Wednesday, February 11, 2009      5 comments

So my go-to machine at the gym is this thing called an ArcTrainer. It is sort of a cross between an elliptical and a stairmaster. I can really get my heart pumping on it and it's just plain fun. But today, I must have been a little bloate... Read more

Well it was a great day! I wasn't rooting for anyone in particular and it was actually a really interesting game. I'm really not a sports fan, but there was plenty of suspense this time around to keep me interested. I made some Hungry Girl re... Read more

It's time to build some muscle!

Friday, October 24, 2008      9 comments

I had gotten it into my head that I should get down to 144. That would be 101 pounds lost. This was my goal because 144 is where I go from being "overweight" to "normal" on the BMI scale. Weight loss has become basically impossible. I can s... Read more

Thursday, October 02, 2008      1 comments

I had previously tried their peppermint flavor, which only stays around for a limited time. It tastes just like a peppermint candy! But what I'm truly amazed with is the apple pie flavor. Oh my gosh, it's just like eating apple pie ala mo... Read more

Amber Tried It : Wendy's Chili

Sunday, September 28, 2008      4 comments

Ok, so my plan today was to try something new. I sometimes get a hankering for fast food, but I get bummed when I do because it's often a lot of calories for something that really isn't filling. Well I heard that the chili at Wendy's is re... Read more
