Hello beloved friends. Did you know that you are my accountability partners without even doing a thing? I don’t even have to know who’s reading this to feel a sense of responsibility when I make a declaration, or a promise. It might backfire on me from time to time, but it’s still so therapeutic to try. I’m going to do a week-long reset, starting today. … Continue reading Pick your poison.
Trudging through these days. That‘s a word, right? Trudging? I am really struggling this week. My beloved coffee has been ripped away from me. I‘m trying to heal my digestion and this is the next step, along with all the other things I‘ve eliminated. This is rough. And so not fair. And what‘s even funnier is ~ it really doesn‘t have anything to do with … Continue reading Day 15 & 16.
I feel like this is a milestone day! Two weeks we’ve been on this plan, and we haven’t slipped up once! I’m SHOCKED. No one is more shocked than I am. We have passed a few difficult tests, kind of like the Fire Swamp in The Princess Bride? Except our Rodents of Unusual Size are cocktail parties and Wednesday night church choir wine breaks. HA! … Continue reading Day 14!!!
These are the hardest days, apparently. That’s what the book says, and it’s also what a good friend of mine says as well. She said she was super down on Day 11. Well, here we are at Day 11, and I’m ready to fight through! This post is a little longer than normal. I might need to use you all as my therapist throughout these … Continue reading Day 10 & 11.
Tomorrow marks a week! YAHOO! How is everyone doing? I just have a few things to report today: I feel like a kid. Kid-like energy, kid-like excitement for things, kid-like hunger, like how much I cannot WAIT for dinner. Apparently, my breath stinks. The hub let me know. It’s either all the salads I’m eating, or maybe it’s that Keto thing where your mouth feels … Continue reading Day 6.
This is easy. And just an idea. It’s that yummy Cold Sesame Salad from a few days ago…https://pixyskansascity.com/2019/01/06/cold-sesame-salad-w-sunshine-sauce/ And the Spicy Thai Meatballs, heated up from the freezer…https://pixyskansascity.com/2019/01/06/spicy-thai-meatballs/ Some Bibb lettuce, crunchy red pepper, raw cashews, and some hot sauce. And you have some pretty yummy lettuce wraps! Okay, I’m getting weird. I’ve been posting too many recipes and I can’t write anything intelligent. Till … Continue reading Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps.
This was the most simple dinner, and the most delicious. What does that tell ya? Quality ingredients RULE! That’s wild-caught Alaskan sockeye from Costco. It cost an arm and a leg, but I cut it into more than 12 3-oz portions, and froze them individually. I put the salmon steaks on foil, drizzled them with olive oil and lemon juice, and sprinkled with seasoning salt. … Continue reading Grilled Salmon w/Greek Salad.
This has been the hardest of the 5 days. I’m so cranky, so angry, so frustrated. I want to kill all the things. I have serious road rage. I have yelled at the hub, and the hub has barked back (which he never does). And I hear the hardest days are yet to come ~ yikes! But for me, the weekends are always going to … Continue reading Day 5.
