I accomplished so much today! Hooray!! I think I deserve a beer! Check out just one of the projects that I finally checked off my To Do list today: Viola! A brand new spice rack that matches our kitchen cabinets! Oh, it’s the little things. Dinner This evening’s dinner was a bunch of leftovers: Salmon-Quinoa Burger with Swiss cheese and barbeque sauce on a toasted English muffin and some baked acorn squash on the side. All…

I guess I spoke too soon because as soon as I walked out my front door, I realized that the roads were in no condition for running. Apparently, yesterday’s thaw froze overnight, which left the roads looking quite treacherous. Running outside was a no go. Or should I say a ”˜snow’ go? 😉 With the marathon right around the corner, there was no way that I was going to risk an injury, so I took my…

Good news: I’m making progress with my sugar habit! I realize that something like this doesn’t happen overnight, but I’m starting to figure out what’s going on with my cravings and how to best deal with them. If you ask me, that’s some sweet progress! So, I think that my sugar cravings are more emotional than physical. I definitely experience physical sugar cravings and feel like a crazy person until I get my fix, but…

Welcome to my little sugar experiment! Ok, it’s actually nothing crazy, but, instead, taking some wise advice from Caitlin, Gracie, and a few other bloggers and readers. The goal is save the sweets until after dinner. My problem is once I start, I can’t stop. But knowing that a delicious dessert is waiting for me at the end of the day will hopefully help me hold off my cravings. It’s sort of like Cookie Friday,…

Does anyone else remember this episode of Punky Brewster? Punky starts hanging out with the ”˜cool crowd’ and they offer her drugs, but she turns them down because she has Punky Power! Ok, I’m done with the Punky Brewster references. I promise. Dinner Tonight’s dinner was a delicious mix of protein-packed foods. I had an open-faced tuna melt sandwich (with celery mixed in) on a piece of whole wheat bread. On the side, I had…

Did my post title remind anyone else of Punky Power?!? I totally said it that way in my head! 😀 Ok, maybe I’m weird. Snack I’m trying to amp-up my protein intake with the hope of satisfying my out-of-control sugar cravings. A lot of people left comments and emailed me to say that eating more protein (and fat) helped them combat their nasty cravings, so I’m giving it a try! Mid-morning, I snacked on a…

Good morning! Check out the winter wonderland outside! I’m not sure we got 20 inches of snow, but it’s plenty enough for me!  So, today’s the day that I plan to make some dietary changes to get me back in the groove of healthful eating. I actually started over the weekend with being more mindful of the desserts and treats that I consumed. I even had a couple of small victories yesterday! Did you keep a…

I eat too much sugar. In fact, there are some days that I eat more dessert than “real” food. (Hence, not posting all of my meals and the likely culprit for my recent weight gain.) Of course, I don’t think there is anything wrong with enjoying a little sugar every now and then””this blog is called Carrots ”˜N’ Cake after all””but I’ve been really overdoing it lately. At first, I really enjoyed these sugary indulges. I…
