Four Tips For Eating at a Buffet That I Figured Out During a Vacation in Mexico

January 3, 2018

I spent Christmas on a fantastic vacation in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. My whole family met up there, and we stayed at an all-inclusive resort. And, like many all-inclusive resorts, this one had a lot of buffets.

I haven’t eaten at many buffets since I started losing weight, and the thought of all the buffets was a bit daunting. After all, they Read the rest of this entry »

Ten Hours in Reykjavik, Iceland!

September 20, 2017

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted on here, and that’s because I just spent a week in Europe! I went to visit my friend Katherine in Sweden, but on my way there, I had a long layover in Iceland. And even though my stay was short, I made the most of it.

My plane landed in the middle of the afternoon, and the airport is Read the rest of this entry »


Raw Fish, Subterranean Brothels, and a Black Sun: 34 Hours in Seattle

March 29, 2017

Look! Raw fish, and lots of it!

Poke – pronounced po-kay, but I pronounce it wrong (po-key) all the time – is a Hawaiian dish of raw fish marinated in oil, soy sauce, scallions, and other aromatics. It’s a food trend at the moment, and one that I hadn’t Read the rest of this entry »


Eating Well With My Sister in Chicago. No, Scratch That… Eating GREAT!

March 3, 2017

Want to eat healthy while visiting Chicago? Stay with my sister Laura. Seriously. I’ll give you her number if you want. (No I won’t.) I stayed a few days with her after the Hancock race, and she made making good choices while traveling super easy. And her dog Conrad is a cutie!

Conrad is 13 years old and completely blind, and I love hanging out with him! Laura has been on her own health kick for quite some time, and she’s still going strong: Read the rest of this entry »


Christmas In Michigan, Part One: I Ate Too Much Food

December 29, 2016

I’m back in California after a wonderful week celebrating Christmas in Michigan. Usually I’m good about eating well while traveling, but this time I ate too much. I also exercised like a maniac (more on that in my next post), so I’m not wallowing in guilt or regret. I enjoyed good food with friends and family, and I’m already back on track with my healthy habits.

Can I start with a brag? My cheese board skills are ON POINT:

May 3, 2016

What a fantastic weekend! My high school friend Emily got married to a great guy named Rich, and that was an excellent reason to head to Phoenix for a few days. Here I am with the bride, and our high school friend Heather:

These Are the Last Photos I’m Gonna Share from Seattle and Portland, I Swear

January 28, 2016

I must’ve written reams about my three days in Seattle and Portland (case in point: this post and this post), and I’m almost done, I promise. Just one more post, because this was a successful weekend in addition to my stair racing endeavors. Why? Largely because of snacks.
