Five More Weeks

Happy Monday Morning!

It was tough waking up at 5:30 am this morning. I have been relaxing, lounging, sleeping in since Friday!

It was definitely a coffee kind of morning


I hit “snooze” a few too many times, and ended up grabbing a CLIF bar on the way out the door. By the way, I love all flavors.


By the time I got back from my first class (my second was cancelled, thank goodness!)… I was starving!

I made a green smoothie to hold me over until lunch.


It was the most basic of green smoothies ever:

  • Ice
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1 TBL flax
  • 3 cups of spinach

With a little honey to sweeten up my Monday!



The next five weeks at a glance…


Even though I am obsessed with my g-calendar (Google Calendar) and have been faithfully relying on it for about three years now, I do LOVE to get things written out on this board:


I like crossing off the days, and having a general overview of when things are happening.

Some exciting things coming up in the next month or so:

  • November 18: I can run again!!
  • Nov 19-23: Going to visit BFF Debbie in New Jersey
  • Thanksgiving with my family in Tampa
  • Possible Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot
  • OUC Half Marathon (my third year running, sad Deb won’t be there, but still)
  • Senior Design project due! (Ummm… need to get started, STAT)


It’s time for me to buckle down and get some things done. I need to figure out a way to stay sane through all of this craziness!


Do you prefer to keep track of your days using an electronic calendar, like G-Calendar, or do you prefer to hand write it?

Anniversary Enchiladas!

Happy two year anniversary to me and Jason! 😀


Two years ago today, Jason and I went on our first date, TGIFridays! LOL. He took me out to dinner before my first 10k to “get some carbs”. Surrrrre. He just wanted to hangout with me. 😉

Jason is my best friend, and I don’t know what I would do without him! He brings out the best in me, and always makes me laugh.

Aaawww.. ok enough sappiness.

The only weeknight that we get to eat dinner together is Wednesday so it works out that our anniversary fell tonight. We made enchiladas together!


We used whole wheat tortillas, oikos (instead of sour cream), salsa, chicken, Mexican cheese, jalepenos, cumin, garlic, and enchilada sauce. It turned out so tasty!


I wanted veggies IN my enchilada, but Jason made them on the side.



Back up to this afternoon… I ran 4.0 miles on the treadmill in 38 minutes. It wasn’t “easy” but wasn’t “hard” either. I only had 15 minutes between the gym and class so I made a green smoothie to cool me down.


Same ingredients as yesterday, but this one all to myself!

  • spinach
  • ice
  • banana
  • 1/2 cup soymilk
  • spoonful peanut butter

I also snacked on a pumpkin pie Kashi bar during class…


Off to spend some time with my man! Have a great night!
