Talking About Biggest Slices of Cake

linda's fudge cake

I’m always interested (and quite often, amused) by the search terms which lead people to my blog. Lately, it seems as though I’m getting all sorts of search combinations on the subject of cake. “Is it okay to eat cake for lunch?” YES. If the cake is what you want, the cake is what you should […]

Sunday Run + Pizza + Emotional Eating Cake


  We left off yesterday with me explaining that my workouts were thrown off last week which is why I was running yesterday, instead of Saturday. Thankfully it stopped raining although I was cautious when running with all of the wet leaves on the ground. The air felt nice so I stayed out for 7 […]

Food Highlights: Cake For Lunch & Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah

I’m still in a weird place with deciding if I feel like taking pictures of food in order to do these posts. Sometimes I jump to take a picture because it’s a habit and sometimes I completely forget/decide not to bother. And then sometimes I think to do it half way through a meal, as […]

Favorites: Pure Barre Anniversary + Cake + Bralettes


  Okay this week WENT SO FAST. I am not complaining as I am totally ready for the weekend but geez, where is the time going? My son has been away now for three weeks and still has another week to go but my goodness, it’s just like that and his teen tour of the […]

Need Downtime Plus Mets Game, Cookie Do & Cakes (week in review)

  I haven’t done a week in review post with Meg in a while! It was a crazy busy, nonstop week. I think most June weeks are like this every year but still, knowing that doesn’t make it any easier. My son had his last full day of school last Monday followed by a few scattered final exams with […]

Scenes From The Weekend

  I remembered everything I needed at Trader Joe’s in one shop this time! Food shopping more than once in a week is not what I like to do these days so I was happy to grab everything I needed all at once. My friend Dina‘s birthday was on Friday so we celebrated with a […]

Holiday Party Desserts & WIAW

  Jumping right in to What I Ate Wednesday! Breakfast: I have been alternating these toasted English muffins and peanut butter with oatmeal for breakfast once again. You had to know I wouldn’t totally give up on oatmeal! There’s no rhyme or reason lately as to which I choose for breakfast, I just make my decision […]

A lot of dessert in this Week In Review!

40 40 club desserts

  Mid-December already? Wow. We planned our quick trip to Disney World sort of at the last-minute so it’s pretty exciting that we are already going next week. Although before we get to next week, let’s chat about the last several days which seem to have contained a lot of dessert! I’ve been super busy […]

Birthday Weekend 2016

  I love birthdays! Thank you all so much for your birthday comments, emails and messages. So super sweet 🙂 I know we are all waiting to hear what I finally decided for my birthday cake. Let’s talk about the rest of the weekend a bit first and then I promise, cake details! The Workouts: I recapped Saturday morning’s […]

weekend chit chat

  Do people still say chit chat? I am loving that I stick to my recent food shopping plan of only going to Trader Joe’s once a week. This week’s shop involved a full cart (they ran out of produce bags on me again!) and a container of watermelon which I snacked on and finished before getting […]

WIAW- Taper Week & Yesterday’s Eats


  Over the next few days, I will focus  more on carbs (if that’s even possible considering I LIVE ON CARBS) and slowly reduce my vegetable intake leading up to Sunday’s half marathon. Recent grocery store race food/taper week purchases but let’s be real here, I eat these foods anyway! Watermelon has become an important part of my […]

Waiting For Monday

You have heard me rant about the people who forget to eat. You have even heard me question those who fail to get up in the morning to squeeze in their workout. I  decided that those same people also fall into the category of Waiting For Monday. Are you one of them? It’s okay, you can tell me. Are […]
