I went to Target today and bought Coach Nicole's new DVD. Target had reduce price from $12.?? to $10.00, so the $3.00 coupon I had printed off from SparkPeople made the cost $7.00. Plus, there's a sticker on the DVD for 20% off a Reebock or GAIAM accessory purchased at the same time as the DVD evidently (didn't appear to be one that could be peeled off and used later.). So, I looked around but I already owned dumbbells, so didn't need any more dumbbells, even though Reebock has some cute ones (the purple ones were the lightest ones, like 2 pounds. I wanted some heavier - but ... I already have a set of 3 pairs or maybe 4 pairs in gradually increasing weight amounts.
I've kinda been thinking I needed some sort of HMR but not yet feeling "worthy" enough for the $99 FitBit or something like that (I know, how stupid is that, right?). But in any case, Target just happened to have a purple watch style HRM co-branded by GAIAM and Oregon Scientifics. I usually like Oregon Scientifics products, and it was on sale from $79-ish to like $59 ish by Target. The cashier agreed that the sticker wasn't really clear as to whether it had to be used now or later, but it didn't automatically trip off the computer scanning the codes, so she had to do the discount manually. Anyway so I got 20% off that discounted price down to about $45ish... Sooo I'm anxious to see how well that all works.
Now if I could just find the remote to my little tv so it will let me advance to the next dvd workout... or figure out how to get the so-called Universal remote to learn the older tv thing (it's per-digital.... eh... you know, like analog?). Would that Lt. Uhara was here "Now opening all hailing frequencies!" or C3PO "I don't believe I know that dialect!"

SP_STAFF New Sharing and Saving Options on Member Blogs
This blog from SP_Spark team has their discussion about the "Share" feature which allows blogs to be added to the Facebook Feed and Twitter feed. There's a link for instructions on how to op out of it... Basically you are going to your SparkPage and clicking on the Edit your page, and the very last option at the list of things that you can check on or off (like whether to make blogs available to everyone or to just friends only, etc), is the one you want to uncheck for not having the share bar on your blog so others reading your blog can't click on it and send it off to Facebook....
The next day, January 16, 2012 - this feature was removed.

So... I admit it, I'm a Wichitan, love our NuWay sandwichies. I ate here today (Sunday), at the same location pictured in their website below, the original location (now repainted and slightly enlarged and a bit gussied-up.).
The trick is, nutritional info is hard to come by... you know, top secret recipes for their garlic salad and all of that... The pork stuff, I don't eat, so that's not an issue for me.
Right now I'm collecting info and so think of this more like my "scratch pad" or "doodling" or "scribbling", nothing really makes sense here because I haven't really digested it all...
These folks claim to have the recipe... but it's a bit different than one I saw earlier.
21/garlic-salad/ very interesting because she mentions a "garlic liquid" - I'm wondering if her Aunt Ruby used Watkins' Garlic Liquid Spice
Now I have had the garlic salad at Doc's Steak House, at the old (now closed) Abe's Steakhouse, at Spear's (most locations closed but the one shop remains open out by Towne West), and of course NuWay. All are different. Some are lettuce only blends, some are cabbage only, and some are a blend. All use garlic - I think most are using garlic salt or else garlic powder, rather than fresh sqeezed garlic.
Leeker's grocery store makes a garlic salad for their carry-out Deli - that one seems more like what NuWay makes, with a bit of cabbage.
I have some other thoughts on this.... but can't think now, too tired....
no need to comment here since it's basically my "Big Chief Tablet" scratchings and scribblings...rantings... heh.

So I subscribe to this dude's blog - BodyForWife.com James Fell - and he writes a column for the LA Times. This article hit home because he describes how he hated exercise at first and then kept quitting, then exercising, and then quitting, and finally it ignited, and he loves exercise.
That needs to happen with me!!
As he says: "2012 will tick away, second by second, no matter what we do. So it makes sense to approach this as a gradual, incremental progression toward awesome. The Venus de Milo wasn't carved in a day, and neither shall be the new you."
I looked for a photo and except for being scantily clad, the Venus wasn't a bad looking gal, chiseled features....looks like she probably originally had great guns, judging by the way her shoulders begin to develop before some knobhead dispensed with her arms.
But I like his comment and need to remember to work out every day, eat properly every day, so as to slowly burn away the flab and reveal the body I was meant to have!!
