Shoe Success, and Snowmageddon

You guys!! My shoe search is over! The Fastwitch’s came today and after trying them on I immediately took them for a test run. They felt so good, and my run was so awesome(!!!) that as soon as I finished, I ordered 2 more pairs! I’m a little sad they aren’t Brooks, but as long as I can #runhappy who cares what the brand is right?! And, look at my overall pace!!!

Woohoooo!! That’s fast for me!!

The protein powder I ordered also came today (I love you, Mr. FedEx man!). I’ll be trying that tomorrow and will report back afterwards.

I’m almost afraid to get on the scale tomorrow because I ate that entire head of Buffalo Cauliflower between last night and today! I’ll definitely be making that again soon!

Tonight I whipped up a batch of Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. I was going to share the recipe but it needs a tad bit of tweaking first. It tasted good, but was a little too garlic-y, and seemed to be missing “something.” I added some Sriracha and that just about did it, but it still needs some spice adjustment.

Roasted Red Pepper hummus topped with some Sriracha love.

So now I’m just waiting to see how much snow we’re going to end up with. The NJ Governor called a State of Emergency at 1pm today, so I got out of work at 2pm, and already got the call that my office will be closed tomorrow. There’s also a driving ban starting at 10pm. The last I heard we are expecting anywhere between 18 and 28 inches. Of course that could change at any time and we could end up with more/less. Makes no difference to me – I’ve got coffee, my new shoes, and my treadmill, so I’m all good with whatever happens :)

  1. Oh my gosh, be safe with all the snow!! :-( I’ll be thinking about you! Also, I can’t wait to try your red pepper hummus recipe. Excited to try it!! Please do report about your protein powder!! Excited to hear, too!! Yay!! Great stuff!! XOXO

  2. Yay for Fastswitch! You know I’ll have to try them ;-) you’ll have plenty of time run off that cauliflower and hummus.

    • I was up almost a pound this morning, but I totally expected it (and it was worth it, Lol!). If you order the Fastwitch, definitely go 1/2 size up. They run extremely small. I love them so far!

  3. I’m due to get a new pair of shoes soon! Maybe for a Valentine’s Day present from the hubby? ;-)

    I’ve always had Brooks, but am ready for a change, I think, so I’ll let you know what I end up getting!

    Have fun with the snow day(s)! Stay safe and sound!
