When to buy a house?

 

For the record, sometimes being an adult is sucky.

I got my taxes done yesterday. I always have to pay something (self-employment has many perks, taxes aren’t one of them), but this year I had to pay a whole lot more something than I was expecting. While my savings account cries quietly in the corner, I’ve […]

Some thoughts on Jerusalem

 

As many of you know, my husband is Israeli. I make a pretty concerted effort not to write about politics on this blog. Politics, in my opinion, is a dirty business and brings out the worst in people. I certainly have my own beliefs when it comes to national policy and what is going on […]

Fill in the blank: I ___ New York

 

I’ve been pretty down on New York City lately.

The breaking point may have been when a guy tried to punch me in the middle of a crosswalk. He’d been yelling across the street, some pretty vulgar stuff, but I didn’t realize until he threw his fist in the general direction of my face (I ducked), […]

Say My Name, Say My Name

Since I’m still high on Newlywed fumes, I figured this would be a good time to talk about something I put a lot of thought into: changing my name.

Since I was a kid I knew I’d change my name when I got married and the reason may surprise you. Miller isn’t my last name. Well, […]

Sadie, Sadie, Married Lady

The Fella (or, The Mister) and I are leaving for our honeymoon in a few hours, before we leave I wanted to share a bit of our special day with all of you. It really was absolutely perfect. I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful day to start off our family. 

The day started early, 4:30am […]

Three down, 60 or so to go!

 
I’m going to let you in on an embarrassing secret. The Fella and I are kind of gross/obnoxious/sappy. We like each other a lot, and I have to say, he’s definitely made me a more demonstrative partner–I’m a bit of a hard shell to crack on the emotional front, but he hammered away until I […]

An Honest Look at Reverse Dieting

 

I’ve been at it for a couple of months now, the systematic increase of my calories, bit by bit in the hope that one day my metabolism will recover from the years of abuse I’ve done to it.

In my “prime” I could go for months at a time at 800 calories a day, and no, […]

Excuse Proof Your Workout

While I have cut back on exercise (Nutritionist’s orders) I still exercise about five times a week, I’m just more focused on strength and interval training than steady state cardio. Regardless of the workout in question, sometimes, heck most times, the hardest part of the workout is just getting to the gym. I like to excuse proof […]

It’s only your last resort if it works…

I made an appointment with a nutritionist.

I like to think after years of working in the health and wellness industry that I know as much about health as anyone, but my body has been incredibly unresponsive in recent months (and by recent I mean the last 18, or so) to my attempts to take off […]
