I've been putting it off. But I finally¬†gave CrossFit a try. It's so different from my normal workout style, I figured it would be a good way to push myself into something new! Now that I'm running a lot less, I'm looking for new classes to keep me … [Continue reading]

Ok fine. I admit it. Sometimes I go an entire weekend without ever really cooking anything. Stop judging! It happens. When you're in walking distance of so many cute restaurants, it's hard not to bounce around from one place to the next. Since I had … [Continue reading]

The Perfect Weekend

I think it actually was the perfect weekend. I literally can't think of how to make it better. Let's take a look at Saturday: I woke up around 6am, to eat a quick smoothie before the race. For the record, a banana smoothie in a Dark Chocolate Peanut … [Continue reading]

I had a post all planned for today. A nice update on the Get Well Challenge, the meeting with my dietician, picking up my race packet for the half marathon tomorrow... all those cool things. (Which, by the way, are all going quite well.) And … [Continue reading]

So I briefly mentioned it on this post, and there might have been some confusion. I am not trying anything "low carb" and I'm not trying to eat any less than I normally do. What I've noticed is that lately I've been hungry all the time, and I'm … [Continue reading]

I've made it to the final stretch! The half marathon is this Saturday, and I can't believe how fast the training went by. I'm excited for the race, and I honestly can't believe I've made it this far. I'm happy to say that I was able to loosely follow … [Continue reading]

Weekend Eats

I woke up yesterday with a sore throat and a bit of a head cold. My meals always get a little thrown off when I'm feeling under the weather, so I thought it would be more fun to show you what my meals looked like on Sunday. Because I was awake … [Continue reading]

White “Pizza” Scramble

This recipe has a long back story. I'm going to give you an abridged version, in case your attention span is as short as mine. Since I've been tracking my food, I noticed I eat a lot of carbs. Like a lot. Most of them are good-for-you-carbs. And … [Continue reading]

[Vegetarian] Split Pea Soup

There were a few reasons why I had to make this soup. 1. Most versions I've seen have ham in them. 2. It's (eventually) going to get cold around here, and I need lots of soup options. 3. This soup is so easy to make, and I can almost … [Continue reading]
