Hot Hot Hot!!

Today was an all around HOT day!


Had big plans for today. Got up...geared up...never really got going haha...

I started out really pumped for my run..and it was a dud.  I ran my regular route and just could.not.get.going. It was struggle.  I think part of the problem was that
a) it was 100000000 degrees outside. I live in Florida. It had rained. Not pretty.
b) i normally eat breakfast 45min before I run.  Lately, I have been trying to just eat a banana...yeah...not workin' for me.
c) I did mad weight lifting the day before.

Needless to say...I ran 3miles in 30min...then walked .25 so I didn't pass out...then ran the rest home. where I marveled that I was still alive.

Distance: 4.4 miles
Time: 46min

You can see the sweat.


So, as I said before, I had a banana before I left.  I usually don't bring a hydro belt with me unless I'm running for over an hour.  I had planned on 5m so it would only be 50min. I actaully randomly decided to take a handheld bottle with about 8oz gatorade.lifesaver. I would have had to hobble into a gas station and beg them for hydration.

When I got back I ate my bfast cookie with:
  • 1/2c oats
  • 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder
  • some organic skim milk
  • 1tbsp pb
  • some walnuts
  • some raisins

Then, I hit up Mother Earth...apparently I love spending money because I can't stay away from this place.  Highlights:
  • synergy! (the "raw material" is a little scary...)
  • primal strips
  • green and black chocolate
  • Better than Peanut Butter (i know...i really shouldn't have...)

I FINALLY got the JUICE BAR! WHOOP WHOOP.  I got a small juice ( I mean SMALL) with:
  • celery
  • spinach
  • and apple (juice or the fruit..not sure)
I tried to be cool and get a green monster haha.  It was KIND OF a green monster.  Sorta. 

That was a nice, refreshing mid-morn snack.

Lunch was a burrito with:
  • pinto beans
  • brown rice
  • whole wheat wrap
  • 1/4 mashed avocado (best part)
  • 1/2 slice gouda
with a side of oikos vanilla greek yog with granola.

I had an odwalla banana nut bar for a snack.  Ok, does anyone else just NOT LIKE these things?  I tried the was ok.  This was also ok.  It kept me full from like 4:30-7 but it tasts too "vitamin-y" for my liking.  I much prefer a cliff bar or larabar or boomi bar.....

I might have gone BACK to Motha Earth for din.  It's similar to a sad whole foods hot bar.  By sad I mean there are 6 choices.  I got 5 of them haha. Not the healthiest but really tasty! 
  • tofu artichoke spinach good.  recipe anyone?
  • 1 black bean manicotti
  • some mac and cheese
  • lots of roasted broccoli with garlic
  • lots of roasted veggies
  • handful of mary's chips for the dip was 1.6lbs..

Dove into some choc for dessert.  I had 4 squares of chocolate:
  • 1 dark choc with rasp and almonds
  • 3 toffee milk chocolate
Love these chocolates because they are low in cals.  One square of the rasp was 25cals...3 of the toffee was 60.  Not too shabby for dessert.


Completely random sidenote.  I was driving today in the middle of nowhere Gainesville and I look to my right...a CVS.  I look to my left...a Walgreens.  WHY?  Why are they always on every street corner right across from one another.  I don't get it.  Wouldn't it make more sense to spread out. are right across the street from your competition.  Seriously.  If someone could enlighten me on their thinking, I'd appreciate it.


Charlie Sheen named his baby BOB.  No offense to the name..but for a baby?!  Like...Bob?  Not even Robert?  Bob is a name you grow into.  Like your name is Robert.  People call you Rob or Bobby.  Then when you are a bit more go for Bob.  A 2 week old named Bob?  Kinda cute...kinda oldmanish.  Sorry to all you baby Bobs out there.
On a serious note..GET BETTER BABY BOB!  Baby Bob is sick :(  Get better soon!!

So so so so sad Private Practice isn't on.  So sad.  However, Taking the Stage is.  Can't wait to hang out with these High Schoolers tonight.  Im cool.

Bloggy World:

RUN over to Angela's Site and watch/read her interview with Kris from Crazy, Sexy, Cancer.  It is beyond inspirational.  Be thankful for each and every day..I know I am!



  1. That hot bar food looks sooo good! Yum. Good for getting out on your run...I missed mine today!

  2. be glad you have a cvs- theyre the best stores in the world.

  3. Stores tend to group together. You will generally see 3-4-5 furniture stores in very close proximity. Same for fast food stores and yes drug stores. I guess it's more the location than the presence or lack of competition.

  4. sounds like one delicious breakfast cookie!

    oh wow - im so jealous you live in florida! great workout!
