NYC Marathon Training Week 12 Recap

NYC Marathon Training Week 12 @paleorunmomma

I should always write my weekly recap posts right after a long run.  My personality is so much more pleasing during that short window - at least to me. Actually everything is more pleasing to me after a long run, which is why I do it.  Of all the legal highs, the runner's high has to be the best of the best. So, I just ran 20 miles and I'm feeling pretty awesome.  Okay wait, scrap that.  If I ... [ Read More ]

When Life Gets Busy & My Confirmation

Boston 2014 Turn Right

"When life gets busy" is turning out to be the theme of this week.  Just breathe, right?  No, just give me a minute.  At least that's what I've been saying to my kids or anyone else who happens to talk to me.  "Just give me a minute."  Sure, all I need is a minute and I'll be caught up and ready for game time.  That would be completely awesome if all I needed was a minute to get it all ...

WIAW – Run Paleo Repeat

What I ate - Run, Eat paleo, Repeat @paleorunmomma

Like I mentioned yesterday in our pumpkin chat, my meals have been even more repetitive than usual lately. The combination of a) marathon training and b) busy, jam packed days means I'm doing a lot of running followed by a lot of eating the same go-to foods that don't take much prep.  The ones I could cook in my sleep if I had to.  Not that I'm sleeping much lately (seems to be a pattern) but ...

NYC Marathon Training Week 11 Recap

NYC Marathon Training Recap Week 11 @paleorunmomma

Another week down and a few steps closer (or 47 miles but who's counting?  Not me!) to THE MARATHON! This week went a lot better than last, and I'm almost completely over the fact that I missed my half marathon tune up.  Everything happens for a reason?  Who knows, maybe I would've injured myself running that half.  Or maybe I was pushing limits and needed extra rest. Who knows. What I do know ... [ Read More ]

What My Kids Really Think About Paleo

My kids' thoughts on Paleo

I have a special interview for you today, and this one will not disappoint.  Since many of you loved their take on having a mom who runs, I decided for today's Thinking Out Loud, to find out exactly what my kids really think about Paleo. As you can see from the pictures above, I do not insist that they eat "paleo" 100% of the time.  I've come to the conclusion over the years that moderation is ... [ Read More ]

Paleo Meals On a Sick Day – Soothe and Repair

WIAW Soothe and repair the body after illness

I am not a person who can just "not eat" when sick, waiting to get better.  Even when I'm really sick, I don't completely lose my appetite.  Not only that, but as soon as the worst symptoms are over, I often find myself ravenous, probably an effort by my body to replenish depleted nutrients. I'm not sure if that's strange, but it can really pose a problem for me during the rare times when I'm ... [ Read More ]
