Pretty good actually. Ate my typical healthy breakfast.   Had a business lunch where I loaded up on the green salad, green beans had some chicken and a smidge of the mashed potatoes.  They were awesome!  That lunch kept me pretty satisfied. Dinner – I had these great intentions of making Chicken Tikka Masala tonight […]Continue Reading


I love Elana’s Pantry and the recipes/tips/advice she gives.  I’ve followed her on Twitter, liked her on Facebook and recently bought her cookbook – The Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook.  I’m just about to order my almond flour from Nuts Online, which is one of her recommended places to purchase the almond flour that works […]Continue Reading

That was my day!  Work from early this morning, dinner with the hubby, followed by a fierce workout then a very late night grocery shop at Winco.  I am definitely tired now…but the cupboards and fridge are stocked – just a few more things to pick up tomorrow. Workout was great tonight! I pushed myself […]Continue Reading


Sheesh – you can do all these restrictive things to be healthier and yet you can still make some not so healthy choices!  Carbs are not my friend.  I’m still losing weight.  I haven’t cheated.  The weight loss has tapered a bit though.  Again, I know some of that is because I’m working out and […]Continue Reading
