My favorite lil munchkin turned one today. She’s awesome.

My craptacular blogging schedule has been due in part to my poor appetite, but also to my schedule. I spent the last week-and-a-half in magazineland. Office work coupled with my two weekly classes and subsequent class work may have been a wee bit more hectic that I had planned on. When it comes to scheduling my eyes are bigger than my proverbial stomach, I’m always biting off more than I can chew.

But, speaking of chewing, I’m starting to do more of it. I was out and about all day, but I definitely ate more than I have been in the last few weeks. I wouldn’t say my stomach is totally back to normal, but I’ve really got to start eating more. Since my appetite’s magical disappearance I’ve seriously cut back on my gym hours logged; instead of my normal mix of cardio and strength training, I’ve been relying on low impact stuff like Pilates and yoga. I love Pilates and yoga, but they get boring after a while. There’s only so much rolling-like-a-ball you can do.

Now that I’m back to working at home I’m going to try to up my actual chewing time again, so I can get back to the gym. I miss spin class.

I made a good start today…


Soy latte, banana, sparkling water


Warm chickpea salad with tahini dressing


Vegetable soup, banana, seltzer

Apparently I’m really into bananas and bubbly water.
