Get the Last Drop of Hummus and Vlog Fail


I ALWAYS buy hummus by the bucket full at Costco. I LOVE it. But, it’s hard to dig in and scrape out the last of it. You know I don’t want to miss a drop! So I add chickpeas, mustard, a splash of water and hot sauce to the almost empty container. Mix really well… Then, I pour it over a big salad and pair it with PB&J and tons of watermelon. Lunch is served and no drop … [Read more...]

Confession Thursday–Saul Canelo


It’s that time again…confess and be saved (or at least confess and clear your conscience to thousands of strangers on the internet?). Confession #1: When I can’t decide between 2 foods for a meal I have both. Confession #2:  I’m starting to come to terms with my break up from Dunkin Donuts. He’ll always have a special place in my heart, but I think it’s time for me to … [Read more...]

Eat–Fool Day of Food


I’m changing things up this week and want to do a fool full day of eats in one post twice a week. I prefer seeing an entire run down in order rather then dinner, lunch and breakfast when you catch up with posts – don’t you? Breakfast honored Waffle Wednesday. It was so good, I wish tomorrow was Waffle Whursday… My mid-morning client canceled so I had time to eat watermelon. … [Read more...]

Fourth of July Races

Working on it… In addition to work, blogging and other writing I also have to wash Vegas clothes… At least I have Waffle Wednesday to make me … [Read more...]

Eating Angry


I had another dentist appointment this afternoon. This dental stuff has been going on for months now, but this is my final one until my semi-annual cleaning. Unfortunately, my dentist killed me with the anesthesia and I couldn’t feel half my face for 4 hours. I tried to eat a bunch of times in that 4 hours and almost choked myself twice. Right when I was about to kill myself … [Read more...]

Body Fat Percentage


Since I didn’t have to be at work until 8am this morning I made breakfast before hand. I planned on eating it after I got there, but it disappeared before I even got out the door. So, my strength workout was postponed until my stomach didn’t hurt anymore. I sported my Girls Run LA shirt today I also brought Self magazine’s latest issue - Helps the minutes fly … [Read more...]

Sweet Sticker Sighting


Hello My 7am client canceled so I’m going to use that hour for a strength workout for myself. I didn’t plan out what I’m going to do, so I can’t really share. I mostly just lean on the weight benches and check out guys anyways. ( Run Eat Repeat bumper sticker sighting! Chris from Losing It already put his RER sticker on his car! The sweet part of this … [Read more...]

Mexican Meatless Monday–Easy Enchiladas


Mexican Meatless Monday is back! I’ve been neglecting it because now that I live in Orange County I’m trying to keep my Mexican-ness on the down low. (source) Remember when I dyed my hair blonde? Talk about a FAIL Someone should have told me looking albino isn’t my thing… Not really. California is basically Mexico and I’m loud and proud about it. You should have seen me … [Read more...]

Music Monday–Run Around Monica


Hello and Happy Monday! I started my day with 5 fast miles and a cool down. I felt great which is surprising because my legs were tired last night (randomly because I didn’t exercise). Plus, I have a blister. Good runs help with good moods, don’t ya think? 6 miles in 51:48 – I felt great the whole time. I credit the 53 pieces of cake I ate this weekend with carb loading me up … [Read more...]

Two Weddings and A Funeral


Yesterday we went to the wedding for Ben’s friends – Dan and Jen. It was held at the Segerstrom Concert Hall in Costa Mesa. One of the groomsman caught my eye. He’s a cute one! Oh, it’s Ben. He shines up like a new penny  He’s also available for funerals, bar mitzvahs and engineering parties. I hit on him and ended up taking him home Scandal. Put your guy in a suit and … [Read more...]

Loud MoFo


Today’s run was my first long run of LB ‘11 marathon training!Since we have a tiny condo and house guests I tried my best to be quiet while eating my pre-run fuel. But, that is impossible. I’m loud. Always have been. Probably always will be. Consider yourself warned.(source) I’m sure I even woke up the neighbors. Sorry. I did 12 miles in 1:43:37. I really need to find a new … [Read more...]

Sam Woo Restaurant in Irvine


Roxy is back from her makeover! Before: “Don’t ever change!” After: “I feel so naked!” But, I don’t get why they leave that shaggy tail on dogs for a “summer cut”?! How is a hairy butt “summer-y”? Today was gorgeous so I watched my little brother Matt swim while I blogged. You know how in some places it’s too hot, humid and full of bugs to just chill outside? Because … [Read more...]

My Clean Condo Tour


I am a mess. Okay, not just that – I’m messy too. So, I’m very proud that I cleaned the house instead of going to yoga today. Normally it looks like an episode of Hoarders (just don’t open the closets!). I thought it was sad that Ben and I have lived in this condo for almost one year and we don’t have any pictures up. So, I bought this inspirational canvas the other day … [Read more...]

Finger Licking Good Friday


And by finger, I mean plate… I was supposed to go to yoga today, but Ben’s friends are staying with us this weekend, (they’re in town for the wedding we’re going to tomorrow) and I don’t want them to know we live in shambles. So, I need to clean the house before hitting up my To-Do List. Ben and I took a short walk to discuss this weekend’s agenda. It’s kinda crazy. Ben hit … [Read more...]

Things I Love Thursday and Peanut Sauce


Hello, how’s your day? I thought I’d share The Things I’m loving this lovely Thursday… 1. Limeades from Sonic (because I’ve officially decided they do not count as soda). 2. Sugar free butterscotch. Ben and I are both addicted and going through these bags at an alarming rate. 3. Big ol’ salads. I call this one – “veggie burger, deconstructed”. (Then, I follow the salad with … [Read more...]

4 Miles and Something in My Foot


This morning I had “cardio of my choice” to do for my training program. My choice is running I did 4 easy miles in 35:47 - 8:56 average pace. So, my miles were easy, but taking a picture of my foot was not. See, that blurry dot? I feel like I stepped on something, but it’s kinda under my skin. Will my body just dissolve it or do I need to go to the doctor? Yes. That’s a … [Read more...]
