Nutrition Love and then some.

Well today is a very exciting day. You might ask me,” Aly, Why is this such an exciting day?” Ohhh don’t worry I am about to tell you! I made an appointment with a nutritionist. I am very excited to have everything looked at, as far as my diet goes and get some tips and a food plan developed. This does not mean that I am going to A. Completely change my diet for the next few days to make it look better. or B. Fall completely off the healthy eating wagon and eat as much food as I possibly can. I do have these slight worries about going out to eat with friends this weekend and how I am going to battle it. I just need to stand my ground and  be healthy and happy the whole time. I am going to let myself have a few drinks but not in overabundance. Most of all I am going to focus on trying to stay in my calorie goal. This has been a challenge for me lately, and I am not seeing much progress on my weight loss plan since I have been slacking. But I think this appointment is just the thing I need to kick my butt into shape, as far as eating right goes.

Another exciting thing about today…. The Giants are kicking Ass! I am a new giants fan and they are doing me proud this season hehe. (Thanks Andrew) I work right next to the stadium and the whole office has been in an uproar, we even had a hot dog lunch party to celebrate. Let me tell you that the hot dogs were having their own party in my stomach and it did not go over too well hehe.

Halloween is just around the  corner and Jason and I are trying to figure out what to be! We have a few parties to go to so this should be interesting. Well this is my update and I plan to use this blog to talk more about my nutrition needs and my  triathlon challenges! Wish me luck on this journey of life!

Blog Fun Question:

What are you going to be for Halloween?

80 miles in 2 days? On a BIKE!!!

That is right people I am biking  from San Francisco Daly City, to Pigeon Point! It is going to be an awesome ride with some great  friends. Jason is even going to meet us down there and get the camping set up 🙂 I have been having a rough week so I need this little break. Why do I feel kinda spacey? I am taking an airborne and not letting myself get sick! Tonight is a resting night before the big ride!

Do you have anything fun planned this weekend?

Let the balancing act begin.

So as I mentioned before things are  getting pretty intense for me. I have been pretty busy with work and getting back into a regular workout schedule. I also have been not documenting my food in pictures lately, it is very hard to find time to put the pictures up when I am super tired most of the time. I will keep adding pictures when I can find time and when training hits I will talk a lot about training for my 2nd Triathlon.

First things first!

As much as I want to say that I don’t think this behavior is obsessive I can not say that I am not somewhat obsessed with fitness and food. Fashion comes in a very close third. There has been much talk about food and healthy living blogs, and if they are healthy for readers/writers. There was an article about it in Marie Claire, if you are interested check it out here. I recently became an avid blog reader of these blogs, they inspired me to start my own blog to help me be accountable and check in at least weekly. I can not decide if this article is stating more facts than skewed ideas personally. But I can say that I feel better when I write it down, I am able to slightly get away from it. I think everyone is battling their own demons and if writing/reading blogs about other people battling the same demons  can be helpful. This is not to say that it cannot also be harmful. As the days go on, and the food blogs continue ,I have decided to not let the pictures of food overtake me. I will still write down what I have eaten in my own food journal but not obsess about putting it on here. If I happen to have a great meal, and I really want to take pictures and show everyone I will. Lets all realize why we are here, to truly enjoy life in any way possible.

Triathlon Love!

Today I am going to a Team in Training Info meeting to help recruit people for the Lavaman Triathlon that I am mentoring for! I am very excited! This morning I was talking to Jason(my love) and I was asking him of this is something I should be doing. I am dedicating a lot of my time to TNT, and It is not free. But, after we discussed it, I came to a conclusion. I am doing this for love. I am doing this because it makes me happy to help people and to workout. I love meeting new people and I love being involved. Maybe I won’t have as much free time. But hey, I thrive on this kind of stuff 😉


Fashion Freakout!

I was finally able to make it to the mall a week ago and I got some cute sweaters and a few tanks. I still feel like my closet needs some serious updating! I am trying not to freakout but I really want to shop. I have been saving up some money for it and I think at this next pay period I will really have some pictures to show you guys of all my fashion finds! Let me just say I am already juiced about being able to have some new clothes.

The end

Well this is what is happening now, I am going to blog maybe once a day about interesting things in food, fashion or fitness. I am not going to let it slip by just because I don’t have a new pic to show. Lets just call it more of an article with occasion pictures.I hope you will keep reading my journey.

This could take a while….

The Haps

I started my new position at work which is awesome so far. I love that I am so busy the day flies by. I am finding it harder and harder to blog when I get home about the food of the day. I am hoping to get into a rhythm and I can add photos easily and figure out how this all works. Thank you to all my readers, I know I don’t have too many but it is great to have you guys!

The last few days!

I made some pretty kick ass spaghetti squash Thursday night for dinner. I also made turkey meatballs.

Friday saturday and Sunday were pretty much food blurs, I finally went shopping on Friday! I got some cute cardigans and tanks to get me through a few weeks 😉 I will post pics of me in these outfits soon hopefully. I also went to a circus themed bachlorette party on saturday and it was hilarous! In between all the fun, I am having a hard time deciding if I can try  to blog every day like I wanted to, or if it makes sense to just recap the best of the week or so. I will have to get back to you guys on that. Right now I am knitting a blanket for my nephew, and that takes up a lot of my extra time. I also don’t have a lot of access to my photos at work and lately when I get home all I want to do is relax. I am working on a meal plan this week for my dinners since we are going grocery shopping tonight after I either  get a run in or go to the gym. I am a busy little bee over here and I hope to figure out a balance!
