Writer's Block & "Ask Me"!

Afternoon, lovelies! Work is WERKing me! No joke. My brain hasn't been very focused today. I decided to get my run in, hoping I could clear my head. Before my run, I had a bowl of grapes (forgot to take a pic!) and 1/3 of an Amazing Grass bar.

Chocolate flavor? Woohoo! Love this flavor and a great pre-run snack.

So even though I had this faboosh view, I called it quits after 2.5 miles. I'm just glad I got some mileage in.

So pretty. It's so nice to see things getting green. But spring also means the return of this for me. Darn seasonal allergies!

My lunch was WEAK! I actually brought soup but the thought of eating soup after a hot run, PASS. So I had my sides and snack for lunch instead.

Carrots, hummus and pumpkin yogurt with a banana. To make pumpkin yogurt, you'll need:
  • 1/4 cup non-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
Mix and voila! I have used brown sugar or topped with granola for sweetness but I passed on that today in favor of the ripe banana. It was the perfect amount of sweet. I know this won't last and I'll be hungry very soon. I may turn orange from all the carrots and pumpkin in my diet recently!

I have a confession. I am totally suffering from writer's block! Do you have those moments? I even do it when I write work and personal emails.

So my question to you is, what would you like to see more of on RunRettaRun? More recipes? More training? The reason I started my bloggie was to inspire other mamas out there to get their fitness on, even though it's tough to balance work/life. After all, a happy mommy means a happy family. So you let me know what you'd like to see!

I also got inspired by Melissa's Q & A sesh on her blog. So I'm opening the floor up to questions about me, The Lover, the job, the boys, my weight loss, my "aha" moment . . . feel free to ask and I shall answer. Post the question in my comments section or email me at RunRettaRun AT yahoo DOT com.

I'm looking forward to hearing feedback. Thanks, peeps!!


  1. i do get writers block sometimes. to fix it, i run more. that's all i got.

  2. I'd love to see more recipes! After trying out the acorn squash with sausage and cous cous AND the Green Monster, I'm curious to know what other tricks you have up your sleeve!

    Question: exactly how much weight do you think you've lost?

  3. i want to know your AHA moment! and what plans you have after the marathon. and when we're getting a tattoo. :)
