So I've written and trashed and rewritten this blog post a few times. It's not even a tell-all or anything. I'm just trying to get back into the swing of things here! I took about two weeks off from any serious marathon training and blogging to take care of some things at work. In that … Continue reading Catching Up With My Marathon Training
I'm back at it again! After a late night grocery shopping trip I have all of my smoothie ingredients for the week. I also got too lazy to blog today so I vlogged again. It's Sunday funday and I need a day off, too! If you have any recipes you'd like me to try, or if … Continue reading Getting Started With Green Smoothies for Breakfast
On Wednesday I started my first fitness boot camp since...well...boot camp. It was an all women's group led in a suburb of Seattle, about a ten minute drive away. At first I thought it would be too much -- a commute before a commute to work, especially in the direction of rush hour traffic. However, … Continue reading Fitness Friday: Did Recovery Always Take This Long?
I figured that I'd get my long swim in today so I started the day with two bananas to power up! I generally just have one, but today I doubled up in anticipation for my workout... ...but then I twisted my ankle. 😦 I don't even have a cool story! I decided to take a … Continue reading Paleo Day 17…Twisted Ankle, Burritos Aren’t Paleo
Started my training day off with a very light snack...a banana. It never gives me a stomachache and I never feel like hurling during a workout when I eat it. Proceeded with a strength training workout, followed by a run...I was a little bit on the tired side to start. If there was a way … Continue reading Paleo Day 16…Big Eats For A Big Training Day
Started off my day with a different type of scramble this time...onions, bell peppers, and roasted green peppers with a side of potatoes! Then went to visit a friend. She was gracious enough to share her blood oranges with me. It was so sweet and tasty! I will have to hunt down the farmer's market … Continue reading Paleo Day 15…Fish Tacos and Too Much of a Good Thing
Sunday started off without a hitch. It was a mild sunny morning and I was sitting in my boyfriend's backyard enjoying some fresh strawberries, a crisp glass of water, and a popular book called The Primal Blueprint. Figured that it'd be nice to read a few pages from it since I'm following a very similar … Continue reading Paleo Day 14…Easter Sunday Cheats
So lately, we've been having quite the urge for sweets. Paleo desserts are hard to come by out in the wild (heehee!) but we've been testing out some recipes to see if we could get something that was easy to make and tasty. We finally did! Here, we made some tasty chocolate pudding. It was … Continue reading Paleo Chocolate Pudding And Fruit Dip
Spending the weekend at my boyfriend's house generally makes it a culinary challenge, since I don't prepare all of the food I eat. However, since he's on paleo too, it's a smidge easier. I started the day with a huge bag of almonds, cranberries, and raisins. We were boiling eggs for Easter and making some … Continue reading Paleo Day 13…Pre-Holiday Festivities, Breaking Bread
The day started a bit later than usual. I think I was finally up and at it by 11am. Shant and I were up really late last night trying to make a paleo strawberry souffle. (We failed with flying colors.) When I was finally ready to tackle the day I decided that it was probably … Continue reading Paleo Day 12…Rungry, So Now We Feast!
