WIAW

Reason number 1 to choose a poached egg for Breakfast: I like fried foods so I like to save the oil for when it adds flavor. Eating a poached egg doesn’t taste much different than a fried or scrambled egg but it’s a lot healthier.   Lunch: A deli container of leftover lentil soup with a mini cornbread…

WIAW:  Low Calorie Edition

This week, I said I was going to refocus my energy on accomplishing my goals – health and accomplishment goals. I’m not on a restrictive, cabbage-soup-only diet but I am trying to moderate my meals and do more of what I’m supposed to do so I can get the results I say I want. This…

WIAW – Sugar Detox Day 7 

Eat Right Breakfast:  Tuna salad sandwich with greens and roasted red pepper, water with orange slices. (Fun fact: I have a summer cold so I had glasses of water with orange slices x about 20 and made about the same number of trips to the bathroom. Fun indeed!) Lunch:  salad with carrots, apples, greens, tomatoes,…

Tuesday Notes

Tuesday’s run was just 2 miles because my hamstring was hurting. I guess it’s time to wear those new running shoes I’ve been saving for a race.  I finished up the workout with 10 mins of repeated bicycle crunches, scissors and Burpees. I was sweating bullets when I was done. For me, morning workout leads…

Wednesday Is For…

Wednesday is for: 1. WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) 2. Weekly Reads – what I’m reading 3. Not-So-Wordless  4. Write or Die (hosted by Shelly) because it wouldn’t really be a blog post without me sharing a little of my thoughts.  The padlocks are a symbol for being closed, being guarded, being secretive. And seeing these…

Blizzard 2015

#Blizzard2015 wasn’t as severe in NYC as predicted but I’m glad they made the decisions they did because it’s always better to be safe than sorry. This is how I spent my snow day: Comfort foods: potato and spinach topped with salsa Star-shaped snowflakes Snowman Reading material Having anxiety over the TETRIS high score my friend…

What If

Regrets, I’ve had a few; But then again, too few to mention. I did what I had to do And saw it through without exemption… Those lyrics are from “My Way”, a song made famous by Frank Sinatra, and it popped into my head when Shelly tweeted the prompt for this weeks Write or Die: What do you think…

Keep Going

The best thing I ate today: And now, because it’s too cold to go to the gym, I have an appointment with these Xtreme resistance bands   My 2015 goals call for me to focus on my fitness and I am determined to keep the momentum going – nothing drastic, just small steps, going forward, everyday. #startTODAY More…

WIAW: Going Rogue

What to eat after thanksgiving when your appetite is still high but you’re trying to get back to regular sized portions? With no meal plans this week, I’m just eating what I love. Like chunky peanut butter on whole wheat bread with Apple slices and chia seeds… … like this sampler plate… … and salads…
