Mal, Murphy, and I just returned from a glorious trip to the dog park. We planned to go yesterday, but things got a little crazy in the afternoon, so we postponed our trip until today. It was definitely worth the wait though. Murphy had a blast!
The park included plenty of running.
(I still can’t figure out what exactly is happening in the photo below.)
The pug was definitely exhausted by the end of our trip.
He even passed out in the backseat of the car on the way home. I guess our trip to the park was a success!
Before we left for the park, I made pancakes for breakfast. I’ve been eating a lot of oatmeal lately, so I decided to switch things up with some Pumpkin Buckweat Pancakes using a mix and canned pumpkin.
I added a big scoop of pumpkin to the batter, so the pancakes turned out moist and fluffy. They were a little bland, so next time I’m going to add some cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. I topped my pancakes with fresh blueberries and maple syrup.
My breakfast didn’t really hold me over at all, so as soon as we got home from the park, I sliced up a banana and added a big scoop of peanut butter to it. I need my daily dose of nut butter! <— Um…TWSS?

Cravings—we all get them. If you asked me what foods I typically crave, I can always reel off a number of items without hesitation: chewy oatmeal raisin cookies, cheesy loaded nachos, dark chocolate with sea salt, a malty ale… just to name a few. While trying to eat better and lose weight, these cravings often became my downfall until I discovered where they came from and how to control them by simply cleaning up my diet.
There was a time in my life when I ate way too much sugar. In fact, some days I’d “save” my calories just so I could binge on sweets later. So much, in fact, that I experienced crazy mood swings and terrible breakouts because of all of the sugar I was consuming. Clearly this wasn’t the best way to shed pounds. I knew something needed to change, so I decided to take control of my cravings once and for all. Here’s what I did.
How often do you get cravings? Do you do anything to control them?
