Day 24 - Flu-ish & Cookies
Thursday, January 24, 2013      3 comments

Jason got sick starting Monday afternoon and then was REALLY sick yesterday (Wednesday). Jason doesn't get sick, and when he does, it's usually over and done within 24 hours or so. I stayed home from my Young Women's activity last night so tha... Read more
Day 22 - Kitchens
Tuesday, January 22, 2013      5 comments

This is a little off topic from the usual low-carb/pro-swimming posts that I usually write here, but I'm actually looking for input. On Saturday, Jason went to Home Depot where they were advertising a free consultation for kitchen cabinet r... Read more
Recipe: Spiced Chickpeas
Monday, January 21, 2013      3 comments

We got a package of coupons from our local grocery store that included recipes for the couponed items. Surprisingly, I actually wanted to make a couple of them. I made this one for spiced chickpeas tonight. Crunchy on the outside and soft on ... Read more
Day 21 - Weigh-in
Monday, January 21, 2013      1 comments

I didn't get around to weighing and measuring on Saturday and Sunday, and finally did it this morning when I got up. I shouldn't call it a weigh-in, but a measure-in, since measurements tell me more truth about toning up and losing fat. Yeah, ... Read more
Day 18 - The Gym. FINALLY!
Friday, January 18, 2013      3 comments

That's right, I dragged my bum out of bed this morning, in the cold and dark, and I went to the gym! I am so proud of myself, you would think I ran a marathon or something. It was just the one-hour strength training class, and it totally beat ... Read more
Day 17 - So Sweet. So, So Sweet.
Thursday, January 17, 2013      3 comments

This week is Restaurant Week in Providence and I have a friend who I always go out to lunch with during Restaurant Week. Lunch is a starter, entree and dessert for $14.95. Not too shabby considering that we went to The Capital Grille today, wh... Read more
Day 16 - Good Intentions
Wednesday, January 16, 2013      1 comments

Despite my promises to myself and emphatic statements on this blog, I still haven't made it to the gym this week. My food is going well. I had some rice today because I had a lunch at a Korean restaurant, but not too much. I won't have any mo... Read more
Day 14 - What Is It That I'm Doing?
Monday, January 14, 2013      0 comments

A friend of mine emailed me on Facebook after I posted links to my blogs on there and asked me for some more specifics about what exactly I'm doing. I wound up writing her a long email, and I thought I would put it on my blog in case anyone els... Read more
Day 13 - Corn
Sunday, January 13, 2013      1 comments

Weird subject line, right? Basically, I had some corn yesterday. I also had maybe 8 or 9 ounces of Diet Dr. Pepper. Jason and I went to the Boston Celtic Music Festival yesterday, which is always a fun time. There are so many talented mu... Read more
Day 12 - Weigh-In
Saturday, January 12, 2013      5 comments

I decided to wait until today for my first weigh-in, since it's a Saturday and I wanted to get on a weekly schedule and Saturday mornings are more leisurely and conducive to weight-ins and other non-essential things. The verdict? I've l... Read more
Day 9 - Binging (In A Good Way)
Wednesday, January 09, 2013      0 comments

No, no, not THAT kind of binging. I am still on top of my food. I'm talking about podcasts. When I'm eating junk and not working out, I tend to avoid my low-carb/Paleo podcasts, because I believe what they're saying, but I don't really ... Read more
Day 8 - Visibly Better
Tuesday, January 08, 2013      1 comments

I made it to the gym this morning! It had been so long that the woman who works at the front desk asked me where I have been. I told her, "I've been in laziness." She asked what brought me back and I told her New Years Resolutions, needing to... Read more
Day 7 - Banana Bread
Monday, January 07, 2013      6 comments

(The good thing about starting this whole thing on January 1 is it's really easy to keep track of what day I'm on) Friday afternoon I felt kind of blah and was really craving sugar. I went to the store near my office mid-afternoon and got ... Read more
Day 4 - Observed
Friday, January 04, 2013      1 comments

Observed so far: • You know those really annoying people who are all, "I forgot to eat! Tee hee!" Yeah, well, yesterday, I was one of those people. I was working along and before I knew it, it was 1 PM and I needed to eat lunch. Usual... Read more
Day 3 - Carb Flu
Thursday, January 03, 2013      4 comments

Well, it's either carb flu or the real flu. The point is, today I feel crummy. I always forget how Day 3 hits me. This time I was actually thinking I was getting off light with the carb withdrawal. Day 1 and Day 2: piece of cake! Th... Read more
