Back At It

by Meghann on September 7, 2010

And I’m back!

What a crazy/ exciting weekend away that was!

In case you missed it, here’s a breakdown of my NYC adventure:


I got tired just listing that. Needless to say I’m pretty sure we got the most we could out of our little vacation. Now, it’s time to ease our way back in to reality.

What better way to ease in then by getting an extra hour of sleep this morning? Hey, a girl needs her rest! 🙂

I have plans for Hot Yoga this afternoon and sleeping in just sounded like a grand idea as I was preparing myself for bed last night.

The extra time meant extra time for a morning smoothie.


My fridge was lacking anything truly fresh this morning, but I did manage to round up the few ingredients needed for my SIAB.


  • Frozen Berries
  • Frozen Pineapple
  • Plain Yogurt
  • Almond Milk
  • PB2
  • Granola for topping


It’s good to be home. 🙂

Ashley had posted about one of her new outfits from Ann Taylor Loft this morning (p.s. I bought the same jacket too 😉 ) and I thought it would only be fair if I shared mine too.


Eat your heart out J! Just kidding…. 🙂

The top was on sale for $18 (!!) and the skirt came in around $49. Ashley and I both tried the skirt on and fell in love. It’s cute, comfy and so versatile!

I had some nuts as a snack this morning.


And managed to squeeze in a quick trip to the grocery store during my lunch break so that I could enjoy some fresh veggies for lunch.


I made a steamed broccoli and marinara sauce hoagie for lunch with a little sprinkle of cheese to tie it all together.


Too much broccoli + small bun = left overs on the side


Plus, crispy carrot sticks.

Love the outfit. SO CUTE! I Love Anne Taylor Loft. We have a resale store that sells gently used Anne Taylor, J Crew, Banana Republic, and Gap. I love it! It’s cheaper than full price but is a good brand

All I know is I opened this post, saw smoothie, and thought, that is purple and I want to eat it!

14 Jillian @reshapeyourlife September 7, 2010 at 4:30 pm

The outfit looks fabulous! I would never think of making broccoli into a sandwich… but it sounds good!

15 Caitlin September 7, 2010 at 4:52 pm

I love the shirt, but I think the sandwich steals the show. That sounds so delicious!

I’m training for my first marathon, and I have a few questions…

1) Does it matter when you take a rest day? The plan I’m following has it scheduled for the day before long runs, but it works better for me personally if I take it the day after…will that make a big difference?

2) How bad is it to miss a run on the training plan? Obviously I don’t *plan* on it, but in case something comes up, what would you do to make it up?

3) I LOVE strength training and do it at least 3-4 days a week…should I cut down on strength? I’m trying to be careful about my knees so I don’t want to stress them, but my shoulders/back often get sore when I run a lot so I wondered if keeping up with upper body strength would help avoid this?


21 Katie @ Health for the Whole Self September 7, 2010 at 8:20 pm

Love that Loft outfit! Very cute!

Your post just made me realize that I haven’t had marinara sauce in a really long time…too long! Now I’m craving it. 🙂

22 theprocessofhealing September 7, 2010 at 8:49 pm

So glad the presentations are up! Can’t wait to see them!
And I LOVE that top!
