Hi friends!

Welcome to my little corner of Al Gore’s Internet. I’m Jareesa - I’m a scientist, a freelance writer, a knitter, wife to LM, mom to #BabyPi, and more. I love Queen Bey, squishy yarn, watching GBBO, and attempting to bake. Sometimes I rant, sometimes I rave, but I always tell the truth.

October news

Can you believe its October? Where the heck did the year go? I swear it was just January. Its been about 2 weeks since I've moved into my new place, and I'm still only about 50% unpacked. But the war zone is getting better, so I guess that's progress.

I was debating whether or not to put this in my blog, but I've decided to. On Wednesday I started the Induction phase of the Atkins plan. I just went and did it. I hit Publix on Tues night to get stuff to start with, and then I started Wed morning. My friend LM asked me why I started in the middle of the week instead of waiting for Sun or Mon, and I told her that when I really want to do something, I just go do it, no need to wait. So today is Day 3, and so far so good. I did wakeup with a baby migraine this morning, but after breakfast I started to feel much better. So far its been pretty easy to follow Induction, usually I have a breakfast of eggs and meat, and then my other two meals for the day are a salad with meat and cheese and then meat with a veggie. Its forced me to cook, and I even made steaks cooked in plenty of butter, yum. I'm thinking that I"m going to start cooking my breakfast in the evening, and then just reheating in the morning, because when I get up at 5AM I don't feel like cooking then. I'll keep you guys updated on how it goes, but my goal is to do a really clean Induction period for at least the 2 week minimum, and then I'll evaluate and see if I want to stay on Induction or move to the OWL level.

My plan
