Happy Earth Day

Happy Earth Day! 😎

If a pug can be green, how hard can it be? I love this video! It’s super cute. The dog lovers will especially enjoy it!



There’s hardly any food in our house right now, so I winged it with breakfast this morning. I mixed a packet of instant oatmeal with oat bran and cereal, and then added a scoop of peanut butter. Good enough.

After breakfast, I went to Body Pump with Mal. He’s off from school this week, so it was nice to have some company at class this morning. And guess who we bumped into at the gym? Dave and Marie!! They took the class too! It was just like old times!

After Body Pump, the four of us went to Starbucks for free iced coffees. To celebrate Earth Day, Starbucks is giving away coffee if you use a reusable mug. Sweet!

We ended up sitting at Starbucks for awhile and chatting about our summer plans. Somehow, the four of us already have packed schedules”” all fun stuff, but we’re going to be busy! How does that always happen!?!


When I got home, I threw together a quick lunch from the freezer: a Sweet Potato Pancake with barbeque sauce for dipping. On the side: peas and black eyed peas, sprinkled with flax oil and grated Parmesan cheese.

I satisfied my sweet tooth with two Adora disks dipped into peanut butter. They tasted just like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and I met my daily requirements for calcium!

I let the pug lick the peanut butter off of my fingers. He was psyched.

The Green Dress

Woah. I had no idea my green dress would be such a hit, especially since I’ve worn it a few times in the past. Thanks so much for all of the nice compliments!

To answer your questions, the dress is from either TJMaxx or Marshalls. I bought it last spring, so I can’t remember. Sorry! The brand is Max Studio, size small, and I think I paid $20 for it.

The New Digital Diet

Women everywhere are turning to tech support, from apps to Facebook groups to interactive weight loss websites– and dropping pounds permanently. Check out my contribution to The New Digital Diet on Prevention.com. The article explains 7 ways that technology can help you lose weight.

Online Flea Market for PanCan

Until 9:00 PM (CST) tonight, Mara is hosting an Online Flea Market Fundraiser to benefit Pancreatic Cancer Research. Her father passed away from pancreatic cancer earlier this year, so this cause is near and dear to her heart. Please check it out. There’s a ton of great stuff to bid on, including an autographed copy of my book!

Questions of the Day

I couldn’t decide which question to pick, so I have two Questions of the Day today:

How are you celebrating Earth Day today?

Has technology helped you lose and/or maintain your weight? If so, how?


  1. I totally went to Starbucks too!! Best idea ever. I love how Starbucks does these things – they definitely have my business for a very long time!

  2. LOVE the green dress. But I love green anything 🙂

    I celebrated earth day at home with my cats and by baking some healthy vegan treats to share with family over Easter and hopefully impress everyone that healthy can still be delicious 🙂

    Technology has not done anything for my weight but it’s put of a damper on my sleeping habits. I stay up super late catching up on blogs and have turned into a bit of an insomniac because of this :/
    Oh well at least I Know I have a problem 😉

  3. Technology is helping me lose weight, I track my calories using Sparkpeople…love their iPhone app. I love the daily motivation I get from using dailymile and logging workouts. Love the green dress, TJ Maxx always has great deals!
