Year of Firsts: Changing it up…

Hello friends! As you may know, I’m still fulfilling my New Year’s Eve resolution of trying one new thing a day. The last few posts have been primarily food based but I’m trying to branch out. And here it goes:


I love peanut butter cookies but I just can’t love this. I should have been alarmed by the “peanut butter flavored” part. So they’re not peanut butter cookies, they’re peanut butter flavored. And I don’t know why I expected anything else from Quest products. I always see rave reviews online for Quest products and I have to question y’alls tastebuds. It’s a no from me.


After my surgery I was hooked on ready-made protein shakes because I couldn’t eat and I loved the SlimFast shakes, but I can’t quite say the same for their cookies. Totally tasteless. It’s hard for a food to have zero taste at all, but they’ve somehow managed it this time.


Found this watch with a pedometer and calorie burn counter at the bargain bins in Target. I’ve always wanted one but could never justify the expenditure. So when I saw this for $8, I knew I had to try it. I will say this, it really is a reality check that makes it very clear how many calories you are burning or not burning for that matter.


And what did I find next to the watch? I found a power bank for $5. At that price, I don’t expect a whole lot out of it. More to come on how it holds up.


Cayenne kombucha was a serious burn. I thought and worried that it would irritate my sensitive tummy, but it did not. I am not unsatisfied.


I was a sceptic and read some eh reviews about the taste. Whether it does anything, I doubt it, but it was sweet and tasted alright.


I’ve had Annie’s mac and cheese before but never the microwave variety. Let me tell you, I wouldn’t choose to eat this, ever. It was bland. It was a big cup of no thank you.


This is the first time I’ve ordered a calzone and gotten an entree sized container of sauce. Too much sauce.


Got this sample in the mail and I’ve been using it at night. Only time will tell if it makes a difference.


Well, that’s all for now folks. Until next time…
