Inaugural post, take 2

Well, I kinda-sorta started this blog with not much to say back in July. But since I suspect that at most, one person (O hai Jen, thanks for being my one follower!) read that post, it's gone now and I'm starting over.

And I guess that's fitting because there are a lot of things in my life that I'm trying to get a fresh start on. After losing a lot of weight a few years ago and then slowly gaining the majority of that back over the last few years, I've finally found the energy to work at losing it again. Only this time my approach is quite different than before. This time around I'm not just focusing on losing weight but on really trying to be healthier. And this means that for the first time in my life, I'm voluntarily eating fruits and vegetables. And I'm also starting to look at the amount of processed crap that's in most of our food and trying to eat less of it--better for me and better for the planet.

I'm also trying to spend a little less time putzing around on the internet (yeah, starting a blog is a great way to do that :P) and more time doing stuff in real life. I've picked up the knitting needles again and am hard at work on several Christmas presents, not to mention finishing a couple of works in progress. Add me as a friend if you happen to be on Ravelry!

If you know me in real life, it shouldn't surprise you to know that I don't have any master plan for where this blog is going. Random stories about my life? Social commentary? Knitting? Pictures? Yeah, I expect there will be some of all of that, and who knows what else. Stay tuned!


  1. I vote for pictures! And stories! And maybe a little caramel vegetable!

  2. Yum, I want caramel vegetable. I also just had to clarify for Carrie that it's CARmel vegetable, none of this East Coast care-a-mel. (To be fair, I have adopted the East Coast pronunciation in most cases, but some things are sacred...namely caramel vegetable and caramel apples.) I shall try to come up with some pictures and stories, though the lack of offspring may make that a bit more difficult for me than it is for you. :)

  3. You didn't have to file a master plan when you signed up for a blog? What is the internet coming to?
