I made chocolate drizzled pretzels last night (for my co-workers - our holiday party is Thursday). I was good too, I had less than two. I made them with Ghiradelli 60% cacao chocolate chips, which I thought was a nice touch. At first, des... Read more

I recently decided to tag along with sparker COMBATXBABY's challenge of losing 10 lbs by Xmas. I don't know if that is 100% possible, but it can't hurt to try. I'm at 158 right now (I refuse to count that +2 lbs that I believe is TOM's fau... Read more

So I've made it pretty apparent that I've been stressed lately. After my last post things got a LOT better. First: I found out that D is about 99% likely to collect enough unemployment that he can continue to help pay his share of the ... Read more

This past weekend I wasn't "great". But I am not mad at myself for not being great. I feel ok because I know that I'm not going to be great all the time. Yesterday, Monday, I was Great. I ate right, I worked out, I even went to bed early (fo... Read more

Hey y'all, So I went a LITTLE over my calories (less than 100 though) but even that I think is a bit off since I often overestimate when measuring out some ingredients, so really I think my calories are on point. AND the only reason it "we... Read more

So last night I read another Sparker's blog and decided I shouldn't be afraid to weigh myself just because I've "been bad" or because I've been avoiding it because I know what to expect. I was not entirely surprised to see I'd gained 5 more pou... Read more
