So my goal weight of 130 by March 9th is now impossible (unless I lose an arm or something). But you know what, I am super thankful in the progress I have made and the culinary explorations I made in February. This week was kind of a mess -... Read more

So today was a tough day for me because I forgot my oatmeal this morning and all I had to eat all morning was 1/2 grapefruit, 1/2 banana, and 1/2 c. of greek yogurt. Then I had a buffalo-chicken breast, lentil and spinach salad for lunch but I w... Read more

I have this friend who I love but she is always trying to sell me something. Most recently it is these ridiculous body wraps. Last it was these shakeology things. The dynamics of a friendship between a larger girl and a smaller girl are...... Read more

So yesterday was my birthday and Richie took me to dinner so I wouldn't have to cook. We had a coupon for an italian restaurant so we decided to go and splurge. The restaurant ended up being pretty shabby (like mom and pop breakfast joint with t... Read more

Sunday, January 27, 2013      0 comments

I've been reading a lot about milk lately. There are so many variables in what to look for in milk - it is quite confusing. I usually just drink almond milk because I like the taste, unlike the taste of skim, and you don't have to worry about ho... Read more

I completely failed the 15 lbs in 15 weeks challenge. Despite all the positive things I put around me, I suffered some fitness setbacks and fitness is really important to losing weight, obviously. So now I have a 13 week challenge, (which is thr... Read more
Week 4 !
Friday, March 18, 2011      0 comments

So the results have been a little dismal so far. It's great to actually lose weight - do not get me wrong. I've had a hard time getting time to exercise and I've never been great at losing weight without it. This week I did a short 2 mi run on S... Read more
