I think I’ve Realized that I need to be eating at least 1850 calories a day with all the running I’m doing. So I’ve broken it down:

400 calories per meal = 1200

200 calories per snack = 400

250 for drinks w friends = 250

now i know this is actually 1650 but throughout the day things always get hectic so I’m thinking I should leave myself some wiggle room.

i walk at least 1.2 miles per day that I work so 3.6 miles a week = 270 

this week i will have run 25.5 miles = 2550 calories (at least)

so in order to lose a lb this week, i somehow i need a calorie deficit of 780 whether it be food or more walking… i can definitely do that!


Coffee w Soy Milk - 50 calories

Chobani Greek Yogurt w/ Banana Nut Cheerios - 153 calories

Cinnamon Raisin Toast (1 slice) w butter - 95 calories


Fiber 1 bar - 140 calories


Turkey Sandwich w/ Howards sweet peper relish and vegetables: 185 calories

Gala apple: 80 calories

Total: 703 calories

this weekend was full of so many events that I thought I was going to be super unhealthy about but I actually steered away from eating fast food despite all the driving and cooking out and etc! i did the 30ds and ran 3 miles today, i’m feeling pretty good :) i’ve decided that ultimately, although i want to be as healthy as I can when I can, it’s not going to be possible to eat organic every time i need to eat because i’m constantly travelling to see friends and i don’t want to come off as picky/snobby. but i’m going to do my best and eat things in moderation! and that’s the best i can do!

Apple Nachos | Manifestvegan 
3 crispy and slightly tart apples
1 tsp lemon juice
3 tbsp creamy natural peanut butter
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup pecans
1/4 cup flaked unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips“ For these, I sliced up some apples thin enough so it would be easy to eat the slice in one or two bites. I also lightly spritzed the apples with lemon juice to keep them from browning too fast.
Then I melted some peanut butter–until it was super runny–and drizzled it all over the apples. Next, I topped the apples and peanut butter with unsweetened flaked coconut, sliced almonds, a few pecans and, of course, chocolate chips. And finally, I drizzled a little more peanut butter onto the plate. Ya know, for good measure.”

Shot I just snapped and posted on Instagram!
My body is always a work in progress for me. I’ll never be fully satisfied, but that is part of what keeps me working hard and challenging myself both inside the gym with the weights and outside the gym with my nutrition and sleep. =)

BIKINI GIF!!!! 1 of 2. Do the whole Bikini Blaster video with me here. Reblog if you like this workout! Here’s 2 of 2 of this gif to complete the set.

last summer i came home and had gained 10 lbs at college, weighing in at 158lbs. i made it my goal to get down to 140 and eventually succeeded by september. 

over the course of this year i only managed to gain 5 lbs. monday i came home and weighed in at around 145. 

This summer vs. Last summer stats:

June 16, 2011

weight: 151.7 Hips: 37” Waist: 30.5”

June 6, 2012

weight: 143.3 Hips: 34.5” Waist: 28”

and where I am now was where I was on August 19th of last year. 

I really do think that I can get to my goal weight by the end of this summer with all the marathon training and the 30ds! exciting!
