Rise and shine! It’s running time! Workout I got my run on with Kerrie at Pond Meadow Park this morning. We met early to beat the heat and did a quickie run around the park. We’re both planning to go to CrossFit tonight, so we kept our workout short and sweet with a 20-minute run. I didn’t bring my watch this morning, so I’m not sure how far we went, but I kept trying to figure…

Hi, friends! How are you? I hope Tuesday is treating you well! Breakfast This morning’s breakfast was the usual (French Toast Breakfast Scramble), but I added fresh raspberries and almond butter (x 2) this time. I know, I’m totally unpredictable. Workout After breakfast, I took Murphy to the dog park. I planned to run 5 miles today, but my quads are smoked from yesterday’s WOD, so I switched it up with a 2-mile run/walk with…

Good morning! Happy Monday! Are you partaking in 24 Days of Togetherness? If so and you’re on Instagram and/or Twitter, feel free to use the hashtag #24daysoftogetherness. It’ll be fun to follow along and see what everyone else is doing to celebrate the holidays and togetherness. On the agenda for today: Buy each other a small gift. I have a couple of ideas for Mal””D&D gift card, a bag of pistachios (one of his favorite…

Good morning! Happy Friday! It’s an exciting day for Mr. Murphy! He’s scheduled for a pug photo shoot later this afternoon, so, of course, he’s super-duper excited, especially since it includes a ride in the car to the (Fenway) park, but he has no idea what to wear for it. It’s his first professional photo shoot. Murphy is generally a fan of the “naked” look, but the photographer asked us to bring a few collar/harness options….

On my travels home from Oregon the other day, I bought a copy of O, The Oprah Magazine. (The “How to Transform Your”¦ Stress Level” headline caught my attention!) On one of the first pages of the magazine was a piece where five of the issue’s contributors (including Ted Allen – remember when I met him?) were asked a series of questions about the power of transformation. I enjoyed reading the various questions and responses,…

I love a good muffin, so when I thought about what I would eat for breakfast and snack on during my upcoming travels, this tasty treat immediately popped into my head. But, I didn’t want to make any old muffin. (You know the ones that leave you hungry just a couple of hours later, right?) I wanted to make a muffin with some serious staying power, so I incorporated some of my favorite protein- and…

Hi, friends! Happy Tuesday! The other day, I stumbled upon this cool infographic created by some CrossFit number crunchers. It shows the average stats of the men and women who placed in the top 10 in the 2012 CrossFit Open. Check it out! Just for fun, here’s how I compare: Snatch: 80 lbs. Clean and Jerk: 95 lbs Deadlift: 200 lbs Back Squat: 155 lbs. Haha! I’m not even close to the average! It just…

Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day! Is it H-O-T where you are today? It’s a scorcher here in Boston. We’re at 92 degrees! Yowsahs. Super hot weather always makes me want to boozeface… like on a boat out in the middle of the ocean. Anyone else? Ok, moving on… Breakfast I woke up craving nut butter (like I almost always do), so I added almond butter, sliced banana, and chia seeds to a whole wheat wrap…

You know how I always say the bad runs make you appreciate the good ones? It seems like I say that kind of a lot on CNC, so I was actually starting to wonder when I’d finally have a good run. Well, today was the day! Workout This morning, I ran eight glorious miles and felt amazing the entire time. I never felt winded, my legs never got tired, and I never felt crappy (at…

Good morning! Happy Monday! It’s Mal last day of school today, so summer begins for us at 2:05 PM when the last bell of the year rings. I know the official first day of summer is Wednesday, but summer starts for me as soon as Mal is out of school. I love having him around during the day; we have a lot of fun together. With summer finally here, I decided to create a Summer…

Hello, hello! Murphy and I just got back from a lovely extra long afternoon walk. It’s his birthday after all, and I love spoiling him! Workout Before our walk, I headed out for a run. The beautiful weather inspired me to get moving. I mean, it isn’t always this gorgeous in Boston, so I need to take advantage while I can! I guess I was really in the mood to run because I busted out some speedy…

Exciting news! In a couple of weeks, I’m hosting my first ever Twitter party with Stonyfield to help them drum up some buzz for their new Oikos frozen yogurt flavors: Peach Mango and Super Fruits. Like all Stonyfield products, the Frozen Oikos are made from organic ingredients produced without the use of toxic, persistent pesticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics and synthetic growth hormones. Additionally, these frozen yogurts are packed with probiotics, which I am all about…

Good morning! I just dropped off Murphy at the vet for his annual check-up, which includes a full examination and a couple of vaccinations, so he’ll spend most of the day there (it was sad coming home to a pug-less house), and Mal will pick him up on his way home from school this afternoon. On the drive home from the vet, the “check engine light” turned on in my car. I’ve owned my car for nearly…

Noun 1. snacker – someone who eats lightly or eats snacks between meals Confession: I don’t show all of the snacks I eat on Carrots ”˜N’ Cake. I try to photograph most of what goes into my mouth, but it’s not always possible. Sometimes my camera isn’t handy, sometimes I’m enjoying the moment and don’t want to ruin it with a photo, and sometimes I’m just lazy. So, what you see on CNC isn’t always…

Good morning! Happy Monday, friends! If you’re just catching up, here are some posts from the weekend: Reebok Blogger Event: Part Two Reebok Blogger Event: Part One CNC Meal Plan: Week of May 13 Home Sweet Home Blog Dogs #4 And You Thought I Didn’t Listen Breakfast I bought a new jar of almond butter over the weekend, so, not surprisingly, I woke up with a serious craving for it. I swear, anytime almond butter…
