WIAW

Wednesday already!? I feel like I just did I WIAW post! I’m linking up with Jenn to show you what I ate…all day Tuesday.

First let’s start with the workout because that came before any food – I headed out for day 2 of my 1/2 marathon training plan and tackled 3 miles. Recently every single time I’ve run I get a horrible pain in my hip flexor. For the rest of the day it throbs and I have to semi-limp (I’m also a tad bit dramatic) and it is extremely uncomfortable. Any ideas from you runners??

Breakfast: Protein Shake from the gym – Banana Protein, Crunchy Peanut Butter, Soy Milk, Ice & Fat-burner supplement

Speaking of peanut butter – I posted some useful information on my FB yesterday – Time to stock up PB lovers!

Lunch: Whole Wheat Tortilla w/  bbq sauce, caramelized onions, leftover chicken & mozzarella cheese

Snack: Popcorn

Dinner: Zucchini noodles w/ meatless meatballs, marinara and nutritional  yeast. I also baked zucchini sticks with marinara (egg whites & whole wheat panko)

Dessert: S’mores bowl – graham cracker sheet, marshmallows, dark chocolate chips – Microwave for 20 seconds

If you can’t have the real thing, this will satisfy your craving!

The weather is starting to cool down so I wore this

Long sleeve shirt with lace back: Forever 21

Ripped Jeans: Citizens of Humanity

Tan Boots: Nordstrom

Necklace: So old I can’t remember but probably Forever 21

Short hair: Unfortunately, me.

Adam kept telling me my hair was getting too long (pretty sure he was annoyed it was everywhere in the house) so I decided to cut my hair.. Well i made a quick decision and just said cut 5 1/2 inches off. WHY? I always do this and get mad at myself.. I like long hair because my hair is thick and looks like a poof when its short…so long story short I will be growing it out, again.

QUESTIONS: Have you ever regretted a haircut?

Fall Tricks, Treats & News

It’s Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiday!! Put a smile on your face 🙂 I have two visitors coming up this weekend from Maryland and am VERY excited!

Yesterday marked the first official day of fall so I decided to make myself a treat! Always an excuse to celebrate 😉

Pumpkin French Toast!

So simple and filling – A great way to kick off fall! All you need:

Pumpkin French Toast (dairy-free)

Ingredients

  • 3 slices of Whole Wheat Light Style Bread (45 calories each = 135)
  • 1 tbsp ground flax (30 calories)
  • 2 tbsp water ( 0 calories)
  • 2 tbsp pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix) (10 calories)
  • 1 tbsp almond milk (2 calories)
  • 1 tbsp Pumpkin Pie spice
Directions
  • Mix everything (except bread) into a bowl

  • Dip each side of bread into bowl and place in pre-heated skillet

  • Flip when brown and repeat
  • Drizzle syrup on top of french toast

AMAZING and under 200 calories!

Now that I’ve shown you my treat I’d like to share this video of trick’s I saw. 25 ways to wear a scarf! I am queen of scarves ( I own about 40, no lie) and I’m always looking for new ways to wear them. This girl will show you how to do it!

Pretty sweet, eh?

For the last tidbit of information on this Friday I’d like to tell you some big (to me) news.

I’ve signed up to do my FIRST half marathon!!!!!!! Of course I wouldn’t have it any other way than me running 13.1 miles in a tutu and a tiara 🙂

This girl has never ran longer than 5 miles but I have time to train so I’m VERY excited!! If anyone has any tips or a really great training plan please let me know!

Have a good weekend

Just preparing....
