Mindful Eating World Summit 2015
Dear friends, I cannot recommend this enough! Last year, I subscribed out of casual curiosity. Dr Kellee at the time was a new friend and business partner with my very good friend Renee. The title at first wasn't a big draw since I wasn't looking to lose weight. I already had that under control with... Continue Reading →
30 Minute, No Gym Bodyweight Workout from Greatist
Find more bodyweight exercises at Greatist.com I can absolutely CAN fit this in twice a week, right? Odd how I can create a new money saving habit, a new kitchen cleaning habit, and can push myself to run greater & greater distances on the weekends (even every day of a 3-day version), yet I am...

Recovery is fun!
Especially when your boys are willing to spend many hours playing card games with you to break up the time spent reading on your new kindle or in front of the TV: We've had this game for awhile but at first our brains hurt or we were just too tired or something to want... Continue Reading →

So we walked to the school and park... Continue Reading →
I do not like limbo. No, not the dance - I was actually once quite good at that 🙂 No, I do not like being "stuck in limbo" as the expression goes. It is, of course, the lack of control that is quite frustrating. Before I launch into the complaints - one bit of very... Continue Reading →
Oct 26 – When politics and personal life collide
OK, so I am not transitioning DIRECTLY into fluffy fun from yesterday. There's a transition of sorts. As I hinted at in my race report, there have been some err....female problems..going on recently as I approach that time in a gal's life when certain reproductive systems prepare to take a dirt nap 🙂 When I...

Oct 9th – A word to the wise
I am going to share with you some of the best advice I ever learned entirely on my own but which has saved me much insanity and drama: Never. Ever. NEVER make ANY decisions or act on ANY feelings you might have towards people as the result of middle of the night totally irrational,... Continue Reading →
I passed my latest blood test with flying colors! Cholesterol is down. Triglycerides are way down. I didn't even have to debate with my doctor on medication - she was thrilled with how the Lovaza+diet+exercise seems to have done the trick. Unfortunately for my wallet, the Lovaza is a fairly recent FDA approved pure Omega... Continue Reading →
