Breakfast at Starbucks

Boyfriend is going to be crazy busy at work this week with a major deck due, so we decided that instead of staying together as usual, we’d take most nights “off” and instead meet up at Starbucks for a quick coffee in the mornings on our way to work. I’m not sure if you any of you are familiar with Lisa from Hungry Girl, but she puts out a daily newsletter full of diet tips that I really like. Most of her tricks are based on cooking at home and making healthy ingredient swaps, a philosophy that I totally agree …

Unhappy birthday

It’s my blog’s birthday. One year ago today, I went to and hit “create blog.” 381 posts later, “Create a post” on Blogger is prominently listed in my favorites on iGoogle, and I have over 173 favorite blogs in Google Reader that I (try to) read daily. Blogging and running have become such a huge part of my life in the last year… but I’ll save most of that reflection for some December 31st posts. I don’t really feel like posting much more today, because today pretty much sucks. Boyfriend’s company is laying off another 10% this morning. Last …

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 …

Blinded by the community

Last Wednesday’s New York Times had an interesting article that I thought all you bloggers might enjoy: The Fat Pack Wonders if the Party’s Over. It tracks the phenomenon of foodies using blogs and forums to share their culinary finds and experiences, and explores how this is often at a detriment to their health. It’s fairly interesting to see the opinions of the foodies. I know they eat a lot of fat and sugar and other unhealthy things, but I’m surprised to see that many of the ignorantly believe that their diet doesn’t matter – they think their large size …

For the past few months, the 3FC forums have been a great community for me to get support. I’ve learned so much from the women there, and I think it’s a big part of what’s helped me get this far in my weight loss (7 pounds down, 5 to go!). Because everyone has been so helpful to me, I try to do my part to give back by providing support and encouragement to other people, and also answering a lot of the same questions that get asked over and over, that I now know the answers to. Yesterday, someone posted …
