  • Agreed with you on that one. Also I can't drink anymore even if I wanted to. I took a year-long break from drinking because I wasn't into it anymore. After I started drinking again (not excessively, just 1-3 drinks on a night out) I would get hungover, in a fog, and extremely depressed for 3-4 days. I guess after going…
  • Unpopular opinion: I don't really like fries and I don't think they're worth the calories. I hate stuffing. I even made my own for a couple of years and tried cornbread stuffing at my friend's Thanksgiving party last year and...nope, still just salty, soggy bread. Also, why would someone ruin perfectly good cornbread by…
  • Breakfast: didn't have Lunch (at local diner...different diner in different town from yesterday): *Panini with grilled chicken, goat cheese, arugula, tomato, red onion, and pesto...very good. *Instead of fries (I don't really like fries TBH), I got a side salad with mixed greens, tomato, cucumber, red onion, and creamy…

  • I really like the Barilla red lentil pasta and have it several times a week. It tastes good with or without sauce, has a lot of protein and other nutrients, and it's frequently on sale at my supermarket. I do also have wheat pasta, although I get whole-wheat.
  • I have all of these in my refrigerator right now and they tend to be the ones I buy. All of these are fortified as well. Silk unsweetened soy milk (either regular or vanilla) -- Good for protein, tastes good, versatile. Planet Oat extra creamy unsweetened oat milk -- I'm not really a fan of oat milk by itself but it is the…

Also fish oil and…
  • A lot of people can't bike in their area because the roads are unsafe. Also sometimes it's impossible to bike due to weather conditions. As for exercise bikes, we have the BH Fitness S1Ri recumbent exercise bike. We got it for around $500 I think (?) from a local exercise equipment store (Black Friday sale). We've had it…
  • This is why I post things on Craigslist free section instead of donating. I noticed my local Goodwill donation center has a massive dumpster out back full of things. With online free listings you can give away stuff that donation centers might not necessarily take because they can't resell them quickly, and you know that…
  • The "scrooge" thing is a bit ridiculous...like, sorry for wanting different things than what someone else wants? They're free to celebrate, or not celebrate, however they want and should allow you to do the same. Your holiday plans sound really nice and low-stress :) It's good to be able to actually enjoy the holiday…
  • I know what you mean. I've never been a fan of Christmas for personal reasons, and I feel even more "over it" this year. We have our tree up (it's a 2-foot tree, since that's what we have closet space for). We had a small and simple Thanksgiving dinner that took about 90 minutes to make. Not sure if we will do much for…

Also unsweetened iced tea. Snack:…

  • Thank you!! That stuff has been there for months not being used, so I'm happy it's finally gone. I may even list the bike for sale next week. Yesterday I took pictures of it and the accessories that go with it for the listing. I also read about half of one of the books from the pile, and decided I wasn't into it. Then…

  • More progress today! *Donated bag of nonperishables to food pantry *Cancelled gym membership *I actually realized that I already knew what kitchen items I wanted to get rid of, so instead of waiting until the end of the year, I listed those on Craigslist free section (except for the tabletop oven since I still need it).…
  • Update on decluttering gains...got rid of a lot of stuff today: *Metal rolling cart -- gave away on Craigslist *A few craft and activity kits -- gave away on Craigslist *Closet hanging organizer -- gave away on Craigslist *Plastic storage container -- There's an area in my apartment building where people put stuff they…
