Raw Foods - A Summary

Posted on March 1st, 2009 in Advice, Bucket List, Budge That Pudge

Last night, when the clock struck 12:00am V and I celebrated the end of February (and our month of raw eating) with glasses of gin and pineapple juice, a bag of chips, and a rotisserie chicken.  Yes, I went and bought one of those pre-cooked chickens because I’d been dying for meat and that was [...]

I’m All About The Food Porn: Raw Foods - Day Eighteen

Posted on February 18th, 2009 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Budge That Pudge, Photos

Do you know what is awesome about raw foods?  Totally guilt-free indulgence.  And by that I mean ALL THE DESSERT YOU WANT!
That’s right.  When you are eating raw, you can have cheesecake for breakfast and still have room to spare in your skinny jeans.  In fact, I would say that most days, at least one [...]

Purple Things That Make You Cry

Posted on February 16th, 2009 in Budge That Pudge, Does All Her Own Stunts, Photos

I had intended to post reviews last week, among other things, but with everything that happened, my desire to sit down and write anything was weak at best.
Last-minute company has arrived from out west, and they brought with them their 6 year old terror, who is the main reason I am awake and typing at [...]

Raw Foods - Day Nine

Posted on February 9th, 2009 in Budge That Pudge, Emotional Angst

I’m having a difficult time today.
I feel resentful and deprived.  I wish that I’d not committed to going quite so raw.  I wish that I’d built in an allowance for even one cup of coffee a day.  If not the coffee, then maybe one cooked thing a week.
Why don’t I just go ahead and change [...]

Raw Foods - Day Three

Posted on February 3rd, 2009 in Budge That Pudge

Don’t people always say that the third day is the hardest?
I certainly hope it is.
Today has been a struggle for me.  I’m recovering from a bout of the flu, and all I’ve wanted since Sunday is a cup of coffee and a hot bowl of soup.  While it would be easy for me to justify [...]

Apparently, I Look Like A Lesbian Ex-Con

Posted on January 29th, 2009 in Bucket List, Budge That Pudge

Good fortune must be the theme of 2009, as I’ve found myself luckier and happier every day since the new year began.  I feel more energetic than I have in ages, and everything seems to be working out just as it should.
Today I had my first ever set of passport photos taken.  It happened to be [...]

On Swimming, And A Month Without Coffee

Posted on January 11th, 2009 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Bucket List, Budge That Pudge

After a somewhat disappointing weigh-in on Tuesday, we’ve thrown ourselves into eating better and working out with renewed fervour.  I did lose some over the 6 weeks since our initial weigh-in, but the holiday season took it’s toll, and the numbers were not what I hoped.  I skipped the gym for two weeks in a [...]
