A pretty plateau and not the kind I'm experiencing :)

Plateaus

Today’s motivation: “If changing our bodies was easy, then everyone would be walking around with a six-pack.” Having undertaken weight loss regimens many times, I know the familiar frustration of the weight loss plateau. It sucks, people. I’m not overly surprised at it with the current scheme that I’m on, my body is simply not […] Read more…

it's a little less intimidating

24 Days and Counting

Another update: Day 24 – totally bizarre (but not so bizarre) bump in the road of the total fast diet (and by total, it is medically supervised with protein shakes, soups and an occasional 150 or less calorie protein bar) — my weight actually swung up 3 pounds in one day. The only change in […] Read more…

looks yummy. taste....yummy-esque

Massive Detox: Update

Day 9: Some interesting things: I’m getting cold more easily. Keeping sweaters around. This is quite odd because I’m always running too hot. Since my body isn’t burning food for fuel, I suppose it’s just not heating up as much I didn’t have a great day today. My tummy rebelled violently at around 1 pm. […] Read more…

Visions of Sugarplums (well, fashion, actually)

Pinterest is chock full of yummy things: food, desserts, fashion, houses, etc. Funny that now that I’m on a serious not-eating regimen, the food items look even more delicious I’m turning my attention to a healthier inspiration – fashion I’d like to wear (or at least envision within the realm of possibility) – when this […] Read more…

yum yum. 10 weeks of "food"

The Adventure Begins … UCLA RFO Program

DAY 1 FOLLOW UP: I’m going to do my follow up posts on this original post so as not to crowd my blog with this one slice of my life in early 2015. I wasn’t really hungry on my first day until late at night. I found it a bit hard to fall asleep b/c […] Read more…

prepping for baked eggs. yum.

Christmas Deliciousness

The holidays are synonymous with good food and wine. I love it. This year, I tried many many recipes from Food52, every single one was fabulous. I nominate Food52 for the best recipe website going. For baking, my favorites are Joy the Baker, Sweetapolita, and Sprinklebakes. For inspiration, I love David Lebovitz and the ubiquitous […] Read more…

It’s Christmas!

I love the season. It’s time to deck the halls. Truth be told, I started very early with lights outside as I thought I’d be traveling during the first part of December. As luck would have it, I was able to stay home thanks to plumbing issues (not great). All is now calm and bright. […] Read more…

so delicious.

Fall means apples, right?

Fall is a funny time in Los Angeles: not really cool, kind of hot, weird weather patterns. But, there is a certain je ne sais quoi in the air, particularly in the evening. Just a hint of crispness that those of us who love fall and winter weather can hang onto as a promise of […] Read more…

Christmas in August

  People – it’s 13 weeks until the holidays (Thanksgiving-ish). Now, I know that I’m rushing it, but there’s SO much to do. I’m approaching Christmas this year with a theme of White, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Copper, Sage green, and succulents. My pinterest board of inspiration is here: Christmas 2014 Inspiration I have another Christmas […] Read more…
