Just a Typical Tuesday

Usual day here.  Really, not very exciting, so if you decide to leave now, I will not be offended.  But, I will still go on because that is what I do……

I've been having a harder time waking up in the mornings and I think that's actually a good sign that I'm getting good night's rest.  Now that all those weeks of waking up multiple times throughout the night are behind me, I'm finally enjoying some glorious deep sleeps.  The only downside is it makes hopping out of bed at 4:15am more of a struggle. 

I managed out of bed and managed to run 5 miles.  Not the best run today, my legs felt very heavy and I started to notice a little pain in my IT band again, but I attribute this all to the fact that I wore 4 in stilettos to work the day before only proving the conception that beauty is indeed pain! 


1/4 Cup Cinnamon H2H, 1/4 Cup Cinnamon Puffins, 1/4 C Multigrain Cheerios, Vanilla Oikos, Berries, 1/2 Banana and flax with smide of cinnamon PB 

Sweet Toast (Cottage Cheese and Jam) 


I had lunch with a good friend and co-worker of mine today.  We went to one of our favorites…Juice and Java for some salads and smoothies. 

Greek Salad with Veggie Burger

Strawberry Banana Pineapple Smoothie 

Just an fyi…..a salad and a smoothie make a perfect lunch.  


I'm not quite sure what to call this bowl so I will just let the picture do the talking….

Spinach, Roasted Veggies (eggplant, mushrooms, broccoli, artichokes) Annie's Mac with pesto, TJ's White Beans with Tomato Sauce, and feta

What you'd like to call it, it was darn good! 

Toly's bowl was mac and cheese with sausage and bacon.  A growing boy's meal for sure! 

So as you can see, my day was nothing out of the ordinary.  It was good, but just a typical Tuesday. 



  1. I still can't believe you get up at 4:15am...I am going to bed closer and closer to that time these days. Your veggie bowl dinners are the most intriguing and delicious looking. Roasted veggies are da best.

  2. That breakfast looks amazing!! I wish I gave myself enough time to make something like that in the morning. Major props for getting up so early AND making such a tasty meal.

  3. Glad you feel like you're sleeping better! That is awesome. I get up around the same time, so I feel for ya ;) Dinner should be called a bowl of deliciousness, because thats what it is! Love seeing the his and hers versions. I'm ready for bed already!

  4. cannot believe that you wake up at 4:15 -- i wake up at 5:15 and even then i feel like i'm the only one awake in the world - what time do you go to bed?! i have a hard time getting in bed by 10:30! kudos to you girl, impressive!

  5. I will never complain about getting up at 5:30 ever again! What time do you go to sleep at night to make yourself get up that early?!?!

    Your salad and smoothie look like the perfect lunch!!

  6. your random dinner bowl looks pretty tasty!

  7. smoothie + salad IS a perfect lunch! if this is a usual day, i will happily take your eats :)

    hope you are well dear - off to catch up on all your posts!


  8. Sometimes typical days are great - nothing unexpected or crazy to get in your way!

    Glad to hear that you've been sleeping well. I hate it when I don't get enough sleep.

    Have a great Wednesday Lauren.

  9. That veggie bowl for dinner looks awesome!! Sometimes the best combos are just kind of a mix of delicious things.

    Since I've been home, I wake up early and can't get back to sleep, so I know where you're coming from when you say a deep sleep means it's harder to wake up!! Glad you've been getting some much needed ZZZ's though :)

    Hope you have a great hump day!

  10. a "growing boy's meal" :) I love it :)

    Nick's the same way! The more cheese and bacon, the better.

  11. That dinner bowl without a name looks amazing!!

  12. I am so glad to hear that your getting your sleep now :) thats awesome!

    i hate that feeling that your legs weigh 38098 pounds in the morning. thats usually why I run after breakfast.
