Kanban board.

A few months ago, I was inspired by Dylan Wolf’s Kanban Board setup, and so I decided to implement one for myself. As I mentioned before, not only do I have daily chores and tasks I want to accomplish, but I also have Big Projects I want to take care of, and I thought a read more »

The Ant and the Grasshopper.

Sometimes, my husband annoys me just a little bit. I tend to plow through life at a break-neck speed. I have a to-do list a mile long every day — chores I want to try to tackle, projects I want to try to get done. As soon as I get home from work, I’m doing read more »

Out of balance.

I’m having a very difficult time focusing today. I’m having trouble focusing on my work and the projects I need to be making progress on for my day job. I’m having trouble finding the inspiration to write anything or even brainstorm ideas for a possible writing session later. I’m having trouble doing my mindfulness exercises read more »

Finding fun ways to move.

It’s difficult for me to find fun ways to move. I enjoy walking, because I find it a very mindful and meditative experience, but I often struggle with other types of exercise — I find them tedious and difficult, and I’ve never had much inclination to “push” myself further or to be really competitive with read more »

Update on the Anti-Diet

Two weeks ago, I decided I was going to try an approach to weight-loss referred to as The Anti Diet.

Baby spinach salad with tuna.

What was on the menu this week: Baby Spinach & Tuna salad Paired with Newman’s Own Organic Virgin Lemonade (LOVE this lemonade, but it is NOT a good pair with this particular salad, just FYI) (I got the idea for this recipe somewhere, but I’ve tweaked and played with it so much that I pretty read more »

Shrimp and grits.

What was on the menu last night: Shrimp & grits (yanked from this website about 52 Healthy Meals in 12 Minutes or Less that I found on Pinterest) Paired with: Killian’s Irish Red beer I doubled the recipe and made a few small changes: Prepare 1 cup quick-cooking grits according to package instructions. Meanwhile, combine read more »

Progress report.

Well, this progress report will be a little slapdash. I managed to leave my notebook with the post-it that contained my goals for the week at my friends’ house yesterday, so I’ll just have to let you know what I did in each category. 1. EAT: I think my goal was to limit my processed read more »

A photo a day in March.

So, I saw a couple of people participating in this over the month of February — most notably Jess at this tumblr (whom I discovered because the title of her tumblr closely resembles the title of my blog, and I have been delighted by that discovery ever since because she’s awesomesauce.) I decided I wanted read more »
