Sack Lunch: Part II

Sack Lunch: Part II

So one day into my healthy lunch demonstration and already a monkey wrench thrown into my plans. Apparently I don’t read my meeting invites carefully enough because yesterday I had a lunch meeting that include food. Generally my advice is to hold out but this was a looooong meeting and since we were ordering Greek, … Continue reading

Sack Lunch: Part I

Sack Lunch: Part I

Last week I wrote a post about avoiding the dreaded weight gain that often happens to those who’ve been in the corporate world too long. I’m surprised by how many love handles and pot bellies I see when I look around my office and, frankly, it scares me. I spent years working to get the … Continue reading

Runner’s High

After having moved my run from Saturday to Sunday for the last two weeks, it feels nice to wake up this Sunday morning and not have to prepare for a long run.

I eat a fair amount of popcorn but that popcorn comes from my air popper, dosed only in coconut oil and salt. I’ve seen what goes into that machine … Continue reading

Sunday Runday

While I’m always a little “off” on the days where I skip a work out, the next day I wake up filled with motivation. As was the case today. My eyes flew open at 8:30 and I was stocked to get the morning rolling so I could head out for my run! But first things … Continue reading

Weekend

This weekend started out like they all should. That, my friends, is a Heart of Darkness. Will and I headed out last night and had a few drinks before getting dinner. His and Hers. While we definitely have similar tastes, Will usually opts for a lighter beer than me. They were both good but mine … Continue reading
