Good morning from a very snowy DC! Let’s warm up with talk of something really delicious and ridiculously easy I made earlier this week: a Crockpot Chicken Curry of sorts!

My partner in crime for this morning’s running Continue Reading …

These cookies are not healthy by any stretch of the imagination, but you guys know I’m a firm believer in the fact that being Continue Reading …

Good morning! I’m feeling good this morning – it’s Friday, it’s not –10 degrees (mid 30’s = heat wave), and I dragged myself out of bed this morning for a run and was rewarded with this view. As always, SO worth it, both for the view and of course for how great getting in a morning run makes me feel for the rest of the day. My Continue Reading …

Nutty Protein Granola Bars

One of my longest running AnneTheRD nutrition counseling clients and I usually meet at a bakery in Alexandria that sells these really delicious homemade protein granola bars.

Enjoying the treadmill?!

20140129_120430

Guys, something crazy happened yesterday. Actually, two crazy things. First – the treadmill won out over running outside for the first time in literally, oh, 2 years or so. And second, even crazier – I actually really enjoyed it. Who am I?! Don’t worry, I don’t plan on this blog becoming photos of treadmills instead of pretty early Continue Reading …
