Hi, friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend. So, my weekend”¦. well, it was not awesome. I’m in the middle of a terrible flare that isn’t responding to drugs, so, needless to say, I’m not a happy camper right now. I talked to my doctor a few times over the weekend, and he’s going to try to get me in earlier this week for my first infusion of Remicade, so, hopefully, things…

Good morning! Thank you for all of your wonderful comments and suggestions on my post yesterday. I spent the majority of last night pouring over them and making adjustments to our baby registry, so now I am feeling really good about things. You guys had so many great recommendations! Thanks, again! I’m lucky to have such awesome readers! So, I had a nice little Tuesday. I cashed in my Valentine’s Day gift certificate from Mal…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! I woke up bright and early yesterday morning to get all of my errands and chores done for the week, so I could spend the rest of the day outside enjoying myself. I am so pumped that the warm weather has finally arrived! One of my errands, of course, included grocery shopping for the upcoming week. Remember how I used to hate grocery shopping? Ok, maybe hate is a strong word,…

Yesterday started bright and early once again with a run in Central Park with Monica. We ran 3 miles together, but then I called it quits. I just didn’t have a ton of energy and felt blah, so I headed back to the hotel while Monica continued on for a few more miles. Breakfast On my walk back to the hotel, I stopped by Starbucks where I bought an egg white and spinach wrap, banana,…

Hi, friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! Murphy’s week didn’t start off great, but I assume it’s because of his involvement with PAMC. I’m happy to report though that Murphy is feeling a lot better today. He ate a delicious dog treat from Oahu this morning, so he’s been in a fabulous mood ever since. Breakfast My morning started with a bowl of whipped plantain coconut yogurt””same as yesterday, but…

After lunch yesterday, I got ready to go to the gym. I put on my workout gear and then packed up my gym bag because I planned to take a shower at the gym before my doctor’s appointment. While I was packing, I thought it might be fun to show you guys what’s in my gym bag. Here’s what’s in my gym bag: Lug Life Cartwheel Overnight/Gym Bag: This is the best gym (and overnight)…

Hi, friends! How are you? I hope Tuesday is treating you well! Breakfast This morning’s breakfast was the usual (French Toast Breakfast Scramble), but I added fresh raspberries and almond butter (x 2) this time. I know, I’m totally unpredictable. Workout After breakfast, I took Murphy to the dog park. I planned to run 5 miles today, but my quads are smoked from yesterday’s WOD, so I switched it up with a 2-mile run/walk with…

Our little pug patient is feeling quite a bit better today. His eyes still look a little cloudy, but they’re not nearly as watery and booger-y as they were a few days ago. Murphy has a check-up with the vet tomorrow afternoon, so, hopefully, we’ll hear some good news then. At least he’s back to his normal weird pug self. Breakfast I finally got burnt out on peanut butter and banana wraps, so I made…

What a cool event! Fitness did an awesome job with the Blogger Meet & Tweet! I’m so glad I had the opportunity to attend. The event was held at the Metropolitan Suite in the Chelsea/Flatiron area of New York City. Theodora got her tweet on! Ahhh! Speaker badge! So cool! When we arrived, everyone was given a “passport” and encouraged to visit each of the event’s sponsors. We were told once we completed it, we’d…

Hi, friends! Around 3:00 this afternoon, I arrived safe and sound at Penn Station and then headed directly to my hotel for my stay in New York City. It was less than a mile away, so I hoofed it instead of taking a cab. I love hotels, so here are some photos of my room (aka the special place)! Nice, right? The wonderful folks from Fitfluential and Fitness magazine invited me to speak on a…

Exciting news! Carrots ”˜N’ Cake was nominated for “Best Healthy Eating Blog” at Fitness Magazine! Woohoo! What an honor. If you have a minute, I’d LOVE for you to vote for CNC. It only takes a few seconds! Pretty please? Breakfast I woke up craving nut butter this morning, so I toasted up a couple of gluten-free waffles (FYI: the Nature’s Path brand is amazingly delicious) and spread Teddie peanut butter on one and Barney…

I ran 15 miles today. Yep, you read that correctly: 15 miles. I have no idea how it happened, but it did. And it was awesome. Clearly, we take marathon training very seriously. Theodora had 20 miles on her training schedule today, so she left her apartment bright and early to start her long run. (I ate breakfast and hung out with Bailey.) The FITNESS Magazine 4-miler started at 10:00 AM, so I ran 3…

Home sweet home. I loved waking up in my own bed and enjoying a homemade breakfast with a pug sleeping on my lap. It doesn’t get better than that! 😀 This morning, I enjoyed a wonderful bowl of overnight oats and a glass of toasted coconut iced coffee with vanilla soymilk. In the mix: 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats 1/4 cup oat bran 1/2 cup vanilla soymilk 1/4 cup water Walnuts Chocolate-covered cranberries Barney Butter I’ve…

You guys already read the post about my video shoot in New York City for Fitness Magazine and Crystal Light Pure Fitness, but I thought it’d be fun to show you some of the “behind the scenes” action, too! My morning started bright and early with a visit from the hair and make-up artist at my hotel room. Fancy, huh? She got right to work and prettied me up. (Obviously, I like to look my…
