I have been so excited that Weight Watchers has given me the opportunity to try their 360 program for three months free. It has been such an easy program to follow. It is awesome that Weight Watchers has made some really great changes to their program to incorporate healthy eating more intrinsically. One of my favorite things is the ability to find simple and easy recipes within minutes, using their phone apps. I love that at the drop of a hat, I can go from, “What am I going to make for dinner?” to “Ohhhhh, ahhhhh, THAT looks good!” while standing in the middle of the grocery store and pushing my empty grocery cart.

I have been asked by quite a few people recently, how I keep my daughter’s lunches nutritious and convenient, without resorting to processed and packaged foods. I have to admit, I was pretty stumped when I first started preparing my daughter’s school lunches. There certainly was a learning curve and it took me nearly two years to get it down to a science.
I have been a stay-at-home mom since the summer before my daughter was born. Mr. Bear and I talked extensively before Allie was eating solid foods that we wanted to give her a great start with her eating habits. When Allie was a year old, I made her baby food from scratch. We worked very diligently to limit or avoid processed foods altogether. I have had to teach myself about nutrition and health in my adult years, by reading anything I could get my hands on. Mr. Bear taught me a lot about creating balanced meals. It was imperative to me that Allie was given the tools to make healthy choices later in life, by hopefully not creating bad habits in the first place—the way I had in my younger years.
Okay, so the title is
a little very misleading. I have to admit, nonetheless, I did have a date workout session with one of the stars on Baywatch, Jeremy Jackson (a.k.a. Hobie Buchannon—Hobie is all grown up!). Well, me and ten or so of my blogging friends worked out, that is. Jeremy Jackson kicked our butts with an hour long boot camp class.
There were two things I learned at the boot camp class:
1. Jeremy Jackson is very easy on the eyes and is a super nice guy.
2. He has been studying medieval torture because my body ached for three days after.
3. Working out with awesome women and a hot fitness instructor is something I could totally get used.
—Okay, three things I learned.
The boot camp class was a total blast. The fabulous DJ Pickel kept us motivated with an awesome mix of music. There was two pregnant women there that were whooping butt on everyone else. Bad asses, the both of them. I laughed. I huffed. I puffed. I learned how to do a real push-up. I hung out with awesome women. I worked up an appetite.
The event was put together by my friend Angela, one of the co-founders of San Diego Mom’s Night Out. It was great to get together with other moms and get our sweat on. After our butt-kicking, the good people from Fitzee Foods prepared their wholesome and delicious meals and made us fresh juice from the juicer. All of us girls got to chit-chat and enjoy some healthy food and beverage. LOVE LOVE LOVE the mom’s night out!
I had no idea that Fitzee Foods existed before this. They have so many fabulous offerings, including FREE fitness classes and various events on different days. They have professionals to help with your nutritional questions. What I love is that FITzee Foods makes and prepares meals daily from local, organic and all natural products. Right up my alley.
Look Better Naked gave each of us $120 gift card to be used for their fitness and detox/health services. I am having a difficult time deciding what services I want to spend my gift card on. I am leaning toward the detoxification services.
I grabbed a lasagna and the chicken enchiladas to take home to share with Mr. Bear and Allie. They both enjoyed a little of both meals. Delicious!
