I have a lot of catching up to do blog wise. The past week was a whirlwind — Nashville for three days then the intense 48 hours leading up to the Quarter Marathon. As stressful as it was to be travelling for lawyer work the week of the race, the trip to Nashville ended up …

With all of the dietary changes (no gluten, no dairy, more vegetables, no straving myself) I have been asked about what I actually do eat.  Here’s my pictorial food diary for Tuesday February 6, 2014.

Yesterday a friend of mine posted “[s]o excited for the month of February. It’s like a clean slate” on her Face Book wall.  The statement really hit me.  For the first time in while I’m not looking forward to starting over in a new month, rather I’m looking to build on what has been a …
