New Web Design for SkinnyTwinkie.com

Posted by on Jun 3, 2013 in Twinkie | 0 comments

As many of you know, I started SkinnyTwinkie.com in 2009, and since then, I have had the same web design! I guess it’s easy to become comfortable with what you know (plus the set up stage is quite time consuming!), but I have been thinking about making a change for awhile now. I kept putting it off, but when my site got hacked recently (grr!), I had to reinstall my entire site and let’s just say I was back in the whole “set up stage” all over again. I had to make a choice: set up my original site to what it was before…or get a new and improved site! As  you can see…I chose to go with something NEW!!! :) Here are some fun updates to the site: • My logo is FINALLY on display. This new theme made...

That’s What I Call Will Power

Posted by on May 7, 2012 in Skinny Tips & Quotes, Twinkie | 0 comments

More fun and totally random health related pictures. 1. My husband was given this candy bar for his birthday. He ate three pieces (one row), and had the candy bar sitting on his desk for weeks. I finally took a picture of it, just to show myself what real “Will Power” looks like.   2. I’m still not sure if this is cute or just plain creepy.    3. It’s time to put the coffee down…   4. I know that they are both orange, but only one if a vegetable. Don’t get confused!   5. I love this.   6. OK, if you feel like you need or want this in your car, I think it’s time you stop eating fast food altogether.   7. Such a clever picture, right?!   8. I saw these at an airport...

You Need A Vacation

Posted by on Mar 29, 2012 in Health, Twinkie | 0 comments

You Need A Vacation! I really doubt that I need to convince anyone why they would need to go on a vacation. A vacation is something everyone wants, right? Well…not everyone. I have been wanting to go on a vacation for years now, and my husband just didn’t feel like he “needed” to go on one. It wasn’t something he grew up with, and in reality, he just didn’t know what he was missing out on! Fast forward five years, I’m now pregnant, and I need (yes, need!) that vacation before our first baby comes this Fall! Needless to say, we finally went on our lovely vacation and my husband finally understands what the big hype with vacations is all about!  :) What’s Stopping You? I think sometimes we just get so busy with the day to day activities in...

Buh-Bye Google Friend Connect!

Posted by on Feb 29, 2012 in Twinkie | 0 comments

As a Google Friend Connect (GFC) subscriber at SkinnyTwinkie.com (and likely many other sites), you may already know that GFC is going away for all non-Blogger websites effective March 1, 2012. As you’ve guessed, SkinnyTwinkie.com is not on Blogger! : / What this means for you: Let’s face it, GFC never became as user friendly or as “main stream” as other social networking platforms. I kept thinking of what was going to “replace” GFC, and I decided I just wanted to keep things simple for you, the reader, as well as for myself.

Five Years Without Soda!

Posted by on Dec 8, 2011 in Nutrition, Twinkie | 2 comments

In December 2006, I made one of the best decisions to positively influence my health. I stopped drinking soda completely.  It was a rocky road in the beginning, but every step of that journey was well worth the effort. My Name Is Twinkie, And I’m A Soda Addict It all started at an early age. When I was growing up, I only had soda “every once in a while”, such as special occasions like birthdays or holidays. Not all that bad, really, but as I got older, in middle school and high school, I started to drink soda on the weekends. I didn’t stop there. I remember getting my first job working at a bank and I had access to cheap (sometimes free!) soda thanks to the gas station within walking distance. I started drinking soda every single day, and...
