Episode Four: The Acapella Episode



This week we had a tech setback. Greg’s computer, where all of our sound cues live, has decided to take a nap. We’re working on getting it sorted out, but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy our solution.

This week we discuss our weigh ins, but it’s not business as usual. Spoiler alert: Greg has reached his goal! It’s exciting, but it also means a shift in how he works the program, and he talks about how it’s affecting him mentally.

Amber Linde
Amber Linde is a talented improviser specializing in musical improv, an instructor at The Second City, a regular performer at iO. When not pursuing her art, she also works for such organizations as Deborah’s Place and Chicago House. Feel free to reach out to her on Facebook or Connect!

We also have our very first interview with the talented and hard-working Amber Linde. When she’s not teaching, performing, studying for her social work degree, or putting in hours actually doing social work, and planning her wedding, she’s somehow finding time to fit in exercise, and practicing the Weight Watchers program. If you ever struggle with priorities or time management, have a listen to how Amber handles it!


If you're on vacation, that doesn't mean you have to stop running. Disney's Castaway Cay 5K is a free race run on their private island! You even get a medal!

Episode Three – Guess What? It’s Yogurt



Welcome to our third episode of Watchin’ Weight. We asked you all a question on the sosh-medes; would you rather hear our thoughts on an Instant Pot, or on an air fryer?

Well today’s episode has the results, and our honest thoughts on the item of your choice! Have a listen, and let us know if you agree.

We also talk about our weigh ins, our thoughts on what it means for us to “Move more” and rate the recipe we teased last week – the Egg Roll Bowl! (spoiler: it’s delish!)

Here’s the rough draft of how we did it, recipe-wise. If the photos of the recipe aren’t working out for you, let us know. We’d love to get a more recipe-format-friendly site, but seem to have Widget and Plugins restrictions with this blubrry hosted site.

 

Looking for an Egg Roll, but don't want to go the deep fried route? Try this healthy alternative!

You can find Tab on Nike+ by searching for her name (Tabetha Wells), and let us know if you’re running any races in the Chicago area this spring/summer so we can keep each other motivated in training!

Have a great week!
