So You’ve Been Eating Healthy…

…NOT ME!  I certainly haven’t been eating caramel corn – drizzled in dark chocolate.  Nope, not me. Carb loading?  No never, not me. On Christmas Eve I definitely didn’t order the healthy salmon and asparagus entree – and then follow it up with a healthy dose of Tiramisu.  Not me! But today is a new day.  I’m back to the gym, and back to eating right.   I thought I could make it through the holidays without giving in.  This girl didn’t make it, nope not me! ...more

The Comfort of Apple Crisp

It's one of those times you try to stay busy as you flow about the kitchen avoiding politics, sex, and religion. You listen quietly attempting to make polite conversation. You make a simple joke and receive raised eyebrow. You open the cupboard and the Tupperware explodes out across the floor. The facade of the good housewife has been revealed and you get the burning look of disapproval. It's these looks that tell you that you were never quite suitable, never approved of, and never will be a member of their inclusive tribe. ...more

I've accomplished the unthinkable

I’ve already told everybody I work with, to keep the candy away from me. Today when I got to work, there was a handful of sweets on my desk. I stared at them – Thinking about how yummy they would taste. I wanted to eat them all....more

Ten To Dos in December 2011

I can't believe I didn't manage to do more of my November to dos than I did. I thought for sure I could knock out eight, at least. Life has a way of wreaking havoc with my intentions, that happens to you, right? December will be better! 1) Send out my Christmas cards during the first week of the month. 2) Clean off my desktop, my folders and my bookmarks

Non-Fiction YA Recommendations

Someone on Facebook asked for Non-fiction YA recommendations and rather than trying to put a list in a comment on Facebook, I thought I'd just write a post here (and ask y'all to add to the list in the comments.) Here's what I like (though they aren't necessarily new books):

Avoiding Sugar During the Holidays

I am very proud of myself. I managed to get through an ENTIRE Halloween season without eating a single piece of candy. For me, that's really big. What's huge, though, is the fact that I didn't even realize it until the day after the holiday. That means I didn't even think about candy for almost all of October. ...more
I'm definitly battling sugar right now!!! Ahh it's so hard. I love it. But I've recently ... more
