Yesterday was busy- it started with a 6:30 am spin class I was subbing, which is about the time I usually workout, but required a much earlier wake up. As much as I grumbled when my alarm went off, I loved getting that burst of energy first thing in the morning.
While L had her [...]

After being cooked for and eating out the last two weeks, I found a renewed energy for cooking again, and came home with a long list of recipes I wanted to make this week.
I’m linking up with Jenn again at Peas and Crayons. Check out what everyone else is eating, too!
I’m also [...]

It’s a rainy week here. The good news is that Texas is relatively cool. The bad news is that thunderstorms are supposed to continue through the weekend, and I am terrified about cycling in the rain at the triathlon. Let’s hope it stops by then!
This week’s What I ate Wednesday is more like what [...]

Before I jump into What I ate Wednesday, I have to say thank you so much for the many encouraging words on my last post. I am so grateful to have connected with many of you all through this blog, and really value your support.
So, it’s Wednesday- time to link up with Jenn at [...]

I got up bright and early yesterday to finish my last 6 miles for the Joggermom Virtual marathon. The “marathon” is for women (moms) of all abilities–you have all of May to complete your 26.2 miles, and there are some great prizes (winners chosen randomly- so no pressure for speed). And registration is open through [...]

Happy Wednesday! I’m linking up with Jen again at Peas and Crayons for “what I ate Wednesday.”
We all woke up early yesterday, thanks to someone working on her 2 year old molars, so we had extra time to make whole wheat blueberry pancakes. I like to top mine with almond butter and banana in [...]

The spin certification is this weekend, and I am doing my best to run through the choreography every day this week. So far, so good… Monday I got to practice in the empty spinning room, and yesterday I used my headphones and practiced on the elliptical. The music is constantly playing on repeat in my [...]

Running: It’s Friday! It’s so nice to be running again. I’m still a little bummed about pulling out of the marathon, but I keep reminding myself that there will be many more opportunities for marathons.
In the meantime, I’m living vicariously through many of you who are training. I am especially excited for Kim who [...]

After weeks of using L as my alarm clock and squeezing in an afternoon or evening workout, I finally made myself get up early yesterday morning and run. It was so worth it– I came back refreshed and energized, despite getting caught in a downpour! I later learned there was a severe thunderstorm [...]

It’s a new day. Thank goodness! After throwing a pity party for myself yesterday and my silly bum ankle, I am ready to make it a better day.
I love linking up with Jen for What I ate Wednesday.
One of the perks is that it motivates me to think about what I’m putting on [...]
