A Long Avoided Update
I have not updated my blog since the summer...sorry about that. But this update doesn't bring tidings of failure or falling off the wagon. Oh no! Actually, it has a whole lot of pretty cool news.
First of all, being aw... Read more
The Wannabe Vegetarian Becomes The Real Vegetarian
Last entry I said I was planning on going Vegetarian for a month. I am no longer doing that...now I am a Vegetarian full time. It occurred to me that I was being silly. I don't like meat, I don't believe in the mistreatment of animals on factory... Read more
31 Day Vegetarian: Meatless July
Today launched a month without meat, which I hope to make into a permanent lifestyle for myself. I don't think I will be a strict vegetarian, and I sure as hell don't plan on ever going vegan...I love cheese so much it would crush my soul.

"Healthy Food Costs Too Much!"
OK, let me start off by saying that I know in some places the cost of healthy food versus unhealthy food is horrible. I am speaking about my experience living in Salt Lake City, Utah, however...this is not the slums of Argentina where the cost o... Read more
Still Fighting The Fight and Biding My Time
I kind of made a realization the other day. My weight loss had slowed down considerably over the last few months, though I was still going down. It was a bit discouraging, and I wondered to myself, why couldn't I keep up my momentum from the sum... Read more
Don't Know What You've Got Till It's Gone
Earlier this week I hurt my back. How did I hurt it, you might ask? Was I doing some daring stunt? Did a masked man push me down a flight of stairs? Did a totally sweet back flip go awry? I would love it if I could use one of those excuses, beca... Read more
Doing It, But Not By The Numbers
So, after my royal freakout triggered bad thoughts, I decided it was time to really cool it on the tracking all together. That includes calories, workouts and the scale. I am still trying to eat well and normal portions, I am working out regular... Read more
CHRIST MAH KNEE!
This morning I woke up and my knee was KILLING me. Like, hurt enough to pull me out of sleep around 5 AM kind of hurt. Once I woke up properly, it wasn't as bad. It is swollen, sure, and tender. But I can walk on it without more than an ache, an... Read more
Your Shape 2012, Smoking and Food Boredom
I got my copy of Your Shape 2012 this afternoon. I just got done trying it out, and I like it. The whole concept of working up like a real game is nice, and a good way to keep my attention. I was stressed and kind of pissed off earlier, but I ma... Read more
The Perils of XBox
Oh, XBox...I can't keep my hands off of you. We finally (FINALLY!) bought a 360. My husband is a major PC gamer, but i have always preferred consoles. Never bothered to buy one because they are so expensive, so I haven't owned one since the orig... Read more
Quitting BLC #17
Unfortunately, I have to throw in the towel on this. Due to some issues from my past I have spoken about before (bulimia, in particular), I have learned to tell the signs of danger ahead. I have reached that point, with the calories I consume g... Read more
BLC #17 WUB, Or Mah Bucket!
This week the WUB is to create a bucket list of things they want to accomplish. I know a lot of people do far reaching things that they want to do eventually, but I prefer ... Read more
Ten Things I Like About Me...Continued!
Ugh, I have to write ten more things. LOL. I don't even know what to write, I think having ten things you like about yourself is a great amount. Twenty? Not so much. So I am going to try, and hopefully there are no repeats.
1) I am good wi... Read more
Changing Attitudes On Food, AKA Getting The Real Picture
Today my extended family (husband's side) met up at Golden Corral for my sister-in-law's birthday dinner. For those who don't know what it is, Golden Corral is one of those massive buffet all-you-can-eat deals here in the US. The food has a quic... Read more
Ten Things I Like About Me -- A Vanity WUB!
This week there is a part of the challenge where twice you have to blog about ten things you like about yourself. Now, I don't know if it is meant to be five things per blog, or a full ten both times. I am going to err on the side of caution and... Read more
