Ok, so I didn’t get anything crazy done with my hair cut. I’m a wuss and I’ve had my hair like this for about 9 years 😉 The stylist thinned it out and cut off enough to cover a small animal and it feels healthy and fresh.

Check out the shirt I wore today:



So today has been pretty lovely 😀

I started the morning with an incredible 60-minute YogaDownload podcast (Power Yoga #1) then meandered down to the kitchen to grab some fruit:


I got my hair cut, grabbed some new sneaks, went to work for a while, then came home to snack on an egg puff between appointments.


(2 egg whites, nutritional yeast and red pepper flakes)

I went back to work for a training appt, then took my new sneaks out on a 4.5 mile test run. They felt AMAZING- Asics never do me wrong 😀

While I was running, I listened to the “We Are the World 25 for Haiti” song twice. When I bought it, I honestly just wanted to donate to the cause and wasn’t really expecting to love the song… well, I love it. I also love that the Grobanater (aka Josh Groban) is in it. Yes, I’m 90 years old…. and proud 😀

When I came back to the casa, I stretched out, grabbed a giant glass of coconut water:

coco water

and an equally giant salad beast:


Greens, cucumber, bell pepper, grape tomatoes, shallot, goat cheese and Organicville balsamic. Foodgasmic 😀

Now it’s time to get my booty back to work, then coming home to make dinner for the pilot and I.

Thank you so much for all of your pre-race bfast ideas!!! The girls and I are doing 6 miles on Sunday, so I’m going to experiment with something new.

Enjoy the rest of your day!



Something to think: “One more”. One more minute, rep, lap around the track, whatever you’re doing. When you think you have just one left, do one more. You’ll be surprised how you can push yourself 🙂

    I was feeling lazy and thinking about skipping my run, but this post has totally motivated me. I just got new sneaks last week too and they’re super comfy and just waiting for a little 3 miler.

      do it! you’ll feel amazing when you’re done, just rock out to some good music 🙂

    I’ve been completely slacking lately, but now I feel inspired to out and do my 7 miler that was originally scheduled for Monday. With my marathon 1.5 months away I can’t give up now!!

    Great t-shirt! I love your new sneakers. It’s always hard for me to get a haircut because I’m so nervous that they will mess something up.

    Love the idea of one more…i forget it too often. Hair looks great, would love to see what you look like w something different, for kicks 🙂

    yay for coconut water, that’s one of my favorite things you’ve introduced me to!

    You have me hooked on coconut water! I bought some the other day and absolutely love it – it’s great after a long run.

    Thanks for the “one more” idea. If I’m getting tired towards the end of a run I could down the minutes, or say I’ll go to a certain time and just say “one more minute … one more minute” until I hit my goal. I’m upping my mileage this weekend so I’ll definitely need that!

    I lovee your shirt! Where did ya get it? I’d love to rock that at the gym too 🙂

    I love the Grobster, haha…I’m glad that you can admit you’re secretly a 90 year old woman inside, and it COMPLETELY resonates with me. I’ll admit that I listen to Groban (and Buble) a time or two every once and a while 🙂

    • Fitnessista on February 24, 2010 at 9:54 pm

      ahhh buble! my other husband 😀 he just doesn’t know it yet

    I love your “Something to think” or “Tips” section.
    I definitely keep that thought in mind when going through my circuit training, and end up doing one more rep. A few other quotes I keep in mind are “Push the stress out”, and “This is not the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” They REALLY keep me going! 🙂

    That bowl of berries/bananas must’ve tasted as good as it looks. And I always love your egg puffs.

    Josh Groban is one of my favorite classical-pop singer after Hayley Westenra*:,
