Enjoying the treadmill?!

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 …

IMG_1069

This morning’s run wins a new accolade: it was officially the coldest run I’ve ever done. 12 degrees, with a “feels like –2 degrees” situation from Weather.com due to the wind chill? Yeah, it was really freaking cold. But you know what? It was worth it to spend the morning looking at views like this. Even when it’s this cold… the Continue Reading …

Now, I’m getting caught up on some AnneTheRD client work before a couple more client meetings this afternoon, and also doing some blog prep because the Continue Reading …

Running D.C.’s Frozen Tundra + A Simple Lunch

Hello from the polar vortex, aka Washington DC! It’s nice and sunny out today, but MAN is it cold out there and the sidewalks are still a mess of snow, too. I walked over to one of my favorite coffee shops this morning to do some work after being cooped up at home all day yesterday, and my face nearly froze off on the 1/2 mile walk here.

Hello from a very snowy DC – it’s really coming down out there! GW is closed today for the weather so the Basic Nutrition class I’m teaching was cancelled this morning; more time to catch up on emails and other work are not a bad thing this week! Lots going on, both with blogging stuff (the Winter Shape Up starts next week – so excited!) Continue Reading …

Hello, friends! I hope you’re all having a great day so far! I’m using the government holiday as an opportunity to see a bunch of my local AnneTheRD clients that normally need to meet outside of business hours. Perfect! As for the weekend, it was nice and low key – Matt was out of town on a boy’s trip (in San Diego – so jealous), so I Continue Reading …
