The dress is gone; the shorts will stay & I might end up blacklisted for returning things, but ultimately that could be a good thing! I checked up on my gold sandals at Marshalls & added another pair of shoes I'm lusting after - but did not buy.... Read more
We'll get to the title a little later. Ok, I thought I loved the dress in the store. And I really love the back of it -- but who walks into a room backwards? The photos I took yesterday are really bad -- no flash on my cell phone & we haven't ha... Read more
You know the week - you ate really well, but you were just so darned hungry - physically, not emotionally - that you ate more than you planned to. Significantly more. Maybe there were 1 or 2 BLTs in there. Ok, being totally honest, more than jus... Read more
Now that my knee is almost back to normal - a week & a half later! - I've done some more sleuthing on the matter. It was never so painful tha I felt the need to see a doctor, assuming, of course, that I had one, so I have to try to figure it out... Read more
No, I haven't found it. Seems like that last piece always eludes me.
When I hurt my knee, I turned my attention to my nutrition. I've been eating really well for the most part. Altho my knee is much better, it's still not 100% when I do som... Read more
Probably gonna ramble here - you've been warned!
Yesterday was a semi-productive day. Productive in the food prep department. Not so much in the exercise department.
I made chocolatecoveredkatie.co m/2011/03/15/cookie-dough-... Read more
That's what discovering a healthy lifestyle is in a nutshell.
It's all about rediscovering yourself, because somewhere along the way you probably lost yourself. About what you like, what you don't like, what you can & cannot be around & so ... Read more
Guys, fair warning: this may be TMI for you.
So TOM ended Monday, as it was supposed, or so I thought. Then there was several days of spotting, which isn't extremely unusual, just a little unusual . . . mostly because now, over a week since... Read more
My cats are essentially indoors cats, but they do have what is basically a covered dog run to go out into. And they are very good hunters.
I'm doing some yoga this morning when Gizmo comes in & nonchalantly starts going up the stairs - with... Read more
I thought I was a mindful eater. I don't read, watch tv, or even listen to music while eating. I sit down & eat off of real plates.
But then I realized one day that my mind is usually going a million miles while I eat . . . writing blogs i... Read more
We've all heard that standard advice: don't eat after ____pm, cause your metabolism slows down & it will just get stored as fat. Nighttime eating isn't my problem, so I've always pretty much ignored it. Not to mention the fact that it's pretty r... Read more
GSFs = grocery store finds. No, I still haven't tried the amy's light & leans . . . really, I just never eat frozen meals anymore (I also don't work at the moment). But bean & cheese enchilada? I will, at some point.
I also found Probar's H... Read more
Life is a series of peaks & valleys, and that allows you to learn about yourself.
Yesterday's race was definitely not my best. It's the first race where I was truly hindered by my body - one of my slowest races to date no doubt because of t... Read more
It was just about a year ago that I ran my very first, very slow 5k, after a lifetime of non-running. I've been active for probably the last 20 yrs, but didn't become a runner til a couple of years ago.
My goal last year was to run a 5k; th... Read more
The holistic vet suggested putting a warm teabag on the lump on Gizmo's tail several times a day. I don't think she thought I'd be able to do it - but he's a different cat with me than he is at the vets & he LOVES the extra attention - from me, ... Read more
