Ego Benefits of Weight Loss

Although I am not down a TON of weight, I am at a weight that was my post-high school adult happy weight - before I met the ex BF a few years ago and started drinking...

I told the current BF when I hit this said weight LOOK OUT! I'll be more confident and flirty and I know that I am the shiznit...

I AM at THAT weight now.

We went out to dinner Friday night and I had a man (not the BF) hold the door open for me on the way in. I had another random stranger man (not the BF) hold the door open for me on the way out.
A thought hit me at that time is that men must be doing that now because I am getting skinny. It's happened a few other times this week that I paid no mind to. The BFs remark was that I might not be far off on that thought.

Sunday, I set off on a slow and sloggy walk/trot. I had no time to worry about. I just wanted a huge calorie burn and wanted to get something around 12 miles. I was running by feel and I was feeling good. 2 rest days in a row, followed by an easy…

Kiss Me Organics Organic Dandelion Root Tea - With Hibiscus & Cinnamon Review

This post is sponsored by Kiss Me Organics and no other compensation was given.

I love Dandelion. They are not really a weed, but they have so many health benefits. The BF started eating them a few years ago. And he picked the first one this last week for me to eat. He has even gotten some of his guy friends to start picking them and eating them regularly. Serious! I am thankful for this tea because I don't have to eat them out of the yard, unless I want to. They are full of nothing but health. This tea tastes way better then a flower out in the yard!

Healthified 5 Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found a recipe in March's Martha Stewart Living that I had to make.
It was fairly healthy looking and I had an unopened bag of sugar free chocolate chips that needed to be used!
I have tried these cookies a few different ways. I am not a very good cookie maker. I am one of those people who leave them in too little or too long. Cookies are very hard for me. But I have made this recipe so many times since I got this magazine, I am gaining cookie confidence! I've tried it with egg whites and cashew butter, Truvia and molasses because I ran out of brown sugar, with applesauce and one egg white, and this last time had to be one of the best versions that I have made.

1 Cup Almond Butter (I used Maranatha)
1  Cup Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chips (they have the same amount of carbs as the sugar-free but without all the fake sugar crap)
1/4 Cup Truvia baking blend mixed with a TBSP or 2 of molasses for brown sugar
2 large eggs (I also think the 3 TBSP egg white and 1/4C applesauc…

Newest Running Skirt Making

I made another running skirt for Saturdays St. Patty's Day race in Boise!

The fabric isn't what I really wanted, but it was green, shiny, and at $0.50 a yard!

I wanted it to have the ruffles all around the skirt, but i forgot how to do that, so I actually hand gathered the ruffles on the butt as a last minute panic. 

Things are a little uneven and for some reason, I always make these a little too small. I know what my measurements are but I still get it a little snug. lol

 I'm leaving the bottom edge of the skirt as it is, even though it should be cut it off.

I think it will work good enough for the race on Saturday! 

What are you wearing for your St. Patty's Day race?

Pro-Oat Pancakes - Clean Eats!

I have been trying my hardest to eat clean. I did well in January, gave myself some slack a couple of times in February because of Valentine's Day and the BF's birthday. But I am back on the clean eats wagon this March.

A photo posted by runinboise (@runinboise) on Mar 4, 2015 at 9:26am PST I just found the Walden Farms product line. It is sugar free, carb free, and calorie free. I started out with a salad dressing, then added the chocolate and marshmallow dips, and jelly's. This has changed my clean eating life and my noms have been delightful to eat!

I have been trying different recipes that I have finding online for protein this and that. I really get tired of egg whites and spinach for brekky every freaking morning.

I made Pro-Oat Pancakes. These are really, really good! This is a take on EatPrayWeights recipe that she posted. They look and taste like normal pancakes but full of health!
