Menu Plan Monday: Uncomplicated

March 21, 2019

I really hate being sick. I hate how it drains my energy, physical, mental, and emotional. Pretty sure I have yet another URI with a splash of tonsilitis or bronchitis (because I have never seemed to grow out of my "childhood diseases"). I spent most of last night propped up and coughing and really mad that my insurance won't kick in for 30 days, and really really grateful for Vick's, Luden's / Fisherman's Friend, Ricola, and honey packets.

Menu Plan Monday: Week of March 4-9, 2019

March 4, 2019


This is a bit of a crazy week. I am finally employed again (YAY! I start today!), but I have a long commute (not so yay), out of the city and I don't think I will have time to grocery shop until I get a better lay of the land and my new schedule.

Menu Plan Monday: February 17- 24

Menu Plan Monday | Clean Eating for the Masses

Sometimes it takes me a little bit to get back into the proverbial saddle. I planned for all of January, and most of February is in my Passion Planner, I just haven't gotten around to that final step of putting it on the blog. Lucky for you, I'm feeling extra motivated today, so here you go, this week's menu plan.


January 2019 Whole 30

January 3, 2019

Hell Week. I mean month. Here we go, the reset. The fun part this time around, trying to make it work for three people, one who is on a restricted FODMAPS diet and has POTS symptoms. To be perfectly honest, as my daughter has pointed out, she has kept to mostly healthy snacks since arriving. The downside - she's already lost weight which means there will be clothes shopping in our future.

Morning Attempt at 5K

I used to be able to walk a 5K every morning in 45 minutes when I lived in NoHo, played Ingress, and was maintaining my weight between 160-170lbs (ish). After a … conversation over the weekend and much nagging, I have been taking Pluto out with me. Zoe doesn’t do cold and she doesn’t walk as fast as she did 3-5 years ago.

Menu plan Monday: Keep It Going

September 17, 2018
Well, color me surprised. An impression was made after doing the 3-Day Refresh. We feel a bit lighter and our brains aren't in total revolt anymore. We planned some of the meals out on the train yesterday, now I just need to go grocery shopping or have someone do it for me.

Can I lose 42lbs by the time I'm 43? 
My Fitbit stats from the time I started using one. 

The weight has kept creeping up on me, despite weight training. At one point I hit my almost interim goal weight and decided to be happy between 165lbs and 170lbs, allowing for water weight and the monthly ups and downs that come from being a woman, but then the creep started and never stopped.
