Two for Tuesday
Tuesday, March 16, 2010      2 comments

It's been Two for Tuesday in my lab all day. That means that I have a playlist on Itunes that I've set up to do double-plays from various artists all day. It's very eclectic, so you can hear Bruce Springsteen followed by the Indigo Girls then se... Read more
Getting Serious
Monday, March 15, 2010      4 comments

So, I'm stagnating around 153. Since my goal is to get to 151 in the next two and half weeks, that's not acceptable. Therefore, I need to get serious for the next week and a half. I keep allowing myself to be thrown off in a variety of ways whic... Read more
Saving what?
Sunday, March 14, 2010      2 comments

That is in reference to daylight saving, because it didn't save me anything and totally cost me an hour of sleep. I forgot until late last night that we had to spring ahead, or I would have gone to bed an hour earlier! Still got up on time for 8... Read more
The Unexpected
Friday, March 12, 2010      0 comments

Happy Friday! I was totally planning to have a complete fast today, but the dreaded Unexpected happened: one of my good friend's had a birthday and invited us out to lunch. So, instead of fasting until 4pm and then having my yogurt and frui... Read more
Late Night
Thursday, March 11, 2010      1 comments

This is a quick blog due to it being almost bedtime. Food: good, exercise: good even though my knee is bugging me somewhat so I need to find alternatives to stair intervals on rainy days. Today I did a little bit of wall pushups and knee li... Read more
Corn Starch
Wednesday, March 10, 2010      4 comments

That is the secret to good Pad Thai sauce. Also true for a variety of other sauces, but it seems to be the Asian stuff that causes me the most trouble. Soy sauce, rice vinegar, and fish sauce simply do not coat vegetables or boil down effectivel... Read more

It had been sunny and I have been enjoying it! At least as much as a lab scientist can. Me and hubby went running this morning, even though he wasn't sure how he was feeling. I told him that running boosts the immune system. I think that's true.... Read more
Spicy Chili
Monday, March 08, 2010      1 comments

Apparently, me and my husband have improved our spicy tolerances recently, or at least I have. A friend of mine apparently mad a huge batch of very spicy chili, and was trying to give it away, and I said that me and my husband could handle it. S... Read more

Morning Running
Saturday, March 06, 2010      1 comments

Both me and my husband were tired enough to go to bed by midnight last night, even though it was Friday, and therefore we were both up at 9:30 this morning. Then I said, "let's go running!" and he whined and complained but did come and we ran. H... Read more
Walking Up Hills
Thursday, March 04, 2010      2 comments

I like walking up hills. After I've made it of course. While walking up the hill it is long and my legs hurt. Anyway, I found a loop on campus that I can do in about a half an hour that includes 3 hills and I walked it today before lunch. It was... Read more
When Life Gives You Cookies ...

Don't eat them! You will be one step ahead of me today. You might know that I'm gluten-intolerant, which has a few times been a blessing in disguise because I'm able to avoid high-calorie baked goods. Well, my loving lab manager was nice to me f... Read more
White Chocolate Tea
Tuesday, March 02, 2010      5 comments

I found a white chocolate flavored tea on clearance after V-Day. I'm not overly fond of "white" chocolate, but I love chocolate and tea, so I went for it. It seriously smells awesome. It tastes like tea with the slight aftertaste of cocoa, sligh... Read more
My Go-To Meal
Monday, March 01, 2010      4 comments

So, today I had a lab meeting. It was 5-6:30pm and I totally forgot about it. I was originally planning to have a crockpot stew ready for when I got home, yeah, that didn't happen, because I remembered after getting to work. Fortunately, I have ... Read more

My gluten-free, sugar-free hamantaschen were a huge hit! People who knew could barely believe there was no sugar in the dough. I posted the recipe: recipes.sparkpeople.com/
