Welp, another summer weekend come and gone! Sorry for the brief hiatus. I was on quite the emotional roller coaster last week, given last Friday’s events at my alma mater, UC Santa Barbara. I’m really glad I made the decision to invite a few other Sacramento-area UCSB alumnae to join me at a candlelight vigil at UC … Continue reading

Shamrock’n Half Marathon Recap

Well, my first half marathon has come and gone! I have felt such a wide range of emotions throughout the past 3 months, in particular these last couple of weeks, and it’s kind of hard to put it all into words. But here’s my attempt!

Fitness Friday – on Vacation

Something I’ve never been great at is exercising on vacation. Who’s with me? (99% of everyone, I’m guessing :-P) When we come to New York on vacation to visit family, we know we’ll be eating the whole time, so, to be honest, my “healthy diet” often goes out the window…and I’m okay with that. It’s … Continue reading

Fitness Friday

Text with both hands. Use scissors. Cut food in a straight line. Play dodgeball. Run 4 miles. Hold a long ass plank. Learn to play (and win!) beer pong left handed.

What I Ate Wednesday

What I Ate Wednesday

Though I have been blogging for well over a year now, there’s one typical “healthy living blogger” blog post I’ve never done…until today! What I Ate Wednesday.

So this weekend turned out to be a pretty long one, folks… Whether that’s a good or bad thing, I’ll let you decide… I ended up taking more or less of a half day on Friday. I went in to Kaiser in the morning and learned that my dodgeball injury had resulted in a “small … Continue reading
