Ever have one of those nights where you just need a tasty meal in a hurry?  I had one of those nights earlier this week.  I worked late and was starving by the time I got home.  I wanted something tasty.  I wanted something quick.  I wanted something that wouldn’t blow my Weight Watchers PointsPlus […]

I’m very excited to share with you another running/cycling/triathlon gear favorite of mine and a company I have been working with for a few weeks now: My Race Ragz! In fact, this is almost a post best told in pictures. Except that there are some pretty cool stories behind the pictures too. My Race Ragz […]

On our ‘out-to-eat’ nights, I give my kids the choice to pick we’re going, and 9 times out of 10 they choose SUBWAY! It makes me happy to know that my kids look at SUBWAY as a treat, as somewhere FUN to go out to dinner! What also makes me happy is SUBWAY is now […]

I came across my first Bondi Band last summer at the expo for the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll 1/2 marathon I was participating in, and my running ‘do was forever-changed. There were literally hundreds of stretchy bands to choose from with so many different slogans and colors. I appropriately chose a headband adorned with […]

With the promise of Fall just around the corner, my family is gearing up for one of our favorite cool weather activities! Making S’mores! The foundation of our s’mores is New Morning Organic Honey Grahams, a product brought to us by Attune Foods. New Morning Graham Crackers were the first organic graham crackers on the […]

I try really hard not to pick up ‘fast food’ very often, but as a mom of two young children, I have to be honest…there are days when the only way we’re all getting fed is if I grab something quick. Thankfully, for those days, I have Subway. Subway has been my go-to for fast, […]

Thank you to LUNA Protein for providing me a LUNA Protein sample pack to review. The opinions I’ve expressed here are solely my own and represent my honest viewpoint. School started on Monday. I think I could probably end this post here, and you’d totally get that it’s been a crazy week. Living in the […]

Ya’ll know I love salad.  I eat it almost every day.  My kids have grown up eating it since they were old enough to eat salad.  In fact, a salad is one of the few veggie-type items that I can count on them eating.  It is awesome! Recently, we invited some friends over and all […]

I thought I would take this week’s Saturday Review in a slightly different direction from the norm. Instead of reviewing a food product, DVD, etc., this week I’m going to review a website. I first heard of the Me You Health Daily Challenge website back in December from a friend on Twitter. I finally got […]

We have a winner. It is #17 ConvertingMe! Please email me [email protected] so we can get your prize off to you. Congratulations. Today is August 6 and that doesn’t make me very happy. It means I’m in the final weeks of my summer vacation from school. My staff meeting is August 18 and once I’m […]

Deep in the jungle of that room that a lot of us have where we throw things when all of a sudden company is coming (We all have that room, right? No? OK, then.), I was on a mission to find a very rare species of exercise machine. This exercise machine is so rare, that […]

UPDATE — I’d likely to congratulate Adah and Brookefor being the two winners. Congratulations, ladies!! If I could target any one part of my body to tone up overnight, it would definitely be my abs and core. But honestly, I cannot stand resistance work. I don’t do it nearly often enough, and the idea of […]

I love kitchen gadgets!  There, I said it.  Over the years, I’ve tried a plethora of different things: choppers, graters, zesters, slicers, etc.  You name it, I’ve probably tried.  Some work really well.  Others … yeah, not so much.  Even with that, I’ve never given up on my quest for the perfect gadgets. This just […]
