Greatly Apologize

My blogging has been lacking as I have been MIA. I apologize. I went home over the weekend and spent some quality time with my family. Now I am trying to survive the last 2 weeks of class and a finals week.

My blogging won’t be much the next few weeks because I am trying to do well in school, trying being the key word. I’m hoping for that 3.5 GPA for the year and have to work really hard to get it.

I’m going to just show you the food pictures taken throughout the last few days!

Quick Questions

Q: Would you prefer I reply to your comments on your blog, or continue the method I’ve been doing which consists of emailing my comments to your email as well as responded back on your comment below it?

Q: Is there anywhere that does webhosting for free? I’m wanting to try wordpress.org instead of .com but obviously I don’t have my own domain address or what not.

Q: If you use wordpress.org, do you like it better? What is the difference really?

Q: Would you like me to do some v-logs(video blogging)? They’ve been pretty popular and I know I love watching peoples v-logs!

Things that make me happy

– having a full belly
– the smell of rain approaching
– storms!

Dinner

 

Ate at applebee’s and had some quesadillas, spinach artichoke dip and 3 cheese penne. Then I spent some time in the bathroom when we got back from food poisoning I presume.

Summer Eats

 

Alright here are some things I want to make/eat over the summer.

– Smoothies and lots of them
– Homemade granola bars for recovery runs (similar to luna bars) I want to find a cheaper alternative.
– Good meals for recovery and pre running (need your suggestions)
– Lots and lots of fruit

This Summer series is really for suggestions from readers! So give me some good recipes for good runner’s meals! 🙂

 

Apologies

Sorry my posts haven’t been very detailed. But I promise to take the summer series and go into more detail once I get suggestions and actually have a set plan of action for what the summer will consist of! I’ll share the recipes and ideas from everyone as well!

I’ve just been really busy with school since it’s coming to a close and school comes first! But once school is over and after I do some traveling then I’ll be all yours and running of course!

Q&A:

Yesterday on my formspring I was asked …..

What bands do you listen to?

“Oh man, my music taste is all over the place. For running I listen to upbeat music, usually catchy tunes from the radio so I don’t get bored. Favorite band of all time is Copeland. Love John Mayer too! Mayday Parade, Parachute, Taylor Swift, Jack’s Mannequin, Ghosts & Vodka, Breathe Carolina, Never Shout Never….I could go on and on!”

Stay tuned in the future and I’ll show you my running playlist 🙂
