Fat Girl Mentality
Wednesday, April 11, 2012      9 comments

You can call it body dysmorphia or low self-esteem or body image and probably all sorts of more clinical terms, but I call it Fat Girl Mentality. I look in the mirror and I see a giant. I see cellulite and blubber and fat and multiple chins and ... Read more
Better This Time

After a horrible almondmilk yogurt experience, I was skeptical of the whole nondairy yogurt thing, but I still had this in my fridge: SO MUCH BETTER than the almondmi... Read more

1. Vegan staff lunch! We have a few vegetarians on the staff here and they're always really good about offering veggie options at staff events. I, now, am the only vegan. I told the office manager I recognize I'm a giant pain in the ass and sh... Read more
More Kitchen Experiments
Sunday, April 08, 2012      4 comments

First I made the mistake of going to the grocery store a little hungry. This happened. The ice cream is an experiment to see if I can not binge and eat it all at once... Read more
Bad Idea. Try Again.
Thursday, April 05, 2012      3 comments

Because of my hypothyroidism, I try to limit my soy. I eat some and it's fine, but I try not to make it the cornerstone of my diet. This has been more difficult since going vegan, I think. I miss my greek yogurt. Like, a lot. I do like Who... Read more
Productive Night!
Wednesday, April 04, 2012      4 comments

Yesterday I worked all day, went to the grocery store, cooked up a storm, cleaned the kitchen, (almost) veganized the pantry, and did two loads of laundry. That's more than I usually do on a weekend, let alone a weeknight!! I initially dec... Read more
Sneaky Negative Thoughts
Tuesday, April 03, 2012      5 comments

Over the past few years I have made a concerted effort to stop with the 'you suck' talk. Sure, I had a cookie, but that doesn't mean I'm an incompetent fat slob who will never succeed at anything. That's a slight exaggeration but that's the gist... Read more
Parisian Food Pics
Monday, April 02, 2012      6 comments

There was a vegetarian restaurant across the street from my hotel in Paris. Yippee! I had nut loaf with mushroom gravy with vegetables and potatoes. The nut loaf was a little dry but the gravy sure made it better. ... Read more
I'm BAAAAAAAAACK!
Monday, April 02, 2012      4 comments

Back in the United States. Back to exercising regularly. Back to tracking my food. Back to veganism. It feels good to be back! Last week I was in Paris and I decided early on that veganism + Paris wouldn't work very well. T... Read more
A Few Pictures

So first I found this, which turned out to be really close to my hotel: Then this wasn't far away either: ... Read more
Almost Vacation Time!
Friday, March 30, 2012      1 comments

I thought I was going to be done at 130pm today but instead I now have to go to a board meeting and then dinner so basically I won't be technically on vacation until about 10pm. Quelle dommage. I have pretty much sucked at being a vegan th... Read more
Observations
Tuesday, March 27, 2012      3 comments

1. I have some old pants that I used to have to wear Spanx under for them to be not obscene. They've been bordering on too big for awhile now, but they're short enough to wear with flats so I brought both pairs to Paris. Since I've been here I'v... Read more
Abandoning Veganism for One Week
Monday, March 26, 2012      2 comments

As I suspected, there's no reasonable way to stay vegan this week. Between the language issue and the butter-cheese culture issue, it's just unrealistic. I probable won't be tracking much. But I will stay on track as much as possible. (Though I ... Read more
SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE! Hello, 70s!
Saturday, March 24, 2012      11 comments

Ever seen a grown woman burst into tears in her own bathroom? My goal all along has been to get below 180 before leaving for Paris tonight. I have been stuck in the 80s for approximately EVER. I did not have a good feeling going toward the... Read more
It Ain't Easy Being Green
Friday, March 23, 2012      3 comments

I'm leaving tomorrow for 8 days so I haven't been to the grocery store. I've been making do with what's in the fridge but it hasn't been the best food week ever. On the upside, this vegan thing has made it much easier to not eat random crap in r... Read more
