Snack Time

I wanted to share with you guys what my favorites snacks are, for the time being. I just bought some string cheese (colby jack). I tried to eat it like string cheese (when I was a kid) and it didn't work. So, I just took bites. It still tasted good, though.

And, I think I will always be into bananas and pb, but this time, i added a little chocolate to the mix. It was almost a banana split, minus the ice cream. I could eat this at every meal, for the rest of my life! I just have to keep telling myself that I have self control. I do, really.



These snacks really put a happy smile on my face. Especially after spending 5 hours in the gym over the last 24 hours.



This morning, I went to the gym for workout 1 of 2 today. I ran a nice and easy (and pain free) 6 miles. Once I finished, I worked on my legs. I found that if I don't cross train like a mad woman, I get injured. For the first 1/2 marathon, I had a knee injury, I corrected that with some cross training. The second 1/2, I had hip pain, once again, corrected with more cross training. And, this 1/2, I had/have heel pain, which I'm correcting with mostly stretching. All of this defiantly keeps me healthy and mostly injury-free.


What are your favorite snacks and a huge workout (beside chocolate milk)?

  1. Bananas and chocolate.... mmmm! I'm hungry now.

    My favorite snack at the moment (because it can change week to week) is Pop Secret Homestyle Popcorn. It's the only salty thing I eat and I cant get enough of it!

    As far as a huge work goes, for me it has to be my long runs.

  2. I have noticed that I feel a lot better now that I am swimming and cycling in addition to running. Glad you are staying injury free with your cross-training too!

    Snacks I love: apples & hardboiled eggs, cherry tomatoes, granola bars, grapes, fruit source bites, small tortillas with PB for a more hearty snack. Mmm, now I'm hungry!

  5. I love string cheese, but I know some kinds don't get as "stringy" as I remember when I was a kid! My favorite snack lately is popcorn dipped in hummus, its delicious!
