My body is frustrating me.
So since my youngest was born, weight is in different places. It's frustrating. But what's driving me really nuts, is that as I loose weight or gain muscle, clothes that once fit, suddenly don't. I mean, this should be a duh. But for some re... Read more
I need different foods
I ate decently today. Actually brought mine and my son's lunches with me, then stopped at the corner store to get some wheat thins to go with it (We need to go grocery shopping!) I went over my calories for the day, but I'm still hungry! I'm... Read more
What a screwy day
So today was supposed to be a productive day of cleaning. Until my poor son was up all night with nightmares. :( It started at 11:30. We all went to bed at 5am. It was horrible. No one slept well except in my 8 mo old. So we spent the day... Read more
I did measurements today
The results were not pretty. Last time I did them was Thanksgiving. And I have done "just this once"pretty much since. I am ashamed of myself. I know what to do. I just don't seem to be able to do it. I do well for a day or two, then I scre... Read more
It never fails. I go shopping for some article of clothing. I'm in a pretty good mood. Then I start looking. And looking. And looking. There is nothing but the plainest, ugliest, most BORING clothing available in my size. I'm shopping fo... Read more

My husband is home. Not sick, not worn out, and finally taking care of the boys. I am so glad to just rest. The rule between us is whoever ISN"T sick takes the kids. Or if we both are, the less sick one gets the kids. But can wake the other... Read more
I control what I eat.
How is it, at 34 years of age, this is a surprising statement? This is hard to wrap my head around, which is REALLY silly. Chris and I decided to begin a gluten-free diet. I was worried about what my inlaws would think. Ya know what? It doe... Read more
Gluten Free and epilepsy
Some of you may know that I have epilepsy. The meds only do so much to control it. So I've been doing some research on other ways to control it, and have come up with 2 ideas - the ketogenic diet, and living gluten-free. They both would be a ... Read more
It's been one of THOSE days. I woke up very close to a seizure.I have spent all day sleeping, taking meds, drinking soy (it helps). I've got over 1500 calories in DRINK ALONE. I HATE this; I can't do anything about it. It wasn't a lack of sl... Read more
Wow, I haven't written since the end of September? I knew it had been a while, but not THAT long!
So I am stuck at 230. I can't seem to move from there. And I know the problem. I've let myself get sucked in by the junk at the house. Most... Read more
I took my 2.5 year old to the park today. I made myself run. And climb. and jump. It was hard work!! But fun. Boy did I work up a sweat! No wonder kids are so skinny!! And they do have more energy. Probably because they use more. Its kind of l... Read more

Tracking when you're sick
How do you track food if you puke? Sorry for the gross question, but I had denny's today, and it didn't sit well. So I don't know what to do. Any ideas? Thankfully, I am feeling better now! Today is just not going as planned.
I'm a whale :_(
I am so mortified and humiliated. I was, at McDonald's in Navy Pier today. I know, not healthy, but it was fast and cheap. I went to sit at one of those tables where the damn chairs are bolted to the floor (who the hell invented those, anywa... Read more
