Welcome to the Crunch Enhancer! My name is Meaghan and I would like you to make yourself cozy and try not to doze off while reading my blog. I'm not much of a writer, but I figured, it's free...why not. If someone out there is actually willing to spend time reading about my rather boring life, then more power to them :)
You may wonder about the title of this blog...Crunch Enhancer. It is a humble tribute to the greatest food scientist of all time, Clark W. Griswold. If you happen to be a National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation fan, you may remember that Clark was nominated as food additive designer of the year for his invention, the Crunch Enhancer. As a fellow food scientist, I tip my hat to his innovative product development skills.
I am a proud mom of three fur kids. My husband and I have two Shetland sheepdog baby girls and our most recent addition to the family, a horse. Our animals are a big part of our lives. I am preparing for my first horse show with my new horse, Frosty. He is a four year old Percheron/Thoroughbred gelding. I promise to post pictures soon.
As part of my prep for the show (April 20-22) I am determined to loose 20 pounds. I joined a gym and I am closely monitoring my diet. I started my work out routine last night. First, 5 minutes of warm-up/stretching, 45-minutes of cardio on the recumbent bike (20.2 miles!), followed by 45-minutes of weights and 5 minutes of cool-down on the stairmaster (15.7 floors). In total, I burned 320 calories.
