Lately, I haven’t had what you’d call a “set” training plan. This is a little different from my usual since the majority of the year, I’m training for races. But since the marathon, I’ve been pretty loosy-goosy with what I’ve been doing. Continue reading
I always think reading my top searches is a hoot. For a long time, when my blog was a youngin’, it was always “fruit slide”. Just due to a favorite item I found on Pinterest and put up under Friday Favorites. These days, the searches that come up are a little more varied – and sometimes, they’re a walk down memory lane.
For fun, I thought I would write a bit of a “most popular topics” post. For those of you who are newer readers, this is also a fun way to get to know a little more about me! Continue reading
No, no, I didn’t become a master at recipe creation (yeah right … I have no patience for it!) but I did discover two recipes a couple weeks ago that are to DIE for. So, I just had to share!
As many of you know, I’ve been participating in a nutrition challenge with my Crossfit box. I’ve also told you that I’m sick and tired of it, even if I wish I wasn’t. These two recipes are challenge-friendly (aka, Paleo), BUT – no joke kids – I will keep them on the rotation from now on, regardless of how I’m eating. Continue reading
Ah, Friday. This week seemed to just fly by for me. How about you? It was a little bit of an odd end to the week – we had some crazy weather yesterday (I’m talking fog, thundersnow, sleet, and a semi-blizzard in the same DAY) which had me working from home most of the day. Isn’t it odd how a day off the “typical” schedule can really put you off? Now, I feel like today shouldn’t be a Friday. But, I’m thankful for this Friday nonetheless! Continue reading
Disclosure: I received a jump rope, t-shirt, and rubber bracelet in exchange for my honest review of this jump rope. I was not compensated in any additional way for this post, and all truthful opinions expressed here are my own.
I’m just gonna leave this here … Continue reading
Okay, so I’m going out on a limb here with this post title and really, really hoping this article doesn’t get a lot of nasty spam comments. Okay? Spammers? Go away.
Since I started Crossfit, I had been wanting to bring Phyll so he could experience what I was so obsessed about (In the fall, we had quite a few bring-a-friend days, but I wasn’t able to make any of them since I was still working on training for my fall marathon.). Naturally, I was psyched last week when they announced that we were going to have a bring-a-friend day on Saturday, and bugged Phyll about coming so he could see what it was all about (and so I could get a couple extra challenge points). Continue reading
Happy Valentine’s Day! Or single-awareness-day, if that’s your thing. And, happy Friday! Such a doubly-good day, don’t you think? Phyll and I aren’t doing much for Valentine’s Day, other than having our annual heart-shaped pizza. The only difference this year is that I will be actually making one from scratch. With a gluten/grain free recipe. Continue reading
No, no, it’s not what it sounds like. I’m still on it. But, I realized I didn’t give you all a whole lot of context when I started it! Not very fair, huh? Continue reading
Happy Friday, folks! How was your week? Mine was a little more bonkers than usual. I’m getting in the swing of this grad school thing, but add some snowstorms, other evening commitments, and trying to get my other business done … makes for a sleepy Friday night! It has, though, been a fun week, and I wanted to share some of the highlights. And, even if I’m posting this Five Things Friday at 11:46 p.m. … it’s up on Friday.
Confession: I did something (that I consider) very, very stupid. I work with websites on a daily basis. People pay me to work on them. So, no one tell my boss I did this, mmkay? After all, it was on my personal blog …
Okay, enough with the drama. But I was very, very mad I made this mistake. In November, when I updated my blog theme and look. I was quite pleased with how it turned out, but when I made those updates, I didn’t take the time to update my Google Analytics code into my new header. *Sigh* Long story short, I’m down two and a half months of analytics. Major bummer! Continue reading
