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.
I was obviously out enjoying this gorgeous weather!
And I’m back! So sorry for the brief lack of posts. The weather was absolutely gorgeous here in NYC this weekend, so as you can imagine, I just had to take advantage…
Well, that’s what I’d like you to think, anyway. And in fact, if the whole premise of this blog wasn’t about “keepin’ it real,” I might even let you assume that.
But, The Sometimes Healthy Living Blog is about sharing the good AND the bad, so here goes:
I spent the better part of the weekend indoors hiding from the beautiful weather, friends and most importantly, a mounting stack of work and blog work. To avoid being “knee deep” in emails and projects, I found myself elbow deep in a box of Cinnamon Cheerios, a bag of pretzels and the first season of Felicity (I’ve seen this season at least 10 times – what can I say? I just love that damn show). Continue reading
Who wouldn't want to run by this?
It was the perfect day for a run here in NYC.
Clear skies, hot temps (but not too hot), and low humidity. The kind of day where it feels like the entire city is out running, biking, walking around, shopping or day drinking. Yet, still, around 10:30, I found myself indoors performing my typical pre-run procrastination routine: SoapNet’s Breakfast in Bed (One Tree Hill and 90201 marathon), bowl(s) of cereal and some major cuddle time with the couch monster.
As enjoyable as it was, I felt a bit guilty wasting even a portion of such beautiful weather on the couch. Thankfully, my best friend, Michelle, called and asked me to meet her down on the Lower East Side track for a run and more importantly, some catch-up time. Michelle was in Europe for 10 days recently, so we had a lot to chat about. Continue reading
It’s a bit of a dreary Sunday here in NYC, which means I don’t feel guilty about staying indoors this morning to catch up on blogs, reality television and even a little bit of sleep. In fact, I’d say this rest is well-deserved, considering I spent Saturday morning in Central Park running a relatively solid 10K that, up until the same morning at 6 am, I wasn’t sure I’d be running. Despite humidity and a tbd foot injury (tbd because I still haven’t gone to the doctor), I ran the race to the best of my ability and accomplished what I wanted to do in my first race since the National Marathon: Have a lil’ bit of good old-fashioned fun. So let’s rewind a little bit to see how I got my little broken Sometimes Healthy body to the starting line: Continue reading
