Oh, hey.  I’m back in New york.  And…I cooked dinner.

If you’ve been reading this blog for years, you would know that this is not a big deal. If you’ve only been reading this blog for a month or so, you might think that I’ve never set foot in a kitchen–this is because my summer has […]

Special Delivery

I really am flabbergasted by how amazing ya’ll are.  I’m overwhelmed—in a good way.

While this blog has always been a running diary of my daily adventures in eating and exercising, it is also about having a healthy perspective.  That’s the part I’ve lost, and in order to find my way back to that magical medium […]

Oh, Balls!

This video has nothing to do with eating or exercise, it’s just a really sweet video that totally made me cry because of its sheer awesomeness…and because I’m a big cry baby who cries like a baby.

Now that we’re all feeling that lovin’ feeling, how about some falafel.

Peanut Butter Protein Muffins

While wandering the aisles of my local muscle shop (In my mind I’m like a smaller, more feminine Arnold. In reality I’m more like a smaller, more feminine  Stay Puft Marshmallow Man)  I found peanut butter cookie flavored protein powder.

Let’s talk about Sex…and Weight

Relationship weight.

Been there?

Done that?

BTW: Sex burns about 300 calories per hour for the average 150 pound adult. More reason to get it on. And if you get it on for an hour at a time…Hey there!

Yeah, we all have. There’s something so tempting about sitting in bed all day, cuddling and eating candy. Mmm, candy […]

Four Years And Counting!

I saw this on a notebook the other day. I love the notion of forgetting the definition of impossible. Sorry for the crappy phone-camera shot.

Recipe: Pseudo-Starbucks Cinnamon Swirl Loaf

I’m going to go ahead and assume that I’m not the only person that needs a whole boatload of willpower to walk away from the pastry display at Starbucks.

Seriously, it’s just cruel!

Here I am, minding my own bee’s wax, fantasizing about an Americano with soy milk and cinnamon, when BAM my eyes wander to the […]

Lying Liars Who Lie: A Recipe for Protein Bars

The good news: I made a delicious new protein bar recipe. The bad news: The recipe lied about the caloric info.

This is the trouble with making recipes you find in magazines, I suppose.


Don’t these look yumtacular?
