I’m not making any promises to bring back my old Thursday Thoughts feature regularly but I had some thoughts, it’s thursday, so why not? :)
The first thing I need to address is this SNOW. I’m sorry if it seems to be dominating my blog lately but we got dumped on twice within the last week totaling about 4 feet. I’ve lived outside of Baltimore for 10 years now and have never seen this much snow here. Heck, I grew up in North Eastern PA and don’t remember ever seeing this much snow, ever. This is what the toddler and I woke up to this morning. . .
After the first storm I had fun taking a couple panoramic shots. This morning I took one more from the street in front of my house. Click here to see what my neighborhood looked like the day after the storm. I much rather summer then winter but I have to admit, it sure is pretty.
The second thing I need to mention is my Skinny Scoopers Podcast. Chris & Lisa interviewed me a few weeks ago and posted the podcast on thier site this week. I totally forgot to mention it the other day.
Third, I’ve been working my a$$ off on FitBloggin’! I hope to have a few new fun announcements soon and I just posted about a run post conference that those who are local may be interested in. Click here to check out the details.
Fourth, I got a little distracted this evening by Jaime Oliver‘s talk of Ted. Besides his mesmerizing accent and boyish good looks :) I love what he has to say. I share his passion to teach kids about food and inspiring families to cook together. That is exactly what I try to do with GreenLiteBites. Here’s his recent TED Talk. . .
Fifth, my food journal. Yesterday I went a little nuts. I ate out of boredom. I ate in a fit of funk. I even avoided my food journal. Then I realized what I was doing and committed to the journal today. That always gets me motivated again. :)

Sixth, I almost forgot! My February race was cancelled do to all the snow. I am not backing down from my 2010 running goals so I’m the hunt for a new race before the end of the month. I’ll keep you posted. :)
