I’m sure I’ve mentioned that I have been keeping a journal since I was eight years old.  Recently, I’ve been combing through these treasured books for anything about my mom.  And of course, all of the delicious bits of melodrama and unintentional comedy that come from being ages 12 through 14. EXHIBIT A: Of course … Continue reading

Weekly Round-Uppiness

I’ve decided it is high time to reinstate the Weekly Round-Up, for a myriad of reasons: I need to keep better track of my workouts. I like talking about myself. My weight is a creeper.  I’m currently sitting at 144.2; and judging by yesterday’s photos, my body is looking about ten pounds heavier than that. … Continue reading

Bibliophile, Interrupted.

Ah, parenting of the very young: a surefire way to obliterate your love of a good book (or even a good blog post: as I sat to write, my daughter began fussing). I have a floppity-jillion books I want to read, and just precious little time in which to sit down and actually read them.  … Continue reading

Intuitive Eating

This post was written Wednesday, March 13th, lest you think A slept so soundly last night. By some stroke of good fortune, Ailie slept last night.  I put her in her crib slightly awake around 7:40.  At midnight, I woke in a panic and crept to her room. Still breathing. I went back to bed, … Continue reading

Emotional Eating

Texts and Burpees

Friends!  School is proving to be a challenge, in more ways then one.  Take my Facebook status update from the first night: First night back to school!  Forgot my parking pass; did not buy the book; I don’t own a financial calculator; didn’t print the syllabus; and I have spit-up on my boot.  I’m doing … Continue reading

Book Club

It’s no secret that I love me some books; but since I finished Drop Dead Healthy, I’ve been unable to power through a new story: fiction or nonfiction.  I’ve been floating around between a few different reads:  7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker So I discovered Jen Hatmaker on someone’s Facebook page, and … Continue reading

Weekly-Round Up: Everything Hurts, Dudes

Welp, it’s taken me a LONG time to recover from the half-marathon, so please excuse my absence.  The day after, my lower extremities felt like bricks.  As my legs began to heal around mid-week, I moved too quickly while getting granola bites out of the oven, and BAM: neck’s out.  I can just about move … Continue reading

We’re Back!

…and recommitted! First, let me apologize for my blogging hiatus.  We were in Philly for 9 nights – 8 full days – and in that short time, we saw over 80 friends and family.  There were dinners and lunches and a date night and time spent sneaking away for runs (four total).  Each night we feel into … Continue reading
