  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 […]

Race Day!! LI Half Marathon Training Week #8

It’s LI Half Marathon day! Let’s pretend to be all cheery and excited about the possibility of rain throughout the race. How the forecast went from a sunshine pretty second half to the weekend to OMG stay indoors it’s going to be a rainy day I don’t know but, really, when are weather forecasts ever that accurate? Anyway. It’s much better […]

Spring Time Favorites

  Oh, Hi. It’s me. Just sitting over here in New York finally enjoying some Spring time weather! It feels like the weather had been cold, rainy and dreary for weeks on end so to really feel the start of Spring over the weekend, reminded me why I love this time of year so much. […]

Weekend Sentence Per Picture

Friendly's Crowd Pleaser

  After last week’s all potato diet, I didn’t need to restock very much aside from the essentials from Trader Joe’s. I feel so LOVED.

I don’t think the coaches really cared or understood that Saturday morning is my long run morning. Naturally […]

WIAW – Lots of Watermelon And My New Favorite Lunch

When I planned out my runs for this week, I didn’t bother to look at the weather forecast. I whimpered my way to the gym yesterday morning in a thunderstorm to get my run accomplished on the treadmill. I talked a good game all winter as if I found love with the treadmill but I think it […]

Sounds and Smells

The winner of the Bestowed Box Giveaway is Meghan from the blog, Fitness CrEATures. Congrats Meghan! ******************************************************************************************************** I am a morning person. I have never used an alarm clock in my life. If I sleep until 7:00 am it is a miracle. I may wake up naturally but the first thing I do is look for my […]

Food Snob

Saturday afternoon  I did an embarrassing thing. Well, embarrassing to the boy, that is. At his baseball game. I don’t know what I was thinking. “Mom, you are eating an apple?! At my baseball game?!” Perhaps he was embarrassed because it was a gala and not a granny smith? Good thing he seems to be […]
