A Story On Measuring Food (plus recent meals)

  I have a few recent meals to share with you today. But first, a story. I don’t discuss it every week but I think you already know that I like to eat chocolate chips. And while I’m still devastated that Trader Joe’s changed the recipe for their semi-sweet chocolate chips (even if they say […]

What I Ate Wednesday (3.15.17)

I burned a pot of oatmeal yesterday. Please don’t ask me how I managed to burn the oatmeal. I was sitting in the kitchen the entire time the oatmeal was cooking on the stove! I guess that I didn’t pay attention to my ratio of oats to water, not that I ever really do.  All I know is that […]

Yesterday’s Run & WIAW

  After talking yesterday about running on the treadmill, I actually got to run outside because I ran a little later than normal…And I disliked just about every step. I am so routine that running at a different time (we are only talking an hour or so later) threw me off completely. I was hungry, tired, irritable […]

WIAW – Saturday Lunch with Michele!

  Wednesday already? Not that I am complaining or anything, that’s for sure. Let’s take a look at what I ate on Saturday, also known as long run day, also known as the day I rarely have lunch or dinner at home and last Saturday in particular, also known as the day I had lunch […]

WIAW- My Appetite Is My Clock

  I often say that I notice the time change through my appetite because I find myself hungrier earlier than the clock thinks I should be hungry but the truth is, my appetite never really respected the concept of standard meal times anyway. When I am hungry, I am HUNGRY which translates as I must eat my meal now regardless […]

Thinking Out Loud – Cookies, Sprinkles and Blog Redesign

  Notice anything different? You know that feeling inside where you “just know?” The feeling that tells you, “this is the one”, “this is me”, “this is right?” I found my wedding dress at the very first store on the very first day that I began the search (second dress tried on), I had my […]

What I Ate Wednesday – Fuel My Appetite

  Lately I have been attempting to write down each run in order to keep better track of my miles. I know I have been running more and want to make sure I am compensating in the fuel department. Think of your body like a car- the more miles you drive, the more gas you […]

WIAW – Can We Skip To Dessert?

  Confession: I used to eat dessert for dinner. Often. I didn’t see at the time how this was wrong. I mean, I was like 23. I was an adult. A married adult. I could do as I pleased. Edy’s Frozen Yogurt, at least two different flavors loaded into a bowl, topped with fat-free cool whip = dinner was served. I spoke […]

Merry Christmas And Lots of Chocolate Chips

  Good morning and Merry Christmas! I always wondered what it would be like to wake up Christmas morning with a tree and presents underneath waiting for me. The closest I ever came to the joy of a Christmas morning as a kid occurred when Hanukkah would overlap and I was able to convince my parents to leave […]
