Easy Travel Snacks + Quest Chips GIVEAWAY!

Travel can be a challenge when it comes to food.

Or it can be a fun adventure!

I’m no stranger to packing up my meals and going.  I once flew with 21 meals!  This trip is a little different.  I’m in Las Vegas playing in a softball World Series.  That means long days on the field, not knowing when the next food opportunity will come.  We don’t have a fridge and I doubt my ability to keep food at a safe temp in the Vegas sun all day… snack time it is!

Packaged foods are happening.  That doesn’t have to be all bad!  I’m not snacking on the “typical” things.  Here are a few items I’ve packed up to withstand uncertain schedules, heat, and a lot of roughhousing.

Recovery, Workouts, and Sweet Potato Pie Waffles

Sometimes there’s no shame in staying in bed half the day.

Especially when the last couple of weeks have been chaos!

Last Monday I depicted pre-conference life.  This Monday is recovery life.  Marvelous recovery.  Recovery life started with sleep.  Since I couldn’t take pictures of that, we’ll pick up with the wakeful part of the weekend.

You are making too many sober decisions

Agreed.

Channeling Wonder Woman + WIAW

Wonder Woman is my favorite superhero.

If you know me, this is probably no surprise.

Mind over matter is a very real thing.  I find myself being able to “will” myself to do more than I should be able to both in and out of the gym.  It’s kind of fun to push yourself to do the (previously) impossible.  To me, this is Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman

My inner Wonder Woman is especially channeled on leg day.  20 reps with 6 plates on the leg press?  No problem.  Well, yes a problem… but not one I couldn’t handle.   My reward was going to the gym the next day and having a guy say (awkwardly) “Your legs have gotten bigger!  I mean… that’s a compliment… you know what I mean…”

Only in the weight room could you say that to a woman and get away with it.  HA!

New Site, Fun Food… and an Epic Fail

Welcome to the new Sprint 2 the Table!

Thank you guys for putting up with my outdated look for so long.  I am no web designer, so I finally decided to do the smart thing and enlist help.  I hope you like it, and that it makes it easier to navigate around here.  If you run into any bugs, please let me know.  There are always kinks to workout.  Kinky.

ALSO… I added a tab for training and nutrition.  I earned my certifications a few weeks back, but hadn’t had the time to really promote it.  With the new site in place, I’m ready to take it to the next level.  Wheeee!

This has nothing to do with anything except that I think it's hilarious.  Although... if Target had a bar... that would really be taking it to the next level.

Want it more than fear it

#MoveHappy 4: Fudgy Plantain Protein Muffins

I’m high on my #MoveHappy this week!

 

I’m in Colorado… what were you thinking?

This week I get to do my #MoveHappy challenge with Heather in Colorado!  In case you missed it, Heather and I are co-hosting a challenge to have FUN with fitness in July.  You can read the details here.  We have a lots of prizes and 5 chances to win some of our favorite fitness-related items.  Last week’s prize was announced on Heather’s blog, and this week I have the goods again!

First let’s talk about how awesome is is to be here for Heather’s 2nd bikini competition!  She decided to start competing almost a year ago this week when we were on vacation in Napa.  I told her if she did, I’d come to Colorado and do a competition with her… this time she’s competing in a different organization and I’m taking a year off, so I came to spectate.  Doesn’t she look great? 

We celebrated a great show with lot of tasty food at Session Kitchen.  The server was amazing – she even brought out a special dessert for Heather!  Chocolate Chip Blondie S’mores with streusel sucre and White Russian gelato.

#MoveHappy Week 2: Quest Bars & Nutrex

Long weekends make me happy.

We really should implement a 2-day work week, 5 day weekend policy.

This weekend was full of happy movement.  Atlanta is home to the world’s largest 10K, the Peachtree Roadrace.  It’s held every year on the 4th.  This is my 5th race; I’ve only missed one since 2008!  I haven’t been running much, but my goal was to finish in under an hour.  I rolled out of bed early Friday morning and took the train to the start line.

I debated going to the convention in town… but nah.
