July 16, 2014

For those of you who have read my other blog posts, you know that my loves in life are: Peeps, kayaking, exercise, Mr. Ken and chipmunks. Although, not necessarily in that order. This kayaking season has been awesome; we’ve have perfect weather. We’ve only been kayaking on the local Charles River, but once you’re out […]

It is a gorgeous day! I had a great night’s sleep, did some exhilarating yoga and was off to start my day. I was walking down the street and a tremendous feeling of gratitude came over me. I am grateful for my strong and healthy body, the sunshine, my faith, and my family. As I […]

All it takes is 10 minutes

Okay, I am now convinced that a 10 minute interval is a very good thing. No surprise, some exercise convinced me. I used to think that if I couldn’t exercise for a solid 60 minutes, that it wasn’t worth exercising. Well, life gets in the way sometimes. I love how a quick 10 minute stretch […]

Torn hip cartilage, acute trochanteric bursitis, knee tendonitis, plantar fasciitis. These are just a few of the ailments that I’ve accumulated over the past few years. Flash forward to today and I am totally pain free. What happened? In short, I wasn’t listening to my body. No, I wasn’t running marathons. Heck I wasn’t even […]

I was at my favorite place in Cambridge last weekend, the Microsoft Research and Development Center, also known as the NERD Center; that’s appropriate, isn’t it? This conference was called Product Camp.  And believe it or not, I do have other interests in life besides exercise and Peeps.  Although, those two topics are more fun […]

It’s not about the marketing

Does good marketing insure success? No it doesn’t. Companies need to have substance and a personal connection behind their marketing claims. Mr. Ken is certainly enjoying a connection with his Easter Peep donut! It’s hard to see, but there is a little pink Easter Peep nestled in the donut hole.  As cute as that is, […]

We all need to recharge and relax. Even if you love what you do, you need a break. It’s wonderful to go to a different environment, but sometimes that’s just not possible. Relaxation can be a state of mind too. I am not able to physically get away much these days, but I’ve managed to […]
