I've been eating the same thing all week for all 3 meals. Boring? Nope, delicious! Have a look: The recipe for the Taco Bake is HERE, and the BB (Black bean) Sriracha sauce is HERE. Instead of making it with the veggie pasta (like on the recipe link), I've just been eating it over brown … Continue reading This Week’s Food and Fitness
Food tracked, workout done, and new recipe created (will share tomorrow). No Fed Ex man today - boo! Today was cross-training day. I did a 1 mile warm-up walk followed by 20 minutes (1 mile) on the Arc Trainer. I hate that machine but it really is a good workout. For dinner I made Spicy … Continue reading Food and Fitness 3/10/15
I think the time change caught up with me this morning. I couldn't get out of bed and ended up being an hour late for work - oops. At least I missed the morning rush hour traffic ;) I tracked everything I ate/drank today: Today's workout (Week 5 Day 1 of marathon training) was a … Continue reading Food and Fitness 3/9/15
This never-ending winter is really starting to get to me. So much so that I don't want to do anything but eat and sleep. At this point I even dread taking Lucy for her walks because if I'm not slipping and falling on the ice on my own, she's so strong that any amount of … Continue reading Tuesday Tails
It started with an innocent visit to Amazon.com so I could compare a couple of vegan protein powders. A few clicks here and a few clicks there, when all of a sudden I had an email confirming this purchase: How does this keep happening?! Lol! Perhaps it's time for an intervention? ;) In all seriousness … Continue reading Oops, I did it again!

I don't have much for today. It's been non-stop raining/sleeting all day so I stayed in bed until 3pm listening to and finishing that book I started last night - Pines by Blake Crouch. I liked the first half better than the 2nd half, but it was one of those books that I couldn't stop … Continue reading Running, Reading, Ghosts, and Tomatoes
Let me get the whining right out of the way... The shoes are no good. Yes, they fit perfect and are very comfortable. Until I ran in them. Instead of trying to explain what it is about them, let me just say that I'm back to searching for an everyday, light-weight, minimal yet cushion-y running … Continue reading Shoe Search Continues…
I couldn't wait to get home from work today and try on the new, new PF2s and THEY FIT! Yay! They feel perfect on my feet (just like the adult-sized PF2s), so I'm hoping they aren't any different (I couldn't tell with the other new pair since they're too big). I'll report back on that after … Continue reading They Fit!
