January 2013


Some pets are special. My dog, Chloe? She is *extra* special. The following video here (I’m having trouble embedding today… what’s goin’ on, YouTube?) exhibits how Chloe walks across my wood floors. She is terrified of specific spots, namely, the middle of the entrance to my living room. *Also, don’t be alarmed by the seemingly […]


You know, I always feel guilty diminishing my fitness blog to this (which lately hasn’t revolved around fitness as much anyway due to my lack of time to write). However, I can’t not comment. This season of The Bachelor is ridiculous. Maybe it’s because I’m so invested in Sean and his well-being, but I truly […]


Gaining Cool Points

If you’ve been an LOB reader for a while, you’re well aware I’m late on the 24 train. I may have been late to fall in love with the television show, but it didn’t make me fall any less hard. I quickly became 24 obsessed. My dad has a “Jack Bauer for President” shirt. I […]


Ever since the recent start of fitmixer boot camp #3, I’ve been sore. Every day. Now, some of this may be due to the fact that I was doing next to nothing while recovering from my most recent surgery. Even though I was running, I feel like I’m starting from square one again with many […]


My View

…as I complete my fitmixer boot camp workout of the day. The lack of enthusiasm on this girl’s part is overwhelming, but I’m pretty excited. YAY for snowy half days and early dismissal from school! It’s a happy Friday over here, even on tabata day. 😉

Why hanging backstage can be even more fun than being onstage: Elvis heats up my soup for me. And maybe I’m responsible for Elvis’ eyebrows. Why I’m effing sore getting my muscle back: Why I’m proud of myself: Don’t gasp at me. I have never liked the taste of water. Usually, I’m downing Powerade Zero […]

Guys, guess what? It’s cold out. Know how I know? From the 67 people posting about it on my news feed. Right? I’m so enlightened. Thank God for Facebook. Anyway, is it just me, or does this cold weather + dry heat = itchy, itchy skin? Seriously. I have bruises on my legs from trying […]


Three for Thursday

1. I have been thoroughly enjoying my new Love Grown Foods Hot Oats every morning. I only have the peach flavor left to try, but so far, the Blueberry Banana Walnut is a shining favorite. Deee-freakin’-licious. Obviously, the other flavors (Strawberry Raspberry and Apple Cinnamon are the ones I also tried) are also great. It’s […]


I’m kind of in a transition period, and these words (via Pinterest) felt good to me. I’m hoping they have the same effect on you guys. I’m also in tech week for Picasso at the Lapin Agile, so life is a teeensy bit crazy. Bear with me as I navigate my way through this week. […]


New Plans for 2013

January 11, 2013 · 31 comments

The beginning of a new year is always a harbinger of people making new habits, new goals, and new plans. I’ve touched on mine before, but I don’t think I’ve specifically mentioned things I’d like to try in the new year. I noted that I’d like to step out of my comfort zone this year. […]
