Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Winner and Friday Fun.

Thank you all so much for entering the Clif Bar Giveaway. You guys came up with some amazing flavors to create. Who knows, maybe the people at Clif will take them into consideration. And the winners are….

#54– Danielle, you won the Carrot Cake pack.

#100– Ali, you won the variety pack.

Congratulations. Please send me an email at with your information. I’ll send them out to you next week.

I just ate some oat bran with PB but forgot to take a picture because I was too excited about the giveaway. Len picked #54 because that’s how old his mom just turned and #100 because ” I like 100.” Okay, whatever.

We’re are about to tackle our run and then head up to Vermont. We have dinner plans with his family tonight and then tomorrow we are going to the mountain. The boys are going to ski and the girls are going to snow shoe.  Our friend is pregnant so there’s no skiing in her future which works out great for me since I don’t know how to ski. So sad that I lived in VT for seven years and NEVER went skiing.

Yesterday after work we headed to Sunset Bar and Grill but like an ass, I forgot my camera. I had two Black and Blues, which are a mix of Blue Moon and Guinness. So good. There were 10 of us and we ordered a bunch of apps for the table– two plates of Veggie Nachos and two Mediterranean Artichoke Dips. Let’s just say that NOTHING was healthy but everything was good. The mediterranean artichoke dip was layered like nachos but had artichoke dip, hummus, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and feta, all on top a ton of pita chips.  A heart attack waiting to happen. The party ended early and I was home in time to watch Idol. I swear, if Didi gets voted off I am SO done with that show. Probably not but I will definitely be disappointed.

I hate to travel snackless but our fridge and cabinets are looking pretty sad these days. I will definitely be bringing Clif bars but that’s about it. We have no fruit, veggies, nuts, etc. Eating healthy when I visit Lens family is always a struggle because they are a meat (deer to be exact) and potatoes kind of family. For holidays, lens mom goes out of her way to make sure there is a vegetarian option. While these options are delish, they are certainly never healthy. Butter is a staple in that house. His mom said that if I ever go vegan she’ll kill me. Hopefully I will make the best decisions with the choices that I have. I’m pretty sure there will be a Subway veggie delight in my future.

What are your favorite snacks to take on the road?
