WIAW- Why Are Blueberries So Expensive?

  Oh hello. It’s raining. And pouring. Thankfully, no one around my house is snoring. I have no patience for such a sound. Let’s take a look at what I have been eating this week. I changed up the usual format to keep things interesting… Breakfast Lately:   Important things to note: *I am still on […]

WIAW – Lots of Watermelon And My New Favorite Lunch

When I planned out my runs for this week, I didn’t bother to look at the weather forecast. I whimpered my way to the gym yesterday morning in a thunderstorm to get my run accomplished on the treadmill. I talked a good game all winter as if I found love with the treadmill but I think it […]

WIAW – PB2 And Other Running Favorite Foods

  I love that it is Wednesday already! After yesterday’s post, I really want to start touching upon the factors which played a major role in helping me become the runner I am today. One important place to start is food. Eating certain foods (especially at certain times) can make a world of difference in how […]

WIAW – Still Have A Thing For Oatmeal

  I would tell you all about the six miles I ran on the treadmill yesterday but today is Wednesday and that means we talk food. Did you celebrate National Pancake Day yesterday? I much prefer oatmeal over pancakes but the other morning I randomly decided to go back to my two-ingredient pancake (well, really three ingredient since I added […]

My Kind Of Plant-Based Power Bowl

  I did a terrible thing Friday night and I hope you will forgive me. I enjoyed a slice of chocolate cake. The Cheesecake Factory’s Chocolate Tower Cake to be specific. I even shared it. The terrible part isn’t that I shared the cake (I did so willingly), it’s that I didn’t get a picture of it […]

WIAW- Don’t Let Me Down And Red Mango At Home

  I don’t know what it up with the stars this week but it seems every day I have a quotable phrase to share from my horoscope: “The best way to avoid disappointment is to lower your expectations.” While this may be great advice, it does not hold true for all situations, especially at meal […]

Venting On The Treadmill

  The best part about working from Panera Bread for a few hours is the free refills on coffee. I didn’t even need the coffee yesterday though because I was totally riding the runner’s high I achieved from six seriously fabulous and speedy treadmill miles. I decided that if I just keep sharing with you […]

What I Ate Wednesday – More Carbs Please

  I am not ready for winter. Or the snow that comes along with winter. Or the running inside that has to occur due to the ice which forms on my routine running path that follows the snow in winter. Lucky for me, and for everyone who interacted with me yesterday, I squeezed in a 6 mile run […]

Three Tip Tuesday – My GapFit Pants Didn’t Fall Down!

  Catchy title for a post, yes? Well, when you run in pants that don’t fall down, it is something to get excited about. Yesterday morning was freezing. Actually it was below freezing. Quite a few degrees below freezing. I layered myself all up: Lulu tank Lulu Run Swiftly long sleeve GapFit half zip with […]

Quick Hello and Peanut Butter Cookies

Notice anything different? The site is still a work in progress but it is slowly coming together. Please bear with me if you experience any glitches – I am so not patient when it comes to computers nor am I close to even being considered tech savvy… but I am learning. I also have no patience with the […]

Happy Meals

I have big plans for this last day of July. That’s right. I intend to bless Lifetime Fitness with my presence this morning. I decided I might as well live it up on this July 31st because as of tomorrow, August 1st, my membership is officially frozen. I may take a spin class or a kickboxing class […]
