Hello my wonderful ladies and gentlemen.
It’s been a while, but my life has been in complete upheaval, and worst of all: I am still without a car.
So, here’s the down low: still working out real hard, consuming approximately 9 grapefruits a week, and burying myself beneath work and coffee and all of the tissues necessary to mend my broken heart.
Thank you all for your patience, and for all of the private messages wishing me well and to feel better soon. I love you all.
Be back as soon as I can see straight.
Hey everyone. Sorry for my temporary hiatus. Work is getting CRAZY as we prepare for the ever impending 4th business quarter. Rich people are feeling generous, so I’m sorting through piles and piles of grants and donations and trying to figure out who can give them and who can receive them. Trust me, I’m tearing my hair out. But that has not stopped me from keeping in shape! I’ve been doing at least 45 minutes each night at the gym, plus eating pretty healthy (lots of fruit and veggies!). Downside? My job involves a lot of sitting, plus the humidity and my period are making me bloat like crazy, so I’ve despite the clean eating and exercise, I feel pretty blah. Any tips on how to make this not-so-great feeling go away?
It’s been two extremely hectic days filled with going in early and staying late at the office, sitting in rush hour for hours, eating well, catching up with friends, and LOTS of hot weather as the East Coast is being hit with a heat wave. It’s safe to say that I am exhausted, but I can’t stop now! Tomorrow’s only Thursday!
Anyways, because I’ve been putting in long hours at work and on the road, I haven’t been getting much sleep, maybe averaging 6 hours per night versus the former 9 I got before this business quarter started getting busy. It’s been rough and as a result my workouts, while happening, haven’t been as intense, so I’ve had to really focus on eating clean and substantial, which is a nice change:
I I have been making a conscious effort to drink more water, though, carrying a water-bottle around with me everywhere I go, and so far so good. I’m peeing like a racehorse and running without cramps, which are all good signs in my book. Additionally, I had my first green tea lemonade from Starbucks, and I have to say: I wasn’t that impressed. Everybody has raved about it, but I guess it just wasn’t my thing.
As a faithful Caramel Machiatto drinker, do you guys and gals have any suggestions for what is good at Starbucks?
Hi all! It’s been a rainy Sunday here on the East Coast, but that hasn’t stopped me from eating some delicious, healthy meals today. I’ve been kind of lax on the exercise for this weekend, as my plans keep changing constantly, making it hard to fit in a workout, but tomorrow I am back on track! I did manage to go for a lengthy walk this morning with my Mom and sister, so I guess I got a little bit of exercise, but not nearly enough to keep me satisfied.

This week will be a crazy one since I’ll be going back to work after a lovely 2 weeks off, but the bills must be paid so it has to be done. Cheers, guys and gals, to a new week! Let it be the best one yet :)
So today was NOT my best day in terms of food. It wasn’t that I ate a lot of bad things, it’s just I ate a lot of one bad thing, and that thing is chips and dip. Regardless of the fact that I did an hour workout, I still feel really gross. Not that I didn’t enjoy the chips and dip, because I did, it’s just that they weren’t as satisfying as they should’ve been for the amount that I ate. Oh well. We all have our days, and tomorrow is a new one.
Here’s what I ate despite it:
I think it’s safe to say for the amount of them I consume, I am singlehandedly supporting the egg industry.
Enjoy this beautiful weekend!
*not combined. don’t do that.
Because my job gave me the week off so I can get a new car, I volunteered to babysit my former boss’s daughters, ages 9, 5, and 8 months.
I didn’t know the 8 month old has an ear infection and is teething, in addition to going through a clingy “Where’s my mom?!” stage.
Sometimes, we all make decisions we regret.

Let this post be a subtle reminder to always use protection. Have a beautiful night, ladies and gents!
