Running a bit behind

This past weekend put me a little behind on the food prep thing which in turn has kind of made life a little harder. This weekend I ran one of those Hot Chocolate races and it wasn't a good experience. I'll put that in a separate post for the interested parties later. But that meant [...]

Tuna Chickpea Salad

This past weekend I took my bestie to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods!  She had never been.  I was shocked when I found this out because I love those places.  Any health foodie loves Whole Foods, right?  Yes I know it's expensive BUT you can find stuff in that store you can't get most places. [...]

I've had a mild obsession with salads lately.  I think it's because Willie and I have been listening to food podcasts and talking about food.  In our house, endurance sports and cooking are the main topics. So I've been trying to come up with some salad ideas. I've also been told that I'm having iron [...]

I've been sick but I'm trying to get on the mend quicker so I can run my second marathon in 6 days on Saturday.  I've been overloading on vitamin C and medicating up.  The Gusher will be my first TEXAS marathon and I'm glad to say it will be run in my hometown!  Things are [...]

Not the best day

Today hasn't been kind to me. The day started out great but it went down hill shortly after I taught my cycle class this morning. My ankle has been bothering me but I trucked through the class. I really enjoyed teaching the class this morning and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Teaching this class was [...]

Dealing with maintenance mode

People are very curious to see if I'm still trying to lose weight.  I am here to answer that question: no! I'm in maintenance mode and I've been that way for almost two years now, I think.  Two years seems like a really long time.  It took me 13 months to hit my first goal [...]

My week wasn't filled with just bread but the bread was so good.  I spent half of Sunday evening staring at the oven while the bread Willie made me baked. The bread was so delicious and I must admit, last night I sat on the floor at 9:30 pm watching the oven AGAIN as Willie [...]

I get a LOT of e-mails wanting to know what I'm eating. When I have more time, I cook REALLY good meals but I haven't had much time so I've been eating really basic meals. I haven't been cooking too much lately. If it's been too late to cook anything we've picked up salads from [...]

Froyo (aka frozen yogurt) is my thing.  When I was larger, I would sit down with quarts of ice cream and devour them while watching television...along with a McDonalds 20 pack of chicken nuggets, two double cheeseburgers, large fries and just for my own health, a medium order of fries too.  Not my healthiest moment, [...]

This time last year I was side lined with an injury. I didn't know much about anything and I was going on a hope and a prayer. I am taking the time to really educate myself and learn from my mistakes. People often say they aren't hungry or don't eat before workouts, but there are [...]
