I decided to go back to my former Friday Favorite layout because it keeps my brain nice and organized. I’m not sure if I will continue to do my Friday Favorites posts like this but we will try it for today.. Favorite Funny Let’s start with a little laugh. My mom and I joke that […]

Be Proud Of Your Current Fitness Strengths


  This post has been in my drafts folder for a couple of months already and I don’t even know why! I started writing it after watching a weight loss show which involved a teenaged boy. He needed to lose a lot of weight and the doctors had him on a plan to do so through diet and […]

Do You Really Need To Lose 5 Pounds?

  I am not a goal setter, New Year’s resolution maker or juice cleanse trendy dieter so this January health hoopla is already getting to be a bit much for me to take if you want to know the truth. I think it’s great for some to kick start the year with a fresh outlook on life and attempt to […]

Hi From Disney & Running Favorites 2014

Minnie Mouse Chocolate Covered Apple

    The winner of the P & G Prize Pack giveaway is Sheila K! She has been emailed…thanks to everyone for entering! I had my two most favorite foods in the world yesterday which means I could leave Disney World right now and be happy. The first thing we did when we arrived inside Magic Kingdom […]

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 […]

Welcome Back Spin Tuesday!

It is Spin Tuesday once again! I am super excited to get myself back into the spin. Remind me of my excitement around 10:00 am when I am 15 minutes into the grueling class. Yes friends, this morning I revert back to my motto of, “Please do not call me, text me or expect me […]

Your Happy Pill. Without The Pill.

So. I realized I left one important item off my pool bag essentials list: I spotted this must-have Juicy Couture sun visor while on my mission for a new handbag (which I have yet to find). I didn’t purchase the visor when I found it in the store though. Why? Well, it was basically the only item in the Juicy Couture […]

Dunkin’s Doorstep

I didn’t drive thru. I walked. Well, I didn’t walk thru the drive thru (although I certainly would if necessary). I walked into the store. For an iced coffee. My intention yesterday was to take a full rest day. But it was gorgeous out when I put the boy on the bus that I decided […]

Mother of Year Strikes Again

If I didn’t already qualify for Mother of the Year,  I secured the top spot last night for sure. Not only did I take the boy last night (on a school night) to the Islanders/Penguins playoff game, I excused him from Hebrew School, I sported an Islanders T-shirt in support of the orange and blue […]

Kids Fun Run

Isn’t it funny how as soon as you finish one race, you are busy planning the next? I am trying to work on my race calendar but it isn’t so easy. The only upcoming races between now and the fall season are mostly 5k distances. I really don’t like the 5k. I prefer to run […]

Ready for the Weekend!

My outfit for Sunday is all ready. I can’t begin to tell you how nice it has been to be able to prepare for Sunday’s half without the random debilitating arm injury I dealt with a few week’s ago during the days prior to my last race. I mean, I was so consumed with the […]
