Gluten Free Granola on a Dime
Monday, July 11, 2011      6 comments

Well... $3.83 actually. After buying Gluten-Free granola this weekend while we were up in the mountains and then pricing it down here in Denver, I decided that as expensive as GF Oats are, SURELY I could make it myself for cheaper. And I did. ... Read more
Sad Day for Worms (and me!)
Monday, July 04, 2011      8 comments

I have been worm composting only since last September. I bought a few boxes from a bait shop (only about 1/8 of a pound) and have my ups and downs... I followed instructions on YouTube to set it up, then overfed them. Most died, but I saved en... Read more

So... when we took our road trip (down to "the farm") a few weeks ago, we checked out a couple of books on CD for the kids to listen to. One was called The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron (Newberry Award) and I have to say I didn't LOVE i... Read more
Broccoli for Breakfast
Thursday, June 09, 2011      4 comments

I planted broccoli in the garden again this year. It has BEAUTIFUL leaves but only the smallest florets. Last year I left them on the plant hoping they'd get bigger. THey didn't - the flowers just started to bloom. We ate them anyway, but th... Read more
Milk is Out!
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      4 comments

If you remember, I decided to take it out completely. For a few months. Well - I broke down again (it's SO much harder than giving up anything else!!!) and yesterday had a little bit of parmesan cheese on my pasta. And then a bite of a cookie... Read more
First Day Back...
Sunday, May 22, 2011      1 comments

Yesterday, officially, was my first day of summer vacation! Yeah! I didn't officially think about exercise or eating right (although since there's hardly anything I can eat anymore, I didn't eat badly - just not as much produce as I should hav... Read more
What in the World Can I Eat???
Saturday, May 21, 2011      4 comments

Okay - I haven't really been active on Spark (other than reading posts and occasionally contributing/asking) for a LONG time. I've been struggling with what to eat so I don't get sick. I think I've almost figured it out - but it's really a str... Read more

Sick Day #4
Friday, January 28, 2011      0 comments

Wow... I can sure tell in 6 months by looking at my blogs that I had a sick week. I'm on day 4, feeling good enough to be up doing stuff but still that pesky spot in my throat. I'm supposed to give it 'til Monday with minimal talking and if it... Read more
Feeling Better - but now a dilema....
Thursday, January 27, 2011      4 comments

I am, I must say, MUCH better than yesterday at this time. My throat still hurts but not nearly as much. The headache is down to a 2-advil level (I was at 4 every 4 hours) and, although it hurts, I can eat some very soft foods without tearing ... Read more
Sicker than Sick but Planning Anyway
Wednesday, January 26, 2011      3 comments

So... January has pretty much sucked in the health arena. The first week I came down with some chest cold/larangitis/cough that lasted 2 weeks (except the cough, which held on). Then I either ate something with gluten or just plain picked up a... Read more

I decided to enter in the Biggest Loser contest for the Working Out at Home team. There's incentive. I rode bikes with the family (check) I ate clean for TWO days (check) I didn't plan ahead, though. Back to school/work tomorrow..... Read more
How many times to "start over"?
Saturday, August 28, 2010      0 comments

This must be my 8th or 10th time to get started again... why could I lose 40 pounds 2 years ago and keep on it like nothin' doin' and yet now I can't stay with a plan more than 1/2 a day??? I'm reflecting on what I did then and trying to figure... Read more
