WIAW – Black Bean Pasta, Mets Game & Chipwiches


  Oh hi! I think my site is working correctly now! My plug-in’s are back and Dreamhost thinks that they found the plug-in that was causing all of the problems. There’s still some other nonsense about my site spiking and taking up too much space on servers but I am going to pretend I didn’t hear […]

Cravings, Chopt & Out of Apples! (WIAW)

  Just a quick note before we get to the food today — there may be some issues with my site over the next few days. I didn’t notice anything weird but Dreamhost emailed me to tell me things are weird and that my plug-ins have all been disabled to determine the problem. What problem?! I don’t see […]

What I Ate Wednesday June 1, 2016

salad-with tahini

Oh hi June 1st, so nice to see you. 🙂 I have always loved the start of June. Mainly because my birthday is approaching but also because the weather is so nice, school is coming to an end and camp time is only a few weeks away. I can’t tell you how happy I am each […]

  Before we get to what I ate yesterday… What I Ate Wednesday posts are just here to showcase what others eat and perhaps give you some new ideas when it comes to your own meals. The important thing to remember though is that you must do what works for you, not what works for […]

Cheesecake Factory BBQ Ranch Salad

  Good morning! I am all cheery today because my son is off from school the rest of the week (another spring break) so we are in no rush to get out the door. Yesterday was my last serious run before Sunday’s race so I will head out at my leisure this morning to run just […]

  I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s guest post regarding tune up races. Laura really is the greatest for explaining the running stuff. If you don’t already read Laura’s blog, she actually shared a wonderful post last week about how she is making sure she eats enough during her marathon training. I think this is why I love her […]

Cereal Milk Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

  I made you cookies. I mean breakfast. I mean breakfast cookies. Oatmeal breakfast cookies. Oatmeal cookies made with cereal milk so we will just call them cereal milk oatmeal breakfast cookies! I have been wanting to create cookies using cereal milk for a while now but didn’t get around to it until a few days ago. What […]

what I ate wednesday

I have to say – having your race entry determined by a random drawing certainly ups the excitement! I don’t think I ever logged into my bank account (to see if I was charged for the race registration) so many times in one day, or even, one year. I am surprised the bank didn’t call to question […]

What I Ate Wednesday

Before we get to the What I Ate Wednesday food fun, I wanted to thank you for your kind comments and emails regarding yesterday’s post. I know we all go through different experiences in life so I hope that by sharing a bit of my own stuff, I can help someone else, even if the situation […]

Kid Approved Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pancakes

I don’t know who I think I am posting not only one recipe this week but two, two days in a row but these peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes really couldn’t wait. My son requested pancakes for breakfast Saturday morning and after a lengthy recipe discussion, these peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes were born. I […]

  In my blogger brain, Wednesday = Food. I am skipping the What I Ate Wednesday fun though in favor of showing you more than just one day of what I have been eating. Breakfasts: I have been hooked on the blueberry pie protein oatmeal with a scoop of peanut butter on top…. Yet at the same […]

Peak in the life of a Long Run

peak in the life of a long run

  Earlier this year I shared a peak in the life of a treadmill long run post. The point of that post was to give you some insight as to how I go about positively preparing for and running long on the treadmill. Staying positive and mentally tough is necessary for all runs though and is just […]
