So after some experimentation, a calorie is NOT a calorie. I thought that I could be active, eat pretty much what I wanted under a certain calorie count, and lose weight. It worked for about 3 weeks or so. Then I stopped losing, then I started e... Read more

Hellooo. I am back from Vegas and I was super happy to weigh in this morning and see that I managed to lose a pound despite being inundated with food (and indulging a little) in Las Vegas. Eating in Vegas is expensive! Sure I could have ea... Read more

So I got a good lesson in yesterday, haha! I think I've mentioned before that I am a big gamer, my husband and I both are. We play a lot of a game called League of Legends. I've also talked about mindless eating. Sometimes I get into a brai... Read more

I noticed something interesting today as I looked back at how I've come to about 2 full weeks on a new fitness/diet plan and it doesn't feel like it has been that long. I've been working out almost every single day, (I think there were 2 days wh... Read more

So I've been doing great, tracking calories and saving calories for the times of day when my body wants them. I've also been doing short (but sometimes intense) workouts almost every day. (I've decided one day a week I will give myself a break.)... Read more

For the past few years, I've usually gone over to a friend's house for what she calls "low key" new year's. It's usually been just a few of us with lots of wine and various liquors, and unfortunately lots and lots of smoking. My husband do... Read more
Wine! Also, a question about weighing every single day...
Sunday, December 31, 2017      4 comments

So I've always wanted to learn about wine, but my husband and I haven't really been in the position to buy more than a bottle or two a month. I like the idea of trying lots of different wines and learning my tastes, because there is nothing more... Read more
