It’s not what you think

Lisa

I was walking my dog Lisa in the neighborhood and I said hello to a woman who was walking toward us. She just ignored me and looked down. I thought she was so rude! Everyone in my neighborhood is so friendly, we always greet each other as we pass. At the very least with a…

Three new things

First of all dairy is not my friend. Lately I have been a little bit lax about my dairy intake. I’ve forgotten to order my salads without dairy on a number of occasions, my sister even called me out on Facebook. Thanks for looking out for me girl. In my defense the salad descriptions made…

Foam rolling at Airrosti

Foam rolling

I was recently reminded of the importance of foam rolling. Again. Christine, my Team In Training coach, told me and my fellow teammates to foam roll to prevent injury while training for the Cap Tex Tri last year.  When I complained of knee pain she reminded me again. I have been a slacker with my…

Relaxing by the water

Go Orange to Help End Hunger

My blog is going orange for the month of September and it’s for a great cause. I am participating in the Moms Fighting Hunger initiative headed by Stacy Teet of Kids Stuff World. Eating healthy is a very important topic for me. It breaks my heart when I see a child drinking soda or eating…

I’m Convinced

I’m totally copying my Instagram friend Kalli, who got this idea from Kelly. I enjoyed reading the things they were convinced of so much, I had to make my own list. I’m convinced that: my current dog Lisa loves labs and hates cats because my previous dog Zeke was a lab who hated cats. every…
