“Excuse Girl” strikes again! [insert eye roll emoji] On my way home from Stowe on Tuesday afternoon, I told Mal something along the lines of “I wish I could eat like that all the time” with regard to the meals that we enjoyed at Stowe Mountain Lodge. The food was truly amazing—fresh (often local), interesting (so many incredible flavor combinations), and healthy (not oversized or loaded with oil and salt). Basically, the resort made it easy to eat…

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I just wanted to share a quick recap with some “timestamps” from ours. Here we go! SATURDAY 9:53 AM: Partner workout at Salt Shack CrossFit complete! It was a good one for sure. My partner and I split up the reps evenly. And, whoa, my shoulders are sore from the rope climbs. I haven’t done them in awhile! 10:20 AM: Donut date with my favorite…

Last Saturday night, Mal and I started planning our trip to Ireland in April. The deal we booked through the Aer Lingus Vacation Store is partly planned for us with a few details that we need to take care of on our own. The package includes three nights at hotels in Dublin and Galway, which are already reserved for us. For the remaining three nights, we are responsible for booking overnight stays at our choice of independently-owned…

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…

Treadmill [n.]: A torture device perfected in the 20th century, designed to destroy one’s mind through sensory deprivation and monotony. Mark Remy, runnersworld.com executive editor, in The Runner’s Rule Book Ok, I understand why the treadmill gets a bad rap. It can be pretty boring, but I enjoy it, especially in the winter and for interval workouts. If a treadmill would fit in our basement (sadly, the ceilings are too low), I’d own one and…

Hi, guys! Look what arrived in the mail this afternoon! My NASM Certified Personal Trainer certificate! Woohoo! I figured receiving my certificate in the mail today was a sign that I should probably reply to your questions about NASM, so here’s a little Q & A. I think I got all of them, but if I missed any, please let me know! How come you picked NASM over other personal trainer certifications? Here’s why I chose…

Something crazy happened at Body Pump tonight: I increased my weight on biceps to 23 pounds!!! Ok, this probably doesn’t blow your mind at all, but this is a huge deal for me. I’ve been taking Body Pump classes, 2-3 times per week, for nearly 7 months now, but I have yet to increase my weight on biceps. It’s the only muscle group where I haven’t made progress. Before the biceps track started, Mal saw…

My food cravings are so random sometimes. A few hours after breakfast (overnight oats + iced coffee) this morning, my taste-buds wanted something cool, sweet, and creamy, but also crunchy and salty. There were lots of competing cravings, but I just went with it. So, for lunch today, I ended up pairing a banana smoothie with kale chips. It was random, yet nutritious and delicious. The banana smoothie was easily the highlight of the meal. In…

I think my new name should be “Snack Girl” from now on. I’ve been so snacky this afternoon. The snacks just don’t seem to stop! As soon as I got home from the gym, my snackfest started with an Uncle Jerry’s pretzel. And, then a couple of handfuls of Vanilla Almond Galaxy Granola that arrived on my doorstop from the company this afternoon. Obviously, I had to sample it right away! 😉 The Vanilla Almond…

I *think* Ecto is finally fixed! YAY!!! With the help of my amazing husband and webmaster, we somehow managed to fix it. Thank goodness for computer geeks! 😉 Let’s hope this is the end of my Ecto issues! After work, Mal and I took Murphy for a long walk around our neighborhood. Murph was so happy today! He couldn’t wipe the big pug smile from his face all afternoon. I love seeing him like that! On…

Tonight’s blog post title pretty much sums up how I feel about kale chips. They rule! I don’t know how I could have ever forgotten about kale chips!?! I haven’t made them since May 2008, which is totally crazy, right? Where has my mind been?! Along with a hefty serving of kale chips, I also had some carrot sticks with dinner. Hooray for a double serving of veggies! 😀 When Beth and Corey visited, they mentioned that…
