Starting March a week late...
On the last day of February I started my New Rules of Lifting for Women workouts. I was all excited to really get going with them in March. But my tummy had other plans for me. Tuesday morning I woke up with a little tickle in my tummy and by... Read more
Complain, complain, complain.
So I guess yesterday's morning of feeling sick wasn't just a fluke... I took a sick day today with what I am self-diagnosing as the stomach flu (which, I learned, is not actually the flu). All I have eaten today is two bananas and some crackers... Read more
Lately I have been coming home from school and either sleeping or eating bread.
But today, to celebrate March, a good friend and I are going walking after school. I'm not sure how warm it's going to be, but a little bundling up never hurt a... Read more
Can it be????

The power of shoes
I am in a funk. A serious funk here, people. Well, maybe not *serious*, but a funk nonetheless. I feel like Thursday and Friday's BEAUTIFUL weather was a big "Eff you" from Mother Nature, who promptly brought us back into the single digit tem... Read more
Presidents' Day = lots of baking
Today I did some baking. A LOT of baking. Mocha-swirl pound cake this morning, whole-wheat bread for dinner (Brad made the dough, I just put it in the oven), and apricot-bran muffins to put in the freezer for breakfasts/snacks. And today I wa... Read more
The other evening I was at the gym in the locker room getting ready, and I heard this woman complaining about all the New Years Resolution Gym Members. She complained that "her" treadmill was taken up, how there were no parking spaces, and some... Read more
Are you sleeping? Are you sleeping? Yes I am, Yes I am...
I've been having a little trouble sleeping lately... the worst part was getting up in the middle of the night and not being able to fall back asleep. That's the worst!
So somewhere I read about how "white noise" helps you sleep. I think i... Read more
I love my honey for many reasons... one of those reasons is that he is a great cook, and he taught me how to cook for myself. I mean, I could always cook, but it was usually just heating up some mac and cheese or Shake n' Bake. Tonight I threw... Read more

He got me last night, but not this morning.
General Tso, that is. Yesterday after school I had this overwhelming feeling of "I must have Chinese food." Really, I did. So I stopped for some General Tso (and an eggroll), stuffed my face, and crashed on the couch for THREE HOURS. Yes, fr... Read more
Over the hump (barely)

My couch is calling me.
Pumpkin ice cream is getting churned (yes, it's freezing outside, but we had cream and pumpkin that needed to be used u... Read more
