Adventures in Food + Fitness

IMG_0605

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 …

Thai Coconut Chicken Soup Recipe

I have a great new recipe to share with you guys today – Thai Coconut Chicken Soup! It’s veggie-packed, quick and easy to make, and seriously delicious. I served it to a couple friends last week and they gave it thumbs up, too! If you’re vegetarian or vegan, have no fear – you can easily modify this recipe! Just use firm cubed tofu instead Continue Reading …

NYC Girl’s Weekend Adventures

IMG_0693

Hello my friends! I’m back in DC after a fun girl’s weekend in New York City! It had been YEARS since my whole UNC grad school crew got together – smaller groups of us have met up for trips more recently but we were always missing a couple of the girls. So glad we finally made it work for a full reunion! My heart was happy seeing all these Continue Reading …

Dinner Date + Morning Workouts

easy soup and salad dinner for guests

Hello from the train on the way to NYC! I’m heading up for a girls weekend reunion with my UNC grad school dietitian friends – I can’t wait to see them! This is the first time we’ve been able to get our whole group together in years – long overdue. :) Speaking of good friends, last night I had my college friends Kathleen and Sarah over for dinner. Continue Reading …

Postmates Adventures

Thank you to Postmates for sponsoring this post! Funny story: a few years ago, Matt and I were at a wedding with a bunch of my grad school friends. We had all just spent hours sweating up a storm on the dance floor and decided to order some late night food. The only thing we could think of that delivered was pizza. Matt said: “I have the Dominos Continue Reading …

Eats/Exercise + NEDA Week

how to run in the rain

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 …

Five: A Random Blog Survey

5 minute no bake PB granola bars

A couple weeks ago, my friend Julie posted a “five” themed blog survey on her site and I thought it would be fun to mix it up today and play along with a similar variation. I’d love if you guys did the same – either in the comments or on your own blogs! Thanks to Julie for the idea – and for the graphic below. :) Five: a Random Blog Survey! Continue Reading …

Weekend Running Adventures

Hi friends! We had quite a treat this past weekend – randomly warm temperatures. Cue the run dates – hooray!! My friends Kathleen, Sarah, and I met up for a run on Saturday morning and seriously the ENTIRE city was out there with us. It was so fun – everyone was clearly as eager as we were to enjoy the spring-like temperatures (60 degrees?!), Continue Reading …

Ice-Free Track + Duke’s Grocery

washington lee high school track workout

Friends – I finally made it back to the track yesterday! Hooray for no ice, snow, slush, freezing rain, etc! It was quite cold (low 30’s with windchill in the upper 20’s), but nothing crazy, and the sun was even out by the time we finished up at 7:30. :) We had a great workout – the coaches had us do the following: 1200 (3 laps) rest a Continue Reading …
