Self Magazine - the new Mean Girls #tutusrock

Self Magazine, a publication who "supports" women in nutrition, health, and advice made a colossal mistake in their April issue. The magazine has a page called BS Meter - their guide to what's legit and what is lame. Warning, I ramble when I am mad and Self Magazine really upset me....more

Espresso and Beer Pulled Pork Recipe - Tampa Style

I truly have a love affair with my slow cooker. I prepare everything the night before, turn it on in the morning and there is only one pot to clean up.

Wine and Dine Half Marathon - will I whine or wine?

Yesterday was National Runners Day and I learned this by receiving an email at 4am from Map my Run. Funny as last year, I would not have even acknowledged this holiday. This year, I think of everything I have accomplished and everything that I will accomplish and give myself a little pat on the back.I take back everything I said the other day about not trusting the Galloway method. Yesterday was week 2 day 2 of our official 10 miler training and I am finally feeling like I am getting on track with this new method....more
