Have you ever thought about the word "Foodie?" Where do you consider yourself in this category of people?
Personally, I rarely meet a food I don't like. Except maybe anchovies, I don't like anchovies.
Wikipedia defines a FOODIE as: n.... Read more
Last night we decided to do our weekly shopping at Sprouts. Boy was I glad we did! I don't want to brag TOO much, but DANG, I had one seriously sexy and healthy looking grocery cart! The masses would have drooled. ... Read more
I made a bold decision....
It was time. Time I parted with three years of 'work.'
I got off work Friday and decided it was time for a change, so I drove straight to the hair salon and said CHOP. Chop it ALL!
I cut off almost two feet of hair!! AHHH! I'm very hap... Read more
The Ugly, Naked Truth
Here it is. The necessary but dreaded blog I HATE to write... The blog in which I come clean, face the ugly truth, and make a realistic plan to re-group.
Yesterday I painfully (and reluctantly) updated my ticker. ******siiiiiighh******

Research Article, the fun part about school.
For my biology class we have to turn in weekly research papers reviewing a current scientific publication. I tend to gravitate towards modern medical research and a lot of it health related to nutrition, exercise and weight loss (obviously ;). T... Read more
Existential Crisis a-brewing! Make it Stop!
Disclaimer: If you don't want to hear wining, don't ready any further.
Have you seen the commercial (I think it's for a credit card?) where a girl gets a parking ticket, so she goes to the gym and beats the cr@p out of a punching bag (and h... Read more

My 'Last Supper' ... Well For A While At Least
Despite my weekly attempts, I have not yet won the Powerball (frowny face). So when I have the rare opportunity to eat at an expensive, fancy-schmancy, hoity-toity, party-in-your-mouth, culinary genius-type establishment; you betchya I'm gonna b... Read more

2013's First (& Long Overdue) Backpacking Trip
I've spent the last three evenings getting ready for our upcoming boyscout backpacking trip this weekend. Gathering gear, testing gear, replacing gear, borrowing gear, shopping, organizing, making lists, making first aid kits, and the list goes ... Read more
There was a compliment in there somewhere... I think?
I have never classified myself as 'stylish.' In fact, if it weren't for Pinterest, I'd have no fashion compass what-so-ever. The only time I really go out of my way to shop for new clothes is generally only for special occasions. Shopping to me ... Read more
Thank You Sparkpeople For Being The Missing Piece to My Puzzle (w/pics of my journey)
My struggles with weight and body image issues began around 18 years ago near the age of 14. I vividly remember how crushing it felt when I overheard the boy I had a crush on refer to me as "thunder thighs" when I was in 8th grade.
