It’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve blogged and I blame it on Irma! Last week started with the hurricane, which came in Sunday night into Monday. I’ll do a whole separate post on that, but it affected a lot. Luckily, we didn’t have any damage, but a lot of people lost power, including our work. We got a text Monday that work would resume Wednesday.ย We got in on Wednesday and after an hour were told to go home because the AC wasn’t working and we were still on a generator. Great. We picked up Kara and went home ๐Ÿ™‚ […]

Good Morning! Happy Belated Father’s Day to any dad’s who read the blog (I’m guessing it’s only Todd and my dad, haha). We celebrated with having everyone over, spending quality time together and eating! For dinner we had steak, baked potatoes and broccoli. And for dessert, of course we had a huge delicious cake. If you haven’t noticed, it’s our family’s tradition ๐Ÿ™‚ My dad and Todd both like chocolate cake with chocolate peanut butter frosting, so that’s what my mom made. It was delicious. I have to say, I am only lucky girl! I have the best dad in […]

Hey hey! Last week was pretty boring and the weekend was super low key, so I’m going to combine some weekend fun with some Instagram fun! (@heatherrunsfast) Let’s get to it! We hit the pool up again. It’s been raining here every day, which means cold pool water. We went to a friends pool that’s heated and while it was still cooler, it was much more tolerable! I woke up with Kara Sunday morning and she kept pointing to the peanut butter. We get it fresh ground from Publix. So it’s just peanuts ๐Ÿ™‚ She’d stick the spoon in, take […]

I’ve tried some new and tried and true things lately and figured I’d share them with you! Western Bagelsย = 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 MONDAY!!! Not sure why I’m in such a good mood. Maybe it’s looking through my pictures and seeing allย the pictures of Kara <3 There are SO MANY! OK- Onto the recap of last week… Give this girl a bag (or a cup or a water bottle or anything crinkly) and she’s set for a drive. I bought some Halo and when I opened it it was only a 1/2 to 2/3 full. I. was. pissed. I don’t mind paying for it (even thought it’s a wee bit expensive), but I DO mind if I don’t get a full product. […]

This is going to be an Instagram inspired post… so if you follow me there (and you should ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ #HisandHersDrinks… I haven’t had a full glass of wine (or any other alcoholic beverage) since BEFORE we started trying to have Kara, so […]

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 […]

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 outย from running right now. After […]

Disney Marathon Weekend was just that… Saturday to Sunday. Wham Bam thank you ma’am! I picked Jolene up around 10:30 after we both got to spend time with our families before we left for the short weekend. We made the hour and 15 min drive to the ESPN Wide World of Sports in the cold, windy, rain to pick up our bibs. I had shirts made for us with our “mantras” for the race and instagram handles on the back. I think they came out pretty cute ๐Ÿ™‚ We wore them Saturday and Sunday after the race, along with our […]

Ya ya, while everyone else is showing pictures of their Christmas decorated house/tree I’m still talking about Thanksgiving over here… and of course running ๐Ÿ™‚ Last week was busy, but I loved every second of it. I worked Monday and Tuesday and was lucky enough to work from home Wednesday so I could get some stuff done around the house. I had two great 8 mile runs with Jolene (Wed- 7:54 pace/ Fri- 7:55 pace) and a decent mid week speed sesh on Thursday… This was actually a really tough run. I ended up doing the last 1.5 miles in […]
