Team REFUEL with Chocolate Milk Online

Hello and Happy Monday!

I got into Orange County about 9pm last night. I thought I was going to be exhausted, but I got a second wind and somehow had the energy to stay up for the season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

OMG. Let’s discuss!

Fail of America = I forgot my MotoActv at Kristin’s house. She text me during my layover and said she found it and would mail it today. She is THE BEST and I feel bad about being such a ditz. Boo to me.

Run – I did an easy 6 miler with no watch and no music. Just me and my head movies Smile This was great actually because I had the chance to think about everything that happened this weekend! IMG_7866 (800x600)

Vegas says “Hi!” “I’m ignoring you because you bug me.”

With all the talk in blogland about pumpkin lattes and such I’ve been craving a fancier coffee. I spotted this Iced Coffee Blend at Target and couldn’t turn down the clearance sale. Yeah, it’s coffee. It doesn’t taste like anything special.IMG_7876 (600x800)

Breakfast – French toast with sunflower seed butter and jam. It was exactly what I was craving. So so good.IMG_7878 (600x800)

I want to thank the Chocolate Milk team for sponsoring me to attend Fitbloggin. I have been working with the company since Rock n Roll Las Vegas and it’s always a very positive, fun experience.runeatrepeat refuel

They support all athletes – not just the top name professionals and I love that! Everyone should be encouraged to push themselves and do their best athletically. I’m not a super star runner (and was self conscious about working with them at first) but they are supportive of all abilities.chocolate milk refuel sign

Question: What are your Monday Mini-Goals for the week?

My mini-goals: I want to stretch after each run and cut out sweets this week. My sweet tooth is out of control lately, so I’m going to try and rein it in.

    Yea for being back home! Monday mini-goals for my week—finish moving & get the last of my $hit out of my apartment. Also, switch the cable at the new place as we don’t have Bravo right now….not sure how that’s even possible!!! Enjoy the week!

    Please stop putting your running abilities down! Just because you aren’t running in the Olympics or winning marathons doesn’t mean you aren’t a great and inspiring runner! I’m 225 pounds and run a 14 min/mile and dream of having a figure like yours and running as fast as you one day! You’re completely more relatable when it comes to running that most bloggers out there who run 18 milers for fun or someone like Kara Goucher. Seeing you put yourself down so much is very disheartening for someone like me who has a long way to go to reach their goals.

    My boyfriend is training for the NYC Marathon in November and I had a chocolate milk-banana protein smoothie waiting for him when he returned from his 17-mile run on Sunday! Needless to say, I was quite happy to learn about the post-workout muscle repair benefits of chocolate milk. :) And I’m with ya on the sweets. I indulged a bit too much over the weekend, so it’s time to reign it in a bit! I’m going to work on assessing how much I REALLY want something before I put it into my mouth. I’m happiest when I’m being mindful of my choices.

    – Start up food tracking again. I’ve been really bad lately and I think it’s because I have noone to hold me accountable. I need to man up and start holding myself accountable. Food tracking works and I think I’m afraid to do it because then I can’t eat donuts.
    – Leave work by 6PM. Every day.

    Was the coffee on clearance because it’s starting to get colder!?! Agh, I’m not ready to say goodbye to iced coffee.

    I made up a meal plan last night and i’d really like to stick to it this week, also cut out the sugar and dairy…both really upset my tummy but I always seem to forget that in the moment.

  6. says

    Monday Mini Goals:
    1. (Please God give me the strength to) Do a 6 mile run.
    2. (The conviction to) Do all my damn dishes.
    3. (The mental fortitude) Not to forget my running shoes again.
    4. (The pleasure to) Reward myself with a couple beer at my brother’s going away party without worrying about the empty calories.

    First I want to start out by saying i’m new to the blog scene. I would really like to start one of my own to document my journey to becoming a personal trainer which is a goal I set for myself a couple months ago. It’s so great to read your blog and see all the comments from women supporting you as well as each other. I look forward to doing a lot more blogging, reading, and supporting in the future.

    Last, but not least my monday fitness goals:
    1. Eat less sweets, and be accountable to my diet
    2. Squeeze in a 6+ mile run
    3. Fit in more yoga, because it just feels so good after :)

    Hi….just finished watching RHNJ (taped last night). Oye-vay, Jacqueline has been weird all season (lately came out having to go through things with son so I understand however she has been misdirecting her anger towards Teresa) , Caroline is just a plain bully to everyone in her life including her husband and children, this has just been a little more evident this season. I could go on and on but wont because I just get so upset watching this show! How about you?

    I dont consider myself a runner but I run. And when I do I enjoy it. I trained and completed my first half marathon in June and I was loving the energy and the way my body looked. But after that summer came and I wasnt in the mood. How do you find motivation to do long runs and tempo runs alone? I am the only one in my group of friends that runs and the running group I found are all elite runners so I get left in the dust. I want to get back on track but I cant find my mojo! How do you do it!?

    I grabbed one of your pictures (refuel-pics1) from this blog post for a photo montage I’m putting together from FitBloggin. I’m hosting an event next week and FitBloggin is one of the sponsors.

    I just found that one of the perks is that I’m getting to read from some of the awesome people who attended last year!
