Unsettling health news (but then again, I guess they rarely report the good news)

Tuesday, February 26, 2013      9 comments

I was browsing through the health news article, and this one arrested my attention: http://www.sparkpeople.com/r

I enjoy our more active friend-dates nowadays

Ever since I got healthy and dragged my husband on the health foods and daily exercise bandwagon (not that he was overweight, inactive, or unhealthy before...but I got him more interested in eating healthfully and making sure he gets his cardio ... Read more

Why flexitarianism is awesome!

Friday, February 22, 2013      5 comments

I love meat, I really do. I could never go straight-up vegetarian. Chicken, salmon, cod, I LOVE THEM. Beef and pork are good, but I could probably live without them...but you can never take my fish and poultry from me! :) That said, I prob... Read more

Exercise and pregnancy?

Tuesday, February 19, 2013      3 comments

As you may or may not know, my husband and I have been hoping to conceive for the past year, but I went through 11 months of amenorrhea despite three attempts using progesterone (only got my period back this January after taking estrogen AND pr... Read more

I fixed my stationary bike!

Monday, February 18, 2013      4 comments

Yaaay!! It was always ride-able, but the computer part got torn off during our move to our new town, and so there were some busted wires on the inside that my father and husband attempted to reconnect...and did it totally wrong. Which is ... Read more

Gnarly Road Rash!

Saturday, February 16, 2013      4 comments

When I was a kid in elementary school, we had this singer called Bill Wellington come every year to perform for us. He sang goofy songs about the most random things, but they've totally stuck with me. Magdalena Hagdalena...the Vindow Viper...and... Read more

I am losing more and more self-control at home...

Thursday, February 14, 2013      4 comments

I need to find a job again and get out of the house for most of the day! Currently, I haven't found work yet in our new city, and I spend all day long at home....with my fridge and cabinets full of food right by me. It's gotten to the point... Read more

I spend SO much money on produce

Tuesday, February 12, 2013      7 comments

It's kind of unfortunate. I love fresh produce, as does my husband, and we eat a ton of it. But whatever SP articles try to say about eating healthy not having to be expensive...produce can be very pricey! My bag of grapes was $16 today! $3.79/... Read more

Pedaling, produce, and paratha - woo hoo!

My husband and I enjoyed an excellent day together. We biked over to Yorktown to have a picnic lunch there because it was supposed to be sunny and warm. Well, it was sunny. Turns out that the weather didn't hear the part where it was suppos... Read more

I *love* cooking!

Saturday, February 09, 2013      4 comments

Had a lovely day today! Primarily because I love cooking new things and I tried four new recipes today. 1. Cranberry sauce (cranberries + maple syrup) - this was only okay to me. Didn't love the very mapley flavor of it - seemed weird in a ... Read more

Weakness, thy name is chex mix

Friday, February 08, 2013      6 comments

Not the store-bought stuff. My grandmother's recipe (which is probably more-or-less the same as everyone's grandmother's recipe). It uses celery salt, garlic salt, and garlic salt, on top of Worcestershire sauce and butter and pretzels and... Read more

Enough with Chris Christie's weight! And Michelle Obama's, for that matter.

Thursday, February 07, 2013      7 comments

Without getting into personal politics, I can definitely say that there is a lot that I respect and admire about both Chris Christie and Michelle Obama. Even if I didn't respect them, I would still loathe the repeated armchair diagnosing o... Read more

An actual rest day, and a tasty new oatmeal preparation!

Tuesday, February 05, 2013      2 comments

Yesterday, I was totally going to do some Zumba, but then....I decided not to. It's been god-knows-how-long since I had a real rest day. You know I have a hard time with rest days. I feel like I have to do substantial cardio every day or I'm no... Read more

Whole Grain Subterfuge!

I might be a deceitful little sister when it comes to getting my way in terms of healthy food. emoticon OH WELL.... Read more

Yoga videos are so goofy sometimes

Saturday, February 02, 2013      3 comments

I've done some yoga classes with a live instructor, and I've done yoga videos. I definitely prefer a real class with other students and a real instructor present, mainly for safety issues (I don't want to hurt myself doing poses wrong!)...but I ... Read more
