This Is How I Like to Spend My Saturdays:

I feel so good, I've gotten back into running and hiking more often and it feels great! Luckily it was just me and a bottle of wine last night and not me and 5 shots and dancing until I can't move. It's always easier to exercise the next morning when I've been a wino and not a party animal...

Tonight I ate like an adult:

I've taken a cue from Amanda over at "Lullabies to Terrorize" (her blog can be seen here and have begun to do a 30 day challenge for myself in honor of new beginnings. Essentially the idea is to do something full on, with passion, for 30 days, that you've not been doing in your past life.

For me this means cooking healthy, unique dinners. I really like to cook but us single-tons have a way of heating up a Lean Cuisine and making it look appetizing. This ends today.

Day 1:
I've challenged myself to cook dinners at home during the work week. Tonight I had my best friend over for a little movie/wine/dinner marathon. I made chicken in a creamy chive sauce with broccoli and red potatoes.....and wine.

The recipe can be viewed here at

Come se dice in Italiano..."Buon Appetito!"

I'm going to do good things for myself this year:

Making out with a total stranger on the dance floor last night was not my finest hour. Now I can put that kiss and the rest of last year behind me. Bring it on 2011, I'm going to do good things for myself this year.
