Oh Twitter, how you love to distract me from my work.
Of course, I think this Monday most of us New Yorkers were either in a bit of a “Hurricane Irene” fog or unable to make it into the office and therefore trapped in our respective homes.
(Sidenote: I am in a chocolate/wine fog from sitting on the couch all weekend with Michelle, making our way through our Hurricane Survival Pack and watching every chick flick known to man. This morning in spin class, my legs felt like tin…then the instructor played a Selena Gomez song at the top of a hill…It was a rough class, to say the least, but I persevered.)
Therefore, I willfully allowed a few tweets to distract me during work today, figuring that I was in a similar boat with those that were still transfixed by all of this non-stop Irene coverage (On a serious note, while I’m very happy NYC made it through unscathed, I’m definitely thinking about those that were affected and hoping for the best for all).
When Women’s Health tweeted the following, I just HAD to click on it.
Irene is coming...and the NYC bars are capitalizing.
I had a really great post planned about how much my little foot injury has caused me to miss running and appreciate its benefits, but then something a bit more topical (or should I say “tropical”) happened.
Hurricane Irene is pretty much all anyone can talk about here in NYC. And I’m hopping on the bandwagon.
Since I live not too far from one of Mayor Bloomberg’s evacuation zones, I decided to camp out at Michelle’s for the weekend. I have my doubts as to whether or not the hurricane will affect my living area, but, truthfully, let’s be honest, I’m not really “equipped” to handle a natural disaster by my Sometimes Healthy Self.

Chia Seeds = Magic. Like Fairy Dust.
Have I mentioned how much I L-U-V my coworkers?
Well, last night was our annual office summer party, and it reminded me of exactly why I love these unique little souls. I knew from the minute I walked into the joint that it fit like a glove, and the place hasn’t let me down ever since.
I’m certainly not wise enough to dispense career advice, but since I’m in Stage 4 of the Sometimes Healthy Hangover post-office Summer Party, I’m going to throw caution to the wind and do it anyway: Finding the right place to work is JUST as important as finding the right kind of job for you.
Yes, it’s important to love what you do, but remember, my friends, you will be spending a majority of your day with your coworkers, so you might as well like them. Better yet, you could be like me and think your coworkers are the sh***. Yes, I actually enjoy coming into the office every single day, because even if I’m not excited about a certain project, I know I’ll always be thoroughly entertained and that I have quality people to complain to about said boring project.
So, I bet you’re a bit curious as to how this lovefest post will result in me sharing a recipe with you about Carrot Apple Chi Chi Chi Chia Muffins. Well, guess you’ll just have to keep reading…
Steak Cheesesteak, Veggie Cheesesteak? Read on to find out
Over the weekend, at the Healthy Living Summit, I met more amazing and accomplished people than I ever thought was possible to fit in a room, tweeted more than I’ve ever tweeted in my entire life and discovered a new kind of bread to obsess about…
Oh and I learned that the Philly Cheesesteak tastes just as good without the steak…
I’d love to recap the entire conference for you, but per usual, I’m a bit late to the game, and I imagine you’ve probably read it all a few times by now. So instead, let’s talk about some of the lessons I learned at Healthy Living Summit 2011: Continue reading
Look who's cookin' good lookin
The week I was in Nebraska, I missed both the Bachelorette and MTV’s latest addictive train-wreck, The Challenge. In fact, I turned on the television once in 8 days as entertainment while I was doing situps. What does that mean? It means I was extremely busy back in the Big-O.
I know what you’re thinking: It’s Nebraska, how much could you possible have to do?
Well first off, shame on you for being so judgmental dear old Nebraska. Omaha is a very happening place. You should go there for vacation. Let me know when you plan the trip, and I’ll make some recommendations…
And secondly, between family, friends and reunion preparations, I had plenty to keep me busy…including a Sometimes Healthy Spaghetti Squash Faux Lasagna Family Dinner.
