Coffee

Happy Monday everyone! Can you believe it will be Christmas this time next week?! I had a pretty great week last week that included two days of vacation from work, a lot of running, so much yummy food and of course, time with family. Sorry if you follow me on Instagram and have seen all of these pictures… I still like to put them on the blog and think that some people don’t use IG. Anyway, here’s my week in collages! Monday: One of my two days of vacation this week! It was really cold (for Florida) so I slept […]

To start this off on a somewhat random note: at my work, you can only roll over so many weeks of vacation. For maternity leave, if you want to get paid a full paycheck the whole time your off, you have to supplement with your vacation and sick time (and even then it’s not going to last you 3 months). That being said, we 100% believed I’d be pregnant and giving birth before the end of this year (HA!) so I saved it all. To be honest, at some point, we just forgot about it. Well, there I was, with […]

Happy Tuesday! I know I normally post on Monday’s, but I took the day off of work to spend some extra time with Kara and my parents, so I’m posting today. NBD. I feel like I have a lot to “tell” so I’m going to try and keep it to two sentences per picture using collages! I had a great balance of “faster” and easy runs this past week, along with two Body Pump classes! I’m surprisingly not as sore as I thought I’d be and sad my running/exercise has to come to an end again, but know it will […]

Last week was my last few days of running, my birthday and my egg retrieval for IVF. I must say, that all that made for a pretty eventful week, one way or another! I took Monday as a rest day after my 16 miler and did an easy 6 miles on the treadmill Tuesday. I still had a bit of my birthday cake left over and had it as a pre-breakfast with my Nuun… no shame! Wednesday was officially my last day of running until hopefully after I find out I’m pregnant! I was so happy to get some miles in […]

Happy Monday folks! Kara’s daycare was close last Monday, so I had the privilege of staying home with her <3 I still got up extra early so I could get a run in (a not too shabby run if you ask me!) and enjoy every second with her. We had pumpkin zoatmeal for breakfast, went to the park and split an ice cream bar to cool down. Look at those red cheeks!!! Kara is all about reading, so you better believe we spent a good amount of time in her room going through books. Brown Bear Brown Bear is one […]

I thought it would be fun to do a WIAW about my food and routine on a work day when I’m running. So here it goes… Wake up at early-o’clock! Depending on my run, I’ll either drink Nuun or Amino Energy or both, while I foam roll. After sleeping all night, my legs are tight and need a little warming up before I start working them. I save the BCAA’s for after a run. Start running! I either hop on the treadmill or meet Jolene to run outside. During the week I keep my runs to 6-8 miles and vary […]

I’ve tried some new and tried and true things lately and figured I’d share them with you! Western Bagels = awesome. That pretty much sums it up. They taste great, have great macros/calories and are a good size- similar to a Lender’s bagel in size, only denser 🙂 The Perfect 10 bagels have 150-160 cals, 18-21g carbs and 19g protein… you can’t beat that! Ideal Fit Protein: I don’t drink a ton of protein shakes anymore, but decided to give this brand/flavor a try after seeing it on IG and hearing Amber rave about it so much. Let me just say… […]

Happy Friday Folks! I survived my first week back to work and am lucky enough to have worked from home two days this week- woo hoo! Magic Mugs. I bought a Groupon to make these fun mugs and gave one to my sister. They turn from a completely black mug to a picture when you add hot water. I put a collage of Kara’s Valentines Day pictures on mine. I loved getting a text from my sister of her mug- her, Kara and I at my baby shower turned baby debut when Kara was 3 days old. Tuesday, March 8. […]

I figured it was about time I shared with you some of the fun pumpkin things I’ve tried over the past month or so… Most of them are indulgent so, I’m linking up for Treat Yourself Tuesday. My mom bought the Pepperidge Farm Pumpkin Spice Bread. Ummm yes. I enjoyed it toasted with butter, straight out of the package and as french toast. I made GiGi’s Pumpkin Spice Latte and it was SO GOOD! Highly recommend her recipe 🙂 The Planters Pumpkin Spice Almonds are AWESOME! Great flavor and not too sweet. Delicious and highly addictive- you’ve been warned! I tried […]

What A Week

Hello there Ladies and Gents! I had a super busy, good then bad week. It started off pretty good when I finally found the Pecan Pie M&M’s. Usually Target has the specialty flavors, but theses were a Wal-Mart exclusive- a store I’m not a fan of. I had been on the hunt for them, stopping in once a week to check the candy sections and I finally found them!  I was a little disappointed that they were milk chocolate. I was hoping they’d be white chocolate like the Candy Corn ones were. There was a hint of pecan but the chocolate definitely […]
