Document Your Life #141 – What I Ate This Morning

We’re having our master bathroom renovated and it’s taking forever! It’s been over a week already and they’re still not done…but they’re working on it! After spending all last week working out of the house (and going slightly crazy), it’s nice to get back to the office. We’re taking turns at being away from the […]

Document Your Life #109 – There’s No Such Thing as a Free Thing

There’s no such thing as a free…anything. This morning, I went to a “free” seminar on Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas cruise ship called Detox For Health & Weight-loss, but it turned out that it wasn’t really free.

Document Your Life #34 – Counting Calories with the MyFitnessPal App

I’m back to counting again. I mean, counting calories. After 2 or 3 (?) recently disrupted and recently failed attempts at the Hormone Reset Diet, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s just not right for me. I know, I know. Counting calories is insanely hard and requires a lot of work and is a […]
