Finally, I have some time to cook a few meals for the family this week. Guess where I came to find recipes? That's right... right here! By the way, apostrophes are extremely important. Did you know that when you Google "Richards BBBWW" without the apostrophe you get "Shanice Richards Porn Videos"? Definitely not what I … Continue reading Using the Blog-Site
So, I gained a pound last week. I'm not happy with myself, especially since this extra pound made itself known at my birthday weigh-in -- not exactly the kind of present I was hoping for. Could it possibly be because I've been eating stuff like this? Gee, and I was hoping that the "light" vodka … Continue reading Something Fishy
Like Zee, I've been buying new cookbooks, hoping for some quick and easy recipes that fit with the healthy eating plan. Somehow, though, I always pick meals that require lots of chopping and/or a sous chef! I apparently do not have the fastest chop skills in the world. Wonderful segue into this screenshot of Chop, … Continue reading New Recipe Book… More Ground Turkey!

If you'd told me even three years ago that I would be sharing recipes on-line, I wouldn't have believed you. First off, I do not enjoy cooking. And secondly, not only did I not participate in any social media or similar activities, but I had probably not even read a blog! Just goes to show … Continue reading Ground Turkey: Gobble It up
As it is St. Patrick's Day, I wanted to share a funny quote that I came across recently, by Irish actor and musician Alex Levine: Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: Alcohol, caffeine, sugar and fat! In my twenties, I did enjoy an Irish coffee once or twice … Continue reading Irish Coffee Hits the Four Food Groups!
Do you sabotage your own weight-loss efforts? I seem to do it every time I start a weight-loss program. I go along well for a few weeks, and then I completely go off the rails. Like this time. Everything seemed so easy. I lost 12 pounds in 4 weeks. And then... I don't know... there … Continue reading Self-Sabotage
We've been getting a little sick of chicken breast around here... although my hubby's taken to adding cubes of chicken breast to his curries, and sometimes fat-free plain Greek yoghurt too, which makes a nice change. But pork was on special at the grocery store last week. Now, whether pork is okay for weight loss … Continue reading Tired of Chicken? Put Pork on Your Fork!
A lot it seems! And it seems to be working its magic... two more pounds this week, for a total of 9.4 to date. Why is it that I was disappointed that I didn't make it to 10 pounds yet?
