Has anyone seen my mojo?
Sunday, June 05, 2011      11 comments

My vegetarianism (hmm, is that a word?) has been going great. Today was Day 10 and I've had absolutely no meat cravings at all. It also seems to have significantly helped my tummy issues! Yay! On the other hand, my running mojo has all bu... Read more

Do you have a skinny kitchen?
Sunday, April 10, 2011      7 comments

I was reading an article about how to stock a "Skinny Kitchen" and it stated that you should always have at least 6 "go-to" foods/meals on hand (healthy of course!). This really makes a lot of sense because I know that for me personally, when I ... Read more
