Anonymous asked: Hello! I was wondering if you have any good ideas for an afternoon snack because I have a serious sweet tooth. I am trying to cut out refined sugar (I genuinely think I'm addicted) and hoping that help with my skin (22 with acne = maddening) and life. In the afternoon I usually crave sweets and then binge on them and it ruins my day health-wise and kills any chance of an appetite for dinner. Any suggestions? Thanks for your (hopeful) help!

U mmmm I love sweets too, like almost more than I love cheese, which is a lot. I love love love fruit, and some people say that fruit is too high in sugar and it’s bad for you, but frankly some people are stupid. Grapes, and watermelon are splendid and it’s almost apple season so they’ll be cheap, plentiful, and delish. If fruit isn’t your thang, allow yourself some candy as snack. Chocolate isn’t the end of the world, and as long you have some self control (which with candy , is not always the easiest) you can have a little and feel satisfied. My favorite, peanut m&ms, chocolate NOM and peanuts = protein to keep you full. It’s like the perfect combination of calories and carbs and the small bag only has 150 calories, and frankly you can’t beat that! Best of luck anon!!

50k (that’s 31 ish miles for my fellow Americans) at Rock Cut State Park today. It was incredibly beautiful and ridiculously hilly.

We BOTH fell during the race (Shell: 2 Me:1) but given the amount of times we ALMOST fell, it was pretty good odds.

Oh and remember my bloody injured baby toe from last week? Stubbed it again and BROKE IT this time at mile 22.

Finished 8 hours 11 minutes.

Seriously though, soooo many hills.

Tough runs make tough runners. Never give up.

Filed under 50k rock cut state park illinois ultra marathon So pretty FALL in love with running broken toe owwwww shower time

Anonymous asked: Hold the phone! I thought you were going VEG this week?! What's with the egg? Try 15 minutes on boiling water and just stick em back in the fridge : )

Can vegetarians not eat eggs?? Lol I thought that was more like vegan. I’m sorry I’m new to this meat free lifestyle, but I did go a whole week with NO meat (or cheese or grains) so I’m very proud. On to week two….

AND thanks for the tip, I need all the help I can get!
