Week 4

OK there will be no tally since it would be a big fat 0.  Yes, that’s right not one workout all week, not even a second of Wii hula hooping.  The brick wall was tall and wide or maybe there was just one little brick that I was too apathetic to step over so I …

Adventures in New Foods-Spaghetti Squash

  This one I actually enjoyed. I figured it must be spaghetti-like given the name but wasn’t expecting it to look as much like spaghetti as it did. The squash I bought had a little sticker on it claiming you should microwave for some undefined period of time to “soften the skin” then cut it in …

Adventures in New Food-Prunes

Since my evenings were occupied with knitting (and EA Active Sports!) I didn’t have my computer on all week and never looked into a new food/recipe.  So this week I went right off the shelf with prunes.  I had never had a prune and am not a big fan of any dried fruits beyond raisins …

The First Thing I Ever Knitted

It ain’t pretty but it’s mine!  My very first scarf, a full scarf, hell I’d even wear it in public 😀  Knitting is no longer the great mystery it was when I was a child watching my mother and grandmother work their needles with yarn by their side.  It’s actually not that difficult once you …

I survived Week 2 of the new year despite some waning enthusiasm.  Lunches are my downfall, I can only eat so many salads and what other healthy options are there really??? Seriously, I am open to suggestions.  Thanks to Mom’s over-abundance of roasting chicken, this week will be chicken sandwiches-I’ll try to limit the mayo …

Week 1_Adventures in New Foods

Trying new foods is going to be part of my trying new things in the new year goals.  Week 1 introduced crab cakes.  I’m not a big fish eater as it was never a staple in our home growing up, so I’ve been slowly trying new fish over the past couple of years.  Impressions thus …

Week 1_The Tally

First week of 2010 and first week back to work and still adjusting to the return of my regimented life.  My body was in a bit of shock early in the week at the sudden and complete withdrawal from the alcohol and Christmas cookie diet.  I will say that my lunch salads with Wegmans rosemary …

The Great Chill

Happy First Sunday of the New Year!!  I plan on updating this blog every Sunday as my New Year’s tally so here’s day 1… 2010 decided to start off with a cold freeze made worse by a near zero crazy windchill.  I’ve made the most of this inhuman weather by barricading myself indoors since Friday …
