WIAW: The Meatball Shop

Happy WIAW! I've been trying to clean up my eating habits a bit, but it's hard because I'm always hungry! #marathontraininghunger !!!!

Breakfast – scrambled eggs with grated parmasean, an apple and an espresso

Lunch – raisin bran with skim milk, baby carrots and roasted red pepper hummus

Dinner – dinner at the meatball shop! I had a mini slider to start(chile relleno meatball with queso fresco and salsa verde) & chicken meatballs with spicy meat sauce over sautéed broccoli. The slider was phenomenal. It's a good thing it was a random special or I would go back every night!



WIAW: Oh! Taisho


 Happy WIAW! I haven’t done this is awhile so I definitely feel like it’s time. Here are my eats from yesterday:


Berries and an (unpictured) iced coffee


Salad with grilled chicken, cheddar cheese and thousand island dressing


All of the skewers from Oh! Taisho in the East Village. I tried a ton of different items – Tsukune(beef meatballs), Shishito(peppers), Aspara bacon(bacon wrapped asparagus), Hotate bacon(bacon wrapped scallops), Negi(scallions), and Ninniku(garlic). My favorites were easily the bacon wrapped asparagus and the shishito peppers. Can’t wait to go back and try more things!


A pink lady apple, some Cocoa & Coconut Barney Butter and some cheddar cheese

I Ran 6.5 Miles Today…

And now I feel like a hungry, hungry hippo! I've been insatiable all day. I don't even know what's going to happen when I start running longer distances.

I feel like there's a good chance I'm going to put on a few pounds while I'm marathon training.
Right now I'm packing and then I'm off to the Jersey Shore for the next five days. My goal is to actually stay active on vacation. I want to run twice, swim and play tennis….very different than my usual sit-on-the-beach-and-drink style.
The true essentials: sneakers, flip flops, swim suits and booze!

Happy Friday!
