Thanksgiving Marathon Eve

Last night I tried a new strategy to get enough sleep before my race. I went to bed at 8 PM, planning to sleep until 10 or so when Boyfriend would come over to hang out. I figured we’d get to bed around 1, which would means I’d still get my 8 hours of sleep. Instead, he got stuck at work and didn’t get to my place until after midnight. We still went to bed around 1, so I ended up getting 11 hours of sleep! I hoped that would make me feel a bit better. However, I still woke …

I’m an official Marathon Maniac!

The marathon yesterday qualified me as a bronze member of the Marathon Maniacs, so I’ve signed up and paid my dues and am officially MM #1036!!! Hurray 🙂 Now, if I can do one more marathon in a different state/province/country in the next three weeks, I can bump up to Gold membership under the 4 states/provinces/countries in 60 days rule. On a somewhat related topic, a quote from tonight’s chapter of The Looniness of the Long Distance Runner, after he’s finished his first half-marathon: Just two minutes, a couple of stretches and a cup of water later I am strolling …

All riled up

I like iFit&Healthy for finding out about the latest health and fitness news – they do a pretty good job of catching most of the breaking news, and reviewing all the latest books and products.

I know that the consulting lifestyle is hard to understand if you’re not living in it, but I hate it when people don’t get it and act as if it’s so easy for me to eat healthy and workout. For example, I like how the review says, “even if you …

Getting back on track

Lately I’ve been reading this awesome book, The Wall Street Diet. I saw it featured somewhere online, and even though it was a marketing pitch and not an unbiased review, I was still intrigued. The author, Heather Bauer, promised to understand the challenges of the executive lifestyle: constantly being offered delicious food that you could never afford if it weren’t free, cocktail parties where you munch on hors d’oeuvres for hours but then still feel the need to eat dinner later, client dinners at steakhouses where you get looked at like you have two heads if you try to order …

You Eat With Your Eyes

Last night’s dinner wasn’t looking too hot. I mean, it was delicious… but the picture just kind of looked like a pile of brown goo (yum!). I did toss some asparagus on there so there was a bit of green and brown, but come on, this isn’t Rydell (I can’t find a lyrics page to support this reference, so if you get it, post in comments and I’ll have a chuckle). Dark brown and green just do not go together in a very appealing way. I mean, what do you think of when you think of brown and green? I …
