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
It has been a while since I have made a "What I Ate Wednesday" post. Lately I've whined about how my diet isn't helping me and I need to eat better, blah blah blah. So last week I tried really hard to eat food made at home, eat more fruits and vegetables, and drink water… Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday: A Week of Your RD on the Run’s Eats!
If you had asked me 8 years ago when I started running if I would ever run a half marathon, I probably would have laughed in your face. At that time, I could barely run a mile. I wasn't even sure about running the 5k that I had signed up for in the fall. That… Continue reading Transformation Tuesday
For this "What I Ate Wednesday" I thought I would take a little trip down memory lane and reminisce on all of the wonderful food that I had while on my road trip this fall. On Monday night I posted a picture of my friend and I from our trip, saying how I really want… Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday: Road Trip 2015 Edition
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
It has been a while since your "keeping it real" dietitian shared her thoughts with the world. I posted in the beginning of November about how crazy life has been, and it really hasn't stopped. My husband and I have received so many blessings, and at the same time we've been through some really tough… Continue reading Banking the Miles: November & December Update
It is officially September... my favorite month of the year! The end of summer, beginning of fall... new school year for students and teachers, the start of college football (Fire Up Chips!), Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks, leaves start to change, the start of fall weddings (including my own two years ago!), and the temperatures… Continue reading Banking the Miles: August Update
This year so far I have participated in 3 out of 4 of the Michigan Half Marathon Series races - The Chip River Run, The LittleFoot Run, and last night's Panda Bear Night Run. (Click the links to see my other race recaps!) Last night's 5k wasn't my best by any means, but it was… Continue reading Race Recap: The Panda Bear Night Run
Another week has gone by - can you believe it? January is almost half over! While I definitely feel myself "slowing down" a bit, I'm still trying to keep up with my goals for 2014. We are still waiting for the state to show up at work, which kinda throws me off. It has helped… Continue reading Weekly Wrap Up #3
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
Well here we are, almost a full week into the New Year. I have been working hard towards my goals for 2014 and have even added some new ones. This weekend was a productive one for me, even though we have been dumped on with snow since last night. Right now it is looking like… Continue reading Weekly Wrap Up #2
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
Yeah, it's been a while since I made one of these posts! But it just so happened that I made a yummy dinner, thought about blogging, and found my hubby's camera so I could take pictures. Since Ken was working tonight, I wanted something simple. And usually when Ken is working, I try to make… Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday #4
Err... so this is actually "What I've Eaten Lately" because I haven't been very good at updating or taking pictures of the yummy food I eat. 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
