Soreness, Hip Pain & Why Did He Make Waffles

  As I put together this week’s workout recap, I am not really sure where to begin. Even though I update each day’s workout as they happen in order for this post to be accurate, I think this week needs some additional explaining. Let’s see. First, I ended up running 5 miles last SUNDAY which is […]

Memorial Day Weekend Sentence Per Picture

  When you stop for ice cream at Marvel the Friday night of Memorial Day weekend and realize it’s still light enough to take an outdoor picture, you know that summer has arrived even though the calendar says technically not yet. And no, it’s not a typo – I totally meant Marvel, not Carvel! Marvel has been in business […]

Thinking Out Loud 12.24.15

  How do you feel about Facebook’s time hop feature? Like, sometimes I love it and laugh and reshare the post and then sometimes I see things I would like to forget. Facebook reminded me this week though that a year ago, right now, we were fa la la-ing in Disney World and I was basically in heaven […]

WIAW- Recent Eats, Same & Different

    I wasn’t really sure if I would have a What I Ate Wednesday post for this week. I eat a lot of the same stuff all of the time and just when I think it’s different, I realize it’s the same ingredients arranged in a different way. How many bowls of oatmeal can you look at? None […]

Coconut Oil Is The Best Moisturizer

  Remember when I started using Coconut Oil for things other than cooking such as mixed with honey as a hair mask? Well that Trader Joe’s jar of Coconut Oil is now my skin’s best friend because it soothes and moisturizes like nothing else. I almost feel human again. I swear I have felt so off for so many […]

  Happy National Ice Cream Day! Okay, Red Mango isn’t technically ice cream but we had it yesterday so I am sharing the photo with you this morning. On the ice cream front though, we must locate this new Peanut Butter & Co./Turkey Hill collaboration special flavor: Let’s keep our eyes on the freezer cases in […]

Three Tip Tuesday – Cookies and Earth’s Best Review

I’m tired. I don’t often say it but today I feel the need to inform you that I am a bit tired. I decided I was tired yesterday afternoon. You should know that deciding you are tired on a Monday afternoon is not OK. Nor is it OK to discover you have two completely overripe bananas […]

Compromise Meals

I am not perfect. I know I know, this may come as a shock to you all. But, I cannot tell a lie, I have some faults. You would think that once I became an adult, and then a mother, I would have learned how to probably open a package. And, not only learn how, […]

Making The Switch

I had every intention of unplugging myself from the virtual world for the entire weekend but I wanted to pop in and say hello. Hello! Ok, really, I had a few things to say that just couldn’t wait. First, my long run yesterday morning was simply fabulous. No, I did not chick that guy on my […]

Sunday Recap – Crosstrain and Cheesecake

Rise and shine people, time to start the week! I am getting ready to go for my morning run shortly. I forced myself to cross train yesterday because I realized I have been running every day without many elliptical or spin days in between. But I know me. I know that there is always a chance that as […]

Enjoying the Moment

While the rest of my fellow New Yorkers were heading east Friday afternoon out of the city and to the island, I was leaving Long Island and heading west. Into the city. I snapped this photo of the Freedom Tower while I waited to go through the Midtown Tunnel. I can tell you that it was a […]

Three Tip Tuesday – Waffle Iron Recipes

Spin Tuesday it is not, at least not for me. I once again can’t get to Lifetime which leaves me only with the option to spin next Tuesday before my membership is frozen August 1st. I am not all that upset about missing spin though. I am more than happy to run instead. I ran 5 miles yesterday […]
