I browned 1in chicken pi... Read more
Today was one of those days where I was a bit out of it, so I tried to keep it to easy things. Fortunately, we got the new bulb for the epifluorescent microscope, so I sat and counted cells for 90 min. I'm used to doing that, and it doesn't requ... Read more

So, yesterday was pretty awful. All kinds of things were going wrong at work, some of them due to my own stupidity, some due to the randomness of lab life, some due to other stupid people unplugging my equipment. Anyway, I totally gave in to a s... Read more
Whew, is it nice to be back at maintenance calories after 5 days in a deficit and low-carb. Technically, I'm using maintenance calories for someone 3-4lbs lighter than me, but that's where I want to be (and was once), so I'm happy there. Still, ... Read more
So, all of my bloodwork came back normal. I figured that would happen. Anyway, what that means is one of a few options 1) I still have Celiac's, but the antibodies hadn't built up in my system enough to show up on the test due to being gluten-fr... Read more

Our DVR is having issues. Maybe it doesn't like 24, or Lost, or other things, but it seems to randomly decide not to work. Unfortunately, this means that we miss watching things when are meant to watch them. Not cool. It makes my husband kind of... Read more
My weekly meal plan, for my own purposes and anyone interested. I've finally solved my lunch/dinner dilemma, which I've never discussed before. Essentially, Bill eats a 500 calorie dinner, and I would prefer 300 cals because I have to eat more t... Read more
My doctor's appointment went as I expected. I spent about 3 min. talking to the doctor about thing I already know, and went and got blood drawn, and will get the results next week. I'm incredibly glad the wheat thing is over, because last night ... Read more
I know, it has been a while.
So, first thing's first, why has it been a while 1) I am sometimes a busy person and 2) I'm doing a gluten challenge. So, my whole wheat thing is getting exciting, because I finished my double blind study which ... Read more
I was MIA yesterday, but I've eaten a lot of great food lately, so I have a few recipes to share.
Last night, I made a great stir fry. I used cubed round steak (8oz), broccoli rabe (2 cups flowers and stems), and shredded cabbage (1.5 cups)... Read more
Wow, it is time for a serious update. Last week was a little bit nuts, I was out 3/5 nights, which made dinner and exercise more difficult, but still accomplished. I was at the dinner and a movie party with a quinoa dish in a white wine sauce th... Read more
I'm working on that leisurely breakfast, or at least I haven't done breakfast to the sounds of the Today Show all week. It is an interesting experience.
This week has been nuts, but I've mostly been sticking with my exercise and eating plan... Read more
