So this holiday I met with my sisters. I have eight of them. I’ve left the nest so long ago, it is a shock when I return.
We ate at Friendly’s. For those not from the Midwest, Friendly’s is a “friendly” ice cream... Read more
I was going to add this to a discussion thread but it was too long winded:
I do abs daily and commonly do calves 2 or 3 days in a row. This week is an example of why.
I’m at a week long conference in Chicago. The West building at M... Read more
I ate barely any dessert over Thanksgiving weekend!! I LOVE my new lifestyle. The dessert treats were not even on my radar screen.

I’ve been working hard on a house to sell and it has been disrupting my workout time. However, I’m running more since I can’t get to the Y. DH has joined me—either walks or jogs—and there is less tv watching for him now!!
My son got a ... Read more
Every time I’ve made black rice so far, I’ve burnt the bottom and had to steel wool my pan. I wasted a lot of black rice. I rinse the rice then I soak it overnight. The first time I made it, I threw away the deep purple water from soaking. I... Read more
This comment I made at the end of my nutrition tracker today:
