Just putting out a list of places to look when I need to shop for clothes
As a result of all of this musing about satiety, I have made a few changes in my way of eating that I think have helped. I try to eat a lot more vegetables, as 1) the physical feeling of fullness does contribute to satiety and vegetables provide that without adding many calories, and 2) fiber helps to slow down digestion, as I said above. I’ve also incorporated lean protein and whole grains (which have protein and fiber present instead of only the pure carbohydrate portion) for similar reasons. This is how I’ve been losing weight without the pain of having to go on “a diet”; I still get to eat a lot of food, but since my blood sugar is far more regular now, I don’t feel the constant need to be eating. I physically feel full after meals without having eaten more than I will burn off in a day.

This makes so much sense to me. It’s hard for me to do because there always a ton of sweets in the house but I keep trying.
eShakti is an online store where you can customize your order for just $8 with your measurements and (depending on the garment) your preferences for length, sleeves and neckline.
Besides being one of my favorite writers, Gail Carriger is a devoted fashionista and knowledgeable sewer with her own wardrobe challenges so I was happy when she said she’d placed and order and anxious to see her review.
I’m going to cut out all the suspense right away, and tell you my feeling instantly. I know, bad storytelling.
I am THRILLED!!!!!!

So stoked about the Hobby Lobby ruling today. Officially going to incorporate myself so I can get a religious exemption for my student loans debt they violate my deeply held religious conviction that all debts are supposed to be forgiven every seven years, as per the book of Deuteronomy.

Follow the link and read both the poem and the story. They’re both wonderful.
Needed to make something to take to work for lunch and this is what I came up with from the fridge/pantry.
- Cook 1lb ground beef with rough diced onion, bell pepper, salt, pepper, Cumin, Parsley, Red Pepper.
- Drain and empty into a bowl.
- Cook 4 cups Minute Rice (what I had) with 2 cups water, 2 cups tomato sauce and seasoning.
- Mix the meat and veggies in with the rice.
At this point you can do several things: eat as is; layer the meat and rice in a glass dish with cheese and corn chips to bake for a casserole; roll in a tortilla with cheese and refried beans for a burrito.
I did the last as the handiest way to eat on the go.

Tried these for the first time tonight. Very simple and easy. Extremely tasty. I don’t have a scale so they wound up being a little oily. Trying with less oil next time.
when referring to people, use “glitch” instead of “bitch”. call them glitches. say theyre being glitchy. not only do you get to avoid using a misogynistic slur, you can also imply that their negativity is an anomaly in the web grid of your life and thus needs to be patched

It’s not a bad idea to measure a room before you go out and buy a bunch of new furniture. And if you’ve got an iPhone, that becomes less of an ordeal because you can trade your tape measure for this slick app called RoomScan. It automatically generates floorplans by simply tapping your phone on every wall.

So when I had to do some mattress shopping recently, I remembered reading a thread on Hacker News about Tuft & Needle. T&N is a start-up that, in the parlance of Silicon Valley VCs, is disrupting the mattress industry by offering products of similar quality at dramatically lower prices with an emphasis on customer service. Recode recently ran a piece on the company and their founders.
