    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.

What a day it has turned out to be. I let my lunch digest for a bit and then got geared up for a run… then the hubs called with bad news. Our MacBook had crashed. Not good, not good at all.

So the hubs got home, we grabbed our external hard drive in hopes of the Apple geniuses to be able to revive our necessity of a computer and headed to the Apple store.

On the way to the store, I took pictures with my camera in the way of the snacks we ate. You won’t be seeing those and I’ll get to that part in a minute. But I know you can use your imagination and picture the Cascadian Farm Organic flax bar I ate on Saturday and my trail mix. The hubs ate one of the two bars that comes in the package and a few almonds.

We arrived at the Apple store and was bummed to find out that our MacBook will be out of commission for a few days. But we were really glad that the hard drive that needs replacing was under a quality investigation so it’s being replaced free of charge and we’re getting an upgrade from 8 gigs to 16 gigs! There’s always a silver lining. So that means you’ll be getting iPhone posts and iPhone quality photos for a few days so hang in there with me!!

We came home and decided since it was so gorgeous outside that it’d be the perfect time to go get my bicycle tuned up. I’m really excited to start biking to and from work again and biking any where near the loft that we need to go.

Safety first: Must wear a helmet!

After the bike was given the okay to ride again it was time to get used to the feeling of biking again. The hubs and I rode a short 5 miles around Old Louisville and headed back home because we were hungry for dinner!

Dinner was a simple grilled chicken breast, broccoli and cheese and peas.

The hubs was also kind enough to give me half of his Sister Schubert’s roll. Oh so good. I love bread!!!

We were really excited for us to be finished with dinner because that meant it was time to pick up a package the Easter bunny had tried to deliver earlier today when we weren’t home.

A bag full of Reese’s Cup eggs, Hershey’s bliss eggs, butterfinger eggs and kit kats for each of us.

A Dinstuhl’s big milk chocolate solid bunny! The best ever!!

My mom is the best! She never fails to make us an Easter basket. Even if she isn’t able to give it to us in person. I love that woman. She’s a pretty special lady. Thanks Mom!!! I’ll enjoy my chocolate as soon as Lent is over!

After we got home it was still pretty early and light outside so I decided a run was definitely in order. I ended up running 2 miles in 19 minutes and then walked a mile to cool down. My legs were feeling it after my bike ride earlier. My legs definitely have got to get used to using those different muscles again for biking.

I came inside, hopped in the shower and ate two mandarins and the rest of my red grapes.

Now I’m settled in for the night after a quite productive unexpected day off. Time to watch The Biggest Loser and be asleep by 10! Hope you had a fabulous Tuesday!

Do you bike? If you do, do you try to bike everywhere you can to be green, save gas, get exercise, etc.?
