Going for Speed

I was going for speed….not distance.  I can’t tell you how many times during a run this song pops into my head.  I should probably stick it on my iPod.

 FITDistance:  2.0 miles
Time:  17:58
Avg. Pace:  8:59/mile

I was going for a liiiittle faster, but at about 1.25 miles, my iPod lost its charge.  Running without music is hard!  I know I did mile 1 just about or even under 8:00, so mile 2 was definitely slower. 

My groin is absolutely KILLING me today.  And there’s no hot yoga class today and I can’t make tomorrow’s.  What’s a girl to do?  Methinks yoga download hip opening flow this evening.


AM Snack:

amsnack  My first Vita-Top!  I bought these this weekend.  I got the banana nut flavor.  It was delicious!  I absolutely loved it and cannot wait to try other flavors!


lunch Randomness:  I had a bowl of leftover roasted broccoli and cauliflower from the previous night’s dinner and a grapefruit (which I ate orange style…never did this before).  I was going to have the Chobani and granola, but I was too full.  I wound up digging into the granola only and having just a bite or two of the yogurt. 

That’s my green tea hiding in the background.  My school only has styrofoam cups.  BUMM-ER.  It kills me a little inside every time I use one.

PM Snack:


I finished up the yogurt before I left school and then munched on these strawberries on the way home.  They don’t look too appetizing in this picture, but they were tasty.


P1020889I made my three bean turkey chili.  It was awesome as per usual.  A little spicy this time – but that’s the way (uh huh uh huh) I like it.


P1020890I had a TJ’s soy creamy mini ice cream sandwich.  See those ice crystals in the upper right hand corner?  Yeah, I’ve had these since summer.  It still tasted good!




I had a bowl of oat bran.  In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup oat bran
  • 1/3 cup each of water and almond milk
  • pinch of sea salt
  • splash of vanilla
  • cinnamon
  • mashed banana
  • spoonful of chocolate soynut butter (liked it much better as a mix-in than as a topping)
  • topped with plain Chobani

This was a tasty little bowl.  Not my favorite, but how could one compete with pumpkin and apple pie oats?  I mean, that’s just not fair.

It’s almost Friday!  Hooray!
