Good morning and happy Friday! This week flew by, didn’t it?

Guys, I love my new schedule! 😀 Before work this morning, I had time to exercise, bake, do laundry, blog, and have a conference call. It’s so nice to not feel rushed all of the time!


I hit the gym bright and early for a strength training + cardio workout.


  • Dumbbell Squats: 50 lbs, 20 reps, 3 sets
  • Alternating Dumbbell Lunges: 40 lbs, 30 reps, 3 sets
  • Plié Squats: 40 lbs, 20 reps, 3 sets
  • Leg Press (machine): 110 lbs, 20 reps, 3 sets
  • Stationary Dumbbell Lunges: 50 lbs, 15 reps, 3 sets

It takes me about 30 minutes to do 3 sets of 5 exercises for my strength training workouts. It’s just the right amount of time for me– long enough to get a good workout, but I don’t have to spend the whole day at the gym.


  • 30-minute interval mix from MotionTraxx: “Drop a Jeans Size Workout ”˜09 – Interval #3.” I love these interval workouts! Usually, I just space-out on the elliptical while reading a magazine, but these really push me to take it to the next level. I’m usually a sweaty mess by the end! And they’re a good substitute until I can run again!

If you’re looking for additional workout ideas, check out the ‘workout tag‘ on the lower right hand side of my blog. My most recent workouts are listed there. You can find some of my favorite workouts under the ‘Fitness‘ page, but I haven’t updated it in months. I promise I will soon!

DSC_0013This bread is soft and sweet with a little kick of pomegranate. It would be perfect as a dessert or even served along side a fruit salad for a healthy breakfast. I ate mine with a smear of Olivio this morning. Holy yum!
Nutritional Info (thanks, Laurie!): 1 piece (1/12 of loaf)

Gordon’s Fine Wine & Liquors

Remember went I went to the VinoVoyage and then the Backsberg Wine Tasting event, both put on by Gordon’s Fine Wine and Liquors? Well, the folks at Gordon’s have asked me to help them with their social media. Cool! :mrgreen:

Happy Birthday, Internet

Leonard-Kleinrock-and-IMP1Did you know that yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the internet? At 10:30 pm, on October 29, 1969, the internet was “born.”

My nerdy husband is a huge fan of NPR, so he listened to a special internet anniversary segment and told me all about it last night. If you want to read more, here’s some info from Wikipedia about the history of the internet.

Question of the Day

Do you remember your first encountered with the internet? What year was it?
