A Full Final 24 Hours in Michigan

August 8, 2016

I’m back home in Los Angeles. I had a wonderful trip, but it feels so good to be sleeping in my own bed again, for the first time in six weeks. Kinda hard to believe it’s been so long, but as the cliched saying goes, time flew by. Good thing I Read the rest of this entry »

My Early Morning Swim in the Detroit River AND a Visit to the Largest Farmers Market I’ve Seen

July 31, 2016

I had a good, sweaty time taking my friend Geoff’s High Octane class last week, so when he invited me to another workout, I jumped at the chance. All I had to do was show up at Belle Isle Beach on Saturday morning at 8am. Wait, what?

Halibut with Fig and Caramelized Onion Sauce

July 28, 2016

I haven’t done a recipe post lately, probably because I’ve been traveling, but that changes right now. This recipe involves a fantastic and potentially hard-to-find ingredient: fresh figs.

Seeing Indianapolis on a Bike

July 26, 2016

I mentioned in my last post that a recurring foot injury prohibited me from taking many of the group fitness classes offered during the Fitbloggin’ conference, but I sure didn’t stay sedentary. I rode a bike around the city… TWICE!
