IMG_5185

Hello, friends! I hope you’re all having a great day so far! I’m using the government holiday as an opportunity to see a bunch of my local AnneTheRD clients that normally need to meet outside of business hours. Perfect! As for the weekend, it was nice and low key – Matt was out of town on a boy’s trip (in San Diego – so jealous), so I Continue Reading …

Recent Food & Workout Highlights

Good afternoon, my friends! I’m so glad you guys enjoyed my “How to Eat a Better Breakfast” post earlier this week! Here’s another tip: did you know that you can add an egg to oatmeal to make it more filling/protein-packed? I’m not talking about savory-style oats – I simply follow the same recipe as for my Perfect Microwave Banana Continue Reading …

A Freezing Run, Lunch & Teaching!

Well, my friends, I did it: I braved the extreme cold here in DC yesterday and got in a run. A solo run, even! Apparently wanting a run to be over quickly leads to speed. I’ll have to remember that. ;) Brrrr… no photos, all business for this one. Got it done! As for today, enjoying a rest day. Back to running tomorrow! Continue Reading …

With love for Sardines (and our adorable cat)

I’ve written about this before, but, I think it’s about time I gross you guys out again. I’m just going to say it: I love sardines. But there’s more to sardines than just grossing out anyone else who is dining with you (though I often eat them for lunch just so I don’t have Matt gagging next to me) – they are also nutritional Continue Reading …

Only 1.5 days now stand between me and my first full marathon in Richmond! Eek! I’m so ready for it to be here already. This morning, I headed out for a 2 mile shake out run. Tomorrow will be a rest day, and then Saturday, it’s go time! It was weird to “just” run 2 miles – and also to run by myself! I can’t even remember the last Continue Reading …

The heat seems to have returned to DC, but I’ve been pretending it hasn’t. Earlier this week, I was craving hot oatmeal! I whipped up a batch of my Perfect Microwave Banana Oatmeal (<—click for recipe), and since I wanted to add a lot of toppings I decreased the oats & milk to 1/3 cup instead of 1/2 cup. On top, I put some fresh Continue Reading …

Hello from the road on the way to North Carolina! Matt and I are headed down to Chapel Hill for the weekend because one of my grad school friends is getting married tomorrow in Raleigh. I can’t wait to be back in our old stomping grounds and to see my grad school BFFs! I started my Friday with another morning swim – loving swimming lately as Continue Reading …
