Venting On The Treadmill

  The best part about working from Panera Bread for a few hours is the free refills on coffee. I didn’t even need the coffee yesterday though because I was totally riding the runner’s high I achieved from six seriously fabulous and speedy treadmill miles. I decided that if I just keep sharing with you […]

Three Tip Tuesday – Learning From Mistakes

  There is a very serious game of Monopoly going on in our house. So serious that we left it all set up and ready for the little boy’s next move. If I want to be totally honest, I was too tired to enforce clean up of the game last night so I said we […]

New Keurig And The Fitbit One

  I know you are wondering who/what/when/where and how my first cup of coffee happened yesterday morning after my Keurig incident. It turned out that I was able to play around with the old machine just enough to squeeze out a cup of coffee. But that didn’t matter – all trust was lost. It is quite possible my […]

Three Tip Tuesday – A Life Without The Scale

  In case you were wondering, Edible Arrangements didn’t run any super spectacular Cyber Monday deals. I know this because I checked. To send one to myself. Anyway, I would happily bet you an Edible Arrangement that if we surveyed everyone reading this blog today, a majority of you would say you weighed yourself on a regular […]

Let’s Talk Overtraining

Even though I am a morning person, you should know it is getting harder and harder to get out of bed in the morning. It is cold and dark and my bed is so warm and inviting. It is a cruel world I tell you. It doesn’t take me long though to adjust to being […]

Escaping for Good Food

I realized this morning that I haven’t mentioned my workouts much this week. I know I had planned on taking it easy on the running front – I forgot to tell you that I can get a little bit stubborn at times when it comes to running. Aside from Monday’s 4.25 mile run, I also ran 5 miles […]

Sunday Recap – Crosstrain and Cheesecake

Rise and shine people, time to start the week! I am getting ready to go for my morning run shortly. I forced myself to cross train yesterday because I realized I have been running every day without many elliptical or spin days in between. But I know me. I know that there is always a chance that as […]

Burden of Knowledge

It was bad enough spotting the return of the school supplies last week in Target. This week I have to deal with the end-cap displays of Twinkies. To reinforce the return of the crème-filled yellow sponge cakes, the little boy said, in a whisper, and I quote: “Do you know how embarrassing it is to be 9 years old and to have […]

Three Tip Tuesday- Pool Bag Essentials

Don’t you just love when the week begins on a Tuesday? It throws me off a bit, but in a good way! It is always best to think it is Monday and find out it is already Tuesday. I hope everyone had an enjoyable, long weekend. As a member of Healthy Living Blogs, I was […]

Always Knew I Was Special…

If you are a lefty, like me, you can relate to this picture. I am surprised that all of my years of writing notes in school didn’t leave a permanent pencil and pen smudge on my hand. Not only am I a part of the left handed 10% of the population, I am also part […]
