A 10K run and 3 weeks to train

When you're running a 10K and have 3 weeks to train. Oops. http://diaryofadomesticdiva.com

I write because I love the feeling of challenging my thoughts. I run because I love the feeling of challenging my body. To be clear, I’m not in the big leagues, or even the little leagues of either of these, but I have a certain passion for both. A passion that ebbs and flows, shifting not with the tide but rather with my mood and my arthritis. Continue reading

How to #FuelYourAwesome and Recharge Your Goals with Bulletproof

I feel like I owe the last two months an apology: “Dear 2017, I’m sorry it only took me two months to undo what it took me nearly six months to achieve.” Sigh.  In what can only be described as a blur of stress, sleep-deprivation and thick-headedness, I have been… Continue reading

#ElevateTheSeason Like a Boss with Bulletproof Coffee

Making your cuppa Bulletproof coffee is a bit of a time commitment, if you consider making toast a time commitment. If you have 15 minutes to Tweet from the Seat, then you have five minutes to brew your morning coffee. Continue reading

#noexcuses: On Exercise, Sleep, Snacking and Eating the Damned Pie

So you fell off the feel-good wagon? Then hop back on because while the ride may not be smooth, it'll be worth it. And as you sort out issues like healthy eating, getting enough sleep, and exercising, I'll be right there with you -- and I'll bring the pie! http://diaryofadomesticdiva.com

Welcome to the land of #noexcuses, the place where if you fall, you pick yourself back up, dust yourself off and give it another go. For instance, I just reached for the tea instead of the wine. I also reached for the pie but that’s not the point. Continue reading

Girl Gone Green: The 7-Day Green Smoothie Reboot

Going Green: I did a 7-day green smoothie reboot and, not only were the recipes delish, I felt great! http://diaryofadomesticdiva.com

Truth be told, I am a big smoothie fan. In fact, I’m racking up the ‘frequent flyer’ miles for the number of times I’ve visited Booster Juice this summer. But going ‘green’ in my own kitchen, well, that’s just a whole new bag of spinach. Continue reading

New Year: fresh start, the evolution of #fit40s and birthday champagne, please.

It's a new year! Time for a fresh start, the evolution of the #fit40s journey and champagne, please! Erica dishes on not-resolutions and Mimosas over at http://diaryofadomesticdiva.com.

In my experience, resolutions — much like giving up chocolate for Lent at Easter — tend to fall by the wayside whereas goals, and the commitments set in place to achieve them, have staying power. The proof is in the chocolate avocado chia pudding. Continue reading
