Weigh In Wednesday – Optimistic Meh?

Weigh In Wednesday – Optimistic Meh?

It’s been a while since I touched base about my health goals for the year, so I figured now was as good of a time as ever. I also just re-read all the comments on the last Weigh In Wednesday post that I wrote, which make me feel really encouraged in a time that I need it.  Can’t express just how much I love all the great things all you readers tend to leave on this blog! Anyway… When we…

Thirsty Thursday – Diet Coke

Thirsty Thursday – Diet Coke

Things are a little rough in Texas right now.  It’s not something I’ll be blogging about, but I’m trying to combat some of the rough patches by doing healthy and nice things for myself. Or setting myself up for failure by kicking out my biggest crutch… it’s a toss up! What I’m talking about folks, is diet coke.  My wonderful, amazing and delicious friend.  See, I grew up in the era of “Diet everything!  Low fat chips!” and my mother…

Weigh In Wednesday – Shifting the Dial

Weigh In Wednesday – Shifting the Dial

I love the blogger trend that Tracy started with the equestrian circle and many others are participating in – Weigh In Wednesday.  I’ve read everything from why Jen went gluten free to healthy chili from Allison.  The range of topics, opinions and goals are great.  I enjoy perusing these posts every week, and still I sit here like “humph” because I really don’t know what to say. See, I took weight loss off of my goals list this year.  I…

The Eq Diet

The Eq Diet

Fact: I am in better shape than I was one year ago. Also Fact: I have a long way to go. The “Eq Diet” is actually a really, really bad title for this post because I’m concerned about fitness, not weight.  Even though I need to lose weight, I’ve come to the realization fairly recently that… I’m not ugly.  I don’t look awful.  I’m not meant to be a size 2.  These are good things to realize for someone who…

A Tale of Two Riders

A Tale of Two Riders

I’m back on a diet… again.  Before Christmas I had lost about 20 lbs in two months through a medical weight loss plan (not surgical, just diet and an appetite suppressant) which was amazing – but the weight fell off so fast that once the holidays came around it came back on equally quick.  After a few months of floundering around in the new year and a whole bunch of “I’ll start that soon,” I got the same kick in…

The post about my cooking disaster

The post about my cooking disaster

I’m pretty cocky, and somewhat vain.  These are facts, and also driving factors behind me having a blog like this.  Throw Pinterest into the mix and we’re going to have an interesting situation.  See, Pinterest is pretty much just a collection of viral posts… and I want my blog to have a viral post. I want bazillions of internet hits, damnit. Last night, I figured my way to success with this would be an easy to make, tasty, and extremely…

The Mathematics of Food

The Mathematics of Food

It’s no big secret that I’ve had an issue with weight pretty much all my life.  There’s no need to insert a big sob story here, but the truth of the matter is I’m overweight due to three reasons.  Partially genetic (though I don’t think this is an equal part to what’s to follow), partially diet and partially laziness.  I’m kind of a picky eater, and tend to think the top 3 food groups are Diet Coke, french fries and…
