What happened when I went vegan for a week

Never in a million years did I think I’d go vegan. While I love vegetables and all the nutrition that comes with them, I also believe that animal protein and some animal fats are a highly nutritious and bioavailable form of nutrients for many people. Furthermore, I believe in bioindividuality, in that everyone is different …

Weighing In

Skyler had a check-up this morning, complete with another part of her flu shot, which is always fun! It was fairly uneventful (though you would think from her wailing that they were torturing her with 1,000 needles), but she got weighed and measured and she has gone through quite the growth spurt!

Resolution

Last year, I didn’t make any. I was already on the quest to lose the baby weight, so I didn’t really feel like it counted, and that was enough of a project that I didn’t want to add any new goals to last year. But now I’m here another year later and still haven’t lost …

I’m blogging about this …

Lettuce wraps, spatulas, and canoes

1) Jimmy John’s lettuce wraps are my new favorite thing! Jimmy’s always has good sandwiches, but as I’m [still] attempting to get back down to my desired weight, I try to do the low-carb thing, so sandwiches are usually not an option. I know lettuce wraps are nothing new as an alternative to bread or …
