The Vacation Continues…

Yesterday AFM and I went around the area to assess the damage from Irene. I cannot believe how devastated some of the areas of upstate New York are… we are lucky that we opted to stay in New York – originally we had planned to go to Vermont, and the damage there is much worse.…… Continue reading The Vacation Continues…

I am on vacation… with Irene

Hey everyone. So, I am officially on vacation for the next several days. Vacation started at 3:20 PM on Friday. Yesterday AFM and I spent the day getting ready for hurricane Irene.  One thing I love about upstate New York is that there are so many farmer’s markets. We hit up a great market yesterday…… Continue reading I am on vacation… with Irene

Some else made the salad…

Yesterday I had a pretty amazing 1% latte from Starbucks. I walked in at 6:40 AM and was at work by 7:10 – what a great start to the day. I don’t know about you, but I always find lattes rather filling. I did not actually have breakfast until 9:30 yesterday morning when my stomach…… Continue reading Some else made the salad…

Peachy

I had the best peach for breakfast this morning! Because yesterday was a bit of a disastrous day for my stomach, I decided to switch up the breakfast routine a bit. Instead of my awesome smoothie I opted for a piece of whole wheat toast with peanut butter and a peach. I had no idea…… Continue reading Peachy

I definitely think that the jelly beans helped me get through my post-work run. 🙂 Thank you, NR! As I was driving to the gym,…… Continue reading The rest of the day…

Jelly Bellies…

Happy Tuesday, bloggies. I hope your day was off to a better start than mine was this morning. My drive in to work was sub-par, to say the least. I barely made it to work. I was not feeling well at all (post surgery complications, to be expected I am told for up to a…… Continue reading Jelly Bellies…

Redemption

So, this morning I really thought this Sunday was going to be a waste. Somehow I was able to redeem myself completely. I have no idea how it happened. At around noon I finally had breakfast / lunch. It was small and simple. A piece of whole wheat toast, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter (I…… Continue reading Redemption

Where did the motivation go..?

Hi Bloggies. I think a lot of people go through phases where motivation leaves them. That is what I am dealing with today. Yesterday I woke up early, went for a 3 mile run before I babysat for the rest of the morning and afternoon. After getting home from babysitting a little after 4pm I…… Continue reading Where did the motivation go..?
