Sunday Notes

The Sunday Operation Beautiful notes are posted!   There's even a note from Sara, who is serving in Iraq!  Our military ladies are especially beautiful, don't you think? :) Check out all the notes at www.OperationBeautiful.com.   The Husband and I are off for a bike ride!  See you later with a recap.  :)  Have [...]


Does car shopping count as cardio?  We shopped for FIVE AND A HALF HOURS, visiting about eight dealerships and staggering around the lots in 100 degree heat. It was BOILING outside!  The Husband and I were sweating buckets as we test-drove, crunched numbers, and haggled with salesmen.   The result?  Well, we don't have a [...]

I've decided to start posting the Operation Beautiful notes in a separate post (now one of four posts per day!)  I'm getting so many -- which is awesome -- but it's getting hard to manage including the notes in every post.  So, expect one separate Operation Beautiful post for day (for as long as this [...]


Morning Run

I had a great run this morning with the lovely Megan!  It's ironic, but we live only 3.0 miles away from each other! She is so sweet and I can tell we're going to be good friends.  :)   I woke up around 5:45 AM, got dressed in my running clothes while still half-awake, and [...]


Healthy Living Summit

Introducing.... The Healthy Living Summit sponsored by Stonyfield, Zesty Cooks, and Foodbuzz!   Four months ago, Kath, Tina, Jenna, Meghann, Heather, and I began exchanging e-mails about how badly we all wanted to meet up in "real life."  Then, we realized:  Wouldn't it be great if we could get all the other bloggers and readers there, [...]

Get Excited!!

Kath, Tina, Jenna, Meghann, Heather, and I are pleased to announce that....   Official details of the Healthy Lifestyle Summit will be announced TOMORROW!   Get excited and stay tuned!


I'm glad I decided to FOCUS on eating more veggies and fruits and a greater variety of foods in general (read: not a million PB sammies and granola bars) because it's making me feel SO much more energetic!   I had a lovely lunch:   I found this great new Wolfgang Puck soup at my [...]


A Sunny Morning!

So, my full-time work schedule has  changed a little bit.  Instead of working Monday through Thursday from 7 AM to 5:30, I'm now working Monday through Thursday from 8 AM to 5:30 and a half day on Friday.  It's still 40 hours, but I get to start later, which is soooo exciting.   I took [...]
