Baby Weight

If there is one thing that makes me want to eat everything in the world, it's something that freaks me out. Whatever that might be, if it's scary enough, I want FOOD. Really bad food, too. And LOTS of it. I have a job interview this aftern... Read more

What To Eat And When
Tuesday, January 12, 2010      0 comments

I always knew there is a certain way to eat for people to lose weight. There is a science to it and the body is a funny machine. First of all, even though I count my calories and stay somewhat near the recommended amounts, it doesn't autom... Read more

I'm writing this right before I hop into bed and try to get to sleep for at least 7 hrs. I have been having trouble sleeping lately. Not really with sleeping, but with actually getting to bed. I think my brain wants me to get so tired that I jus... Read more

All month long in December, I am faced with Free Food left and right. I allow myself one day, one meal, a week to eat whatever I want. And I pigged OUT on Monday for our company's "Food Days" at work. Everyone brought in treats or paid $$ ... Read more
