Another way to look at streaking
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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?
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
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!
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
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
A Tale of Three Breakfasts - Continued
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
A Tale of Three Breakfasts
Gosh - I haven't blogged in so long - my work life has been hectic, so something had to give:). Anyway, I'd been eating the same oatmeal breakfast for it seems years, but I always get hungry a couple of hours later. So, recently I decided to ... Read more
One Small Victory - Avoiding the Caffeine Temptation
This afternoon after lunch, I felt really sluggish and started to develop a headache. I really wanted to make a cup of coffee, but past experience has taught me that medicating with caffeine and/or sugar is NOT a good idea - it only makes me fe... Read more
