yum. run. !!!

five not four.


i dont speak french.

how are things my gruff billygoat friends?

so after i left you sunday i had the most DIVINE dessert.
but i didnt take a picture because it looked so nasty. haha.

anyways. i mashed up a frozen banana. some soymilk. the
other half of my erinbaker breakfast cookie. and LOTS of
peanutbutter. it was totally unreal. i ate lots of other stuff too.


yesterday morning i woke up and had to rush off to take care of some businessssss so i grabbed breakfast and off i went.

mmm. oatmeal raisin cookies for breakfast? yes please.

between a couple of classes i jolted off to the arc to get my four mile run in [tapering and such]. unfortunately i was pressed for time so i had to sprint the four miles [subthirtyminutes] and so i think i defeated the purpose of tapering?

yeah. im that sweaty girl in class. gross.

at least i had time to shower before work?

packed lunch for sure. i feel like this picture makes my salad look very small and my fruit look very big. either way it was all very good.

and well..i work at a cupcake bar. and we just started our new spring flavors yesterday. aka there was a lot of nibbling going on. the things i do for my customers right?

i may have also made myself a vanilla latte for my trek home. yum.
please note that i am wearing gloves. also note that i ran in shorts and a tank top on saturday.

dinner was a classic. but first..
i munched on a ton of grapes. i shouldnt buy grapes because i could easily eat the whole bag in like three opens of the refrigerator..if that makes any sense. [i wish i could invite you all into my head. things make so much more sense in there(here?).]

say it yesterdaywasyourbirthdaygirl! plus a mishmosh of veggies and black bean. and BBQ SAUCE.

i have a big ass exam on thursday so i tried to pretend to study for a bit but uh..

chocolate [thats not a whole bar..] kettle corn. zoes granola. LOTS of salt and cinnamon. munchcrunchlove.
interpret this as you will. [but lets just say im now down to four jars of peanut/nutbutter..or so i thought (foreshadowing much?).]

i probably ate more too. because its me.


i added soymilk to my oats for the first time ever this morning.
holy bagoly majoly. so good.
i tried to leave a wee gap in the toppings [which were fone. dried cranberries. and recalled nut of sorts.] so you could see how creamy the banana soymilk combo made them. no dice.

eventually i headed off to do some light crosstraining. just thirty on the arctrainer. i took it supah easy and just enjoyed my ‘what not to wear’. oh clinton kelly..you will be mine. oh yes. you will be mine. and by mine i just mean well shop together and talk smack about other people. swoon.

working out vigorously [!?] requires much refueling.
a salad of sorts. bbqsauce makes my world go round. so do: carrots. peppers. kashi lovebites. turkey. and colorful bowls of fruit..since my salad was sort of dichromatic. [not a word?]


[at this point im speechless..ill let the pictures do the talking.]

chocolate times two. peanutbutter times at least six.

words cannot describe my friends. ah. and the jar count is back up to five! [well..four and a half at this point. oops. MUST RATION!]

heather. you are too good to me. !!!

the only thing that tore me away from that jar was class. bummer.

another win for team gnu. better than the banana id say but still no peanut butter.

my stomach has been on and off again wonky for the past couple of days so dinner is a little..awkward? i dont know man. it was just what sounded good. and i enjoyed it so that really all that matters.

these chips are from trader joes and are my loooove. in the past couple of nights ive eaten over half the bag. [MUST RATION.] i definitely went back for more chips and cottage. nom.

now i for real am going to study. seriously guys. really.

i gotta know..crunchy or creamy?

I usually love creamy but I bought that TJ’s PB and I’ve converting to crunchy!

Comment by Shelby

Heather sent PB?! Shouldn’t it be AB?! How sweet!

And that dessert you described at the front sounds a-ma-zing. I wish you would’ve posted a picture!

I love all the color in your foods!

Comment by Em


Comment by Lara (Thinspired)

Ahhh TJS!! They rock the PB πŸ™‚ So creamy and delicious!

I love your salads! Very colorful! That’s sweet you work at a cupcake bakery!

Comment by ksgoodeats

Crunchy. Because it’s basically crunchy and creamy put together. Best of both.

I totally get impatient when my training calendar says “4 miles @ 10:30” or whatever. I get so bored going that slow. So I ditch it and go hardcore – we’ll see if I regret it when I actually run the 13ish miles. lol.

Comment by Michelle Hisae

ok im officially back from my west coast vacay/hiatus from blogging and ready to re-invest myself in our relationship. i dont know how i was without your blog for so long…you are pretty much the epitome of entertaining reading. sometimes i even learn things! like how to down a jar of PB in 3 seconds flat (oh wait i already mastered that one long ago)
…hmm, im sure ill remember something eventually.
btdubs, HOW did you only just discover the deliciousness that silk adds to cereal/oats. HEAVEN!

Comment by elise

The chocolate, kettle corn, granola, salt and cinnamon combination sounds awesome! And dunking chocolate into pb – it CANNOT get better than than.

Comment by Lauren

You work at a cupcake bar?! That’s so rad. I love cupcakes :]

creamy but i do love crunchy too. it’s a toss up!

Comment by dailydulcie

Crunchy for sure!

So glad you got your peanut butter all in one piece Erin. Loved your “thank you” and thanks for the sweet shout-out.

I’m jealous of all your jars. I’m down to 1 1/2, and I glared at my husband as he attacked the Trader Joe’s jar with a spoon today at lunch. Must I hide everything?!? Yes, I think so. πŸ™‚

Popcorn PLUS Zoe’s?!? I gotta try that.

Hope the tapering is a little more successful over the next few days. πŸ™‚ Good luck rationing the chips and PB!

Comment by Heather Eats Almond Butter


i seriously love every word of your posts. popcorn/choc/zoe’s mmmm. and all of your salads.and your non-tapering. and your ugly dessert. i’d like to sample new flavors of seasonal cupcakes, too … can i come work with you?
