    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.

The Goodness of Dairy Kastle

We are back from our lovely walk to and from the amazing Dairy Kastle.

Look at this gorgeous tree outside of University of Louisville.

It was just as glorious as I remember.

On the menu for our dinner:

One hot dog with mustard, ketchup and relish for me.

Then the grand event!  Dessert!  I present to you the best Reese’s Cup flurry in the world!

It’s rather large.

I thought ahead and brought containers to put half of the flurry in so I could freeze it.

Normally I would have eaten the whole thing, and totally could’ve done that tonight but moderation is key.

I took my Garmin to see exactly how far the walk was each way and it’s about .90 miles each way.  Not too shabby.  Totally worth a great 20 minute walk to talk with the hubs and enjoy the great weather.

I’m off to take a hot bath, climb in bed and watch TV with the hubs.  I have so many Tivo shows to watch!  Wheeee!!!  I, unfortunately, am working tomorrow which is a bummer since it’s Easter Sunday but we have dinner plans with friends.  We’re making a roast and they’re handling the bread and dessert.  It should be a great time!  See you tomorrow!

Do you have any restaurants or spots you like to walk to grab dinner/dessert?

  1. We have a Tex-Mex place about 2 blocks over that we like to walk to for dinner occasionally. We don’t go too often as it’s not the healthiest food. They have fantastic cheese dip. MMMMMM

  2. I have a publix (grocery store) about 100 yards out my front door so I’m lucky enough to be able to grab ingredients and have home-made meals whenever need be 🙂

  3. Great great meal and dessert!! I’m such a fan of hotdogs and anything involving Reese’s! It sounds like a wonderful evening, especially since the weather was so beautiful that you could walk to and from the restaurant! So glad you’re doing well and had a great weekend! Have a wonderful night, love!!
