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 [...]

My favorite graduate school professor told me "knowledge is power but people don't want to pay for that power." Paying for information doesn't necessarily mean a monetary exchange, sometimes is a time exchange too. Hearing that statement changed my world and continues to influence how I look at things now. I want to preface this [...]

It's a marathon week so I don't do weights.  I didn't go to my usual group Power class this morning.  Instead, I stayed in and did some strength training with the ladies of Tone It Up.  I seriously love these workouts.  You can get them for free on their youtube or buy a DVD like [...]

This week I haven't really be into anything.  My mind is on Denver next week which kind of made this week kind of blah for me. I haven't been motivated to do much so I've kind of just been off.  I probably just needed a little a reality break though.  I've still done my weekly [...]

I hope everyone is having a good day.  I think I'm a little worn out from my workout yesterday.  I'm feeling a little lazy so I'll take it. My mid-week long run turned out longer than I expected. Let me tell you, I didn't feel like I ran 8 miles until I tried to sneak [...]

This week I'm traveling to Savannah for a conference which got me thinking about traveling. I love to travel. When I close my eyes and picture the future, I see a lot of traveling. I'm a person who is always on the go so being healthy on the go is very important to me. Most [...]

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 stopped meal prepping when I was traveling a lot last fall because I wasn't home.  I stopped a lot of things and it made life a lot harder.  It suddenly became easier to pick up something on the way home.  Since Willie got into his cooking though, things have changed.  I'm not just meal [...]

My veggetti experience

Last week Jes and I purchased the veggetti.  I'd seen the veggetti before but I never remembered to pick it up when I was out.  We saw a commercial for it while we were eating dinner and immediately we went out to purchase one. It was a very exciting moment. I couldn't wait to try [...]

I made macaroni salad

I've been searching for something to eat instead of macaroni and cheese. Not that mac and cheese isn't delicious, it's just not really healthy. I'm constantly on the search for some good side dishes so I thought a macaroni salad would be a nice additional to a spring picnic. Here is what you need: 16 [...]
