The Hottest 10 Miler

I was originally planning to bag my long run for the week; I didn’t end up doing it while we were in the Outer Banks because, to be honest, I didn’t feel like it! Running for me is a happy, positive thing, and getting up crazy early on my vacation to run 10 miles by myself sounded like the opposite of fun. It was also insanely humid there. So Continue Reading …

A New Easy Breakfast Idea + Farmers Market Fun + Shoulder Mobility Moves

Hey guys! Before I get into today’s content, a heads up that a few of my posts have gotten a little photo upgrade for Pinterest (are you on Pinterest?

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Power Bowl

Hey friends! We had a bunch of sweet potato/yellow pepper hash leftover from Mother’s day brunch at our place, so I threw together an easy Mexican themed sweet potato and black bean power bowl for lunch yesterday.

Recent Eats

Hey friends! There’s been a lot of fitness talk over here lately and not a whole lot of food. Let’s discuss some recent eats of note, shall we?

Adventures in Food + Fitness

Happy Wednesday! It’s a cold and very windy one over here – so lame after the gorgeous warm weather we were teased with earlier this week! I even busted out a sun dress yesterday and a skirt Monday – and now today it’s back to scarves and hats and they are predicting snow for Friday. What the heck, weather? Oh well – I guess it’s a good excuse to Continue Reading …

Eats/Exercise + NEDA Week

Happy Wednesday, my friends! I’m proud because I dragged myself out of bed yesterday and to the track – in the RAIN. Full disclosure is that it wasn’t raining when I got up and got dressed, and by the time it started, I was already ready to go and walking out the door – bailing at that point seemed silly. ;) As always, what seemed like a Continue Reading …
