Recent Meals + I’ve Grown Up So Much


This week is flying by! The weather has been nice which has made for great running weather. I truly love running this time of year and won’t even mind when it gets even hotter! Early sunrises and warm weather are just the best for me as a morning runner. I have a few recent meals […]

Workout Recap + Red Mango


Last week’s workout recap spoke about how I ran five days with higher mileage than usual and now this week, I only have two runs to report. It happened this way for no real reason (well, rainy days added to it!) but I’m hoping to run a bit more again this coming week. Before getting […]

So Many Recent Meals To Share Today (Including Red Mango Parfait!)

I missed last Wednesday’s post about food so for this week, I made sure to capture a few extra meals to share with you. There’s only one slice of pizza in today’s post. The amount of vegetables that they pile on this whole wheat pizza from Monte is beyond believable. You can barely find the whole […]

Friday Favorites (September 20, 2019)

Since I missed Wednesday’s post, I will share a few recent favorite foods in today’s Friday Favorites post. First, though, we are SO CLOSE to hockey season — the offseason really flew by so quickly! We went to the preseason game Tuesday night at the Coliseum. Two weeks and counting until opening night —and my […]

Running Story + Workouts From The Week

I held off sharing my workouts until today because I ran yesterday instead of Saturday. My intention was to run on the treadmill Saturday morning but I woke up completely not in the mood and I certainly wasn’t running outside because it was too cold for me.  Sunday’s forecast was sunny and above freezing < […]

Less Miles + Overly Cautious + Red Mango (workout recap)

  I swear I’m not trying to permanently move my workout recaps to Monday mornings! It’s just working out this way right now! I saved my workout recap for today mostly because I ended up running yesterday instead of Saturday. I never run on Sunday’s which usually makes a Sunday workout recap post possible but […]

Recent Meals + Power Bowls + Food Links Of Interest

  Since I missed a weekend recap on Monday, I have a few meals from the weekend plus what I’ve been eating over the last couple of days to discuss today. This week has been a bit weird so far, by the way. My son came home sick literally 20 minutes after he arrived at […]

  Thursday has become the day that I update you on Heather’s running progress. She completed another 5k race on Sunday and was able to run the whole race! I am so very proud, I told you she was ready to do it! She actually called me after the 2 mile mark during the race […]

Monday In Meals (WIAW 8.9.17)

  Oh, hi. I’ve got my Monday in meals today for What I Ate Wednesday! Breakfast: I woke up tired and starving. Last week’s workouts really amped up my appetite over the last few days! It’s really been a while since I felt that true bottomless pit feeling in my stomach that can come from […]

Food Essentials, Outdoor Dining, Busy Living The Life

  Aside from sharing yesterday’s workout recap and mentioning that my new training plan starts today, I feel like we haven’t really chatted in a few days! It felt so good to finally go food shopping. I rushed out the door the other morning to Trader Joe’s to restock the house with some food essentials. […]

Busy June Weekend Recap

    June weekends are always busy weekends. It started Friday night with pizza from Stella’s. My son had an all day carnival type thing outside at school as a party celebration for the 8th graders. He was full of sun and clearly tired when I picked him up from school. After forcing him immediately into […]

Letting Go Of Caring About Food

  I had this Red Mango parfait on Saturday. Can you tell that the Red Mango man made it all wrong? There is a certain system to making the mixed berry parfait which I learned years ago from the Red Mango people! On the bottom: strawberries Then frozen yogurt In the middle: strawberries, blueberries, pumpkin […]
