Brand New Kicks

I didn’t have much time at the gym this afternoon, but I really wanted to hit the treadmill and try out my new kicks.  I must have pretty standard feet because these Asics felt as comfortable as any other sneakers I’ve ever worn.  Nice and light, with plenty of cushion and ankle support. I knew [...]

Going Greek

I ate a Banana Nut VitaMuffin before I left for work.  I was really hungry and needed something to hold me over until my Chobani taste test. I tried the raspberry flavor first.  I’m a huge fan of anything berry flavored so this was an easy decision. The verdict? Delicious.  The raspberry flavor isn’t quite [...]

Snowed In

Fun Holiday Movie Quote: “But for now, let me say – Without hope or agenda – Just because it’s Christmas – And at Christmas you tell the truth – To me, you are perfect – And my wasted heart will love you – Until you look like this. [picture of a mummy] Merry Christmas.” -Love [...]

Workin for the Weekend

Most of you in the Blog World like to celebrate Cookie Friday.  So I thought I’d change things up just a little bit and observe Cake Friday.  Okk, well Clif Bar cake anyway. Here’s the before photo of my taco salad. Shake, shake, shake…  And after!  Spinach, cucumbers, corn, sprouts, ground turkey, cheddar cheese, Ranch [...]

Food Should Taste Good

I made the most amazing sandwich!  An Arnold Thin with ground turkey (yup, leftover from last night’s tacos), cucumbers, cheese, and sprouts.  As soon as I took the last bite, I wished I had made a 2nd one.  I also tried my first bag of chips from Food Should Taste Good.  Thank you to their [...]

So fusilly

I had a container of vanilla Chobani, lots of granola, and a spoonful of pumpkin butter.  Tasty! I wore green diamond patterned tights to work today.  Patterned tights add some interesting texture to an outfit and they’re more fun than the plain black tights I usually wear. I snacked on an apple berry VitaMuffin.  When [...]

The Grass is Always Greener

I decided that the best way to review the Amazing Grass products is to try different methods of consumption.  It would be silly to mix each and every packet into a smoothie.  I’d lose out on the flavor and texture.  This morning I poured the berry flavored Green Super Food packet into my shaker along [...]

Soupy Sales

But much less funny than the actual comedian. Corn VitaMuffin with Justin’s Maple Almond Butter…OMG holy goodness!  I only bought a 99 cent packet of the AB, but I should just splurge and get a jar. A peek inside my Cream Cheese and Pumpkin Butter sandwich.  It was ok.  In sandwich form, I prefer cream [...]

Peaches and Cream

I was really thirsty when I rolled out of bed. So a smoothie was the obvious breakfast choice! 4 ice cubes 1 cup of orange juice 1 container of peach yogurt 1 frozen banana 1 tablespoon of blueberry flax seed I finally made a smoothie that was liquid enough to enjoy drinking!  The peach yogurt [...]

Betta With Feta

I made use of a summer sundress cuz Boston was treated with another day of nice weather. At the gym over my lunch break, I did my scheduled workout:  I accomplished 30 minutes of cardio by running on the treadmill for 30 minutes, well 25 minutes running at a 9:05 pace and then 5 minutes [...]
