Did You Know I Wear Glasses & $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

Pearle Vision

    I have been blogging for just about two and a half years now and I am pretty sure that I have yet to really mention that I wear prescription eyeglasses.   Aside from posting a few pictures of myself in sunglasses, which are prescription, not once did I post a picture wearing my regular glasses […]

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy birthday to me and a happy Friday to you! That would be my dessert from last night. Of course my son and I ended up at The Cheesecake Factory and of course I had Linda’s Fudge Cake. In fact, looking back on my last two year’s worth of birthday blog posts, it seems I […]

Love Grown Foods Birthday Giveaway

  I LOVE that today’s giveaway is from Love Grown Foods because right now, as I think about my approaching 37th birthday, I am realizing how much I LOVE where I am in life at the moment. I usually say that my favorite time period in life was around my 22nd birthday. Back then my whole […]

February LOVE & Giveaway

Love Grown Foods giveaway

    Guess who was able to run outside yesterday morning?! I didn’t have my Lulu neck warmer but it was fine; the temperature in the morning was above freezing and the first snow flakes of the day didn’t start until I was almost done with my run. I may not love February weather but I do […]

Gigabody Review Plus Giveaway!


  It’s finally time for a complete Gigabody review! If you have been paying attention to my Weekly Workout Recaps each Sunday for the past month or so, you may have noticed me mention a variety of Gigabody videos on more than one occasion.

Inspirational Jewelry Giveaway!

  I am going to recap yesterday’s race tomorrow (it went really well though!); I have something more important (a giveaway!) to discuss with you today. A year ago today I talked about a spin class that I took way back on November 17, 2001. I remember that 8:00 am spin class because it was the Saturday morning of my […]

Benefits of Organic Eggs Plus A $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway!


Although I have naturally gravitated towards a mostly plant-based vegetarian lifestyle, I will never be 100% plant-based or vegan. I refuse to give up my favorite chocolate desserts and Red Mango frozen yogurt parfaits, not to mention – in my opinion – a life without real cheese pizza once in a while isn’t much of a life at all. […]

#NYTough Plus P&G Giveaway!


As soon as my son gets on the bus this morning for school, I am off to the city for the Fitness Magazine Meet & Tweet. I am super excited to attend once again this year but the stress of driving through midtown rush hour traffic in the rain and somehow making it home in time for my son is certainly […]
