Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness


As warned, lunch was leftover stir fry. Totally boring for you guys but fabulous for me. There was about .5 cups brown rice, lots of veggies and a couple slices of fried tofu. I totally brought my chopsticks. I’m sure the adolescents had a field day with that one. Remember field day? Ugh, I hated running around having people hold up my feet as I scurried across the field on my hands. And the trust wall??? Teachers really need to get a grip on what activities are emotionally scarring for the chubby kids. Breakfast was coffee and a pear.

My friend Sarah is taking me out to dinner tonight for my birthday. We are going to Sunset Bar and Grill, a restaurant that has an extensive menu with tons of bad options. I scanned the menu to see what I’ll be up against but haven’t decided on a particular dish. There are several veggie options so that won’t be an issue.

  3. Happy Birthday lady!! I love Sunset. I like the mac & cheese without the sausuge skewer, but my absolute fave dish there is the peanut butter and fluff with french fries. Have fun!

    • Hey Liz, it’s hard to explain about the edamame but definitely worth it. Order it next time you go out for sushi… you’ll love. As for the couscous, I think they’re technically pasta so they are GOOD! And so easy to cook..

      • Thanks!!!!! I will keep that in mind. As for sushi, im not a seafood lover… you I hate the way it looks the same as it did after it was already cooked…the texture bothers me too….maybe ill try a veggie roll. have a great night!

  5. I love eating with chopsticks! It makes it more fun, instead of just wolfing down the food without thinking about it. When is your birthday?! Mine’s Wednesday!

  7. and that restaurant could be the reason I gained 12 lbs my first semester of grad school…yeah, let’s blame it on Sunset…not the fact that I ate shit everyday and didn’t exercise.
