    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.

Celebrating the Derby at Work

Working on Derby Day is sort of fun because we eat, try and watch the festivities on the TV and definitely try to watch the running of the horses. It’s all abuzz around here with talks of the celebs, horses, events, hats, etc. and it’s so fun!

One of our nurses brought in a grill to grill up some burgers! I’m all about it!

I started out with two helpings of salad topped with  carrots, radishes, tomatoes and cucumbers.  With a drizzle of buttermilk homemade ranch dressing.  I loved getting some veggies in my belly before the heavy stuff!

I split a burger with someone else and topped mine with mustard, ketchup, relish, tomato and lettuce.  I’m so glad I split because that was plenty!!  With some Lay’s sour cream ‘n’ onion chips, sweet slaw and baked beans.

I’m definitely satisfied.  Talks of me being sent home are flying around here so I might get to make some Derby parties after all!  We’ll see what crops up!

See you tonight!
