Murphy, seriously?!?


My dog has a serious peanut butter problem. He looks ridiculous in this photo!

After I made my breakfast this morning (which included peanut butter), I wiped my hands on the towel by our kitchen sink. They must have had a little bit of peanut butter on them because, not a minute later, Murphy started licking the towel for remnants of peanut butter. What a freak. He has serious PB issues.

Snack + Workout

Marie and I woke up bright and early and took Body Pump with “Vicky” this morning. I love that Vicky whizzes through class! Our workout is over and done with before we know it! Today, however, she didn’t give us enough time to switch our weights between triceps and biceps, so I ended up doing 23 pounds on biceps! Let me tell you, my muscles were screaming! 😯 I stopped a few times to rest, but I’m glad that I challenged myself.

Before I headed to the gym, I snacked on a homemade granola bar.



After my workout, I threw together a quickie breakfast: a Joseph’s pita with peanut butter and sliced banana inside.


I loaded up on both PB + banana! 😉


I also had a chocolate whey + iced coffee + vanilla soy milk beverage with breakfast.


Calling All Boston Marathon Runners

In the coming weeks, I’d like to write a blog post about those of you who are running the Boston Marathon. If you’d like to participate, please send me a little profile about yourself (age, location, # of marathons, blog link, fundraising info, etc.) and a photo, and I’ll create a blog post devoted to all of the Boston Marathon runners.

If you didn’t know already, Marathon Monday is my absolute favorite day of the year– even more so than Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years, and my birthday. I’m pretty much obsessed with the day, which I explain here and here. Obviously, running the Boston Marathon is my ultimate dream, but I have walked the course 3 times now with the Jimmy Fund. With my stupid hip, who knows if a marathon is in my future. But, even still, I love everything about Marathon Monday!
