Golden Cauliflower Soup

It’s not exactly soup weather in Austin yet. The temperature is still annoyingly hovering in the high 80s, and the stack of (super cute) sweaters I bought a few weeks ago sits on my shelf, mocking me and the life choices that brought me to the land of perpetual flip flops and the (questionable) glory of swimming holes. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t eat soup. In fact, I’m eating... read more

Barbells At The New Craptastic

In my quest for lean superhero-ness, I’m following the Wendler 5/3/1 strength training program. Twice a week, Dave and I are hitting the craptastic gym (old craptastic | new craptastic) in our Converse to lift heavy and crank through a cashout. Hooray! It’s Open! We’re back! It was a South Austin Miracle yesterday morning: the new craptastic — now with well-lit bathrooms and air... read more

Whole30: Self-Care Edition 10/24/12

From October 2 through at least October 31, I’m documenting my Whole30 and autoimmune protocol, including the when, what, where, and how much of my sleep, activity, food, and mood. Although I follow the Whole30 guidelines 90% of the time anyway, I’m going all-in for the next 30 (or maybe 60) days to give my body a chance to stabilize after enduring adrenal burnout and a thyroid medication... read more

Tuesday 10: My Zombie Apocalypse Playlist

I don’t usually wear a costume on Halloween (because in my world, every day is dress-up day), but I do love to think about zombies and vampires and demons from Hell — and daydream about the (delicious) crappy candy I won’t be eating. Thanks to Hilah, I had Bram Stoker’s Dracula (the book, not the movie) and The Historian on my mind for a few days, and Richard Kadrey’s Sandman... read more

Dear Barbells: I Miss You

My super crappy, but much beloved craptastic gym has been closed for a month, and I’m here to tell you that in the epic battle between “Out of sight; out of mind.” and “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” the clear winner for me is “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” Last Monday, I was feeling optimistic about our chances of throwing around some barbells.... read more

Cooking With Hilah & Me

I want to introduce you guys to my pal Hilah. Say hi! Hilah and her partner Chris are the beauty, brains, brawn, and badassery — I’ll leave it to you to decide who’s who — behind the internet cooking show Hilah Cooking. I have to admit, I’m always a little envious when Hilah shares a new episode because she’s not hamstrung by the rules of paleo, and her food always looks... read more

Beautiful Bracelet Giveaway

I have a tendency to cover my spaces — and myself — with messages. Our mirrors and refrigerator are scrapbooks of photos, postcards, and handwritten notes to remind me of thoughts both profound and silly. My Converse are personalized with Sharpie messages, and most days, I wear a black leather cuff on right wrist that says “Never cheat. Never quit.” And then, of course, there are my... read more
