Frog Fuel, is a playfully named, protein-packed energy gel supplement. Now, if the words “energy gel supplement” sound gimmicky to you, just relax and delete from your head any negative connotations that those words might conjure. You know me. You know I don’t do supplements unless they’re totally natural and are going to be beneficial to the body. Frog Fuel is both of those things. … Read More
Where as last month didn’t involve much running at all for me, this hot, humid, and sweaty month definitely did. And even though the summer weather has been pretty brutal, I enjoyed every single second of it. When the sun is hot and the air is thick, conditions that make a less than ideal environment for running, I especially need a good playlist of motivating songs that can carry me through a few miles that I might otherwise have given up on due to getting overly hot and sweaty.
These are the twelves songs that helped keep me motivated through this extra-sweaty first month of summer running. Click the image or the link below to listen and subscribe on Spotify. … Read More
Two weeks ago I started Favorite Food Finds Friday on Hungry Runner. I wanted to make it a weekly event where I share my favorite grocery store finds of the week with you all.
Unfortunately, I totally forgot to share my Favorite Food Finds last week. (Bad blogger!) So, in my second attempt to make a weekly habit out of this, I’ve made a Favorite Food Finds Friday vlog instead. As long as I get my act together (which I totally plan on doing), you can expect a new Food Finds Friday video every week. Yay!
So, press play and check out what my favorite foods of the week are! … Read More
I shop at Trader Joes almost exclusively. I do my weekly food shopping trip, get everything that I need to prepare my meals and snacks for the week, and I’m done. It’s convenient and affordable, and even though shopping at Trader Joe’s in Manhattan sometimes feels more like trying not to suffocate in a mosh pit, I’ve shopped there long enough to know my way around the store just as well as a runner knows their favorite route. And I also know the best non-peak food shopping hours, so these days I can get my grocery shopping done in 25 minutes or less. I’m a Trader Joe’s Pro.
But after moving to Manhattan, since I just chose to blindly believe that Trader Joe’s was the best, most affordable, and most convenient grocery store for me, I started to wonder, what about Whole Foods? While living on Long Island I had shopped there occasionally and found it to be pricier than stores like ShopRite or Stop n’ Shop. Plus, everyone in New York calls it “Whole Paycheck.” So I just unquestioningly assumed that I couldn’t afford to do my weekly food shopping there. Except, I know that I shouldn’t ever unquestioningly assume anything. I was mostly basing my decision off of a stereotype and I wanted to put those judgements to the test and find out if my assumptions were true. So last week when it was time for me to restock my kitchen, I headed for Whole Foods on a quest to answer the question of all questions, is Whole Foods more expensive than Trader Joe’s? … Read More

As a self-proclaimed social media and blogging addict, it’s really quite baffling how hard it was for me to begin writing this post. How does social media influence health and fitness? I asked myself that same question over and over again, each time feeling like I just couldn’t come up with a satisfying answer because personally, it has a very profound influence on my day-to-day routine and therefore, my health and fitness too. … Read More
