    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.

Movie Night

Today turned out to be completely different than I expected. Well, first of all, I ended up being ready for sleep at 10:15 last night so I’m getting closer to my 10 p.m. goal. Slowly but surely.

I really did feel more rested today, even with just a few minutes of extra sleep.

I got pulled to a completely different unit at work today and it was actually a nice change of pace.

I ended up eating a banana for breakfast instead of my usual cereal. A nice change of routine.

Lunch couldn’t have come quick enough. I was so hungry by 11 a.m.! But I was able to hold off until noon because one of our anesthesiologist had lunch delivered from a Medittaranian restaurant, Shiraz, in town. Ridiculously insane good.

My pita had a spread of hummus, chipotle sauce, loaded with roasted tomatoes, onion, zucchini, squash and two small pieces of chicken.

I also had a piece of mahi on a bed of lettuce and veggie salad that consisted of onion, cucumber, tomatoes and herbs.

All together.

I went back for unpictured seconds of the veggie salad and a couple slices of the roasted tomatoes topped with a little hummus and chipotle sauce.

That surely filled me up for the rest of the day so I didn’t eat again until “dinner”.

One of our friends received several free sneak peek movie tickets to see “The Bounty Hunter” featuring Gerard Butler and Jennifer Anniston.

I ate my “dinner” at the movie theater.

The hubs brought me a sliced apple, banana and grapes.

I ate it with 1.5 tbsps. of peanut butter.

And halfway through the movie I ate my trail mix I brought along. Dry roasted almonds, craisins and dark chocolate covered pieces of plum.

The movie was cute.  A definite renter for sure!  I don’t know if I’d  spend >$20 to see it in the theaters but I would definitely rent to watch at home.  I just love both of them!!

Well I’m finally home and it’s definitely past my bedtime of 10 p.m. but hopefully I’ll fall asleep in no time. My mood has been off kilter lately so I’m trying to figure out why. Hrmph. I don’t like feeling this way. Maybe tomorrow I’ll feel back to my normal self.

What time do you like to be in bed by?

  1. Nice snacks! During the week I try to get to bed by 8:30 at the latest to read. I love reading, but it makes me so sleepy. So, I read to put myself to sleep by 9-9:30. I know, so early right! However, I’m at work at 7am.

  2. I’m in bed by 10 – read until 1030-45. Get up at 630 and am magically at work by 725 (helps to shower at night!).

    Your lunch looks amazing…drooling… 🙂
