20 sumo deadlift high pull
20 push press
60 double unders
(95/65#, use same bar throughout)
Time, 14:22, rx'ed

45 min Spin Class

I ran 4 miles after the gym with 2 clients, maintaining about a 9:45 m/m, and walked another 4 with the rest of my clients over the course of the day. Yeah, and by clients I mean face-licking, fur shedding, nuggets of energy!

All in all, it was a solid, sweaty day. 

And now I assume the horizontal position. 

Before the gym I had a few bites of this with a cup of coffee, the rest I save to eat after the gym.

I need to get more creative with food on the go, now that I'm always on the go! 

Go, go, goin' ...

Just a day at work. :)

The views of Atlanta, outside! Where I spend my days. 
I have to admit, if it weren't for the traffic, this city could be pretty amazing. Shoot, do you really ever think I'll admit I really might like it here? ;)

Sally was trying to eat help me with my dinner. An egg white omelette with a sprinkle of hard parmesean cheese, salsa verde from Trader Joes and half a bag of baby spinach leaves. 

Had to get my Popeye on, yo. Do you know how much protein is in spinach?!

I love egg white omelets because they're extra fluffy, like a food cloud. I think cooking the yolk in there makes for a denser egg-concoction, which I don't like. I do love yolks, I just prefer them over-easy, when they're all runny and gooey on top of things. 

Early morning for me, I'm off to bed, and taking this treat with me! I remember the first time I read this magazine, sitting in the Housing Office at Fort Hood after just getting married. Talk about an overwhelming time! I found a lot of comfort within the pages of that magazine, full of stories of women that were going through and experiencing all of the same feelings I was. 

What's your favorite on-the-go food?
I like foods that are easy to eat as I'm driving, because that's when I have the time to eat. So, I pack a lot of fruit, apples, plums, peaches and kiwi. I also like baby tomatoes. I love Power Crunch Bars, but if I can't find them I'll also buy Good n Natural and Think Thin Bars. I started slicing celery and sticking the peanut butter in the stick and then packing it, which makes for super easy eating on the road! 

What's your favorite magazine?
I subscribe to a million! Runner's World, Yoga Journal, Oxygen, Box Life, Time, Newsweek, Cooking Light. 


  1. Crunchy peanut butter thinkthin bars are my favorite go to snack/meal. So yummy and with 20 grams of protein, it keeps me full for such a long time!

  2. I have never even heard of the magazine Military Spouse! I will have to look into that! Thanks for mentioning it :)

    I really love the FitnessRx and Clean Eating magazines. Also, Travel and Leisure is really great. I got that to send to my husband in Afghanistan and I found I really like learning about all the beautiful hidden treasures around the world. It also makes for a long bucket list of places I want to someday visit!

  3. I love your blog! However, with an exercise day like you had, do you really think just eating an egg white omelete for dinner is enough? While I know this isn't all you ate during the day, that dinner has like 200 or less calories in it.
