Expensive doesn’t always mean better

August 13, 2014

Sure, if you shop at high end stores like Nordstrom’s and Tiffany’s, you expect good service, but you don’t have to break the bank to get this kind of service. My new favorite store is Ocean State Job Lot. These are like Dollar Stores, where everything is pretty cheap. I love this store almost as […]

I am inspired by this healthy eating kick. So I went to Trader Joes and bought: - avocado – sea salt – refried beans – organic spinach – organic low fat yogurt. I have a half-baked idea that I will blend all of these items together to make a healthy something. 1. Avocado. Avocado has […]

I am on a constant quest to eat healthy. Alas, it is not easy, given the siren call of Dairy Queen Blizzards and my new favorite indulgence, salted caramel frozen yogurt. But I try. I am excited to receive some pretty interesting food products for review on Amazon. I am having a blast trying them […]

The lazy days of summer are upon us. I got to thinking about the summer and how I love it. Here’s why I love summer: 1. Many hours of daylight. I am a morning person and I love to exercise in the morning. That being said, it sure is hard to get up at 4:30 […]

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 […]

Confessions of a reformed runner

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 […]

More and more people are working from home these days, either because they’re self-employed or companies are trying to cut their real estate costs. Whatever the reason, there are lots of us. I recently attended a Meet-up for those who work from home. The whole day was a blast! This meet-up took place in the […]

I collect exercise balls and my dear husband collects computers. Here’s the story of his latest acquisition. He volunteered to help, er rather, I volunteered him to help a friend set up his new computer. Since this set up took almost a full day, our friend gave Ken his old laptop as a thank you. […]
