Puffin Munchins

by Meghann on July 17, 2009

There is something about little sample bags of my favorite treats that put a smile on my face.

I stalked up on quite a few samples of Peanut Butter Puffins after my marathon in San Diego and I love the convenience of the pre-portioned serving size. This morning I just grabbed the bag from my stash, threw it in my purse and was out the door.

It made the perfect mid-morning snack.

I also love the $1.00 off coupon that is printed on the back of the bag.

When it is time to restock on these peanut butter balls of crunch, the $1.00 off will come in handy.

Lunch today was simple and quick. It seems like the majority of my lunches always are. :)

I reheated the other half of my Mellow Mushroom Mega-Veggie Pizza from Wednesday night.

This was originally sliced into 2 slices, but I trimmed it to 4 so I felt like I was eating more.

With the pizza I had a refreshing hunk of Watermelon.

For some reason the combination of pizza & watermelon just screamed summer for me today.

I’m hoping the beautiful sunshine outside holds up for when I get off of work this afternoon. Abbie is BEGGING to be taken to the dog park. How could you deny that pitiful face?

Small World..

I wanted to share with you an e-mail Caitlin, Jenna and I received from one of my favorite readers, Gina, last night. This brought a smile to my face. :)

Hello! I wasn’t exactly sure how to let you girls know this, so I figured it would be best to email you :-)
I went to a Team In Training information meeting last night and ended up talking with one of the girls from the Central PA chapter. She asked how I found out about TNT and I told her read these blogs that were about food and healthy living who were also involved in TNT and lived in Florida. No joke, she looked at me and said, are you talking about Jenna, Meghann, and Caitlin?! I couldn’t believe it! What are the odds?
Just thought you would like to know :-) She said she tried to get into the Healthy Living Summit but had problems with the site, so I told her I would take lots of pictures for her.

Seriously it is a small world. It’s really good to hear when ever we’ve inspired someone to sign up for a good cause. Good luck with your fund raising ladies!

Speaking of fund raising for Team in Training, the wonderful Meghan of Help Meghan Run is having a fund raiser of her own for her Team in Training efforts. For the reasonable donation of $10 Meghan is selling a Nutrition Cookbook chalk full of great nutrition information as well as yummy healthy recipes. For more information head over to her blog now.

July 17, 2009

After drinking some seltzer water to calm my tummy down and a good night’s sleep I was up roaring and ready to go for my longer run this morning. I was itching to do some distance and planned a 7 mile run before work. The whole 7 miles I felt great. I kept it at more »
