Week 4- This Side of the Bed

Hello reader! By the time you read this, I will have hopefully completed the Akron Half-Marathon with my goal of miles under eight minutes complete! We will see 🙂 More on that later. This week I felt like I was really doing it at my internship. I showed up at 7am on Monday morning and spent the day working and doing rather than sitting through more instructions … Continue reading Week 4- This Side of the Bed

Week 3- Constant Vigilance!

Do you know what has brought me a lot of pleasure during my mundane car rides all over the city of Akron? Since August I have been listening to audio books ( I still want to call them books on tape) and it’s been a nice change. I’ve been listening to Harry Potter. I don’t think I’ve ever reread the entire series since the last book came … Continue reading Week 3- Constant Vigilance!

I grocery shop, plan our meals, make … Continue reading Sunday Sampling

It … Continue reading The First Week- Paperwork and Due Dates

Peanut Butter and Strawberry Jam Pancakes

I have been loving smashing fruit into my peanut butter lately. My typical after work, pre-workout snack is a whole grain carb base, PB, and whatever berries I have on hand. Combinations include an English muffin with PB, raspberries, and a little honey, and a tortilla with PB, raspberries and blueberries. Also, strawberry-banana-PB was good on that tortilla. Until I started doing it, I kind of thought fruit and peanut … Continue reading Peanut Butter and Strawberry Jam Pancakes

The Long and Winding Colon

I have read that in blogging being successful is finding how you can relate and relay information to a certain populations. For better or worse, there are a lot of other people blogging about the things that I’m doing in life and want to talk about- dietetics student, runner, mending a food relationship, creating recipes. But I do have something else going on that might … Continue reading The Long and Winding Colon
