Sweaty Sunday

Today I didn’t let my injury? Is that what I should call it? or my messed up brain/noggin? anyways- I didn’t let it get the best of me. I woke up knowing I wanted to do a 6 mile run today. I’ve been trying to build my mileage back up the smart way. Anyways I woke up with a normally bad head ache (going on 3 months and some change of non stop head aches), contributed from the lack of sleep because I just can’t sleep anymore, I toss and turn, and from being dehydrated. 

So I got antsy sitting around my house this morning and left for the gym at 9ish. (I am not cleared to run outside yet because they don’t want me getting stranded if it gets bad. If i stay on a treadmill as soon as the head aches get awful I can stop.) 

Todays 6 miler was a sweat but great one.  At mile 3 I was all “fudge this”, but then i said to myself do another 1/2 mile, so then at 3.5 I was like u can’t end on a half go to 4, at for i was like you’re an idiot go to 5, at 4.5 I knew I was def hitting 6. My headache was a 4 when I started and a 7 at least when I finished, I don’t think it has to do with the running though I think it has to do w the fact I’m freakin dehydrated like a beast


But I felt really good looking at the miles. I seriously have been playing it smart, not killing each run- just building and trying not to be a crazy psycho

Last night I went to the fair with some friend to see the Script concert!! They were really good and super sexxxiiii mmm love foreign accents 🙂 

And then headed out to my friends lake house to hang out for a bit where I met this gem!!

He looks evil here but was seriously the nicest greatest dog!! I can’t wait til I have my own apartment (not when I’m at school) and I can buy  a dog alll for myself haha I will be a dog lady NOT a cat lady for sure. 


Game plan for the rest of the day?? RELAXING AND DOING HOMEWORK

Oh and I’m thinking catching up on all the tv I’ve missed since I’m being thrifty…


Q- Who else is ready for fall?? I’m so sick of the heat and I really want to just wear jeans and a hoodie allll the time!! oh and drink pumpkin coffee and watch abc family movies

Sooooo there I feel like saving money  (because I’m a poor college student) and I thought “oh yah you don’t need cable or internet at your apartment”, I figure I can do my home work at the library and then when I’m at my apartment I’ll do productive things like more homework or reading… So far so good…but lack of posting has occurred…I’ll have to plan when I post when I go to the library!


Paleo is getting LEGIT and REAL and I’ve been I’d say 85% on it. Today my one non paleo thing was I had 5 tortilla chips in gauc…and half a cup cake from my grandma’s birthday party but that was all!

Here is my breakfast, it was left overs from dinner last night but I tossed an egg on it!

Ground beef, with zucchini and squash and I threw an ORGANIC EGG <– this was the first time I’ve ever had one. Holy crap look how white it is!! And it tasted better- dead serious. I’ve now converted.


Save money on internet, buy expensive eggs. Good plan…

Sooo yesterday on my way back to school my car overheated andddddd anyways so I quickly googled “how to fix an overheating car” and it told me to pop the hood, let it cool down then drive to a garage ASAP…. sooo as I was annoyed and going to my hood I accidently slammed the car door shut on my calf hahah this picture does not do it justice at all…it is swollen and bruised now hahah…whoops…

Despite the car problems I was only 5 minutes late to class- WINNING

I just wanted to show off my amazingly comfortable couch…ultimate nap-pad.


Uhh this is just a funny picture from my grandma’s house tonight…that is my lil step cousin thing? i dont know what she is haha my uncles wifes granddaughter she hooked the dog leash to her babys head hahahahahahah interesting…

Back to school back to school…oh wait what?

My oh shoot I should be at school right now face haha…and my I really don’t want to go back but I’m going to face…


Why am I a freak that doesn’t like college?? It doesn’t help that this internship has given me a taste of the real world and made me realize even more so that I 1) don’t want to do anything with my major and 2) am so sick of day in day out classes, I just want to graduate and get working!!!


So the start of the crazy commuting and appointments (well thats not starting…that’s continuing…) begins now! I’m on my way back to school/ my apartment and I start classes tomorrow!

Today was actually a pretty great freakin’ day, despite an increasingly worst head ache (don’t worry I see the dr.s again wednesday and I’m going to tell them whats up). I woke up early went to work then came home- still feeling good not all sluggish and tired- and immediately hit up the j-sizzle.


I RAN 5 miles!!!!!! This is the longest post skull-f*ckery (other than one 7 mile run which prob wasn’t smart of me so soon after the injury…but c’est la vie). So a solid 5 miles, about 42ish minutes. Mucho slower than in the past but this is a NEW start and a NEW training business.

Finished off with 15 minutes of elliptical and then abs and arms! I felt pretty freakin good today.


On top of it all my noms were mucho paleo-esque!


2 eggs, 2 whites, 2oz ham  and a banana

Snack: apple and almonds

Lunch: 4oz chicken, ate a tomato (like an apple LOLzzzzz), orange

Snack: Banana <–  I eat too many banana’s…. I can’t help it I was hungry post work out

Dinner: Spinach+Romain lettuce, avocado, fish, peppers+onion (sauteed) and salsa

Happy 3 month to my broken skull!!


I don’t know where I saw this….so it’s either on facebook, twitter, tumblr or someone else’s blog…so I’m really sorry for jacking your pic…but I really liked it 🙂

Such true rules to live by.


Today was extremely lazy… well because IRENE was in full effect up hurr in the north east (really wasn’t as serious as everyone thought it would be). However, since my accident left my skull broken and forming arthritis I have had a crappy headache (more than usual) for the past couple days and this morning was prob a 7 which it hasn’t been since I was sick.


BOO. By the way…. happy 3 month to my head!! Haha 3 months straight with a head ache, life changing things happening annnnd finally able to run. Things are looking up but still not what I would have thought my fall would be like 3 months ago…

My friend saved 2 baby squirrels this weekend (one already died 😦 ) but this one is Eli! And I got to play with it over the weekend…its tres adorbski.

I really enjoy this someecard…

So my mom asked me what I wanted for dinner before I leave tomorrow (even though I’ll be back frequently because of the job) but still traditions tradition, and well I said “protein pancakes” bahah so they had meatball subs…and I made blueberry protein pancakes.

1/3 cup new hope mills

1 mashed banana

handful of blueberries

1 tsp vanilla

1 scoop protein powder

1/4 ish cup water

NOMMM fav food…that and a turkey sandwhich.


Yeah this picture is scary, yeah I wore that out in public, YEAH THAT IS MY NEW IPHONE. Wuddup.

I’ll leave you with this eye candy (not me).

Marry. Me. Alcide.

I just had to share this picture. I follow @nomorebacon on twitter and he posted this picture yesterday. There is something about it that just makes me feel so spiritual and at ease. It’s currently my cell phone background and laptop background….

Since I got sent home sick yesterday from work I had to go in today and make up for all the calls/emails I missed yesterday (boo) but it wasn’t too bad. My voice is still manly and I def don’t feel 100% yet. On top of this cold/sickness thang it has made me get a ridiculously small amount of sleep. No sleep = worst headaches. Let’s just say I’ve been miserable haha

We had an earthquake here today!! I was a bit confused and thought I was just crazy…but then I went on facebook and everyones status’ were about it.

Went to the gym and did an hour elliptical- it felt good to move even though I still feel wicked crappy. Came home and grilled some chicken, zuchinni and squash! With Skim chocolate milk and water. Nice weather+back deck= Awesomesauce

I can’t stop

Today’s lesson folks, is in not believing the things you see on the internet….Yes these models are gorgeous, but lets take a lil look at the ridiculous photoshopping done on the right girl….

Yup- that doesn’t look right to me….

Went to wegmans and thought the world was about to end…

Thank god they had the massive container of vanilla still…

So I get this text from my mom tonight (she’s out to dinner with my dad for their anniversary)

This is such a proud moment…
