My New Sporting Adventure

Hi gang! We made it to Friday! I could have sworn someone snuck in an extra day on me this week though;) But it was a good week, nonetheless.

Yesterday morning started off  and absolutely GLORIOUS early morning outdoor run! The sun was just rising as I headed out, so the sky was turning from black to blue. There wasn’t much traffic out yet, so all I smelled were the beautiful flowering trees the entire 4.5 run. I miss these.

Next was a glorious bowl of oats!IMG_6452 1/2 cup oats, 1 T. flax, 1 t. stevia, 1 banana, 1/2 c. almond milk, 1/2 c. water, golden raisins. Topped with peanut nutter and coconut butter.


My coconut butter overfloweth.

I headed to work, which was all right – nothing exciting to report about, which isn’t always bad:)

Broke for lunch and had some lunchtime leftovers!


The previous night’s sweet tater + beans + some meatless balls! I’m well aware that looks nasty, but it tastes fantastic!

Also munched on a Lara Bar on a way to train some clients directly after the desk job work. I had a couple extra clients, so dinner wasn’t until late, and I about ate my arm, but then decided on this:

A toasted Ezekiel tortilla with tomato sauce, goat cheese, baby bellas, spinach, and avocado.

Just lovely.


The bowl my dessert was in reflected how I feel about this new ugly, weird sounding snack…

Fantisimo day over all!

And before I head out…

My New Old Sport Adventure is…. 


If you guessed volleyball, you were right!

I’m joining a league and my first game is in a few weeks! I used to play volleyball up until my second year of college. Oh how I’ve missed it so…

Have a fantastic Friday, everyone!

  1. Looks like you still have great form. Wish we could attend some games. What position will you play, middle or outside? Have fun!

  2. Fun!! My husband and I play sand volleyball all the time! It is a great workout!!

  3. Weird. My boyfriend played volleyball yesterday and is so excited about it. He’s trying to get me to come next time but I just remember being HORRIBLE at it. I don’t want to be the worst one on the team!

  4. I am always so excited to find bloggers who started out small with running and then went full speed into 5ks and 10ks, and eventually longer. It gives me so much inspiration, because I’m just starting out. And I’ve never been particularly athletic. Thanks for the inspiration!
    Congrats on joining the volleyball league and happy Friday!

  5. Good luck with the volleyball! It looks really fun.

  6. That Ezekiel pizza looks fancy and delicious. I would never have known it was such a quick toss together and healthy meal. YUM!

    And that is so cool about the volleyball. I bet that will be a lot of fun.

  7. Oh and i can totally see you as an amzing VB player….for sure!

    Enjoy the weekend, Paige!

  8. Those oats look SO good! How do you toast your tortilla? Your healthy “pizza” sounds perfect!

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  10. How fun! Good for you for getting back into something active that you enjoy.
    Also, love the topping on your little pizza!

  11. Awww, vball sounds like a blast! You’re tall too, aren’t you? A born player! 😛 I need to find a sporting team to join, they always sound like so much fun. But first, I need to learn how to play sports.

  12. Volleyball? That’s so AWESOME! I tried out for the volleyball team in high school and ummmm…I was NOT good! Basketball was my sport!
