Marathon Meals–Time to Carb Load


Hello! I didn’t end up getting home until close to midnight last night! By that time I was hungry and Ben and I shared a homemade banana / strawberry yogurt smoothie and then hit the hay. This morning I was not ready to crawl out of bed when my alarm went off, luckily I had an easy 6 miler planned and that woke me up just fine I also busted out the fancy coffee because I … [Read more...]

Search Me Sunday Fun


Hello from my mom’s house! I’m hanging here with my dogs because Ben is working on his car with my brother. We walked the perros and said “Hola!” to my pumpkin. I had a little snack before the walk because I’ve been craving cereal (as always), but have been trying not to keep it in the house. (Working from home + cereal addiction x a box of cereal = 0 cereals left) Bailey, … [Read more...]

Detox and Retox


Hello! I gave myself the day off from blogging yesterday – hopefully you were too busy with fun stuff to notice But, I did manage to take a few pictures so let’s catch up… I slept in (for me) and went on a 16 mile run around 8am. I would never be able to start running that late in the summer, but it’s FINALLY starting to cool down a teeny bit here. The run was okay, nothing … [Read more...]

Chef Chen


Hello! I just want to do a quick check in and tell you about my delicious date night dinner I was craving either Thai food or Chinese last night and since we had Thai a few weeks ago I decided we should change it up this week. I started to “Yelp” places, but told Ben just to drive in toward Irvine. Irvine is the city right next to us with a huge Asian population and an even … [Read more...]

Lady’s Night at Road Runner Sports


Yesterday afternoon Skinny Runner texted me about going to “Ladies Night” at Road Runner Sports (the big running store chain). I was thisclose to turning her down, but I had such a crazy day I thought it would be good for me to get out. Road Runner hosts a ladies night run and an “adventure run” a each month. It’s free and open to anyone too! Sadly, next week’s run is the … [Read more...]

Thankful Not So Thankful Thursday


Today has been… interesting. I woke up in a great mood and ran 8 miles with music. I kept an easy pace and just enjoyed it Then, I came home, took a quick shower and logged onto work while making breakfast. Well, as soon as I logged on my co-worker who’s been on vacation instant messaged me about a project that is due by end of day TODAY. What?! I didn’t even know about … [Read more...]

Death By Grapes


I almost died today! Yes. It’s true. You guys know how I pride myself on eating dirty grapes because I’m not afraid of some dirt. Even when I would drive home chomping on grapes and end up with dirty fingers and think about how much of that I was eating… Even after I ate dirty grapes in Panama and then projectile vomited at the Dole Summit last November - I hung in there … [Read more...]

The Runny Egg


Yesterday I received a HUGE package from my favorite delivery guy. TWSS. No really, I wasn’t expecting anything so it was a real surprise when I opened up the box and saw this… What is it? Who is it from? There were no obvious name brands or logos so I was intrigued. The big cardboard box it came in had an ice pack so I suspected it was edible. I peeled open a corner and … [Read more...]

ING New York Marathon Fuel Right to PR


Helloooo! Today was a busy day for me. Taking a day off of work is always nice, but then you have twice as many things to do when you get back! While I was gone I got a very excited package in the mail… I finally broke down and ordered a new watch because I wanted to make sure and figure out how to use it before New York. Speaking of the ING New York City Marathon… The race … [Read more...]

Giveaway: Borelli Active Scarf


I made it home! It was a long day, but I finally got home around 11pm last night. I ended up grabbing a bar and drink from the airport in Dallas, but still felt a little hungry (probably just tired) when I got home and had a few handfuls of trail mix before calling it a night. I do not get a gold star on my “No Nighttime Eating” calendar for yesterday. When I got to the … [Read more...]

Sabra Hummus Heaven


I was in Hummus Heaven today, but let’s start from the beginning… This morning the fancy van was back to pick up all the Sabra Tastemakers for our day at the factory. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was excited (to eat hummus). Breakfast was set out for us from Panera. I sat right in front of the pastries, but opted for a bowl of oatmeal with the most delicious granola … [Read more...]

Sabra Tastemakers Dinner


Yesterday afternoon I landed in Richmond, VA around 5:20pm with just enough time to change into my jeans and meet the group. I stood on a toilet seat cover for help. We had a big ol’ party van with colored lights and everything. It was fun. The van swept us off to the hotel where we had 45 minutes to get ready for dinner. The Sabra peeps left us a welcome package in the … [Read more...]

Going to Richmond Virginia for Hummus


Hello!!! I am currently blogging from 30,000 feet in the air on my way to Richmond,VA. A few months ago I was contacted by a rep from Sabra about working with them as an ambassador. One of the perks is a trip out to VA to tour the Sabra factory! I have always been a big fan of Sabra and am super excited! I can’t believe this is my life. I am very lucky and happy and stinky … [Read more...]

Peppino’s Italian Food


Helloooo! I have been like a caged animal all week and really wanted to go out to dinner last night. Luckily (?) Ben worked a little late so I had time to actually slap on some makeup and change out of my yoga pants. It was nice I NEVER want to go out to eat Italian food unless I specifically want pizza. Not.A.Fan. I’ve heard that SoCal doesn’t really have any good Italian … [Read more...]

Fun Friday and Pumpkin Oatmeal


Happy Friday! This week kinda flew by for me because I was a.) busy and b.) floating along on a cloud of happiness Last night I watched the VP debate and Jersey Shore. So I’m hoping they canceled each other out and my IQ and self respect stay about the same. I felt munchy all day yesterday and kept grabbing handfuls of trail mix. Finally, I made a hearty pumpkin yogurt … [Read more...]
