    Let a Snacker, Snack!

    Gimme all the food! I’ve been feeling really gross lately, so instead of wallowing in self pity, I thought I’d focus on being more positive and focus on the good. I want to sit here and write how disgusting and gross I feel. But no one wants to read a post full of self depreciating, whiny nonsense.  I wish I loved my body the way it is, as much as I know I’m supposed to love my body.  Sometimes our hormones and our brains don’t match what we know is right. I think that’s with everything in life. So, to stay positive and to help me make better choices, I…

    WIAW – Veggie Week Ugliness

    It’s that time of the month again! No, not that time of the month. It’s Veggie Week! So here are my eats from yesterday, pardon the plainness that went on – just keepin’ it real over here! But before I get into yesterday, venture over to Arman at The Big Man’s World, who is graciously hosting today’s linkup. Also, make sure you take a peek at where it all started with Jenn! I’d highly recommend stopping by either spots and taking a look at their drool worthy food, because mine will leave you ‘happy that you didn’t eat my eats yesterday’ 😉 Breakfast I’m trying to be resourceful (re: baller-on-a-budget)…

    Five Things (Finally It’s) Friday

    Oh hey Friday the 13th! Thanks, Clare! I was going to attempt to do what Clare does each week, but since I always share my life instantly, I don’t have much stuff saved up for FTF’s post. Also, I’m kinda in a writing rut. I know I just need to do a free write, but I haven’t had a post to do so. I know it’s my blog, but I tend to stick to the same schedule, for lack of a better word. Next week, I intend on doing a free write on one of the things I am most self conscious about, stay tuned! Since you already know my…

    Thinking Out Loud – What Happened…

    It’s already Thursday…. Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. Annual Meeting // Every year, here at work, we host an Annual Meeting for our grower owners. If you don’t get this, then sorry. We are a cooperative here at work, so we are owned by the growers who entrust us with their almonds. Once a year we put on a meeting to show them what we’ve been doing all year, to make their almonds make them money. Pretty simple right…it’s basically a scaled down version of a trade show. I am in charge of my division’s booth, so this week has been a little hectic at work. The show was a…

    WIAW – My Stint as a Faux Food Stylist

    When your job doesn’t suck… Thanks, Jenn! …you get to do cool stuff, like shop for carbs, eat carbs, play with carbs, food style carbs, watch a photographer take pictures of carbs, and get messy with carbs. Or almonds, but all you runners readers love carbs so that sounded more fun! HAHA, its a good thing that almonds generally go on or in carbs, so its a win-win for me, just not my waist line. I had to do some really hard work prior to the shoot. Such as visit a very popular bakery in town and test run some products, work with the owner of said bakery as well,…
