We all need to start the day with a healthy breakfast. I know there are some of you out there, that can't handle the thought of stuffing food down their gullet until, like ten-ish. I however, am not one of those people. I 'm a hungry camper in the morning. Sometimes I think it's the grumbling of my belly, not the alarm clock that wakes me up and forces me out of my nice, cozy bed. As you may have noticed, I'm partial to sweets. And I do love a flaky, delicious pastry in the morning afternoon ... Read More about Poached Egg and Avocado Toast
Fourteen years ago I brought home the sweetest little puppy. Her arrival prompted the one and only "real" argument my husband and I have ever had. We had recently put down our dog Jake, and his absence was killing me. Everyone grieves differently and my way of dealing was to immediately get another dog. I wasn't trying to replace him, as much as fill the void he had left in the house. Dan asked me not to. Buuuuuuuuut, I did it anyway. It was a hot, summer day and I drove two hours to ...

For those of you who have been following my weekly weigh in, I'm sorry I haven't posted for a couple weeks. You really haven't missed much. Well, besides some tears, temper tantrums and curse words. It has been frustrating, to say the least. Constant failure is exhausting. The girls in my office are kicking ass on Weight Watchers and over the past six weeks I have gained 2 pounds. I have struggled my entire life with my weight. I silently suffered from eating disorders in high school. I was ... Read More about 12 Week Wednesday Weight Loss Challenge – Week Six
It's been three weeks already. Last week I reminded you that BLTs count. That being said, one of my goals was to log every bite, even BLTs. I really wanted to know why I gained last week. I was so good about logging everything. Um, yeah, turns out I was eating like 10 points in Mentos! Yup, fucking Mentos! I never looked at the point value, I just assumed, mistakenly, that they were maybe 1 point for 5 or so. Nope. 1 point each! And I was eating them like, well, candy. The was the end of that. ...

I love a good BLT. Salty bacon, fresh, crisp lettuce and vine-ripened, garden tomatoes between thick, toasted bread and a rich swipe of mayo. I'm salivating just thinking about it. Do you love a good BLT? I eat BLTs everyday. And since I made a promise to share my victories and defeats, I gained a pound this week. And I'm cranky about it. I'm pretty sure it's because of all those BLTs. I can't help myself. Oh, by the way, This is not the BLT to which I am referring. I'm ...
