Football games & Hiking weather

2013-11-29 10.02.59

Is anyone else in denial that it’s December? I’m genuinely concerned over how I will get done everything I need to in the next 4 weeks (Chicago, Gainesville, Moving + Holidays.) I guess that’s what caffeine and wine are for. Friday night I kicked it old school and went to a high school football game. […]

My Holiday Charity Challenge

Black Friday is looming just around the corner and instead of jumping on the anti-shopping bandwagon aiming to preserve the ‘sanctity’ of Thanksgiving (which is a farce to me considering what the holiday really represents) I wanted to offer up a challenge. Replace the purchase of one gift this year with a donation to a […]

My Holiday Diet

Christmas1

With Thanksgiving this week we are officially entering the time of year where the majority of women start to lament about the dreaded Holiday weight gain. In the spirit of that anxiety I thought I’d take today to give you all some insight on what I’ll be doing this Holiday season to combat any changes […]

Stealing & Shopping

2013-11-23 07.09.31

This weekend recap is a bit pic obese so I’ll try to keep my yapping to a minimum! Started off Saturday with a 2 mile run. My feet are still screwed. I’ve been doing a bit of research online and I believe it’s tendonitis on the top/sides of both feet. The pain travels a bit, […]

Week in {Strength} Workouts

2013-11-18 18.39.24

As much as I wish my foot was feeling 100% normal it was kind of nice to be forced into strength training more since I couldn’t run this week. I basically gave up all strength training once marathon training started and I’m thrilled to find that I haven’t lost much muscle! I’m not as toned […]

Some veggie & protein based dishes for lunch, a few small […]

The Magical Egg White Oatmeal

I’m thrilled to introduce you all today to the breakfast that’s been filling my happy little belly up every morning for months now. I’m certainly not the first person to come up with this idea, and I first stumbled upon the idea thanks to Andrea (who’s going to make the worlds best doctor!) While I clearly […]

I think I broke my foot

IMG_7226

Ever since the marathon I haven’t been able to move my right big toe. I can point it up, but I can’t curl it down without a tendon/bone/something feeling like it’s popping on the top of my foot. I’m back to icing (both feet now) 2x a day and am going to cut back on […]

Week In Workouts

2013-11-12 08.34.55

Could it be? An actual day of strength training! Oh em gee. It felt great to pull out one of my favorite Jillian Michael’s DVD this week. I went with level 2 and my arms were shaking as I put on my make-up. I forgot how good that felt! My run on Thursday was 4 […]
