TGIF

TGIF

Ahhhh….Friday morning. Friday mornings sparkle more than other mornings, don’t they? I’ve loved Fridays ever since the almost perfect, original TGIF line-up of Perfect Strangers, Full House, Mr. Belvedere & Just the 10 of Us came into my life. Like for forever. So it is appropriate that my weekly Weight Watcher’s meeting falls on Fridays. I look forward … Continue reading

Skinny Songs

Skinny Songs

Listen, I’m not willing to say that I ENJOY working out, but I do have fantasies where I enjoy it. In those fantasies I’m running through Elysian Park with my pup, Ruby; I’ve developed that runner’s line on the sides of my thighs which you can see because I’m wearing super cute running shorts; and … Continue reading

Living in the Grey

Living in the Grey

Living in the grey. Taking a risk. Letting go of perfectionism. Balance. These are the things I find myself constantly challenged by. But I don’t mean challenged in a bad way. Though challenging myself can be very, well, challenging, I have learned that the best stuff comes from a challenge. Being challenged can be scary. … Continue reading

Trader Joe’s Gets Skinny

Trader Joe’s Gets Skinny

Normally I’m not impressed with anyone else’s knowledge of WW PointsPlus values when it comes to Trader Joe’s. As I discussed yesterday, I have spent hours at TJ’s entering foods into my WW app. But I found something impressive and far be it from me to keep it to myself. The Slender Kitchen recently posted … Continue reading

Grocery Store Karaoke

Grocery Store Karaoke

It’s Monday, party people. I had quite a weekend. A proposal (congrats Susie & Ryan!), a goodbye, an epic dinner complete with nephew kicking my hand from inside of soon-to-be Mom’s belly in response to epic dessert, and a reunion with old friends where I ended my weekend at a Mexican restaurant holding the newest adorable addition … Continue reading

Saying Goodbye

Saying Goodbye

Tomorrow my dear friend, Esther, packs a car and drives across the country to move to New York. So today is the day we say goodbye.  Truth be told “goodbye” means nothing in our techno-intraweb-face-a-gram world. But it’s still hard. So today, let’s talk about goodbyes. Goodbyes are hard. They imply finality. Goodbyes mean change, … Continue reading

Losing it Live

Losing it Live

A short post today because I’m going to send you somewhere else. Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending some time with my Weight Watcher’s Leader, Lynn Kaufman. Lynn does a web radio show called “Losing it Live” and you can watch or listen to the broadcast here. We talk about everything – how I … Continue reading

History Repeats Itself?

History Repeats Itself?

Oops.  I have an open bag of Hershey’s Kisses in my house again. The last time this happened the bag lasted 2 days. And it wasn’t some sort of tiny bag of Kisses that teenagers buy after school at 7/11. It was a purchased-at-the-grocery-store-because-I’m-a-grown-up sized bag. This time I had a coupon. My grocery store now … Continue reading

Do I really want to be Camryn Manheim?

Do I really want to be Camryn Manheim?

Happy Father’s Day!  Inspired by Casey Wilson‘s article about her own father in last week’s Entertainment Weekly, I have decided to dedicate today’s post to my dad in honor of Father’s Day. Totally belatedly, I know. But better late than never, right? My father, like Casey Wilson‘s father did when she was on SNL, has … Continue reading

Food, Glorious Food

Food, Glorious Food

Baseball. America’s pastime. The perfect summer activity. Long hours under the sun with an ice-cold beverage in hand spent simply waiting for something to happen. Well this weekend, I had the pleasure of attending not one, but two baseball games. Lucky me. For me, the danger of making the trek to the ballpark is less about the food … Continue reading
