My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hello everyone. Well, the weather is finally starting to warm up here in Halfmoon Bay. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the rest of Canada where it seems to have regressed back into winter and it actually starting snowing again over the weekend! Uuggh. Thank goodness we live on the west coast where it's … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Saving Money & Exercising!

Hello. Monday again! Well, I'm happy to say that I've lost 2 lbs this week. I haven't started Yoga yet, but that will be tomorrow (really!). I didn't get round to walking at all. My excuse was that it rained a lot. I had a chocolate bar over the weekend, but that was it. Still … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hello all. How are you doing? We're doing fine here. I missed the last couple of weeks as we went into Vancouver to see my 3 year old grandson who was visiting from Edmonton and got behind in household stuff and it's taken me until now to catch up! Well, we survived an entire week … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Good morning from Halfmoon Bay. We are well into the loooong, dark, rainy days of winter. Thank goodness we got our yard work done yesterday as part of our Operation Clean up (well, except for the porch stones) because it's raining today. These are the kinds of days that make you want to curl up … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Skinny Soup, Pumpkin Chili & More

This week is a clean-out-the freezer week. I have some ribs and a lovely roast that needs to be eaten soon, so this is the week to do it. I luuurve roast beef & yorkshire pudding! I didn't lose any weight this week (might be the glass of red wine every night), but I did't … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Reducing my Carbon Footprint

I used to make my own dog food and my own dog treats and then things got hectic and I stopped doing it. Instead, I bought what I thought was the healthiest dry food for my dogs. It cost me an arm and a leg and couple of toes, but I soon came to the … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Reducing my Carbon Footprint

Hi everyone! It's been a few weeks. Things have been more than a little hectic around here. Buuut, I'm getting back on track now.  I'm afraid to say that I fell off the wagon in terms of exercise. With the warmer weather, I've (re)started walking for 30 minutes a day along the sea wall in Sechelt … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Back on track finally and I lost 3 pounds last week! Whoo hoo! I did things a little differently this time. Instead of having leftover suppers for my lunch, I've been having a salad instead. And absolutely NO sweets! I have a horrible sweet tooth, but this week a small yogurt after supper satisfied my … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life
