Fit Foodie: Picture Fail!

Picture Fail…you’re probably wondering why I titled this blog that.  It’s not that the pictures taken were bad.  It’s that I forgot to even take pictures after some of the recipes.  The smells were so dang intoxicating that all I thought of was…TIME TO EAT!  Here was the one recipe that I can fully remember […]

180 Miles to Marathon!

Oh my heart just fluttered typing that title.  We have broke the 200 miles barrier.  It’s getting closer. Tomorrow is a 12 mile long run.  It’s a draw down week.  I’m still in shock that the words “it’s only a 12 miler this weekend” came out of my mouth.  That was the peak training mileage […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Why Hello PR!

Not Puerto Rico…I wish!  I hit a huge personal record.  Kinda giving myself an MVP for the year.  Okay yes yes yes…I’m the only one playing but that means I can also give whatever titles I want to myself!  This last weekend was the Marine Corps Half Marathon.  I had missed the chance last year […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: One year since baby

It’s been a year…a whole year already!  I look at my baby girl and I am in total denial.  I look at me in the mirror and I’m in total denial.  THEN I look at a comparison picture and I am in shock.  Yes, I was swollen and 3 days post labor but trust this…that […]

Fit Foodie: I’m in love with food…seriously.

So before you look at this and say what I would say to me…  I swear I didn’t only make sweets!  It was one of those weeks where we literally devoured dinners right out of the pans.  They didn’t even make it to the plates most of the time!

244 Miles to Marathon

I’m scared.  I’m fearful of this long run.  This enters the uncharted territory for my legs, my mentality and my heart.  I constantly hear how this is THE run that is the greatest.  This is the run that provides you with a great runner’s high.  My legs are already achy and fatigued but I know […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: They’re just numbers!!

I’ve learned so much on my journey.  There are a few things that I’d like to point out for people because I find them to be necessary to remember. First, food.  There is good food and there is bad food.  If it’s packaged and has a long shelf life like a lot of the diet food […]

Fit Foodie: Brinner & Visitors!

My cousin came to visit!  My family is always teasing me that I need to live closer with all the food pictures I post.  Well when they come to visit me, I like to try to make it a point to cook for them now.  It’s odd because I’ve always kinda sorta been like this. […]

271 Miles to Marathon

  I figured that maybe this blogging might be the best to do before the weekly long run. Like maybe it will help leave all the anxiety and tension behind… I was shocked this week when I realized we have finally come to the near the half way point of our training. Tomorrow closes week […]
