Good morning! Happy Tuesday! Yesterday morning started bright and early with a trip to Marylou’s for iced coffee. Mal and I both dropped the ball on making another batch, so we ended up buying our morning cup of joe. As always, Murphy wanted to come for a ride in the car. Pugs love adventures. There are actually quite a few Marylou’s locations near our house (I know, I am so lucky), but I opted for…

Good morning! Happy Friday! I started my morning with a new gluten-free product that I really liked, so I wanted to tell you guys about it. I found these Food for Life Gluten-Free English Muffins (Brown Rice) at Stop & Shop yesterday afternoon in the freezer section. They’re quite a bit different than the ones I tried from Trader Joe’s the other day. The ones from TJ’s were dry and little crumbly, but mostly soft…

Would you rather be really fast or really strong? I’ll let you think about it while I recap my eats from yesterday. How’s that sound? Breakfast My day started with a French Toast Breakfast Scramble in a jar (FTBSIAJ) with extra Teddie peanut butter. Even though there’s peanut butter on the sides and bottom of the jar, I always add more. Not joking, I probably eat 4-5 tablespoons (2-3 big scoops) of nut butter every…

Oh my gosh, I ate the best snack yesterday afternoon: sliced banana with peanut butter and Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter. Holy crap, it was delicious. That is all. Workout I was feeling kind of mellow yesterday afternoon, so I nixed CrossFit and went to yoga instead. I guess I was just in a funk. Usually, I’m pumped for CrossFit, but, yesterday, I just wanted a low-key workout. I took a 75-minute Vinyasa Flow class at…

Have you guys seen Girls on HBO? It’s a series about a group of twenty-something friends living in New York City. People have referred to it as a younger version of Sex and the City, which I can sort of see, but I actually liked the characters in that show. The characters in Girls are obnoxious (I’d never want to be friends with any of them in real life), but I can’t stop watching it….

Quick disclaimer: I created the half marathon training plan below for myself based on my goals and personal preferences. If you’re looking for a training plan, I suggest checking out Smart Coach from Runner’s World. It’s a great tool for designing customized plans. In the comment section of yesterday’s “I Want a PR” post, a number of people mentioned having great success with Hal Hidgon’s Half Marathon Intermediate Training Program. It has a nice mix…

It’s hard to tell who’s winning between Murphy and the couch. At first look, it seems like the pug is dominating his competition. Without much (if any) effort at all. But, when you look closer, it doesn’t seem like Murphy is very comfortable, so maybe the couch is winning after all? I dunno. It’s anyone’s call! Lunch Phenomenal lunch today! I had Creamy Broccoli Soup, but it didn’t come from a can for once. I…

Good morning, friends! Nothing says “happy holidays” like pug butt on your wrapping paper! Murphy is always so helpful. Aren’t all pugs? They love to be as close as possible to the action. Murphy honestly didn’t realize that he was in my way at all. Or maybe he did and just gave me the most pathetic pug face possible? Dinner Last night’s dinner was all over the place. I ended up having a Crème Brulée…

It’s probably not a surprise that I love peanut butter. But, I am starting to think that I might have a bit of peanut butter “problem.” Well, it’s actually more of a nut butter problem, but peanut butter is my favorite… closely followed by Barney Butter, of course. 😉 There’s just something so satisfying about peanut butter. I literally crave it when I wake up in the morning. It’s obviously delicious and it keeps me…
