Being less active doesn’t mean my appetite has slowed down at all. I’m constantly fighting the snack monster. Usually, I’m good with a carrot or a piece of fruit. But this injured ankle thing has been making me feel sorry for myself, so I’ve been making less guilt-free snacks like oatmeal cookies. Recently, I was… [Read More]
Groceries. The final frontier of our budget. We got rid of a car, the TV, we don’t shop for new clothes/toys…and I haven’t signed up for any races in months.

The end result was a White Chocolate Chai Chia Pudding, reminiscent of my days as a barista when we’d mix white chocolate syrup and chai tea for… [Read More]
