Great New Recipe

Wednesday, November 12, 2014      1 comments

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

Friday, May 02, 2014      4 comments

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

Thursday, April 24, 2014      5 comments

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

Wednesday, April 23, 2014      2 comments

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

Passed Quinoa!

Tuesday, April 22, 2014      6 comments

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

Monday, April 21, 2014      6 comments

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

Tuesday, February 25, 2014      7 comments

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?

Monday, February 17, 2014      3 comments

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!

Tuesday, February 11, 2014      3 comments

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

Friday, February 07, 2014      1 comments

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!

Thursday, February 06, 2014      3 comments

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

tough week

Wednesday, February 05, 2014      4 comments

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!

Wednesday, January 22, 2014      0 comments

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

More planning

Friday, January 17, 2014      2 comments

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
