Meal planning for healthy eating 2022: #1

It’s Monday afternoon and I just finished a protein filled breakfast. Surprisingly, eating healthy and cooking interesting meals has become a bit of a habit. I’m still using MyFitness Pal daily to track my calories and even to use it for meal planning. And other than ordering in pizza once this month, I’ve been pretty…

Fitness update and progress report (Jan 2022)

It’s late Monday morning and I just gulped down an early lunch. My hours are all messed up because I slept most of the weekend due what I think was a stomach bug. I’m not actually not even sure anymore. It could have been a bug. Could have been the new medication. Or it could…

Selfcare for chronic or severe migraines

It’s been a crappy kind of week with this lingering migraine that’s been around since Sunday. I don’t know why but it could be the weather. My sister just asked the group chat how everyone was feeling and she complained of migraines this week too. I’ve not been sleeping well for a couple of weeks…

Cozy morning rain and coffee thoughts with pictures!

It’s Tuesday morning and I woke up about half an hour ago feeling relaxed and refreshed. I’ve been working on turning my sleep schedule around and aiming for at least six hours of sleep every night, and to be up no later than 9 in the morning. With the exception of a couple of days,…

I’m in a nesting phase of my life

Last night after I made that delicious casserole, I was still hungry. I’m not sure why as I ate really healthy yesterday and filled up with delicious foods. Maybe it was hormones or just boredom. Anyway, I decided to make a single serving of mug cake. It’s an easy recipe with just four ingredients. You…

Creamy ham and spinach casserole

I’m still wading through the groceries I bought on the weekend. I really need to stop overbuying and planning meals ahead of my orders. That’s the danger of ordering online. There is still a bunch of asparagus to use up, and a container of broccoli and cauliflower. My freezer is pretty packed too. First world…

It’s going to be a beautiful day!

Good morning! I thought I would hop online to provide a quick mid-month update. Hard to believe it’s already mid-May. Where is the time going? Where has this year gone? It doesn’t seem possible that we’re already nearly half way into 2021. Have you noticed that time moves faster the older you get? Unless you’re…

Living with chronic migraines – but you don’t look sick!

It’s nearly 8:00 am and I’m showered, dressed, have a cup of coffee and a load of laundry in the washing machine. I wish this could be the case everyday. I love early mornings. But alas, another migraine kept in bed most of the day yesterday. It’s not even the migraines anymore. It’s the dizzy…

I love my rice cooker

I’m writing this out on Thursday night but it will be Friday morning when you read this. Today was a really lazy day. The temperature dropped from 18C on Wednesday afternoon to like -5C this morning. I forgot to close my kitchen window and it got super cold in here. It didn’t help that I…

Wednesday batch cooking – with asparagus

It’s Wednesday morning or almost noon as I type this out. The sun is shining and even though there’s a chilly breeze right now, it’s supposed to get up to almost 20C today. That’s like summertime weather. I’m sitting here in my plush pj pants, sipping my first cup of coffee and eating my per…
