A Healthy Monday

I am writing with a little sense of accomplishment tonight. I have had a successful Monday! After feeling under the weather most of the weekend, I started my work week off on the right foot! I guess all of the sleep and rest over the weekend might have payed off. (Fingers crossed – here’s hoping…… Continue reading A Healthy Monday

Turkey Meatballs, Tomato Sauce and Spaghetti Squash

We had quite the comfort food meal for our Sunday night dinner. We have been working on some home improvement projects, and for a couple of hours today that meant being without heat on a really cold day… so I thought what better excuse to whip up some real heart warming comfort food. I was…… Continue reading Turkey Meatballs, Tomato Sauce and Spaghetti Squash

Happy Sunday afternoon, blog readers. Hopefully everyone is having a cozy weekend wearing sweaters, hats and scarves, under blankets or in a sauna somewhere! It is a crisp 9 degrees out there right now! My weekend started a little after 5 o’clock as I was driving home. As ever, I was impressed with my body’s…… Continue reading A Dinner Creation

Why hello there, happy Thursday evening everyone. It is really cold here, again. Last week we had some nice weather, and then Tuesday night the snow moved in and when it finally moved out on Wednesday afternoon, the frigid air moved in again. (Noticing a pattern, anyone?) Apparently my body (and possibly my mind) wants…… Continue reading Hibernation?

A Weekend Recap

This weekend I was able to stay really healthy! Sometimes on the weekends it is hard to really stay to a strict plan… but this weekend I felt like I accomplished a good amount.

That is also what I always tell people who ask me my opinion. Become more active, change your eating…… Continue reading Thursday Frustrations


Very Little Leeway…

Happy Wednesday everyone! I had a fairly good day sticking to my ‘plan’ today. Breakfast and lunch were the same as they have been for the past seven work days (somehow I have not gotten sick of oats and turkey wraps yet!). In the afternoon I attended a reception at work. I snacked on a…… Continue reading Very Little Leeway…

Week Two

Greetings, blog readers. It is Tuesday night of week two in the healthy eating, back on track adventure. For some reason I thought this week would be easier than last week – but so far I’m not all that sure. I have been eating much of the same thing for breakfast, lunch and snacks (when…… Continue reading Week Two


January 2014

This marked my first week back to real life after the holidays. The holidays were wonderful, fun and even restful! I ended up having a lot of unscheduled time off the week before. I left work at noon on Tuesday (New Year’s Eve) and did not go back to work until Monday of this week!…… Continue reading January 2014

Butternut Squash and Red Lentil Soup

So…. this polar vortex is heading right towards me (and everyone else on the Northeast seaboard) and if you have not already been affected by this cold – chances are you are already right in the thick of it. Today was my first day back to work, and after a productive day back I had…… Continue reading Butternut Squash and Red Lentil Soup
