Why meal plans don’t work and what to do instead

On the surface, meal plans seem like the solution to all our fat loss woes. They tell us exactly what to eat, how much of it and when. There’s no guessing involved; it’s all spelled out in black and white. And if there’s one thing people love, it’s being given the answer. But have you […] Read more…

A Day In The Life

So I decided to do this post not because my life is particularly interesting or exciting, but because I thought it would be helpful to show people how I practice moderation, especially when I’m on a cut. This was from Friday, Nov. 11 and I was actually a bit tighter with what I ate than […] Read more…

A review of my absense in photos.

Damn. It’s been a while.   Where to even start…   Oh yeah, the no sugar bet. David and I both made it through the week without ingesting any added sugar. (We were still eating fruit and dairy though.) We even withheld at a party that had these treats laid out before us, begging to […] Read more…

Day 2 – A new twist

I know I’ve extolled the virtues of being an unprejudiced eater, but even I have my aversions. One of which was unknown to me until last week. In my last batch of produce from the co-op, I received 3 persimmons. If you are as inexperienced with produce as I am, you may be asking yourself, […] Read more…

Tomorrow is another day.

This weekend was a doozy. You see, David works at Whole Foods. And sometimes he brings home “goodies” (although I think it’d be more fitting to call them “badies.”) This week’s batch of evil temptation came in the form of cornbread. And not the dry, crumbly kind they used to sell in the school cafeteria. […] Read more…

Are you a picky eater?

How many times have you liked a song a lot more the second or third or tenth time hearing it? What about movies? The first time I saw Juno I thought it was so overrated. (No 16 year old talks like that or is that cool.) Then the second time I saw it I wasn’t […] Read more…

Looks like I’ve got my work cut out for me!

Today I received my first organic co-op share via the Organic Buying Club of South Florida. The way it works is you join a group in your area, usually as a substitute so you can try it out before deciding to commit. And once every two weeks you pick up a bunch of organic veggies, […] Read more…

The pool guy saw me naked

Dear all 10 people who read my blog, forgive my absence. Things have been cray-cray in the real world. As you may remember, I was staying at my parents’ house while I had a new floor installed at my place. Well, one morning when no one was home I decided to walk around the house […] Read more…

Back to normalcy…

The first day back from vacation is surprisingly refreshing for me. I feel settled and excited to get back into a groove. It’s like a homecoming homeostasis, if that makes any sense. The highlight of my first day back was going to a farmer’s market in Pinecrest. Miss Guru Rabbit (aka Sylvia) was there selling […] Read more…
