Cleaning up the Google Reader

8 Mar

Today I decided to clean up my Google Reader.  Over the past year, my GR has gotten out of control!  Every time I would log in, I was overwhelmed with 500 new blog posts.  I didn’t know where to start so I never read from it.  I decided to clean it up after a lot of blogs I used to read daily didn’t interest me anymore and a lot of new blogs I currently read weren’t added into it yet.  So far, I have gotten rid of about 25-40 blogs and it feels so liberating!  It’s amazing how many blogs get added over the course of months!  I really wish I had the time to read all the blogs I love everyday (since there are so many fabulous blog writers out there), but it was time to do the deed.  Out with the old and in with the new!  I love signing in now and seeing all my blog friends posts instead of just random ones I didn’t care about!  If you are new to  my blog or have a blog of your own you would like me to check out, leave a comment with your blog’s web address!  I love finding new great blogs!

Any who on to other things….This weekend the Husband and I are going to Vegas with another couple!  I.  Can’t.  Wait.

I will miss this little bugger like crazy!


I can’t believe he used to be smaller than my purse!

But, he will be in good hands with our house sitter!

Today’s workout was shoulders and triceps.  I should mention that I can hardly sit since my hamstrings are so sore from yesterday’s workout, which I didn’t think was very hard while I was doing it.  Holy hamstrings! 

Eats of the day

  • Breakfast (7:00am)-  hot lemon water, 1/2 cup of coffee and an egg wrap


  • Am Snack (11:00am)-  organic pink lady apple and a handful of walnuts and almonds
  • Lunch (1:00pm)-  Ezekiel pita with hummus


  • PM Snack- (3:15pm)- flaxseed and chia seed drink with cranberry water
  • Dinner- tilapia and spicy broccoli

Dinner was nutrient rich and healthy!  A win win in my book!


Question:  Is anyone else going to be in Vegas this upcoming week?  Any recommendations on what to do or see while we are there?

And don’t forget to leave your blog URL so I can check it out!  : )

    Oh Vegas — such good times to be had! There was actually really great music at The Rok, but it’s pretty clubby. Have fun!

    Oh man, my google reader gets out of control now and then too. But I try to regularly weed out ones I don’t read often and only focus on the ones that I’ve grown to love so much. It’s so hard though, I keep finding new ones to start following! Ack! 😉

    I LOVE Las Vegas! We go there often. I love the drinks (martinis/cosmopolitans) at Olives at the Bellagio. Great people watching at Mon Ami Gabi. And for dinners: SW or Bartalotto at the Wynn, Botero at the Encore. Yum!

    I’m a very beginner run & just started blogging.

    Hope your trip is fabulous!
