Greetings from high in the sky somewhere over Nebraska! I’m on my way to Los Angeles right now, and I’m using the very expensive in-flight internet to blog. (Frickin’ $17.95 for internet? Jeez, Louise. I almost didn’t buy it, but, hey, it’s for my job, right? Plus, I like blogging and it keeps me entertained.) Breakfast Once again, we had a nearly-empty jar of nut butter in the house, so I made Overnight Oats in…

Check it out: my last pill for my UC!! I took that baby this morning, which means I’m off ALL drugs now. No steroids. No nothing. Booyah. Let’s hope I can stay healthy now! FYI: I’m taking probiotics (my doctor recommended VSL3) as well as a multivitamin and fish oil daily. Breakfast As soon as I woke up this morning, the thought of almond butter popped into my head, so I made My Favorite Breakfast…

Last night, I stumbled upon a piece on Shape.com called 10 Seriously Fit Chicks of CrossFit, which highlighted strong and inspiring women to watch at the 2012 CrossFit Games. It was right up my alley! I loved reading about these ladies, and I am especially excited to see them compete at the Games in a few weeks. I know we all have fit chicks that motivate us, so here are three that really inspire me: Annie…

“Eva” totally kicked my butt last night. I’m definitely taking a rest day today. Those “New Girls” are no joke! Many have asked, “Why are the workouts named after Girls?” Coach Glassman, the founder and President of CrossFit explained it best. “I want to explain the workout once and then give it a name. I thought that anything that left you flat on your back, looking up at the sky asking ”˜what just happened to…

I pretty much ate and drank my face off this weekend at BlogHer Food. I literally ate all day long for four straight days. Of course, I don’t regret a single bite (it’s all part of the experience), but, even still, I’m ready to get back on track with my healthy eating habits. Here’s how I get back on track: Don’t dwell on the past Instead of worry about and dwelling on the eating “mistakes”…

Hello, friends! I just got home from a nice, little afternoon, complete with a mani-pedi, some shopping, and a trip to Starbucks. (There was also a bunch of boring stuff mixed in there, but those things don’t make for a very exciting blog post.) I’m off to Seattle tomorrow for BlogHer Food, so I needed to run some errands before heading out to the West coast. Lunch #1 I scheduled a manicure and pedicure at…

Have you tried Larabar’s new Ãœber bar? Holy goodness it’s delicious! A few weeks ago, Larabar sent me their four Ãœber flavors to try, but Mal ate three of the four before I had a chance to try them. The Cherry Cobbler was fair game, so I tried it last night, and it’s seriously the best bar I’ve ever eaten. It was sweet and salty, dessert-like, and really tasted like cherry cobbler. It was basically…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MAL!!! [Image by my very talented friend Jon, who meets celebrities like Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. He actually hung out with them over the weekend. No big deal.] I’m not sure who’s more excited about Mal’s 30th birthday today””him or me! Breakfast This morning, I woke up before Mal’s alarm went off, so I could make him a big ol’ birthday breakfast before he headed to work. His breakfast: 2 eggs,…

Good morning! Monica and Theodora both arrived safe and sound here in Boston. I picked up Theodora from South Station last night and Monica from the airport this morning. Once we were all together at my house, we spent the morning catching up and going over some last-minute preparation for Reach the Beach. Last-minute preparations: Buy snacks from Trader Joe’s Buy bug spray Wash & dry pug fur-covered blankets Pack hand sanitizer Pack extra TP…

It’s so nice to be home. I missed my boys. And my bed. And my food. It’s funny how you enjoy those things so much more when you’ve been away from them for a little while. Because I was traveling and away from my computer for most of last week, I had a lot of catching up to do. So, this morning, I set my alarm for 5:01 AM, rolled out of bed, and got…

Good morning! Happy Monday! What’s on your agenda for today? Here’s what’s on mine: Packing for New York City. I actually wrote “packing” twice on my To Do list, so I guess I really want to make sure it gets done to today. Although, it’s not like I’d actually forget to pack for my trip. Ok, I just like crossing things off my To Do list. It makes me feel more productive, so now I…

Nine miles were on my half marathon training schedule for today. I have to admit, I was kind of dreading it, so I dillydallied online””read blogs, Tweeted, played on Pinterest””before getting my act together to finally get out there and run. Before heading out, I went on MapMyRun and found a 3.33-mile loop that started and ended at my house. I planned to run it three times, which turned my 9 miles into 10 miles,…

Hello! Is today flying by for anyone else? I figured my first work day back from vacation would drag on and on, but it’s really whizzing by. Holy moly, where does the time go? Hey, I’m not complaining! Lunch I went grocery shopping this morning, so my kitchen was full of lots of healthy options for lunch today. I had raw green bell pepper, carrots, and celery with hummus. Love this flavor! I also had…

Woah. Is this morning flying by for anyone else or is it just me? Hey, I’m not complaining””I mean, the quicker the day goes by, the closer I am to vacation! Vacation countdown: 3 days. Can you tell I’m just a tad excited? Breakfast Remember my failed protein pancake from yesterday? Well, I perfected it this morning! Introducing: Tropical Protein Pancakes! I love anything with coconut in it, so these pancakes definitely hit the spot…

It was an early morning in the Haupert household today. Usually, Mal and I (and Murphy) wake up at 5:45 to start our day, but Mal needed to be in Boston bright and early this morning, so we were up and at ”˜em much earlier than usual. Since I knew it’d be an early start for us, I prepared everything for breakfast last night, so all I had to do was cook it in the morning. I…
