Veggie Pot Pie

I made a veggie pot pie the other day from a bunch of cobbled together recipes and my own flair.  I just couldn’t find one online that worked.  I’m particularly giving the side-eye to this recipe, which added soy sauce to the veggie pot pie.  Nasty! Crust Ingredients 2 1/2 cups flour 1 tablespoon sugar […]

How to Make a Perfect Pie

I spent most of my life intimidated by dough.  I tried my first pie about six months ago and it came out perfect.  Then my dough started being awful.  It wouldn’t mix together to make a dough.  Instead it would crumble when I tried to form it.  If I added more water, it would get […]

I must be in a song

When I first started running I would get this strange feeling like my heart was skipping some beats.  Google searches revealed other adjectives like fluttery and irregular.  It turns out I needed more electrolytes and as soon as I drank water with electrolytes the problem went away.   Well, lately I’ve had the fluttery feeling […]

Anxiety and Running

I’ve always been an anxious person.  As a child I read that Mozart died prematurely because his father kept him up too late at piano recitals.  Of course I know this sounds crazy, but as a child this caused me to have chronic insomnia.  If Mozart could die young, so could I! In college I […]

I haven’t talked about exercising lately and you may be wondering how it’s been going.  Or you weren’t wondering at all because fitness blogging is boring.  My activity level is slightly up, but I’ve been eating more.  Because after months of salad, I really wanted some chocolate.     The top image was going down […]

Running Playlist

Occasionally I Google my name in case someone is talking bad about me on the internet.  I realized today that my running playlist on Spotify is associated with my name.  I’ve since deactivated their automatic publication setting.  Ridiculous.  Potential clients do not need to search on my name and discover that I like to run […]

Garden Results

The garden has produced tons of tomatoes lately.  Two of the tomato plants didn’t even start producing until September and now I pick tomatoes every day.  The spotted ones are part of the newer producers.     When you have lots of tomatoes, you need to use them in recipes.   But I’m trying to cut […]

Exercising to Lose Weight

There’s a lot of information on the internet about diet and exercise.  One thing that seems ridiculous to me is the argument that there’s no point in exercising because it won’t help you lose weight.  See, for example, this NYMag article or this blog.  A lot of people also think that you can be healthy when you’re […]

Fitbit Update

I’ve been reading exercise blogs lately, and they’ve very boring because they’re too centered on the writer so I’m going to try and write a more interesting one.  I’ve been using the Fitbit since March and I’m slowly making progress.  The Fitbit generates an activity score, which is a measure of how sedentary the user […]
