Woah. Did March totally fly by for anyone else? I can’t believe the month is just about over! With that said, here’s my Top 12 in 2012 for March!
I had a little pity party for myself this morning. I got pissed. I cried. And then I got over it. Life’s not fair. Accept and adjust. My goal was to return to CrossFit today to do WOD 12.2, but, sadly, I’m still in no condition to do any sort of strenuous exercise.
Good morning! Happy Friday! I’m at the doctor’s office right now for some tests, including a rather uncomfortable flexible sigmoidoscopy, so, needless to say, my morning isn’t off to the best start. I promised myself I wouldn’t let colitis get me down, so I’m taking a page from Ali’s super positive book and blogging about what I am thankful for today.
Oh, boy, do I have a delicious pancake recipe for you guys! Ingredients: 3 bananas 3 eggs 1/4 cup almond butter 1/4 cup almond meal/flour 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp vanilla extract Directions: Mash bananas. (I like the mash-in-peel method the best. It works great with unripe bananas.)
Welcome to my new and improved home office! My not-so-relaxing work space has finally been transformed. It’s been a long-time coming, but it was worth every once of time, money, and effort.
Remember when I had lunch with Ellie Krieger in New York City back in January? Our lunch was pretty informal, so it wasn’t really an opportunity for an interview, but Ellie’s publicist got in touch with me to coordinate a Q & A with her.
A bunch of you guys have asked if I’ve seen changes in my body and physical abilities since starting CrossFit about three months ago. I apologize for not responding with much information, but it’s only because I didn’t have any concrete answers since it was too soon to see significant changes.
I started Carrots ‘N’ Cake to keep me on track with eating well and exercising in preparation for my upcoming wedding. It was a personal food and fitness journal, and I really had no intention of anyone ever reading it. I definitely didn’t think that it would become such a huge part of my life—let alone my job.
Hooray! I survived the Rock ‘N’ Roll USA Half Marathon! After a colitis flare and running just 15 miles in the past month, I am absolutely thrilled to have crossed the finish line– with a smile on my face, no less!
When I was sick with a colitis flare a few weeks ago, an unexpected package arrived in the mail for me: a box of goodies from Sephora. I love Sephora, but I didn’t remember ordering anything recently, so who the heck sent it to me? It turns out that three of my favorite blog buddies sent me a care package.
A few times a week, once I finished eating dinner, I’d find myself heading to the kitchen for a late night snack, especially if I was just lounging around the house watching TV. I’d end up eating mindlessly and consume hundreds of extra calories even though I wasn’t really hungry. I knew I needed to get control of my nighttime snacking if I wanted to lose weight, so I started to implement some new eating habits—throughout the day—to help me rein in my snacking.
Success! I dominated my tempo run this morning! Are you wondering what a tempo run is all about? I received a bunch of questions when I posted my half marathon training plan for the Run to Remember the other day, so here’s a quick explanation.
Sweet Potato Wedges have pretty much become a staple in my diet in recent months. They’re delicious, nutritious, satisfying, and I just can’t get enough of them. I’ve recently received a number of questions about how I make my Sweet Potato Wedges, so here’s a tutorial that shares all of my little secrets!
