Breaking Bad

It’s been two weeks without running, or any kind of physical exercise and I was coming up with all sorts of excuses:  my foot injury (ice it and move on); it’s too hot (there’s always the gym); I’m too tired (exercise will help that); stress at work (again, exercise helps stress) and in general, just feeling very sloth-like at the end of the day or (as I told myself) too busy on the weekends to do anything.  I know enough that I don’t feel good when I don’t exercise!

Ironically, even though I wasn’t running, my foot injury crept back and hit me hard.  I did ice, wore proper shoes to support my arch, and it’s fine again.  No excuse this morning about avoiding the running trail. (more…)


Shadow of the Day

It’s been two weeks since my last race and alas, two weeks since I’ve run.  I had intended on running last week when I was struck with a nasty stomach virus over the Memorial Day weekend.  I haven’t been that sick for probably five or six years.  The only plus side was that food didn’t even look appealing and I dropped a couple of pounds (always trying to find the positive)!


Thank You!

First, I’d like to thank Elaine of the Daily Choices Add Up blog for nominating my little blog for the Versatile Blogger Award!  She has a great blog about working out and food choices which gives me hope on my own journey.  Check her out at

  • Easy Crustless Quiche

    This is a fantastic recipe that is easily adapted to whatever you really love in your quiche.

    7 egg whites;
    1.5 C skim milk
    (for quiche shown)
    Add 1 C chopped vidalia onion (sauteed in oil first)
    1 chopped red pepper (sauteed with onion)
    1 10 oz. box of spinach (also sauteed)

    Heat oven to 450 and bake for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 375 for an additional 30 minutes. During the last 15 mins. add approximately 2 C of sharp cheddar cheese.

    This will yield approximately 6 large pieces, amounting to around 110 calories per piece.

    Failure is merely a perception; with each effort, we get the ability to start over again.
