Hi all! It's been a while, but not for much longer. I am going to be filling you all with lots of posts on all the information I'm learning this semester in school.

What I'm taking: Health Team Building, Community Health Promotion, Biostatistics (won't bore you on this one!), and Intro to Nutrition. My nutrition class is going to be packed with everything I ever want to know on what nutrients we should be getting, how many calories, how to read all nutrition labels, portion size, metabolism, fat storage, how food breaks down, how to lose weight, etc etc.

Look forward to sharing all of it with you!

Tofu Shirataki Noodles

Just came across this new guilt-free craze. Tofu Shirataki Noodles, made up of blended tofu and the root of a konnyaku (an Asian yam). It comes in Spaghetti style, Fettucinne, and Angel hair. Not only is it only 20 calories per 4 oz serving, but it has only 3g carbs, has NO cholesterol or sugar, is gluten and dairy free, AND vegan!

I pretty much can't wait to get my hands on these noodles.

go here for more info.

No longer a teen!

{a sweet card my amazing co-workers made for me!}

Yesterday was my birthday, and guess what? I am no longer a teen. I am officially 20 years old. Oh em gee. Yes, I know, I'm still a baby. 

I still had to go to work yesterday, but my lovely co-workers took me out to lunch to this delicious Thai food place where we had pad Thai and yellow curry bomb. Not exactly on my diet, but hey, it's my birthday! And then last night, I went out with my fam to Maggiano's, this amazing Italian restaurant. We ordered family style, and had Italian salad, Chopped Salad, Calamari, Steamed mussels, Linguine and Clams, Gnocchi, and Lemon cookies. Yes, that is a heck of a lot of food, but man was it good.

So it looks like I have a date today with the elliptical and my trainer. Awesome. Oh well, it was worth it :)

Metabolism Boosters

I was watching Doctor Oz and one of the guests on the show was a metabolism expert. She recommended these 3 ways to boost metabolism and burn fat. Can't wait to try them out.

1) Forskolin - $14.99 at

This vitamin has proven to help boost individuals' metabolism and burn fat. Um, awesome!

2) Banaba Leaf Tea - $9.45 at

This tea works to lower blood sugar levels, which then helps to burn fat.

3) Balsamic Vinegar - a few dollars at your local grocery store

Add 2 Tbsp of Balsamic with every meal to better digest carbohydrates. 

Well there ya go. Give it a try! I will be!
