    Good morning! Happy Thursday!

    I need to speed through this post because I have a photographer coming to my house for a 3-hour photo shoot for Where Woman Cook. I haven’t showered, taken Murphy out, or cleaned my house yet, so I have lots to do this morning!


    For breakfast, I ate two TF’s waffles with almond butter spread on top and an nectarine on the side. I also drank an iced coffee with soy milk. I definitely need the caffeine this morning! Go-go-go!

    Three Questions Thursday

    Here’s the next installment of Three Questions Thursday! Thanks for all of your great questions!

    I was wondering if you could address the issue of eating healthy when eating out. I, as I’m sure many people do, have a lot of trouble balancing my healthy eating habits with my social life. I really don’t want to eat food that’s not good for my body but I also really don’t want to miss out on hanging out with people. Do you have any suggestions for this?

    Here are a few helpful posts:

    Have you recently lost a lot of weight Tina? Is this due to running so much?

    Yes and no. Since January when I ran the marathon, I’ve lost 8 or 9 pounds (I gained close to 10 during training), so I’m pretty much back to my Feel Great Weight. (I’m not trying to lose anymore.) Recently, however, I haven’t lost any weight, and I’ve actually been running less in the last few months. Check out my fun DailyMile chart below!


    How do you run with a camera?

    I don’t run with a camera. I run with my iPhone to listen to music, so I also use the camera app to snap photos.

    My favorite moment of the day is when my husband comes to the room at 7:45 am and wakes me up with a hug and kiss on the cheek. I need a little TLC before getting myself to the bathroom.

    I can’t wait to see the photo shoot, so exciting!


    The Teenage Taste June 16, 2011 at 10:50 am

    Sandi June 16, 2011 at 11:22 am

    My favorite moment is when my little pug Lucy wakes up and her tail is wagging like crazy! It’s like she is saying I missed you while I was sleeping! Such love!


    Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife June 16, 2011 at 11:31 am

    My favorite moment of the day is…..when I climb into bed with my husband! Also equal to finishing a good workout :)

    Have fun with the photo shoot!


    Joanna B June 16, 2011 at 11:44 am

    Favorite moment of the day is taking my first sip of a freshly brewed pot of Trader Joe’s coffee. Also, all meal times are favorite times of the day.


    Alyssa June 16, 2011 at 11:46 am

    A photoshoot?? That sounds like so much fun!

    My favorite moment of the day is taking a shower & eating a meal after a good workout. There’s nothing like a feeling of accomplishment. :)


    Coco June 16, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    My favorite moment of the day is when my boyfriend snuggles close, gives me a kiss, and says “Good morning, beautiful”. What better start to the day could I ask for?!


    Rachel June 16, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    Tina, totally unrelated to this post, but have you seen this website?! http://mugsofpugs.tumblr.com/


    Tina June 16, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    @Rachel: Love it!!! I just submitted a photo of Murphy! :)


    Kate June 16, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    My moment of of the day is when I’m able to wake up and head out for a nice run. I really enjoy the alone time with my thoughts.

    My favorite part of the day is after I finish my morning workout, knowing iced coffee and breakfast is next!


    Sarah June 16, 2011 at 12:27 pm

    breakfast ! I love being up before the world starts and enjoying a calm morning. It’s my “me” time.


    Sonia (the Mexigarian) June 16, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    My favorite part of the day is the morning. I wake up to a snoring husband, an energetic puppy and two cats begging for food. It’s work to take care of them, but I love it. :)


    Abby June 16, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    My favorite part of the day is waking up to ideal running conditions, getting out there, and returning for a great breakfast and iced coffee!


    lynn @ the actor's diet June 16, 2011 at 12:59 pm

    my fave moment is climbing into bed with my husband and dog. they are so freaking cute.


    Meghan @ StruggleMuffins June 16, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    Good question – my fave time of the day is usually when I’m finishing a workout, run or yoga class – nothing beats that sense of accomplishment, and the endorphin high that comes from the physical exertion :)


    becca (bellebottoms) June 16, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    My favorite moment of the day is right after a workout after work when I’m cooling down and getting ready to prep dinner! :)


    Michelle @ Crazy*Running*Legs June 16, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    A favorite moment of the day is right before my kids go to bed. We snuggle, sometimes read, sometimes rock — and I get lots of hugs and kisses. It makes the crazy moments of the day worth it every time!


    Christine (The Raw Project) June 16, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    My favorite part of the day is finishing my evening workout and relaxing with hubby.


    Katie June 16, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    That first sip of coffee. Yum!


    Alaina June 16, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    I love early morning’s around my apartment. As much as I don’t like getting up early, the silence and calm throughout Harvard Square is so enjoyable. Especially in the fall.


    Madelaine June 16, 2011 at 4:56 pm

    My favorite moment of the day is breakfast=)
    Glad your interview went ok!


    Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin June 16, 2011 at 5:41 pm

    That’s so exciting about the photoshoot. I hope it went well! :)

    My favourite moment of the day is early in the morning, when everything is quiet and still and it’s just me + my coffee.


    Joelle (On A Pink Typewriter) June 16, 2011 at 5:50 pm

    My favorite moment of the day is in the morning, when I’m at the gym or running – I cannot face my office without having that quiet time to wake up! Or breakfast time if it’s the weekend and I have time to eat a slow, luxurious-feeling meal.


    Shana June 16, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    When I curl up before bed with a good book and bowl of dry cereal to munch on!


    Doc (The Healthy PhD) June 16, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    You do look extra skinny lately! Maybe it’s all the muscle you put on when you were training, and now that the extra lbs are gone you look super cut!

    Favorite moment of ANY day is when a student of mine ‘gets’ something on their own and tells me about their miraculous ‘ah-ha!’ moment. I live for that!


    Katie G June 20, 2011 at 11:48 am

    It’s a tie….during my morning workout….or laying in bed together with my bf before dozing off for the evening. :)
