I’ve had this song stuck in my head all day. ๐Ÿ™‚

p.s. totally remember watching that episode of Barney back in the day. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Do you ever have one of those days where you feel like you’re crossing a million things off of your to-do list at once and are just on a roll? That’s how my day was. Much better than yesterday or Monday when I was still recovering from being away and had the ‘OMG my to-do list is a mile long’ feeling. Oh, yes. Much better. Just another reminder to take things one day at a time – you never know how the next one is going to go. (It will get better!)

I didn’t have much of an appetite for lunch today. I ended up working an hour past my usual lunch time and decided a lighter snack plate was the way to go.


One end of the snack plate had a Super Fruit Oikos with Kashi Go Lean Crunch (for the sweet tooth)


And the other had carrots, almonds, pretzels sticks, and a glob of hummus to dip it all in. (for the savory)   


Surprisingly, very filling.

hummus + almonds + yogurt = filling protein superstars


Afternoon snack:

  • 1 packet of original instant oatmeal
  • dried fruit
  • chocolate whey protein powder (whole foods brand)
  • walnuts


hot water




I keep forgetting that St. Patrick’s Day is this weekend (seriously, where does the time go?). When I was at Publix yesterday, I saw the cabbage on sale and didn’t give it much thought. Then I saw the cabbage on display with the red potatoes (also on sale) and it clicked. Nothing says St. Patrick’s Day like cabbage and potatoes!


Besides irish sodabread (I need to get my hands on some of that before Saturday!)


We’re going out of town on Saturday, so we celebrated a couple of days early with our irish feast.


Possibly one of the easiest meals out there. Just boil the cabbage, potatoes, and ham in some broth – with salt and LOTs of pepper – until the potatoes are soft. Done.


Served with cornbread.


Strawberries + Tag Alongs for dessert.


I have a new favorite photo from my brother’s wedding.

Also, I love my parents.

That is all.

Time for sleep – I have 15 miles to run in the morning! <– if I publicly announce it, that means I have to do it, right?

Good Night!

My Favorite Running Routes in Orlando

March 15, 2012

This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for awhile. ๐Ÿ™‚ First of all, Orlando is BIG. Ok. Not as big as most major cities, but it is fairly spread out. If you’re staying near Disney World or off of International Drive without access to a car, it’s difficult to get around. However, I more ยป

I missed it

March 15, 2012

Good Morning! When I left for Austin last Tuesday I thought I was being good. I wrote out the next couple of New Rules of Lifting workouts, folded them up, placed them in my bag, and swore I would sneak one or two in while I was away. That was a nice little dream I more ยป
