By the time 12:00 rolled around, I was more than ready for some lunch. I did have a small snack of Manna Bread mid-morning, but it didn’t tide my appetite over very long. I guess that’s what 1-1/2 hours of mowing the lawn will do to ya! (That’s right Jay, it’s ALL DONE!) Whew, what […]

Happy Monday! I’m quite a happy camper this morning, for a few reasons… 1.) My Workout I started my morning off with a nice, refreshing workout of some run/walk intervals. I was totally in the mood to workout, but just didn’t feel like pushing myself too hard. You know what I mean? Hey, a workout […]

by Courtney on July 25, 2010

Nothin’ beats a relaxing Sunday. Jay and I were able to take care of a few things around the house, and I was finally able to finish my book, The End of Overeating. Considering I started reading it almost 3 months ago, it was about time! It was a pretty interesting book, and I plan […]

Last night on our way home from Date Night, Jay and I got to talking a little bit about running. Our friend Joey is going to be running in a 5K race on Labor Day weekend, and asked us both if we’d want to join. Well, I immediately said “SURE!” but the hubby was quick […]

As you know, Date Nights are one of my favorite things in the whole entire world. But impromptu Date Nights – well I think they just may be 1000 times better! As I mentioned earlier today, I was having high hopes for a potential fro-yo outing at a new place in Saratoga that I’ve been […]

I love it when a Saturday rolls around when I don’t have a commitment to run to. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes those commitments can be super fun, such as last weekend’s Blogger Brunch. But for those mornings when I’m free, nothing beats a trip to the Farmers Market. Before leaving the house, I snacked […]

Chocolate + Peanut Butter  The rich, silky, sweetness of chocolate combined with the smooth, creamy, subtly sweet & nutty peanut butter: well, it’s simply, a match made in heaven. Try to tell me any other combination that is more delicious and I’ll call you crazy (unless, that is, you say chocolate + caramel – then […]
