Dallas Restaurant Review: HG Sply Co

HG Sply Co Bowl

What is a healthy meal? To some people, it’s one that’s low in calories. They will eat a steady diet of Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, and Lean Cuisine, and think they’re doing something good for their body. In my opinion, that’s not always the healthiest way to go. A low calorie diet will lead to weight loss, but isn’t necessarily high in nutrients or really good for your body. Don’t get me wrong, I have been counting calories using MyFitnessPal (friend me!) religiously for several months… but I also recognize that sometimes things that are good for me aren’t necessarily low in …

Highs and lows and a new revelation

Amazing: Getting to do a tasting at one of the top restaurants in Dallas. I’m a lucky girl! Awful: The way I feel this morning after consuming all that food and drink. Ugh. Last night, as part of a major team celebration, we got to go to Abacus, which I’ve heard for a long time is phenomenal (spoiler: absolutely true). Like any good dieter, I checked out the menu in advance to see what healthy(ish) options were available, made sure to get a workout in that morning instead of relying on when I was done, and planned to pass on …

Foodie Weekend

This weekend was very different than any I’ve had in a long time. It started out the same – with a full schedule of workouts and meetups with friends. But it ended up with me having spent most of the weekend in bed catching up on my DVR, aside from a few dinners out. And that was exactly what I needed. It’s no secret that work has been pretty stressful for me lately. Fortunately, I only have one more week on this project, and then it’s on to… greener pastures? Actually, I have no idea. I’m just as likely to …

Follow Up: Nutrition Trickery

Wow! When I quickly posted my little rant yesterday about my scuffin surprise, I had no idea what a controversy it would generate. It’s taken all day for me to get around to it, but I have lots of things to say: For everyone asking if I heard back from Kath, I haven’t yet. If I do, I’ll let you know, but I probably won’t post her response verbatim – I’d be unhappy if someone posted one of my emails on their blog! I’ll just give you the gist, if I hear back. As far as all the Kath haters …

Nutrition trickery

In the last 36 hours, I’ve worked out HARD. Tuesday night, I went for that 4.8 mile hill run. Wednesday morning, I did an intense 45 minutes of heavy strength training. I posted yesterday about how exhausted and hungry I was after all that… so much that I wanted to crawl under my desk and take a nap. But I pushed on, and actually managed to get done with work early – 6pm! This is pretty much unheard of for me when I’m on the road, and I finally faced what other people always ask me about my job: what …
