I need to pee, but first, this blog


Here's what one of the drawers in my refrigerator looks like. Yip, vegetables. A shit ton of them. Not just a metric ton, but a s* ton of vegetables. I was more preoccupied with slicing and dicing last week than I wanted to be. Here's my attempt to combat that - slice and dice a few days worth at one time. I'll let you know how it works.

You might be wondering why I don't just get a food processor. I have one. A cheap mini Black & Decker one that doesn't do much chopping or dicing. It mushes very well and spits things out all over the kitchen too. We got what we paid for, sometimes it is better to wait for the savings to kick in rather then get something cheap in price and quality. For now, it's hand cutting everything until the funds allow for an uber delux model food processor...and also good tupper ware. It's amazing how quickly you go through that stuff when you prep so much food in advance.


Not to be outdone by the refrigerator drawer - my din-din. This is my attempt to eat more Paleo goodness. So, I had some mashed cauliflower, Napa cabbage sauteed in olive oil, grilled chicken, and some broccoli/carrot mix. Lots of vegetables...lots. And some meat for good measure and good fat. I've actually had so much avocado lately, that I need a break from it. My alternate means of fat are oils and meat/seafood fat from grass-fed and wild caught sources. I'm trying to remind myself that eating healthy now will pay dividends later...and no, so far there have been no up front savings realized by preparing meals for my fiance and myself. The organic or cleanly raised produce, grass fed moo meats, wild caught sea critters, and free range chicken n' chicken byproducts are pricey. I'm hoping that once I get the hang of all this, I can focus on more cost effective ways of dining in.

Dear Natural Hair, Let Me Explain...

I posted the snap of me with my hair brushed out some weeks ago. I wanted my friends to see the difference a brush makes. All too often, they think my curly hair remains curly. Some people don’t understand why I look at them enviously as they brush their hair in the middle of the day. Sure, if I worked at a place where my brushed out hair was perceived as professional, maybe I could do that. However, my mid-day hair brushing friends and I work at the same place and I get to sit by and watch them deal with their tangles johnny on the spot. I. I have to wait until I get home and can tame the beast of tangles by creating an entirely different beast. Such is my hair.
I’ve learned to love my hair.  After years of trying to hide the curls with relaxers, fancy products, and buns – I have learned. Yes, I’m jealous of people who can ride in a car with the windows down and do nothing more than brush out the wildness. I still get angry when I brake a brush or pull bristles. That does not get in…

Multitasking SOB and the "p" word

I'm pretty sure that's what I am. At least at this moment, which includes watching tv, uploading pics to MixBook to make a wedding guest book, checking out items on Amazon.com, and figuring out what to eat tomorrow...and also blogging.

What I really wanted to talk about today was complainers. Not just any type of complainers. There's some use  to gripping and releasing thoughts on particular activities. I get that, I partake in that quite often. But then there's the line that can be crossed. The person that does this is referred to as a vulgar name placed on female genitalia. It just happens to be one of those words I don't like using due to it's negative connotation, but at the same time produces such bitter, vocal tones that it can be appropriate. I digress, back to those people. I tire of them. They irritate me. If you see me go from a happy mood to a silent mood, chances are I'm fending off the yelling at this person.

Why do you complain? Is it because …

I'm gonna git you sucka...later though

Triathlon training. It's rough stuff. I'll get it soon. I'm coming from a sprinting, pole vaulting background and have been doing primal and Crossfit style workouts for the past year. That all equals a "go, go, go, push, push, push" mentality where everything is intense. All. The. Time. While, I'm used to figuring out what 60%, 80%, etc is, I am absolutely having a hard time applying it to something that lasts longer than a pole vault approach :( The important thing - I realize I have this issue. It is a work in progress and I'm dealing with right now. Man, it's tough though.

I'm listening to the Paleolithic Solution Podcast right now, so nutrition is also on my mind. I had a huge lunch yesterday and it destroyed my appetite for dinner. Note to self - stop that. I just baked some coconut flour cranberry and blueberry muffins :P

I'm waiting for other things to take place in my day and will be on my way to a bike ride. With intensity in mind, th…
