Some times friends are the best inspiration

Meg just sent me a 3 photo progression of her abs and now I’m going to cut out processed food and simple carbs while adding in more protein because GOD DAMN that girl has got something working for her.

She is pretty much always my fitness/food inspiration. She isn’t actually as crazy as I pretend she is. Though I am fairly certain I will never be the person who actually likes working out, I gain some hope in the fact that she was once like me and didn’t make it priority. Now she does and she looks and feels wonderful (according to what she tells me and her overall energy level).

So. I will try. I will try clean eating. I will also start a new exercise regimen. Oy.

This is how Brother The Saint describes the labor and delivery triage room at the hospital they went to for Baby C’s birth. I can’t stop laughing picturing it.

Acronyms are funny things

To someone who knows them, it’s a few letters which signify so much. If you don’t know them, it’s like another language. Then there is the added complication of multiple things have the same acronym.

Apparently June is the month I start thinking up things I want for my birthday in July. I am going to blame my self-imposed shopping ban.

If you were to name and Etsy shop, what would you name it?

you would be selling vintage housewares and personal items from approximately the 40s through 70s.

What is the actual point of car alarms?

Summer nights

There’s something magical about them. Ripe for both relaxation or adventure. Always a sense of happy contentment.

Not much provides or reminds you of that feeling quite like the wind whipping through an open car window. Whether personal or taxi. Especially with your people by your side or waiting at your destination.

I think this summer will be a good one.

Nephew B will occasionally go out for breakfast (accompanied by an adult, often his nanny). This morning he and his nanny were out to breakfast and they ran into the Governor of NJ. The Governor was nice enough to take a photo with B.

Later, his nanny asked B who they had met today. B responds “Topham Hatt.” As in the conductor from Thomas the Tank Engine. That’s high praise coming from B, who is 2 going on 3 and obsessed with Thomas. I’m cracking up.

Honestly there are so many wonderful things about kids but my favorite is probably hearing their responses and finding out how they see the world. It’s usually impressive or hilarious.

In case you are unaware

Eating disorders are real, treatable medical illnesses. Your love of food or lack thereof is not at issue. This illness as manifested in numerous forms has more to do with body dismorphism, control, and other mental health concerns than it does with someone’s love of food.

Please stop saying you don’t have an eating disorder because you just love food too much or because you don’t have enough self-control.

Saying that belittles what people suffering from, managing and recovering from Eating Disorders, are dealing with. It’s inappropriate, inaccurate and rude.

If you want more information please visit the National Institute for Mental Health or google it yourself.
