I think corn gets a bad rap. Yeah, it’s probably ruining our farming system with all the genetically engineered crops. Not to mention, high fructose corn syrup is ruining our healthy bodies. But there is nothing like corn on the cob fresh from the local farm garden! I decided to treat myself tonight and pick [...]

haha! I decided to be brave and just weigh myself now. Face the music and not fool myself! And I am happy to say that I didn’t gain or lose any! Yay. Vacation didn’t throw me too much off track! I still have 6 lbs lost!
I feel good, back from a wonderful vacation. As usual, made good and bad choices, but all in all, I feel pretty good. We walked a lot, as well as ATV riding, which believe it or not, is good for muscles and balance. Desserts and fatty foods were occasionally on the menu, but so were [...]
Well, I gave in to vacation temptations. I had spaghetti and meatballs on Saturday night (brought home a doggy bag) and today, I had a few of Mike’s Cheesy fries with gravy (poutine) and a piece of deep rich chocolate mousse cake. It was delish! I am trying very hard to be good, and I [...]
Well yesterday morning’s weigh in must have been a fluke. I am back up to just 6 lbs loss today. Not a bad thing, just a little disappointing. I know my weight is going to fluctuate a lot, and this is just a lesson to not weigh myself every day. We’re heading out on vacation [...]
I weighed myself again this morning BEFORE breakfast, and it looks like I am down another pound, at least. It might be more, but again, my eyes are so bad, that I can’t see exactly where the little line is. But it’s definitely lower than yesterday’s weigh in after breakfast. So, that makes at least [...]
wow, I am shocked. We’re in the middle of a summer heat wave, and I have been feeling bloated and just plain “heavy” I weighed myself this morning after breakfast and a shower, and I am shocked! I am down at least one more pound. I am near sighted, so it’s hard to read the [...]
I had a pound of bottom round (Swiss steak) and even though it was wicked hot outside, I still decided to braise for a couple of hours. It was delicious with some Yukon gold potatoes! And the calories weren’t too bad either!
I was really baaaaad today. Dad and mom came over for dad’s birthday. I picked at the bones/skin of the homemade rotisserie chicken while Mike was slicing it and I had some birthday cake. I tried to be honest with the calories and portions and tried to calculate higher. I did ask mom about the [...]
HA! I was so happy that I found a bouquet of fresh basil yesterday at the farm. I brought it home, stuck it in a glass of water in the refrigerator, only to find it turning icky black today when I wanted to use it to make fresh pesto. Come to find out, you aren’t [...]
