Our daughter's portrait drawings...

My daughter, Catrina, has been working on more of her fantastic portrait drawings. You can see some of them, including her more recent works, on her gallery.

Oh, and in case you didn't know, we've been using her portrait of Norma Jeane Baker (AKA Marilyn Monroe) for the site logo for a while now... As you can see, Catrina has an affinity for classic movie stars and starlets.

Maybe Becoming Overweight Helped

I was a small child, a small teenager, and a small young adult. I had a horrible diet...mostly because I didn't know any better and neither did my parents. I didn't start gaining weight until I was about 26. Looking back I think that if I had never become fat I would never have cared about what I was eating. I would never have read a book about low-carbing. I would never have discovered how healthy a low-carb diet is (even for thin people).

So, maybe being overweight helped me discover what the human body really needs: healthy fats, protein, nutrients from veggies, and exercise. Maybe I would have never been able to see desserts as special occasion treats instead of everyday foods. Click here to continue reading, or leave a comment »

Meal Planning

I started my exercise routine on Friday (Jan 1). The routine is simply to walk every other day. My main goal with this is to create a habit. I don't care that I only walk 20-30 minutes at a moderate pace. I'll build my time and speed as I continue...little by little.

Now, I'm working on the eating portion. The first few days didn't go well at all. I know why.

1. I didn't eat enough protein
2. I didn't plan my meals ahead of time

It really helps to have an idea of what I want to eat at each meal. If I wait until I get hungry to think of something to eat then everything seems too complicated to prepare. I end up grabbing little nibbles and snacks which translates into more carbohydrates than I need and definitely not enough protein. Click here to continue reading, or leave a comment »
