What I Ate Wednesday: Ludington Girls Trip Edition

Although we planned our trip to Ludington around running a race, no girls' trip would be complete without enjoying some delicious food at local eateries! Going to unique to the area restaurants is one of my favorite things about going out of town. I love experiencing what locations have to offer through their food. And… Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday: Ludington Girls Trip Edition

Tried It Tuesday: Overnight Oatmeal

I will be honest. The first time that I tried overnight oats, I was not impressed. I really wanted to like them because I knew that I could make a batch and have breakfast for a few days, which is huge for someone who likes to sleep in like I do! I don't remember what… Continue reading Tried It Tuesday: Overnight Oatmeal

What I Ate Wednesday # 8

Wednesdays for some reason always seem to be my hectic days. With my new job I work 10 hour days, and on Wednesdays I usually work a late day - so I work from 9:30am-8pm. Long days, and slightly awkward as far as eating throughout the day. Also, with my new job, I have started… Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday # 8

I almost forgot about this today!  I was trying to think of a creative photo for my Project 365 picture of the day, then remembered I needed to do this.  So I captured pictures of what I ate today, plus a bonus! This morning I could have slept in, but I woke up at 6am.  I didn't… Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday #7

Keeping It Real: Why My Body Is Awesome!

I like many people out there, I'm sure, am completely guilty of bashing my body.  There are days when I say critical things about myself and I get down on myself for not eating right or exercising enough.  And as a dietitian I should be a better role model to the world... but lately life… Continue reading Keeping It Real: Why My Body Is Awesome!

Recipes, Weekly Wrap Up

Weekly Wrap Up #1

One thing I love about the MyFitnessPal app on my phone is that I can look at my overall progress a week at a time.  The thing about good nutrition and healthy living is that it is all about averages.  Every day isn't going to be perfect, and it doesn't have to be in order… Continue reading Weekly Wrap Up #1


Breakfast Fun!

One thing that I love about weekends is the ability to whip up a more complex breakfast than I do during the weekdays.  Let's be honest - I like to sleep in.  I am not an early riser.  I don't leave myself a lot of time in the mornings before work to make a great… Continue reading Breakfast Fun!

Well, this is embarrassing. I had Wednesday off this week.  I spent the entire day doing chores around the house - I cleaned my kitchen, dining area, and bathroom.  I made a delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner, and planned to blog about it on Wednesday.  But... by the end of my busy, productive day off, not… Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday #5

This delicious meal was breakfast on 1/15/12 - told you it had been a long time since I updated!  I love my weekends - I always try to make… Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday #3
