My dad came to visit this weekend. It was great for him to finally be able to meet Max and to get to spend some quality time with him. We went to the casino a few times (playing with his money is so much better than my own) and last night he i... Read more
I've been on a pretty good streak lately! Today I'm on target again with every single thing, except I'm over by fiber. But I think it's better to be over than under, as long as it doesn't turn into a habit :) I'm on in sodium today, too! For th... Read more
I am into a smaller pant size! I was really frustrated that I was back into my fat pants after being pregnant, and I had gone to the thrift store to get some pants that are in between sizes 8 (where I was) and 18 (where I am). Unfortunately, I ... Read more
I had the best intentions tonight of making the fried rice recipe featured in the SparkPeople emails. Sounded delish - brown rice, veggies, and I was going to add a bit of chicken for some protein.
Unfortunately, either my rice cooker su... Read more
I've had two days in a row where I've met every single one of my goals! Even fiber and sodium!! That makes me feel really good. I've even managed to squeeze in exercise every day this week - which is good because it's been harder now that I'm ... Read more
I'm feeling a little better today. I'm still up, and I don't know why, but I'm sticking with it.
I had my post-baby doctor's appointment today, and the first thing my doctor said when she saw me was, "Oh my you look so skinny!" Even if it ... Read more
I gained 1.2 this week! I don't really know how that's possible. I exercised every day this week - and was generally much more active than normal. My eating was probably better this week than in general. My sodium was in check almost every sin... Read more
Yesterday was an AWESOME food day! I hit right in the middle of all of my goals - even fiber! Having Amethyst here has just been awesome. She's so inspiring, and I get some great food ideas from her. Having someone around who is conscious of the... Read more
I stumbled on this article today that pretty much sums up my feelings on eating healthy and wellness. This is the original link to the article: www.davesoucy.com/2009/0 6/stop-trying-to-eat-right/

Yesterday I didn't make it to my minimum calories. It kind of surprised me, actually - we had some friends in from out of town and went out for breakfast (which was freaking fantastic, by the way), and my breakfast alone was around 700 calories... Read more
I threw it away. The yummy hummingbird cake is in the garbage. I found myself last night after Max's 1am feeding picking at it with a fork. I put it on yesterday's calories, and it ended up being fine calorie-wise, but that could have gotten d... Read more
Okay, so I looked up some recipes for lasagna and hummingbird cake online, and I don't think I did as badly as I originally thought I did. The cake probably wasn't 700 some calories - most of the recipes are saying that a regular slice is aroun... Read more
I COMPLETELY obliterated my calories for today. Truly, that's an understatement - there are no words for what happened with my calories today.
It started early on - I was just having a ridiculously hungry day today. I haven't been getting... Read more
My first experience with cream cheese came at a ripe young age, somewhere around 7 or so. My grandparents on my dad's side had just flown in to Madison, WI from Cleveland, and they always flew on those tiny planes that don't get pulled up to th... Read more
I haven't been doing any specific strength training, although today, my shoulders would beg to differ.
I'm counting baby as my strength exercises.
In order to be burped a lot of the time, he has to be lifted up and down by his armpits.... Read more
