Whirlwind Week

This past week went by so quickly. I was so busy at work and at home! In the blink of an eye I was waking up on Friday morning and heading to work… The only thing that kept the week on track was the fact that I took time on Monday to meal plan -…… Continue reading Whirlwind Week



Over the weekend we had our first blizzard of 2017. I hope it is our only blizzard of 2017 – but you never know. For this blizzard I was with my mom at her house, and it was nice and cozy with the fireplace going almost all weekend! We started our Saturday with some amazing…… Continue reading Blizzard

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.

A Confession for Monday…

Today, overall, I did an ok job getting back into the swing of things. Here is how the day went,…… Continue reading A Confession for Monday…

  Some how it has been a full week since my last blog post! I am not quite sure how that happened – but here I am to make up for it! On Tuesday morning I had a very fall / winter-ish breakfast. HOT oatmeal. The one thing that made it summery was the amazingly…… Continue reading Tuesday

Pain, pain, go away.

Seriously, WTF? Ugh. Ok, for the record – today was a pretty good day. Besides the fact that I was so exhausted when my alarm went off this morning I simply could NOT get up and get going to save my life. Nope, I just could not do it. Even though I went to bed…… Continue reading Pain, pain, go away.

Post Race Recovery

Hi All: Sorry I have been away for a couple of days. Not too much to report, but I have survived the last couple of days since the half marathon. I took Monday off from work to recover. My knees were sore, and my quads were not exactly thrilled with me on Monday. But all…… Continue reading Post Race Recovery


Oats in a Jar

I finally did something more productive than making coffee today – about two hours after waking up I finally made breakfast. Today’s breakfast was amazing, oats in an almond butter jar! 🙂 So, if you read food blogs, you might have heard about oats in a jar. But if you haven’t here is the deal.…… Continue reading Oats in a Jar
