    I'm Lauren and this is a blog dedicated to living life with a healthy balance. I love to run, strength train, bike and just be downright active. I'm a marathoner as of April 24, 2010 and am currently looking forward to qualifying for the Boston Marathon.

    I absolutely love to eat and enjoy great food but doing it all in moderation. You'll see healthy, organic foods on here frequently but you'll also run into things such as pizza and sweets. I believe you can have it all... just not all at once.

    I'm always learning and discovering new foods, recipes, workouts and ways to live a healthy lifestyle. Join me on my journey towards becoming my healthiest self.

Too Busy

I’m super glad to be home finally!  Today was so busy at work.  At least it went by pretty quickly.  I was worried that it would get busy because the snow had moved in over night!  Another four inches for us.

At least I got a good breakfast in of raisin bran cereal.

Thank goodness we had a medical rep bring us lunch today.  I decided on half of a chicken ceasar wrap with a side of coleslaw and fruit salad with a few chips.  Satisfying enough to get me through the rest of the day.

No afternoon snack for me because of the busyness of the rest of the day.

Since the hubs took me to work this morning because of the snow, he was waiting on me when I got off work.  I love that!  We decided to stop by a Mexican restaurant and get some dinner.  I had a few several chips with salsa at dinner and ordered a chicken soft taco.  Something simple and small.

We came home to eat a couple spoonfuls of vanilla ice cream on top of half of a chocolate chip cookie the medical rep brought us today.  I am promising myself that I’ll be eating cleaner throughout the rest of the week.  I’ve been completely indulging in a lot of rich and sweet foods so I need to cool it for a little while.  I can feel my body screaming at me.  Isn’t it weird that with just a couple of days eating differently that you’re body feels the affects?!

I wish I could go running tonight but it’s a sheet of ice on the pavement and I don’t want to risk injury when I’m this close to completing my goal of running the marathon!  So hopefully I’ll be pounding the pavement again soon!  Ice ice go away!!!

I just got off the phone with one of my dearest friends and I’m off to enjoy a couple of hours before bed.  Time to watch The Bachelor!  Yippee!!  Guilty pleasure for sure!  Hope you all had a great Monday and getting back in the swing of the week!

Question of the Day: Do you notice a difference, physically, when you revert back to unhealthy eating for a couple of days?
