As I was shopping for Whole30 compliant food at our local grocery store, which basically means buying an entire shopping cart of vegetables that I don’t really want to eat, my mind drifted toward earlier in the day when I was presented with free sushi and wraps. When offered by one of my co-workers, I […]
I want to wish everyone a great new year and happy holiday season. The past few weeks were a ton of fun, full of friends family, and exciting changes on the horizon. Also, THE BILLS MADE THE PLAYOFFS. Who could have asked for a better ending to an otherwise bizarre year.
I think it’s clear […]
Exciting news! We jumped on the bandwagon and did the Whole30! Aaaand we didn’t hate it . . . at least not the entire time. What started as a way for Jon and I to fit better into a kilt and a bridesmaid dress, respectively, turned into a pretty habit-changing experience.
I borrowed the Whole30 book […]
Anyone who has tried to eat healthily knows how hard it is to stay on track when going out, celebrating holidays or special events, and even just trying to be social at work. This past week, I faced all of those things. AND I DID NOT GIVE IN! Just to toot my own horn, I […]
We went grocery shopping last week with the intention of making zoodles at some point. We have yet to make said zoodles, and the zucchini we got is heading toward inedible but not there yet! Because of this, we decided to make zucchini muffins at midnight!
Knowing that we run a blog focused on healthy living, I looked […]
Since we’ve been together, Jon and I have been at least somewhat conscious of our overall impact on the planet. We try to do our part when it comes to recycling—in fact, Tonawanda just upgraded our little recycling bins to big, brand-spanking-new totes last week, and we are pretty excited to cram ours full each […]
I like ice cream, as most people I assume do. It doesn’t like me, or at least not the lactose in its delicious, creamy molecules. I’ve gotten better at saying no, or find alternatives. And no, sorbet is not an alternative.
Ellie and I recently celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary (woo!) with a lovely Italian dinner […]

Jon and I have been menu planning for a few weeks now, and it’s been helping us stay on track like nobody’s business. We’ve packed lunches very consistently, eaten out less, and spent more time together in the kitchen. And we’re learning all the […]
This is the second post of my daily recap of all 50 runs on the way to the 2017 Boilermaker. It is going to be a short post format with just notes that we can review. Enjoy!
With Ellie busy doing a Reform Fitness class tonight, this was my first solo run of the training block. Technically it […]
The title is not fake news. He really said it.
I’ve been struggling with personal training recently. I have seen decent gains on my upper-body strength, but my weight-loss and discipline have been very much lacking. I just wasn’t feeling it. At the start of March, we moved to three days a week, which was supposed to get […]
