Heat Wave Appetite (Recent What I Ate Wednesday Meals)


My appetite is definitely feeling affected by the heat. It’s not noticeable every day but some days, I’m noticing that I’m not as hungry. The thought of eating sometimes feels like too much in my stomach. I’ve even had a few moments where I think a smoothie sounds good and if you know me, you […]

What I Ate Wednesday 9/6/17

    It’s Wednesday! I’m linking up with Laura today for What I Ate Wednesday. 🙂 Breakfast: I am so proud of myself for remembering to get a picture of my post-run oatmeal bowl.

oatmeal in a jar

I burned a pot of oatmeal yesterday. Please don’t ask me how I managed to burn the oatmeal. I was sitting in the kitchen the entire time the oatmeal was cooking on the stove! I guess that I didn’t pay attention to my ratio of oats to water, not that I ever really do.  All I know is that […]

  Lots of good comments on yesterday’s quirky eating habits post. I am still working on responding but hope to reply today!

I am still working on responding to them but your thoughts on disordered eating and how it can start unintended are greatly appreciated.

  Oh, hi! I am posting more than I thought I would this week which is making me happy. While I still haven’t written the speech that I have to give Saturday during my son’s Bar Mitzvah service, at least I can find the words to type up these posts in order to chat with you. […]

  I apologize if you had any trouble logging into my site yesterday. From what I understand, my site was causing problems somewhere on the server so they shut it down on me and then had me do traumatic things in FTP in order to get it back. Please don’t ask me what I had to do or what […]
