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

"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

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

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

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
