Jessie Lynne and the Giants . .. I’m at least a foot shorter.

Oh my look at me 5 years ago with the GA Tech Women’s Basketball Team. I look like a child. Doesn’t help that I was at my lowest weight since Jr. High and High School. People said I looked great unless they knew me and they’d say “I’m going to hold you down and force feed you cheeseburgers!” I was definitely an unhealthy skinny woman back then and didn’t even know it. Thought I was too heavy, too much body fat (approx 14%), 115-ish pounds. Ugh!  Peer pressure can be amazingly convincing.

What’s been happening in the last 5 years?

Better question would be what hasn’t been happening in the last 5 years.

Keep chest still, using just the arms for the movement.

Fitolution – Got ideas? HIIT

This initially was typed re: Throwback Thursday, which is always a good time to show off 80’s big hair.


Don’t laugh.  I have a feeling that’ll also come back in style some day.  The Flash Dance tops were popular around Christmas and some version of the leg warmer before that.  Just hopefully not the tight polyester pants.  I know I loved mine but eeeewwwww what were we thinking?

Hazelnut Arugula Salad

OVERVIEW

Appropriate to the name, hazelnuts are the nut of the hazel shrub. They are sometimes known as filberts or the cobnut.

Turkey grows 75% of the world’s hazelnuts. However, in recent years, weather changes in Turkey have resulted in decreased hazelnut production, causing concern among hazelnut fans.

Hazelnuts have a rich, mildly nutty taste that make them ideal for desserts and candy. Hazelnuts are the star of the hazelnut-chocolate spread Nutella, beloved by Italians. They’re also used in Frangelico liquor, Ferrero Rocher candies, and other truffles and pralines.

Hazelnuts aren’t just for processed foods, though. Whole or crushed, hazelnuts can be used in home-baking, or enjoyed simply on their own.
