What’s up, you guys? I’ve got a couple of news items for you. Thing one: I started a new blog to track my attempt at a Total Body Transformation. Whoo!  Here’s more info on the TBT details. Basically, you eat well and exercise a lot for 90 days and track your progress in the bold light of public scrutiny. BUT! You get […]

You need: Whole wheat gnocchi. Trader Joes’ takes two minutes to cook. Chopped broccoli florets, bite-sized (Get it pre-chopped: I don’t judge. Or you’ll have time while the water boils.) Jar of cooked gigante beans Sauce of choice Set a bunch of water on to boil. When the water boils, plunk in the gnocchi and set […]

Happy Thanksgiving, Internet!

My husband and I are some of those rare Portlanders who are actually from around these parts – both raised in Beaverton, to be exact – so we’ll just be running around the suburbs seeing family today. We are bringing wine and ice cream. Pretty straight-forward and stress-free.  The plan is to eat rolls and snuggle babies. […]

1. Though the macnocheeto from Homegrown Smoker is delicious, it is not suitable for lunch on days when one has a Get Fit Training session.  Even if the session is 7 hours later.  Both are serious business. 2. If one arm is bruised, it may not be better to get a flu shot in the […]

Dreams come true?

On Thursday night, I dreamt about smashing my fingernail. On Friday morning, I smashed one pretty well at work. On Friday night, I dreamt about spitting up food (gross, sorry).  On Saturday, I took a bite of something that I thought might not be vegetarian and spat it all out. On Saturday night, I dreamt […]

Here’s something I probably should have thought of – since I didn’t eat dinner last night, I am ravenous today.  Thank the derby gods for Effy, who pointed me to some string cheese.  Protein!  I might need another one (and another granola bar, etc.) to make it to the 4pm break.  I’m supposed to be […]

You’re in town for roller derby! That sounds fun. Let me guess: you want to have a Portland-tastic time, while being geographically tied to a not-very-exciting part of town (the Rose Quarter), and would prefer not to have to walk more than ten minutes in order to get to food, booze, etc., whenever you might need […]

Hi there! I just posted another weekend recap to the Rose City Rollers blog. And since I’ve been blogging all morning, I think my dear husband might have some ants in his pants to go out and enjoy our vacation. “Staycation” is not my favorite word, but that’s what we’re doing. Where else would we want […]

Beerquest 2011

1. This is what I really look  like after practice. Sorry, internet. 2. Drinking around the corner from Kay’s feels like cheating. 3. My knuckles are really beat up from our floor. 4. Our quest to try out every brewery in Portland this summer is going better than I might have planned. 5. The really […]

This weekend I had the intention to skate, really.   I had a date for rollerbasket*, but my skate tool is probably at the stupid hangar and I couldn’t change my wheels out.  So, I didn’t skate.  And I didn’t work out, really, aside from about 20 minutes of riding a bike, five minutes of dancing, and […]
