Done-L means Running and Food

Guess who is finally done with 1L? Oh yes, this girl.

And with the end of 1L comes free time that I never knew I had!

So here I am, blogging again, running again, baking again.

It's a good life.

After last fall's half-mary #2, I ran a bit over the rest of the fall/winter (including an epic faceplant on thanksgiving. i rock) + here and there in winter semester. Most of my exercise time was on the arc trainer or bike reading law supplements (yes, FML). 

But with finals, and the tinges of an injury brewing in March caused me to lay off the running. + quite a few binge drinking episodes to celebrate the end of exams, and then the end of write-on, I was way out of shape.

So running is working its way back in. it's been pretty consistent -- at least 3 times a week for the past 2 weeks. Go go go Lauren.

The heat is definitely a killer, but I'm working with it. 

Some days are better than others. like 55* mornings, followed by 10 minutes of turbofire stretching and some crepes for bfast (see bellow)

I've also been cooking like a fiend. homemade meals for bfast, lunch, dinner most nights. 

some of my accomplishments:

crepes a la the fitnessista  definitely one of my favorite bfast recipes. lemon + sugar.

and of course, nutella. 

carb free pizza. yum yum. no pepperonis, + spinach, and olives.

other favorite bfast eats:

new obsession. love chobani

banana + dark chocolate dreams
With regard to baking, 2 weeks ago  I got together with some awesome girlies and made joy the baker's raspberry almond cupcakes with chocolate ganache.

again, fabulous.

so in all honesty, i've had this post in the queue since over a week and half ago.

so despite gathering new blogging material, i have yet to post this one, so i'll do that and then drop the big news. although if you follow me on instragram or twitter, you probably already know.
