Sorry Starbucks, I no longer love you a latte!

Dear Starbucks or should that be Dear John, Yes I am breaking up with you.  It has been a tumultuous caffeine ridden realtionship.  It has had its jittery ups and exhausted downs.  I have gone from simple lattes to cappucinos to eggnog lattes to  non fat skinny mochas no whip to skinny non fat soy […]

Good-bye old friend….

It’s that time of year again.  I have avoided it for several years but it is a must this year.  It’s time.  I have to say hello and good-bye and both will be painful in a way only women can understand. My time came earlier than for most of you. I have to …I have […]

What’s my excuse…well let me tell you!

Can’t keep quiet about this and apparently lots of other people can’t either.  I wasn’t going to write about this especially today since I have a to-do list that would kill anyone and deadlines but I can’t keep quiet. By now most of you have seen this photo: Nothing wrong with the photo.  She has […]

Running on the beach, Bo Derek made it look so easy!

If you are younger than I am you may not remember the movie “10” so the reference to Bo Derek may escape you.  Let me catch you up quickly. This is how Bo Derek looked running on the beach in the movie. And when I finally had the chance ( after several attempts) to run […]

It’s Thoughtful Thursday! Forgetting to be grateful for….

Happy Thoughtful Thursday!  Feel honored as I am postponing cleaning my frig to write this post.  You see cleaning my refrigetrator is one of my all time favorite things to do! NOT! There is a lesson for me in gratitude in that statement.  As many of you know I sprained my wrist this week when […]

My life as a Sitcom: Am I turning into Maxine? OMG

Lately I have been noticing alot of little things and they are all starting to irritate me.  Then I had an awful thought: “Am I turning into one of those cranky people that complains all the time about the little things? This picture came to mind: Oh no!  After I tell you my thoughts and […]

My Relationship Status with the Treadmill: “It’s Complicated”

Dear Treadmill, I need you, I want you, I dislike you intensely.  You are always there for me, calling me, acting coy.  You whisper sweet encouragement like: I will go as fast or as slow as you want Your running wish is my command I have a fan for you and lots of buttons for […]

Run for the dream..just don’t run out of gas!

This past Sunday I completed my third half marathon and the only one I have attempted in warm weather.  The weather and Vitamin P ( procrastination) are the two biggest obstacles to my running. I always come away  from these races with some good insights, a few chuckles and some new ( although often temporary) […]

The Worst Excuse Yet for Not Exercising..but funny!

I’ve heard a lot of excuses for not exercising and I’ve come up with many on my own.  Some of the excuses are valid, others borderline on “the dog ate my homework” “the dog ate my running clothes, shoes, water bottle..”  Wait , judging from the puppies I have had that one might actually be […]

Let’s play “Where is Jenn?” on her Virtual Tri to Florida aka the UNamazing Race

I think it might be easier to find Waldo than to find me.  Trying to keep all my plates spinning in the air has been quite a challenge.  This virtual tri is quite the opposite of the Amazing Race.  The only amazing thing about it is that I am still determined to do it. Hit […]
