Gigabody Online Workout Review + Giveaway

image

Disclaimer - Through my ambassadorship with Fit Approach/Sweatpink I was given 2 months free access to Gigabody in exchange for a review.  The opinions expressed in the following review are 100% my own. As most of you guys know, I've gone a little bit home-workout happy in the past couple of months, following the Philadelphia Marathon.  What you might not know?  I'm sort of a closeted home ...

5 Big Fears, Layering Up, Motivation vs Stubbornness

image

Some things are just too scary to let your mind even go there.  I'm not talking about BIG scary things, like tragedy level or anything, but rather all the rest.   You know you have these fears because when you're confronted with a tiny glimpse of one of them, the panic sets in, and you realize there is so much you take for granted that can go so terribly wrong. Thanks Amanda for the Thinking Out ... [ Read More ]

Pre-Race Food + Easy Paleo and Low FODMAP Meatloaf

image

Before a race or long run, I generally pay a bit more attention to what I'm eating, mainly to do whatever I can to avoid feeling sick during the run.  Anyone who's had stomach problems during a run or race knows it's an experience you don't want to repeat, ever, ever again.  In fact, in spite of significant IBS symptoms since childhood, it wasn't until IBS killed my running that I "hit rock ...

NYRR Fred Lebow Manhattan Half Recap

image

2 years ago, the NYRR Fred Lebow Manhattan Half was my first half marathon ever, so as cheesy as it sounds this race will always have a big place in the running section of my heart.  I signed up this year right before running the Philadelphia Marathon, predicting I'd need some running motivation post-marathon and right in the dead of winter. I love the timing of this race.  Late January is just ... [ Read More ]

Weekend Recap – Snow + Sleep + a Half Marathon

image

My full recap of the Fred Lebow Manhattan half marathon on Sunday will be up tomorrow!  I tend to get really wordy/detailed/annoying with my race recaps so it would not be right to try to squeeze it in to this post right now.  Why is it so tough to keep recaps succinct?  I often go into it, like, "it was fine" and then wind up with over 1000 words.   The recaps become just like the race once you ...

Running & Yoga + Really Hoping to Race

image

Yeah, I just said that I'm actually looking forward to my race on Sunday.  Sort of.  I think the only reason I really want to race now is because of the possibility of snow cancelling the whole thing or preventing me from getting to the race!  You don't know what you've got 'till it's gone right? I guess maybe I'll learn my lesson now about signing up for half marathons in NY at the end of ... [ Read More ]

Maple Chipotle Ketchup – Paleo & Low FODMAP

image

My post on Monday about my kids eating personalities got me thinking about ketchup.  I'm sorta like "meh" with ketchup.  I've never especially loved it, and certainly not the way I love my homemade mayo!  But, I was thinking about ketchup, and when I think about something like that it usually means a recipe will be coming along soon. And like with most of my recipes, it's a selfish one.  If  I'm ... [ Read More ]

Scoliosis, Oven Cleaning, Yoga, and What I’m Worth

image

This week has been filled with...a whole lot of the same stuff as always.  You know, business as usual.  Am I even allowed to say that on a blog?  I'm not taking it back.  Sometimes all the Paleo Running Momma does is, you know, run, eat paleo stuff and do mom activities.  I guess that was the point.  So never mind then, this is exactly what I'm supposed to blog about. Thanks Amanda for the ... [ Read More ]

Paleo For Kids – WIAW

image

Months back I did a WIAW Kids Edition to show you what my kids eat on a typical day.  Going with the theme of my Monday post about kid food personalities, today you'll see everything my daughter Diana - the oldest and the "paleo by choice" kid - ate this past Sunday. I would show you what the other two ate as well, except it's probably within your skill set at this point to pour dry cereal into a ... [ Read More ]

On Thin Ice – All That Glitters…

image

...May or may not be ice that is dangerous to run on, so proceed with caution.   You are now warned that I'm about to get into my over-thinking runner brain.  That would be somewhere in the anterior of the frontal lobe, most likely. I like to make connections between running and life, as you already know if you read my blog often.  The decision I made Monday morning was a total "me" decision ... [ Read More ]
