Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

lil’ late

Hey Blogfaces! Long time not talk…..

No therapy update today because I didn’t go. FREEDOM!!!!!! Back to the couch next week.

As you may or may not know,  Len and I are leaving on Friday for Nashville, TN. We are meeting my sister and her hubby there to run the Country Music HALF marathon. Unfortunately Len and I forgot to train so we’re pretty much screwed. There will be a whole lot of walking during that 13.1 miles. I’m pretty disappointed that we didn’t put any effort into preparing for this race but it’s too late to worry about it now. Luckily I have been active over the last month so I’m not COMPLETELY out of shape. Just….. mostly of out of shape. As of now, the forecast for Saturday says 78 and possibility of thunderstorms. If it gets any hotter than that someone’s going to die– and it will probably be me on the course. This hookers doesn’t do well in

I’m psyched to visit Nashville (Music City) since I’m a huge fan of country music. I want to explore everything so hopefully our legs won’t be too tired. The Country Music Marathon is extra cool because there’s a post race concert that night. My bro-in-law scored us back stage passes so we’ll be VIP bitches! Score. The singers are kinda lame (John Rich and Cowboy Troy) but it will still be fun! I get SO nervous around famous people so I’ll probably just stand there like a donkey.

Something weird happened at booty this morning. A random van pulled up and started promoting their product, Mix 1. (Keep in mind it was 6 in the morning and the trainers weren’t expecting it.)  I had never heard of the brand but grabbed three and ran for the hills : blueberry vanilla, mango, and mixed berry. The sugar content in them is pretty high so I probably won’t drink them but Len will. You guys know I have issues drinking my calories away.

Olive oil??? Weird.

Speaking of sugar, I forgot how amazing Banana bread Clif Bars are. They have little chocolate bits in them and really do taste like dessert…. stiff competition with Carrot Cake.

I just boiled cauliflower and it smells like a bag of ass in here. The wretched smell is so worth the bowl of excitement below.

mashed cauliflower mixed with 1/4 cup mozz, 4 soy nuggets and ketchup. be jealous.

  1. And that, my friend, is one of the many reasons I’ll only eat cauliflower raw… the smell weirds me out when you boil it…

    Good luck on the half! You have been very active- so I bet the endurance is better than you think!

  2. I have NEVER boiled cauliflower before…. and now that you’ve said that, I think I’ll probably stick to eating it raw!!

  3. I bet the half will be fine…you’ve been going to booty, which builds up endurance no doubt! My bff went to Vanderbilt, and I always loved visiting her– Nashville is such a fun town!

  4. You’ll be okay with the half…my BF keeps reminding me that race momentum can do a lot for your motivation and endurance!! Carrot Cake Clif is such an underrated flavor…the white chocolate chunks are the best!

  6. Hopefully having Len with you throughout the race will make it fly by… even if you’re not really flying by ;).

    You are the fuel behind my soy nugget addiction. I’d say it’s an honor!
