french onion soup!
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!

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!
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.
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 sparkpeople.com again for a little bit, reading ... Read more
sorry i was gone for so long!
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
still sick! arg!!!
just can't seem to shake this cold! it's been a week and i'm still struggling with a very sore throat, stuffy and aching head, occasional fever, and wet cough. and to make it even worse...i gave it to my poor husband, so we're both pretty misera... 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
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
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
back after a little break
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
short and sweet
it's too hot for complete sentences so i'm using bullet points today. i promise tomorrow i'll really be a writer. (really...i'm looking for writing jobs. i can write. i promise.)
-walked almost 3 miles in 100 degree weather. i'm a moron, bu... Read more
hot and dangerous
(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
the good and the bad and the 5%
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

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
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
