Do you live with a roommate?  When I lived with my sister, we used to buy our own food.  She would cook her dinner and I would cook mine.  Since I love to grocery shop and cook, when I moved in with my new roommate (aka roomie), we decided that I would be in charge [...]

I have an addictive personality.  When I give up one vice, I usually pick up another.  One habit I’m lucky to have is that I love to exercise!  I rarely do it longer than 90 minutes, and usually for only 45 minutes a day.  But I didn’t always find it easy to get out the [...]

This morning, I woke up early to drive roomie to a golf tournament.  I’ve been trying to follow the TIU Booty Call protocol of not eating before 30 minutes of working out, but since I wasn’t sure how long my errand would take I had a scoop of protein powder mixed with water and almond [...]
