A Rant: Learn to Cook!

Wednesday, March 02, 2011      11 comments

Today's blog is going to be a bit of a rant. There's couple of phrases that has been raising my shackles lately. They are the number of people who say, "I don't have time to cook" or, "It's too expensive to cook at home." Hogwash. Bul... Read more

The End of Overeating Review

Monday, February 28, 2011      9 comments

I am a compulsive overeater. It's not an eating disorder like anorexia or bulimia. It's more similar to a drug addiction like cocaine. I have come a long way in being able to manage it. I've lost 30 lbs and have maintained it pretty stab... Read more

Thursday, February 10, 2011      1 comments

I'm finding the hour of exercise hard to do. If I would just get up earlier in the morning, it would be fine. So, tomorrow, I quit rolling around bed half snoozing and get to the gym. The tight muscle in my leg is loosening up. Not quite... Read more

An Imaginary Trip Back in Time

Sunday, February 06, 2011      8 comments

Yesterday, I carried bags of groceries up 3 flights of stairs to my apartment, two trips. Each bag weighed about 15lbs each. I felt like an 'iron woman' because little ole me was hauling big bags of groceries up 3 flights of stairs without get... Read more

Day 4: February Personal Challenge

Friday, February 04, 2011      2 comments

Today is my day off. It should be the perfect time for me to get 60 minutes of exercise, and have breakfast at an less rushed pace than a work day. Except I'd rather just surf the net, watch tv, or play games. Last night, I learned to... Read more

Day 1: February Personal Challenge

Tuesday, February 01, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday I wrote about how I was changing my diet and exercise goals for February. I did research on 'flexitarianism', and it is a very broad term. There isn't a single meaning. Some people only eat meat once a week. Some more occasio... Read more

I'm starting to get more focus on what I want to accomplish. For the month of February, I've decided to do the following. It's a short month, so if it doesn't work out, I'm not committed for too long! 1) Eat 'vegetarian' until 6PM. While... Read more
