Today’s Workout: A nice session.


More desk peddler for today. I had a webinar and doing the peddler made it bearable. I haven’t been trying for long but I have already noticed my hip pain is lessened since I’ve been moving around more. I was really worried something was seriously wrong and I do plan to talk to my doctor about it anyway but I’m really happy about that.

I didn’t have time to make lunch and since the place across the street actually lowered their price on their salad (they’re still smaller than they used to be), I decided to get one of those. For dinner, I needed to use up the meat and veggies I was not going to use for Thanksgiving and the leftover rice. I doubt Uncle Roger would approve of my beef fried rice but I liked it and had plenty leftover for lunch tomorrow. All in all, not a bad day.

Today’s Workout: I did it, sorta


I’m back to the desk peddler for a little bit while I get my energy back up. Next week, I’ll go back to the treadmill.

I did prep food with the intention of getting up early to run but I just didn’t have the energy. And once dinner rolled around, I had even less energy and ate some snacks instead of cooking a meal. I feel like I need a day where I either get up and be super productive the entire day or a say where I sleep all day to reset myself. Maybe over the weekend, I’ll do both.

Also, I’m back to selling things on eBay. So, if you’re looking for nerdy and geeky items, click here and check out what I’ve listed so far. There will be more as things get sold and I am also planning to list some of my handmade items there.

Today’s Workout: Successful prepping


I’m working my way through PMS right now where I want to just eat everything in front of me. I’m always hungry so, I need to be as active as possible to balance that out. And when I say “hungry” I mean my stomach growling not just feeling a little snacky.

Now that it’s cooler, I have no problem putting the oven on. I made some salmon on Sunday and had plenty to use as leftovers for my lunch today. Usually with all that rice I’d be too full for a big dinner but nope. Since I felt like I was starving, I made myself a big salad with tuna for some filling protein. Even though I passed 1200 calories, I still felt hungry later on in the night. It’s super annoying to feel this out of control when my hormones are all over the place.

Today’s Workout: More lunch box fun

wp-1695259756575Yup, almost at a full hour! My thighs were trembling! Very awesome. All about the good kind of pain that comes from hard work.

Another prepped lunch in one of the lunch boxes my kid refuses to use. I made myself a salad to go with the steak and pasta but it was so much food, I didn’t need dinner. It was WAY too much. I’m already contemplating different types of meals to put in this thing; maybe rice, meat and veggies in the bottom and salad in the top. I think that would be fun. Those little rocks are actually Trader Joe’s Maple Fudge. They are VERY sweet, at least to me who’s cut out a lot of sugar from my diet. Yes, despite eating a toaster pastry. I only have juice or soda once or twice a YEAR and of course the odd dessert product here or there. It’s all water and unsweetened tea for me most days. I don’t find it boring. There are plenty of flavors of seltzer and again, Trader Joe’s comes through with their plain green tea and blueberry pomegranate green tea. They are delicious and super refreshing.

Today’s Workout: That’s not right…

While I’d love to take credit for the length of this workout but my smartwatch froze around the 45 minute mark and I had to restart it, wait till it properly loaded, then stop the workout. I mean, I did get my steps in, did my squats and crunches, and got my heartrate up in this biking session so, I count it as a win.

As for food, it wasn’t anything special. I went to bed early all prepared to get up early to make my breakfast and prep my lunch only to linger in bed wondering why my alarm isn’t going off. Turns out, I forgot to plug in my phone. I had enough time to rush through my routine, grab a Kind bar and a pack of ramen, and run out of the house. Dinner was the rest of the leftover wings that my kid decided he didn’t wanna eat (after I made them spicy for HIM but whatever). Tomorrow, I’ll make sure to set everything up so I don’t have a mishap like this again and can properly prepare.

Today’s Workout: More time


I’m staying longer on the desk peddler thinking that perhaps it would shake something loose and the scale would start moving again. I’ve been thinking about doing more cardio once I get home but I do need some time for more body weight workouts and weight training; which I have mostly remembered to do every day. It may not be in an app but I do at least 50 crunches and 50 squats to get those muscles working.

I haven’t gotten back in the habit of waking up for a run on my late nights (I’m getting there, I just need to stop staying up late to write/edit) but I did sit and have lunch before I went to work. I made myself a salad after prepping my dinner for the itaki lunch box. I had one of those bars for breakfast so, the day wasn’t bad!

Today’s Workout: Ah well…


I fully intended to just do running for awhile but nah, it didn’t work out that way. I’m not too broken up about it. I’ll do it when I do it and that’s that. The desk peddler will have to do for now and I’m getting in more steps every day.


A friend of mine gave me some Kind bars and I knew they would be perfect for a quick breakfast. It was just the right amount for me to be hungry for my salad at lunch time but not be starving. I think the combination of radish and red onion was a little much but not bad! It was a very filling salad. For dinner, the child requested pasta and since I had a can of diced tomatoes, I threw together something quick. I probably should have shared the chicken I made with this but, I gave it all to my child. He said he was super hungry.

All in all, this was a good day. I still need to get in the habit of not hitting snooze so much and having time to make a real breakfast.

Today’s Workout: Remember Bobby McFerrin?


This session felt calf heavy so, tomorrow I need to focus more on my lower belly and thighs to keep things even. I was able to read some ARCs meaning there will be more book reviews posted soon.

I actually had three meals today. I didn’t have time to cook breakfast, so I grabbed some D-Plus bread on my way out of the house. Lunch was my Itaki usual and dinner, I was so excited for this salad. I hit up the farmer’s market over the weekend and got some beautiful tomatoes. And I don’t even feel bad about that; I am entitled to some simple pleasures in this capitalist hellscape we live in.

Today’s Workout: Not bad…


It was kinda easy to do the Wirk Peddler today. I think I need to up my speed since it’s already on the highest resistance.

It was a regular type day for food. Not every day comes along with some big revelation or anything particularly interesting. Especially since I’m doing all this writing, that’s basically all that’s on my brain these days. I’m usually on the ball with things like dusting, sweeping the floors, and laundry but I’ve fallen behind. I do have some time off coming up after Camp NaNoWriMo is over so, I’ll be able to catch up then.

Today’s Workout: Pay attention…


This was one of those days where at first I kept checking the clock to make sure I go to 40 minutes only to stop paying attention and end up going way over. I mean… Its not like it hurts me to burn extra calories. I’ll take any bump in activity.

For lunch, I prepped my usual meat and veggies but it was so filling, I ended up snacking on popcorn for dinner. I’ll probably snack on that huge bowl tomorrow.

I did pack a LOT of the veggies in that container when I prepped my lunch so next time I won’t put so much in there. I felt very over full. The popcorn is just powdered garlic and some salt (that I went easy on since I’m trying not to eat so much of that). Yes, there’s some melted butter. I still didn’t feel like it was that much of a bad thing to eat since I can’t eat very much of it.
