We had ANOTHER snow day this week, which in March is a bit crazy for the Baltimore area. Plus, the past few years it’s been unseasonably warm so this winter has been particularly brutal.
Anyway, on this snow day I found myself with a bad case… Read the rest of this post
Millet. I had no idea what it was until Bob sent me some to sample.
You know, Bob… of Bob’s Red Mill.
Yeah, we’re on a first-name basis now and he likes to send me samples from time to time. Boy, am I glad he does because honestly,… Read the rest of this post
Here’s my new, warm, go-to breakfast when I’m out of or don’t feel like eggs. Don’t be fooled by its appearance. It’s a warm bowl of yumminess and the best part:
Chocolate for breakfast!
Chia pudding is a nice… Read the rest of this post
I was going to name this post “Butternut Squash Muffins Take 2″ but then I realized take 1 was more than THREE YEARS AGO and no one probably remembered them but me.
Anyway, I happened to get my hands on some butternut squash puree.… Read the rest of this post
As a blogger there is nothing better than getting a pitch from a brand/product you absolutely adore and use regularly. Here’s an except from an email I reviewed a few weeks ago …

Just cause you can get it on does not mean that it fits! A hard lesson for me to learn. But today I am tired of pretending something fits whilst looking in the mirror and being disappointed. When its so tight that it forces the fat to spill over and makes your stomach look larger than it is .... it does not fit. When you wear it and you feel worse about yourself even though its a smaller size it does not fit. If you are not comfortable and the item leaves abusive marks on you ... it…Continue
Unfortunately, I woke up this morning with my back feeling worse. Much worse. I had assured my husband that I would be fine to take care of our son today and he could go to work, but after getting out of bed I quickly realized that wasn't going to happen. In fact, it was quite scary when I got him out of his crib and felt like I was going to pass out while changing his diaper. Super hot flash, ears ringing, vision black. I was so scared because all I could think about was what would happen…Continue
I compiled a list of why I need to reduce my size and want I want to get from it. (You can check it out on my blog - http://myfuturepicture.wordpress.com/).
So you may wonder why I would do that.
A nutrionist friend told me to make a pro and con list since it will serve as a reminder when I want to start giving up. (which I have Olympic colours in since I can’t tell you how many eating plans and diets I have started to…Continue

I have been pushing myself off to the back burner since, well, the fall, and I have decided (along with the help of my therapist) that I need to do more things for myself, that give me joy. One thing I get a lot of joy from is taking care of myself- and exercising and eating well impact my self image in a big way. I have been following another mom on instagram who joined WW online in early January and has lost 20lbs. Well this is a huge motivator for me and when I found out she was using WW…Continue
Injuries are never fun. Awhile back I hurt my back while working out. Actually, turns out I didn't really hurt it so much, as I just had super tight hamstrings and needed a few adjustments at the chiropractor. Since that time I have been careful to stretch well and anytime my back starts to hurt, I do extra stretches and use the foam roller. I haven't had any major pain since then--until yesterday. My back was a little tight from some intense workouts last week, but not too bad. I rolled and…Continue
Yesterday was the day I spend a day of pampering at a spa with my friend who is getting married in a few weeks and some other girlfriends.
I was looking forward to it (massages, manicures and pampering) but I was also dreading it walking around in a robe or swimsuit.
While I was waiting for the friends to arrive since I’m always early/on time sipping on my Café latte I was thinking what if the robe they give me was either (1) too short or (2) not big enough. The stress…Continue
