Better ‘N Peanut Butter – Review

Better' N Peanut Butter

What American doesn’t love peanut butter?  We eat it on bread, toast, in a sandwich, with bananas, with chocolate, with a spoon, and the list could go on and on.  My household loves peanut butter and we don’t even have kids. The problem is, if you are trying to lose weight, peanut butter is not […]

“There’s an App for That!” Fooducate – Review

Fooducate for I Phone

My husband and I are iPhone addicts.  We have had them for many years now and I think it is safe to say we would have a really hard time going back to a traditional flip phone with no “apps.”  If you are not technical at all, an “app” is short for “Application” and there […]

Love Me Some Kellogg’s!

Kellogg's Bars

I wrote an earlier post about how much I love the Special K Meal Replacement bars. I have had several people tell me they have tried them now and they also love them. The great news is, they are at Costco now! You can get a big ‘ole box for much cheaper than in the […]


Cruise in Cozumel

I just got back from a cruise on Sunday night. We went for my husband’s brother’s honeymoon. I got to spend the week with my husband, getting to know my brother and sister in law and meeting some new friends. We had a blast. We were on the Carnival Legend making stops in Grand Cayman, […]

Chobani Greek Yogurt – Review

Chobani Greek Yogurt

I first heard about Chobani Greek yogurt from a colleague who would eat it every day at lunch time. She said it was like her dessert. What?!? A yogurt you eat for dessert? I had to try it! The first time I tried it, I thought it was a little thick and not as sweet […]

Even Kids Know…

 Even kids know it sux to be fat. At work lately, I have been showing a new program, Skills Tutor, to my students on the computer. In this program, the first thing they have to do is make an Avatar, a person that looks like them (similar to the Mii on the Wii). Well…each kid […]

Brothers-All-Natural Fruit Crisps – Review

Brothers Apple Crisps

While shopping at Costco last week, I noticed a big box of Brothers-All-Natural Fruit Crisps.  In this particular box were three flavors.  It came with Fuji Apple, Asian Pear, and Strawberries and Bananas.  We decided to try them out because there were no other ingredients in the package other than fruit.  Knowing that on Weight […]

Not Perfect

A Real Girl

No, I am not perfect. I have certainly proven that in the past few weeks with my diet and exercise.  One might say I had “fallen off the wagon.”  That is what happens when you don’t go to Weight Watcher meetings, you allow yourself to indulge one too many times, and and you don’t count […]

Happy FAT Tuesday

Fat Tuesday

Happy FAT Tuesday! I wasn’t really sure what that meant (I knew it had to do with Mardi Gras) so I did a little research and found out that “Fat Tuesday” is another name for Mardi Gras.  It is basically the day before lent starts and everyone eats up all the sugar, fat and eggs […]
