I had great eats today!


Tried Almond Butter for the first time!! Not sure how I feel about it yet. Maybe it’s just the brand that I’m iffy on, maybe other almond butter tastes better.



I forgot to say that yesterday before my run I had an incredible Banana Bread muffin that my daddy made! It was yumm!! Perfect for right before a run.



Double Deli Sandwich with ham and turkey as well as american and swiss cheese. Cheese tots and fried green beans. I didn’t eat all the tots because I traded more of them for more fried green beans, sooo good!! And I only ate half my sandwich. It’s too filling for the whole thing.


IMAG0139 <—delicious!


Had 9 miles planned but only did 8.5 because poor Megan is still having shin pain. I hope she gets better!! Did the first 5 miles with Alex and last 3.5 with Megan! I split up each run on my garmin but I added the times together to get the average pace.


here’s the two runs broken down:

5 miles in 41:06 @ 8:13 pace

mileage time
mile 1 8:23
mile 2 8:31
mile 3 8:26
mile 4 7:58
mile 5 7:46

3.5 miles in 31:43 @ 9:03 pace

mileage time
mile 1 9:12
mile 2 9:09
mile 3 9:02
mile 3.5 4:20

total: 8.5 miles in 1:12:49 @ 8:34 pace


Dinner was incredible!!! They had White Chicken Nachos and the recipe was from a place in St Charles 🙂 I also had a piece of ham!


I absolutely love black beans!! They are so yummy. I think those are the only beans I really like.

1 1/2 cups of Orange Juice



At 8:30pm I made a green monster!!

2 handfuls of spinach
lots of frozen mangoes, papaya, pineapple
fresh strawberries

Better than the one yesterday but really need some fruit juice and sherbet would be good too! I’ll have to try that this weekend and get a small thing of sherbet since it won’t keep in the freezer.



Would you like a weekend recap? Good.



Delicious Quaker Oatmeal Squares. The cinnamon flavor!!



This was my first time trying the oatmeal squares. I’ve seen them around a lot and thought they’ve always looked good. Well now I know that they taste just as good! 🙂


I went to check out the Yurbuds kiosk in the mall around lunchtime and got to try out the product. I want to say right now that if you have not tried out these earbuds then you have to rush out and do so! They are guaranteed not to fall out of your ears and I have ran with them twice so far. I took them on my 4 mile progressive run where I was running extremely fast and they didn’t even move then I ran with them on the treadmill for 3 miles and usually headphones fall out of my ears more on the treadmill than the road and they still stayed!! Check them out


They are also trying to help raise $1 million dollars for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and are going to donate $10 from your purchase to the foundation!


Had to do my 4 mile progressive run, but I was more excited to do the run so I could try out the yurbuds in action!

4 miles in 20:10 @ 7:32 pace

mileage time
mile 1 7:49
mile 2 7:51
mile 3 7:08
mile 4 7:20


yummy spaghetti with meat sauce for dinner!! And a piece of garlic bread, but i ate it before the picture could be taken!



Watched Blindside with the family. I love this movie. It was my second time seeing it and still amazed me. So funny and a must see. But you can make your own decision to see it! 🙂



Came back to school and was not happy about that.

The drive home was really nice. Good music was on the radio and new songs actually. The weather was great. I got back to school and hit up the grocery store to get something for dinner and grab milk. I bought ravioli, easy mac and milk.

Once I got to my dorm I had to make 2 trips from my car of which I had to park far away to bring in all of my stuff.


Unpacked a few things and went to the rec center to do my 3 miles on the treadmill. I was supposed to do my 9 mile long run but since it was already dark out I am doing that today and switched my workouts for the day.

Once The Amazing Race came on the TV I started cruising on the treadmill and it made the time pass so much faster even though it was difficult running and reading subtitles that sometimes didn’t make any sense haha.

3 miles in 25:21 @ 8:27 pace

The time was probably faster because the treadmill starts counting before you even get up to speed and start running.


First Green Monster

I came back and did my first attempt at a green monster

1 cup milk
2 cups spinach
1 whole banana
4 small frozen strawberries
4 frozen pineapple chunks

Definitely had too much banana but was still good. Next time I want to use a juice instead of milk to get more fruit flavor.

With my green monster I had the Full Circle ravioli I picked up at the store for $0.89.

P3280008 P3280009


Wish the ravioli would’ve been meat filling instead of cheese. They weren’t very good but I still ate most of it. However I was still hungry so I had some combo crackers.

You can never go wrong with Combo’s!

Then I just waited for alex to get back from the Alabama relays!

Q: How was your weekend?
