This morning I could not get out of bed.  I started with my usual routine:  Drank 32 oz of water, made myself some instant coffee (because I am lazy), whipped up the Tone It Up protein pancake and cut myself a 1/2 a grapefruit. (This pic is from last weekend when I substituted the grapefruit […]

Every Monday, as most of you know, I make sure to start my day off right with a healthy breakfast.  I’m still obsessed with the TIU Protein Pancake (recipe).  It satisfies me and doesn’t give me the carbo-load hangover I get when I have too many carbs in the morning.  It’s super easy to make as well.

On the east coast, we are experiencing a pretty drastic rise in temps and mugginess.  It seems as […]

Wake Up For A Fitness Challenge! “Well, hello Spring!” While is Australia, I re-discovered how much I loved working out in the morning.  When I returned home, I realized how much I hated working out while it was still dark out and freezing.   Now that warm weather (before 9 am) has arrived, I’ve decided […]

Were you inspired to run a marathon yesterday?  I know I was.  I watched the last .2 miles of the Boston Marathon yesterday in awe of the determination and endurance of the 27,000 runners who ran.  Every year I say, I’m going to run next year.  I then go out for an easy long jog […]

I currently have an iPod touch, iPod nano and iPhone.  Excessive? Maybe.  But each has a special functionality in my opinion.  The iPod is for my excessive use of apps without using all my phone’s juice and listening to Pandora while I work.  The iPod nano for long runs in hot weather (that arm band […]
