How's It Going?

I'm finally back from vacation. It was really tough getting my 10K steps in each day when we were in New York. My treadmill desk makes it so easy! Plus they were having a bad heat wave.

I did walk around the condo community with my mother-in-law most mornings — when we would walk all the way around, I'd get in 5,000 steps. But then I had to make sure I got the other 5,000 in — which usually meant a second walk in the evening.

I also ate a LOT on vacation! Lots of restaurant dinners, and dessert most every night. I actually gained 2 pounds by the end of it — not bad for 3 weeks away.

I'm excited to be back and am fully recommitted to working out again. Yesterday I did almost 13,000 steps AND I got in a 30-minute kettlebell routine. I'm looking forward to hitting the gym this week and doing some weight lifting, swimming, and maybe even a pilates or yoga class. This weekend, I plan to do a lot of gardening and I'm taking my daughter to rollerskating lessons on Saturday.

I want to know how YOU are doing! Please scroll down and share in the comments!

I have 25 years of experience in digital and online media & marketing. I started my career in Silicon Valley and Los Angeles, working at some of the world’s top ad agencies. In 2007, after my first child was born, I started this little food blog which I grew to over 250K monthly unique website visitors and over 350K social media followers. For nearly 15 years, I've helped my audience of mostly moms and women 25-65 cook for their families and live a healthier lifestyle.

 The year after I started the blog, I founded a blog network in the health & wellness space called Village Green Network. I started the company on my coffee table and bootstrapped the business to over $1.3 million in annual revenue within 5 years. During that time, I helped a number of our bloggers become six figure earners.

Because who can think about food when we are fighting the second revolutionary war and third world war? Don't worry, there will be more recipes one day. After the war is over.

  1. Glad you had a nice vacation and I am waiting w/ baited breath to hear all about it……and I hope you have pictures too. 🙂
    I had to chuckle……why are we women like this….? You mentioned you gained some weight. I always say the same thing……”how much weight did I gain?” “Oh dear! I gained 2 pounds!” Funny how we can’t go on vacation and just enjoy it…. always thinking about weight……..sigh.
    Sounds like you’re motivated to get to your routine!! Glad to have you back.
