Boston Restaurant Week: Union Bar and Grill

Banana, pre-Body Pump. The 2nd week of Body Pump version 73 was great.  I like the music and all of the tracks.  I’m noticing my mom is getting stronger.  I need to increase my weights before she’s lifting more than I am! 😉 I ordered a vegetarian wrap from the HealthWorks Cafe and snacked on […]

It’s a POM Wonderful Day

Even though we ate our dessert first (remember I had JP Licks fro-yo as soon as I finish my run last night?!?), Jared insisted on making dinner when we got home from grocery shopping.  He made Annie’s version of hamburger helper.  I topped my spinach with French dressing to go with the green and orange […]

Lower Back Attack

This was a late night snack last night. Spinach and Artichoke hummus, cucumbers, red peppers, lettuce, and good old American cheese. It was refreshing to eat so many veggies before heading to bed. I had an early morning doctor’s appointment in RI so I ate breakfast in the car. I am FINALLY dealing with my […]
