Goal for 2013 #1

January 31, 2013


The whole reason I write this blog is because I have this gigantic, amazing, goal of learning how to surf. I am finally in a position where that’s possible. I’ve realized, however, that I need to have other small goals as well. Something that I can continue through my life (though I plan to surf […]

Halloween and Pumpkin Pie Croissants

October 30, 2012


Oh how I love Halloween. Are there people who do not like Halloween? Anyway, the boyfriend and I were invited to a party this year! We decided to go as contestants from the Price as Right. A simple and cheap costume that I was able to craft up in just a few hours. We were […]

Beginner Yoga

October 26, 2012


I’ve read all these posts, and heard all of these stories about how women have been finally getting the motivation they’ve needed and started heading to the gym, ordering P90X or Insanity, or using the parks and trails near their homes. It may sound like an excuse, but I unfortunately do not have these luxuries. […]


October 23, 2012


Hi All, I know I never officially made an exit in the beginning of September, but I had to put my blogging on hold so I could really focus on what was important in my life, as well as finding myself full time employment! I am happy to report that I’ve accomplished that and should […]

Thankfully technology is helping me stay accountable, and providing me the information I need to lead a healthy lifestyle. There are […]

Fitness at the Zoo

August 17, 2012


Having been an high school and college athlete I was practically forced to workout nearly 30 hours a week. Needless to say, I am not exactly thrilled when I have to do workouts. It reminds me of those 5am practices! So, I absolutely love when I can get a workout in doing something everyday and […]

Italian Dressing Marinade

August 15, 2012


Cooking and creating in the kitchen is a┬ávery new hobby for me. I didn’t, and still don’t, have a very large repertoire when it comes to spicing up my foods. When I was working as a nanny I found myself trying to find ways to get the kids to love chicken, since that was practically […]

Chocolate Strawberry Toast

August 14, 2012


Bread is such a controversial thing when it comes to healthy eating. There was that whole “no carb” fad. Good thing I was was competitively swimming when that was all the rage. I actually got to carb load and it was good for me! I miss swimming, but that’s another story. I am not sure […]
