I don’t want to sound like an asshole, but lately these posts have been harder to write because I had trouble finding lows. Thankfully running regularly again after a few months of no running took care of that problem.
High workout of the week: MY BIKE COMMUTE! Sorry, but I had to scream this one. [...]
I’ve seen a lot of posts out there about why morning workouts rock and how to get in the habit of waking up for them.
I started working out in the morning again for a few reasons:
Boot camp is in the morning. Driving to the pool to swim with Nyema is pretty much [...]
When I got home from work, I was met with destruction.
Leela chewed one of my favorite clutches and got into a bunch of other stuff. She used to do this stuff all the time, but we figured out with daily Rock Creek Park hikes she would be much calmer during the day by [...]
Yesterday I went on what I like to call a “baking binge.” I spent the morning cooking stuff that I could freeze and have once I returned to work:
Frittatas, one of my favorite, easy-to-make and freezable 2 point breakfasts:

This weekend was pretty awesome. Some marks of a good weekend for me include:
Quality time with friends. It was awesome hanging out with Colleen on Friday.

A clean house.
Snuggles with Leela. Yes, she sleeps completely [...]
I had to add “2010″ to the title because it was so fun and I hope that it becomes a yearly tradition!
Sunday evening Lisa held a cookie swap for local bloggers and readers. There were so many amazing cookies.
But even better, amazing company. I got to see old friends and make new [...]
I’m glad I set a mileage goal for the week because it pushed me to do two runs in the last 2 days I probably wouldn’t have done otherwise – over 3.5 miles yesterday afternoon and 2+ miles today, both with Leela. Sometimes she can be annoying to run with, especially if I’m trying to [...]
Saturday was so unproductive for me. I woke up at 4:15 am to drive my friend to the airport and tried to get back to sleep after, without much success. One hike in the park and one nap saved the day. I never can nap so it was a big deal. Then I ended up [...]
The answer: preparation. When you don’t bring your lunch to work, you are tempted to hit up fast food. When you don’t have anything ready when you get home and are starving, you tear into a bag of chips. We’ve all been there before.
Sunday evening was the first time in a while I had [...]
