11 Finds for the Father in Your Life on Father’s Day

Dude, did you know Father’s Day is upon us? I was totally oblivious to this until this morning when, while not-at-all-desperatly looking for my Lindt milk pralines, I came across the cards isle at CVS. Who would have ever thought that I would have a reason to let go of the fact that Hubbyloo did not get me anything this Mother’s Day? Continue reading


Unboring My Routine

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

What is your reaction to the unknown? I like to hang onto the comfort of the known. I frequently tell myself “Why ruin this by trying a different way?” I now realize that I don’t remember myself being any other way. As spontaneous as I was (still am actually – I mean, I was the one who packed a one year old and flew over to Grand Cayman to visit a friend) in terms of activities, travels and entertainment Continue reading


Day #7 of What-Used-To-Be-A-14-Day Sugar Detox

Breakfast - Smoked Salmon Roasted Red Pepper Scramble

Breakfast – Smoked Salmon Roasted Red Pepper Scramble

Half-way through the first week I canceled the second week of meal delivery. For good reasons: on Saturday will go to see Billy Joel at the Bowl and Memorial Weekend will fall right in the middle of that week, so why waste the money? (Untold, yet obvious reason: Continue reading


Day #6 – 14-Day Sugar Detox

It’s become clear that the food delivered for the sugar detox has changed over time. The previous time I used Wholesome2Go for this weight-loss program, I remember (I don’t blame you if you don’t trust my memory, I don’t either… I checked the annotated menu printouts which I kept Continue reading


Day #5 – 14-Day Sugar Detox

It was a so-and-so day. It seems to me that last time I did this detox with Wholesome2Go the food was better. Now… it could be that, OR… it could be that I am not as mentally prepared for a detox this time around as I was last year. Back then I had 17 extra pounds that I needed to rid of, and lots of prenatal clothes to get back into. Continue reading


Day #4 – 14-Day Sugar Detox

Today – uneventful. I was too busy watching Copiloo to be tempted to try anything haram.

The Florentine Omelet I had this morning was the best breakfast so far. Lunch consisted of a Black Bean and Chicken Salad – quite delish, too, very likely thanks to the avocado dressing. As I think about the snacks I had today, I realize that Saturday is probably the best Continue reading


14-Day Sugar Detox T -1

Summer is around the corner and although I look gaaauh-geous in bikini, I strive for better. This four-pack needs to go up a couple notches. Hehe

In addition to getting back on the yoga mat, I’ll make a serious attempt to improve my eating habits. To guide me in the right direction I turned again to Wholesome2Go, an LA meal delivery service. I tried their sugar detox program last year and in spite of my breaking of the core rule – no sugar Continue reading
