week in review: cats, cupcakes, and compadres

Linking up with Meghan, over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets today. Fairly productive week over here, this past week, with a few unexpected surprises thrown in for good measure. Got in all of my workouts for the week:  four cardio sessions, plus two strength-training sessions. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 65,000 steps for the week.… Continue reading week in review: cats, cupcakes, and compadres

planning my week (a necessity for my sanity right now)

I’ve gotten a little off-track this week with food and exercise (where “off-track” means either I haven’t done it at all–exercise–or I’ve been severely slacking for the past two days–food). So I need to get it together today, and get my week planned out, as far as food and exercise goes. I try to plan… Continue reading planning my week (a necessity for my sanity right now)

knowing better, but doing it anyway

Apparently, I do not learn from my mistakes. I’m a smart person. I should know better than to do things I know are going to end badly. (Ha. Hahahahaha. “Should” being the operative word.) Anyway, Enough about my personal faults. (We don’t have time to get into them.) So, I went out to eat with… Continue reading knowing better, but doing it anyway

two things…well, really three

Two things: 1) I ate non-vegan last night for the first time in two weeks and I can tell such a difference in how I feel. Yesterday was my mom’s birthday, and Bubba took us all out to dinner to celebrate. Eating vegan would have been practically impossible at the home-cooking-style restaurant he chose, so… Continue reading two things…well, really three

food and family (with a side of fitness)

Despite all the stress lately, I have still somehow managed to keep eating vegan. And Bubba is here now, and loves to make fun of my eating patterns. Little brothers, sigh….Normally, stress-eating would already have triggered some sort of binge, but, while I did have french fries for lunch the other day, that’s all I… Continue reading food and family (with a side of fitness)

weekend mix-up

You know when you have a plan in your mind of things you want to happen in a weekend, certain things on your to-do list, and it doesn’t quite work out that way?  Yeah. I’m having one of those weekends.  I decided a few weeks ago that Saturday would be my Sabbath:  I normally go… Continue reading weekend mix-up

the vegan life

So, the vegan “detox” is going pretty well. Except they were out of my favorite hummus–roasted pine nut–and I ended up with sun-dried tomato, which I don’t particularly care for. I sort of fell off the healthy-eating wagon yesterday and had some french fries, but in my defense, I was stressed after work, and what… Continue reading the vegan life
