A Coffee Date With Moi

Untitled design (13)

I havenโ€™tย done a personal post in a while, so I thought Iโ€™d have a little coffee date with you and a few other bloggers to bring you up to speed with life on the not-so-wild-side ๐Ÿ™‚

Travel – Hubby & I went up to the bay area last weekend for 3 amazing days of friends, food and fun. We were there for a wedding and rented the sweetest apartment in the Marina. It makes me long to be back there permanently, but Iโ€™ll take what I can get. Fortunately, Iโ€™m flying back there next weekend just to see a friend flying in from Australia, just for the day. Sheโ€™s one of those people that cracks me up with her bizarre sense of humor and perspective on life. CAN.NOT.WAIT.

Work – I have to say, Iโ€™m blown away by the support Iโ€™ve received by other healthy living bloggers. The generosity of time and interest to promote and review ProCakes has just been so touching. I freakin love bloggers and now itโ€™s my JOB to work with them on the regular. Thatโ€™s one of the coolest parts of what I do.

Fitness – As Iโ€™ve mentioned a few times, Iโ€™m training for another competition in late August. I have to admit Iโ€™m having a hard time focusing on diet adjustments. Honestly, Iโ€™ve worked so hard to get to a place where I can live and enjoy life and not worry about food, and how much Iโ€™m eating. The idea of getting maniacal about it again doesnโ€™t excite me. This doesnโ€™t bode well for being stage ready in 11 weeks.

Reads & Listens – I just finished A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. Iโ€™ll be honest, I tried this book several years ago and it went right over my head. This time around, I found that some partโ€™s spoke to me, but the rest of it was too woo-woo. Perhaps Iโ€™m not spiritually evolved enough? Most of the Audiobooks Iโ€™ve listened to have been business related, but my favorite podcasts right now are Lady business, The Bulletproof Executive and The Fat Burning Man. Love them all.

New stuff – Iโ€™ve been making more of an effort to do new stuff or at least push myself out of my comfort zone on the regular. To that extent, I made a date to go SUP with a total stranger today and left the experience with a new friend. That takes a lot for me to do, so Iโ€™m pretty proud of myself. Now Iโ€™ve got all this podcasting technology sitting on my desk waiting to be set up. If I could get up the nerve to crack that nut, Iโ€™d be happy!

June Goals – Get on with the podcasting already!

What’s going on with you guys! ย I know you’re out there ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I’d love to hear from some of you and know what’s going on in your world.

I think you'd love this post, too....


  1. You’ve been up in my territory. ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, I don’t live in SF, but I do live in the Bay Area. Good for you for getting out of your comfort zone! Was that your first time paddle boarding or was it doing it with a stranger that was the new part?

    1. I used to live up in the bay area – san carlos and mountain view. I miss it SO much!!! I’ve paddled before (only once), but my partner was brand new ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I would have loved to have coffee with you this past weekend. Damn double booking.

    Podcasting. Get outta here. I can’t wait to listen. Get on it already. It’s not like you’ve been busy or anything. ๐Ÿ˜‰
