Peas, please

Thursday, June 09, 2011      1 comments

I have talked before about my garden, but I must reiterate: I LOVE MY GARDEN. Today, as a snack, I brought in a little pint container of sugar snap peas that my garden has been producing in abundance. These are peas that can be eaten pod ... Read more

Not Without My Cheese

Wednesday, June 08, 2011      3 comments

I think that my switch to vegetarianism is slowly making me develop a lactose intolerance. It was not intentional for me to stop consuming dairy products; it just sort of happened. I used to be a milk fiend, drinking tons of it when I was ... Read more

Back me up on this

Tuesday, June 07, 2011      1 comments

Wouldn't it be great to be able to log into Spark every day and have the first thing you see at the top of your page be a list of the REASONS why you want to lose weight? I think that it'd be great to have a daily reminder of the very speci... Read more

Why so resistant..?

Monday, June 06, 2011      2 comments

I grudgingly changed my ticker to report a one-pound loss. Most people do this with great joy - but for some reason, I felt like I had to give myself permission to do it... like the scale had to read the same thing two weigh-ins in a row in ord... Read more

Trying again!

Thursday, June 02, 2011      0 comments

Well, let's see if we can have a better day today - shall we? Yesterday was crappy on a colossal scale. I've no wish to repeat it. *~*~*~* Cleaned nearly all of the downstairs yesterday, and it felt good... it was the only way I coul... Read more

Today's Plan

Wednesday, June 01, 2011      0 comments

1) Work. Because, you know. Bills. 2) Eat only the foods I planned. I usually don't have any trouble with this, but I really fell off the wagon yesterday as far as unplanned eating; really didn't do too badly, calorie-wise, but still -... Read more

Yes, my inner child is a 12-year-old boy.

Tuesday, May 31, 2011      0 comments

So I had to take Andrew in for his colonoscopy today. You might be wondering why a 28-year-old guy is getting a butt probe. Well... he's had some issues in the past, and he is getting them done in an abundance of caution. We did all t... Read more

Ground control to major TOM

Tuesday, May 24, 2011      1 comments

And I'm not talking about the song, either. Women know what TOM means. Men - just... go about your business. You don't want to hear about any of this. I guess I should have realized it would be a blockbuster when I had a meltdown... Read more

Bah

Monday, May 23, 2011      2 comments

Having a really rough day. I can't seem to wake up, despite two cups of coffee. My leg is THROBBING due to Klippel-Trenaunay issues... ugh, really need to get this looked at by an expert, but that's going to involve getting an out-of-n... Read more

PACKING

Friday, May 20, 2011      2 comments

You know what the benefits of packing the day's food is? 1) I know EXACTLY what the calorie counts are; 2) I can sit and log everything in my journal at once and not have to worry about it for the rest of the day; and 3) The te... Read more

Better Oats!

Thursday, May 19, 2011      0 comments

So it seems Quaker finally has some stiff competition in the oatmeal market. My hubby-to-be - who does a lot of our grocery shopping - bought us a whole pile of different varieties of oatmeal by a company named Better Oats. Having now ... Read more

GAH

Monday, May 16, 2011      0 comments

So I just typed a really good blog entry that accidentally had html in it (seriously, we can't use html to italicize something??), and I got an error message saying, "Sorry, no html allowed! Click here to go back." I clicked the link - and... Read more

Forks Over Knives

Friday, May 13, 2011      1 comments

Based on Roger Ebert's review (clicky --> rogerebert.suntimes.com/
apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=
/20110511/REVIEWS/110519995 ), I really want to see this. I already eat a mostly whole-food diet consisting mainly of legum... Read more

Little things jumping up at me

Wednesday, May 11, 2011      0 comments

Believe it or not, wonked back and all, I managed a workout last night. I did the Sweat 1-2 of the P90 series yesterday, modifying a lot of the exercises and focusing a lot on the ones I knew would help the back, especially the power yoga s... Read more

Owie.

Tuesday, May 10, 2011      2 comments

Managed to wonk up my back but good... maybe from all the yardwork over the weekend. Or maybe it's from when Hannah yanked me off my feet. Or maybe I slept funny. Or maybe... Doesn't matter, really. It just HURTS. This is going to thro... Read more
