random groceries & protein blondies recipe

dairy free gluten free chocolate chip coconut protein blondies

  I would love to show you a picture from kickboxing yesterday morning (it was so fun!) but I finally upgraded my iPhone over the weekend and lost a couple of photos in the process. The whole phone transfer thing is never a smooth process for me which is why I put it off as long as possible! It’s a […]

Kiss My Face Soap and Coconut Oil Hair Mask

coconut oil and honey

My son’s iPhone stopped working because it was thrown into the pool at a pool party on Sunday. No wait- it fell in by accident. No wait- my son jumped into the pool by accident with his iphone in his bathing suit pocket. Regardless of which version of the story he tells me, the iphone doesn’t […]

Today’s Long Run And The Fitfriend App

39 degrees with sunshine this morning certainly made 13.1 miles comfortable and almost summer-like.   I had my usual long run partners with me: The worst part about my run today was dropping my last jelly bean. I never sweat the small stuff but I will admit losing the last bean bothered me more than […]

Things That Make Me Happy

I have been drinking a lot of tea lately. No no,  don’t be silly, just because I am drinking a lot of tea does not mean I stopped drinking a lot of coffee. In fact, when I work from Panera I drink more than a lot of coffee. I am a sucker for free refills. […]

Three Tip Tuesday- UNPLUG FROM YOUR SMART PHONES

I walked out of my house  yesterday morning with the intention of running on the treadmill but changed my mind immediately once I realized it was not cold, not raining and not windy. What kind of fool elects to run indoors on a treadmill when they can easily run outside? So what if my usual […]

The Important Stuff- Run, Food and Emojis

Good Monday morning! I know you have been patiently waiting to hear how many miles I ran on Saturday. I wish I could tell you exactly. But I can’t. While my run was divine, at some point around the 7 mile mark I accidentally hit pause on my phone which froze MapMyRun for easily half a […]

Too Plugged In…

It is a good thing the school year is just about over. This folder may not look like it is in bad shape to you, but the fact that it is the 7th one I have bought for this school year and it is already torn in several spots, I know we are reaching the end of […]

Blizzard Schmizzard

I am ready for summer. Or even spring. Or simply a friendly winter which means no snow and  temperatures above 32 degrees. No such luck. Blizzard warning in effect through Saturday. Saturday morning is designated as my long run morning. A blizzard may throw a wrench in my routine for this weekend. Hmm. Good thing […]

Running to the Beat of my Feet

Today started out nicely. I was up early, got a list of things accomplished well before the little boy was up and well before the phone starts ringing to interrupt me. I was packed for the gym and ready to go for the day before even putting him on the bus. I even prepared my […]
