"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see." - Henry David Thoreau
I'm big on quotes - always have been always will be. As long as I can remember, starting in middle school at least, I have collected words of wisdom to draw on during any manner of situation happy, sad, excited, depressed. You name it, I've rese... Read more
First Day Back - not tooooo bad :)
Well, it wasn't the "best" day ever in the history of SP, but it wasn't terrible. I ended up a couple hundred calories under goal but that's because I got up late and missed breakfast before having a light lunch. Add to that a 4.7 mile fast walk... Read more
Back from - wherever I was!
Such simple words, but such powerfully true words. What we do. Or, perhaps more accurately, what we don't do. We don't stay comm... 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

yesterday went pretty well. I managed to eat 100% Paleo all day, on my first day. Go me!
I noticed that when I ate, no matter how much was on my plate or in my bowl, I never felt over-full. Often when I eat "normal", especial... Read more
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
What you see is what you get/It's all relative
Been thinking about this a bit lately. Ever notice how your standard of what is "normal" or "typical" is greatly influenced by the people with whom you associate? This is nothing new, but it's become clear to me in new ways over the past year an... Read more
