  • Happy birthday Bella!!!!! And Connie, continue to get some rest and take care of yourself. What you are dealing with sounds miserable so feel better soon. I am just trying to get through the day. I did something to my back a few days ago. Yesterday my pain level was pretty high. Today it does feel better, but still…
  • I do salads quite often for lunch (and less often for dinner), but I don't have recipes per say. This week's is simple: Romaine Grape tomatoes Mini cucumbers (less seeds so I prefer them) Bell Pepper Red Onion Chicken Blue Cheese Dressing (whatever I feel like that day... yesterday I had Bolthouse Farms ranch, today I am…
  • I had lion's mane mushrooms for the first time last night. Really good. Especially sauteed with some teriyaki sauce. The flavor of the mushrooms with the sauce worked amazing together.
  • So I am still obsessed with my hibachi rice bowls. Made them again last night and will have leftovers tonight (getting my hair cut and colored after work). I did chicken breast, shrimp, sweet carrots, lions mane mushrooms (which were amazing in the teriyaki sauce), and onions over rice. Then put way too much yum yum sauce…
  • Whelp... gonna give calorie counting another try this week over Weight Watchers. I realized I am often under eating by quite a bit with the point system. I also think that while the point system really pushes fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins it really demonizes other stuff like bread or even the occasional treat. So…
  • I am not weighing this weekend. I have been too fatigued to do much of anything, much less work out and cook. Been going to be about 8:30pm and sleeping through to my alarms. Just been eating whatever I crave, which is bad for my health and for my wallet. Thinking next week I just need to keep meals super simple with no…
  • *gentle hugs* to all those with injuries or illness. I am just tired. Feeling okay. Mood is okay. But I have been exhausted the last couple of days. Thinking the weekend insanity and projects may have worn me out more then I originally believed. I have been sleeping really well, but I just stay tired. My body is so…
  • Tonight I am making a soba noodle bowl with shrimp, sugar snap peas, mushrooms, spinach, and green onion tossed with a thai almond sauce.
  • Yesterday: Breakfast: Mini bagel with cream cheese, 2 hardboiled eggs Lunch: Frozen shrimp pad thai, mixed berries, and some popcorn Dinner: Burrito bowl with chicken, peppers, onions, roasted corn, rice, avocado, salsa, and sour cream Dessert: Goldfish Movement: 1 walk outside for about 15 minutes total. My back and right…
  • Trying to figure out some ideas to put in a salad. Thinking next week lunches will be salads. Chicken will be my protein of choice because I will be having eggs with breakfast. I also am not a huge fan of fruit in salad.
  • Rough weekend both in general and with food. So didn't post those meals. Yesterday: Breakfast: Cinnamon roll Lunch: Rao's frozen lasagna Dinner: Burrito bowl with chicken, peppers, onions, roasted corn, rice, avocado, salsa, and sour cream Dessert: Almond croissant (my weakness) Movement: 2 walks outside for about 30…
  • I love fish, but I am picky about texture. Like, I enjoy Salmon, Red Snapper, Tilapia, Branzino... but I hate the texture of Cod. And I only like tuna either from a can OR raw, but not seared. Tonight I am making a burrito bowl with rice, chicken, roasted corn, peppers, onions, salsa, sour cream, and avocado.
  • Struggle bus day today. Yesterday was rough. I ended up having to run to Menards twice to exchange a deck box. The first time I got 9/10 of the way done only to realize that they had given me 2 front panels instead of a front and back. The second time I was taking everything else and found that the back panel had been…
  • Yesterday Bunnies: None at Breakfast Lunch: Blake's Shepards Pie frozen meal 🐰 plus a side of honeydew and strawberries 🐰🐰 Dinner: Frozen meal thingy of prime rib roast, mushrooms, and onions in gravy 🐰 over roasted potatoes 🐰and a side of roasted zucchini 🐰 Not many bunnies yesterday...
  • I miss tofu, especially with asian style dishes. Once my IC started to get bad in 2014, I realized soy was a trigger for it. So I had to cut it all out. Now I can have a little bit since I am in remission, but I still can't handle tofu. I guess it is just too much at one time.
  • Yesterday: Breakfast: 2 hardboiled eggs, english muffin with light butter and strawberry preserves Lunch: Blake's Shepard's Pie, honeydew, and strawberries Dinner: A frozen meal thingy with prime rib roast, onions, mushrooms, and gravy with roasted potatoes and zucchini Dessert: Small bowl of plain chips, mini ice cream…
  • Yesterday Bunnies: None at Breakfast Lunch: Healthy choice greek chicken power bowl 🐰🐰 plus a side of honeydew and strawberries 🐰🐰 (Very bunny lunch) Dinner: Hibachi with plain rice, carrots, mushrooms, onions, chicken, and shrimp 🐰🐰🐰 As for my plain rice... since it is the base for all sorts of yummy stuff I prefer to use…
  • Yesterday: Breakfast: 2 hardboiled eggs, english muffin with light butter and strawberry preserves Lunch: Healthy Choice Greek Chicken Power bowl, honeydew, and strawberries Snack: A small bag of pretzel combos Dinner: Hibachi bowl with plain rice, chicken, shrimp, carrots, and mushrooms topped with yum yum sauce Dessert:…
  • Been pretty motivated the last few days when it comes to moving my body. It has mostly been walking, but also did some seated dance cardio. And I 100% feel better for it. It has been helping my anxiety a lot because I am using the extra panic energy in a productive way. Super happy with it.
  • I am going to try and make it easy on myself so maybe I can do it. For breakfasts I will do hardboiled eggs and some sort of carb. Either fruit, yogurt, english muffins, or mini bagels. For lunches I will do either frozen meals (with extra steamed veggies) or salads. Both with a side of fruit. For dinners I will follow the…
  • Yesterday: Breakfast: 2 hardboiled eggs, english muffin with light butter and strawberry preserves Lunch: Dole Sunflower Crunch Chopped Salad, honeydew, and strawberries (forgot how much I loved this salad) Dinner: Hibachi bowl with plain rice, chicken, shrimp, carrots, and mushrooms topped with yum yum sauce Dessert:…
  • Yesterday Bunnies: None at Breakfast Lunch: Salad with chopped kale, cabbage, carrots, and other veggies I can't remember (it's early). 🐰🐰🐰🐰 plus a side of honeydew and strawberries 🐰🐰 (Very bunny lunch) Dinner: Hibachi with plain rice, carrots, mushrooms, onions, chicken, and shrimp 🐰🐰🐰 So total bunnies 🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰 (9). One…
  • I would love to get more into doing it this way, even just a couple weeks at a time. The getting started is the hard part. By the time the weekend comes around, I have so much to do and I am so tired. And I have no real help cause it's me and the cats. Sorry... I am just feeling really frustrated about it right now.
  • I am struggling with meal ideas. It's like nothing sounds good or I am just too tired to care. I used to love meal planning and cooking. Now it feels like a chore. One thing I am liking is doing bowls. This week (today actually) I am making hibachi chicken and shrimp bowls. The base will be plain rice and I will top it…
  • Yesterday: Breakfast: 2 hardboiled eggs, english muffin with light butter and strawberry preserves Lunch: French Onion soup, bowl of honeydew melon and strawberries Dinner: Tilapia, roasted asparagus, side salad with Italian dressing Dessert: 2 mini ice cream sandwiches, bubble tea Movement: 3 walks outside totaling about…
  • I made whole wheat spaghetti with sauce last night... but the sauce had ground beef, diced zucchini, and diced mushrooms in it. So I call it a win. This morning though I am not feeling great. Really fatigued. Sipping on a Sprite and nibbling on Cheez Its because my stomach doesn't like me. So not a healthy breakfast, but…
  • I am just NE of Indianapolis. Farmers Market starts Saturday actually, but it's not corn season quite yet. So will have to wait on that a bit longer. I love the weekly market. I go every Saturday if I am able to do so. The produce and meats are just amazing and I have my favorite farmers. The blackberries from the…
  • Summer sweet corn here in Indiana is like a religion. It is so so good. I have it at least once a week when the corn stall at the farmer's market is there. Just amazing. I roast it in the oven in the husk at 350 for about 45 minutes. A little butter... a little salt...
  • While I enjoy getting holiday pay for federal and state holidays, I found I don't enjoy having a random day off during the week that is not a Monday or Friday. We were off yesterday for Primary Elections so today feels like a second Monday. Ugh. Really struggling with energy. Plus, it is public service employee…

  • Connie... take care of yourself dear. You and your family has been through so much of late! Bella... I know how you feel. It seems like one "cheat" (I actually hate that word but it is early on a Friday and I have not woken up fully yet) leads to another... and to another... and to another. It is not something that I have…
