I ate my lunch at NuVal this afternoon. I threw together a random bunch of leftovers from the fridge: roasted Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, chicken, and crumbled feta. It was surprisingly tasty all mixed together.

While working away at NuVal, I sipped on some hot coffee with cream and sugar.

At home a few hours later, I whipped up a green smoothie. In the mix:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup chopped frozen kale
  • 2 tbsp sunflower butter
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.75 cups almond milk

It was quite the delicious smoothie. It sort of tasted like banana bread with sunflower butter spread on top. Delish! It was also insanely filling. I hope I’m hungry for dinner in a few hours!



  1. I just recently came across your blog about a month ago. It inspired me through the last three weeks of half marathon training which ended with my race TODAY. It was my first running race of any kind… period. Though I was very pleased with my time, I decided on the spot that I need some sort of gps watch. Went out way too fast, thinking I was slow and felt horrible at the end. I felt utter despair the last three miles, thinking I was probably running something like 12 minute miles (may or may not have even walked a little… not going to say either way!)… Then came to the end to find that it was 25 minutes EARLIER than i thought it was. Needless to say…. I need major pacing help and some sort of gps watch has got to be in my future 😉
    Thanks for keeping me motivated!

  2. I just signed up for the San Francisco marathon on July 29th and would love to have this to help with training!

  3. I would absolutely love to win this watch!! My usual running route sometimes has to be cut short depending on whether or not the crazy chihuahuas down the street are not being kept in their gate! Its horrible! So this watch would help me find new routes and keep track of how long they are.

  4. i’m training for my first half marathon (the pittsburgh half on 5.6.12) and i will be traveling for work soon so i won’t be able to run on my usual trails that have mile markers… so this watch would keep me on track!

  5. Even though I already have a running watch I would love to win this one for my sister. She is a mama of 3 and getting back into running and just completed her first half marathon!!! I would love to give her a watch to help with her runs 🙂

  6. I attend the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD and am on the Crossfit Team and Women’s Club Soccer Team. I have been looking to purchase a watch like this one for a long time, but since I earn $200 a month here, it has never been in my budget. I am registered for some half marathons and other races in the upcoming months and this watch would really help me train for them and also help me in all other training evolutions I do here at the Academy.

  7. I’ve finally started to run outside again after recovering from an injury – this watch would be great to help me keep track of my workouts!

  8. I am really trying to make a concerted effort to lose weight and get (back) in shape and I think that this would be the perfect motivational assist in pushing me to reach my goals.

    I really hope I win!

  9. I’d like to win this watch because it looks a bit smaller than my garmin. I love the garmin, but it’s bulk is annoying.

  10. I would love to win this awesome gadget! It would make tracking my runs so much better than using google maps (haha it’s like i’m in the stone age)


    PS Just made the peanut soba noodles…and I am obsessed!

  11. I have races pretty much every weekend until June this spring and after my last half marathon and downloading my splits (stone age using mapmyrun) I realize that I am quite a bit faster than I give myself credit for so would love to have a watch that helps me stay on pace better and really push myself in each race!

  12. I would love to win this watch because I am newly addicted to running and it would be a great tool when I start working on speed work.

  13. I would love to win this because I am training for a 10K (my first race ever!!) and it would be amazing to have a gadget that tracks my mileage/pace/calories!!!

  14. I’d love to win this as I’ve never had a watch that tracks everything! I’m working toward getting a 5k PR this summer and doing my first triathlon in July 😀

  15. My Garmin died about five months ago when I got injured. Stress fractures in both shins and compartment syndrome in my calves. Many people told me I should quit running, but I rested. Now, I’m training for the Vermont City Marathon in two months. I did my first twenty miler today, but am missing having a GPS watch terribly! This would help out.

  16. I would love the New Balance GPS Runner Sports Watch because it would be so handy! I just spend a good 8 or so minutes on mapmyrun trying to calculate how far I ran today. It was tedious, and trying to remember the ~1.5 miles I ran when lost was not especially fun. But this watch would make running much more enjoyable and stressful – especially when training for a race!

  17. I am about a year into running and have my first half marathon in about 5 weeks (Wallis Sands in NH) and I am part of a Reach the Beach NH team. Finding the $$ to fund all of the gadgets and gear that make running more enjoyable and more injury-free has been my biggest challange and I don’t see being able to purchase a real running watch anywhere in my future. Plus Map My Run keeps giving me false date which drives me bonkers!!

  18. I’d love to train with a GPS watch! Haven’t used one yet, but they sound awesome. Thanks for offering the watch.

  19. When I was in middle school I couldn’t run more than .1 of a mile without having to walk. I was a figure skater, not someone with a great amount of endurance, but still I wanted to run so bad because it was so relaxing. My best friend, who is a competitive runner, inspires me to try to reach my goal of eventually running a marathon even when I think that’s crazy and it would be fabulous if I could check my progress so evenually I can run a race and keep up with her! I am getting there, I can run 4 miles! 🙂

  20. I would love to win this watch! I have always wanted gps to track my running. I think it would take my training to a whole new level!

  21. I would love this watch! Despite wanting to, I’ve never used any fun gadgets to track my training, so this would be a great help to start!

  22. I would LOVE to win this watch!! My goal this year is to run a half marathon, looks like this would be a helpful tool:))

  23. I have had a running watch on my Christmas List for a year now. Couldn’t swing it last year, so I would love to win this watch. I’m excited to use the watch while I’m training for upcoming races.

  24. I would love to win this as I have heard a lot of great things about these types of devices and I’m just starting to get back into my running routine! I think it would be a great motivational tool.

  25. Hi,

    This giveaway is like winning the Mega Million lottery… I would really enjoy having this gadget because I’m starting to incorporate running into my daily walk and would really like to know what I’m doing and how and where to improve.

    Thank you,

  26. I just started running in races and getting into distance – I’ve had asthma my entire life and was never able to do more than a couple of minutes. Through medication and a long road of training I’ve actually done a 10K and a 15K – and it’s crazy to see how far I’ve come! I’d love this watch so I could actually track

  27. I love to run. I am running the BAA 5k in a couple of weeks. I used to use runkeeper app to train when I had my iPhone. Now I don’t have it anymore and this watch is on my wish list. I will be thankful for it.

  28. I’ve had asthma my entire life and never been able to run. Through a combination of medicine and long, slow training I’ve been able to do a 10K and 15K race. It’s crazy to see how far I’ve come! I could desperately use it for my half marathon training!! Targeting September 🙂

  29. Would love to win the GPS watch. I am having foot surgery this Thursday, and need an extra incentive to take it easy and heal! I will need the watch to help me keep track of speed and distance once I am finally able to run again!

  30. I am training for my first half-marathon and need all the help I can get. This watch would be nice to use a motivation to see how far I really am running outdoors.

  31. I would love to win this! I’m training for my very first half marathon and havent been able to track how fast I’m going each mile and it’s hard to keep pace. It would be put to good use!!

  32. This would be super useful! I’m in the middle of half marathon training, and I would love to be able to use one of these!
