    Thursday was one of those days where I was hungry all day long. Nothing satisfied me and I was hungry again an hour after eating a meal.

    I think this photo sums up my week. That would be the passenger seat of my car. Yes, I'm living out of it - vagabond style.

    Oh man...it's been a heavy workout day and I am so happy to be sitting down right now. Before I launch into all the details, here is a look at last night's dinner. Grilled okra, grilled king clip and brown rice. After dinner I was able to tame my sweet tooth and avoid dessert. I [...]

    Obviously, I couldn't decide what to name this post. I usually really struggle with titles but tonight the creative juices were a flowin' so you get a laundry list.
