The Cake is NOT for Eating... (photos)

Thursday, June 07, 2012      6 comments

My Boss' birthday is tomorrow, so we are having his party tonight at work. Lucky for me, we are not getting pizza (which is the usual protocol) but we are getting Subway. I don't think I will be having any, I have my own lunch I packed. Not a re... Read more

I am totally in love with this stuff. I found the recipe on Spark, and decided to give it a try. It was fantastic! Before I tried it, I ran it by my RD to get her approval. She thought it was an excellent idea and asked if she could share ... Read more

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

Tuesday, May 29, 2012      2 comments

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

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

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

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 Read more

The Kid w/ the Weird Lunch (photos included)

Thursday, May 24, 2012      7 comments

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 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

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!

Monday, May 14, 2012      1 comments

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
