  • Holiday meals.

    12/17/2014 4:27:14 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    Christmas is really easy for me! I typically go to the movies and then out for Chinese food. Easy peasy, right! Also not so healthy. New Year's, however is a whole other story. A few years ago I wanted to celebrate the New Year with friends in a unique way. I discovered the story of Hopping Jo... Read more

  • Dreams of the Future

    12/15/2014 3:57:25 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    Having already lived abroad for a couple of months, this anticipation is familiar. I have been living in a bubble since May of 2013. I quit my job of 9 years at the end of May 2013. I then biked across the country with a charity group. It was both exhausting and exciting. I met some wonderful pe... Read more

  • Innovation!

    12/11/2014 3:46:20 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    Having lived above the noise nazi, I am terrified to do any sort of cardio inside my apartment. I hate the cold so on cold days I refuse to go out. Today it is rainy and windy. I want to go for a bike ride, but I think my safety would be compromised. So after doing some ab exercises I decided to... Read more

    One of my favorite aunts passed away Nov. 28th and was buried Dec. 2nd in Chicago Ill. and our family is dealing with the loss of this beautiful lady with the most wicked sense of humor and laughter that always put a giant smile on your face. She was making wise cracks to the very end. She ha... Read more

  • Feeling ill!

    12/8/2014 8:15:32 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    I have had some tummy issues this weekend. I took a laxative to see if that helped, but it has not. Everytime I eat it feels like a huge rock just got dropped on my stomach. I am afraid to eat much. I have been downing soda water a ton to see if the carbonation helps. It really doesn't. I am h... Read more

    I bought a new bedspread on Black Friday and I just love it! I got it at Bed, Bath & Beyond for only $30! It was on clearance and then I got a 20% discount, and free shipping! Good quality too!... Read more

  • Finding balance

    12/3/2014 1:44:04 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    I have been tracking quite regularly my food for the last two-three months. One thing I have been struggling with is that I can hit my calorie counts but my ratio is off every single day. As a vegetarian I have difficulty getting the proper protein amounts without raising my carbs or fat counts. ... Read more

  • Hebrews 13:15

    12/1/2014 7:07:58 AM, by SNUZSUZ

    By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. Hebrews 13:15... Read more

  • Biking in the Rain!

    11/29/2014 3:07:14 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    In Sacramento it does not rain much. At least since I have been here. That is one of the signatures of Seattle, people think it always rains. I believe Seattle summers are too short, but otherwise the stereotype is ridiculous. I miss Seattle and I miss the rain. The bike trail is just behin... Read more

  • My biggest life hack!

    11/28/2014 12:37:12 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    My mother is a hoarder. Her whole family is. My dad, well currently he is on the cusp of being a collector and a hoarder. Once your collection takes up so much space it is no longer a joy and easily displayed, you are a hoarder. My whole life I have suffered from an attachment to things. ... Read more

    These are my 3 kids, Davey, the youngest, on the left, Tina in the middle, and Geremy,theoldeset, on the right. I asked them to do the, "see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil" thing, and they were laughing and fooling around s... Read more

  • The buildup to the big overeating holiday.

    11/25/2014 12:20:03 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    So I like to plan meals. My partner makes fun of me. Since we have moved to a whole new state and I am technically not supposed to be in the states our holiday this year is wonky. Normally we spend it with the greatest family in the world, our friends. We have this lovely couple of boys that hos... Read more

  • When life happens, well it just happens, the hardest lesson I ever learned.

    11/21/2014 2:55:12 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    I have signed up for a CSA last September. I had one in Seattle and that poor company moved my delivery 4 times before I finally cancelled due to my bike ride. CSA's are wonderful for those who like to experiment in the kitchen. It is like Christmas every week, or every other week. In all ... Read more
