Running Diva + The Best Lunch

by tinareale on February 10, 2012

Another week flown by…another weekend countdown. Another week full of smiles…and falling in love with quotes on Pinterest. Another long run awaiting me this morning. So, let’s get started!

4 Things Making Me Smile This Week

  • Earlier in the week, I found out from Tara that I had won a giveaway she hosted for a Running Divas shirt. I received it Wednesday, wore it on Thursday’s run, and immediately fell in love. Cute, comfy, and functional! Just what I like.


  • The excitement for Best Body Bootcamp! Keep those entries coming!! 25+ and counting…
  • I had the best lunch. A whole wheat tortilla with eggs, black beans, spinach, salsa, and pepperjack cheese. With a sliced apple and Courtney’s honey cinnamon peanut butter for dipping on the side. Can you say YUM?!


  • The gorgeous weather! It has been sunny and mild temperatures all week. Let’s just pretend that I’m not having to run in 30 degree temps this morning, though.

2 Blogs To Check Out

I drool over every recipe she shares…plus, they are usually kid friendly and always healthy. Let’s just say I have my eye on the 1 Minute Sugar Free Brownie she just posted!

Fun, down to earth, and always a good read. Plus, I want her to take me on a beer night.

I have just recently started reading your blog and you have an amazing story!!!!! I, like almost every other blogger, have had my struggles, but every day I get better and better!!
The thing that made me smile this week was taking two days off from exercises and not caring at all – it felt so liberating and awesome – I love being at peace with taking days off from exercise :) It is so important to have balance in life for sure.
Also, the wrap looks delish! yum :)

I definitely smiled when I took my dog to puppy preschool this week. It is so cute to see him interact with all the other puppies and watch their wiggly little bodies play wrestle! Melts my heart :-)

A night out with friends yesterday definitely made me smile…as did my HIIT run this morning (although not during ;) ). Have a great Saturday!

I love the shirt! SO cute! If I was a runner I would totally buy one!

Congrats on the 25+ sign up for bootcamp! How awesome!

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your loves! <3

“we must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us” <– that's been my favorite quote this week too! :)

Just pinned the third quote; so applicable to where I’m at, brilliant. (That wrap also sounds incredible btw! :) )

Aww, I love the pic of your little girl at the daddy donut party :) . That’s a really cool t-shirt you won in the giveaway. I won some shoe inserts in one recently and they were pretty awesome too, I love how the blog world has things like giveaways and also recipes that others have tried, much better than a cookbook.

My job brought in free cupcakes and candy and had a little party for us yesterday… definitely made me smile!

Hope you have a good weekend.
