Wasting Food? (inspired by a Spark Poll)
I'm a sucker for a poll. So when I saw the poll about "Does your family waste food?" I had to take it.
Honestly, we don't waste food. At least, not anymore. We used to buy veggies and fruits that would languish and die in the bottom of the ... Read more
This weekend, I ate like crap. Total crap. Crap enough I refuse to even track it, not out of shame but because it was so much that I can't keep track of it all.
Did I drink water? No.
Did I lose weight? No.
Is anyone surprised by ... Read more
Not my week... or is it?
I woke up this morning with a terrible cold. My throat is so raw it feels like it's been attacked by a Brillo pad. I was actually starting to suffer through all this last night... when the hubby was tossing and turning so much that I couldn't sl... Read more
Do I dare and do I dare?
Ok ok, so I'm super bad about quoting T.S. Eliot. The man was brilliant though, I'm telling you!
So life is a little calmer this morning since I turned in my fiction last night and I'm suffering through the eternal wait between now and when... Read more
So, I sat down with my calendar to try to plan out my next eight weeks, since that's the duration of the biggest loser contest at sparkpeople. It encompasses Halloween, NaNoWriMo, Thanksgiving AND finals! At least the family progressive dinner i... Read more
Well shut my mouth!
Ok, so I totally don't even get this. I've been a wreck all week. Why? Because I knew I was going to have to cut back on the food budget. Meaning, I don't have the money to pay for top dollar whole grain foods or many forms of fresh produce. Fr... Read more
What sounds good today...
... is a nice warm mug of apple cider.
I think I need to get some and put it in the crockpot. Yep yep.
In other news, I'm in a bit of a jam. Money is seriously tight right now, and let's face it, the $.59 bread is more in our budget th... Read more
Today is a new day...
I am really working on maintaining a positive outlook right now. Things may be stressful, and someone may have let my hungry monster out of the barn, but the sun's out so it's all cool.
I found this quote on one of my teams this morning, an... Read more
I don't get it...
... I'm hungry. Honest to God, stomach growling, give me food NOW before I chew off your arm hungry. And I'll eat. And good God, I'm hungry 2 hours later.
What on earth is going on with me?
I'm scared I'm going to blow up like a blimp.... Read more
Rain rain, go away...
... and shoot, just never come back.
It's raining. Still. I'm so sick of rain. And I'm really unhappy that it's still going today. Because my ankle is in agonizing pain today, meaning I'm getting in no cardio at all today. If I could get in... Read more
"The sun will come out..."
... today actually. I woke up to what looked like a gloomy day with heavy clouds and a major drizzle. Now the sun is out and shining and it looks like we'll be roasting all day instead. Go figure.
Life is funny, really. Variable weather is ... Read more
I'm frustrated and just need to vent. I sorta got schnookered into teaching Kid's Church on Sundays. Now mind, Sundays are stressful enough because of meeting newspaper deadlines. Add to that trying to control anywhere from 6-40 kids on any give... Read more
Am I missing something?
I'm 10 days into SP and I just feel sort of lost and drifting. I've not lost a lick of weight yet. I can't seem to stop the noshing for some crazy reason.
Anyway, I keep trying to meet the fast break goals, but the cardio one isn't happenin... Read more
It's just starting?
I want the day to be over and it's just starting. I know I'm going to be overwhelmed all day with work work work and work. Thing is, I've also got to be interrupted by my son's friend spending the night, my FIL's birthday party that I have to go... Read more
Can I kick the Blahs?
Ok, so I'm a perfectionist. I have been as long as I can remember. So I'm already kicking myself that I'm not at all meeting one of my fast break goals... you know, the 10 minutes of cardio a day one? Yeah, that's not happening. And I know I'm j... Read more
