New Year, Better You

I can’t believe it’s almost 2017! What are you doing to ring in the new year? We have some wonderful friends coming in to town to help us celebrate! We plan to go to a local Bar & Grill that has a great elevated patio that looks down upon downtown Denver so we can enjoy the fireworks without all the frenzy (we’re old like that, okay?). Among the celebrations I have been thinking of my […]

Powercat Paint Run

I’m embarrassed to say I have not been eating healthy lately! It was Daniel’s birthday on the 12th and his best friend’s mom baked him the most amazing chocolate cherry cake! I probably ate a good third or half of it…. whoops. Then my parents bought him cupcakes and a mini german chocolate cake. I also had more than my fair share of those. And then I saw oatmeal cookies for 99 cents at the […]

The Opposite of Meal Planning & Upcoming Race!

Happy Thursday! Here’s a two-for-one update! Tuesday: Breakfast, I took a banana to my first class and then snacked on some cashews in my second class for the morning. For lunch I enjoyed my left over Chipotle veggie bowl. After my afternoon class, I was hungry and snacked on a brownie. To get some of the sweets out of the house I took some brownies and cookies over to my mom. But don’t worry, I […]

Successful Day!

It’s a very dreary day here in Kansas. The bright side (haha), is that the rain/mist seems to have eliminated the allergens in the air temporarily. I just now sneezed for the first time today at 4:30! That’s a record. Yesterday was pretty successful overall for meals and exercise. I am super sore today to prove it. What I ate: Breakfast: I was running late for class so I made a fruit smoothie to-go: banana, strawberries, […]

It’s a New Blog!

Ok, it’s not a new blog. But it is a new location. As in, I’ve switched over to the self-hosted world! So, hopefully I don’t lose all of my wonderful followers. WordPress is very vague on how my followers from wordpress.com can view my new wordpress.org site. But, if you’re reading this and want to continue to follow me, just to be safe, click my new follow button on the right side of the screen […]

Every song’s like new shoes, salads, cookin’ in the kitchen, running, exercise, this is healthy living..

We don’t care, we’re making pasta in our dreams! Oh, that’s not the lyrics to the Lorde song? My bad. So where has the time gone?! I think about you all every day! And my laziness. And the fact that I should blog more. And workout more. And that I’m a failure. Ok, I’m being a little melodramatic. But I seriously need to step up my game. Can anybody lend me their time management skills? […]

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It’s OCTOBER! The best month ever. Fall is my favorite time of year.  Leaves change hues, pumpkins are everywhere, and mild weather make for a beautiful month. I still need to buy a pumpkin. And make/buy fall decorations. It’s happening. So I’m not sure where the time went yesterday but 11PM came all too soon and I didn’t get a chance to blog.  It may have been due to the 4 episodes of Breaking Bad […]

Pumpkin Patch

Our outdoorsy day took a little different turn than what I mentioned yesterday.  We did go on a great run. FOUR miles! Instead of running around the park the whole time we swung around it and then up a hill. It was tough and once we made it up the hill we had to walk a little.  We went two miles and then turned around and ran the same route back.  It was a nice […]

Back In Action

Wow. What a whirlwind week.  Let me recap: Ok, I failed at keeping track of my calories… however, I am losing weight! I think the last time I said my weight was here back on September 10th where I claimed I was 129 again.  Ok, realistically I was probably at 129.4 or something. But this morning I was at exactly 129.0 which I haven’t been in a loooonnnngggg time.  I hope to get down to 128 […]
