Food Review: Have you tried Siggy's skyr?

Friday, April 24, 2015      1 comments

A while ago, I discovered Siggy's Icelandic Skyr (like Greek yogurt only thicker, and with very little added sugar) at our local grocery. I tried the coconut flavor, which is absolutely amazing, though so rich I use it more as a topping for frui... Read more

Another way to look at streaking

Tuesday, September 23, 2014      1 comments

I've been working on getting ten thousand steps a day since July 22, 2012, but my streak has been broken many times for various reasons. I'm currently 35 days into attempting another streak; this time I hope to beat my longest streak, which was ... Read more

A productive weekend

Sunday, March 31, 2013      3 comments

It has been a really nice weekend of taking care of ourselves and doing enjoyable things. Yesterday we drove to Old Rag and walked on the fire road for almost 2 hours. We drove there via Sperryville and home via Culpeper, so it was a lovely dr... Read more

One piece of cake is always better than two ... today's NSV

Thursday, March 21, 2013      3 comments

I can't take credit for that one - it's one of INDYGIRL's "indyisms" (thought the original may be about pizza:)). Well, today it worked for me. Our customer brought in a big cake from Wegman's to celebrate someone's retirement, and after... Read more

Brown Rice Triscuit - Part 2

Tuesday, March 19, 2013      1 comments

Well, I sent Nabisco an e-mail telling that we were disappointed with the product (see my previous blog entry for why), and got this response today (only 3 days later). This could tempt me to try them again (perhaps a different flavor, though).... Read more

Food Review - Brown Rice Triscuit

Saturday, March 16, 2013      3 comments

We saw these at the grocery store last night and decided to try them. Unfortunately, what's inside the box doesn't look as good as on the package. We bought the Sea Salt & Black Pepper variety - there were several flavors to choose from, ... Read more

Bertucci's Cod al Forno

Friday, March 15, 2013      7 comments

We went to Bertucci's tonight for dinner, and I wanted to have a lighter dinner, so I ordered the Cod al Forno, which means Baked Cod (literally from the oven) in Italian. The menu said that it was sprinkled with bread crumbs, and served over ma... Read more

Really enjoying my FitBit

Monday, January 21, 2013      6 comments

I really like that fb sends me weekly e-mails on how I've done, and also how long the little thing holds a charge! I really wish that their mobile app allowed syncing with my Android phone, but hopefully that will be added in the near future. ... Read more

My New Toy - the Fitbit One

Tuesday, January 08, 2013      4 comments

I'd been wanting a Fitbit for a while, and Hubby got me the One for Christmas. I must have been using it for just a week, because today I got an e-mail with my weekly stats in it - I wasn't expecting that! So, here are my stats for 12/31/12 - ... Read more

Could protein be the key?

Friday, November 30, 2012      5 comments

I've always tended to eat more carbs, and recently decided to try getting more protein in my diet, especially at breakfast - I was getting hungry two hours after eating a very generous bowl of oatmeal, milk, and fruit. See my "Tale of Three Bre... Read more

I tried a new food: Burger King Apple Cranberry Chicken Salad

Sunday, October 21, 2012      3 comments

I lost 50 pounds eating a lot of fast food (by choosing wisely), so I'm always excited to try the new healthier options that many fast-food restaurants are offering. Today DH wanted to lunch at BK, and I remembered that I've been wanting to... Read more

Getting back on track - Again!

Sunday, October 21, 2012      1 comments

Well, our customer event was a success last week, but the pace is really intense, and invariably, the quality of my diet deteriorates as the week progresses. I did better this month than last, though; I only missed 2 days of exercise, and my e... Read more

Soy Milk vs. Skim

Saturday, October 13, 2012      4 comments

In my recent quest to find the perfect breakfast, I decided to calculate my breakfasts with both skim milk and soy milk. I originally started using soy milk instead of skim when I discovered that I wasn't getting enough fat in my diet. I settl... Read more

So, I did my breakfast experiment this week - 3 days I had my home-made egg sandwich , 1 day I had almond butter on toast, and the 5th day I had a Dunkin Donuts Ham/Egg/Cheese Wakeup Wrap. All breakfasts also included 100 grams of apple and 1/4... Read more
