Paleo Days 10-14
Whoops, got a little behind. :)
Last week continued well and I think I found my groove in terms of not being hungry. Yeah! My solutions so far include either a large salad or soup for lunch, and a smoothie as an afternoon snack. So far so ... Read more

Paleo Day 3/30 (forgot to post yesterday)
Three days done. *Pat on the back*
Today I was almost out of fruit, and needed some veggie add-ons so I went to the grocery store during lunch to restock. I also found recipes for a Paleo mayo and bbq sauce. You see, I had a hankering for a... Read more
Paleo Day 2/30

Dipping my toes in Paleo; Day 1/30
Over the years my weight seems to consistently fluctuate by the same 10 pound gain and loss. I maintain one or the other for months at a time and lifestyle/diet factors are hit or miss in how they affect said changes. It's rather frustrating and... Read more

well, that was depressing...
To this day, I still don't understand how restaurants have the inane ability to take a healthy meal and somehow turn it into a fat and calorie bomb worthy of first prize at a junk food fest. It really boggles me. They should all have this on the... Read more

Just a quickie today but wanted to share something that I have noticed on SP...
You know how there is the general SP food reference in the nutrition tracker? Well, I have found that it is not always accurate. In fact, two times last week I ... Read more
Never replace "can't" with "won't"
Sometimes, we can't do something. Either we aren't strong enough, old enough, young enough, educated enough, rich enough, available enough, or healthy enough. Those can all be very legitimate reasons.
Sometimes, we won't do something. Eithe... Read more
