Quick update
Friday, May 08, 2015      2 comments

I'm still internet-less at home because the internet guy never showed up Wednesday (yay small town). I'm at a client's place right now and I figured I'd give you guys a quick update before I had to go. I have no idea when I'm going to have inter... Read more

Thursday, April 30, 2015      4 comments

So I'm ready to move! Everything or almost is packed up. Most of my day yesterday was spent doing that on and off before I had to go to Langenburg to a client's place, and I took a break after supper. Today I slept in (ugh...) so I bailed on my ... Read more

Grocery shopping: do it alone
Friday, April 24, 2015      3 comments

About three times per month I drive to Yorkton to buy some groceries at the Canadian Superstore and run some other errands, usually at Value Village and Dad's Organic Market. It's an hour drive from where I live which I'm willing to make, becaus... Read more
A rainbow of goals
Thursday, April 23, 2015      2 comments

I think one of the main reasons people will "fail" with their weight loss plan is because they only set one goal: losing weight. Losing 10 pounds is one of my goals. It was the first one that came to my mind - but right now it feels more like ... Read more

I probably blog too much here. LOL I think I mostly use it more as a journal for myself than as a way of sharing stuff, but whatever. I'll try to keep my entries shorter in the future :P This morning I fought with myself. A lot. I finished ... Read more

Yesterday I finished reading the book/essay on happiness I'd been reading for two weeks. I always read really fast, but for this one I had to go slow because I was taking regular pauses to think about what I just read. So this morning I sta... Read more

Sunday, April 19, 2015      3 comments

Outside of the circumstances, this weekend was a GREAT weekend. Friday night I made a huge shepherd's pie - I had too much and had to separate between two dishes; I froze one of them, we had half of one for supper and I put the other half i... Read more
Variables, part two
Friday, April 17, 2015      3 comments

Why you gotta take all variables into consideration
Tuesday, April 14, 2015      4 comments

A simple way to explain weight loss is mathematics. More calories in than calories out and you gain weight; more calories out than calories in and you lose weight. Of course a LOT of things come into consideration in this equation. Your BMR, y... Read more
