September 2008


I sure felt like a VIP at dinner tonight! For Jenna's farewell dinner, we went to her old place of employment--which happens to be this AMAZING Hawaiian Fusion restaurant called Roy's.  All the managers came over to say hello and the waiters treated us SO well.  They even decorated our table! Me, Meghann, Jenna, and [...]



I'm going to heed your advice (and my own common sense) and take another day off from running.... yes, that's two days without running in a row. Maybe some people can't understand this, but to me--two days without running is like torture.   Even though I'm going to lay off my favorite high impact workout [...]


Good morning! I am SO happy it's Thursday.  I kind of live for the weekends! :) Plus, tonight I'm having dinner with Jenna and Meghann, which is always a good time with good eats.   Update on the leg/running situation:  Many of you have asked me what exactly is wrong with my leg.  Well--I'm not [...]


I Miss You

Dear Running: It's only been a day, but I already miss you.  I wish I could go on a nice, long run--but I can't.  I'll lay in bed tonight wishing I had a visit with you, dreaming of the wind in my face and the concrete under my feet.  Oh yes-- that's exactly why I [...]



We're running out of groceries! I haven't been eating any meat lately because we're ALL OUT!  So, I had a vegetarian lunch. Two pieces of WW toast, 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, celery, and cantaloupe. Earlier, I munched on some trailmix... And a Blueberry Z-Bar.  This is the last of the Z-Bars I bought from [...]


Right to the Point

Good morning! It's so beautiful and crisp out, with just a slight breeze in the air.  I'm quite excited for the nice autumn weather (yes, even in Florida)!   I wanted something simple and comforting for breakfast this morning, so I made classic oatmeal (and coffee, obviously!). My oatmeal contained:   1/2 cup oatmeal 1/2 [...]


Rookie Mistake

After my 6.0 miler today, I made a serious rookie mistake... I thought I could get by without a snack before dinner.  Seriously, I have no idea why I thought this would be a good idea.   I ended up shaking, starving, and sick to my stomach by the time I plated dinner. After slamming [...]


First Dance Song?

The great debate continues... Future Husband just called me to tell me he is STILL torn about what our 1st dance song should be.  We've been talking about this for months, but can't make up our minds.   Here are the two finalists:   Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat "Lucky":  A beautiful song we both [...]


Bigger is Better

Good morning! I took an early lunch break today because... boy oh boy... I was hungry!  My extremely disgusting mid-day snack didn't hold me over very well. I'm sorry if you're a fan of the Chocolate Mint Jocalot bars, but this seriously grossed me out.  The first few bites were fine... but I nearly choked [...]


French Waffles

GOOD MORNING, blog land! First of all, I just wanted to say that I really appreciate each and every one of you who takes the time to read this little blog.  I learn so much from you guys, both from your comments and your own blogs (which I always read, even if I don't comment [...]


Hamster on a Wheel

The elliptical machine frustrates me SO MUCH.  I try to do a "cardio" day one a week to (1) give my legs a break; and (2) prevent mental burn out from excessive running.    HOWEVER, I just feel like a hamster on a wheel.  And my heart rate rarely reaches 150 bpm, so I'm not [...]


The Early Bird Gets Hungry Earlier

My whole eating schedule is thrown off today... I had breakfast at 6:45 (about 45 minutes earlier than normal), I had my mid-morning snack at 9:30, and I had lunch at 11:20.  ARG!   Mid-Morning Snack   My mid-morning snack consisted of frozen grapes (these always remind me of Posh Spice because once I read [...]

No Walking Permitted

I got a little sucked into several episodes of Bridezillas (those girls are seriously ridiculous) and before I knew it.... it was 4:30 and I hadn't been on a run yet! ECK!    I quickly headed out the door with a serious goal in mind:  4 miles, no walking!  It was a nice, achievable goal [...]
