Breakfast/ Exercise/ Fitness/ Lunch

Mad Rush

Hi bloggies!

Ahh I am a whole new person after sleeping 7 1/2 hours last night. I wish I could have slept 8 or 9, but 7 will have to do. Better than 1.5, right?! This morning I grabbed this Kashi bar + a juicy pear and was out the door—


I LOVE this bar. Chewy and filling bars make me a happy baker that doesn’t snack mindlessly on candied pecans 😉

Breakfast was amazing.


This combo was:

  • 1/2 cup oats cooked in water and a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 BIG scoop Naturally More pb
  • 1/4 cup Zoe’s Honey Almond Granola

Kept me fueled for the remainder of my morning and through my 11 am appointment to get the initial injection for my later afternoon bone scan. After the shot (ugh), I snacked on half a Pure bar that I had in my purse before I headed out for a run!


I did a very hot and steamy 3.2 miles in 29:45. It was a pretty good run despite the waves of heat that I felt like were just smacking me in the face while I ran. My little bro ran the first .75 mile with me and then turned around. 🙂 Afterwards, I downed a huge glass of coconut water and made lunch


Lunch was a delicious wrap!


This Rudi’s 7 grain + flax wrap contained a morningstar farms veggie burger with 3 big scoops Cedar’s hummus and a sprinkle of feta cheese. It was sooooooo yummy. Grapies on the side!

I’m in a mad rush to shower, get caught up on emails (ughh sorry I’m so slow yall!), work on the e-cookbook and get back to the hospital by 2:45 to have my scan done. Dinner is already in the oven so it’ll be ready when I come home. See you in a bit!

ps—What do yall think of my new Training sidebar??

Zesty helped me with it, obvi. 🙂 I have been getting a lot of emails lately regarding how I will go about training for the triathlon/half marathon so I thought if I laid it all out, week by week, it would help you guys get a better picture of what I am planning on doing!

    i noticed the side bar even before i scrolled down and read you note. pretty cool to see your workout plan. it always helps to schedule things, i know i wouldnt survive if i didnt schedule workouts into my day. that pure bar looks good. i’ve been on the hunt for them just to try them out and i cant seem to find any, although they might have it at the co-op, i guess ill just have to go for the second time ever(never been to the co-op until i started reading your blog) 🙂

    Love the training sidebar! I like seeing how other people plan out workouts. I use Google Calendar to log mine, but I sometimes don’t follow it, switch things around, etc. and then I forget to update it so I can’t look back and see what I’ve done!

    I don’t know how you survived on 1.5 hours of sleep, I would’ve died.

    Love the new side bar!

    Jenna, i must say, your food always looks so fresh and delish!! I’m so jealous!

    p.s. what kind of coconut water to you buy? I’ve seen a few different brands but want to know which one is ‘jenna-recommended’ — or is there even a difference?

    I like your training sidebar! I was actually just putting together something similar the other day. I tried to make a week/2 week schedule to post in my blog but it got kind of messy so I’m still trying to work on a nice layout for it. We’ll see. I like that you’ve got Bikram om the schedule, I looove Bikram! 🙂

    Hi Jenna! I noticed that Barney Butter is giving away free samples on their site, and thought you and your readers would like to know about the giveaway! When I signed up for my free sample, I had to answer a question about how I learned about Barney Butter and I told them your blog, since that’s where I first learned about it. Hopefully they give you a shout out (or extra free samples)! Can’t wait to try it.

    The Pure bar looks yummy! So does the wrap…I’ve made wraps from veggie burgers, but never with hummus and feta. Looks awesome!

    I love the training schedule on the side! Good luck with your bone scan, I hope everything turns out okay! Those oats look delicious, and I LOVE Kashi Roll Bars.. they’re so hard to eat because theyre so chewy but they take forever to finish which I like!

    Sleep is my weak spot. I tend to to avoid it as much as possible and then run around like crazy wondering why I’m so tired. It’s always my mother who has to point out that perhaps I’m falling asleep at the dinner table because I haven’t had more than 4 straight hours in the land of nod in the last week…Moms are so smart!

    That coconut water must have been delish after your run. Did you buy it at Whole Foods? I can’t seem to find any around me.

    Have a great day!

    With love,

    I’m glad someone else appreciates the Roll! bars as much as I do–especially in the oatmeal walnut flavor. My fave!

    I really like the new training sidebar. I love seeing what other people do for training. Even though it’s usually in your posts, it makes it so much easier to see it in one location. Great work!

    Hey Jenna! What kind of protein powder do you use? I’ve tried Kashi’s chocolate kind and it’s all chalky – yuk! Any good recommendations?
