Tues-Thurs Recap

Hi friends!  Sorry I have been MIA-- I have been really busy lately :)

Tuesday, Demetri Martin (the comedian) came to UF to perform. HE was SO FUNNY!  He did a funny skit on purposing to your girlfriend lol.

So, I realized that I have been crazy about food lately.  I mean crazy.  It has been controlling my every thought..psycho I know.  So..I decided to just highlight my food from now on.  I was really lacking when it came to intuitive eating.  I was eating snacks just because it was snack time.  So...I needed to chill with the whole food thing.  Needless to say, I feel 100 times better :) 


  • sushi!!  I got wakame salad, miso soup and a tasty roll
  • salmon salad wrap: canned salmon, light mayo, flatout wrap, lettuce, tomato, avocado
  • juicy pear that I dropped on the ground so I ate around that part...whoops...
  • odwalla c-booster juice

Thurs Highlights:

I've been keeping my oatmeal nice and simple lately so I had
  • 1/2c rolled oats
  • 1 cup water
  • a little less than brown sugar

I had earlier posted pics of my pomegranted water. It sorta tasted like Body Odor.  I know that's a weird explanation but that was the after taste. Not pleasant.

So on my search for tasty sparkling water, I found Poland Springs Raspberry Lime.  Delicious!  Had a nice, clean taste with no scary after taste.  Thanks Poland!

I also had Ethnic Gourmet Pad Thai with Tofu.  It was tasty.  Could have used more spice.  I recommend getting real pad thai though.  It just didn't have enough heat for me and the tofu was a little chewy although the noodles help up really really nicely.

I like the SmartOnes Rice Noodles taste better although they don't heat up as well so...choices.choices.

So in an effort to not be so crazy about eating, I got a portion controlled chocolate chip cookie :)  My sweet tooth was completely satisfied and I felt in control.


My knee feels a lot better.  I am pretty sure it is my IT Band that is irritating me.  I decided to run today so I did

Distance: 2.5miles
Time: 23:10 min

I might do the 10k instead of the 15k on April 25th.  I don't want to be hobbling to the finish line, I'd rather finish strong and not have any knee problems.

I have some new eats planned for tomorrow!  Can't wait!


Did anyone watch Real Housewives of NY on Tues??  Really Kelly Bensimonne?  She was running, in the street, in a studded t-shirt, with her hair down.  LOL.  OK.

Have a great night everyone :)


  1. That sparkling water looks amazing, yum! Hope your IT band feels better...glad you were able to run today.

  2. Hey meghan, I was looking into starting to run (so I can get into shape) and I haven't ever really been a runner before... when you started getting into shape and being healthier, how much would you run in the beginning? Hopefully that wasn't too confusing... lol. Thanks for your help!

  3. Hey Dani,
    Well. When I first started running I was pretty out of shape. I would run for about 10-15min outside. Now, you def don't have to do this there are lots of running plans you can follow:

    1. Alternate between running and walking. You can do 1min walking, 30sec running for your desired time or you can switch every song that comes onto your ipod if you think you can keep running for about 3 min, then walk 3min, run 3min, ect.

    2. I went straight into running and did time running at first, so, 12 min, then 15min, then about 20min. Once I hit 20min, I started to do distance running, so I want to be able to run 2 miles. Now, I do distance running- so I run about 10 miles during the week and on the weekends anywhere from 7-10 miles for about a total of 18-20miles per week. I also do a combo of distance and time running so for instance, 5 miles in 50 min.

    I would def suggest building up your endurance by alternating between running and walking. Then set a time goal, such as running for 15min straight. Then set a distance goal such as running 2 miles. Then set a time and distance goal, so 2 miles in

    Hope this helped! Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Here is a great site to help you track you distance if you do not have a distance watch :)
