This blog had the potential to go two ways:
I was going to write my "Ode to Sweets", posting pictures of all of the junk food (cupcakes, milkshakes, cookies) I was cramming in as an attempt to up my calories before my new dietitian showed m... Read more
Nom, Nom, Nom...
After being overwhelmed with schoolwork (& therefore being almost completely absent from Spark) for the last week, I am officially on Spring Break; however, with three lab reports to write, two chapters to read, a review and two study sessions t... Read more
Just Another Food Blog
Okay, okay... I admit it. You all were right.
I didn't wake up a MILLION pounds heavier yesterday; in fact, I didn't even wake up one pound heavier. I made it through "the great CheeseCake debacle of 2011" completely and utterly unharmed. ... Read more
My Battle with the Cheesecake
Two Words: Cheesecake Factory.
I have been TERRIFIED of this restaurant, known for their ridiculously large portions and calorie dense desserts, for years; however, my roommate and her boyfriend invited me out to dinner tonight, and low and... Read more
Told Ya So :)
Have you ever found that being told that you can't do something gives you all the motivation in the world to actually DO it?
Well, it seems that is the way things work for me.
After basically being called a failure by a counselor yesterda... Read more
Don't Tell Me I'm Not Trying!
Somehow, in this moment, I have found peace.
HOWEVER, had you been around me a mere two hours ago, you would've observed a very different Kalyn.
I am not an emotional person. I pride myself on being able to keep my cool and usually pe... Read more
March... Off to a Kinda Rocky Start
Well, happy March 1st, Spark Friends!
I'm kind of torn on how "successful" I'd call my first day of this new month.
I had an 8:00 am doctor's appointment today... Since doctors are notoriously known for keeping people waiting, I figure... Read more
Oscar Who? Let's Eat!
Tonight's the Oscar's, and I'm probably one of the very few people not watching it. I'm not a big Academy Award's fan (Red Carpet, yes... Award Show, ehhh, kinda lame in my opinion), and I could DESPERATELY use a break from my school work, so I... Read more
I have a new obsession.
After a grocery run the other day, I realized my kitchen cabinets needed an overhaul. I was removing everything, reordering, organizing, when suddenly something caught my eye. Shoved (& obviously forgotten) in the ... Read more
Happy National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, Y'all!
Ahhh, February: For being the shortest month, it's crammed full of occassions: Valentine's Day, President's Day, Black History Month... and of course, National Eating Disorder Awareness Week-- which just so happens to be this week.

Variety is the Spice of Life
Ok, so this is a long one. Take what you want & leave the rest :)
I've been working really hard to incorporate new foods and recipes into my diet. I think this is going to result in a weight gain for me (YAY!) and finally start to kick my... Read more
New Recipes Again!
For breakfast today I had a special "sweet treat":
*1/2 cup Silk Light Vanilla Soy Milk
*1/2 cup Golden Grahams (or other sweet cereal)
*1/2 of a medium banana, sliced
*1 small apple (I used Golden Delicious), cho... Read more
Not My Typical Blog Entry. Even Better :)
Had a really great day today that I just wanted to share:
Tonight, my roommate somehow convinced me to break my habit of staying in on Friday nights to study, and how glad I am for it! We had a fabulous evening. A few months ago, a new mo... Read more
Eyes Open, Tummy Full!
Warning: I am about to get my "brag" on!
Today has been the BEST day! I can't explain why, but for some reason, today I was able to see myself for what I really am- incredibly underweight and unhealthy (Ok, let me clarify... this was not t... Read more
How am I not sick of ground turkey? After consistently eating it daily in an attempt to finish of the turkey meatloaf I made this past weekend, I had the opportunity at work tonight (I waitress part-time) to have anything on the menu prepared f... Read more
