Hi everyone! Sorry I have been MIA – We got back from vacation Monday night and yesterday we had to go grocery shopping because we had absolutely no food in the house…so unlike me! For todays WIAW I am going to show you everything I ate on vacation.

Day 1: Lunch at Saloon on the way there – Pulled Pork with sweet potato waffle fries – ate all of the fries in place of the bun ūüėČ

Day 1: Dinner at Bocca – AMAZING. Greeted with warm pita bread and dipping oils

The best salad I ever had РTrying to recreate the dressing which was a lime vinaigrette

Half of a¬†phenomenal¬† capri panini – so mad i forgot the other half there ūüė¶

Split Dessert: Fried puff pastry filled with blueberries and served with a scoop of gelato

Day 2: The best tasting beer I’ve ever had…and I’m not a beer drinker

Dinner: Ordered a Salad – They brought out lettuce only. Hate when places do that!

Ordered the Mac and Cheese as my meal

You can bet I ate every last bite!

Split Dessert: Waffle with gelato, hot fudge and whipped cream – Amazing…

Day 3: Salad with tons of veggies – yum

Lunch: Cup of chili – I ate around the meat.

Dessert at lunch time? Sure, why not – We were heading out so it would be our last one! Reese’s Ice Cream Pie. Um, yes…no words.

With travel time totaling up to over 10 hours in the 3 days and the food we ate I could not wait to get to running yesterday. On my plan was a 3 mile run but I ran a little more than 3.5 because I NEEDED the movement.

Oh by the way – We did more than eat in Cooperstown. I promise…

We went a cider mill

Went to a beer tasting (most amazing beer)

Went to the hall of fame

Where I clearly had fun..

I stuck it out for 3 hours – By then my attention span had shrunk to the size of a peanut.

We also saw some AMAZING views. I couldn’t get over how pretty everything was! I feel as though I never captured the true beauty of the mountains.

Now I’m back home to city life – where people honk outside of our apartment every 12 seconds.

QUESTIONS: What is the best meal you’ve ever had on Vacation? On this particular one I would say the salad from the first restaurant… Yes, it beat out desserts. Who am I?

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 РBanana 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?
