It's The Journey
I haven’t been blogging much recently. And, to be honest, I’m glad people haven’t really noticed. I don’t know of it’s because of shark week or because I’m nostalgic. But I miss how tumblr used to be. Which puts in the mind set of whether I should continue blogging. But then I have moments, like now, where I have something to say. It seems like now, everyones...

Done Been Tagged: 10 Random Things
So both fat-chance and momrunnerwife tagged me to answer the 10 questions thingy that’s been floating around here. So, here it goes. Edit: Oops, and fattylife after the fact. 10: If I ever got a tattoo, it would be the main theme to superman on my lower back, but probably not for the reason you think. (just the staff and music notes part) 09: I can cross my little toe over the one next...
So about 2 weeks ago, I posted my basil/garlicy whole wheat gnocchi and I got a few questions about it. This is the brand I use, I found it at Trader Joes. I’ve also found it at a small local (import) market as well, not this brand, but a similar one. As for the garlic-infused olive oil, I have actually made my own before, but the one I am currently using was a (super genius) holiday...

First Work Out
In more or less a month. Actually, that’s not being fair to myself. I have walked to dogs for 15-30 minutes 4-5 days a week in that month. But it was hard. Like, sweat running into my eyes and down my cleavage (sexxxy) hard. Like trembling so bad I have to stop mid set hard. But look, my lions mane came out and helped. First (gym) work out in a month? Owned. Edit: now excuse me while...
NSV: The Best Friend Edition
My best friend, Jackie, is one of the few people outside my family who has my blog url. She doesn’t really have the time to look at it, but it’s more that I know I can trust her with it (and also, “hi Kim!”). Anyway, I was over at her place tonight to watch some season 1 True Blood. I went into the kitchen to put the enchiladas that I has made into tupperware for her. She...

I start my trek to a Bachelors in Nutritional Sciences. Holy f*ck. Look what you fitblrs have done to me! (Probably as a RD, love learning about nutrition, but do not want to research it the rest of my life…)
Yesterday I ate about 1,800 calories, maybe a little more. I ate when I was hungry. And I made smart food choices (although, I probably could have done without the cookie or the dark chocolate, I wanted them and was exhausted, so I ate them) I took the dogs for a walk, did two loads of laundry and cooked/baked for 3ish hours. Today, I saw a loss of 1.3 lbs. So please don’t tell me that you...

While most of you are Fitpocalypse-ing it up, I will be maintaining. It’s not like it sadness me, but this month is going to be hard and I firmly believe that when working on juggling your life and keeping it in balance, sometimes you have to make small sacrifices. So, my weight loss, or maintenance, this month will be that sacrifice. And who knows, maybe because I’m so much more...
