Loose Ends

I realize I’ve left many loose ends on the old blog of late. First, remember my New Year’s Resolutions? Yeah, me neither. If there is one thing I’ve learned this year, it is this: a woman cannot be expected to set lofty goals for self-improvement when she has a tiny baby/is not sleeping/is dealing with … Continue reading

Weekly Round-Up: So What’s New?

Friends! What is up with you guys? I have feel like we haven’t connected in ages.  Totally my fault.  Things have been busy.  Luckily, my semester is wrapping up, the office reno is nearly complete (photos upon final completion), and in one week’s time I’ll have about a month off from grad school.  Glorious! So the … 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

Nurture.

There are so many ideas for this blog swimming in my head at any one time, so much so that today I feel compelled to thank you for reading.  I’ve found a place of joy in writing lately.  It no longer feels like a chore, or something I could only undertake when divine inspiration struck.  … Continue reading

Weekly Round-Up: Where Do We Go Now?

Welp, it’s February 18th, and I’ve yet to share with you my February resolutions. Spoiler Alert: I have not done ANY of my February resolutions. And why, you may ask?  In no particular order: my birthday; out-of-town guests; teething; growth spurts; no sleep; finance class; cramming in moments to study; workouts; cooking; Valentine’s Day prep … Continue reading

Weekly Round-Up: Finance and Teething

My week can be summed up in two words: Finance. Teething. It’s the final week of the DietBet, and Mama’s goal is to avoid the chocolate chips.  Much easier said than done.  Let’s get to it, shall we? Current Weight: 143 Pounds lost since blog’s inception: 19.6 Pounds lost since A’s birth: 47.6 And this … 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

The Gym and Me: A Love Story

Do you remember when Chandler Bing wanted to quit the gym?  And it was virtually impossible?  Not so at LA Fitness (it was actually somewhat offensive, how unfazed they were by my leaving). In Queens, I was a member of the New York Sports Club.  It was about five blocks from my apartment; the price was … Continue reading
