An Unexpected Run

I've lived in Texas my whole life, so I should have already come to terms with the fact that the weather has a mind of its own. Yet, I still find myself shocked when it's 80 degrees one day and 50 degrees the next. So, while I went to bed last night with the intention of getting up early to workout, I was so cold this morning when I woke up that the only thing I could think to do was make pancakes. Logical flow of thoughts, I know. So, I made the same pancakes that I made last Wednesday and though they tasted just as good as they did last week, they didn't look any better, meaning I still need to work on my pancake-flipping skills.

I also indulged in a whole other smorgasbord of things, which is what prompted my late morning workout. I dropped a roommate off at class and headed in the direction of Mt. Bonnell to complete, you guessed it, my Mt. Bonnell workout. The weather was seriously perfect, so though the ten rounds of stairs nearly killed me, the weather made it much more bearable.

I then drove over to Town Lake, planning on walking the three-mile loop, but at the last second I decided to run it. Like I said, the weather was beautiful and I hadn't run in a few days, so, why not? The wind was in full force , but I managed to complete the three-mile loop in about 26 minutes. Not too bad, and though I still have that annoying "cold weather run" feeling in my throat, it felt great!

Once I got home, I worked on a quick English assignment, showered, and whipped up a lunch that looked identical to last night's dinner. I'm definitely a creature of habit, but it tasted great, so I plan on spending the rest of this beautiful day doing homework, going to my first small group of the semester, and working on the debate that I'm participating in tomorrow. I know that I want to be a teacher, but I absolutely dread the thought of getting up and speaking in front of my peers. Plus, I'm arguing for something with which I don't necessarily agree. I'm "broadening my horizons" though, right?
You can actually see the cheese a little bit in this picture
I hope it's as beautiful where you are as it is here!

To-Do in 2013

At the beginning of the year, I was devising a list entitled "21 Things Before I'm 21," that would, obviously, be a list of 21 things that I wanted to accomplish before my 21st birthday, which is exactly one week away, by the way. One of the items on that list was running a half marathon, so I was forced to revise my list after the breaking of my toe. I was also having a hard time coming up with things that I wanted to do that I would be able to fit into my school schedule, so I changed up my list, making it a list of things that I want to do anytime in 2013. It doesn't matter when, just as long as I do them on or before December 31st, 2013.

The list will continue to grow throughout the year, but here is what I have for now:
  • Read Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
    • Remember how much I loved the movie? I just have to read the book that inspired it.
  • Run a half marathon
    • So far I've run a half in both 2011 and 2012, so it seems that I must continue that trend.
  • Camp at Enchanted Rock
    • Located not too far from Austin, this is a hot spot among outdoorsy Austinites that I have been wanting to visit for quite some time.
  • Complete a Triathlon
  • Go an entire day without spending money
    • I'm reading a book right now called One Good Deed a Day, which basically lays out 365 "good deeds" that can easily be done in a day. This is one of them, and I realize that even if I am not eating out, I still spend money on groceries, or gas, or random things that I don't even realize.
  • Take a vacation outside the state of Texas
    • There are a couple of options for achieving this goal, and I promise I will reveal them soon!
  • Take a picture here
    • I discovered this monument online probably two years ago and I still haven't managed to visit it. 2013 will be the year!
I know this isn't much, but I will keep adding to the list as the year goes on and I think of new things that I want to do.


Tonight's workout was nice and sweaty, and a bit new-to-me. Well, spinning isn't a new thing for me, but spinning here in Austin is. I typically shy away from new spin classes because I have my tried and true (aka Felipe's) that no other class seems to be able to match up to. However, if I am training for a triathlon, I need to fit some spinning classes into my workout routine. Tonight was the night, so I put in a couple hours of homework before hitting up the gym for a 5:45pm spin class. It was tough, but it was no Felipe's class, that's for sure. I wasn't counting down the minutes like I usually am in spin classes, and the music wasn't quite as motivating as I would have liked. I'm all about the fast, upbeat, pump you up music, and that is not what I had tonight. All that being said, it was still a good workout and I definitely plan on going back. 


Dinner was an old favorite, but with one added ingredient: dairy-free cheese. I made my dairy-free pizza, as I tend to do often, but some might argue that pizza requires one key ingredient: cheese, and being lactose intolerant, I often have to forgo the deliciousness that is cheese. It doesn't usually bother me, except for the fact that I cant' eat queso, but when I saw this dairy-free cheese at Wheatsville Co-op yesterday, I couldn't pass it up. I have found that it is easier and easier to "be dairy-free" these days because almost everything can be (and for the most part, is) made dairy-free.

I made it the exact same way I usually make my dairy-free pizza, I just added in the cheese this time, and I must say, it was delicious. I couldn't even tell that it was dairy-free. But then again, I also haven't had cheese in over two years, so it could just be that I don't remember the taste of real cheese. Either way, it was great! I also topped my pizza with turkey pepperoni, broccoli, mushrooms, zucchini, and squash. It was the perfect post-spin class dinner, for sure.

And now I'm off to work on some research for a debate I have coming up in my adolescent development class, which is turning out to be one of my more entertaining classes I've ever taken. Enjoy your Tuesday evening!

Question of the evening:
  • What's one thing on your 2013 bucket list?
  • Is there anything I should add to mine?

Fitness: A to Z

It's that time again - Survey Sunday!

Today's Survey Sunday comes to you in the form of another A to Z list, this time it's anything and everything to do with fitness and working out. I may list gadgets and accessories on here that I don't own, but that I would like to own one day, or just that I think are pretty cool. With a blog name like "fitness&froyo," I feel like I should be promoting fitness any chance I get. Enjoy!

A- Asics
I am about to retire them, but my trusty pink Asics have been with me for quite some time now. I love them for the support and stability they offer my knees - I tend to pronate when I run - and I would definitely purchase another pair. 

B- Bananas
Bananas are my go-to food the morning of a major race, and I am not alone in that decision. Bananas are proven to be safe pre-run fuel and the carbohydrates found in them provide energy for runners. Plus, I can eat them with peanut butter, and any excuse to eat peanut butter is a good one in my book.
C- Circuit Training
Though circuit training will not be the first thing that comes to my mind when I am thinking of what workout I want to do that day, circuit training is such a great workout. You can single out one part of your body, work your whole body, or get your heart pumping with some cardio.
D- Dumbbells
I have recently discovered the art and importance of strength training, so dumbbells and free weights have become some of my very good friends. There are a plethora of exercises you can do with them, and here are a few of my favorites. 

E- Exercise Ball
I used to love ab workouts, but they tend to be few and far between these days. I tend to think that I am working my core while doing other exercises, but the one ab exercise that I incorporate into my workout routine at least once a week is crunches on an exercise ball. I don't get bored and I guarantee you will feel the burn.
F- Fuelband
Though I don't own one, I am very fascinated by the Nike Fuelband. It tracks your all-day activity, which I love. I would love to track the days which I tend to be most active, and the days which I tend to be less active. If you use one, let me know how you like it!
G- Garmin Forerunner
I don't own a Garmin either, but I am dying to get one. I spotted a pink one at a store in Houston that is not too big and bulky, but it does exactly what I want it do: tracks my time and my distance. I always guess my distance based on time, but I'd love to know an exact distance, because something tells me I tend to overestimate how far I've run!
H- Headphones
If I don't have headphones, it probably won't be an enjoyable workout.
I- iPod
Same with an iPod. Lately, I've been using my iPhone, so forgetting it hasn't been much of an issue, but it is a must have for me on my runs. Sometimes I just need music to take my mind off of what I am doing!
J- Jump Rope
I thought I might have lost my zest for jumping rope after four years of Stratford Volleyball, where our coaches were very jump rope happy, but I incorporate the jump rope into my workout routines every so often. It is a great cardio workout, and I so often forget that. 
K- Kettlebell
I used this more when I lived at SRD, mainly because they had quite a few in their fitness center, but I have contemplated investing in one of my own more than once. It is such a versatile piece of equipment and it can tone your body fast. See if your gym has one next time you go.
L- Leggings
I usually don't wear leggings while I am working out, but I wear them just about every other time of day - during the "winter." I actually don't like regular pants that much, so leggings, a t-shirt, and tennis shoes are my go-to lounging (and not-lounging) outfit. 
M- Mizunos
Mizunos are my tried and true. They were my first official pair of running shoes and I loved both the look and the feel. I am about to start breaking in my newest pair of Mizunos and I can't wait until they are molded to my feet.

N- Nuts and Nut Butter
I eat one of the two (or both) every single day. If I'm not careful, I can easily eat 1,000 calories worth of nuts (and I probably have). I will pop a few of them in before a workout and be on my merry way. The same goes for peanut butter. I can pair it with almost anything and call it a successful meal or snack.
My favorite snack
O- Oatmeal Bars
I think y'all know by now that I have an obsession with my oatmeal bars. Which is funny because I don't care for regular oatmeal at all. I think it's the texture. But I almost always have my oatmeal bars on hand because they are easy to eat both pre- and post-workout. Plus, I can make them a little bit different each time and I know they will still be good.

P- Pool
Though I am just recently getting back into it, swimming is one of my favorite workouts of all time. It works your entire body, and swimming laps just relaxes me in a way that many other workouts don't. There is also nothing I love more than swimming laps outside under the summer sun. Nothing.

Q- "Q" was really tripping me up this time around, and I still haven't thought of one, so if you have a good fitness move or gadget that starts with a Q, please enlighten me!
R- Running
I used to hate running, but it is easily my favorite form of exercise these days. I love the thrill and challenge that training for a race brings. I love that running can be done anywhere, with very little equipment, so there is really no excuse for not working out while you are on vacation. All you need are tennis shoes, headphones, and maybe a GPS if you are in a new city!
S- Spinning
I have such a love/hate relationship with spinning. I love it for the workout that it provides, and it is sort of fun, in a weird, twisted sort of way, but it is so hard. I leave every spinning class drenched in sweat, trying to figure out what the heck I just did. Felipe's Wednesday morning class will forever be my favorite, and if I am in Houston on a Wednesday, you can find me there at 9:00am.

T- Treadmill
Though I am currently in my running outside phase, I love discovering (and creating) new treadmill workouts. Sprinting is such a challenge for me, so while I sometimes curse myself while doing it, I always feel great afterward. 

U- Under Armour
While I do tend to gravitate more toward Nike products, I do have a few Under Armour products that I really like. Under Armour tops were my best friends while I was on my Wilderness trip.
V- Videos
Okay, so this one should probably be DVD's. but it's within the same category. I don't do them often, but there are so many great exercise videos out there - Jillian Michaels, P90X, Insanity, and even video games like the Wii and X-box Kinect. They are a great traveling or at-home workout tool. There's never an excuse for not working out!

Jillian Michaels is my go-to girl (Source)
W- Watch
I used to detest wearing watches, but now it will be hard to find me not wearing one. When I am running, I have to have my watch or else I'll think I've run five miles when it's really only been five minutes. Plus, I like to count down the minutes until Felipe's spinning class is over.
X- X-tra thick socks
Again, the "X" is tripping me up, but I was ready for this one. X-tra thick socks are essential for me to have on my long runs, or else I can likely say hello to a few new blisters making their way onto my feet. I bought a three-pack of sport socks at the Austin Marathon Expo two years ago and they are my favorites.
Y- Yoga Mat
I am not an avid yoga-goer, though I wish I was, but a yoga mat is still a necessity for me. I don't want to use a mat that numerous other people have sweat on, so my yoga mat stays in my car, just in case the occasion ever presents itself.
Z- Zumba
Admittedly, I've never taken a Zumba class. I took ballet for one year and evidently hated it, so that was the end of my dancing career. I think I am intimated by the thought that everyone else will know the steps, and I will be the one in the back looking like a lost puppy. I've never heard bad things about a Zumba class though, so maybe I should give it a shot one of these days soon!

I am probably going to remind you in every post from now until January 31st, but if you are wanting to sign up for the Pretty Muddy Run, be sure to do it by January 31st, because the price is going to go up on February 1st, 2013. Register NOW! You won't regret it! Be sure to use the discount code!

P.S. I can't end this post without a special birthday shout out, and this one goes out to my very best friend - my mom. I can't put into words how much you mean to me and how grateful I am for everything you do for me. Mostly, thank you for showing me what it means to put other people before yourself - you set a true example for me and I am so proud to be your daughter. Enjoy your special day and be sure to eat some Hungry's for me!

Do Not Worry

The theme of my Young Life retreat this weekend, and easily one of the most important things I needed to hear. Matthew 6:27 says, "Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" And that is so true! I spend so much time worrying instead of just doing what I need to do. So our retreat was great, but more on that later.

I left y'all hanging before my swim and my baking adventures. My team nominated me to provide the baked goods, so I decided to honor their wishes and try my hand at cake balls. Cake balls are a pretty recent trend, but I have never made them because they looked pretty intimidating. However, I already had the ingredients, so I decided to give it a try so that I wouldn't have to make a separate trip to the store. As it turns out, cake balls are pretty darn easy to make - just follow the instructions given to you and they will turn out great. I will warn you that they are a process, so be prepared to set aside some time to work on them. It also helped that I have this trusty storage plate, as it gave me a place to store them while the coating hardened. Pretty cute if I do say so myself. Cake balls tend to make a good appearance, so if you are looking for dessert ideas for your next party, I encourage you to think about cake balls.

I also made a plate of brownies that the boys managed to absolutely destroy, so I apologize for not having a picture of those. They were nothing too special, but evidently they were pretty tasty!

After the baking extravaganza, I biked on over to Gregory Gym for the first time this semester to partake in my first swim since the end of last semester. It was an absolutely beautiful day, so I was worried about my chances of being able to snag my own lane, but no worries, friends, I managed to hang onto my own lane for the entire 96 laps. I was surprised at how easy it was to get back into my groove, though my toe still isn't 100% yet, so I wasn't moving quite as gracefully as I would have liked, but that will come with time and consistency, I'm sure.

In typical Murchison Young Life fashion, we arrived late to the all-area gathering that took place before headed out to Bastrop to spend the night at a family's ranch, which was absolutely precious, by the way.

It was a cute ranch house, but this particular sign was not one of my favorites!
Naturally, we made a stop at Buc-ee's to pick up some beaver nuggets and additional snacks. I don't know if this breaks my one month plan, but I did purchase a bag of peppered turkey strips because they are just so good and they allow me to add some variety to my snack options. I probably shouldn't have purchased them, but, I probably won't get to make that stop until I go home for spring break, so I figured it was a pretty necessary purchase.

Just acting up in the middle of Buc-ees
We got to the ranch around 10:00pm and proceeded to explore a bit, build a fire, tell scary stories, and just give our vision for this semester. I also love spending time with my team, but I always leave retreats feeling pretty exhausted. I went to bed around 2:00 in the morning, and woke up around 6:45 with the hopes of watching the sun rise. Unfortunately, it was pretty foggy, but I was able to do some reading and at least snap a few good pictures.


We headed back to Austin for some more all-area business stuff, and then dispersed. I came home and immediately retreated to my room with the hopes of getting some homework done. I was pretty tired, though, so I opened Netflix and proceeded to watch four episodes of Pretty Little Liars. My productivity level truly astounds me sometimes. But, around 5:00 I headed over to Mueller Park and ran for 57 minutes, which I would assume to be about six-and-a-half miles. It was absolutely beautiful outside, and the weather felt perfect. I know that many people hate this warm winter we are having, but if we had days like today all the time, I think people would come to appreciate it. Who wants to be bundled up in a bunch of layers, anyway?

See y'all tomorrow for another round of Survey Sunday!

Springs Back Triathlon

I don't have class on Fridays, yet I woke up at 6:43am this morning. I ate one of my banana-oatmeal-almond butter bars and drove over to Mt. Bonnell for round two of my Mt. Bonnell stair workout. The weather was great, but my legs were seriously lacking in strength and energy this morning. That is probably due to the fact that I went to a Body Pump class last night - my first in a while. I wasn't sore upon waking up, but as soon as I started climbing the stairs, I felt it.

So while I planned to follow my stair workout with a short three-mile run around Town Lake, I headed home to work on some homework instead, with the plan to get in a run or a swim later before my Young Life all-area retreat. I'm waiting for the sun to come out so I can work on my tan at the same time. I don't hate the fact that I can work on my tan in January.

Springs Back Triathlon

Yesterday, while scrolling through my Instagram feed, I saw a picture with the captian "triathlon training starts now." She attends UT with me, so I thought there might be a triathlon coming up in Austin. Even better, it's over Spring Break in Fulshear, which is right outside of Houston. I haven't attempted a triathlon since my run-in with the half-ironman in October of 2010. I love the idea of a triathlon, I was just not quite ready for that distance. So, I signed up for the sprint portion, because I don't know if I will be ready enough for the Olympic distance by March 10th, but I am excited for a new fitness challenge. Springs Back Triathlon, here I come!

Before 70.3
After - I'm not sure how authentic that smile was!
Hence, the need for a swim. I realized I haven't step foot in a pool since early December, so my swimming skills are going to be a little rusty. My plan is to try to swim laps at least twice, possibly three times a week. I absolutely love swimming, and doing it on a consistent basis is such good exercise. Swimming and cycling will have to be worked into my exercise routine, and I am excited to get started.

Now I am off to do some baking for our retreat this weekend, as per the request of my teammates. Happy Friday!

P.S. If you want to sign up for the Pretty Muddy Run in Dallas - which you should - be sure to sign up by JANUARY 31st and use this discount code: girltime (all one word). This is the cheapest it will ever be, so be sure to take advantage of it!

Black Swan Yoga

Six hours of class, and a minor panic attack about what I am going to do with the rest of my life calls for some hot, sweaty yoga. You have probably figured out by now that I am not a frequenter of yoga, but every once and a while I appreciate the stretch and relaxation it provides. That was exactly what I needed last night, so I made my way over to Black Swan and joined the 10:30 Sweaty Yoga class.

I usually leave the class asking myself why I just subjected myself to that, because I'm not very flexible and the poses are difficult for me, but I actually loved the class last night. I was sweating the entire time, but I could actually do the moves that were asked of me. I felt like I was getting the good stretch that my body was asking for. I did modify a few of the positions so as to not put a lot of pressure on my newly-heeled toe, but for the most part, I really enjoyed myself and I know I say this a lot, but I do hope to make yoga a part of my regular exercise routine. I'll try for once every two weeks for now, and then see how that goes!


This morning will be dedicated to the homework that I did not do while I was researching different job options during my quick stint of thinking that I don't actually want to become a teacher. I do, but thinking about next year really intimidates me. But I realize that no one knows exactly what they want to do, and how are we supposed to know? I'm staying on the teacher path, because that's what I've wanted to do since I was in the third grade, but I never want to limit my options. Just your regular Tuesday afternoon thoughts.

That being said, breakfast today was a (somewhat) new one. This recipe sort of spins off the 2-ingredient pancakes, but this recipe caught my eye while I was scrolling through my Instagram feed, mainly because it called for egg whites and I just opened my new carton of them so I need as many recipes as possible that call for egg whites. And be sure to check out The Slender Student - she has some great recipes and workout ideas!

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 3 tbsp egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Handful of carob chips
1. Put the stove on medium-low heat and spray your non-stick pan with PAM cooking spray, or some alternative
2. Mash your banana and mix in the egg whites, baking powder, and cinnamon
3. Spoon your pancakes onto the pan, sprinkling the carob chips on top of the batter
4. Let the pancakes cook for 1-2 minutes before flipping
5. Enjoy!

The next item on my to-do list is to learn how to flip pancakes so that they look pretty
I would love to play around with this recipe more and try other add-ins, such as chopped walnuts or pecans, blueberries, or maybe even peanut butter.

And because I knew these pancakes wouldn't have as much holding power as I would like, I warmed up two of my egg white vegetable bars, and ate those along with a handful of grapes. A satisfying breakfast that should fuel me through the rest of the morning.

Happy hump day!

Perfect Day

Happy Martin Luther King Day, everyone! I hope it has been spent doing something that makes you feel free. My day certainly started off on the right foot as Sarah and I woke up and spontaneously decided to go watch the sun rise. We drove to Mueller Park, my new favorite place, evidently, and captured an absolutely beautiful sight. The sun rise kicked off what has been another beautiful day here in Austin, and you will hear no complaints from me about the warmer winter weather.

Once we arrived back home, I enjoyed one of my favorite breakfasts: yogurt mixed with walnuts and raisins. It fueled me for a day of.. reading. And not for school, but for pleasure. For once, I am not just caught up with all of my school work, but I am actually a little bit ahead. Let's see how long I can keep this up! Anyway, I started a new book called Still Alice by Lisa Genova and I absolutely loved it. I couldn't put it down and though it was extremely sad, I cannot wait to dive into another one of her books.

So, after a morning full of reading, I decided to take advantage of the fact that not only is it my favorite weather outside, but that my toe was feeling much, much better. I headed over to Mueller Park for the second time today and got in a five-mile run through the park and the surrounding neighborhood. It felt so good, and I am hoping that I even managed to get a little color in my skin during my run.

After my run, I sat down by the pond and finished Still Alice before heading back home and indulging in my favorite snack - a honeycrisp apple with peanut butter. I could probably eat this three times a day and not get tired of it. I am now making some edits to my first paper of the semester and contemplating what outdoorsy thing I can get in before a conference call from the founder of Pretty Muddy Women's Runs, the run for which I am going to be a blog ambassador in Dallas. The fact that I am participating in a conference call tonight really makes me feel like I am getting old. Wish me luck - I am not sure how these things go!

Mt. Bonnell Workout + Egg White Vegetable Bars

Today was an absolutely beautiful day in Austin, Texas. I knew it from the moment I left my house to go to church this morning, and though I was cooped up a lot of the day doing homework and such, I managed to get out of the house to complete a new workout.

I wanted to run, but since I ran yesterday and my toe isn't completely healed, I still decided to take my workout outside so that I could enjoy the sunshine, get in a killer workout, and spend some time at one of my very favorite places in the world - Mt. Bonnell. It is the highest point in Austin and you get a beautiful view of the skyline, as well as a picture perfect view of Lake Austin. I wasn't alone in my idea to go there, because people were constantly coming up and down while I was there.
The beginning of the climb
I have made many a visits to Mt. Bonnell, and believe it or not, it makes for a good workout spot, too. There are exactly 106 steps to the top of Mt. Bonnell, so just imagine running up that many big slabs of rock ten times. It was tough, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself, especially because there was another woman there who was walking up and down the steps and we were able to encourage one another the entire way. It also didn't hurt that after my workout I got to enjoy a beautiful view. Views like this make it all worth it. I am definitely going to try and make this a regular part of my exercise routine - a workout with a view, you just can't beat it!

After Mt. Bonnell I knew that I wanted to do something else, but I still wasn't feeling like taking my workout to the gym. The weather was just too perfect. I drove on over to Town Lake and walked the three-mile loop, while also capturing some beautiful pictures. I wouldn't mind staying in Austin for the rest of my life. Days like today are my favorite and I hope there are many more coming our way this semester.

Egg White Vegetable Bars

I mentioned a few posts ago about my first-time experience with making my own scrambled egg whites. Well, I made them again for breakfast yesterday and while they were good, I didn't know if I was going to want them again before they went bad. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I don't like to be tied down to one thing. So, I perused the Internet for a healthy and delicious recipe that uses egg whites. The end result? My egg white vegetable bars.

  • 1 carton of liquid egg whites
  • Diced vegetables - I used pico de gallo and diced zucchini and squash
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit
2. Spray PAM cooking spray in each individual hole so that the bars don't stick to the pan
3. Put your diced vegetables at the bottom of the pan
This pan is the greatest - it makes for perfectly proportioned baked goods
4. Pour egg whites over the vegetables - I filled each hole about halfway, but I would probably do a bit more next time - I was just running out of egg whites!
5. Place in oven and cook for 25-30 minutes
6. You probably won't eat them all at once, so place them in a tupperware container that will go in the fridge. When you want to eat one (or two), just heat it up in the microwave for 10-15 seconds

And it's as easy as that. I had two last night with my dinner and I was hooked. Perfect for using up the last of my liquid egg whites so that they don't go to waste.

Enjoy your Sunday, and the fact that you don't have work or school tomorrow! Thanks, MLK!
