August 2012

Yup, you guys were right. I cut meat from my diet. As I noted yesterday, it has only been a little over a month, but I am really liking the results so far. I have more energy, which is saying a lot, considering I’m constantly low on sleep these days. My stomach has felt really, […]


The Big Diet Changeup

August 29, 2012 · 31 comments

I usually keep you guys in the know if I’m changing my diet. I tried my friend Jim White’s nutrition plan, I’ve been on the fitmixer meal plan, and lately, I’ve pretty much stuck to the “everything in moderation” plan. I have adopted my favorite attributes from both of these plans, splurged when I’ve felt […]


Are You Gaga?

August 28, 2012 · 25 comments

Look, I’m in print! Hampton Roads Wedding Planner Magazine …and, well, going off of that second little career I’m working on, I shook things up a little this weekend. …as Gaga. Let’s just pretend I actually look like Gaga for a second. I’m sure it didn’t do Alyssa‘s vision justice when I told her about […]


The Itch is Back

August 24, 2012 · 34 comments

Guess what I did a whole lot of this week? I’m slow. I know. I’d love to get my speed back up, but it felt so goshdarn good to get back out on the pavement. The itch for long runs is officially back, and I’ve completed a 10.5, an 8, and two 2 milers this […]


You may find yourself facing cloudy skies on a family beach vacation. It happens to the best of us. But if your family is anything like mine, a little rain is “nbd” with beach chairs, bathing suits, and good conversation. And skinny margs. Don’t forget the skinny margs. I promised this recipe SO. LONG. AGO. […]


To My Readers

August 17, 2012 · 41 comments

Hi. This is me introducing a word vomit blog post. Obviously, I’ve been a little busy this summer. For the month of July, my blog came last on my list of priorities. As I mentioned yesterday, I made lots of new friends by joining the theatre here, and I wanted to spend my time with […]


Anyone who has been involved in musical theatre knows that with the closing of a show comes post-show depression. I’m still working on getting over that. Clearly, that’s going really well for me. I realized recently I never actually told you guys from start to finish how I found myself back in musical theatre after […]


Why I Quit The Gym

August 15, 2012 · 35 comments

Have you noticed zero mentions of my gym, trainers, group fitness classes, and treadmill runs? That’s because there haven’t been any since March. It’s true. My account is frozen, and I haven’t stepped foot into my old gym since before I had my surgery. And I don’t miss it. To be honest, I started realizing […]


Ode to the Single Lady

August 14, 2012 · 18 comments

Special thanks to my good friend and fellow single lady Lauren for sending this to me. I just had to share, because, well, I’m pretty proud to be an imaginary board-pinning, Anthropologie-loitering single woman. High five and cheers, girls. Cue the Beyonce. You’re Sending Out Fancy Invitations, I’m Pinning Things To An Imaginary Board Aug. […]


Let’s Talk Crossfit.

August 13, 2012 · 37 comments

My friend Clare is taking over my blog today. I love her dearly, and I have a feeling you all will, too. Clare’s guest post is titled Why Alyssa Shouldn’t Be Afraid of Crossfit. [Disclaimer: I’m not afraid. I’m just a brat who is bad at trying new things all by herself] [okay, maybe I’m […]
