Just a Taste

Tonight, I was thinking about how I used to blog so much more – a few times a day when I started on Tumblr, but even once I moved over to WordPress, still sometimes twice a day.

On Facebook, I saw that tomorrow is a former coworker’s birthday. She’s going to be 26, Facebook told me. How is she only 26, I thought? It was a few years ago that I worked with her. (Oh right, she was an intern.)

I was 26 when I started this blog. I’d just moved to New York, and I didn’t know a ton of people, didn’t have many hobbies and hadn’t yet assumed such a big commitment with Junior League. I wasn’t coming home and sitting on the couch with Bailey every night, but I wasn’t as busy as I am now. As I wrote a few years ago, it was the perfect time to lose weight. And also start a blog, apparently.

More to come on all of the below soon …

But after finishing a ginormous project today, I met up with Tina and Monica for a wine and cheese media event at the Columbus Circle Whole Foods. I keep telling them I hate wine, but they refuse to listen, so…


Dear Theodora: there is nothing about that angle that works for you.


Dear Green Dog: that angle always works for you.


After, I stopped at a Lyfe Kitchen media event my friend Steph invited me to. Lyfe is a company that’s launching as both a line of restaurants and food that will be available in a grocery store. Again, I’ll write more soon, but the premise is that it’s all healthy and low-sodium. Which you would think would be a recipe for no taste, but the taste of the frittata I had was actually really flavorful.

Anyway, that’s a taste of what I’ve been up to. What have you been up to lately?

      Are you in the Junior League?? I’m on our Management Council, overseeing our PR/marketing/advocacy efforts.

    That brown stuff in the glass (Third Picture)….Good heavens, is it what I think it is ??

    I think I just lost my weight loss determination. As for the wine…I would have not let a single drop go to waste.

    By the way…are your images up on Pinterest ?

      It’s chocolate mousse!

      I haven’t really pinned my own images, but anything that other people have pinned is at pinterest.com/source/losingweightinthecity.com.

    I think the same happened to me once I moved to WP… it’s just so much easier… I was thinking to write a post about how easy it is to start your own blog in wp.. maybe you can edit it for me 😉

    There’s nothing wrong with a little wine here and there. Many argue that a glass a day is good for overall health, longevity, and actually ones metabolism leading to a natural, faster daily calorie burn. And while I can’t personally account for wine’s effects because I’m a beer guy, I can speak through experience when I say that a beer or two a day (nothing extreme) does not impact one’s ability to lose or manage their weight or overall fitness. Maybe I’m just an exception though. Don’t know. What I do know is, for me, a little beer goes a long way. 🙂
