6 Favourite Dinners Under 450 Calories

6 Easy Weeknight Dinners Under 400 Calories - Diary of a Formerly Fat Girl

Dinner can be the trickiest dinner to get right. Frequently, if it’s healthy and low-cal, it isn’t filling and satisfying (and vice-versa). We’re never working with as much time as we think we are, and it’s really easy to get an entree rut.  With that in mind, here are 6 of my go-to healthy, quick, […]

Tupperware for a Better Body

Molly Daley

 If you follow my blog regularly, you know I don’t mess around when it comes to Tupperware (and/or Tupperware-like devices). Not only does it keep your fridge organized (as you know, I love a good organized fridge), but it keeps your leftovers moist, your fruit fresh, and your veggies crisp. Beyond that, though, Tupperware is […]

Sweaty Work is Good Work

Molly Daley

Happy June!    Today is the second day of June (can you believe it?!), and for most of us that means sunny days and rising thermostats. Which means sweaty workouts. Lots of sweaty workouts. An entire glorious season of long, hard, sweaty workouts!  But the summer months shouldn’t be the only time you’re getting sweaty […]

Molly’s FitBits: Winter Work

56 days of commitment!

I feel like I’m beating a dead horse here, but it’s really darn cold. It keeps being really darn cold. Here in Ontario, it seems that whenever the temperature gets above about -15, we get enough blowing snow that you still wouldn’t dare go outside. Where it’s not slippery it’s slushy, and it’s not showing […]

Molly’s FitBit: Stretch Daily

Molly Daley

This inaugural FitBit deals with one of the less glamourous aspects of fitness: Stretching.  Often forgotten or skipped over because of a time crunch, a good thorough stretch has a way of slipping out of our fitness routines. “Oh, well, 30 seconds is long enough”, “Stretching doesn’t make a difference anyway”, or “It doesn’t burn […]

In-Season Lovin’

Molly Daley

The Summer and early Fall months offer plentiful, gorgeous, far-cheaper-and-better-and-more-local produce than most other times of the year. Starting with asparagus and rhubarb in the Spring and ending with cabbage and squash in the Fall, the fruits of the season are incredibly enjoyable. Take advantage of it! For example, in my part of the world, […]

I LOVE Tomato Season!!

This time of year is great for many things– parties, tans, swimming, vacations… …and tomatoes!! If you’re lucky enough to have a garden or pots of tomatoes, you probably started seeing the oh-so-promising red hints of ripening a few weeks ago, and are now enjoying a tomato bounty. This is my first year with a […]
