(I meant to post this a few days ago. This happened on Sunday while my boyfriend and I were in Ithaca.) I know that exercise has psychological benefits - reduces stress, anxiety, all that stuff. I never really, and I mean truly, noticed it ... Read more
Back home from my mini-vaca

Boyfriend and I went to Ithaca this weekend. I bought us tickets to see Bill Engvall live for our anniversary so we made a weekend out of it. The weather was beautiful the entire time we were there, which was great. We did lots of walking around... Read more

g-31039862.html I just tried the workout with 10 lb dumbbells but did each move four times instead of ten and it was good! Burned 174 calories in 20 minutes. I also ... Read more
I love homemade meals!

Last night's dinner was homemade butternut squash and apple soup and a homemade black bean veggie burger. Today for lunch I had homemade vegetarian chili (with tempeh and black beans), and I'm gonna have more soup for snack later on. I'm slowly ... Read more
Exercise plan for now
Monday, November 05, 2012      5 comments

For the past few months, my workout routine was this: running, running, running and more running. No strength training. No bueno. Over the summer I did JM's Ripped in 30 and ran every other day. It worked for me. Now my plan is to combine the le... Read more
Overdoing it?

This week was kind of busy. On Monday I did No More Trouble Zones in the morning then took advantage of the nice weather and ran/jogged/walked 5+ miles. Burned a little over 750 calories, more than half of my weekly goal. Tuesday and Wednesday I... Read more

Uneventful day + amazing video
Wednesday, October 10, 2012      4 comments

It was a pretty uneventful day so I don't have much to say right now. I had a job interview at the library this morning, and I think it went okay. I went for a 3 mile walk this afternoon to give my poor little legs a break from all of the runnin... Read more
Shopping yesterday - so surprised & happy!

If you would have told me three years ago that someday I would be wearing a size small jacket, I probably would have laughed in your face. Yesterday I went shopping and found this wonderful belted trench coat at Penney's. Tried on size small and... Read more

The picture doesn't do it justice, but I just made "ice cream" using frozen bananas, peanut butter and cocoa powder. I've seen some recipes around the internet and pintere... Read more
Eating healthy doesn't have to be expensive! (Day 2 - with pictures!)
Thursday, September 27, 2012      7 comments

Yesterday I posted a blog that estimated the cost of my meals. It drives me NUTS when someone says they can't afford to eat healthy but still eat fast food! My response: ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Yesterday's total cost of my meals was $7.11. About 180... Read more
You think eating healthy is expensive? Think again!
Wednesday, September 26, 2012      12 comments

I've been wanting to do this for awhile. I can't count how many times I have read or heard people say, "Eating healthy is too expensive, so that's why I still eat fast food." You, my friend, are kidding yourself. So as I keep track of everything... Read more
If anyone is interested - workout routine from my body conditioning professor
Tuesday, September 25, 2012      3 comments

Last fall, I took Body Conditioning for my PE credit. My instructor (the softball coach) loved kicking our butts in class, and this particular routine always left me sore for a few days. She gave us the routine on a little sheet of paper for fut... Read more

Life has been kind of boring lately. I recovered from my surgery a week and a half ago (although I still feel twinges of slight pain every now and then, nothing serious) and I'm back to running most days of the week (yay!). I plan on running my ... Read more
surgery update
Tuesday, August 28, 2012      8 comments

Yesterday I had an ovarian cyst removed (and thankfully it was only one). The surgery went well, no complications. However I'm in a lot of pain, and I'm not moving around very well. I'm also not good at lying down and relaxing - I'm one to alway... Read more
