Two things Tuesday

Hello, everyone! Hope you are having a fabulous Tuesday. I was finally able to locate my favorite ever work jeans (Gap - Always Skinny, Dark Rinse) in one size down, so I'm very excited to have a size that won't be hanging off my butt by the end of the day. Never a good look. :-) They are feeling a little snug this morning, but should be stretched out comfortably soon.

Purple sweater - Jcrew
White pocket tank - Martin & Osa
Skinny jeans - Gap
Black ballet flats - Nordstrom
Awesome bathroom shot - just for you!

Here are two random facts about me for this Tuesday:

1) Michael's family lives out of the country. Every other summer his parents come & live with us for three months. They don't speak English, & I don't speak their native tongue. They are super wonderful people, but it's a long, long three months.
2) I'm a Washington native but always complain about the spring weather. Always. Drives my husband crazy. I guess I feel like by the time April rolls around, we deserve a little sunshine here. I don't need 80 degrees or anything - just a few peeks of the sunshine so I can get a little vitamin D.

Eats (yesterday):
Yesterday was not my best eating day. I didn't get a chance to get in my cardio workout, & I ate much more sugar than I normally do. As a result, I had to have a light dinner to hit my calorie goals for the day. (I track my calories every day, as I'm trying to lose weight).

  • Breakfast: English muffin with morningstar sausage + coffee
  • Lunch: salad with a few tortilla chips + carrots/hummus
  • Snack: Dr Kracker + hummus
  • Snack (again): starburst & a reeses
  • Dinner: chicken & spinach salad with cottage cheese

I ate zero fruit yesterday, which is really unlike me. I shoot for 5 servings a day of fruit & vegetables. Better luck today!

My goal (once again) for today is to run 40 minutes without stopping. This is something I've tried before but have yet to accomplish. Today will be that day. I know I can do it.


  1. You can make today that day...Good luck!

  2. Good luck with your run! You can do it! I always tell myself just run another 3 minutes or 5 minutes to get through a hard run!

  3. Hey! Thanks for checking out my blog and thanks for the sweet comment :) congrats to yourself on the smaller pants! Isn't it such a great feeling?!

  4. You can make that goal of 40 minutes! Go you!
