Andrew bought us vegan cookies last night, and although they were filled with this weird... "cream..." they were actually not bad. He also picked up Quorn meatballs last night, to which I added some sauce, garlic and fresh basil, and we h... Read more

I'm not much of a Twitter-er, but one thing that I do like about it is that it presents ideas in small, capsulized format. This means that you can find some GREAT quotes. The one I found today that inspired me: "Don't use other people... Read more

Had a very nutritious breakfast of Fiber One 80 Calories today - why is the serving size only 3/4 a cup? I measured out a cup and figured it to be 106 calories. Added a cup of almond milk to that, putting it to 166. I also have my day ver... Read more

I get to dance tonight. I GET TO DANCE TONIGHT! Yeah! We're practicing for a bellydance "flash mob." I think that's a very, very cool idea. :) And it makes me happy because the choreography is Egyptian/Turkish fusion - my f... Read more

Had NO plans during the holiday weekend... and grateful for it. After spending so much time schlepping around the northeastern portion of our country, I was ready to chill out and stay home for a while! I feel a little like my eating suffe... Read more

"Being fat is hard. Losing weight is hard. Maintaining is hard. Pick your hard." I like that. :) Not too much time to write an in-depth blog post today - but I'm feeling good and motivated. I'm all set up with my water and my heal... Read more

And I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation. We were up early nearly every morning, the earliest of which was Thursday because we had a 7:15 a.m. load-in time at the theatre (ugh) - and we had long days, starting with workshops at 8:00 a... Read more

What an amazingly gorgeous day we're having! Weather such as we're having - cool, sunny, no humidity - relaxes me sooo much. I can actually FEEL my blood pressure dropping. The bus was very empty on the way in to the office this morni... Read more

Sorry, no time for substantive blog entry today, so here's the bullet-point list: -I danced, literally, ALL WEEKEND -I ate, literally, NOTHING BUT JUNK. (not entirely true, but for me, even a little processed/junky food is enough to m... Read more

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
