I wanted to jot down a couple more thoughts about the macro tracking stuff! 1) Eating the same foods frequently makes macro tracking much easier. (I think I said this already recently.) 2) The hardest part isn't actually getting in all that protein, it's getting in all that protein without going over on carbs or… Continue reading Couple more misc. macros thoughts
Ahhh, a 3-day weekend. What a lovely thing. It really was so very nice. ESPECIALLY because it was a 3-day weekend minus visitors, holiday prep, stress, etc. We had a very chill, low key weekend (for our standards), though we still did plenty. I was really wishing this morning that the weekend could just keep… Continue reading +1 vote to continue the weekend

We may be the only people with our Christmas tree and all decorations still up (honestly, only because I just haven't had any time to take them down yet). Christmas movies and music came to an end… Continue reading Christmas 2022
