Nuun

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 […]

Egg Retrieval

A Little Late… Week In Review

Monday: I usually take Monday as a rest day, but due to doctors appointments and work obligations, I had to change some runs around. Since I’d had a long run the day before, I kept it easy, with my hear rate low. Seems like a long time ago now, but last Monday was the Solar Eclipse. At daycare, Kara did some crafting and at work I planned an ice cream viewing party for our 550 employees. It was a hit! Kara has started loving to put her hair in a pony tail and is still loving all the food, haha. […]

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 […]

Western Bagel with Shmere

My running game has been strong this past week and I’ve run almost every day <3 I had to take a little over 3 weeks off and I was surprised at how quickly my paces bounced back. It is H.O.T.T. hott here in Florida and I definitely haven’t adjusted to running in it. Per usual, I’ve been loading up on Nuun and that has definitely helped. Todd was out of town last Sunday evening to late Wednesday night, so I had to get creative to fit my runs in. Getting up at 4AM to run, shower, get ready, get Kara ready, […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

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… I […]

Western Bagels

HAPPY MONDAY!!! Not sure why I’m in such a good mood. Maybe it’s looking through my pictures and seeing all 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.
