High Five Friday

I’m not really too excited for this Friday just because that means my vacation is coming to an end. And really it hasn’t been too much of a vacation. Remember I’ve mentioned a few times that I had a nasty cold? Turns out it was a sinus infection. I found this out when I woke up Tuesday with a red eye that progressively got worse through the day. When it started draining gunk, I knew it was…

Monday I went for a run along the seacoast. It was an absolutely beautiful morning. Blue skies and sunshine that made the calm ocean waters sparkle like diamonds.

It was a good day. And a good run.

I even had a sign.

One of the things I like about running is that I get to see so much. I watch people, look at houses, notice the cars, motorcycles, the grass, trees.

As I was running along, pushing…

Find the Energy Benefits of Oats in Cheerios

Energy. We all want more of it, right?

Some people find energy in a cup of caffeine. It gives you a little boost but usually what follows is a major crash and you’re back to where you started.

I find energy with fresh air. Being outside gives…

Training Update: Baystate Marathon

26.2 Saucony | HappyFitMama.com

Happy Monday everyone!

Like I said on Friday, this Monday is especially marvelous (thanks for the link up, Katie!) since I’m off from work all week and I’ve got no one to answer to for the whole day. Can you tell I’m just a wee bit excited about that?

I realized over the weekend that in my previous marathon training, I’ve done a weekly training update. This time around I’ve just been giving you…

What’s for Dinner?

Black Bean Avocado Quinoa Bake  HappyFitMama.com

Hey guys!

Just popping in for my weekly meal planning post. Like I said last week, I really haven’t been in the mood for cooking. I’d rather enjoy the last days of summer (it pains me to even write that!) having fun than in the kitchen.

So here’s just a rough estimate of what’s for dinner this week.

Sunday: Grilled cod + veggies (we’ve got zucchini and tomatoes coming out of our ears!)

Monday: B…

High Five Friday

High Five Friday!

I am beyond happy to be bustin’ out my Friday dance moves today.

As of 3 p.m. I am off of work for one whole week. We don’t have any huge plans. What I’m most excited about? Having two full days ALLto myself. The kids will be at school and Ron will be at work. I can’t even remember the last time that happened. I have dreams of running (hopefully…but that’s another story)…

Bia Sport GPS Watch Review

Bia Sport GPS  Happyfitmama.com

This post is sponsored by Bia Sport. I was compensated for my time in exchange for an honest review of the watch. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by the nice people at Bia Sport about wear testing their new Bia Sport GPS Watch. I remembered when they were doing a kickstarter campaign back in 2012. It seemed like a cool watch with great features but I…

Running on Real Food

Like I mentioned on Friday, it’s hard to believe in one month, I’ll be running my first 24 hour relay with Team #islagiatt (It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time for those who don’t know what that means!).

A relay has been on my running bucket list for some time. I’m thrilled to be running from the mountains to the sea for Reach the Beach.

What better way to see the great state of New Hampshire…

Meal planning day!

It’s that time of the week to figure out – What’s for dinner?

Grilled Lime Chicken with Avocado Black Bean Salsa | HappyFitMama.com

It’s a beautiful weekend here and I’m dying to get outside, so this post is going to be short and sweet.

My desire to be in the kitchen cooking has been slacking lately. Summer is way too short to be inside. Easy does it has and will be my motto for the rest of the summer. BTW – I do not like how chilly it is in the…

High five Friday is here again!

5 from instagram 8814 happyfitmama.com1. First time playing mini golf with the kids. Remember the movie Happy Gilmore? It went a little something like that.

2. Rainy runs have become the new normal around here. I’m not liking how it’s feeling like fall already.

3. Meet Team #islagiatt (at least part of it)! I’m so excited to spend 24+ hours running Reach the Beachwith these crazy peeps. Nine women and…
