Sometimes Healthy, Usually Cupcakes

I’m not really sure how this Sometimes Healthy Living blog, as of recently, has evolved into a blog mostly about cupcakes and donuts.

Cupcakes for a cause!

On the plus side, the treats are “healthified,” so I do feel that the content is in line with the whole Sometimes Healthy concept.

But, on the other hand, I suppose there’s more to being Sometimes Healthy than eating/baking cupcakes.

Because I’ve been working so much lately, it’s easier for me to write posts that encompass my daily life at work. Thus, Cupcake Monday. I promise you I’m not just baking cupcakes, eating them and sitting on the Couch Monster all day every day. I actually AM doing healthy things 90% of the time…Remember? I also like to run, spin, cook weird things AND go to “unique” fitness classes. I just haven’t been inspired to write about them lately. Stay tuned because I have some good ideas on the horizon…

But until then…

Cupcakes are a Sometimes Healthy Girl’s inspiration.

Especially today.

Cupcake Monday, Bachelorette Parties and Bitter Beer Face

This weekend we celebrated Anjelica’s upcoming wedding with the age-old traditional bachelorette party (You may not think you know Anjelica, but you actually do…she’s the one that always calls first dibs on Cupcake Monday).

We weren't tipsy...yet. But, the camera was. That's why it's blurry. Sorry for partying ;-)

It had everything one would expect out of a quality bachelorette party… Continue Reading →

Eat THIS, Not THAT – The Sometimes Healthy Edition

Yesterday my coworker and I were discussing donuts. She mentioned she needed to bring in some Dunkin Donuts for an early morning meeting, and I mentioned I was planning to bake up some Healthified Blueberry Donuts because I had been dreaming about them in my sleep.

Thus, the idea of serving my office up a special Sometimes Healthy Donut Edition of “Eat This, Not That” was born. (Thanks David Zinczenko from Men’s Health for letting me “borrow” your brilliant concept…PS we work out at the same gym – I always want to talk to you but then I am starstruck by your pure genius.)

Unfortunately, sadly, it appeared most of coworkers preferred…THAT.

Crumbs Cupcake Monday and Healthy Switches

I’m really taking this whole “fly by the seat of your pants” thing seriously!

I heart trains better than planes.

This weekend, I headed an hour north of the city to hang out with a friend and get in a little relaxation time. It was an hour away, but between the spectacular views of the Hudson River and the endless rolling hills, it felt like I was worlds away from the concrete jungle.

During the weekend, I didn’t so much as look at a computer. I barely even picked up my phone! Continue Reading →

Forgive Me Readers, For I Have Sinned

Forgive me readers/friends, for I have sinned.

I've been up to no good!

It’s been 10 days since my last blog post.

And I feel pretty bad about it. I felt so guilty that I had to distract myself with a giant lollipop…

But, please loyal (hopefully) readers, you’ll have to forgive me, as I’ve been a bit busy with work. Oh, and that job of mine forced me to travel across the country and stay at a stunning hotel on the ocean. And then spend a few days in Las Vegas (but we’ll get to that adventure in another post).
