    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.

“Sloppy Joe Sloppy Sloppy Joe…in lunch lady land.”

Nothing too exciting to report around here.  The rest of the afternoon was laid back until I needed to get ready for church.

Following church I headed home alone since the hubs was leading worship for both services tonight. I ended up eating 4 unpictured wheat crackers with hummus to tide me over until dinner since he wasn’t going to get home until almost 9 p.m.  So I ended up doing some arm and ab strength training and feel great.  So glad I got it in.  I’ve neglected strength training and wish I hadn’t.  I got on a path of doing it maybe once or twice a week, sometimes not at all, and haven’t made it a priority in my quest to live the healthiest lifestyle.

I got in some good Oscar watching while I worked out and ended up rewarding myself with a hot relaxing bath while I read some more of Bethenny Frankel’s book “Skinnygirl Dish”.  Love that book!!!

Before I knew it the hubs was calling to say he was on his way home so I quickly hopped up to get dinner cooking.  Not that it takes a lot of prep or cooking time but I still wanted it ready for when he got home.

Ah, sloppy joe, how I love you.

With baked BBQ Lay’s on the side.  Obvi.

I ended up splitting another half of a sandwich with the hubs because I was starving!  And the buns really weren’t large so I didn’t feel bad.  I do wish they were wheat buns though.  Maybe next time.  We just haven’t found any wheat buns where we like the taste.

After dinner I decided fruit was in order.  A mandarin with red grapes.  A repeat from last night but good nonetheless.

I’ve packed up the rest of the sloppy joe meat for lunch tomorrow, snacks and breakfast and am set to get back into the grind of work.

Hope you all had a great weekend!  See you on Monday!

What’s your favorite brand of wheat buns (hamburger or hot dog)?

  1. I like those flat buns that they are selling nowadays! They let you taste the burger more.
