Hello! How’s it going?
This morning I had some oats in a jar before my run. This is the best way to get all the nut butter from the bottom since it gets all melty and soft and delicious.
When I just started my run I spotted the tamale lady on the corner. I immediately stopped and bought a bunch of tamales to eat after my workout. Best decision I’ve made in a long time!!
So, when I got back home this warm deliciousness was waiting for me…
Let’s talk about last night though for a minute or two… Ben and I have been spending some time apart but we’re hanging out this week and we went for a short hike yesterday afternoon.
I have this thing were I like to find a big walking stick to
poke at him help me walk. And I found a winner this time!
Wait. Walking sticks are supposed to help you walk? This might be more like a falling stick.
God bless SoCal. Thank you.
Post-walk refreshments: Watermelon margaritas make my life better.
Oh, and these happened at some point yesterday. I just found this picture on my phone.
Question: When was the last time you went on a walk or hike?
Tedi @ Running with Infertility says
A tree! that’s awesome! was it just on the trail or did you have to go off trialing to find it?

Hope things work out with Ben, I have never been married, so I have no idea how hard it can be.
What shoes do you use for hiking? Trails? Or just any pair of shoes will do? I mean for casual hikes rather than trail running.
And I’m glad you spent some time with Ben over the weekend – haven’t heard you mentioning about him on the blog for some time (although it’s none of my biz!).

You’re so funny hiking with half a tree! That margarita looks phenom! I haven’t gone for a ‘walk’ for more than 2 months…blahhh! Have a great week!
Alisha @ Real Girl Running says
I haven’t been eating as much nut butter lately, so I haven’t had oats in a jar for awhile. Yum! I might have to get on to both of those things 🙂
I walked my dog with my hubby around our local hood yesterday, and that was so lovely! Sometimes it’s just the little things that make me happy 🙂
Yummmy tamales! I wish we had a lady selling them on our corner! Is that typical for you there? We dont really have street vendors in DC aside from those on the national mall selling ice creams and whatnot. Also yay to a ben sighting – hoping for the best outcome for ya’ll!
the last time I went on a hike was with my aunt and we went on an hour hike it was during the night but than we heard a animal so we got scared and head back home lol

Your hiking stick photo is very timely! It’s not walking/hiking season here in Wisconsin, but we did go snowshoeing last night and my poor 8 year old ended up in the E.R. after she scratched her cornea with her walking stick :/ Probably letting her carry a walking stick while snowshoeing on an unlighted trail wasn’t the best parenting moment…I’m just glad she didn’t poke her eye out. Geez! And I just have to say that oats in a nut butter jar are one of life’s greatest little pleasures….I will admit that I often transfer our PB to a different container just to use the jar for my overnight oats 🙂

That’s a big walking stick! I haven’t taken a hike or walk in a while, and it’s about time. There are plenty of good places to do that here in the Bay Area. Happy Sunday to you!

Mmmm- oats in a jar. Love it.
Livi @ Eat, Pray, Work It Out says
I went on a hike last weekend and it was awesome!
I went for a hike today! My guy and I have been apart a lot lately too, so spending time together again and in the lovely outdoors is nice.
Good tip on oats at the bottom of the nut butter jar!
AJ @ NutriFitMama says
It’s been a while since I have gone on “just” a walk or a hike (if I’m not running, it’s not keeping me warm enough to be outside!!)- I MISS living in SoCal where you can do things like that in the winter!
Sally @ sweat out the small stuff says
My last significant hike was about 2 months ago. It was a super hard hike that lasted about 4 hours. But two weeks ago we took the dogs to a state park to hike but it was more like trudge through a foot of snow and we only walked an hour. Walking sticks are awesome for hiking though
Becky @ Ok, so here's the plan says
I’ve taken some snowy trail walks with my pooch lately. I miss when the ground wasn’t covered with snow!
Erin @ Erin's Inside Job says
Since the weather has been “warm” for Chicago, my husband and I have been taking advantage of the weekends and walking all around the city. We are taking time to explore new places since we have only been here a couple months. Hope you and Ben have a good weekend!
Cheri @ Overactive Blogger says
That trail is gorgeous!
Tricia @ A Couple Of Dashes says
Watermelon margs! YUM!!!! I haven’t had a marg in so long and this sounds absolutely delicious!!!
I’m happy to hear that you and Ben have been spending some time together this week. I hope you guys are doing well and able to work things out.
I had to comment. I tried to make oats in my almond butter jar because there was only a little left and for $7 a jar, I figured I’d get the last little bit. Well, plastic jar + microwave = melted disaster. How does this work? Do you buy the glass jars or just make overnight oats and eat them cold?
