2012 – Day 45

Hi there – How was your day today? I had a pretty good day – and I’m not going to lie, I had a few treats 🙂 It started with breakfast. I had an amazing cranberry orange muffin from Seven Stars that I picked up for myself yesterday afternoon. (I am always thinking ahead when…… Continue reading 2012 – Day 45


Saturday Morning: The Tale of Two Coffee Shops

For the record, Friday was not a stellar day for me. I spent most of the day at work with weird sharp pains in my stomach area, on my left side. When I was sick with appendicitis, I never had feelings like this in my right side or else I would have gone to the…… Continue reading Saturday Morning: The Tale of Two Coffee Shops

But I must say that I have done…… Continue reading Cooking Vegetables


The Best Day Off…

Another day, another ginger scone

So, I made it to the gym again – it was rough going this morning. I had zero motivation, but somehow I managed to get going. I walked 2.25 miles again today, in just under 40 minutes. Then I biked and I got my ‘level’ up to 5 today. I did 2 1/2 miles on…… Continue reading Another day, another ginger scone


A Relaxing Sunday…

It does not get better than this! I have had such a relaxing day. I slept in just a bit (9 o’clock is awesome considering I wake up at 5:45 during the week). Mark and I walked to one of our new weekend hangouts, our neighborhood Seven Stars: This Seven Stars is especially cool -…… Continue reading A Relaxing Sunday…



The other day I was at my favorite bakery to pick up a ginger biscuit. However, I was there at lunch time and I was taken aback by their sandwich selection. I picked up a turkey sandwich to split with Mark. I could not resist: It was a turkey sandwich with an avocado aioli, apple…… Continue reading Lunch
