My Running Journey Mile by Mile :)

Well hello there friends! Took last week off for two reasons, the main one being because my work decided to block Google Photos… boooo… and I normally blog at work, haha. The other being that I was busy and just didn’t feel like it. I COULD have done it at home, but just wanted to spend time with Todd and Kara <3 (Warning: lots of Kara pics below. Scroll halfway down for the food, haha) Kara says, YAY mommy! She is just the best these days. So curious and happy. I mean, this is how she wakes up from a […]

Yay Kara

This is going to be an Instagram inspired post… so if you follow me there (and you should šŸ˜‰ this may be redundant, #sorrynotsorry. #LikeABoss… When I run on the treadmill in the mornings, Kara and Todd stop in to say Hello. It absolutely makes my morning, especially when she walks in with that shirt and looks up at me like that. SO Glad Todd captured that moment. Had a pretty great run that morning, too #HisandHersDrinks… I haven’t had a full glass of wine (or any other alcoholic beverage) since BEFORE we started trying to have Kara, so were […]

Like A Boss

This past week was interesting. If you follow me on Instagram (@heatherrunsfast), you’ll know I started running more this past week. I kind of went from 0-60, but eh, whatever, haha. Here’s the rundown- get it šŸ˜‰ Sunday: 4 miles @ 8:35 on the treadmill Monday: 8 miles @ 8:21 pace with Jolene in the AM outside Tuesday: 6 miles @ 8:35 on treadmill Wednesday: 9 miles @ 8:21 on the tread in the AM Thursday: Body Pump!!!! I am SO happy to be back at it. I’ve missed this class so much! Friday: 9 miles @ 8:00 outside in […]

Gasparilla 2017

Every weekend we go over to my parents to hang out. WeĀ LOVE spending time with Nana and Grandpa, and sometimes Aunt Kristin comes, too! Kara always walks over to the backdoor, points outside and says, uhhh uhhh. This past weekend it was raining and she was so pissed she couldn’t go out, haha. The rain did let up though and Kara had fun playing in the puddles! Todd and I got sushi for lunch on Valentines Day so we could have a non-baby date. It was delish, as always. I saw a post on IG for cauliflower rice sushi and […]

Cauliflower Sushi

Kara got her first time out at Daycare last week! She pulled a kids hair in the morning and then did it again in the afternoon. Ana said “NO, Kara!” And Kara started crying. She doesn’t like the word no, haha. So Ana said, “OK, Kara, let’s go to timeout.” And she sat on a little bench. I think it’s hilarious that a one year old is in time out, but it’s never too early to set the ground rules, right? (Random picture of Kara and Nana this weekend :)) I’m taking a little time outĀ from running right now. After […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Halo Top

I apologize in advance for the uber randomness of this post… but I guess most of my posts have been pretty random lately, haha. Enjoy! It’s actually colder in Tampa this week! The overnight lows are in the mid 40’sĀ and I’m loving the chance to dress Kara in some of the cute warmer clothes she has. Nana (my mom) got her the winky kitty sweater <3 It’s our routine to put shoes on in the morning on the first stair. She walks over to it and sits down, haha. Had this cup of cheesiness thisĀ week and it hit the spot. […]

Annies Mac N Cheese

What a beautiful morning! (Picture taken in my neighborhood The most delicious, fudgey, rich, chocolate brownie. The. Best. Ever. Finally tried these- meh. Taste was OK, texture was pretty hard. Not sure if maybe this was old? Still loving all things Pumpkin Spice! I saw Sugar Runs post a photo on Instagram of Turmeric OatsĀ and since I love oats so much, I decided to give it a try (with a few tweaks). I loved it! I stole Kara’s whole milk as the fat source, as that’s needed to help absorb the nutrients from the turmeric. I’m a NUUN Ambassador again! […]

Good Morning
