Vegan Update: Week 2

Happy Monday!  We are almost halfway through a month of vegan and we’re still here and still vegan!  Here’s our weekly update on what we’ve been eating and how we’re feeling. I would say around day 10 was the first time I didn’t want to eat a vegan meal.  I wasn’t craving anything specific like pizza or queso…I just didn’t want another salad.  But I have found with eating in general…once you start, you’ll end up satisfied.  So I had quinoa, refried beans, and some sautéed veggies and it was fine!  I am hovering around 5-6 pounds lost which is great for me.  I don’t have a lot of weight to lose; I just want to take off what I […]

Help Me Reach My Goal!

If you read my New Year, New Goals post, you saw that one of my major New Year’s resolutions was to volunteer/give back more.  This coming week I have two things lined up, and for one of them I need YOUR help!

New Year, New Want List

Happy Wednesday!  This is probably the first full week back to the grind for most people…how’s it going??  I’m on the opposite schedule as I worked all through the holidays and since the new year I have been CHILLING.  Well, not really chilling because I don’t ever chill, but I haven’t been going to the store and have been getting my life in order!  That includes some fun things like trips to Ikea and 8 trips to Target and some not fun things like reviewing my year-end P&L for Boem line by line. Is anyone else obsessing over all the cute clothes coming out right now?!  It’s making me want a vacation STAT.  Lance and I have ZERO vacations on […]
