So, I have good news and bad news. I'll start with the good. I was able to run today! I'm feeling almost normal again - just a tiny bit of lingering dizziness. I took it easy and did run/walk intervals of 6:1 after a quick warm-up. The bad news: See where I made the red … Continue reading Back in the Saddle
I hit a pretty awesome milestone today - 50 days of running in a row! And in these 50 days (started 11/23/14) I've ran 171 miles. That's 3.42 miles per day on average. I'm pretty sure there were only 1 or 2 days in which I only ran 1 mile (one of those being yesterday, … Continue reading 50-Day Run Streak #writeandrun31
From the 305 (enormous) to the 210 (big), and now the 15 - finally they made one that fits my tiny wrist! And because it also has a step tracker, I'll be able to get rid of my broken Fitbit too ;) Just need to wear it (the Fitbit) one more day to check the accuracy … Continue reading Day 8 #writeandrun31 – My new Garmin came today!
Yesterday went rather well. I made much better choices food-wise, and the last of that Bailey's creamer is finally gone. I went grocery shopping shopping last night and scoured labels on the creamers to find one (that I like) that has no dairy. Seriously, this has been my one major obstacle to being vegan. I … Continue reading Happy Halloween!
Whenever my weight creeps up over 119 I start to freak out. That time has come and so I need to re-focus and start tracking again. Thanks to my friend Michele I decided to start mid-way through yesterday instead of waiting until this morning. As you can see by my food log from yesterday, it … Continue reading Time to Get Back on Track
Today's recipe is a simple yet delicious (and mostly healthy) dessert. Also, since it only yields 10 balls, you could accidentally eat them all for about 1000 calories ;) Cocoa Nutty Dough Balls Ingredients: - 1/3c oat flour (you can grind up rolled oats) - 1/3c ground pistachios - 1/3c ground cocoa-roasted almonds - … Continue reading Cocoa Nutty Dough Balls
So I didn't realize until after I updated yesterday's post that today is Monday. Lol! So I have a nice quick and easy recipe (well, more like a snack) for you today. Caribbean Black Bean Wrap Ingredients: 1 whole wheat wrap 1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed handful of spinach 2 Tbsp mango salsa … Continue reading Meatless Monday: Caribbean Black Bean Wrap
I'm taking a few days off from running until I can straighten out my GI issues. My stomach was so cramped up yesterday I didn't even go to work. I did go in today, but it wasn't much better. And to make matters worse, we had our holiday luncheon today and although I tried to … Continue reading Slight pause in training…
Today was pretty much uneventful (as usual, hehe) so I really have nothing but my little summary. I am going to post a couple recipes tomorrow, so stay tuned! Breakfast: 4 cups coffee with Cafe Mocha. Cream of Wheat Pre-workout snack: handful of Red Hot Blues (tortilla chips) Late lunch: Vegetarian refried beans with salsa, … Continue reading Week Two, Day Three

I did the … Continue reading Week Two, Day Two
