About yogurt and my BYOC promise

I was just reading Gilly's post about Chobani yogurt, and I was moved to comment on how I buy the plain stuff (I think someone else commented about that too -- saves on carbs). Then I remembered this great snack blog I came across: Fix Me a Snack. There are so many good ideas there, and my favorite has been the Yogurt 101 series. It's all about how to fix up plain yogurt. I've just recently tried Peachy Blueberry Yogurt and Overnight Date Yogurt. Delish. There are so many good ideas there, and being that they are snack size, they are usually a perfect meal-size for a bandster. Check it out!

In last Friday's BYOC, we were to name something we would commit to this week. My thing was to bring my lunch from home instead of buying it. Well, I did it! Yesterday I packed. two slices of roast beef, two slices of swiss cheese, a handful of cherries, a handful of raw veggies... ok and a brownie. And I only at half of it for lunch, which means that the other half will be today's lunch. Done and done! Mike also bought me some turkey and cheddar so I can mix it up a bit. I'm thinking of trying garden burgers next week. No bun, of course. After work, I also made an appearance at the gym. Thirty minutes of hills on the treadmill. I love sweating!

We had some good thunderstorms here overnight. The thunder actually woke me up at 4am. I laid there for a half hour (that is my rule of insomnia -- if I'm still awake after thirty minutes, then I get up and do something), then I decided to catch up on the band blogs. So here I am, and off to work I must go.

Thanks so much for the Fix Me a Snack link. I am going to check it out.

You love to sweat, OMG. I hate it with a passion. I have to get over that. It will be good for me. I think its because I've always been a girly-girl. I didn't want anything on my hands or to mess up my hair. I'm so silly, LOL.

Thanks again.

After a healthy lunch I always crave crap. I'm sure its a brain thing, but I know its way better to pack my own treat than raid the vending machine!!

How did I miss you? I'm terribly sorry, and the problem is fixed now!
