Snow Day And Fitness Freedom

benji and me

    We had another snow day yesterday. I must admit, I was actually happy that the schools were closed. My son was with his dad all weekend, up late with the Super Bowl Sunday night and lately he enjoys sleeping which is the complete opposite of how he used to be when he was […]

Home Pace and Reinventing the Apple With Peanut Butter Dessert

  When my son was little, we were rarely home during the day. I always had us somewhere; playgroups, meals out, rides in the car so that he would nap and I could drive through a Dunkin Donuts as well as just about anywhere a stroller was welcome. Being out with a baby/toddler though isn’t all that […]

Weekend Recap and Mixing Up The Menu

Well hello!  I almost didn’t wake up on time for me this morning – between the sun rising later and later and my new cable box which lacks a clock on the display, I woke up in the dark and without seeing the time, assumed it was 3:00 am and went back to sleep. It was not 3:00 am. […]

I just didn’t want to believe the meteorologist on television so I consulted my weather app to decide if it was truly too cold outside for my “planned”  hilly run. “Poor day for outside fitness.” Uh huh. And I could have done without the big […]

Milestone Recipe Moment

Yesterday’s Workout: One hour Spin Class at Lifetime Fitness with my favorite instructor, Ernie. That one hour with Ernie flies by so fast you don’t even have time to check your phone to see how many minutes have passed. Between the incredible mix of music and the constant changing up of the spin routine, one […]

The Snack Debate

Friday already, wow the week went fast! The run in the wind I had planned for yesterday didn’t happen. I realized as I stepped outside that I may actually risk getting blown into a bush or into traffic therefore I opted for the gym in my community. Elliptical machine it was. Oh well. I will […]
