Guess what? I am a FitFluential Ambassador. What exactly is that? Well – from their website:
What this means for me, my blog and you is that we will be connected to an awesome network of fit-tastic people and have even more good healthy living information to share! I am really excited about this opportunity!

The good people at FitFluentail also suggested that I start a Twitter account. If you have twitter and would like to follow me my name is @runningwithrach. Original, right? I feel extremely behind the times trying to figure out this Twitter business, but I am determined to learn the etiquette and lingo. If you have any useful information and would like to help a sister out, I would be more than grateful.
I intended on running 6 miles yesterday, but it turns out that Asheville is in the mountains. Which means that it is hilly. Like really hilly. I spent the first mile running down a hill and the next mile running back up it. After that I was lucky to get one more mile in before my shins were screaming at me. Today = 6 miles if it kills me.
I worked from Sarah and Ryan’s house. They have an extremely well stocked fridge and pantry. I was like a kid in a candy store. As I had planned on running 6 miles, I had a little pre-run snack of a waffle and a sliced banana.
After my run I made a Greek yogurt parfait.
For lunch I grabbed a random leftover container from their fridge and added some broccoli.
It tasted even better from their beautiful deck.
For dinner we ate at a very interesting restaurant called The Lucky Otter. A nice toy shark marked our order.
I ordered a chicken satay burrito. It was fantastic.
Thought for the day
Daily Points (30) + Activity Points (6) – Eating Points (38) = -2
Weekly Points (49) – Mon (4) –Tues (4) –Wed (1)- Thurs (1) –Fri (2)= 37
Whole wheat when possible; 100 oz of water; Multivitamin; 2 servings of dairy;5 servings of fruits and veggies; 2 tsps of oil; limit sugar and alcohol ; lean protein. Not great, but better than yesterday.
