Didn't Make My July 4th Goal...
...but I tried. I just found out last week that I wasn't eating enough food for the amount of activity I am doing. I'm sure this contributed to me not meeting my July 4th goal of 40 pounds. I'm a little bummed, but I'm OK because I'm still le... Read more
What I Did on March 29, 2014
We didn't have team workout today, so I ventured out with my dog to try to get 10,000 steps in before returning home. Our team (Seaside Sparkers) usually workout 90 minutes on Saturday, so that was another goal that I needed to meet.
I had... Read more

Another New Food :-(
...so, I tried the Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt and I was not impressed. This is probably the first food that I've tried this year that I didn't care for. I picked the raspberry Greek yogurt dipped in dark chocolate.
I love both of these f... Read more
One More New Food
Today, I tried Bob's Red Mill 5 Grain Rolled Hot Cereal for breakfast and it was delicious. I had seen it in several markets (including Big Lot and the Oroweat Outlet) and thought that it would be a good swap with oatmeal, and I was right. Thi... Read more
Another New Food?
This morning, I'm having a bagel slim (100 calories) and Philadelphia Cream Cheese . What's so new about this? The cream cheese is natural honey flavored and quite tasty. I guess, when I bought it, I thought it was infused with honey, but not... Read more

A New Food? (Sort of)

2013 FitBit Miles
I had no idea that Fitbit gives you as much information as it does. Yesterday, I received an email that stated that I had walked 813 miles in 2013. Wow! That's even amazing to me. It's my goal to beat that number in 2014. Woohoo!... Read more
Fat Free Dressings
I have NOT found a fat free dressing that I really like. My experiences with fat free dressing are they are too thick and too sweet. I know that I need to eliminate some of the fat out of my diet and this is probably one of the easiest ways. ... Read more

First Team Workout 2014
We met at the end of 190th Street in Redondo Beach and walked, and walked and walked. I forgot to turn my phone on to get the mileage, but we ended up walking more than 10,000 steps. I got really tired and winded by the end, but I hung in ther... Read more
