Stupid Heel, Pre-Breakfast, Core, Bulls Eye

Happy Friday! Today I present to you some of my favorites, and not so favorites, of the week. Let’s start with the bad and end with the good… Before Gasparilla, I broke in a new pair of shoes for the race. Granted, I only put 10 miles on them, but they are the same shoes I’ve worn for years and have never had a problem. Not sure if it’s the shoes or something else, but ever since the race, my left heel has been bothering me. It doesn’t hurt when I’m barefoot or in sandals, but even just walking around […]

Unconventional WIAW

It’s questionable whether or not a WIAW link up will be posted today, but in the spirit of the food party, I figured I’d do an unconventional WIAW with some random eats and treats. Let’s start out with Sunday Family dinner at my parents. This was similar to a dinner a few weeks ago, but it’s baked chicken, green beans and roasted cabbage, onions and carrots. Found these little munchkins on sale at Publix. SUPER good. And addicting. I like the chocolate to filling ratio in bite sized candies. My poor little dogter has been sick šŸ™ She woke up […]

Gasparilla 15k & 5k Recap

Let’s start this recap off with the expo Friday. I was able to leave work early and meet up with Mary and Grant (her adorbs 11.5 month old). It was great seeing her. Just as Grant was getting fussy, Stephanie arrived and we made our way around the expo, grabbing free samples and talking about race paces. See all the white on the walk behind us? Those are the names of all the runners! I’m on there twice because I’m double awesome. Just kidding. Kind of šŸ˜‰ After the expo, I headed home to walk Riley, start dinner and go […]

Friday Favorties

Here’s another edition of Friday Favorites šŸ™‚ Coworkers Birthdays. This brownie was BEYOND delicious. Super rich and fudgey and decadent. Stop the stink! TheĀ Running Times article, foundĀ HERE, gives aĀ step-by-step approach for laundering technical clothing: Allow items to air-dry after you run in them, rather than tossing damp clothing directly into a hamper. Turn garments inside out for washing and drying. Use cold water in the wash cycle. Dry clothes on low heat to save the elastic. Hotter temperatures will shorten the life of your gear. Use less detergent in the washing machine to prevent it from building up on tech […]

*What I Ate Wednesday*

The break of the fast…Ā Nothing unusual here. 2% Fage Greek yogurt mixed with pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Sometimes I throw it in the break room freezer right when I get in, so by the time I check e-mails and grab a cup of coffee, it’s slightly frozen around the edges šŸ™‚ Zoatmeal, also with pumpkin and PPS, eaten at work. Obviously pumpkin isn’t only a fall thing in our household. All year long baby. My Morning Medicine… Coffee made withĀ Hot Cocoa instead of creamerĀ and topped with marshmallows. I’m a regular barista over here šŸ˜‰ Obviously followed by some water! […]

Friday the 13th Favorites

Guess I didn’t need to tell you the date, but since it’s Friday the 13th, I couldn’t resist. And actually, scary movies are NOT one of my favorite things, so let’s get to it… My sister.Ā She left this note on my car during Body Pump (she was getting out of spinning) and it made my day! My mom.Ā Because of her, I STILL have yet to wear the same thing to work twice and I’ve been there about 4 months! This couch is full every week with her clothes. I exchange them out on Sunday’s during family dinner. Silk’s new Cashew […]

WIAW: My Last Package

Happy Hump Day! Let’s celebrate by looking at pictures of food! PS There ended up being more links in this post than I imagined. They just go to explanations of whatever is linked, so feel free to explore my past šŸ™‚ I’m trying the wholeĀ apple ciderĀ vinegarĀ thing in the mornings and it’s rough. Handful of blueberriesĀ before I head to work. Still going strong with my half bottle of water perĀ cup of coffee, thing. Like that mug? I made it myself šŸ™‚ The day’s yogurt:Ā 2% Fage Greek Yogurt with my mom’s homemade cranberry relish from Christmas. Mixed at home, eaten at work. […]

Saturday and Sunday Sentences

Saturday I love Body Pump. We stop at everything that could be hiding a lizard. Finally got my hair did. Got hungry on the way home from Trader Joe’s and busted into an avocado with a plastic spoon. Riley stared me down for 5 minutes (no joke, she sat there just.like.that) because I was withholding a treat from her. Sunday The best run. OK, this needs more than one sentence. I seriously had the best run I’ve had in a long time. I met up with a new friend, Stephanie, for 7 miles and it was like we were old […]

Broth Bowl, A Fave Outfit, A Dog & Some Nuun

From the website: Panera Bread’sĀ Soba Noodle Bowl with Chicken… “Chicken raised without antibiotics, soba buckwheat noodles, fresh spinach, napa cabbage blend, roasted mushroom and onion blend, sesame seeds and cilantro in our umami soy-miso broth.” The broth bowl was pretty good. I kind of expected more broth. It was pretty rich (meaning salty) and yummy, but not uber delicious. The buckwheat noodles were fun and a good switch up from normal noodles. I could see how the grayish color of them might be off putting to some people, but you know that ish doesn’t bother me šŸ™‚ The chicken taste […]
