    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.

Snacking Along the Way

The rest of my day was gloriously spent laying out, cleaning, baking cookies and Community Group.

I ended up snacking throughout the rest of the day and not really eating a specific “dinner”.

First up was a mandarin.

Then it was half of a Danon vanilla flavored yogurt with added Bear Naked granola.

Last but not least it was an apple after we biked to community group. No peanut butter this time around.

I had to have a couple of tiny chocolate chip cookies I baked earlier!

When we opened up our door to take our bikes downstairs to bike to Community Group we had these gorgeous things sitting by our door.  I took a picture of every side so you could enjoy them as much as I am enjoying them!

They are absolutely gorgeous and smell divine!!  They are from a sweet, sweet friend who we’ve met with a couple of times to talk to and walk through a stage of life with and she sent us these for a thank you!  How amazing is she?

I had to take a picture of the card she wrote because I think it is one of the sweetest cards I’ve ever received.

This has put a smile on my face and a warmth in my heart.

I am now off to bed and am pretty sure I will sleep well tonight.  I’m scheduled to work tomorrow but it wouldn’t surprise me if I got put on call.  But I’m prepared either way.  See you tomorrow!!!

Have you ever been surprised with a random gift of thanks?  If so, with what?
