Yesterday was my intern, Malia’s, last day at the office, so, as I often do on special occasions, I went overboard. Way overboard.
Here’s what my kitchen looked on Tuesday night.
One intern departure = 24 ginormous cupcakes and pretty cinnamon rolls
I went into the store with intentions of making the ever-popular chocolate + applesauce cupcake couple that was such a big hit with the coworkers last time around. But then, the strawberry cake mix caught my eye, and I just couldn’t resist the idea of some pretty pink cupcakes.
BREAKING NEWS: I went to the gym! I also sweat the gym.
Last night, I went to the gym.
If that’s not a captivating subject line, I don’t know what is. A healthy living blogger going to the gym? That is certainly headline news. It’s not like most of us don’t do it every day right?
Well, for me, I felt like going to the gym last night was an accomplishment to be celebrated. Why? Because I had an arsenal of excuses that I could have used to NOT go.
- I was tired from traveling, drinking (too much in Nebraska) and getting in late on Monday night.
- I was feeling a little homesick.
- I didn’t get much downtime on on my vacation, worked late on Monday night and deserved a little “Sometimes Healthy” date with the Couch Monster.
- I needed more sleep!
Dazed and Confused
I intended to workout yesterday morning but, even though I woke up early, I just wasn’t up for the challenge. Continue reading
What up yo! Welcome to another edition of Theme Song Thursday, where I share a song that represents my day. Because in the end, if every person should have a theme song, why not have a theme song for every day?
Well, today’s theme song is a bit different from my normal choices...
Today’s song is none other than “Gin & Juice” by a legend from the days of old school rap, Snoop D-O-Double G. What? You didn’t realize this Sometimes Healthy Girl was a closet rap fan? With lyrics that make such bold statements like “Two in the morning and the party’s still jumpin’ cause my momma ‘aint home,” how could one not be moved by this song? Continue reading
Today’s theme song is a word that I have probably heard more times in my life than any other. It’s a word that my friends, family and probably blog readers would like to say to me about 10 times a day: RELAX.
Hello to all the new readers of the Sometimes Healthy Living blog! I’ve seen a lot of you since yesterday’s guest post on “I’m an Okie.” Thanks for stopping by! Sit down and stay awhile…pretty please
Happy Music = Healthy Living?
Believe it or not, I think a huge part of “healthy living” is music. As I mentioned last week, sometimes all it takes is one good tune, and this Sometimes Healthy Girl’s mood can go from zero to hero in 60 seconds. That doesn’t mean that someone who doesn’t listen to music isn’t healthy. It also doesn’t mean that in order to be healthy, one should walk around all day humming the theme song from Barney. It just means that music can take us all to a “happy place” and happy = healthy.
Additionally, a couple weeks ago, I posted about Zooey Deschanel’s statement in SELF magazine that everyone needs a life theme song. I thoroughly enjoyed the comments from that post about your life theme songs, as well as comments from last week’s post. So that’s why, moving forward I’m instituting a Thursday Theme Song day, where I share a song that either describes my day OR puts me in a good mood. Continue reading
