Lap Buddy

Evenin’ folks. I had a great gym session this afternoon – 4 quick miles followed by my back strengthening (basically just weighted pull downs, planks, push ups and a lot of upward dogs) then a trip to Trader Joe’s to pick up a few essentials. Which quickly became a part of my afternoon snack! There…

Walk It Out

It was a pretty busy morning around here! After breakfast I digested a bit and then did a quick 20 minutes of yoga and then took Clara for a little walk to give her some outside time. She did a great job for the full 20 minutes but I definitely think the heat took it…

Breakfast Comes Sooner

Gooooood morning! I didn’t sleep so well last night – my patterns have just been thrown off a bit, probably from all the travel.   The good thing about not sleeping so well?  It means that breakfast comes sooner! I made a grocery store run yesterday and stocked up on all kinds of fruit –…

Tucked In

After lunch I digested a bit and then headed to the gym. I was long overdue for a good workout.  It felt so nice to sweat! I did 30 minutes on the elliptical followed by my back strengthening exercises and then I was back home to find Clara who had tucked herself into bed: The…

Custom Made

We’re still a little low on groceries so we went out for (what we hope to be!) our last meal out for a while! We both wanted salads and contemplated picking up some pre-made ones at the grocery store but ultimately decided custom made Crisp salads would be better. So we left sleeping beauty on…

Cville Cluster Crunch

Good morning! Boy did it feel good to wake up at home and prepare my own breakfast! It’s funny how you miss those things while you’re away. I opened a new bag of Cville Cluster Granola this morning. I can never truly remember how good this stuff is.  I think I know, but then I…

WEEKEND SCENES: FROM MASSACHUSETTS

Hello! I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekends!  We certainly did.  We had the perfect mix of family, friends and fun! Chad and I spent some time with my nieces in Boston – coloring was a high priority.  I had overnight oats with my very first summer peach (!!) and a hummus & veggie sandwich…

Old Favorites

It was a busy afternoon! Clara was looking a little gloomy (I think she misses her Mommy)…  So I decided to take her for a walk to cheer her up! She perked up the moment I said “Clara, do you want to go for a walk!?” The word “walk” alone would’ve done the trick! We…

Put Me In Coach

Morning! I was greeted with this little face upon rising.  What could be better? She stayed close the entire time that I made breakfast… Such a loyal beggar companion. Coach’s Oats were up for breakfast today…it’s been too long since I’ve had them last! Into the bowl went: 1/2 cup Coach’s Oats 1/2 cup water 1 tbsp….

Egghead

I had the biggest craving for eggs when dinner time rolled around…so that’s what I had! I boiled up two eggs and toasted up a whole wheat bagel (this was Thomas’ 100% Whole Wheat) that I topped with earth balance. I love these bagels – they really squash the “real bagel” craving without being overly…

Remember mine and my Mom’s Damages addiction a while back?   Well she just got Season Four and it’s back with avengence! This…

Super People Eat!

It’s been a yawny kinda morning around here! I think our travels yesterday really took it out of both of us! I was thrilled to sleep until nearly 10 today (a rarity for me!) and Clara was thrilled to be outside her doggie bag! I came home last night to find that my Quaker Oatmeal Squares…
