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!

IMG_5139

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 …

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 …

Hello my friends! I had a fun weekend – my friend Jessica (who you guys will recognize as one of my bridesmaids from our wedding!) was in town visiting for our mutual friend Heidi’s wedding. It was so great to see her! :) Jess arrived on Friday and we had a low key dinner at our apartment with Matt before heading out to meet the bride and Continue Reading …
