Tuesday, March 27, 2012      20 comments

I've officially launched my food/nutrition blog! I'm so excited, which is probably why I'm still awake at 2am to get my first "real" post on there. Also, my gall stones are causing me some pain right now, so I wouldn't be able to fall asleep any... Read more
St. Patty's Day- MY DAY!
Sunday, March 18, 2012      11 comments

St. Patty's is one of my favorite holidays. Top 3, easily. I had a nice day staying mostly indoors. It was very windy and stormy here in the San Diego, so I stayed in where it was warm and calm. I cooked dinner- corned beef brisket (2), pot... Read more
Delish, Healthy Food for a Mental Boost Only
Wednesday, March 14, 2012      8 comments

I'm not sure what's wrong with me today. I have been nauseated (and experiencing a little bit of pain) since I woke up this morning. I'm not sure if its related to my treasonous gallbladder or not. If it is, I just need my body to hold out for 3... Read more
No Pomp and Circumstance

Six days ago (March 6) I weighed myself at my usual time, in my usual manner (before eating or drinking, with only my pj's on, after evacuating any fluids from my body first thing after waking up in the morning). I guess I just do it for consist... Read more

I had to cook a dish using a whole grain for my Advanced Nutrition class. Of course I got a late start thanks to my health issues this week. Anyway, the dinner was awesome! ... Read more
One of those days (when it rains, it pours)
Thursday, February 16, 2012      13 comments

I decided to play it safe and get that pain in my side checked out today, so I went to the doctor. There was something about white blood cells in my urine or too many white blood cells or something like that... either way, it meant inflammation/... Read more
My Baby Bro's Wedding! (Valentine's Appropriate, eh?)
Tuesday, February 14, 2012      9 comments

WHAT A WEEK! Whew! Glad its over. I still feel like I'm recovering. Anyhow, the week was completely hectic and full starting the minute I stepped foot off the Greyhound onto El Centro soil. I slept only 1 hour and dozed [sorta] on the bus for 2 ... Read more

I'm noticing a lot of my lovely SparkFriends are in the habit of posting monthly goals, either due to a team challenge they're participating in or for themselves. I realize this is NOT news and that this occurs rather frequently. Why its never o... Read more
Body Image and The Struggle Toward Acceptance
Friday, January 20, 2012      13 comments

I read a great article on MSN today about a woman who loves her body, but hates her legs. That caught my eye because I hate my legs, too! (I can't say I love my body, yet, but I suspect I'd be in a similar boat as the woman in the article.) Her... Read more
Plus Size Bodies
Thursday, January 12, 2012      9 comments

Some statistics to make you think. Just because we're plus sized, doesn't always mean we're unhealthy. I love the tips at the bottom, especially by supporting the companies that better cater to your size and supporting indie designers. ... Read more
2011 Goals... How did I do?
Sunday, January 01, 2012      8 comments

I posted a blog on January 1, 2011, with a list of 11 goals I wanted to accomplish this past year. I printed them out on a piece of fun stationary and taped it up by my bathroom mirror. Let's see how it went, shall we? 1. Actively engage in... Read more
Sleep Disorder: Unknown
Sunday, December 04, 2011      7 comments

I mentioned this in my previous blog, so I thought I'd go further into in hopes someone will have heard of this before. I've tried to research this before, but I can't find anything about it. I have had sleeping problems for a long, long ti... Read more
I said NICE weekend [overall], NOT uneventful...
Wednesday, November 30, 2011      5 comments

My holiday weekend actually started the day of Thanksgiving. I got up early so I could hit the treadmill before finishing packing and heading home. I was intending to do 60 minutes if I thought I could, but SOMEone forgot to unlock the gates lea... Read more
