IMG_7254B’Dazzle is so handsome and is proudly wearing his first genuine leather men’s coat today!  My baby is growing up!

Saturday this fierce little dude held it down in his position as nose-guard for our township’s Junior Varsity Football Team!  He is lean, well-defined, weighs 86 pounds, and 4’9″ inches tall… And strong as a bull. It takes two and sometimes three football players on the defenders offensive line to stop him.  Saturday’s game was a good one, but his team, the Eagles came out on top with a win of 14-12.  Yay!!!

Who says size matter?  Haha! Athleticism is much to do about heart, will, determination, dedication, and drive….  He’s got all that and then some!

Did I mention that he eats all kinds of veggies, including the one’s most kids love to hate like spinach, zucchini, and asparagus?  When he’s in the kitchen with me, raw onions, garlic, and colored peppers are his favorite snacks.  Is his unusual strength genetics?  I don’t know, but I know that good nutrition in kids matter too.  The earlier you start most kids on veggies, the greater the chances they will eat more of them.

Happy Monday; I hope it was a good one!  🙂



About 45 minutes ago, I completed a shoulder workout.

I pushed myself at the gym, but the nudging hasn’t stopped. How’s that?

Post workout eating is just as important as the weight training.

I am not hungry!

But I still have to choke these oats and eggs down. Ugh!


Plain Jane hard-boiled eggs. I usually sprinkle my eggs with freshly ground black pepper, but this morning I forgot.


Organic steel oats (prepared in advance in a crock pot), with skinless apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, flax-seed, chia seeds, water and almond milk. Before reheating, I added one banana, more cinnamon, and almond milk. Filling and DELISH!

Some days, eating is more demanding than the real workout. Surprise! Surprise!

Have a great day!
