Spinach, Egg, and Cheese Muffins

Yesterday around lunch time, I had a fierce craving for a vegetable frittata. Since I was the only one home, I didn’t want to make an entire frittata just to have a couple pieces of it. Hm, I wish I had a pie pan that was about 1/5 the size of a regular one, I […]

Kind of Fabulous

I’m pretty sure I haven’t had as lazy of a Saturday as I did yesterday in months!! And you know what? It was kind of fabulous. Somehow the day zoomed by, and when I looked up, it was 4:00. Sure, I took a spin class, and trained a couple clients in the morning, but other […]

Nana Thai Cuisine

You can “like” the Running Around Normal page by clicking the “like” button at the bottom of this post Thanks guys — OK. Now on to the good stuff. It’s […]

The Curious Case of the Missing iPod

Alternate post title: I Really Need to Clean Out My Car First thing’s first – I just ran a 7 mile run (my long run of the week, per my half marathon training plan) with minimal hip pain!!!!!! I’m back, baby! Granted, the run was inside on a treadmill due to yet another Midwest snowfall […]

Cheating on Food Day

Today’s a food day here at the BIC. A food day is a day of celebration for birthdays or new coworkers, where everyone brings in a dish. I cheated, only because I was busy training clients until 8:00, followed by stuffing my face with a mug brownie. I “made” trail mix chex:   Directions: Open […]

A Mug Brownie Kind of Day

Yesterday was the kind of day where I probably should have turned off my alarm and not gotten out of bed. It was the kind of day where I really wasn’t in the mood to, well…anything. The kind of day where everything was an annoyance. Heck, even I annoyed myself! It was a mug brownie […]

Sweet and Savory Sweet Potato Wedges

Last night around dinner time, I had a taste for something both sweet and salty. It wasn’t that I was being indecisive; I just wanted both! After concluding that a certain time of the month is mostly likely just around the corner, I then concluded from my uninspiring pantry that a sweet potato would be […]

She’s a Bad Banana

Signs that it’s time to buy some fresh bananas: 1. When you can slather a banana onto your peanut butter toast, instead of slicing it on top:     Past. Its. Prime. What’s your favorite use for rotting bananas? Besides baking banana bread, I like to add them to oatmeal. When they get this brown, they’re […]

Unexpected To-Do’s

Oh, what a day! It’s inevitable that when we have a to-do list that’s a mile long that there’s going to be some unexpected problems, right? Something about Murphy’s Law? Well in between spin class and my noon client, I realized I desperately needed an oil change and a little rotation of the tires, and […]

Impromptu Day Trip

Other possible titles for this post: Three of My Favorite Places, Fon-Do I Ever, and You’re Gonna Need to Roll Me Out In the middle of my run before training yesterday morning, I got a voicemail that one of my clients had cancelled. Shane and I took that as a sign that we should, indeed, […]
