Tuesday, March 12, 2013      2 comments

just posted a new recipe on my food blog, ginger-snapped. please check it out - it's inexpensive, incredibly delicious, and (if you don't use the bread or cheese on the top), not terribly unhealthy. enjoy! Read more

going strong

things have been pretty good. have worked out a number of systems to achieve my step goals, and become addicted to working out to the biggest loser, which i can watch most seasons of on my apple tv. an hour and a half and i walk in place, l... Read more

nemo is here!

Saturday, February 09, 2013      7 comments

i'm sure it's all over the news, but for those of us in boston, nemo hit hard starting yesterday. as a dog walker, we only cancel or close if our clients' owners cancel, so we had walks and playgroups in the morning but stayed home in the aftern... Read more

back - this time, for good.

Monday, February 04, 2013      7 comments

i feel like so many of my entries are titled things like "finally back!" and "back from a long break," so i'm hoping that this is the last entry with that kind of a title. i've actually been using again for a little bit, reading ... Read more

Thursday, November 08, 2012      5 comments

SO. i was really rocking this sparkpeople thing - loving it, feeling good. i'd lost a couple pounds (and more than a couple inches!), but was starting to feel like i needed something more to motivate me. i got a new job walking dogs, meanin... Read more

this week is turning into a bit of a mess. long story short, my husband got a work email while we were half drunk at a wedding, requesting that he fly to dallas for meetings monday and tuesday. unfortunately that was when we'd taken time off to ... Read more

writing and moping

Friday, June 29, 2012      4 comments

this has been such a strange week. my juice cleanse didn't really go the way i wanted - my husband kept drinking all the juice, and i found myself cheating. i think this would be easier if my lifestyle (and now my job!) didn't basically keep me ... Read more

juice & smoothie cleanse

Tuesday, June 26, 2012      5 comments

i have fifteen bottles of juice and smoothie in my refrigerator. a cleanse seemed like the perfect way to use it up. the backstory is that my husband and i were asked by a friend to do a blind taste test for some market research, tasting di... Read more

Monday, June 25, 2012      1 comments

sorry i've been MIA for a few days. been a strange weekend - a lot of great things happened, but unfortunately depression sometimes beats out even great things. on a positive note, i got a job! it's an absolute dream job and i feel so bless... Read more

hot and dangerous

Wednesday, June 20, 2012      4 comments

(only a little) so today is the first day of our serious heat wave. 95 degrees in boston is nothing to sneeze at, and it's humid enough that just being outside for a few minutes makes me sweat. i kept telling my dog how hot it was, but he r... Read more

Tuesday, June 19, 2012      3 comments

it's tuesday. and while today is pretty nice, this week is supposed to be pretty hot in boston. i'm a southern california girl, so i really thrive in dry heat, but new england is typically pretty humid in the summer. i'm a little afraid that eve... Read more

man, this blog has just turned into a platform for whining! i promise, my life is not as bad as all of these cranky entries would have you believe :) after a rough week and a difficult weekend, i was able to spend a little time relaxing wit... Read more

depression hurts...but i'm working on it

Sunday, June 17, 2012      5 comments

just wanted to say sorry to my sparkfriends - i realize that i posted several very downer blog entries, admitted that i'm depressed, and then kind of dropped off SP for a few days. i really appreciate all of the support and encouragement - you a... Read more
