Soooo, anxiety has been kicking my butt lately, and it’s so frustrating. What’s even worse is that I have no idea why it’s plaguing me right now – it basically came out of nowhere. It could be related to everything going on in my gut right now. (Mind and body, especially the gut, are highly connected AND vice versa.) But I was in a flare for 5+ years and never felt like this, so I…

And just like that Fitbloggin’ 11 is all over. The two-day conference totally flew by, but I enjoyed every. single. moment of it. What I didn’t enjoy, however, was saying goodbye to my blog buddies!! Wah. It was actually sort of sad. I had such a good time with them, I didn’t want to leave Fitbloggin’! After running and breakfast, I attended the most wonderful session about intuitive eating: The Ditch The Diet: Eat Intuitively panel,…

I survived! I didn’t pass out or say anything really weird (or embarassing) at my book signing last night! But, seriously, my book signing went really well””much better than expected, and I had a lot of fun, which says something since public speaking is the bane of my existence. The evening started with dinner at the Coolidge Corner Clubhouse with Mal and my sister. Before my book signing, I was insanely nervous, so I ordered a…

Good morning! 😎 I am determined to get stuff done today! I have a huge To Do list written down, so as soon as I finish this post, I’m going to get cracking on it! Breakfast I started my day with Overnight Oats in a Jar. In the mix: oats, quinoa, chia seeds, soy milk, ground flaxseed meal, and a squirt of honey. I also drank an iced coffee with soy milk. I rule at…

Good news: I faced my fear of public speaking and survived the food blogging panel!! Bonus: I didn’t pass-out and I only said a few weird things! 😉 Really, it wasn’t that bad. I was nervous the whole time, but I managed to form complete sentences and, hopefully, people took something useful away from it. The other bloggers on the panel with me were Stephanie from Lick My Spoon and Damaris from Kitchen Corners, and Ryan…

Greetings from high in the sky! 😎 I’m heading west to San Francisco for the 2nd Annual Foodbuzz Festival! Wahoo!! I can’t wait! This weekend is all about good friends, good food, and good times! Just check out my posts from the 2009 Foodbuzz Festival! It was so fun! 😀 Breakfast On my way to the airport, I snacked on a Gala apple. It was crisp, sweet, and juicy! Just the way I like ’em! 😀…

As you know, I was incredibly nervous before the Learn to Blog seminar. The Marketing Director at Healthworks realized this, so she suggested that we meet at Bouchee before the seminar to go over the format of the talk and enjoy a cocktail to relax my nerves. Bouchee serves authentic French brasserie cuisine in an upbeat and beautifully designed setting. They have a wonderful outdoor patio for that authentic café experience. But, Hannah and I…
