The Cookie ChRUNicles

I am a divorced mother attempting to raise my eleven year-old son to understand the benefits of healthy eating and an active lifestyle. I am an avid runner, vegetarian with a sweet tooth and hold a Professional Certificate in Nutrition for Optimal Health, Wellness and Sports Performance. I am hoping the knowledge I receive better equips me to discuss various health/food/fitness topics on my blog, The Cookie ChRUNicles. In addition to health and food, I write and have an ebook being released soon regarding divorce and co-parenting.

I had a super close call with a computer virus Friday afternoon and since then, I have been trying to keep my computer running smoothly but it’s really not cooperating. Computers test my patience more than my [...] The post Let’s Catch Up appeared first on The Cookie ChRUNicles ....more

being flexible with your routine & workout recap

Happy Sunday, Happy Summer and a very Happy Father’s Day! It’s somewhat funny that I shared my workout routine/plan earlier this week and then I didn’t follow it. I ended up moving my planned workouts around to better accommodate my life and schedule which honestly, is really important ....more

how I get through the bad runs…

I have this issue where I constantly change radio stations. I have always been this way and really can’t help myself. I remember as a little girl someone once telling me that if I would only leave a bad song on, a really good one was bound to come on next ....more
