I am so incredibly happy that it’s clementine season.  I love those giant five-pound bags they sell at the store!


Henry has also developed an obsession with clementines. To get him off bottles, I started bringing him up a snack in the morning (because I used to bring him a bottle). It’s usually a slice of cheese or a piece of fruit. Clementines are his favorite, and when he sees them, he yells, “ORAG! ORAG! ORAG!” and jumps up and down wildly in the crib (It’s so fun to watch his language explode recently – earlier, he told me to ‘sit down;’ I was floored!).


So this was my breakfast.


Eggs with spinach, red pepper, cheese




Guess what?


I made it to the gym this morning.


This is huge because I have been majorly, majorly slacking over the last two weeks.  Far more off days than on.  Far.  I wrote last week about how my knees were bothering me on longer runs, so I was avoiding jogs (but I think I’m good to go on that now – thankfully).  And my pectoral muscle is strained (I think? I have a doctor’s appointment scheduled in December to make sure it’s not something else), which eliminates yoga, swimming, and kettlebells.  It’s kind of meh because I was really hoping to do more, well, yoga, swimming, and kettlebells after finishing my race.  As a result, I’ve been couchin’ it and doing a whole lot of very little. 


It was kind of nice for a while, but I eventually started to feel like a sloth, so I’m going to try to get back into it.   Hence, the 30-odd minutes on the elliptical at the gym while reading a book.

For my fellow triathlon fans, Meghann just posted a great blog wrapping up her thoughts on training for an Ironman.  I thought it was a great read!


I have a post on Coach Marni coming up tomorrow.  Finally!

    Your breakfast looks so good! The melted cheese on the eggs — yum!

    Happy World Kindness Day!

      Clementines are delish! Haven’t had any yet this year.

      With your injury do you find you can still bike with comfort or is that out too? I find biking is a good way to get some cardio in when other types are off the table!

    I was just thinking that clementines sound good; I guess I need to go out and buy a bag!

    yes to clementines!!! I love how they’re so tiny so you can eat a couple at a time

    I love clementines! They are so good, and nice to snack on.

  • Sara @ LovingOnTheRun November 13, 2013, 3:50 pm

    I love love love clementines! We are traveling and my parents have had them at their house the last two times we’ve been there and I’ve eaten probably half of them!

    Whenever I smell the clementine or see the 5 lb. bag I automatically think Christmas.

  • Taylor @ Singletrackedmind November 13, 2013, 5:02 pm

    Pretty sure every day should be world kindness day.

    Schlepping out of the house after work — will look for an opportunity to pass on a kindness.

    I’m with you on those clementines! I had 3 this afternoon at work and in addition to them being delicious, I love how the citrusy scent perks me up. I’ll definitely be getting my fill of them this season. Congrats on making it to the gym!! I hope everything goes ok at your appointment. You don’t have time for injuries! 🙂

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed November 13, 2013, 10:42 pm

    I’m loving clementines lately too! Good job getting to the gym 🙂

    Super random, but what toaster do you have? Your toast always looks really good.
