The Everyday Road to a 10-Miler – Week 1

by Angela on November 14, 2014

The last time I ran more than 3 miles was March 2012.  Let’s do the math…2 years and 8 months ago.  A lot can happen in almost 3 years, but in my case, not much happened on the running front. I just stopped. The race I ran was an awesome race.  It’s one of the […]


The Transformation Workout

by Angela on July 7, 2014

I have been on a little exercise hiatus lately, so it’s been hard to write about my previous workout plan knowing I haven’t been following it lately.  I must admit, I’m in a rut.  I had some minor surgery a couple weeks ago to remove some abnormal cells on my cervix (which all came back […]


This is 40

by Angela on June 4, 2014

I turned 40 on Easter, and I’m okay with it.  I’m fine with the age 40 and saying that I am now 40, but I would be lying if I told you I didn’t FEEL (or feel I look) 40.  It wasn’t until Easter Sunday came and went that I started noticing little things here […]


Mason Jar Salads

by Angela on January 9, 2014

This one is a long time coming.  I have perused Pinterest for various pictures, recipes and tips for mason jar salads but it has taken me months to finally make the effort to try this out.   Blame it on the new year and all those attempts at resolutions for making this finally happen! Let […]


2014 Intentions

by Angela on January 1, 2014

I hate to be so cliche, but I really do like the whole New Year’s Resolution thing.  I like coming up with my list, trying to think of new ways to improve myself, and then attempting to carry them out sometime during or by the end of a year, usually failing miserably, but the intention […]


Do Not Fear the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM)

by Angela on August 4, 2013

I know the thought of cleaning your face with oil sounds absurd.  I thought the exact same thing when I first heard about it.  But before I go into the details, let me tell you why I like the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) and have stuck with it for over 6 months now: – It […]


Meat Free Monday: Chickpea Curry

by Angela on June 18, 2013

It’s been a while since I’ve done a meat-free recipe post.  But I’ve discovered one that is worth sharing.  If you like curry, you’ll love this recipe!  I’ve made it a few times now.  A couple times I added cubed chicken, but today I made it completely meat-free.  It’s actually an altered version of a […]


Making Changes – Let the juicing begin!

by Angela on May 27, 2013

Well you would think between Deena and I, we could manage more than 1 or 2 posts a month, but apparently that’s not the case!  So here I am for my monthly blog post, although I really do have good intentions to write more.  Deena and I were just talking about it today, in fact. […]

Dying Eggs, Naturally Dah-ling

by Angela on March 29, 2013

Easter snuck up on me this year.  I think because it’s been unseasonably and unbearably COLD lately (it snowed earlier this week…what?!)!  It just doesn’t feel like spring.  But Easter is only a couple days away and, as is our annual tradition, we dye about a dozen eggs for the Easter Bunny to hide. Every […]


Celebrating Baby

by Angela on January 21, 2013

No, no, not my baby…well sort of.  My brother and sister-in-law’s baby….so kind of like mine, but not really.  🙂  My baby brother (10 years younger than me!) is going to have a baby….waaaaahhhh!  How can this be when it was just yesterday he was a 10 year old twerp and I was a young […]
