taken (mostly in the belly area!), but there was definitely plenty left as I started Commit to Fit seven months later. We’re now about five months in, and I…

Ok, so first you have to go read this comic at The Oatmeal. Really, go read it. Then come back… I have a Blerch, too. I’m guessing many, if not most of us do. And Blerchfighting is hard. Kind of absurdly hard. And unlike Matthew, who writes The Oatmeal, I haven’t found that running or…

I’m 42. Many of my friends are roughly the same age, and we’re all starting to notice that we no longer have the bodies we had in our 20s and 30s. This plays out in small ways: we can’t stay out all night anymore, or drink as much as we once did, and in large…
