    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.

Scooped Out

Good morning friends! What a great morning it has been! I biked into work this morning and am happy to report that it was finally warm enough to not have to wear a light jacket. I love that summer is right around the bend.

I decided to eat the wheat bagel from yesterday morning and scooped it out. I read about this concept in Bethenny Frankel’s book, “Naturally Thin” and haven’t done it until now.

Take your bagel, toast it, and scoop out the excess bread from the middle.



Look at all that bread I can throw away. I won’t even miss it. Cutting calories like this is so easy!

Add your topping in the scooped out part and you’re good to go. I was a cream cheese girl this morning.

There’s your tip for the day! See y’all at lunch!
