January Favorites


Hello! How’s it going? Well… I have a little announcement. A few family and friends have asked why I’ve never run the LA Marathon. I don’t really have a reason, it just never jumped out at me. I was pondering this  on a run last week and figured if I got a free bib I would do it. Well, a few days later someone emailed me and offered me a bib. So, after a quick … [Read more...]

The Virgin Diet


Okay, I get A LOT of emails about new products and diet books and viagra. I pass on most of them, but I have to admit that title of this new diet book  “The Virgin Diet” caught my eye.

Well, I read the book on the way to Miami (yes, like all of it except the … [Read more...]

Then, we took pics of each other like nerds… We email each other our pics and she sent me these and a pic of Kim Kardashian on accident (I think). I … [Read more...]

Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe


Helloooo! How was your day? I have been hitting the bottle pretty hard lately. I’m not worried about it, but I’ve also been eating craptacularly.

He still does this even though I’ve explained that we shouldn’t be together. We have a very … [Read more...]

Monday Motivation For Working Out


Hello! I made it home around 2:30am last night, had a little snack and then hit the sack. Tell me you grab a snack after a long flight too so I feel better about eating at 3am. Anyway. One little note though – I flew Spirit airlines for the time and it’s not great. Spirit Airlines Review: Sucks. They charged $50.00 for a carry-on bag, $45.00 for a checked bag and a fee to … [Read more...]
