An Ode to Cheese

Once upon a time, there was a girl whose father had customers in Wisconsin.

Every time he went to Dodgeville, she would drop hints about how much she’d love a cheesehead. (To express her love for the food, not the team. No offense, Packers fans.)

Every time he came home, he returned empty-handed.

She put this experience behind her, until the Packers won the Super Bowl. She was sick, and really rather grumpy, so she called her father and reminded him of this.

Be careful what you wish for, folks. A week later, there was a delivery. What did I find inside? My very own cheesehead.


This girl lost all of last week’s cooking mojo and ordered some sushi tonight. This girl is bummed she hasn’t found a good sushi place in her new hood yet.


This girl is done writing in the third person.

Back on the Bike

Hi! If you’re new here, you might want to check out my newly updated About page or my weight loss page. If you’re not new…well, carry on!


I left sunny Baltimore for this??

Although I miss my blog friends like crazy, it was nice to come home today–especially since I was home by 1pm. Usually when I go away for the weekend, I don’t come back until much later on Sunday so that I can maximize my time wherever I am. After being away for five days though, I was dying to get home.

It would have been really easy for me to blow off my workout when I got back, but there’s something about hanging out at a conference called Fitbloggin’ that inspires you to get your workout in when you get home, and so I went for a 12-mile bike ride.

I rode up the Hudson River path for about 6 miles and then turned around. I’m trying to just enjoy biking without getting obsessed with my speed, so I rode sans Garmin.

I do <3 my bike.

I also <3 sunshine. But you can’t win them all.

I went for my bike ride before unpacking, because I knew that once I got comfy, I wouldn’t want to get off my couch. It’s kind of like working out in the morning, I guess. Just work out before you can start making excuses.

I rode down to Energy Kitchen and got a turkey burger, potatoes and broccoli


Finally, I went back to my apartment and unpacked. Including all of this swag from Fitbloggin’. I’m most excited to try out the food scale.


Look who’s back! Thank god. I missed this little face 😀 My mom brought him in this afternoon because she had some stuff she had to pick up in the city.



With no food in the house, I also ordered dinner. Sushi and a veggie spring roll.

And now? It’s time to crash hard.

I think sushi is my ritual after I’ve come back from a weekend away. Do you have any food you always eat after you’ve been away?
