Airplanes, Long Weekends and the Little Joys of Life

Oh man, first things first.  Sometimes you can’t see in the mirror that your ass really is smaller, but American Airlines is happy to let you know.  Seat belts are just as good as showing progress as a notch on an actual belt, not that I’ve worn one in years.  When you’re super short waistedContinue reading “Airplanes, Long Weekends and the Little Joys of Life”

Meal Planning & Going Out

The story goes, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.”  That is so true when it comes to me and the kitchen, and it’s always been that way.  I will freely admit I’m not the best at planning my week, and I’ve thrown away my fair share of rotten veggies…big old sad faceContinue reading “Meal Planning & Going Out”

Dairy Free Macaroni and Cheese is the Worst.

Seriously.  I can’t even.  CAN’T EVEN.  Not to be a basic bitch about things, but I give up.  Sure, I miss Pumpkin Spice Lattes because Starbucks only has soy as their crappy non-dairy alternative.  Boozy brunches just aren’t the same without an egg bennie because carbs don’t count on Sundays, okay?  The gluten thing is mostly fine,Continue reading “Dairy Free Macaroni and Cheese is the Worst.”

Surviving New Year’s – Boozy Treats, College Football, and Cooking

Happy New Year, everyone! This might be the first year I haven’t made any resolutions – I made all the bad behavior changes I cared to make in October.  For 2015, I resolve to give up beer!  Lasagna!  Bubbles and cheese plates!  Oh wait…already did all of that.  I will keep working towards my goalContinue reading “Surviving New Year’s – Boozy Treats, College Football, and Cooking”

Weight Watchers, Food Journals and Weight Issues

Good morning!  First, just have to say thank you for everyone that read my blog yesterday!  I think I had 125 views, and it even found some people that weren’t already my friends.  So cool!  Y’all know I love some statistical data and WordPress has all kinds of charts for me. So, food journals. I’veContinue reading “Weight Watchers, Food Journals and Weight Issues”

Pizza and Pasta

Eating at home is no problem, and I can generally find my way at restaurants (fyi, steakhouses and Mexican seem to be the easiest.)  When all else fails, like when you’re at Lambert’s in Missouri avoiding those thrown rolls, get a salad.  No dressing.  Because that mess always has soy. Mom made a great discovery,Continue reading “Pizza and Pasta”

It’s not a weight loss blog. Seriously.

Update on 1/30:  I’ve now moved my original post to it’s own page so it’s easy to find. Seriously.  But with great change comes great reward, so I’m sure I will post about those changes too.  This all started in October, when I found out I had to cut gluten, soy and dairy from myContinue reading “It’s not a weight loss blog. Seriously.”
