Need some Running Motivation, here ya go… And because this spoke to me this week: Workout Music Monday: Last week for Throwback Thursday I posted Valerie by Amie Winehouse on Facebook. I’m still digging her, but today it’s You Know I’m No Good. It’s not very fast, but I’m not feeling fast today so it works… Remember when I used to do Mexican Meatless Mondays? Well, I … [Read more...]

Grammy-Awards-Jennifer-Lopez-Pitbull.jpg

Happy Monday! Did you watch the Grammy’s last night? I didn’t catch all of it because I was doing random errands and things, but I did catch J Lo and Pitbull looking caliente. I love them and want them to get together and make beautiful Latin babies. (image source) This morning I ran a slow 6 miles and then made custard oats. Method: Cook 1/3 c oats, add 1/3c egg … [Read more...]

Hello! How are you? I’m feeling great considering I ran a full yesterday! I’m not sore at all and kinda feel like I wanna go for a run even! But, I’m not – I am taking a rest day. I am wondering though if I should be sore? Maybe I should push it more in races?? Hmmm. I did hit up the gym for some light weights (okay, mostly to see my friends) but that’s it. I rocked a … [Read more...]

Hello! How is it going? Last night I stopped at Yogurtland on the way home and the manager asked me where I’ve been. I used to be his best customer, but I’ve been dropping the ball lately. Since I ran a half marathon yesterday I am taking a rest day from running today. But, I have more energy than I know what to do with so I hit the gym for a short strength session. I also … [Read more...]

Music Monday– Last Friday on Repeat

IMG_0391-800x600.jpg

Hello from home!!! As much as I love that sleepy little Florida town, I am happy to be home. My mom, dad and little brother picked me up from the airport and we stopped for comida on the way home. I wasn’t very hungry so I just went with a salad. Then, I grabbed up Vegas and took him home. No, I didn’t miss him at all because I have a tiny black heart while I was gone my mom … [Read more...]

Music Monday for Sandy Hook

IMG_7307-800x600.jpg

My heart aches for everyone hurt by the tragedy that occurred in Newtown, CT on Friday. I don’t have any words that would express the sympathy, love and prayers I’m sending to the Sandy Hook Elementary community. Instead, I am taking a moment to pray for them and focus on the people around me today. When I was a junior in high school one of my close friends died in an accident … [Read more...]

Hello and Happy Monday! Since I did a run/bike combo yesterday and a 14 miler on Saturday I knew my legs were due for a rest. I took a little 2 mile walk to wake up and came home for the usual fare. I pretty much avoided the computer all weekend so I have a lot of work to do today! Luckily, I realized Monday would be busy and I thawed some chicken last night. I dumped it in … [Read more...]

Music Monday–Nossa

IMG_5967-800x600.jpg

Good Monday to ya! On the way home from my mom’s yesterday we stopped at a local Mexican place for dinner. Um, they totally gave me the wrong thing. I am totally okay with picking off olives or something, but the wrong thing all together is a little much. The the last time we went there they gave my dad Menudo without hominy too. Sadly, I think this will be my last visit … [Read more...]

Whole Foods Finds and Music Monday

Happy Monday! When I got home from my mom’s yesterday  I sipped some of Ben’s vanilla shake while figuring out dinner. Not sure if you can tell, but I was watching Real Housewives of New Jersey in the background. It is my favorite. Anyone want to be in my RHWONJ fan club? I spotted this Tempeh bacon on sale and WF this weekend and thought I’d give it a while. I love tempeh, … [Read more...]

Good Morning! Wow this weekend was a whirlwind of fun! Thursday – I flew to Seattle and saw my recipe in a magazine. Friday was all about Running and Snacking in Seattle, plus Parties! Saturday I learned about storytelling and picture editing. And Sunday I went home and watched the Real Housewives of New Jersey (love love love) before promptly passing out. I am obsessed … [Read more...]

Music Monday–Run Around Monica

IMG_5345-800x600.jpg

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...]
