Friday Favorites for Chinese New Year

image.png

Happy (Chinese) New Year! Since we went to China somewhat near the Chinese New Year a lot of places were gorgeously decorated with red and gold lanterns and other ornate art. It was amazing. I scored some red envelopes to share the love from this little shop. It’s the year of the horse. From the Guardian: The Chinese zodiac – or Shēngxiào – is a calendar system … [Read more...]

If Diets Don’t Work What the Heck Are We Supposed to Do?

intuitive-eating-book_thumb.jpg

Hello! I had an appointment in Newport Beach this morning and knew I’d have an hour to kill while waiting. Since today was a rest day I wore my walking shoes and figured I’d get a little exercise exploring. Well, I scored the exploration jackpot when I checked Gmaps and realized I was down the street from Balboa Island. It’s been years since I’ve been there so I was psyched! … [Read more...]

Dessert Every Day with Arctic Zero

But I also realize I don’t want to live in a world where I can’t have a treat! So, … [Read more...]

There are 24 different options for the layers, you pick what you want. Green chilies or jalapenos – the world is your … [Read more...]

I read The China Study in 2009 (thanks to my time machine aka RunEatRepeat’s old posts, I can check things like that). “In The China Study, Dr. T. Colin Campbell details the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. The report also examines the source of nutritional confusion produced by powerful lobbies, government entities, and opportunistic … [Read more...]

Hello! Happy Sunday!! How was your weekend? I did another run this morning because I’m digging the back to back and I’m too lazy to do a full 20 miler right now.

Scenes from Saturday

sweet-pink-wine-376x502.jpg

Before we get to Saturday, this was Friday. This morning I broke a rubberband while still half asleep getting ready to run. That woke me up real fast as it flew across the room. My hair is ridiculous. Pre-run fun. I paid for all that wine on my run today. I was not feeling it at all. Every mile I checked my watch like, “Are we there yet?!” Found this on super … [Read more...]

Happy Friday! I spent some quality time catching up with trash TV last night. I know it’s not good for you to love bad TV, but I do. There are worse things I could love It’s Friday. I’ve officially been home from vacation for a week and am finally caught up on life, liberty and the pursuit of my inbox. Whew. This morning I did a short run and some stretching.

Hello and Happy Wednesday! I’ve been sportin' a Fitbit since November. First, I tried the Fitbit Flex for a non-blog project. Then, the FitBit company sent me the Fitbit Force – their top of the line model. Fancy. I am a big fan of walking to lose weight so I LOVE activity counters like this. But, this is more than a pedometer – it also gives you updates on How Many … [Read more...]

Cauliflower Pizza Crust Strikes Again

Hello! Last night I made Cauliflower Pizza Crust but subbed nutritional yeast for the cheese. It came out more ‘eggy’ than I remembered but I love eggs so it was good to me! Note: Carrot sticks are to French Fries as Cauliflower Pizza is to REAL Pizza. For those of you who skipped SAT prep: it’s not going to fool you into believing it’s real pizzeria pizza. But, I like … [Read more...]
