an hour a day

…or sometimes 40-45 minutes. For 30 days straight, no days off. That’s what it took to get these results. In this post, I’d like to share with you how in greater detail.

eggsperienced

It’s now Day 3 of my foray into daily blogging. I haven’t run out of steam yet, but I could very easily fall back into TV-mode and ignore this — OMG, HOUSE OF CARDS IS BACK ON NETFLIX — fighting to keep focus… Luckily I’m writing about food and, mainly, the impressive breakfast I had […]

I love the lights.

They remind me of life as a teenager. When ’twas the holiday season I’d move my pillow, blanket, and Elise (beloved stuffed lamb) into the living room as my temporary headquarters. Dino, my lovable feline rascal, would run from the side to the front window, paws up against and nose poking out of the blinds, […]

Gains in Losses

About a month after I gave birth, I ordered ALL my summer clothes online in a size medium, and gave myself three months maximum to fit into them all. I’m happy to report that it’s mission accomplished 🙂 Let me reverse and tell you a little bit more about my recovery (if you haven’t read […]

To my one and only

You’re the kind and loyal counterpart to my impatient, sarcastic, and cynical being You’re the voice laughing identically with and at me, because you share my silly sense of humour You always forgive me when I’m being mean and angry and pick on you when I’m bored You’re the voice of reason and stay collected, […]

Did you ever dream what you wanted to be, what you needed to be What you would do for ME? Did you ever give the envelope a shove, place yourself high above HIM? Did he slap away your hand as you drowned in the sand Bring poison to your place bearing an obscene face Delicate […]
