    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.

Waking Up Is Hard To Do

The one day this weekend I can sleep in, we of course have a meeting we have to attend.  I could’ve totally slept until noon today, I’m for certain.  Instead, I forced myself out of bed this morning at 8 to get ready for the day.

I didn’t allow myself enough time to make a proper breakfast so I grabbed the Bear Naked bar they gave out after my 10k yesterday and ate that on the way to our meeting.

This one was the tropical fruit bar and to be honest, the date syrup and all the other ingredients that made up the syrup made it seem like I was eating a highly processed sugar granola bar but all the ingredients are natural and you can pronounce them!  No high fructose corn syrup here. Love that!  It wouldn’t be my first go to bar to grab because the coconut flavor came though a little too much for me.  I’m just not a coconut lover.  But it was good enough to hold me over until we could get home and make lunch.

Lunch was actually brunch.  I had two eggs scrambled, Morningstar “sausage” vegan patty, half of a sliced red apple and a mandarin.  Next time I’ll do one egg because two was a little too much, I think.

I might have stolen a bite of the hubs pillsbury biscuit that he had topped with butter and honey.  Yum…

Since I cleaned everything from top to bottom yesterday, I have all day to chill out and rest my body.  The hubs is leading worship tonight so he’ll be gone most of the afternoon and night so that means I get to catch up on my girlie DVR shows that he, obviously, wouldn’t want to watch.

I’m also making a wonderful home cooked comfort meal tonight that I ate growing up.  My mom’s recipe of Tuna Noodle Casserole.  So stay tuned for some comfort food goodness later tonight!!

What do your Sunday’s usually look like?

  1. Enjoy a relaxing Sunday. You deserve it. Mine are usually filled with workouts, errands, cleaning. Today I’m not leaving the house, staying in my sweats, and working on chores (here and there).

  2. I would love the recipe for the casserole if you wouldn’t mind sharing!

  3. Sunday’s = Brunch with my family, shopping sometimes, lazing around, dinner with hubby’s family!
