Enjoying Life one RUN at a Time

Our New Tradition: Anniversary Eats (WIAW 8/23) 


In case you missed it, yesterday Landon and I celebrated our one year (!!) anniversary! 


We had a great day (details below…) but I think Landon and I may have had too much fun yesterday-  it was a struggle to get out of bed this morning. 

But since we are here to talk about food, let’s get onto that…


(taken from my insragram) 

Yesterday, I kicked off our anniversary morning with a tiny little run – 1.3ish miles. It’s hard for me to stop at just 1.3 miles, but I know listening to my body is important!


After chugging a large amount of water, I made my typical breakfast: protein smoothie 


And a hot cup of coffee

I spent the rest of my morning blogging, cleaning the house, working on meal plans for the rest week, and grocery shopping!


My morning went by super fast and before I knew it, Landon came home for lunch. 

Lunch? Giant salad (with cheese on the side) 

And an apple with some grapes. I love it when fruit is on sale… 
After Landon left to finish up a couple more hours of work, I finished my house work, spent time sending emails, working on the blog, and I made another batch of these bad boys.


Naturally, I made sure they were edible 😉 and enjoyed a two protein bites with my second cup of coffee for the day.  

Once Landon got back home, (yeah!) we left for a super relaxed date. 


I’m so glad that we both are relaxed and go-with-the-flow type of people, because we ended up having to eat Chipotle in the car… 

We had important places to be. 
I managed to eat half of my bowl before I calling it quits. Chipolte is quite filling!

We saw Ben-Hur and we were both quite pleased, it was intense, but in a good sort of way! 


Landon and I topped of one year anniversary celebration by splitting a large strawberry shake!

Fun story? On the day after our wedding (one year ago today actually!!), Landon and I went out for dinner and split a huge strawberry shake (like so huge they served it in a goblet!) Last night, we decided to keep the tradition alive and split another strawberry shake. 


This time, served in a large, frosted mug. 


New traditions are the best. The shake was deliciously filling…thank goodness we split it. The shake was great, but the company was even better. Man, I love this guy. 

Shortly after we got home, we exchanged cards and crashed in bed (we were both exhausted!) I blame the sugar…

I’m off for now, if you need me, you’ll find me bouncing on my exercise ball. Come baby come!
