Awww, you guys!

So there I was, checking up on blog, reading all the wonderful comments you leave...
And BOOM! I have over 100 followers!
This means the world to me, I am so excited to have a connection with each of you. I love reading your blogs and learning more about you. I pick up muchos tips about running, health, recipes, and life--so thanks! If you were here I would let you pick one of these desserts as your reward:


His and Hers desserts!

His: Greek yogurt with cocoa puffs and strawberries
Hers: Greek yogurt with strawberries, grapes, and chopped almonds

Poor hubs has to eat his out of a tupperware container. No biggie. These tasty treats followed a delicious dinner of ricotta manicotti and sliced cucumber. Of course some rye bread on the side to sop up all the yummy tomato sauce. 


And now I'm off to watch a 90 minute episode of Glee. Please someone say they love this show so I don't feel too lame. Thanks!

Tell me, tell me: what is your favorite show you're embarrassed to tell people you watch?
I may or may not watch any/all of the Kardashian shows when I'm foam rolling. They're always on E! Sometimes it's the best 15 minutes of my day. Don't judge. 

Which dessert would you pick?
So Im doing sugar-free, so technically I HAVE to pick mine, but actually I think I would anyway! Almonds add some much needed crunch to the mix.

  1. I absolutely love glee but I lost power about 30minutes ago due to hail and severe rain here in PA. So I will have to catch it online I hope. Or hope someone recorded it.

  6. Hooray for 101 followers! And I would pick your dessert. But brace yourself for the next answer because I sometimes find myself watching Hannah Montana. If that's not embarrassing, I don't know what is!

  7. I would pick your desert for sure :) I am on a fruit kick and those are two of my fav fruit, I do like a good crunch too!

    Congrats on 100 girl!

  8. I have a closet obsession for the Real Housewives shows. I always play like I don't watch them, but I always do.

    Your dessert is a winner because it has strawberries, they win every time.

  9. Congrats girl! Maybe I'll be at 100 someday too! :)

  10. Love your dessert! I am going to be trying greek yogurt next week for the first time. I am a little nervous!

  11. Okay I have several guilty pleasures that I am sorta embarrassed to watch: Kendra, Holly's World, Jerseylicious (this one is awesome, check it out) and Tori & Dean (not embarrassed by this one, I truly adore this two!)I have never watched Glee, but my sister says it's pretty good.

  12. yayyyy!! for 100!! congrats girl! you are awesome and amazing and I LOVE following you :)

    I would definitely choose your dessert...yummy. (and I even love chocolate but yours just looks so delicious!)

  13. Oh I love Glee! I wish I could watch it but we don't have cable :( I will just have to wait until it is on Netflix.

    my guilty pleasure that I am embarrassed to tell is that I like to watch the cheesy ABC Family shows like: Make it or Break it and The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
    The shows don't have the greatest acting but I just can't stay away! lol

  14. oh, i'm going to have to catch up on your blog since i just became a follower! going sugar free, huh? that's been weighing on my mind lately. curious to read more about it...

    i'm not a Glee watcher, but i did catch one episode and liked it. i just don't commit to many shows. my husband and i love Community, which tends to be very strange and quirky. i think it may be going away soon, actually. i love Phineas & Ferb too! ( :

  15. I love the Kardashians! I don't like people to know that I actual love Lifetime movies. I haven't ever watched Glee, but I am a big musical lover so I know I would like it...I'll check it out on Hulu. Congrats on 100!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I can't seem to turn away either when I catch a Kardashian on E! I don't even particularly like them, but I always stop when I see their show on.

    I love almonds, too! I probably would pick your dessert, too :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ooo I LOVE the idea of cocoa puffs and greek yogurt. YUM! However...the almonds might make me lean a little more towards yours.

    Congrats on 100 followers, I hope to get there someday soon :-)

  18. How exciting reaching 100! Hope I can get there someday! I'll join the club and start following you. I like your sense of humor!

    Man those Kardashians are everywhere! And I love watching all their shows. I'm not embarassed about it...but I am embarassed that I follow kloe on twitter.

    I wouldn't pick either dessert. I'd put them all in the same bowl and just eat it like that!

  19. I watch so much crap tv it is embarrassing. You would think I was a 15-year-old girl. The Vampire Diaries, Glee, 90210, Make it or Break it, and more. I don't like to have to think too hard when I watch tv!

    ReplyDelete
  20. As if the Kardashians weren't bad enough... I watched a few episodes of "Pretty Wild" one night and prayed no one would catch me!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wohoo for 100! Way to go lady! I am totally lame and watch 90210 and One tree hill. Both of which are filled with terrible acting and sometimes it is painful to watch but I just can't help myself ;-/
    Hands down, tiramisu is my fav!

  22. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Glee but our DVR deleted an episode and we are currently 3 episodes behind! I made my husband promise we could catch up on Friday. Your desserts sound awesome but can I have a brownie sundae instead?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't watch Glee, but the K's...heck ya! Who can resist, of course I feel guilty watching it like, "what is this world coming to?" Then I think, "It's your own fault, you are supporting their show thus contribution to the down fall of the future generation!!" :)

    How are you liking the no sugar? I read sugar changes the way we metabolize food, it's like a drug (technically) because it changes our blood levels, it's addictive and it has no nutritional value. The book also said you'd lose water weight right away because it causes one to retain water...um, it totally did. I think I lost a quick 4 pounds without doing anything but the no sugar for a few days. Good luck, keep us posted.

  24. Congrats on 100 followers! You are awesome.

    Your dinner and dessert both look fabulous. Too bad we don't live closer and you could cook for me. :)

    Have a wonderful day!!!

  27. LOVE glee!! I've been totally hating Gaga's new anthem but LOVED it on glee last night!! (;

    Congrats on 100 followers!!

  28. I'm not doing sugar free, but I'd totally pick your dessert. I prefer fruit over candy almost all the time.

    I loved last night's episode of Glee. I'm curious where they go with the OCD. On one hand, at her level it's debilitating enough that they probably SHOULD take a pro-medication stance, but on the other hand, they need to emphasize that not everything needs to be fixed with medication.

    I watch every single Bachelor related show. Totally addicted.

  29. I also foam roll to good-bad television! Usually The Rachel Zoe project or basically, anything else on Bravo!

    Congrats on being over the 100 hump! Can't wait till I get there! ;)

  32. I love Glee too. Please come to my house and make dinners (and desserts) for me!

Are You a Salty Sweater? The Truth About Sodium and Running

Before I started running regularly, I did my best to avoid salt. After all, if you want to lose weight you're supposed to reduce sodium, right? Here's what the American Federal Government's recommendations for sodium intake (as of January 2011)

-if you're 51+ years old, black, have hypertension, kidney disease or diabetes, you get 1,500 mg. each day
-if you're a healthy adult, you get 2,300 mg. per day. A teaspoon. 




Now most of the time, I don't have an issue with this. Salt isn't used too much in my cooking, and I avoid a lot of common processed foods filled with sodium. When I do indulge in a salty meal, usually from a restaurant, I get the associated water weight gain and bloating. So I'm happy to stick to my meeting my 2,300 mg. requirements each day.

And then...summer arrives. If you're running in high humidity, you sweat. A lot. It's not pretty, and you're draining your body of electrolytes like sodium. On my long runs, I take precauti…

DIY Treadmill Desk

Working from home has its perks. Sure, my social interaction skills are deteriorating rapidly and casual dress Fridays now include those old ratty boxers and that one race shirt with the hole, but I also get to enjoy things like eating lunch at 10:30 because I feel like it and deciding where I want to work. Like on the treadmill.



Between working at my desk all day, using my computer for fun and then sitting on the couch watching television most nights for an hour or two, it's safe to say I sit on my ass a lot. And yep, that's not so great for you. Even though I work out 6 days a week, I hate that I spend easily 75% of my waking hours sitting.

On a whim, I asked Tim if he could build me a treadmill desk. I've seen these massive contraptions to make treadmill desks, but they basically transform it into a full-time desk, and I still want to use my treadmill for running (sans desk) as well. Magic carpenter man took a few measurements and brought me in a prototype by lunchtime.…

I Wanna Play! My 7 Links

I've been loving the "7 Links" Posts circulating the blogging world lately, so when I was tagged by Holly at Rust Belt Runner I couldn't wait to participate. Without further ado, here are my Seven Links...



Most Popular Post: Aside from giveaways (and we know why those are popular), one of my most read and commented on post was about my Weight Loss Journey. It got so much attention, it deserved it's own little tab at the top of my page!

Most Controversial Post: My post Good Person > Good Racer was possibly the most controversial. I talked about my own experience racing with my husband, and whether or not it is racer etiquette (or just plain rude) to pass someone when you planned on running together. Lots of differing options in this area!



Most Helpful Post: One of my earlier posts was titled What's Worth It, and recapped some running extras and whether or not they're beneficial. I go so much great feedback on products like foam rollers, compression sock…
