A Rice Krispie treat is BASICALLY a granola bar, right? :)
I mean, I didn't use any butter or corn syrup, I used EnviroKidz Chocolate Koala Crisp (or something like that...one of those cereals you get in the organic hippie section of the grocery store) so it was made with brown rice and less sodium than... Read more
Is it normal for jogging while pregnant to result in bladder pain?
I am kind of confused by this latest new thing my body is experiencing now that I've got a couple low-fat whole-grain buns in the oven.
I went running yesterday and previously, I've noticed that shortly after starting, it feels like I have ... Read more
Still working on finding balance...but now it's a different kind!
I used to struggle with balancing healthy amounts of exercise with a normal life. Exercise had taken over my life and I spent hours every day speed-walking plus usually some other form of harder cardio like jogging or really high intensity zumba... Read more
I hate sparking on phones.
Traveling, so I have to spark via phone. Had a whole blog typed up about my new niece then barely brushed the screen wrong and lost it. Oh well. I'm sure she is a much more interesting topic to me than you anyway. :)... Read more
I'm an aunt for the first time!
My sister-in-law had her baby yesterday afternoon, and I'm so excited to meet her this weekend. She was TEN POUNDS, TWO OUNCES. Monstrous! (Her daddy is a big dude.)
It's so nice to be able to be happy about this. If you read some of my... Read more
Some wisdom from Patton Oswalt
If you've been following the Boston marathon coverage, there's a good chance you've already seen this, but I wanted to post it anyway. I absolutely love Patton Oswalt's response to the bombing. I hope he wouldn't mind me posting it in full here... Read more
Hooray for the upcoming generations!
I babysat my neighbors' kids for the first time this evening, and they were sweet little boys and we had a fun time together playing in their treehouse and walking down to the nearby pond to poke at algae with sticks...but I was really impressed... Read more
Thanks, Applebee's...but also, COME ON, APPLEBEE'S
We're visiting my parents for my mom's birthday, and we went out to Applebee's because my parents had apparently accumulated like $130 in gift cards over the years (my dad is generally grouchy and doesn't like going out to eat :)) so they decide... Read more
Junk food pushers can strike anyone, anytime!
Okay well maybe it helps if you aren't buying a soda at a gas station convenience store.
But my husband was traveling recently, and he wasn't feeling well (he - and his family - has a tendency to get an upset stomach fairly easily) so when ... Read more
Um, this is exactly the kind of thing I might do
I was looking through some random gallery of weight-loss-related anecdotes/jokes on Reader's Digest's website - you know how they have those "Laughter is the Best Medicine" sections of the magazine - and thought this one was totally funny AND is... Read more
Woman who lost 123 pounds through Zumba featured on CNN
I just love reading people's weight loss stories on news and blog sites (and sparkpeople, obviously!). This particular woman struggled for a long time but then discovered Zumba, fell in love with it, and lost 120+ pounds!

Changing food preferences
I used to love tea. I drank several cups a day. I'd use bags at least twice to conserve resources/money because I drank SO MUCH tea.
Now it almost makes me feel ill to think about drinking it.
I used to love a spinach salad every day f... Read more
I blame the parasites
I cannot stop myself from eating crap food around midday. I never used to have this problem. But lately, I just get into all kinds of snacks, cereal, crackers, and desserts if we have any, and I end up eating most of my day's calories before 4 o... Read more
Not much happened today beyond EATING. No exercise, tons of food and candy and birthday cake, but I did also try to eat lots of fruit and veggies....so the tummy is full and a lot of it's junk, but a lot of it was nutritious too!
Enjoyed... Read more
One (or rather, two) minor detail(s) about that major news from the other day...
You know how I'm (FINALLY) pregnant? After all that time and effort and mental drama and whatnot? After seeing endocrinologists and getting fertility shots and whatnot?
Well, fertility shots work pretty well, it turns out. As do my husband'... Read more
