    I’m going to need to get some figs. You are really piquing my interest with them!

    LOVE the Maddie pictures and the pics of the new family member last week!! Did you pick a winner of the Trojan contest last week?? If so, I missed it!!

      Yes, I did. I was trying to keep the entries for the giveaway discreet, so the winner was contacted privately through email over the weekend. I will say that she was very excited about winning the prize. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Over the holiday weekend I finally got dragged into the 21st century and got a smartphone. My boyfriend went with an iPhone, but your blog convinced me that a droid phone was the way to go. Just downloaded Google Drive too!
    Thanks! Do you use any other apps regularly? (Look at me using the word “app” like I’m an old pro – I’m secretly terrified of how complex this phone is.)

      If you’re a google girl – you’ll love the Droid! My favorite apps are Instagram, Picsart (for creating collages that I post on Instagram), Yelp, IMDB, Twitter, and Facebook.

    What happened to the trainer you were working with?

      It didn’t work out. Turns out I wasn’t a fan of online personal training. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve never before tried figs, but you seem to be so in love with them — I’m definitely going to be picking some up the next time I’m out shopping!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I will warn you up front that they’re not for everyone. Try them on a salad or roasted with honey and ice cream. ๐Ÿ™‚

    what kind of whey protein do you use? i can never get my protein to blend well into my oatmeal and it always tastes chalky.

      I use the chocolate generic whole foods brand. I’ve never had a problem with it, I really like the flavor.

    I really want to try crossfit too, after my marathon, but I looked up membership near me and it’s more for one month than I pay for my entire yearly gym membership! I laughed and closed the web page immediately…

      Yeah, that’s the main downside. Hence why I’m saving up for it and only starting a couple of months before my wedding instead of right now.

    If your main concern is the cost, I’m surprised you haven’t attempted to get a Crossfit membership for free through your blog. It is the kind of thing, in my opinion, that really adds to race training and is best as a 1-3 week type of thing.

      I’ve thought about it, but I’m not a fan of soliciting stuff when I don’t have a relationship with the company/box/whatever. I’m happy to save and pay the fees when I get to it.

    This is a great idea. Maybe this bridesmaid will do the same thing. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m still trying to figure out how I’m going to fit more than one day of strength training in during marathon training. I think the key is to make the 2nd day an arm/abs day so it won’t kill my legs. If there are any exercises that you especially love send them my way ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love the spreadsheet idea!

    P.s. I totally weight trained throughout training for my 70.3 & I think it’s why I hardly got super sore or really tired legs. score!

    That’s a smart idea about making a google doc to pull up on your phone! Good thinking!

    I think it’s a good idea to hold out on CrossFit until after your 70.3–can you imagine swimming, biking, running, strength training, *and* CrossFitting? Yikes!

    I’m kind of obsessed with the organization of that spreadsheet. Such a good idea! Oatmeal looks delicious too…now I’m craving it for dinner!

    Did you find a cross fit gym in Tampa? I recently joined south Tampa fit, which is like a cross fit/ boot camp hybrid gym, and I love it!! You should check it out.

      I”m looking into a box on my side of town. I have a friend who goes to South Tampa Fit and loves it, but it’s just so far from where I live, I’d love to find something that isn’t a 20+ minute drive away.

    I like your treadmill run…it’s easy to remember. ๐Ÿ™‚ And you definitely don’t need to lose any weight, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with admitting you want to shake a few pounds for your wedding day. It’s a BIG day! Maybe that isn’t your goal at all, but I do think some health bloggers are afraid to admit that sometimes!
