Vegan-iversay

On January 30th I celebrated one full year of eating a plant-based diet and about six months of being vegan. I say that because in the beginning it was just about weight loss and health for me, I hadn’t made the connection to the animals. I wasn’t consciously […]

My Weekday Evening Routine

Last week I discussed how following a routine makes my life better and I shared my usual weekday morning routine. This week I am focused on my evening routine. Typically Monday through Friday I get home from work between 4:45 and about 5:15 pm. I am not going […]

My Weekday Morning Routine

Just Another Snowy Monday

I had a bit of a lazy weekend. I just didn’t feel good, very achy and stiff, stomach cramps, and headache. I just wanted my warm fuzzy blanket and comfort food. So Saturday I made some mashed potatoes, hamburger and onions with gravy, and canned peas and carrots. […]

WTF?! Up Another Almost Pound

Well I’m definitely bloating up over something because that little Wii Fit board dude says I am up another 0.9 pound again today. It sounds like he’s saying Ow! when he weighs me, like the continuous gain is physically hurting him. Perhaps it is … maybe I am […]

2015 Goals Exercise

On Tuesday it was goal setting day at my work but I didn’t go because I was just too wiped out from the travel storm stuck fiasco to get my head on straight enough to attend. Even though I didn’t go I wanted to do the exercise so […]
