A few weeks ago, I started a series on understanding our cravings. If you missed it, the first piece was about addiction and you can catch up here.
The second reason we can crave food (especially salt and sugar) has to do with the energetics of food [...]

Have I mentioned that there’s a half marathon I’d like to do in two weeks?
I haven’t made it a focus or “goal” as I had no idea how I’d feel by then ( about 18-19 weeks pregnant.) In my first pregnancy, I ran double digits most weekends up through 23 weeks and felt great. [...]

You don’t have to celebrate Valentine’s Day to use it as an excuse to make something extra yummy!

As I was snapping pictures of my eats yesterday for WIAW, I realized I have been a bottomless pit of hunger lately. I missed several handfuls or spoonfuls of things here and there because I just couldn’t keep up with it all. Maybe it’s a baby growth spurt?
I also ran 5 miles [...]

So let’s catch up.

This week’s workouts:

This has been one of my lowest mileage running weeks, thanks to the never ending snow! I was planning to run Monday and Wednesday, and both days we had 6+ inches of snow, some ice on Wednesday, schools closed, and even our gym closed both days.
So I made due with some elliptical (in our [...]

Just because I won’t be running marathons for awhile, doesn’t mean I can’t make plans, right?

We started off our week with another snow day and got hit with it again last night! I’m trying hard not to complain about winter. But ugh, when both parents work from home most days, it gets tricky… those few hours in preschool make a big difference.
However, playing in the snow and building snow [...]

I’m not sure how it took me so long to try a trail race. Since I can get competitive with myself on road races, I figured pregnancy is the perfect time to venture into trail races and just enjoy the scenery.
Well… I think I may be hooked. This was SO much fun! Don’t get [...]
