Friday, March 05, 2010      1 comments

Not only was today super super long, but it ended terribly. I was SO SO SO excited to play volleyball after work today. Volleyball is really the only sport I'm good at, the only one I'm confident at playing, and the one I enjoy the most. ... Read more
Warning: Strong Opinion!
Friday, March 05, 2010      13 comments

I'm just thinking out loud here and will probably offend/upset people, but as I clearly state a few times on my Spark Page, I'm a brutally honest person. Behind every bit of sarcasm and angst, there is some truth, believe it or not. Anyway... ... Read more
Vegan Day 18 - Have Your Cake And Eat It
Thursday, March 04, 2010      0 comments

My chocolate cake is a hit in the office! So far everyone has loved it, except for my general manager who said he just isn't a huge fan of chocolate, so that's understandable. Everyone else loves chocolate and therefore loves my cake. We have a ... Read more

Thursday, March 04, 2010      2 comments

It's a late-night blog post because I just got back from some karaoke with a friend. I sang "Walk The Line" by Johnny Cash, "Come Together" by the Beatles, and did a duet with my friend to "Pictures" by Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow... and it's now v... Read more
Vegan Day 16 - Taste Tests
Tuesday, March 02, 2010      2 comments

I remember reading somewhere a while ago that everyone's tastes for foods changes just a little bit multiple times in our lives. I think I'm at one of those times. I never used to like chocolate very much - I'd never drink chocolate milk or... Read more

Monday, March 01, 2010      1 comments

Two weeks down, two to go. This has been quite an interesting challenge so far... definitely more difficult than my month of vegetarianism in April 2009! My lunch today was leftover soup of awesomeness, which I mentioned in my blog last nig... Read more

Mail call!
Wednesday, February 24, 2010      5 comments

The mailboxes in my apartment are very poorly maintained: piles of icy snow prevent me from being motivated enough to scale them to get to my mailbox. So, I rarely get my mail more than 3 times a week. Today was one of those days, and look ... Read more

Wednesday, February 24, 2010      4 comments

The last time I weighed myself was in early January (when I took the tube-top-and-shorts before/after photo) which put me at my lowest weight in my adult life: 134.4 -- .6 pounds below my goal weight. Since then, I've been sick (yes, going ... Read more
Vegan Day 8 - Big Problem: Listening To My Body
Monday, February 22, 2010      5 comments

My body is telling me something. It's missing something. Believe me - it's not that I'm finding it hard in the sense that I'm longing for a slice of pizza. Saying no to the Girl Scout cookies that patiently wait for me on my kitchen table i... Read more
Vegan Day 7 - Low Sodium...!
Sunday, February 21, 2010      2 comments

For the first time in a while, I'm at 1000mg or less for my sodium today! Weird! One of the fears I've had (and one of the things I've had a minor issue with) since doing the vegan thing is being way over my sodium limit because of all of the fa... Read more
