There’s some old railroads in my area that have been converted into hiking trails, and JJ and I have been hitting portions of these trails during many of our weekends over the past few months. It occurred to me recently that if JJ and I targeted a couple specific areas, than we will have cumulatively covered a continuous stretch of trail that’s 47 miles long! That became a new goal… and I reached that goal on Sunday.
Check it out: We’ve covered this entire 23.5-mile trail, twice! (There and back.)

Most of the trail is called Read the rest of this entry »

I can’t wait until I can get a haircut. I want one so badly.
In other news… even in a pandemic, I’m finding new-to-me products that pique my curiosity. I don’t go out of my way to explore and find new items in the supermarket, but if I happen to see something I’ve never seen before (typically in endcap displays or near items I buy regularly), chances are I’ll buy it and bring it home. Wanna read about my latest new-to-me purchases? Read the rest of this entry »

All I wanted was a simple post-workout photo, and JJ photobombed it!
And then, seconds later, JJ landed a kiss right on my lips, complete with tongue! Read the rest of this entry »

In my last post, I shared a big exercise win for the week: my first run in six months. This post is about a big food win – a delicious meal with a few interesting (and new-to-me) ingredients.
Looks delicious, right? It’s vegetables, pasta, and ground meat. Except that it’s not pasta or meat, at least not in the traditional sense. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s been a good week, and I want to share my successes. That’s right, plural! Not one success, but two!
WHOA! I need a haircut!
I’ll share one of those successes in my next post. This post is about a huge exercise win: I went running for the first time in six months! After Read the rest of this entry »

I want to get back into monthly weigh-ins. And since a new month began a couple days ago, I stepped on a scale, and was down another pound! I had weighed myself midway through April, for the first time since I began working from home, and had lost 9.2 pounds at that point. That’s now a total of 10.2 pounds lost in the seven weeks that my state has been under a Stay-at-Home order. (Here’s how I’m doing it: Part 1 and Part 2)
Getting back into monthly weigh-ins means I should Read the rest of this entry »

A couple weeks ago, I entered a fun challenge at work: to make a dish, over the weekend, that used three mystery ingredients. Check out what I came up with! This past weekend, I participated in the challenge again. The first time, the challenge was to make an entree. This time, the task was to make an appetizer!
But you can’t just make any appetizer. You have to use the three mystery ingredients, which, this time around, were: Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve been seeing whole, fresh vegetables being sold as snacks lately, and I hope it’s a trend that takes off! I’m not talking about snack chips that use a little cauliflower or spinach powder in them, I’m talking about unadulterated vegetables… in snack form!
I found these Poshi vegetable pouches at the store before the lockdown began, but didn’t Read the rest of this entry »

I’m making the most of the stay-at-home order in my state, and the scale is proof. I’m 9.2 pounds lighter since I began working from home! In Part One, I talked about my food choices. In this post, I’m tackling exercise. And to sum it up, I’m exercising a lot.
Believe it or not, that’s a selfie! I’m using Read the rest of this entry »
