Eat 12/19/2008

I was working from home and got hungry around 10:30am, I figured a snack wouldn't be bad because I was going to yoga at noon and would have a  late lunch. So, I had some almonds because they were right in front of me.Then I got some pretzels with nutella...and 2 crackers with a piece of provolone and salami. This is out of character for me, but for some reason it sounded very … [Read more...]

Natalie Dee "gets" me

How, despite the fact that I have a super obsessive blog where I talk about everything I eat, am I still gaining weight? Natalie Dee does not have the answers, but she does make me laugh... … [Read more...]

Eat I 12/19/2008

Happy Friday everyone! I have some time this morning, so I thought I would post breakie. I want to get myself on a better posting schedule. Right now I feel like I post things so after the fact that it's pointless, you know? I am going to start posting my daily at the end of the night. This will mean my East Coast readers will actually have something to read the next day since … [Read more...]

No Run 12/19/2008

Today is a rest day - I am planning on going to yoga on my lunch with my new mat!!! Woo-woo. I used to just use the mats the studio has there, but I don't really like to. If I have to smell anyone's feet during yoga it should be my own.I have been dying to go to yoga for a month now and just haven't had the time. Let's hope I can make it and nothing comes up in the last … [Read more...]

Eat 12/18/2008

I am blogging on the BF's computer today and for some reason it is being weird with me, so I apologize if this post looks jacked up. I started my day with my fave oatmeal. Lunch was PB&J on flax bread - this bread is super healthy in terms of nutritional info, but it is also super dry. I don't really like it. I like chewy, nutty bread and this is not it :( Luckily I am … [Read more...]

Run 12/18/2008

Thanks to everyone who commented on my jacked up foot  tendonitis. Since I don't really have a running partner I have to blog it up to see if anyone has had a similar experience. Today I did 7.5 miles and the foot felt fine (say that 3 times fast). Good deal. We'll see how it holds up on a long run this weekend! Also - I  just got an email from the Improv for a special … [Read more...]

Run 12/17/2008

No run, I decided to do a spinning class today and give my foot another day off. Mother Nature was in agreement with this decision as it's pouring again here! It never rains this much. Is this an El Nino year or something? I am hoping to take a walk later as spinning does not get all my energy and restless leg syndrome out! … [Read more...]

Tuesday morning started with oats, the usual. Why do I even bother to take a pic of these? Oooh, on a happy note I remembered I have wheat berries to add - I love the chewiness that they add to oatmeal!I packed my lunch - turkey and cheese with an apple :) This is what I used to eat almost everyday in high school.Why are there chocolates everywhere right now?!I had to complete … [Read more...]

Hungry Girl Bananas VitaPack

Hungry Girl and VitaTop get together a couple of times a year and offer a deal on a special package of VitaTops. Often this deal includes free shipping. I think free shipping is the biggest selling point since shipping costs around $14.00 from them! I think that is outrageous and only buy VitaTops when I can get free shipping. In the past you could take advantage of the free … [Read more...]

Foot pain update

I went to the podiatrist this morning, because despite running this morning I DO NOT want to run on an injured foot if I should be staying off of it. I needed to know what is wrong with my pata and how I can fix it. The verdict, is just as I suspected: tendonitis. That is actually good news, since the other options of a stress fracture or something similar would mean serious … [Read more...]

Run 12/16/2008

Okay, so I ran today even though my foot still hurts. I couldn't help myself. If you're a runner you understand. Luckily, my foot hurt only mildly as I ran and I had a really great 6 mile run :) … [Read more...]

Run – No Run 12/15/2008

My foot was still hurting this morning so I decided to do a Spin class instead of run. Actually the choice was basically made for me because it was pouring this morning! I don't mind running in the rain, but it was serious heavy rain. I have ran with back spasms and strep throat  in the past, so I wouldn't have put it past myself to run with a hurt foot.  I think this shows a … [Read more...]

Eat 12/15/2008

I wasn't able to take a picture of breakfast today since the BF was uploading my video to the computer when I was about to eat. It was my usual weekday breakfast - oatmeal with naner,PB,brown sugar. I have only really been changing it up during the weekend. Sorry, it's boring, but I love it.   Lunch was a LC pizza and spinach salad. I still have a lot of LC meals from that … [Read more...]

Larabar Video Review

Someone from the Larabar company sent me the world's biggest stash a couple of weeks back. Remember this? Well, I have been meaning to do a video review of some of the flavors since then but, I have  been too busy! I decided to bust one out quick style before we left for Knott's. The BF would only let me do it once, so this is my first shot live to tape. Don't be offended by … [Read more...]

Happy Birthday Matt!

Sunday was Matt's Birthday! We went to Rainforest Cafe to celebrate! Happy Birthday Matt! There was not anything "healthy" on the menu, so I just ordered what I wanted, cheese pizza and a salad. It was just okay :(   … [Read more...]
