dude, this time change must be kicking my butt. i am usually the person that rolls my eyes when i hear someone say that–i typically think the time change does nothing to how tired or awake i am.. wrong. it is 7:52 PM and i am more than ready for bed. totally beat.

although some of my lethargy could be due to the fact that it is monday and i have to be to work at 7 AM on monday. or perhaps it’s because i did what is probably the hardest GPP workout i have done to date. well, for me.. IT WAS FLIPPING ROUGH.

suck. i almost simultaneously puked and passed out. but i didn’t.. and managed to get this done in 24:37. i also did my fastest half mile (800m) to date: 2:59! weeee.

anyway, i am tired, which means this is gonna be a short and sweet post. mmmkay?

so, i meant to post about november’s national food holidays at the beginning of the month, but somehow it all of a sudden was the fifth. sneaky november!


  • national georgia pecan month
  • national good nutrition month

additionally, november has a couple national WEEKS:
  • first week = national fig week
  • second week = national split pea soup week
each individual DAY has a food (or sometimes even two!) to celebrate. check it out:

to get in the national food holiday spirit, i thought i would make a few suggestions for the upcoming days!
nachos day – november 6th: popchips nachos deluxe.
vanilla cupcake day – november 10th: jessica’s one bowl vanilla cupcakes for two. perfect sized recipe for me and marshall!
chicken soup for the soul day – november 12th: creamy (but healthy!) chicken noodle soup.
fast food day – november 16th: skip the fast food and make your own KFC at home.
gingerbread day – november 21st: holly’s pumpkin gingerbread oats.. yum!
cake day – november 26th: joy the baker’s cinnamon sugar apple skillet cake. cake in a skillet?!?
french toast day – november 28th: maple cinnamon french toast.
 i love a good reason to celebrate… with food :)
