I made it to yoga class this morning!  And once again, I found myself thinking, “Why don’t I do this more often?” It feels so good. I’m still taking regular vinyasa flow classes; I just modify the poses as necessary (no inversions and no laying flat on my back).  22 weeks pregnant, and I can [...]

Dave!

Yesterday was a fun day that ended (really, really late) with an awesome concert.  Talk about a fun Tuesday! Double Rainbow!   Our morning was spent running around – literally and figuratively.  Henry and I ran/walk about 2.5 miles.  Pushing the jogging stroller is NO JOKE lately.  I felt really good afterwards, though.  Don’t you [...]

Focus on the Can

My healthy living motto has always been “small changes add up to something amazing.”  I love this philosophy because it’s so attainable.  Even in the face of worries (big and small) and changes (big and small), it’s not so hard to make just one more positive choice.  I don’t have to be perfect.  I don’t [...]

I’m Baaaack

We’re back from our vacation!  Thank you for bearing with me while I published ‘flashback posts’ last week.  Since I started this blog in 2008, I have never taken a true long vacation sans blogging (I even blogged on my honeymoon!).  But this past week, I didn’t crack my laptop once.  Not a single time.  [...]

I’m reposting some oldies but goodies this week.  Hope you enjoy! ——————————- It’s no secret that I prefer to exercise outdoors.  I’ve always felt rather trapped in gyms – I know some people love the gym experience, but it’s just not for me.  There are some moments, of course, when I must exercise inside.  Last [...]

Flashback Post: Nifty Blogger Tips

I’m reposting some oldies but goodies this week.  Hope you enjoy! ——————————- In honor of little ideas that can make a big difference, I thought I’d link to seven tips from bloggers – plus one tip from me.  These tips aren’t necessarily life-changing (well, I think my sock bun hair trick is pretty damn cool) [...]

Flashback post: Stuffed Potato Skin Shells

I’m reposting some oldies but goodies this week.  Hope you enjoy! ------------------------------- Oh my.  Oh my.  Quick – get thee to a kitchen!

I’m reposting some oldies but goodies this week.  Hope you enjoy! ——————————- Very often, the media makes something seem like a bigger deal than it actually is.  And sometimes, because the media makes something seem important, it actually becomes a real-life battle.  Quite the vicious cycle.  In my eyes, that’s how the so-called Mommy Wars [...]

I’m reposting some oldies but goodies this week.  Hope you enjoy! ------------------------------- Recently, I got an interesting email from a reader that prompted an even more intriguing Google hunt and conversation with DadHTP. Sharon emailed me to say, “While researching some upcoming races I discovered that one had a Clydesdale/Athena category. I had heard of [...]

Doin’ In On My Own

So, I haven’t been doing much running.  I think I did a run/walk last week, but this week, it’s been all about the walk.  Kristien and I have been doing a 1.5-mile stroll each morning while he pushes Henry in the jogging stroller.  Each time we go, I dress like I could be going for [...]

Our {Very Belated} Wedding Recap

Just for fun – I thought I’d write my Wedding Recap.  Yes, it was five and a half years ago, but I don’t think I ever wrote a recap (I know that Meghann posted one for me while I was on my honeymoon).  Can I just say that I am SO grateful that I did [...]
