Asparagus and Multigrain cereal
Sunday, February 13, 2011      3 comments

Asparagus is coming into season. Last night I steamed some to go with our supper. 6 large spears are just 31 calories and a pretty good source of folate and potassium. I really like asparagus steamed and eaten just plain. It is different in text... Read more

I bought some frozen packets of Edamame at Sam's this week and tried some tonight. What an amazingly tasty, crunchy lo cal snack. I had them with sea salt which pleases me but I think they would be great even plain. So fun to pop them out ot the... Read more

Last night before bed I was craving chocolate or peanut butter or any of a number of unhealthy things. I went so far as to search for my husbands stash which thankfully I didn't find. I got myself off to bed without any real indulgences. Toda... Read more
Zumba and Bobble
Saturday, February 05, 2011      2 comments

I spotted a water bottle with a filter built into it in a department store and finally got one. It's called a bobble and now when I fill my water bottle at a public fountain I still have filtered water. Oh I so like it. It's clear with a hot pin... Read more
Things I do at the Gym
Friday, February 04, 2011      2 comments

I suppose the number one thing I do is exercise. However I also talk to the desk staff on a regular basis, you know just to be friendly. Another thing I talk to a lot of people I really don't know. Random ladies in Zumba. The older men who walk ... Read more
Ey Ey Ey!!!
Thursday, February 03, 2011      2 comments

How could excercise not be fun when you have to laugh at yourself screaming Ey Ey Ey and hoping toward a mirror on one foot while kicking the other foot out in front of you. It really is a bit of a kick and a challenge to zumba. It's a good thin... Read more

Ok so that title is an exaggeration. Sorry but I bet it caught your attention. I tend to get in a rut and it's esp. easy in winter. Can't really ride bike here in the winter and I just don't do outside much of anything in two feet of snow and su... Read more

Yesterday I made a choice not to go to the gym. I have been pushing myself pretty hard and decided to take a day off from higher intensity exercise and lifting. I walked a lot but didn't do anything higher intensity. I had been wanting to spend ... Read more

Wednesday, January 26, 2011      3 comments

One day fairly recently I read a daily blog about tracking. so what do you really track and how accurate are you? I have been thinking about this a lot. Do you taste the samples in the grocery store? Do you track them? As for me it's a sometimes... Read more
