Happy Labor Day

Labor Day, the unofficial end of summer, always gets me thinking about new starts and new goals.  I know it’s from the 19 times that fall meant the start of a new school year.  I just get rid myself of that association even when school has been in the past for more than a decade.

This Labor Day is no exception.  I’ve found myself thinking about what I’m going to do for my health, fitness and writing this fall – basically from now until the start of the holidays.  I also have a wedding 6 weeks away.  🙂  That’s always a reason to think about my fitness.

So, this Labor Day I’m going to do a mini cooking marathon.  That means I have to choose 4-5 main dishes to make, compose a grocery list, shop and then do some cooking.  I’d also like to go to the gym, by the cooking and all may be enough fitness for a day.  I also want to make doctors’ appointments in the next couple of months and enjoy my wedding and honeymoon.  🙂

Does Labor Day have you thinking about new goals to work towards the next few months?  What are some of your plans?

We Shook on It

This Sunday the fabulous fiance and I were having another conversation about how we should eat better, exercise more, etc.  We’ve both had some accomplishments with the latter this summer, but it is so easy to fall off the wagon especially when you throw in some work travel. So, in the midst of the chat, […]

Morning vs. Evening Exercise

My fabulous fiance is getting back on the health and fitness wagon this week.  He just made a Whole Foods run to buy stuff for healthy lunches, and he intends to start his morning runs again this week.  He is very much a morning exerciser.  I’m not certain I’ve ever seen him work out in […]


I only made it to the gym once this week.  After such a successful several weeks culminating in confirming that I’m at least one size down, I slacked off this week.  At least three days could be attributed to work.  I worked late twice this week and then had to give up a precious Sunday […]

Down a Clothes Size in a Month Thanks to Body Pump and a Wedding Dress

My parents and sister visited me this weekend to do some wedding stuff and go to a Red Sox game in Baltimore.  It is now less than two-and-a-half months to my wedding, and getting ready is more urgent. One of the big things still left to do by the end of last week was to […]

A Cooking Marathon Should Help me Get the Food Right

I am partway through my fourth week of going to the gym regularly.  The inches are flying off but the pounds aren’t.  I weigh the same this week as I did last week. Now you could argue this could be because muscle weighs more than fat, but I think I’m lucky to weigh the same […]

My second week in a row going to the gym regularly

I am happy to write that I went to the gym four times this week, and that means it was my second week in a row going regularly.  That is an accomplishment.  Car trouble on Monday kept me from matching the five times I went the first week, but I am proud of myself for […]

My First Week Back at the Gym after a Long Break

During the heart of my last successful attempt to lose weight, I worked out regularly.  I made it to the gym 4-5 times a week and incorporated activity into my daily life.  One of the reasons I gained back some of that weight was I stopped exercising a lot.  During the courtship with my fabulous […]

Getting Back to Our Roots

When Trish Milburn first started the Healthy Writer blog at, it was a one-person blog.  Within a month or so, I asked if I could post there once a week.  The blog quickly grew and there have been nearly 10 regular bloggers and many more guest writers in this space. As you may have […]
