Weekends In NYC

Sometimes, getting out of bed on a cold morning is the hardest thing to do but once you’re up, there’s so much to enjoy, that later, you wonder if you’ll ever tire of it all, because there’s so much to ponder, like… A woman in the street that makes you think about color and shapes…

Real Life Transformers

Last year at Universal Studios, I was mesmerized by Optimus Prime from the Transformers movies. As an adult, I know what’s real and what isn’t (sometimes) and I know the Transformer was really just a guy wearing a lot of metal and plastic, but something about the way he moved to look down at me,…

Balance Is Everything

Balance is everything. Too much workout and you get burned out. Not enough to do and you feel bored. Balance is everything. I’ve run too much. When I do, my body feels drained, I feel like I am too hot, I’ve lost too much hydration and I’m too hungry. I’ve also gone weeks where I…

National Running Day

Today is the big day. It’s June 4th, National Running Day, the day when runners all over the country will think about running, go running, invite someone to run with them. They’re will be running events everywhere. If you’ve been thinking about trying this running thing, today is a good day to start. (Actually, whatever…

Running Without A Plan

Sometimes running without a plan is the best thing you can do. I was fasting for the past three days so I didn’t run or do anything more strenuous than walking and a few planks after I broke the fast at nights. So today, I was just itching to go for a run. I had…

Keeping It Real On The Blog

Blogging is fun but it also has to be real. I like writing about the things I’m thinking and doing. I’ve been writing in my journal since my mom gave me Diary of Anne Frank to read when I was a little girl. I have journals that record happy moments and sad moments, times in my…

5 Things To Do Before A Run

Or maybe just… the 5 things that I do before I run 1. Get your gear together. I usually run with a running belt that can carry all my stuff. It has a little Velcro pocket that keeps my cash and cards secure and I can stuff my keys and phone in the bigger compartment….

Conspiracy Theory

Remember my post a couple weeks ago about the Universe conspiring to give you the things you need? I’ve been on a little running hiatus, not running as often as I probably should, choosing instead to do short intense workouts at home. But earlier today, I was thinking about how great I felt at least…

Eat Right

Did my morning workout while catching up on tv shows I DVR but never seem to get to. Like Jeopardy. I’ve been a Jeopardy fan ever since and I remember when I was in Jamaica, pre-college and I used to get the answers right. And then I moved to New York, immersed myself in the…

You Are Responsible

I’ve had a busy past few days. Last week, I spent some time at the hospital with my cousin’s family as their daughter recovered from surgery to mend a hole in her heart. Thankfully, she is home now and recovering quite well. And she’s back to being a regular, Dora-loving two year old, upset that…

Embracing the G-BOMBS

Yesterday I shared the G-BOMBS that I read about in Joel Fuhrman’s book, The End Of Dieting, that I’ve been thumbing through for the past few days. It’s a great book, and it reiterates some things I’ve heard and read about but it also says some things that are not popular with us, like the…

G-BOMBS And Working Towards The End Of Dieting

I’m still working my way through this book The End of Dieting by Joel Fuhrman and I promise the full review is coming soon but this is something I’ve seen several times before in other places and I don’t want to wait to share it with you. G-BOMBS G-BOMBS are the foods with the most…
