1 Million Calories – Week 18

April 29 - We went to visit Annie’s family this past weekend, and I stayed within my calorie limit, but close to the max each day we were there. We didn’t get home until after midnight and the dog, as usual, woke me up at six in the morning, so I am very sleep...

1 Million Calories – Week 17

April 22 - Easter yesterday, what I had expected to be a glutton fest wasn’t. I actually didn’t go over my calories. This morning, I’m still recovering from my cold, sinus infection, flu or whatever this is and continues to be. I am tired and not at all focused, so I...

Aspartame and Me

Simply put, I can only do a little bit of aspartame before I am asking for a headache or worse, a migraine. The artificial non-saccharide sweetener is used in so many diet products that I have to be very careful. I enjoy sweet things and want to keep my calories in...

1 Million Calories – Week 13

https://youtu.be/iEUKeGsWf0k March 25 - This morning, I woke up and took the puppy out like normal, and once I got back to the apartment, I thought about what my food was going to look like today. I wasn’t hungry for breakfast, so I knew I was going to skip that,...

My Darker Mind

Yesterday, especially in the afternoon, I had a really rough day when it came to my depression. Despite being on medication that helps with most days, I really struggled last night. Depression is one of those things that I don't think people really understand and...
