Catch Up

I forgot to post my lunch Thursday. I had some red baron pizza.


Then on Friday I tried the new Pretzel M&M’s. Let’s just say….I wasn’t a fan.

Onto Saturday

Had my off day for the week so I did not run.


Went to the mall and visited the nike outlet where I got a new tank top. I really want more nike sports bras but they were still pricey.

Then went to Burlington Coat Factory where I found a nike sports bra for 12.99!! I wish they would’ve had more than just one color so I could’ve bought a bunch.

Marshalls was next and I found a really cute purse for $10!



Had myself a beef burrito with rice and beans for lunch.

Then I had to babysit so I had a hot pocket and an ice cream cone at Alex’s and he dropped me off at the house I was babysitting. The girls were adorable and I definitely would babysit for them again!

Woke up and went to Queeny Park with Alex to run.

My new nike sports bra!! Isn’t it cool?




We went back to my house afterward and had lunch.

hot dog dinner

I had a hot dog, cole slaw, macaroni salad and some fries. Alex had a hotdog and a cheeseburger lol.

italian meatloaf

Italian meatloaf and potato salad for dinner!


Alex and I played Mario Kart and Crazy Golf with my parents, it was a good time.

Coming up….A Review of “Rockin’ Refuel” milk by Shamrock Farms.



Running is more fun with friends

Yesterday I ran with my friends Amanda and Jenny. It was really nice to have people to run with and especially nice to go at a more casual running pace.

When I got home I made myself a wonderful Green Monster Smoothie.

First I blended the sunny D, fruit and sherbet. Then I added the spinach to blend it in as well. Then you have the final product:

Dad and I made sandwiches and watched Royal Pains. (Love that show!)


When my mom got home we went shopping to TJ Maxx and Marshalls, but before we ate at McAlister’s Deli.

Then I came home and went to bed at 9pm.

Day in the Life of Sam

Here is how my day went yesterday

Woke up at 7:30am to run.

Running Outfit:

Ran 3.6 miles. It was an awful run that involved lots of stopping because I lacked energy and couldn’t breathe.


Graham and I relaxed together.

dogs and computers

We needed groceries so my dad and I went to Shop N Save.


We bought:

Sunny D
Frozen Fruit
Bagel Thins
Sandwich Rolls
Regular Bread
Mozzarella Cheese Slices
Other Lunch Meat
Cereal – Cocoa Puffs and Trix
Red Baron Pizza
New Pretzel M&M’s to try

I’m not sure if we bought anything else. That was the majority of our purchase.


When we got back I made a wonderful Green Monster smoothie

P6240031 P6240036

2 handfuls spinach smashed into the cup
2 spoonfuls of Raspberry Sherbet
1 cup or so of frozen fruit
1/2-1 cup of Sunny D (I never know how much because I add to get it all to blend well)


Graham soaked up some sun from the air conditioning while I enjoyed my smoothie.

Yes, he really did lay with his leg hanging off like that. He also had his right arm hanging off the other side of the arm rest but he picked it up when I snapped this shot.

At 2:30pm I left to go to the boyfriend’s house.

We took his brother to a friend’s house and then went to Dick’s Sporting Goods because his dad needed some ammo for the farm. Of course we looked at all the nike running stuff.

Then we went to Schnuck’s to get some stuff for dinner.


We bought:

Medium Pasta Shells
Half & Half
Shredded Parmesan Cheese
Tomato Sauce
Cheesy Garlic Bread

Then we returned back to his house.


We then made dinner!

pasta con broccoli

Pasta Con Broccoli! One of my favorite homemade meals. Alex and I cooked from scratch together.

Pasta Con Broccoli

His dad was fixing my car because they own an tire and auto repair company so while he was doing that we did some recycling.

In their town they have a huge recycling plant that you take your recycling too. No one comes and collects it like they do in my town. So his dad’s huge van was filled with stuff to be recycled from the shop.

We played Guess Who? and watched some of Tommy Boy before we went to bed at 9:30pm.

So there you have it! That was my day!

What’d you do yesterday?

Let’s catch you up on yesterday.

running copy

Went running in the morning with my friend Amanda. Ran in her town and I basically died. Let’s just say it went like this:

lots of hills + 90 degree temperatures + side cramps = feels out of shape sam.


After the run we talked for a bit and then I headed home.


Couldn’t really find anything to eat for lunch so this is what the result was:

tortilla chips with cheese

Tortilla chips with melted cheese.

Then dinner was chinese.

It wasn’t very good.


During the day I watched An Education


It was an okay movie but not the best. I wouldn’t watch it again honestly.

Most of my day was spent

-catching up on blogs
-playing silly facebook games
– playing with my dog


I live an exciting life, what can I say?

Next post:

A day in the Life of Sam Post #1 ( I know at least one person looking forward to this one.)


Yesterday’s recap





Mac N Cheese in my sweet soccer ball bowl 🙂

Not sure why the 2nd split is there.

Note: This is all yesterday’s info. Today’s will be posted after dinner 🙂

I promise to have more exciting blog posts. Do you have any suggestions?


How’s your day?

Yesterday’s Running

3 Miles. No idea on the time because someone forgot to charge Lola (garmin)


More Changes

I added two new pages onto my blog:
Completed Races
Training in Action



Changes in the blog

Have you noticed the new blog layout? (if you are reading via google reader or some other sort of reading device, you should come check out the blog)

I like it and it looks good in my browser but if it looks big in yours since everyone has different screen sizes and stuff then just zoom out.

Question: Are there ads on my blog?

Because there shouldn’t be and I don’t even know how there are since my blog is not .org, is that how it works? If there are ads, rest assured I’m not getting paid for them. Unfortunately, haha.

Question: Have you made money off your blog, or do you plan on it?

Honestly being a college student and all it’d be nice to make some extra cash, especially off of something I love such as my blog. However I honestly don’t know how I would go about doing it. I am opening an OpenSky shop in August so stay tuned for that! But that is the only thing that I know how to do. So if you have had experience or have heard of ways, let me know so I can look into it.

Comments: I’m going to start commenting people back on their blog as well as on mine. So I am going to stop doing the email responses.


1. Some people don’t check their email.
2. If I comment on your blog then other readers know my blog exists as well.
3. If you are a new reader then I’ll actually get to read your blog since I’ll have to go to it to respond. (major plus because I want to be just as involved in my reader’s blogs as you guys are in mine!)
4. Everyone loves comments on their blog!

Other Changes

Later when I come back from running I plan on updating my “About me” and the “future goals” section as well as maybe adding some more pages, possibly about my running.

Question: Do you have any ideas on the pages you’d like to see on my blog?

Maybe you are wanting to see my daily mileage for the week/month/year whatever or want to know all the races I’ve done and what times I ran. Or maybe you want a page dedicated to my dog hahaha. Throw your ideas out to me and I will see what I can do!!!
