Review of the Year

December 17th, 2007 · 10 Comments

Well, the bad news is that I’m still sick. This was Day of Near Silence #2 while I tried to rest my throat. Thank God for writing. But the weekend was certainly not a total wash. The good news is that I have hit a thirty pound loss this year. Early this weekend, I first […]

Slowing down

December 14th, 2007 · 3 Comments

I can’t believe it’s been 10 days since my last post, but then again, I guess I can.  As many of you also have been lately, I’ve been running hither and thither to various work, social, exercise, and medical engagements.  Despite tiring myself out thoroughly,  I haven’t slept any better than I usually do–which is […]

(Today it’s actually a bit lower, but I’m going with my Saturday weigh-in.)  To weigh 175 pounds has been a goal that’s been stuck in my head for some reason; 175 seems like […]

Mind (and Rice) Expansion

November 24th, 2007 · 1 Comment

One great thing about eating gluten-free and allergen-free–yes, there are a few great things! Let’s focus on those, Sally!–is that I am not nearly as tempted to eat all the holiday foods that people have lying around this time of year. Brownies and cookies and cakes at work and at parties: I look at them […]

Roasted Veggies & Pan-Fried Goat Cheese Salad

November 7th, 2007 · 8 Comments

This salad was a staple in our house last fall and winter, but things have changed since then. One thing that’s changed is that my body can now tolerate balsamic vinegar as long as it’s not in large doses; that means I’m able to add it to things like these veggies that I roasted. Another […]
