My Nutrition Goals – Staying on Track

You know when people talk about how girls love bad boys? Some girls just love a guy who’s a jerk. You know he’s a jerk and that he hurts you, but you keep on goin’ back to him. It’s like you crave his approval or something. I don’t exactly like bad boys (my boyfriend is … Continue reading

When Life Hands You Lemons.. And Limes..

To say that I’ve been having a tough time lately would be the understatement of the year. And, speaking of years, to say that I’ve been having tough year is…also an understatement.

Workouts Lately: An Unattainable Goal?

What an election night. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to watch election returns like a nerd like I usually do, because I ended up helping T-Man finish up and get his GOTV canvassers all squared away for the end of the campaign.

Making a Meal Plan, Part 1

Making a Meal Plan, Part 1

Something strange happened the other day. That is my boyfriend expressing interest in making a meal plan. This coming from a guy whose impulsive eating habits rival the Cookie Monster’s.
