Now thatโ€™s my kinda candy ๐Ÿ˜€

I started this lovely holiday with a Fitnessista bfast cookie:


(1/3 cup oats, 1/2 banana, 1/2 T AB and another 1/2 drizzled on top, 1 T carob, splash almond milk, sea salt, Stevia, vanilla)

and a 5k road race:


I ran with my friend Meara, and even though it thoroughly kicked my booty, I finished in 25:10 (clock time) and 24:53 (watch time). I was pretty stoked, especially since I walked a couple of times. Meara and I definitely pushed each other — when I started to walk and she ran past me, I knew I had to catch up ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh Georgia, you make running very interesting with your 80% humidity ๐Ÿ˜‰

When I got back to the casa, I took a showa โ€“I was a sweaty beast!- and then made an overcooked organic egg puff (whoops!)


(Love the WINE PLATES! Thank you again Nana)

And some comfy carob drink:


Scrumptious snack


Then, I proceeded to crawl onto the couch and finish the Time Travelerโ€™s Wife. What. a. book. To be honest, it took a second for me to pull myself together to write this since I was crying like a baby (hence the โ€œbawl-o-weenโ€ title), but it was beyond amazing. I highly recommend it if you havenโ€™t read TTW yet. The movie really doesnโ€™t do it justice.

Well Iโ€™m off to stretch these muscles and do a 60 minute yoga podcast, then running some errands and spending the evening drinking vino with the girls ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a SAFE and very Happy Halloween!

  30. Happy Halloween! That cookie looks delish!

  31. The puppers!! So cute!

    Way to go with the 5k! Humidity is one thing I do not miss about the summer weather in MI – ugh!

  32. Yet Another Emily :] says:

    There are a lot of Emilys posting on this, haha.
    I read TTW this past summer and was bawling my head off too by the end- I think the only other book to make me cry that hard was My Sister’s Keeper. I don’t know if I’ll see the movie for either though- they changed the ending of MSK!!! How dare they!!!- because the books are just too darn good. I love movies but they rarely do the books justice.

  33. Congrats on the race! One question – how did you make the egg puff? I haven’t heard of them before. They sound yummy. ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. I never saw the movie for that exact reason! I read it years ago and it was instantly one of my favorites…I’m afraid the movie will take away from the beauty I imagine in my head. And, I’ll admit, I’ve read the end more than twice! And bawled every time!
