Where did January go? I can’t believe Sunday will start the second month of 2015. What it means here at Weight Chronicles is that I’ll be posting the results of my first month’s goals next week.
Here’s some of what’s been on my mind the past week.

Food Find: VitaEgg
Last year I shared my favorite low-calorie pizza, VitaPizza, from Vitalicious. Well now they have breakfast sandwiches available which are named VitaEgg. I was provided samples of all three flavors: Turkey Sausage, Veggies with Cheese and Veggie Sausage.
They immediately became my favorite breakfast sandwich and I ordered more (along with VitaPizza and VitaBrownies :)). As you can from above, the calorie counts are just 120-160 yet they have a lot of protein. My favorite flavor is the Veggie Sausage. You can order them directly from Vitalicious.
What I’m Watching
Did you watch the three part series “Sons of Liberty” on the History Channel this week? It was fantastic so I encourage you to catch encore showings. I now understand the battle of Bunker Hill and it’s fascinating to see these historic figures as people who took the biggest gamble of their lives.
Two other shows I’ve been watching are “Resurrection” and “Parenthood”. I haven’t watched the series finale of the latter yet but it’s ready and waiting on the DVR. Every episode these past weeks have brought on tears so I’m prepared. I’ll have more thoughts on this next week.
Resurrection’s season finale felt like a series finale. I think the producers wanted to give viewers enough closure in case it doesn’t get renewed.
Starbucks Account Hacked
Last month my Starbucks account was hacked and the money transferred from my gold card to wherever. An email alerting me my password was changed was the heads-up. I immediately called Starbucks support and they confirmed it was hacked and took care of sending me a new gold card, restoring my credit and changing my login information back.
I changed my password right after and so far all is good. The hardest part was waiting for my gold card with the $33 plus of credit to arrive. So, it’s not just email and credit card accounts getting hacked; now it’s Starbucks cards.
What the World Eats
I learned about an interesting page, What the World Eats, on the National Geographic site. It was fascinating to see how much sugar and fat and how little grain we eat compared to China. Other countries included are India, Brazil, Hong Kong, Argentina, Russia, Mexico, among others.
That’s it for this week’s ramblings. Have a wonderful weekend!
