Van’s Power Grains Waffles


Happy Tuesday! I have a jelly donut jam packed day so let’s do this… I started my day with a 5.5 mile run. I usually spring right out of bed, but today I felt hungry and blame that on my reluctant run. Weird foggy picture. You’re welcome. I spotted these Van’s Power Grains waffles at Whole Foods this weekend and was excited to give them a whirl. I used to eat waffles every … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Cheerios


Maybe it’s because I love food, maybe it’s because I love shopping, maybe it’s because I love food shopping – but I am good at finding new foods! Today I went in to Target for one little ol’ thing and spotted the new Peanut Butter Cheerios right away. I was on the phone with my mom and pretty much made her think I found the last jar of concealer during pimple period week. … [Read more...]

I Scream For Ice Cream


I was HUNGRY this afternoon and knew I needed a “real” snack. By “real” I mean “BIG” and by “snack” I mean “meal”. I made a bowl of oatmeal with banana and PB. Oh, and I added granola after the picture. Food Find! I spotted multi-packs of flavored Fage yogurt at Costco today. Please note: This does not make up for the fact that they stopped carrying Vitatops. Major fail … [Read more...]

Condiment Kingdom


Ben and I met up with our friends, Matt and Kristin, for dinner tonight. We went to Chick-fil-A since Matt's work was holding a fundraiser there. Before that... I got home super hungry after work. I tried to appease my hunger with carrots, chips and ketchup, but that didn't work. After eating this I grabbed a bunch of random bites of things from the kitchen like a chunk of … [Read more...]

Time for Dinner!

After a few cold dinners on the table Ben and I have declared 7pm Dinner Time. This way he knows when he should be home and I know when I will be eating dinner and can plan my snacks accordingly. I am thinking between 3 and 4pm is the best time for my afternoon snack so I'm hungry for dinner. Do you have a dinner time? I never had one before, but we're trying this whole … [Read more...]

15 to 15 – Cut the Crap

After a week of indulging on my vacation and also eating a lot of sweets and treats before  - I've decided I need to Cut The Crap. All the "crap" I've been eating has been affecting my energy level, running, skin and healthy mindset. It's also become a habit - I've eaten dessert everyday for the last 2 weeks (at least). September  15 to October 15 is the Cut the Crap … [Read more...]

No Cold Condiments

Today I totally ate what I wanted and it made me happy :) My lunch was a big salad bar feast and dinner was simple, but the best! I made a veggie wrap with my new favorite veggie burgers. I put a random carrot on the side for kicks. My condiments of choice for this meal :) I don't keep these in the fridge because I hate when condiments make your food cold! I don't care what … [Read more...]

New Veggie Burgers

I have been eyeing these Veggie Burgers at Costco for a while, but didn’t want to get them because of the nutrition info. They are a little low on protein for a girl who uses veggie burgers as her main source of protein some days (when breakfast is cereal and lunch is PB&J…).   But, I knew based on their similarities to Dr.P burgers that I would love them, so I … [Read more...]

Porno Comment

Who is trying to add porno spam to my blog? Ha, I saw a comment was flagged today and thought it was something bad, but I laughed when I realized it was just that. Today was eventful because I had to tell my boss of many years that I'm leaving.  My current position has worked with me through me attending college full time - they let me change my schedule each semester. And … [Read more...]

Here's the plan…

I've decided to use the Runner's World Marathon Challenge training plan for the Marine Corps. I haven't had any time to read Run Less and really want to do that program right if I'm gonna give it a shot. Today is Day 1 of training and it called for an Easy 4. After I was done I had a naner with PB - I have realized that if I don't have healthy fats with breakfast I am more … [Read more...]

Hopeful Honeymoon

Because of some stuff going on right now Ben and I may have to postpone the honeymoon to September :( I am so bummed because we have put off taking a vacation this year for this trip! Boo. I'm hoping it will work out and we'll be able to go to Belize like we originally planned. I don't want to say "pray for us" because this isn't that important in the grand scheme, but maybe … [Read more...]

Almost there!

Ben and I got our marriage license today on our lunch. We had to meet at the Registrar's office because we are coming from 2 different directions. Before I left I ate cherries. I still can't decide if my favorite fruit is watermelon or cherries!         I also had to pack lunches for Ben and I to eat since we were getting the license during our lunch. I ate half a piece … [Read more...]

Old vs. New

This Sunday was a day of trying new things and enjoying old ones... No Run: Rest day. After breakfast I did some blog reading and went to yoga :) It is so nice to just have a good "stretchy" yoga class after a long run day! I really don't stretch often and appreciate when I have to do it in yoga. Old : Oatmeal, same as usual... New :This Pulled "Chicken" from TJ's - which I … [Read more...]

Quaker Find & Recap

Sorry I didn't post again yesterday. Ben called me at 5pm and wanted me to go straight from work all the way to Orange County to check out a condo he really likes. He wanted to jump on it and put in an offer so I had to see it first. It's an hour or so drive from where I live, so by the time I got there, checked out the condo, ate dinner with him and drove back it was super … [Read more...]

POM Wonderful – Review

The lovely people at POM Wonderful recently sent me some of their juice to sample. It's 100% pomegranate juice (from concentrate). Here is my review: [youtube=] I liked it :)  It tastes and is good for you, what's not to like right? Plus you can mix it with seltzer or in other beverages to enjoy (see below). In case you want to … [Read more...]

So many chips, so little time before the wedding

I went to Costco to get dog food and bread on my lunch and walked out with these things. I picked up the bag to take a look at the nutrition information and a man walked up to me and raved about them. So, I thought I would trust the word of my new random stranger friend and get 'em. He was right. They are good. I ate 1 serving on the way back to work and 1 on the way home … [Read more...]
