Great New Recipe
So this morning I woke up with the same migraine as I had last night. Well, almost the same--the intensity had gone up some with the mixed blessing of having my eight year old son in bed with us unexpectedly. I've been rather moseying through my... Read more
Stress and Sleep--Need to Be Mindful
This week has been a crazy week. If you don't know already, I work full time and I am also a seminary student. I am currently taking two classes in addition to my full-time work and the schedule feels like a break-neck pace. I barely have time t... Read more
Test failed, moving on
So last night we had homemade Hawaiian pizza for dinner. I forgot to cut the pizza sauce with carrot soup and used pillsbury pizza crust. Fail! So, maybe sometime down the road I'll test again with a tomato-free marinara I found and cauliflower... Read more
Bananas and masala sauce
So yesterday's menu was a bit iffy tbh. The jarred masala sauce I use naturally has tomatoes in it, so I wasn't sure. I couldn't remember if I'd ever formally tested bananas, either. But I lost almost a pound last night, so both passed! I do hav... Read more
So yesterday I tested myself on quinoa. I've already had it a few days, but always with another unknown quantity (can you say church potluck weekend?) that skewed the test. So yesterday I made sure that everything else was already tested. I lost... Read more
Earth week menu
I have been of SP for too long due to serious knee pain. No excuse, though. I should have still been more mindful. In celebration of Earth week, I am planning a week of eating home-cooked meals every day. Make dinner each night at home and take ... Read more
So much for normal
No normal week after all last week. Just as I was ready to start the Plan again, I got sick. Stomach bug for two days, congestion continuing with exhaustion. My doc is putting me on another antibiotic starting today, so maybe that will help with... Read more
No more snow, no more excuses?
What a week last week was! Tons of snow, ice, kids out of school, workplace being open, then closed. Thankfully we never lost power. But I am hoping for a more normal week this week. I really want to restart the Plan, but need a normal week to d... Read more
Snow, ice, go away!
Living in North Carolina, in the southern half of the United States, means that I am not accustomed to a lot of snow. Every now and again we're known to get a big storm. Back in 2000 we got 22 inches of snow in one day! Okay, we can slow down lo... Read more
Plan for today
So the doc has diagnosed me with an infection. It was a sinus infection, but started spreading. I'm on antibiotics now, but they'll take time to really make a difference. Meantime, I'm exhausted. (she mentioned that this is probably due to the i... Read more
I did it!
It's hard to believe that I managed to make dinner last night. I was so tired after work that all I wanted was to crash on the couch and sleep. But I didn't. I rested a few minutes, had a good healthy snack, then got to work on dinner. I pulled ... Read more
This has been a hard week so far. I have a big assignment due in my class on Sunday and I'm fighting that urge to obsess about it. I know I can do it. I've begun the work toward doing it. But it stays on my mind. Meantime, I'm totally exhausted.... Read more
Don't you just love it when you have just finished all your meal planning for the week and you're all ready to go? You have your groceries, your cooking plan, even your cleaning plan! Then someone calls with a sudden change in plans.
That ... Read more
Long weekends are tough!
We just had a four day weekend with the kids. Or I did, anyway. They had two days off of school this week and a late start this morning. With my school assignment bearing down on me, I got easily sidetracked from planning. I did well for the fir... Read more
So I had another loss last night. I enjoyed have a few "rest days" on The Plan. It's nice to have that ready to go. Today I am testing brisket. I was rereading part of the book last night and she emphasizes that we DO need to be testing. Rest to... Read more
