    AnnofIreland got a reaction from Megan Claydon in slimming down for rowing   
    Thanks Hcross and Megan! I think adding greens is just a great idea anyway in my diet but I after a long amount of thought and contemplation I think my body is just fine here around 140. If a drop happens naturally, that's fine, but I don't see my future on the front of a Wheaties Box **shudder** anytime soon for rowing. I am passionate about the sport but I fear that this drive could take that passion too far.
    I think I'm just going to keep my focus on the art, the practice and the fun of rowing. Honestly, thanks for all the input.

    AnnofIreland got a reaction from jhmomi in Well Fed's chocolate chili   
    My favorite part is the avocado. It's such a great, cooling addition.

    AnnofIreland reacted to FusaroFTW in Austin Restaurants?   
    Richardson Farms (found at Austin, Tx local farmer's markets) has sugar free, hormone/nitrate/antibiotic free pork bacon! Local, cage free pastured pork - can't wait to get ours this week at the Farmer's Market (http://www.richardsonfarms.com/).
    They sell it as pork belly (sliced) which can be prepared just like bacon, perfect for our Whole30!
    Hope this helps Austinites

    AnnofIreland got a reaction from Derval in PMS and Carbohydrate Cravings   
    Some pureed sweet potato after my sushi dinner tonight hit the spot. I couldn't ever really FEED the beast during the beginning of menstruation. Now a few spoon-fulls of sweet potatoes shuts my desire for sweets down! I have never had this experience so it's refreshing to see the desire...realize it's been sated..and move on.
    Thanks for the information Melissa! What a great piece of knowledge to add to my repertoire.

    AnnofIreland reacted to Derval in Great uplifting quote for the day   
    "You are not your bra-size, nor are you the width of your waist, nor are you the slenderness of your calves. You are not your hair color, your skin color, nor are you a shade of lipstick. Your shoe-size is of no consequence. You are not defined by the amount of attention you get from males or females. You are not the number of sit-ups you can do nor are you the number of calories in a day.
    You are the content of your character. You are the ambitions that drive you. You are the goals that you set. You are the things that you laugh at and the words that you say. You are the thoughts you think and the things you wonder. You are beautiful and desirable not for the clique you attend, but for the spark of life within you that compels you to make your life a full and meaningful one. You are beautiful, not for the shape of the vessel, but for the soul it carries."
