Recently, I’ve found myself consuming A LOT of sugar! I’ve started feeling the effects and need to clean up my act. I’m not sure counting calories is going to work for me long term again so I’m going to be food journaling here for a while
Fridays at work have become Bagel Fridays and I joined in today. I got my favorite combo- asiago cheese bagel- egg&cheese
I snacked on trail mix and on and off most of the day… Mmm chocolate!
For lunch I heated up some brown rice, broccoli and tofu
Dinner was egg muffins and toast with earth balance.
For the egg muffins I mixed12 eggs, chopped mushrooms and tomatoes and cheese and baked them in cupcake molds for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. I made a bunch so I have quick breakfasts to go this week!!
I also snacked on grapes and coconut juice which are unpictured.

I really do love tattoos. For a while now I have wanted a Hamsa.
In a few words, this is what a Hamsa is:
Be gone, Negativity
It only took about a half hour or so and then we were done! I am so happy with how it came out!
Monday I busted out a chilly 6 miles. It was nice to have some blue skies and sun along for the ride! It was a bit slippery in areas and some of the roads were still snow covered. I finished 6 miles in 1:00 with an average pace of 9:59 min/mile
Tuesday, the grey skies returned and I pumped out 2 miles. It was a but warmer then Monday but Still rather cool out. I finished 2 miles in 18:38 with an average pace of 9:17
Thursday’s run was ROUGH, it was a lot warmed but I forgot to take my inhaler before my run and with 5 minutes I knew that was going to be a problem. I could barely take a deep breath the whole run which really tired me out. By the end of the 5 miles I could barely breath and almost passed out but thankfully within seconds of taking my inhaler I was much better. Once I could breath again I downed some water and Got my plank on. I finished 5 miles in 49:39 with an average pace of 9:55
I was busy all day saturday So I got my long run in today, sunday. It was almost FIFTY degrees! I wore a t shirt and cops and was rather warm! WHOA! Spring may be on its way after all! I ran an old local route that is an out and back. I ate 2 gu chomps halfway through and sipped on water from my camelback throughout the run. I finished 9 miles in 1:25:50 with an average pace of 9:32. Then it was PLANK TIME! We are up to 1:00 minute in the challenge, by the end of the week its going to start getting tough!!
Im having a small obsession with 30 day fitness challenges. I didn’t want one that was too overwhelming that set me up to fail so I started with a plank challenge and a few of my coworkers have joined in!
Today I decided I wanted a little bit more so I started searching for something to add on. I came across this awesome website that has everything I am looking for! They have a bunch of Challenges!
One of my coworkers and I are taking on the ABS Challenge. I also plan on recruiting more people… LIKE YOU! JOIN US!!!
I just did DAY 1 a few minutes ago! I promise to motivate you!
Sunday I woke up slightly hungover from celebrating the birth of my husband, the BIG THREE OH, the night before. I must say I think I found a hangover cure juice because I felt awesome when I finished drinking it!
half a lime, 1 apple, celery, kale, cucumber, ginger
for lunch I had a divine and always perfect, pb&j
I needed a snack a bit later while watching the olympics. You get very hungry watching people do crazy stuff on ice and snow slopes! colby and crackers!
After hours of watching the Olympics because thats what I like to do.. dinner time arrived!!! Salad with peppers, carrots and chick peas and some “organic” boxed macaroni and cheese… cause sometimes you just need some powdered cheese hahah
What was the BEST thing you ate last weekend!?

I like having fun with my hair! Especially now that it’s short!
On Friday I went shorter and more asymmetrical! It is now shorter in the back and longer on the left front. I also added some peekaboo purplish redish (depending on the lighting) highlights on the longer left side. I LOVE how fun and sassy it is
I started yesterday, who’s joining me!!!
Monday morning before work I got a 5 mile run in before work. It WASNT snowing, the sun was out! but it was COLLLDDDD!
I finished in 49:52 just skirting in under 10 minutes miles- 9:58 per mile average.
Tuesday I went on a night run. I stopped on the way home from work to grab drinks with a friend it haven’t seen in a while. By the time I got home the sun was almost set so I let the dogs out and quickly got out the door. I was dark within minutes.
My headlamp REALLY came in handy
I ran 2 miles in 17:43 with an average pace of 8:50! BOOM
Heres another headlamp selfie…
Thursday was another snow day for me! I of course NEVER let that stop me, I love running in the snow! For this run, I went out during a break in the snow when it was raining… I wore my go pro to play around with my chest strap and test out some time lapse action…. Here is my entire 4 mile run in less then 2 minutes
I finished this 4 mile run in 36:48 with an average pace of 9:11!
Saturday morning it was SNOWING again! I still love the snow and since I love to run in it I was happy! However, the snow was kind of an icy mix and it was like snow pellets hitting me in the face most of the run I did my usual 8 mile loop around town and felt pretty great the whole time. I finished the 8 mile run in 1:18:42 with an average pace of 9:50.
I also learned bandanas are awesome for winter running. They keep your neck and face warm but you can still BREATH when its up over your nose and mouth! WIN!
I’ve been having some fun with my Go Pro today
