Man...I feel like a woman!
The immortal words of Shania Twain (LOL) keep popping into my head today, because I feel so NORMAL at the moment! My estrogen has been far too low for a year now, thanks to my body freaking out about losing so much weight and getting to have suc... Read more
True, it was only through the use of both estrogen and progesterone, but still - I got my first period in 11 months!!!!!!!!!
After losing it for so long due to the weight loss process - not eating enough, over-exercising, losing way too muc... Read more
OMG I love my Christmas food scale!
I finally got a food scale! Santa (Mom) got it for me. :)
And now I can accurately track my food without spending so much time stressing over estimating it! I'm telling you, I used to get packs of chicken breast, and try to figure out how m... Read more
New Year's Eve...not too shabby!
I spent it, as always, with my extended family. We had a great time! Played some games, ate a CRAPTON of good food.
Here's what I'm proud of:
~ I didn't have any of the pizza that was ordered, except for a couple bites of my husband's.... Read more
I don't really know how to deal with my dad's attitude about my new lifestyle
Lately, my dad has gotten really into cooking. He never was before. But he's started DVRing cooking shows, he wanted all kinds of kitchen stuff for Christmas...he's just so interested.
But he wants to make the kinds of meals he sees on TV ... Read more
More new produce!
Tried bitter melon and cactus fruit, most recently. Both were...different.
The bitter melon was DEFINITELY bitter. I made a SP recipe that used eggs and tomatoes, and it definitely needed LOTS of tomatoes to help cut the bitterness. But it ... Read more
Flushing out the water weight!
I've been eating as low sodium as I can the last two days, with tons of fresh fruits and veggies and tea and water....and after "gaining" 10 pounds between 12/23 and 12/27....I am now back down over 7 of those pounds. In two days.

LOL gained 10 pounds in 5 days???
I don't think so.
But that's what the scale says - I must have eaten some seriously high-sodium stuff, I guess. I actually did very well with eating away from home at and at a couple parties for several days...but starting on Christmas Day... Read more
That's it. :)
May everyone have a safe, happy, and healthy Christmas if that's what you're celebrating today, and may you have a safe, happy, and healthy Regular Old Tuesday if you don't celebrate anything in particular today!... Read more
Vacation going healthfully-ish so far...
I did very minimal cardio yesterday, which makes me a bit uncomfortable...but I suppose I could use a rest day. Even though Christmas Day will be a rest day. And probably the day after, too. Maybe.
Anyways, we were meeting a friend of my ... Read more
Ran a half marathon today
Hopefully that will offset some of the unhealthiness I will inevitably (but moderately!!!!) indulge in at all the upcoming festivities. :)... Read more
I didn't snack on the way home from the grocery store!
Too often, I go shopping right before dinner time. I know you're never supposed to shop for groceries when hungry, but I almost always end up hungry by the time I leave, and I generally do need food by that time because I tend to be too conserva... Read more
I swear, I sometimes forget how good fruit can be for dessert.
I had about 3/4 cup of a cream soup today while I was out and about. It came from one of my favorite local places to eat, and I've never tried their soups before and this one so... Read more
The plus side of running sans iPod
Well I still don't like running without music, but I found a silver lining the last two times I went running, when I was forced to do without my iPod. (Someone suggested using Pandora on a smartphone; my husband is the only one of us with a smar... Read more
I just joined freecycle.org and I am super excited!
A. I hate waste and love finding ways to reuse EVERYTHING.
B. I love free stuff!
There's a Christmas tree available in the area that I might be interested in. I'm also going to... Read more
