Singing the praises of fresh food.
Today was full of farm-fresh food. Egg for breakfast, strawberry smoothie for lunch, fresh greens with strawberries and garlic vinegar (vinegar from the farm, too!) for dinner...
Picked up two containers of strawberries this morning and o... Read more
Oh vendredi, je t'adore!
At least I'm *pretty* sure that's how you say "Friday, I adore you." I was feeling non-English for a minute.
Today I woke up feeling much better. Yahoo!
I wrote all my food in my diary, and how I felt when I ate it. I had four (yes, 4,... Read more
I really hate being sick. Having to lie on the couch, not doing anything, does not work for me. It makes me feel lazy - I don't like feeling lazy.
This morning around 3am I woke up feeling pretty horrible. Woke up again at 5:00, my usual ti... Read more
School is winding down and I can finally start thinking about how I'm going to take care of myself this summer. My goals are only weekly right now - it's hard for me to keep track of anything longer. So this week I will:
Get to the gym th... Read more
The hottest 5K ever.
This morning I ran in the Tortoise and Hare 5K in a very nice little town. The race started at 9:00. I left my house at 7:15, and it was already hot. Like really hot. By the time I got to the park, it was REALLY hot. It must have been in th... Read more
My first real egg!
I bought eggs from the farm on Friday. Today when I cooked my egg, I saw the vibrant yolk. I never knew that eggs had a smell, but I smelled the egg when it cooked (it was a good smell). The yolk tasted amazing. It was unlike anything I ever... Read more
Reflections about May
It's the last Saturday of the month, so I think I'll do some reflecting.
Fitness: I didn't burn a ton of calories, but I was pretty consistent. There was one week in there where the fitness minutes were lacking... I made an effort to get o... Read more
Weekly fitness goal - DONE!
This week's goal was to get to the gym three times *before* school. I made it four times. Yahoo! I have two more weeks of this challenge - and then school is out. Hooray!
The no candy streak started and ended today. I had a 3 Musketeer... Read more
I was just outside weeding the garden, and this is what came out from under a rock:
It wasn't really big, but it sure made me jump!
I went to yoga tonight, and bo... Read more
Buca da Blah
Yesterday honey and I went to visit his parents. His mom wanted to take us out to eat, which is fine. I was all ready to make some good menu choices, but we went to Buca da Beppo which, if you've never been there, serves gigantic family-size p... Read more
A rainy Sunday...
A rainy Sunday = a blah blog.
Did I meet yesterday's goals?
Water - YES
Water at breakfast - YES
house into shape - YES
time to read - well, I took a two hour nap and watched a movie - I count those two things as some good "Me Time.... Read more
Feeling good at 5:00 am
I didn't go to bed particularly early last night. In fact, it was relatively late when I got to sleep - 10:15 pm. Usually it's between 9-9:30 when I fall asleep. The birds started chirping, I didn't feel tired anymore, so I thought "it must b... Read more
One of the most interesting things that's happened since I've been doing more fun outdoor stuff after school is that Friday, while still a wonderful day, does not have the same feeling as it once did. I used to think "OMG I can do just what I w... Read more
The girl who cried wolf.
This is how I feel today. "I'm going to run tonight." "I'm going to do some ST tonight." Well, for the last three days none of this happened. I got really lazy. I often think "just suck it up and do it," but I just couldn't. Last night I c... Read more
I did it!
I successfully gave up baked goods and candy for 10 days. I'm going to continue this for another 10 days - this time, though, "baked goods" is changing to "pre-packaged baked goods." This way, if I feel like making a cookie, I can eat it. I a... Read more
