It was recently brought to my attention that I need to eat more protein. I don’t post what I eat on a daily basis here on the Sometimes Healthy Living blog for many reasons:
- I can’t keep track of my meals myself!
- My food is never photogenic (unless I try really hard).
- Many times, unless it’s a Wacky Food Combo, my meals are boring.
During one of our recent marathon catch-up phone sessions, my best friend, Becca, who is never wrong about anything, informed me that I’m not incorporating enough protein in my daily meals. Continue reading
WINNER WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER!
Tonight, I was in the mood for something deep fried and delicious, so I broke out my deep fryer, threw in some chicken and had myself “a little bit of chicken fried…“
Confession: Sometimes I hesitate to post my wacky recipes because I worry that I’ll “alienate” my readers. After all, let’s be honest, some of them are are a bit “wacky” to say the least. Well, the latest batch of Wacky Food Combos might just take the cake…or shall I say, the pie.
No judgments, please. This is a “safe space.” I hope I don’t scare any of you away with these crazy combos. They are not for everyone – Sometimes Healthy is an acquired taste. So please, if you don’t like them, can we still be friends? There is so much more to this Sometimes Healthy Girl than unique food creations
Pie Fillings/Canned Fruit a Hidden Secret Weapon
Heaven in a can - do not fear the canned food. It was invented for those of us who are bad at baking or don't have time to do it.
When you’re a little bit dangerous in the kitchen, any item that eliminates a step in the cooking or baking process is a welcome treat. The problem with many pie fillings and canned fruit is that they are too sugary? Thus, I use the low sugar versions.
If you are against Splenda-fied deserts, stop here, go back to my homepage and read about my Lazy Girl’s Workout Plan or why every should have a theme song. I totally respect the whole all-natural thing – it’s just not for this Sometimes Healthy Girl. However, if you’re not afraid of a little fake sugar, let’s have some fun with pie filling!

So 10 hours of sleep is your secret? I've "got milk" and sleep - watch out Heidi Klum!
Good afternoon, my friends! Hope you’re enjoying your weekend! Do I sound a bit chipper to you?
You may remember a while back I did a post about the average hours celebrities sleep, based on an article from People. In short, Ryan Reynolds doesn’t sleep and Heidi Klum sleeps apparently an average of 10 hours a night. Something tells me Ms. Klum is exaggerating, but that is not the point of this post…
Guess what?! Last night I slept as much as Heidi Klum!
That’s right, I went to bed at 8:00! Well, okay, I watched Felicity (most underrated show ever) in bed for 1 hour and then fell asleep at 9:00. I’m anticipating a busy July at work, so I’m trying to fit in extra sleep whenever I can. This Sometimes Healthy Girl may be living in the city that never sleeps, but that doesn’t mean she can’t sneak in a few extra z’s every now and then.
A New Sometimes Healthy Girl
This morning, I woke up bright and early at 7 am feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to run! Sometimes I feel like the entire second half of my week is spent in a fog of tiredness, so it was a pleasant change to have a bit of energy this beautiful Saturday morning. Continue reading
In the great words of Bruno Mars, last night, “I didn’t feel like doing anythiiing. I just want(ed) to lay in my bed.”
Now don’t go getting all worried on me. There was no sadness, deep introspective thinking about the direction of my life or lack of motivation to go to the gym. I was just straight tired from
staying up late to watch the Voice working sooo hard. Yet, despite running on only 3 Dunkin Donuts coffees and 5 hours of sleep, I still wanted to work out.
Thus, I found myself in a bit of a conundrum – I WANTED to workout but lacked the ENERGY to complete a quality workout.
