I am trying to come up with a reward system. It is really hard... I used to reward myself for every 5 pounds lost, but now, if I do that I will go broke. So, I am trying to come up with something...
I tried quinoa for the first time tonig... Read more
In Need of a Hobby
I have decided that I need some hobbies in addition to my volunteer work at the Library. I need something to take up the time I used to spend on eating. I used to plan my entire day around food, and now I need something to fill those spaces. I a... Read more
Pretty bummed out...
This is the first week since I have had surgery that I have not lost a significant amount of weight. I went from 220.8 to 220.6. I am wondering what is going on? Or if nothing is really going on, and it is just normal?
I am taking a close l... Read more
Wonderful Rainy Sunday (photos)
Today turned out to be a productive day. After a yummy breakfast of an egg, 1/2 piece of whole wheat toast and 1/4 cup of mango (sorry, I didn't take a picture of it) I went to the gym. I did 60 mins of cardio. 30 of it I spent on the bike worki... Read more
My new herb garden (photos)
I got a new mini herb garden at Lowe's tonight. I really hope it grows! I am a little worried because I can't keep it anywhere in direct sunlight... there really isn't anywhere in my house that gets it, and I am not sure about outside... I guess... Read more
Orange Dream Desert (photo and recipe included)
I am going to my grandmother's for a cook out tomorrow, and I volunteered to make a desert to bring along. Obviously, my choices for deserts are very limited, so I wanted to make something that everyone (including myself) can enjoy
The Kid w/ the Weird Lunch (photos included)
Remember when you were in school, and there was always that one kid who brought a "weird" lunch? Either their parents were old hippies, or in my case, since I lived in middle of nowhere Pennsylvania, they were old farmers.
There was one gir... Read more
Today's Doctor's appointment
Today I had my 6 week follow up with my surgeon. I actually didn't meet with him, but I met with his PA, Mike. He is really nice, and I like him a lot. He advanced me to the final stage of my diet. He also noted that I am above the curve in weig... Read more
A trip to the miracle doctor...
I go to see my Chiropractor at 12:30 today. I am so excited! My back has been in a world of pain since surgery. I have a rib out, and depending on how I am sitting, it hurts to breathe. Dr. Goodbody (not his real name, but he makes your body fee... Read more

I was awake before 6am today. I needed to get up by 7, but I guess I was just done sleeping. I had an appointment with my OBGYN today to get my birth control implant. It didn't hurt like I thought it would, but my arm is bruised like you wouldn'... Read more
I'm a gunna go broke!
So, while I have posted awesome food blogs and such, I haven't got much of a chance to blog about other things. Most of this is due to laziness.
I am down now to 224 pounds! I am very excited about this. I started thinking about things I w... Read more

Today didn't start out so well. First, I woke up late. I realize that I don't get home until almost 6am, but I didn't want to sleep as late as I did. I didn't get up until 1.
That put me behind. I forgot I had to make a few things to bring... Read more
