Greetings everyone! This week has been good. So far, I feel like I've been consistent in a) eating more fruits and veggies and b) working out at the gym. But I am agog at the sugar content (30 grams) of an apparently innocuous container of yogurt. 1/3 of the total weight from sugar?! Dude! So, maybe another way to put calcium into my diet. Maybe adding just a bit of sugar to plain yogurt...that way I control the amount of sugar. (BTW: I hate fake sugar. It tastes gross to me, so I don't eat that low-carb or sugar-free stuff.)
My husband and I made homemade salted caramels to celebrate the inauguration. Apparently, President Obama and his wife really like them. So we made them over the weekend and only about 1/2 of the batch made its way to the lab on Tuesday. Delicious, and a great treat. I'm looking forward to the next time I get to make them.
As for next week, I'll be conferencing. Less working out, more temptation. I'll be coming here often for strength and panache in the face of a bakery the size of a city block.
