5 Thoughts Need to eat 7 times a day is easy when you’re at a Renaissance Faire, I tell you. There’s food EVERYWHERE and tavern at every corner! And I want to eat EVERYTHING! Fortunately for me, there’s only so much cash in my wallet… …and even less room underneath my underbust corset. LOL Seriously. There must be a study somewhere about how women get drunk faster and/or feeling the effect of alcohol more while wearing a corset. I had 2 drinks

5 Thoughts I’ve been looking forward to sleeping in ALL WEEK since I woke up at 7:30 for no apparent reason last Sunday. But the problem with sleeping in is that you have less time in a day to eat, and therefore interfering with my schedule. For instance, I woke up at 10 today and that’s about 30 minutes after my usual time for Second Breakfast. If I have to choose between sleeping in and failing my challenge, I think

5 Thoughts ….well, screw the five thoughts for today. I have ONE major rant. Whoever said that keeping a food journal and tracking your calorie intake is good for your diet must really and truly hate food, and therefore hate life. I mean, look at me. I have NEVER felt guilty about my food choices or what I eat. For the past few days, I have been anxious and upset over the fact that I’ve exceeded the 1,550 calories per

5 Thoughts I foresee interesting substitution meal and weird scheduling in the future if I don’t start the day with 8 a.m. Breakfast. I’m getting hungry almost to the minute of my schedule now. It’s kind of creepy… I stuck to the schedule quite well considering that I spent half a day running around LA on geeky adventure with my Team Wicket partner Christine. Hooray for Free Comic Book Day! I fucking hate LA. I did exceed the 1,550 calorie

It was Talk Like A Pirate Day last week. Since I’ve learned about the holiday 7 years ago, I’ve transformed into Captain Bubbles and gone to work as such. Every year. Last year, I sailed to the township of Long Beach to plunder a pastry shopped called Krispy Kreme. Since I was rogue at the time, I brought the booty to my good friend Doctor Justin to take to work.  This year, Captain Bubbles, now employed, repeated the raid and
