Monday, June 13, 2011      1 comments

So I went home this weekend for alumni weekend and, as predicted, had a bit of a falling down food-wise. There was the cheesecake fiasco at the ice breaker dance Friday night, and then the brie fiasco of Class of '71 Reunion. Good thing I had li... Read more

So I went back to the yoga studio today for a de-stress class (which was great, by the way), and was having a food moment on my way. Th thing is, I brought a peach for a snack, and when I started eating the peach the pit split open and oh, looki... Read more
Mmmm... Salad!
Sunday, June 05, 2011      2 comments

I've been on a salad kick lately for supper. I LOVE throwing a bunch of fruit and vegetables into a bowl and having at it. They're so filling and satisfying, yet have so few calories. I feel like I'm adding ingredients for a half hour and still ... Read more
Starting Over
Saturday, June 04, 2011      0 comments

So, I weighed myself today. One look at my tracker (if you've followed me at all) will tell you that the number was disappointing. Seriously. I have been trying SO HARD and denying myself SO MUCH and kicking my own ass all over the place and hav... Read more

So like a month ago, I bought a ten class pass for yoga at a studio about a mile from my house. I realized the other day that I have eight weeks to get these ten classes in, so I figured I'd better start. Believe me when I say I was talking myse... Read more

I've always been interested in vegan cuisine and have several vegan cookbooks. Most of the cooking I do is vegan, and one day when I looked in my fridge I realized that the only dairy I consume on a regular basis was milk and yogurt. I thought, ... Read more
Boredom Eating
Thursday, May 26, 2011      1 comments

So... here I am at work with nothing to do because I'm not at my own desk. When boredom strikes, especially at work where I can't just find some way to amuse myself, I feel the urge to eat. Fortunately, I don't have anything junky here to eat, b... Read more

So I finally decided to take the bull by the horns and make some serious changes in the way things work around here. Even though I was keeping track of my calories, I felt like I still wasn't making progress. So... * I stopped looking at how m... Read more
My Favorite Salad
Sunday, April 03, 2011      3 comments

I love making salads and usually stick to simple, four ingredient ones. Some combination of greens, nuts, cheese and fruit. I had some stuff leftover in my fridge though a... Read more

I broke 135! No foolin'! I am now the contented owner of 134 pounds. I never in my life thought I'd be so happy to see that number. Ha ha What changed? Well... I admit my approach is unorthodox, but I stopped working out. I know, I know. But loo... Read more

I'm pretty good about actually doing stuff I don't want to do (going that extra 15 minutes on the treadmill, resisting the siren song of the Reese's Fast Break), but still, I really like this idea of keeping a journal that tracks how I feel befo... Read more

I weighed myself this morning. But dude! I REALLY felt like I must have lost SOMEthing. My pants seem to fit better, after all, and I swear when I looked in the mirror yesterday I looked thinner. Even though my measurements hadn't changed I thou... Read more

So... I totally should have taken a picture of my dinner. It came out so good! I knew I was going to make Curried Split Pea Soup from Vegan with a Vengeance. It's one of my favorites and when I discovered a forgotten bag of split peas on my shel... Read more
Water, Water Everywhere
Friday, March 18, 2011      0 comments

Even though my measurements are the same, and I presume my weight is the same, I feel like I LOOK so much better since I started this water thing. Who knew?! I have a 32 ounce water bottle that I use, so I only have to fill it twice to get my da... Read more
