I Run For Mother Nature…

Yet, she seems to think that it’s like, oh, winter still.


That’s in C* in case you were wondering…

Anyhow, quick post before I try and finish up work fast and pack up for my San Diego Marathon Weekend!! AHHH!!!!

It may have been cold this morning, but I wanted a smoothie anyhow. Honey did too…look at that malicious face staring down Thursday’s breakfast.  Yep.

And I hit a breaking point with the wind and cold.  Winter running headband as a face mask.  Oh yes I did!

Lunch at home: nectarine, donut peach, blackberries.  Veggie hummus sandwich.  With a side of cat…as company.

Snacks in afternoon: I took some trail mix I made (pistachios, peanuts, cashews, raisins, cranberries and chocolate chips) and mixed it with some Granola of Kauai and Chocolate Munch by Attune.

Seriously, adding granola to my trail mix was the best idea ever.  Adds so much more to the mix!

I had a much needed appointment with my counselor in the evening then ran my last run before the marathon (3 miles in 30 minutes) and did some abs.

I’m trying to use up all my produce from my produce box so I sautéed leeks, swiss chard, baby carrots and bell pepper, then topped it on a salad with tomatoes, cucumbers and red leaf lettuce.  Hummus to finish it off.

I had another piece of banana bread before bed!

Quick bowl of kashi cereal with berries and almond milk this mroning and now I’m off to finish work!!!

Yay for Friday and the weekend!!! WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS!!!!????

    Hi there! I've been reading your blog for a few months now and have never left a comment but I wanted to say how much I love it and am rooting for you in all aspects of your life. I am recovering from an eating disorder myself (hospitalized twice, in patient twice, outpatient a million times). I am working so hard to get better now because I am graduating high school in about 2 weeks and then heading to UCLA for school next year. I live i San Diego and volunteer all the time so I may be cheering you on in person at the marathon! I know you will do great, you've obviously have worked hard and all thats left is to rest up and then run! Good luck!
