Today’s workout was another run. Before the sun came up, the hubs and I conquered 4 hilly miles. We must’ve run past a bakery along the way because we caught a whiff of delicious cookies. The run left my stomach feeling off so I just had a glass of veggie/fruit juice for breakfast and made sure to pack some filling snacks for the late morning, when I knew my hunger would strike. I’m always looking for new snack ideas so if you do too, here are my favs as of lately:

*Small handful of nut mix (mine has peanuts, cashews, pistachios and almonds) + a pinch of plain M&Ms. Sure does help me fight any big sweet tooth cravings.
*Raw Broccoli + Olive Hummus. The amount of garlic or olive hummus that I’d like to eat is ridiculous, I had to stop buying the “Family Size” because I was eating more and fast, no cost savings. I love eating garlic parmesan pita chips with the garlic hummus – so much garlic, so few vampires.

*Cuties. Refreshing, sweet and so tiny.

* TJ Rice Cracker Mix. Love that seaweed flavor.

* Edamame with a dash of salt and lots of pepper or garlic powder.
Does anybody have some good dairy and oat free breakfast ideas? I can’t eat either and hard boiled eggs are starting to get old.

And We're Back!

To summarize the last four months of my life – I’ve knocked off 1 item from the “3 Goals Before 30” list by completing my first half-century bike ride. It was a tough one but the TORGV (Tour of the Rio Grande Valley) was so much fun! The hubs and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary (one of these days I’ll post a recap). I quit my job (finally!). And my exercise has fallen to the wayside (boo!).

I am signed up for a super sprint Tri this spring and am looking forward to writing about my experience training for the race here. I'm really glad to be jumping back into this blog, I missed it and could really use the motivation.

Yesterday’s workout was a 45 minute interval session on the dreadmill. Afterward, I was waiting for the hubs to wrap up his workout so I opted for a little circuit training that looked like this:

10 Push Ups
10 Assisted Pull Ups
10 Squats
10 Tricep Push Ups
10 Wide Grip Assisted Pull Ups
10 PliƩ Squats
100 Ab Exercises (Bicycles, Planks, etc.)
Rest for 1 Minute

I completed this entire circuit 3 times. My arms are so tired today!

Today’s workout was an hour long spin session.
Happy Hump Day!


Hey everyone! Hope you like our new look. We're done with this hiatus and will be updating soon! Check back :)
