Ribeye Count Confusion??

Wednesday, February 23, 2011      1 comments

Ok, so I'm thoughly confused on the calorie count for a ribeye steak! Ribeye is one of my FAV's! And they were on sale, so I grabbed a 1/4" thick, very small one (about 4 oz)...to splurge a little. If you know your Ribeyes, then you know this w... Read more

Recaculating.....

Wednesday, February 03, 2010      1 comments

Man is that dissapointing! I slipped, twice, this week. That slip popped me up four pounds. It's been really slow to lose on this journey. If you do the math, it doesn't make sense. Being an accountant, of course I reveiwed my numbers, and... Read more
