4, 3, 2, 1... go!


...4 miles... 3 layers... 2 pairs of socks... 1 foot ice bath... and a protein shot spoonful later... it was finally time for lunch!

I did not intend for today's run to be fast or difficult. I just wanted to move, breathe, and enjoy. Half way through the run, my foot started feeling funky, and I got scared that the injury was coming back... Turns out I tied my sneakers too tight! And the 2 layers of socks that I was wearing weren't helping the lack of proper circulation either!

I may have looked hideous while running, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do when it's 20F degrees outside!

That icky looking thing on a spoon was a mixture of protein powder, chia seeds, and chocolate PB2 (and water) - a protein shot immediately post-run!

Lunch was a wonderful shmorgishborg!

Potato-broccoli-dill puree. Balsamic kale salad. Seitan Stroganoff + Mashed potatoes. Sauteed veggies. And Hummus!!!




There is nothing better than a warm bowl of soup and a cup of hot tea to defrost your body after the freezing outdoors and an ice bath!

...and a sweet treat will make it all better, too! {a jumbo cluster of KIND Healthy Grains Dark Chocolate & Cranberry Cluster = amazing}


Tonight, I'm going to a potluck dinner! Theme: Mexican food! ... I have 2 hours to figure out what to make and to make it! Any suggestions?

Stay warm!

xoxo. Veronica
