New Cold Stone Creation Plus Workout Recap

  My Cold Stone creation from last night has nothing to do with my workouts but it’s a holiday weekend so we can do things differently today. 🙂 I created a new personal Cold Stone creation which if you know me, is crazy! I’m a creature of habit and will order the same Cold Stone […]

My Kind Of Balance: Salads & Desserts

  I had to laugh when I sat down to put together this recent eats post. The only photos in my phone were either of salads or deserts. My kind of balance! I haven’t been doing the best job at remembering to take pictures of my food if you want to know the truth. Breakfast […]

Currently Going On & Recent Eats

  I don’t think that I have ever done a “currently” post but it seemed like the best theme for today’s week in review. Writing: I have been writing NONSTOP for the event industry work that I do to the point where last week felt like one long day. Good thing I enjoy what I write though, it […]

Rain Boots, Real Pants & Still Out Of Cookie Dough!

  Last week in my Friday Favorites post I mentioned loving the Cinnamon Vanilla Yogi Tea. Apparently, everyone on Long Island read that post and rushed to the stores to buy the darn tea because now I can’t find it anywhere! All I locate are empty displays. I bought myself the Bedtime Yogi Tea as a […]

Out of Cookie Dough?! (WIAW)

Jumping right in to What I Ate on Monday! Breakfast: I eat the same exact thing every morning. Along with coffee and water, I have half of a banana mashed and warmed with a small amount of oatmeal before my run and then more oatmeal mixed with fruit (usually frozen blueberries) and Skoop B-Strong after […]

lunch with Michele at Bloomingdales, beach day & really good salads

  My weekend can be summed up in salads, summer weather and a really fun day with Michele at Bloomingdales. Let’s take a look! We are definitely regulars at Chopt. Do I love it? It’s not my most favorite place to have a salad but my son is obsessed. In the Chopt Mix: Romaine/Spinach Beets Roasted […]

  Linking up with Meg to chat week in review style today! Blog Stuff: I am working really hard at sticking to my focused hours in the morning after taking my son to school. I don’t check my phone or my email during this time. I focus on my blog for one hour before switching over to dedicating […]

Girl Talk: Body Image Chat

  Note: Today’s post discusses body image. If this isn’t what you feel like reading today, no hard feelings! See you tomorrow 🙂 A few weeks ago I had a crazy yet enlightening realization. I was getting dressed in my real clothes which involved my favorite pair of black high boots. As I was zipping […]

WIAW – Toppings & Mix-In’s

  I am having some issues responding to comments on both Sunday and Monday’s posts. I am so sorry if I didn’t respond, I tried several times! As I went to sleep Saturday night, I realized that every meal from the day involved toppings and mix-in’s, sparking the topic of this week’s What I Ate Wednesday […]

WIAW – Post-Race Appetite


You know you ran your best half marathon when your legs are still sore three days later. I am slowly getting back to normal although my appetite really hasn’t kicked in just yet. I am not exactly complaining considering I hate those relentless hungry days but by now, it’s a little bit weird for me! I […]

Week In Review #3

  Linking up with Meg’s Week in Review for the third time today! I thought this would be Week in Review #2 until I realized I reviewed our trip to Boston back in December 🙂 Last week was an interesting week since my son went into school late three days (remember, we opt out of the New […]

It’s Okay When What You Eat Changes

Cold Stone

  Jen from Peanut Butter Runner (one of my most favorite blogs and the first blog I ever read!) shared a terrific post last week called Food, Fitness and Feeling Good: Paving Your Own Way and Learning What Works For You. I think what I love most about her post is how she points out that a diet […]
