Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

You may call me H.M. - Half Macro or Howling Mad :p

Posted 09-01-2017 at 10:45 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

It's Friday! Just had to share this ridiculous GIF:

So, what have I done this week?
First, let us review the week's goals:

1) Make eating proportions about 40% whole grains, 40-50% vegetables.
2) Incorporate round vegetables, root vegetables, leafy greens, and beans.
3) Supplement with fermented foods.

I've been trying to keep breakfast...

Turnips in the Oven

Posted 08-29-2017 at 12:02 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

Well, here I am partway through Day 2 and realizing just how few vegetables are regularly a part of my diet, much less in the house. Picked up some turnips and some ginger yesterday, and when Googling how to cook turnip, found a recipe that calls for both. Roasted turnip is currently in the oven. From what I understand, the round root roasted to tenderness will nourish the abdominal organs like the stomach and the intestines, which is where I could use the most help at the moment. I'll have to check...

You Must Begin at the Beginning

Posted 08-27-2017 at 07:23 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

Well, yesterday's rant was effective. Let the record show that these are my complaints - and now I'm ready to move on.

My plan this week is to begin a semi-macro meal routine that I can adjust and maintain throughout the school year. I say semi because I will still try to participate within reason in family dinners, as I have been trying to do for a while, and there will almost certainly be one-meal hiatuses from time to time. But for the most part, I can control what I consume at...

My Excuse for Being Delinquent

Posted 08-26-2017 at 10:47 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

I'm writing this post because I'm an imperfect person who is not accomplishing what I want to accomplish. And the greatest obstacle to getting things done, it seems, is that I have to do them all alone.

Two days ago, two of my college friends arrived in town. One I took out for tea and a bookstore visit in the afternoon. The other I caught up with while she unpacked and set up her dorm room. It was a highly satisfying day, because I got to reconnect with people I really care about...

When Something Beautiful Breaks (by Heidi Priebe)

Posted 08-23-2017 at 11:01 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

Tonight, I'm not feeling especially eloquent (actually, I'm in the midst of the dread, second-guessing, and mild self-loathing that come before writing an important part - or sometimes any part at all - of my WIP). But I do feel the need to reflect on a deep, moving essay from a writer I follow online. The following is entirely her work.
