Hey everyone! It’s THURSDAY!!!! I’m so excited for the weekend, although I feel like this week FLEW by! Which it did since I didn’t have class Monday due to Rosh Hashana! (don’t be jealous, we have to make it up later…). I also had Molly for 6 days so she kept me very busy! I realized this morning that I not only miss Molly, but I miss having someone ELSE to focus on other than me! It was nice to feel needed, haha too bad Neville requires little attention…

1. I am officially excited for fall. It’s slowly but surely cooling off here in Chicago and I am feeling the fall excitement! It’s by far my favorite season, so now I’m ready to embrace it!


2. Speaking of Fall, I can’t wait until it’s actually cold enough to wear boots. I am dying to pull them out! (and yes, this is exactly what I look like…)

3. Since I was so tired this week I decided to run my 8 miles after class on Wednesday and sleep in. Apparently to Molly “sleep in” means jump on Katie at 6am and insist that she gets plenty of attention.

4. One of the many reasons I love bloggers and healthy blog readers:


5. I tried this kind of KIND bar on Wednesday. It was pretty good and you could really taste the honey. I’d buy it again.


6. I’m already looking at the 10 day weather to see the weather for the marathon (won’t be able to see marathon day for a while). So far I have determined… nothing.


7. I’m slowly but surely updating my recipe page and adding pretty pictures and Pin It! buttons so that you all can pin any recipes and save them easily.

8. It’s officially “taper time” for the marathon, which means our mileage cuts back significantly. I was so excited for this but when I looked at my plan for this week I thought: SERIOUSLY??! Last week’s mid-week mileage was 5, 10, 5. This week is 5, 8, 4. I was hoping for a bigger break than that… Buuuuut, I busted out my 8 miles last night despite some serious wind conditions and it made me feel so strong and ready for the marathon!

Molly and I enjoyed a walk and a green smoothie after.

9. My Marathon information packet came in the mail last night! Haha honestly it was a bit much. Normally I’m type-A and need to plan everything. I started looking at the packet and thought: “I just want to RUN!” It was a bit much.

10. My late class (from 6-7:50pm) is cancelled tonight!!! Yay!!!! This means I’ll get home around 6:30 instead of 8:45!!!


Go check out my adorable oatmeal recipe photos!


Are you a Type-A planner or do you like to just jump in and go?


Do you like having someone/thing else to take care of, or just focusing on you?
