Where to even begin? I've seriously fallen behind in my travel-blogs, not to mention in my food and exercise tracking - but I think I'm still doing ok. It's so hard to tell.
It's been harder than I imagined it would be to blog every day. ... Read more
"Kalt Klima! Warme Menchen!" says this old man, with lots of wild hand gestures when I tried to explain to him in VERY bad German/English that I was from Canada. "Ooooh, Canada" - he said, and grimaced. "Kalt! Sehr kalt!!!"

Yesterday was spent in it's entirety in Potsdam (a suburb of Berlin, but really it's the capital city of the State of Brandenburg). I'll blog about that later since I'll be going back to Potsdam later this week and can keep everything about the... Read more

Tomorrow, while the rest of America will be gorging on turkey and watching football, I will be peeling the plastic wrap off of my pre-packaged in-flight dinner and cracking the twist top on my tiny bottle of airplane wine...and I couldn't be mor... Read more
Over the past few weeks I have turned into the biggest blubber-butt ever. And I'm not talking about fat, because thankfully, my booty continues to shrink - woohoo!

Despite the fact that when I was born I weighed "eight pounds, two and a half ounces" - a weight that has been drilled into my head as being HUMONGOUS for a baby in those days (I had a big head and gave my mother an especially long and arduous l... Read more
This is less of a blog and more of a general inquiry because I am definitely experiencing different things every month. Please respond with personal experience, what you know to be true, and medical research if you've gone so f... Read more
It's called "The Sweetest Race In Chicago" and for my first venture into the world of "competitive running" it honestly could not have been a better day.
The festivities began on Friday evening with race packet pick-up at Union Station in C... Read more
You ever have one of those nights where EVERYTHING goes wrong? Tonight was that night for me. It's Wednesday, which means it's swim night. The day went relatively well and so I was looking forward to the pool. I stay late at work on Wednesda... Read more
It's the middle of the afternoon on a Monday. The weekend is over, the work week has only just begun, and I'm hungry. But not really hungry. Not stomach growling, need to eat for sustenance hungry. Bored hungry, sad hungry, tired hungry, too... Read more
