The week so far…

Is this a long week for anyone else or is it just me? Just wondering. So. On Tuesday I had lunch with my friend Nichole and she recapped her most recent success running the Philadelphia Marathon the weekend before Thanksgiving. I had butternut squash soup and a piece of Arnold’s double protein bread while we…… Continue reading The week so far…

Chicken, vegetable noodles

Tuesday night I went to the gym after work and forced myself to do the elliptical machine for 32 minutes. I really did NOT want to go to the gym at all. But I told myself that if I just got to the gym and did half an hour on the elliptical, that is all…… Continue reading Chicken, vegetable noodles



Hey All – How was your first day back at the office? I was really sad that the Thanksgiving holiday was over this morning as I got ready for work at 5:25 AM. But after having several great days off and being able to hang out with AFM over the holiday, I felt a little…… Continue reading Monday


First Annual Turkey Trot

On Thursday a few of us ran in the first annual Turkey Trot – well, it is the first annual in our house. We all had a ton of fun and we snapped a few photos before we left for the race: My mom and Katherine ran their first road race on Thanksgiving! I think…… Continue reading First Annual Turkey Trot

I have a two day work week, and at the beginning of the morning I was wondering how I would ever make it through just two days. That probably sounds really weird. But here is the thing:…… Continue reading Snack

Saturday’s Run

I love November because I do not have to wake up at the crack of dawn to get my weekend runs out of the way. It was about 50 degrees today, and it was just fine that  I got my run under way at around 1 o’clock. So I finally got up after 8:30 this…… Continue reading Saturday’s Run

North End Coffee

The other day I was lucky enough to walk around the North End with my good friend Jenny. While it was pretty cold out, it was at least sunny as we walked around. We popped into a few of our favorite places – Modern was the first place we went into. We bought a few…… Continue reading North End Coffee


Morning Muffins

Happy Friday all! I’m so glad it is Friday. Phew. I am so excited for the Thanksgiving holiday, but I’m also just excited that the weekend is almost here. Yesterday a co-worker brought in some fall-tacular muffins for breakfast. They were cranberry orange muffins and we all loved them: Muffins do not usually make me…… Continue reading Morning Muffins

Breakfast and Articles

After having an amazing bagel, peanut butter and banana lunch yesterday, I went back to my low key breakfast today: One cup of Kashi Go Lean Crunch and one cup of skim milk. I really love this breakfast. Once it turns to winter I will go back to oats, but this week the temps have…… Continue reading Breakfast and Articles
