I baked yesterday. Lemon Glazed cookies and meringue drops. I have pictures, but I will not post them since they are not healthy in any way and I don't want to trigger anybody's cravings. The treats were for my cousin's wedding shower. N... Read more

Carbs Add Up Really Fast!
Wednesday, June 19, 2013      5 comments

Today was not a great day on the nutrition tracker. LOTS of breads and grains left me way over on my carbs and topped out on my calories for the day. I only got in a 1.5 mile walk this evening, and I still have three more sets of squats to d... Read more

I've been bitten by the infamous procrastination bug. I've been avoiding writing my statement of purpose (for my grad school application) all day. I did get up early again today (Day 3!) and I went for a 4.5 mile walk this morning. I did... Read more
