I'm back in the saddle! Last week was a "no pressure" workout week, but this week will have an actual agenda and oh, am I going to follow it! I will walk, run, ride, dance, prance, and stretch. (Yes, I said prance). EACH OF THESE TWICE: 2 Mile Walk on the Sand 3 Mile Run … Continue reading Workout Week – August 21st
I took my first ride on a road bike on July 2nd, which was exactly seven weeks ago. I was rather wobbly, unsteady, and hesitant (you can read about that whole experience here). Since then, I have gotten so much more comfortable with and on my road bike. My tush doesn't hurt anymore thanks to … Continue reading I Might Be a Cyclist
This has been a summer of smoothie fun. My hubby and I got a Ninja individual smoothie blender a few months ago and it has changed our lives (well, mine anyway). The blender we had previously was such a tedious beast to use. It would get stuck on the smallest piece of fruit and would need … Continue reading Smoothie-licious!
I realize that it is August 17th as I write my workout week plans for August 14th ... That is because I decided not to have any workout plans this week. Essentially, this post is about my plan to have no plan. I was on vacation with my husband and my parents last week, which … Continue reading Workout Week – August 14th
One of the perks of the resort where I am is that they have activities that anyone staying here can partake in. So my crafty mom and I read the activity list and discovered a session on learning how to make a dream catcher. Neither of us had made one before, and had always wanted to. It is … Continue reading Vacay Crafts – Dream Chime

EACH OF THESE ONCE: Yoga class at the local studio 8 mile stationary … Continue reading Workout Week – August 7th
This past week I finally strapped on the ballet slippers and got my plié on. AND I conquered my first trail ride on my road bike! I was definitely hesitant at first - but after we hit the halfway point and turned around to go back, I let myself chill out and actually enjoyed hitting … Continue reading Workout Week – July 31st
The name of this site is Very Small Bites. In case you haven't yet read my "About" page, basically this blog is a place for me to explore the concept of enjoying more flavors of life by redistributing my time and taking smaller bites of multiple things. Small bites enable me to experience more. But sometimes, … Continue reading A Big Bite of the Big Apple
We just returned from NYC (which I will tell you all about in a new adventure post - coming soon!), so my second run and second walk were replaced with walks through the city and ambles through Central Park. This week, I'm going to shake things up a bit. I'm going to take a ballet … Continue reading Workout Week – July 24th
I am in no sense of the word a gardener. Until recently, my track record with plants in general has not been a good one. Most of the house plants I've owned have shrunken into a sadly withered mess, and many of the flowers I've attempted to grow on the patio have either fried in … Continue reading We Actually Have Veggies!
