Starting the Weekend Right

It was a verrry busy week at work and I had no time to write! I’m so happy it’s the weekend! Ryan and I always try to sleep in and have a healthy breakfast to start the weekend right.

This morning we tried a new granola that is AMAZING. It’s super fresh and tasty (and dairy and gluten free!!!). I might be a little obsessed with it. We mix it with greek yogurt and put honey on top. Ryan is very picky about granola and he loved it too.


Because our little household loves WildWay granola so much we’re going to give away a bag for you to try!!! Check out their web site here.

Contest will end Tuesday, November 19th 🙂

As of yesterday I decided to stop eating meat. After watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead I really wanted to eat healthier. Cut down on sugar, processed foods and most of all meat. 

My goal: No consumption of meat for one month.
No chicken, pork, beef, or fish. For me, that hardest will be not eating fish. But I know I can do it. If the guy in Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead can drink only juice for 60 days I can go without eating meat. Easy. 
(i hope)


So here we go! Catie’s No Eating Meat Month Starts Now! (actually yesterday)… 

Anyone else wanna join me?
February 8th – March 8th???

This morning I woke up and went to the gym. Lately I haven’t been good about getting to the gym before work and I’m so happy I pulled myself out of bed and went today!

Before the gym….

Then I drank some of this (coffee protein drink – love it) and felt awake and ready to go!

I got a great workout on the elliptical and felt awesome!!! (Still pretty excited about the Ducks big win)

I hadn’t been on an elliptical in a long time and it was great to mix up my workout. My legs are still pretty sore from the past workouts this week so I thought this would give them a good break.

After the gym and I had my Meta-D drink from the Tone It Up Plan… It doesn’t look pretty but it tastes pretty good and it boosts your metabolism. So why not?! Healthy and toned in 2012 here I come!

This weekend  Ryan and I are going to New Jersey. My goal is to get a semi-long run in either Saturday or Sunday. Crossing my fingers I do it!!!

Anyone else use protein drinks??? I love Click. It really tastes like coffee!

How do you get to the gym in the morning?? What motivates you? Before the Portland Marathon I was so good about it! Now… not so much…

Why wait until 2012?!

Look at all that healthy food. Even though we have a couple of days until the new year I decided to start off on the right foot. Why wait until 2012?!

Last night I did a three mile run and went to total body conditioning class. Between my run and the class I had a little over an hour to grocery shop and eat. When I went to the store I was on a mission – HEALTHY FOODS ONLY. And I did it! 

I felt great last night and this morning. What you eat really does effect how you feel! Saturday I’m running ten miles with my friend Ashley and then it’s New Years party time! Two of my friends from home (Oregon) will be in town and a bunch of us are going out! Very fun 🙂

Anyone already make some New Year’s resolutions??? I’ve only made one so far – healthy eating!

What are you doing for New Years?  We’re going to Katra!!!
