Wednesday’s food, etc.

Hey All – I switched up breakfast today – fruit, low fat yogurt, and granola: Along with the yogurt and fruit combo, I had my own creation of café au lait!  Sadly enough, I could not steam my milk this morning, but I warmed up the milk in the microwave and then added the hot…… Continue reading Wednesday’s food, etc.


A camping re-cap

Hey All – I thought I should do a brief re-cap of our camping weekend!  We left Boston around 2:30 on Friday afternoon.  Before we got in the car, we paid a quick visit to Starbucks and I got a Frappuccino Light for the car ride.  I used to never get Frappuccinos at Starbucks because…… Continue reading A camping re-cap

Tuesday – back to the real world!

Hey All – Ben and I had the best time camping and hiking this weekend!  It was a little bit hard to get back to the real world / work world this morning, but I certainly did feel refreshed after a long weekend off.

Wednesday a day late!

When it is hot outside, I really loose my appetite most of the time. Today I have only consumed 518 calories and it is almost 7 o’clock… what is up with that!?  It was  94 degrees today in Newton… and about 92 in Boston.  That is HOT for the end of May… at least in…… Continue reading Wednesday a day late!

An amazing “new” dessert!

Tonight I was finally able to try this new dessert that I had been really excited to try all week! I cannot take credit for this new treat – Jenna has been eating this for a while, and my sister was the one that recommended putting it in the freezer for a “frozen yogurt” type…… Continue reading An amazing “new” dessert!

Hey ya’ll – Going to bed last night, I was a little bit bummed out about the week ahead. It’s sometimes hard to start a week off when you know you have to work extra late on Monday (of all days of the week!) and Tuesday and possibly Wednesday. The good news is that my…… Continue reading Monday
