"I don't like vegetables"
My husband has always hated veggies. Always.
Since our daughter has started eating table food, though, I've been adding more and more fresh and frozen vegetables to our meals. To my surprise, it's been a rather painless process - my husband... Read more
Nom nom nom
OK, well Christmas did not go very well. I ate about every delicious thing I laid my eyes on. Oh well, back on the wagon today.
For lunch, I had a veggie burger. I just want to say that I was not really looking forward to eating it. It didn... Read more
To date, I have lost about 63 lbs from my highest pregnancy weight. I am 13 lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight, and my BMI right now is 21.6 - well within the healthy range.
Beyond that, I am wearing a pant size smaller than I was before I g... Read more
Before, Before and After
Laura will be 8 months old tomorrow, and I'll be turning 27. Where has the time gone? Babycakes popped her first tooth this week, and has started pulling up on everything. She's still not mastered the art of the traditional crawl, but she's very... Read more
My Experiment - A Kind Life
Wow, it's been a while. Really, since I've been taking a break from tracking food and weighing myself daily, I've gained a lot of peace. I think I've been even more active on SP, since I don't stress every time I log in about what I'm eating and... Read more
Whew! What a day!
Since we moved into our house, I've wanted a vegetable garden. By the time we moved in last spring, though, everything was pretty much established. This year, I decided to take back my back garden from the lilies and the weed... Read more
This week I realized
I have realized over the past week that I don't have a good relationship with food. I used to think that since I knew what to do to lose weight, I was good. But after being a member of SP for two and a half years, I'm right where I started. I co... Read more
No good very bad week
OK - I understand that nobody wants to listen to me whine, so I'm just going to put this all down here because I need to get it out. Hopefully this will be cathartic.
I got a flat tire last week. It was 26 degrees F and raining out. I could... Read more
Dinner Menu 3/6-3/12
I'm about to hit the grocery store with my new list, but I thought I'd write up my meal plan for the week so I don't forget it.
Meals by myself
Broiled Salmon w/couscous - This is so easy and so good! I buy the no-name salmon fillets, an... Read more
A four letter word that cheers me up
According to my husband, this word is Oreo. He bought me some last night in an attempt to cheer me up. I'll admit, I was a little terse with him when he called me last night. I had just finished at the gym and I was tired and hungry and wanted t... Read more
So good! I used fresh basil to make a pesto that I added to the pizza dough, which made it a little green, but oh so good. Then I added chopped tomatoes, garlic, more basil, mushroom, red peppers, broccoli, a little mozzarella and some parmesan.... Read more
Dinner this week
Each week, I decide on at least 6 meals that I'll make for dinner. I don't commit a meal to a specific night, so I can make what sounds good at the time. This way, though, I've always got a plan for something healthy after work, when my brain's ... Read more
What to do, what to do
On the one hand, I've wanted to start having children for years. I get a little crazy every month, wishing it would FINALLY be time for us to start our family. And I've always wanted to be done having babies by the time I was 30. I wanted my kid... Read more
Why I hate weekends
Usually, I spend the whole week looking forward to the weekend. I love sleeping in and taking time for myself to read and relax.
Without a schedule, though, my eating gets out of control! I admit, I have a munching problem. While I'm reading,... Read more
On pins and needles
My husband has not been able to find a job teaching, which is what he went to school for. It kills me, because I knows he's great at it, but right now where we live, there are simply not enough teaching jobs.
So, he's been working in sales ... Read more
