So it's been awhile since I blogged. I didn't fall off the wagon...just got caught up in other stuff and didn't really feel like blogging.
I stayed off of dairy for the month of January, aside from a few days "off." I lost over 5 pounds as ... Read more
No Dairy/No Spending Days 15 & 16
The past couple days I've been focusing on using what I already have in the kitchen, instead of searching for new recipes. That has worked out well for me, as I'll think to myself that I will just go run to the grocery store and grab a couple it... Read more
No Dairy/No Spending Day 14
Why does it feel like at least six? :-)
Yesterday I was proud of myself for going for a run, even though my running buddy decided to go at another time. It felt good to know that just because we cancelled our run didn't me... Read more
No Dairy/No Spending Day 13
Day 13 brought several temptations that I was able to resist.
I worked in the morning, and being at work amongst the coffee, the yummy baked (dairy-filled) goods, and the savory sandwiches and pretzels....that can be hard to not want! Espe... Read more
No Dairy/No Spending Day 12
Nothing too exciting to report, other than the usual lack of motivation phase that comes after I do really well for a week or so. I'm already resenting tracking and yesterday I didn't. Because "I just don't wanna." I felt whiney. I don't like it... Read more
No Dairy/No Spending Day 11
Derek gets back today after being gone for a week, so I decided to make some cupcakes for his arrival. I worked until 10:30pm and then came home and made the cupcakes! They are vegan strawberry cupcakes with buttercream frosting, from the Skinn... Read more
No Dairy/No Spending, Days 9 & 10
It was bound to happen that I would miss a day of blogging. In my defense, I think I have a pretty good excuse....sorta....
It snowed alllll day on Thursday and overnight into Friday. We finally got some significant snow!! Which I've been ... Read more
No Dairy/No Spending, Day 8
I'm going to combine these blogs instead of doing 2 separate...they end up being related anyways....
I decided to try 2 dairy free recipes today, one I'd done before and one new.
The usually yummy butternut squash soup that I made tast... Read more
No Spending, Day 7
No spending happened today! Part of that is because I didn't leave my house other than to go for a run, and to drop Derek off somewhere...
But I was thinking again about something I touched on in an earlier blog. How easy it is for me to j... Read more
No Dairy, Day 7
Wow! It's been one whole week of no dairy. What have I learned? Well, dairy products are in a TON of stuff, and "disguised" as other things, example Whey. So I'm sure I've probably accidentally eaten dairy at some point besides the smoothie in... Read more
No Spending, Day 6
I realllly wanted to spend money today. I have no idea why! I worked allll day, and wanted to buy everything in sight. Which I couldn't since it all has dairy anyways, but when it was quiet I would sit and think about coffee drinks I could make... Read more
No Dairy, Day 6
Day 6 was the first day I felt grumpy about not being able to eat the food I wanted. I worked 7:30-4 at B/N and EVERYTHING looked sooo good, and I couldn't eat any of it.
Since I ate breakfast so early at home (oatmeal w/almond milk and a... Read more
No Spending, Day 5
Again, nothing too exciting to report...although today was a day that I truly did not spend ANYTHING. I did not buy any food at work (brought my own lunch), even if I do always use a gift card. I also did not have any bills and such to pay....so... Read more
No Dairy, Day 5
Nothing too exciting to report from Day 5, other than I'm still amazed how much I don't miss dairy yet. Derek had ordered a pizza and it was on the counter when I got home from work. I looked at it, smelled it, then cooked myself something else... Read more
No Spending, Day 4
Nothing exciting to write...stayed within my rules and bought a small snack pack of vegan cookies for about $1 using my B&N gift card...snack last night during a very busy shift!... Read more
