First of all, thank you for your congrats on my post yesterday! I still can’t believe I ran a half marathon distance. I seriously need to take someone with me next week to vouch for it and tell me I’m not crazy and that it actually happened!

I just keep thinking back to a moment this past August. I was at a BBQ and my sister-in-law’s friend was training for a half marathon. She said she had run 10 miles that morning. My jaw literally dropped to the ground. I was in complete awe! She didn’t seem like a “runner,” she seemed like a totally average girl, just like me. To hear that she had run 10 miles that morning and was having a blast that night without looking like she was going to die really amazed me. I kept thinking: “how is she not completely exhausted! I can’t believe she ran a WHOLE TEN MILES.” I knew then and there that I wanted to do it. I wanted to prove to myself that I could become a distance runner, even though I always believed I just wasn’t a “runner.”

For anyone reading who wants to try distance running but just doesn’t think they have it in them, look at me. I had run no more than 4 miles in my life before I graduated college, and even then 4 miles happened probably 3 times in my life. When I moved to Chicago I decided I would run a 10K and after a couple months of training, I did it! But then I let running fall to the wayside when winter came around. I kept up short treadmill runs, but that was it. I got back into running this past August, and since then I’ve been slowly but surely building my mileage. I’m not saying you’ll be running a half in 2 months, it’s take me 7 months to get where I am now! You just have to work at it, slow and steady!


Trust me, you don’t have to be a “runner” or any kind of athlete to accomplish what you dream of. Just work at it, learn from set backs, and keep pulling yourself back up. You really can do anything.


Well now that I’ve hopefully inspired you to go for your goals, I have something much more delicious to share! Remember how I got the Magic Bullet and I asked for suggestions on what to use with it? Well, a couple of you suggested putting cottage cheese in there and whipping it. For those of you who suggested it, God bless you.

I have come up with a million different mixtures of cottage cheese, from the classic of just adding some stevia and vanilla extract, to anything from berries, chocolate, bananas, butternut squash and more!

This one included a small handful of blueberries, stevia and vanilla:

Here’s the one with a couple spoonfuls of butternut squash (and yes, I realize it looks like melted cheese…):


This one I had as part of my post-run snack after my 13.1 mile run! It included cottage cheese, some flax milk, stevia, cinnamon and a scoop of vanilla protein powder. It had a great texture!

My favorite, however, I never got a picture of! I had a pretty ripe banana, so I put half of it in with the cottage cheese and stevia, and it was FANTASTIC! I’m going to buy a banana and let it get old just so I can re-create that one! The sweetness of the banana with the cottage cheese was just perfect!

When I first heard of this idea, I thought it would be just the same as adding any of these mix-ins to yogurt. Oh, no no no. I was mistaken. The cottage cheese actually “whips” and has a great texture, and the taste is just so different from yogurt! Haha it’s hard to describe, you’ll have to try it out yourselves!


Have you ever tried whipping cottage cheese? What’s your favorite flavor combo?

What is a goal you have set for yourself? (any type, not just physical!)
