I suffered major sticker shock the other day. I made a quick stop at a supermarket, to pick up a watermelon to bring to a get-together. While looking for the melons, a lady offered me a free sample of a mango. Yes, please!
It was delicious. She pointed to the Read the rest of this entry »

I was figuring out my breakfast the other day when I realized two of the nectarines I had purchased at the farmers market had gone moldy. No bueno. So I decided to take stock of all the produce in my house, and I came to a startling conclusion: Lots of it was on the verge of going bad. I wasn’t eating it fast enough!

I’ve been blue the past week and a half. I often get this way after big races, and the One World Trade Center event in Manhattan certainly qualifies as a big race. I’ve been good about exercising since I’ve been back from New York, but other things have suffered. My eating, for one, hasn’t been great, and I haven’t been productive with other things I have going on.
This post isn’t about depression, though. It’s about getting over a depression. I was tired of feeling unmotivated and lethargic. I was tired of being the guest of honor at my own pity party.

Then I decided to do both in one day.
