One guess & Mary Announcement

I'll let you have one guess of what I had for breakfast today... Here's a hint - I'm apparently totally predictable and boring. Yep, folks another day of oats, wheat berries, almond milk, naner, cinnamon and PB. Shocking, I know.   JUNE In an effort to actually give you something new and exciting I've decided to just go for it and run the OC Marathon May 3rd. Why the hell … [Read more...]

Cereal pic MIA, as usual

I was doing something with my camera in the afternoon and didn't take a pic of a bowl of cereal for an afternoon snack. Dinner was a boring salad and leftover tofu & brussel sprouts with ww couscous. I am doing something wrong. I need to save money for my upcoming events ;) but it's hard to get in the habit of sticking to a specific budget and get all the things I need. … [Read more...]

Lent is for real

Dinner was my favorite meal - sweet potato, brussel sprouts & tofu (that can be switched with salmon … [Read more...]

Donde esta mis azucar?

Happy Humpday :) This morning when I woke up I did NOT want to run. I don't really know why, I just didn't feel like I had a lot of energy, but I knew if I skipped out I would regret it later & wouldn't have time to do it. So, I set out on a 7 miler. I am not going to lie and say that I loved every minute of it - the first 3 miles were mentally tough since I wanted to stop, … [Read more...]

Fat Tuesday – my kinda day

I started the day with a huge bowl of cereal. After I eat the biggest bowl of cereal I am not as full as when I eat a normal bowl of oats. Oats are so much more filling. Since I was still hungryI had a piece of bread with PB. What a pretty lunch! Look at these strawberries and blueberries :) I also had a PB and pumpkin butter sandwich. I don't really like this bread, luckily … [Read more...]

FAT Tuesday!

Happy Fat Tuesday! I am excited because I have a co-worker/friend from New Orleans (she came out to CA after Katrina) and she ordered King Cake from a local bakery for everyone in the office. I have never tried it and didn't even know about it until last year when NPR did a story on it :) Here's what Wiki says about it: A king cake (sometimes rendered as kingcake, kings' cake, … [Read more...]

I have made Ben promise that he will not look at the site so he won't see me.

To run or not to run…

After 11 miles on Saturday morning I was soooo hungry - I got used to eating before my long runs and was super hungry and thirsty by mile 8! I have a usual water fountain I stop at if I don't have my fuel belt and it was broken :( I need a better fuel belt since I don't like the one I have now. Next Race : I was considering running another full marathon in May. I am on the … [Read more...]

Day 2 – More lessons

On Day 2 of my personal challenge I learned even more, like: 1. Stop fucking eating chocolate after lunch 2. Don't eat paper ( more on that to come) I started the day with my OG oatmeal. I just love this breakfast and it keeps me super full for a long time, if it ain't broke right? I had fruit after lunch, but the pic is MIA. Lunch was a BIG salad with greens, sweet … [Read more...]

Day 2

Day 2 tips - Write it down, basically make a food journal to keep track of what you're eating. This is really hard for me to do because it just reminds me of my super restriction days and I can't help but rebel and want to act out threw a binge. I may give it a whirl, but I'm not sure. Day 2 Plan - B: oatmeal w/ naner S: fruit L: grilled cheese sammie on ww BIG salad S: … [Read more...]

Day 1 – Lesson Learned

So, I learned a lot in Day 1 of the 21 day makeover. - Planning is good! I haven't been planning my meals so it was different to already know what I was going to eat. What did work was I had food that needed to be eaten before my planned menu and I didn't want it to go bad so I changed it up a bit. I ate eggs on my salad instead of beans and have a bunch of random leftovers … [Read more...]
