Is it hot out? I hadn’t really noticed…

Normally, I eat scrambled eggs for breakfast but when it’s this freaking hot: I tend to go for something cold. Last summer was the Summer of the Smoothie, but this summer I’ve been leaning towards cereal and milk. Not the sugar cereals of my youth, but the boring grown up version of cereal: muesli…and I LOVE IT. If you like…

Goal: Achieved

Well today I made my goal weight. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Just kidding, but I did meet a small goal I had set for myself in the spring. My company’s insurance has a nifty plan that lets you earn points for various activities which can then be redeemed for rewards. In about March, I noticed I already had quite a few points racked…
