october :)

via squidoo

Happy October! I wish Boston looked like this right now. I love love love the fall (as I’ve mentioned before) so I’m going to soak up as much of it as I possibly can.

Goals for October –

1. 10K in under 60 minutes – I’m running 2 this month. Under an hour should be do-able, but I’ve never run a 10K so we’ll see

2. sleep – sept was a bit crazy but I think I can get back in a routine & be better about getting 8 hours.

3. make cider – it hasn’t been cold enough yet but cider is one of my favorite things about fall. soon 🙂

4. break out the crock pot – I’ve used it a few times but really should be more often.

5. make something with pumpkin – I haven’t since the spring, so I’m definitely overdue

Pats are playing this afternoon! I’m heading to watch the game with Sara & Eric, in one of my fave fall outfits. ( leggings & boots)

hope you’re all having a great weekend.

september summer.

I got up this morning to do an 8 miler. Its the end of September right? I don’t have to get up early to beat the sun, heat, etc. uhh. not exactly. I headed out around 11 and it was definitely summer out.  So it wasn’t 80 but still.. it was hot.

It looked like fall but it sure doesn’t feel like  it. I cursed myself a bit for not going earlier but really.. running in the 70s can only help me be faster in cooler temps, right?


recap on my goals for September –

1. yoga once a week –  remember when I said “this month I will do it. Its on my calendar for twice a week, so I have ZERO excuses not to accomplish this”  FAIL. I didn’t go even once.  its time to retire yoga from the goals. maybe it’ll actually happen if I don’t speak of it?!

2. stay in Boston (post labor day) – Pretty much. I ran off to NY for 1 weekend night, because well really I missed my friends. Otherwise, I was here, hanging out, doing Boston-y things.

3. farmer’s market – lame. I didn’t even try.

4. sleep more – HA.  again Fail. I probably slept less this month than well.. ever. bad plan alli, bad plan.

5. watch football  – this I did. go me.  I even managed a baseball game too. sweeet.


September wasn’t awesome, but it was good.   I have a feeling October is going to be great 🙂


how was everyone else’s September?

sept. fall. excited.

First – The Return of the Smoothie

I hate to admit, but I got all excited, bought tons of frozen fruit, and immediately got bored with smoothies, mainly because I make the same one all the time.

This morning it needed to happen. I even looked up a recipe for inspiration but only half followed it.

1 cup almond milk, frozen strawberries, frozen blueberries, unsweetened shredded coconut &  then I found this!  more HLS swag.



Tonight, I went for a slow 3 miles. My legs were pretty tired from yesterday.  So I ran and watched all the people strolling around. There was a ton of people out doing yoga on the Esplanade.  I always forget that there is free stuff happening around town. I ran by the Orchestra at the Hatch Shell too. (not that I like the orchestra, but it looks like cute scene)


Goals for September

1. yoga once a week – this month I will do it. Its on my calendar for twice a week, so I have ZERO excuses not to accomplish this.

2. stay in Boston (post labor day) – since June, I’ve been in Boston 2 weekends. not ideal.

3. farmer’s market – there are a bunch of these around and I’m never here to go to them. They’re such a great scene.

4. sleep more – I used to be pretty good at getting around 8 hours a night. Lately, its been more like 6-7 and I can feel the difference.

5. watch football  – this shouldn’t be that hard.


Fall in New England is going to be beautiful

I love the in-between weather with boots & sweaters.

I can stop buying white wine until next summer. Bring on the red 🙂

Running without the heat is going to be amazinggg

I love the excitement about football & sundays.

(I’ll just pretend it has nothing to do with the arrival of winter.)

I’m really excited for fall.


what are you favorite things about fall? or are you dreading it?
