My Fashion Finds for 2016

I haven’t been to the mall in ages. From the day after Thanksgiving to at least New Year’s Day, I avoid any shopping center like the PLAGUE. The crowds, the clutter, I can’t handle it. So I’ve waited and bided my time and man am I glad I did.
I ventured out this past weekend and managed to score big while spending less than $20.

I am Runner, Hear Me Roar.

If you had asked me a year ago to exercise everyday, join a running group and complete a marathon; I probably would have unfriended you on Facebook or started a Twitter war.

Now, I have done all of those things and I want to do more.

I’m already planning for my next marathon. Somewhere. At some point. Soon. Ish.

Recipe of the Month: Kitchen Sink Salad

Have you ever been invited to a last minute gathering and not had anything to bring? You know the end of summer potluck bbq thing where everyone is bringing these homemade casseroles or triple layer chocolate brownies and you’ve got nada. No? Never happened to you? Well fine then. Good to know you’re on top of things…imageedit_9_8222140971

I, on the other hand, was freaking out because I had no food and no time and needed something that wasn’t packaged to bring to the table. So, naturally, I called my mother.

Conquering My Fear of Fitness

original

In 2014, I made 2 resolutions for the new year. One was to start a blog. Check. The other was more of a challenge. I decided I wanted to be able to run a marathon in 2015. Well, 3 weeks from now I will (hopefully) be running in my very first marathon.

I won’t lie, I am scared shitless.

I Finally Found the Perfect Bathing Suit

It only took me 32 years. Let’s be honest, I’ve never liked bathing suits. They are tight and uncomfortable and I tend to feel like a beached whale with a camel toe. Not cute. At all. However, I’ve been working out all summer and training for my marathon, so if ever was the time to do some swimwear shopping, it was this summer while I still had curves in the “right” places. Also, I really needed a bathing suit for Block Island. An old tank and board shorts for the impteenth year in a row seemed no longer acceptable.
