Dinner · Lunch · Running


Wow, this weekend totally got away from me. I hate it when that happens. . . but I did have a lot of fun this weekend, a lot of unplanned fun. Where to start? I’ll start off with the good news. I had a post op appointment on Friday and after months of not being…… Continue reading Weekend


Thursday Night Dinner…

Sometime on Thursday nights you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do. I needed to come up with an idea for dinner and I did not want it to be super complex. I really wanted to make chicken enchiladas but I figured that such a recipe (that can take a bit of time) would be better…… Continue reading Thursday Night Dinner…

Happy Thursday, everyone! How has your week been? My week has been ok, not too long, not too short (when would a work week ever be too short?) Nothing here to complain about. So, I think I might be in a work out rut… But I’m totally not stressing about it. As you know, I…… Continue reading Thursday


One Salad a Day

I have read more than once that Mark Bittman recommends eating at least one salad a day. I love this advice and I try to follow it (and recommend it myself to others!) as best that I can. I have been eating one salad a day all week, usually a big one for lunch. Today…… Continue reading One Salad a Day

I am sure it is spring somewhere. It just is not quite spring in Boston just yet… Yesterday it was snowing. Almost all day long. Thankfully there was no accumulation. This morning I took the train to work. At 6:30 in the morning it was quite cold. Like puffy Northface jacket cold. So I was…… Continue reading Spring…


Sunday Basketball

When I went to bed on Saturday I set my alarm for 8:55 AM. I knew I had a busy day and I wanted to make sure to have time to go to the gym for a good workout before basketball really got under way. I had oatmeal for breakfast and then got my stuff…… Continue reading Sunday Basketball

Back to work…

Well, my Monday turned out to be ok – how about yours? My day was super busy and I worked a long day. I left the house at 6:15 this morning and did not get home until a few minutes after six tonight! The only thing I did on the way home was stop at…… Continue reading Back to work…
