Back to life, back to reality

Today our vacation ends … Well, we still have a few more days off. But today we take off and drive back home to the Bay Area. I have had a great time visiting family and friends. But frankly, I am looking forward to getting back into my routine … my healthy routine. Our one […]


Eating out … a lot

I had three lunch dates this week and one dinner date. That’s a lot of eating out for me, especially during the week. On Tuesday I had lunch with my friend/co-worker Melissa. We had sushi. Delicious, filling and healthy. I love sushi. Yesterday I had lunch with my friend/co-worker Stephanie. We had pho (pronounced fuh, […]


Are you being good?

Are you eating healthy? Are you on Plan (aka Weight Watchers Plan)? For anyone who has tried to lose weight or tried to maintain a healthy lifestyle that can be a question you hear from your friends especially as you are trying to decide where to eat lunch. I had a lunch date today. I […]


Showing the love … to me

Today is Valentine’s Day. I find the holiday silly and pretty much pointless. If you are single, you feel bad that you are. If you are in a relationship, you feel pressure. Curt and I don’t give gifts or cards. If we can, we do go out to dinner and eat delicious sushi. Last night […]


Happy New Year … from the couch … still with a cold

My staycation has consisted of me nursing a cold all week. Last night the cold started to move into my chest and develop into a cough. The cough seems the worst in the morning and at night. So I missed spin and abs and body conditioning today. And I fear I am going to miss […]


Water retention & staying hydrated

When I eat sushi (or really the soy sauce) I retain water like crazy. (Curt and I had sushi for dinner last night.) I can eat some foods with pretty high sodium levels and not feel the effects. But for some reason soy sauce gets me every time. Even if I use the low sodium […]


Trying to make the right choices

Curt and I decided to order sushi from Sushiya, our favorite sushi restaurant, for dinner last night. They just started a delivery service and we thought we should give it a whirl. We got our sushi … and a beer. We are regulars and they treat us well. We didn’t even order the beer. Curt […]


Fit your workout into your schedule

Today is my birthday. So I am not going into work. And normally on Thursdays I go to kickboxing class after work. But not today. I will be eating sushi then. So since I am home this morning, I did a yoga workout through my digital cable. Exercise TV has a ton of options, from […]


It’s gonna be a tough food week

This past weekend was already a challenge in the food department with many activities planned. This week is going to pose many more challenges. (Jen had asked me a food question, which I will answer eventually that kinda goes along this subject.) Tonight my work is hosting a function for the home employees and remote […]


Lots and lots of water

So yesterday for lunch I had sushi. Which is a very good choice when trying to eat healthy. It is filling and so good for you. Soy sauce–even low sodium–has me retain water like crazy. One night I had sushi and then the next day weighed in with a GAIN. I was so upset. (This […]
