healthy eating

Hello my friends!  I'm boring this week.  I'm living for the little things.  I've been really busy at work (both jobs) so I have been looking forward to spending a minute at home.  Meal prep happened very quickly this week by eating some old favorites.  But I was looking forward to making something with my [...]

When I travel, it's really hard to get the meal prepping done.  Guess what? I'm going to be doing a lot of traveling for the rest of the year so I'm going to have to learn to perfect the system.  I usually end up skipping a workout so I can get everything done but yesterday [...]

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 [...]
