My quirky obsession

WIt was a rainy, two-cups-of-coffee-and-oatmeal-for-breakfast kind of Saturday. Pictured below: steel cut oats with a scoop of peanut butter and a teaspoon of agave syrup mixed in. I have nothing against brown sugar, but the agave was in a squeeze bottle, therefore, easier for a not-so-awake-Sunshine to manage. For dinner, V made shoyu chicken. ¬†I’ve […]

If everything aches, does that mean I’m doing it right?

Oh em gee!!!! My body HURTS!!!! I guess that’s evidence that I’ve successfully¬†kicked my bad-assery up a notch (last week’s goal). I finished Week 1 of Jillian Michaels’ Body Revolution and actually had several 2x/day workouts last week. I took two rest days (Saturday and Sunday) and am back at it again today. I did […]

He noted that while I clearly am dealing with aspects of a chronic illness, my posts seem to cover multiple aspects of wellness. I don’t know if he was just being nice, but that really made me smile.

Life is happening, bright and beautiful!!!, each and every day, and that matters more than the telling of it right now. In case anyone’s interested, here are some of the tasty highlights of the […]

The ocean makes everything better!

It was great to spend some time outdoors this week – after weeks of gloomy rain.¬†I’ve been missing the beach a lot, so when we had some sunny days, I took advantage¬†of the sunshine and headed to the water. ¬†It’s hard to believe that something I love so much has only been part of my […]

Tangy jumbo shrimp with peas and peppers

So, thanks to my clients’ generosity, I’m now HOOKED on jabong. Hooked, I tell you!¬† I ran out on Wednesday, and knowing I couldn’t get more until Saturday, decided to pick up a regular grapefruit at the store for comparison’s sake. Truth be told, I liked the jabong better. This was good – but brought […]
