new found hour

I had set aside a bit of time this morning to post a few easy recipes, but something is amiss. Apparently somewhere between gazpacho, the dozen new "rainbow plates" and new food crushes my computer and camera decided they don't want to talk to one another. This tiff has been going on about a week now. So, I am left with fabulous photos stuck on my (banged up, seen several family vacations, birthdays, happy kids and zillions of recipes) camera and one finicky computer. Annoying.

But all is not lost. Well, it sort of is for you guys because I cannot share these recipes with you today. This new found little window of time will allow me to workout in peace while my husband is buying soccer cleats and getting haircuts with the kids.

So, I leave you with this quote from Gwyneth Paltrow, "It's not an accident. It's not luck, it's not fairy dust, it's not good genes. It's killing myself for an hour and a half five days a week, but what I get out of it is relative to what I put into it...The reason that I can be 38 and have two kids and wear a bikini is because I work my ass off."


  1. Eila,
    I found your blog through Shan´s blog and I have to say I am totally in awe of you. You have kids, you cook and you workout to Tracy´s program. i just got so whiny around 20 days in bc I think its so stressful to work out right after I got home from work and then do all the cooking - and I don´t have kids and walk to my office for 10minutes I must confess!

    So keep the good work up, I am going to sneak in more often to find recipes ;)


  2. thank you Martie! it is quite a juggling act. i don't write about the days when i need 26 hours, not 24, to get everything done!! but it's worth it to be present and happier for my family...and feeling healtier, for myself.
