Trying to determine if cravings last week were related to PMS, Protein Shakes, or both! Hmm... Guess I'll have to experiment this week with a protein shake for breakfast and see if I end up having cravings for the rest of the day... But not t... Read more

Should be called an Asian buffet because they also have kimchee, sushi, and Pad Thai! Best part is in the back of the restaurant they also have a flat top grill that they use as a Hibachi station. You chose your proteins/veggies (they also... Read more

As I've been losing weight, my lingerie sizes have changed - a few times... Got "measured and fitted" in a specialty shop this week and was stunned at the "correct" size. I've seen the shows touting the comfort of the "correct sized bra" a... Read more

Necessity is the mother of invention: I don't use packaged salad dressings. Most contain sugar and lots of other items I can not pronounce - which seems to fundamentally go against my "whole foods" and Paleo/Primal lifestyle. But I'm also... Read more

Exercise and food intake - both need to be in balance...
Thursday, May 31, 2012      4 comments

It was an excessive day for exercise, and while food choices were Paleo, quantities seem large looking back on things. Makes sense - the more you exercise, the hungrier you get. The best news is while weight has not been dropping as fa... Read more
