So, yesterday I had a small slip-up in the challenge. My friend Elisa and I spent all day yesterday packing up the rest of my stuff from the farmhouse and moving it to Newtown. I drove a U-haul 80 miles yesterday, ahh!! I put on my big girl pants and gassed the 13-foot truck down … More Ice Cream for Breakfast?!
I’m currently 3 days into the challenge and I must say, so far so good! It’s amazing how just 3 days of better eating and exercise can totally change my mindset. When I was eating crap and not working out I felt like a waste and I wasn’t happy. Now that I’m back on track … More Israel Challenge Beginnings
Blizzard Alert! (Sorry for the pic taken through the screen!) We are officially snowed in! It’s been snowing since noon yesterday, and when I woke up at 7 this morning it was still goin’. We haven’t gotten any snow yet this year in CT, so this first dumping is definitely pretty epic! We got well … More Holy Snow
Oh my goodness, it’s party central here at home. I’ve gone to 5 Christmas parties in the past 2 days! The parties have all been fun and I love seeing my friends from home, but I am definitely eating and drinking wayyyy too much. I’ll need a Christmas detox after this weekend. Major. This year … More Christmas Presents Galore!
What a crazy couple of awesome days it’s been! My family has been planning this trip for the last few months and Puerto Rico was pretty darn fabulous. We stayed at the Ritz-Carlton in San Juan (I am infinitely grateful to my parents for the wonderfulness of the hotel), which was right on the ocean … More Bienvenido a Puerto Rico!
Hi all! Since I moved back home I’ve been craving one thing and one thing only. Breakfast Cookie!!! (a la Gina, of course) I finally went out to the supermarket and bought oats today, which made this breakfast beauty a delicious possibility. Into this mix went 1/3 cup oats, 1 small banana, 1 scoop soy … More Catch Up Day!
Alright, I know I’ve been super secretive and weird about the whole Israel thing, but now I’ll give a bit of further information about my upcoming adventure 🙂 Sooo a little over 3 years ago (the summer after my freshman year) I got my first taste of Israel through the Taglit-Birthright program. This program gives … More Shalom Tel Aviv!
Sorry, but after a crazy day full of activities, I’m too pooped for a full post right now. Run down of today’s activities: -Woke at 8:00. -Walked from the west village to east 42nd street in order to get to the Israeli Consulate. (a bit chilly out in nyc today!) ps. If you haven’t already … More Worst Blogger Ever.
To start today off right both Evan and I took a little trip to the world’s most fantastic diner (yes, I mean it.) The Wooden Spoon, located in east bumble-nowhere Ashford, CT has honestly changed my diner experience for the better. If you ever get the chance to go, try their homemade cornbread–holy moley delish. … More Hello Big Apple!
So Friday and Saturday morning I was in a bit of a slump. I really don’t have much to complain about because my life is pretty awesome, but I just felt kind of tired. I wasn’t sleepy tired so much as just physically tired, my arms and legs felt like lead and my brain was … More Slump No More!
