A Confession for Monday…

I have a confession to make. On most Mondays I have the hardest time getting back into my work week eating routine. Why am I always so hungry on Monday?? It drives me nuts sometimes. Today, overall, I did an ok job getting back into the swing of things. Here is how the day went,…… Continue reading A Confession for Monday…

Training and Eating

Ahh, Wednesday. I am over half way through my work week! I feel very lucky that I love my job and [almost] look forward to going to work every day. But there are times (like this week) where my mind floods with thoughts of what I could be doing if I was not working. But…… Continue reading Training and Eating

Mega August

Today we gave the month of August and the training we want to do a name. From here on out, August will be known as Mega August. It is going to be awesome. (or that is what we are telling ourselves.) Breakfast this morning was oatmeal again with a spoonful of Barney Butter: The oat…… Continue reading Mega August



So the Olympics have only been on TV for four days (I am not counting the opening ceremonies – although I guess I should, because I stayed up really late watching those, too) and I am exhausted! I cannot go to sleep if the Olympics are on. I used to always be on vacation when…… Continue reading Tomorrow

Running in the rain…

All day at work I kept an eye on my office window wondering what my post – work run would be like. It was not looking all that great. My afternoon snack was a handful of unsalted peanuts and a couple of dark chocolate chips. (So good!) On the way home from work I sipped…… Continue reading Running in the rain…


Monday Morning

I took part of Monday morning off from work. The plan was to go for a run, but last night I stayed up way too late watching Downton Abbey and did not get to sleep until after 2 AM. (!?!?!?) So this morning I took it easy. I slept in a little bit, until 8:30…… Continue reading Monday Morning


2012 – Day Six

Happy Friday, everyone. I cannot figure out why this week seemed SO LONG to me when I only worked three days. Oh well, at least the work week has come to an end. I have a long “To Do” list this weekend and I cannot wait to start crossing things off of it. As for…… Continue reading 2012 – Day Six

7 miles plus

Good afternoon bloggies. How’s your day going? I am loving having the day off from work. I had a really leisurely morning of reading, watching the news and enjoying coffee and breakfast. Eventually I got myself on the road (literally) and I ran 7.1 miles this afternoon. It was 45 degrees – which turned out…… Continue reading 7 miles plus



In case you haven’t figured it out yet – weekend mornings are super special to me. During the week days I wake up at 5:30 and do my best to get out of the house by 6AM for my commute to work. I am not a morning person, so I do not enjoy most mornings…… Continue reading Relaxing
