Six Dog Walks & Some Food.

Hey Everyone!

I hope you’re all doing well. I’m writing from thousands and thousands of feet up in the air! I’m on my way to San Francisco for a fun press trip with Stitch Fix I cannot wait to explore the beautiful city and spend some time with the Stitch Fix team. Make sure to follow my trip on Instagram, Snapchat (@taralynnmcnitt), Twitter and Facebook!14495337_1136381376408437_5244151263574985356_nJust to warn you *this blogpost is filled with more photos of my dog than any other post!
 
I made sure to wake up super early this morning so I could walk Grumples before I started getting ready. I’m not going to see him until Sunday because Kyle and I are heading to Tennessee on Saturday.
Morning Walk
I have fallen in love with our mornings together and our walks are therapeutic to me. They put me in a good mood all day. Dog BathWe ended up doing almost four miles. It was still icky outside from the thunderstorms last night, so we went straight for the dog wash once we got back. He was one happy pup!
English Muffin With <a href=
I was also a muddy mess, so I showered off and made a light breakfast. I am on a new kick now (I know…not again) but I love having a whole grain English muffin with Melt Organic Rich and Creamy Butter Spread, honey and cinnamon! It’s so tasty and perfect for the season. I usually have it with Greek yogurt or hard boiled eggs for protein. I used to eat cinnamon sugar toast every morning as a kid and this reminds me of it, just a bit healthier! 
I spent all of last week blogging about my weekend trip in Charleston, so now it’s time to catch you guys up on what I’ve been up to the past couple of days!

MONDAY:
I was so excited to see Grumples when I got back from Charleston. I missed our walks and snuggles. I don’t care how crazy you guys think I am…I love my dog so much. I think being away from him all weekend and knowing I’d be away from him all week made me more attached to him.

I woke up Monday morning, had breakfast and darted out the door to go for our walk.

Breakfast: 12 ounces plain nonfat Greek yogurt, honey, hemp seeds, chia seeds, 1 serving protein powder. I love using the CVS protein powder packets. 
We went 3.2 miles and it started to get hot out real quick. We didn’t leave early enough.

I needed to get in a run before it got too hot, so I did 7.82 miles on the old abandoned golf course. It was beautiful, but a pretty slow paced run. Sometimes I can’t speed up and that’s ok! My miles averaged 9:54 time.

I worked the rest of the day and then made dinner before Dancing With The Stars came on!I had spring mix lettuce blend with balsamic, goat cheese, smoked salmon and pecans, grilled chicken, and steamed broccoli with parmesan and garlic.img_6359
I had a crazy sweet tooth that night, so I made a mini s’mores with a granola bar. It had marshmallow fluff, dark chocolate and a honey & oats granola bar. It was incredibly delicious! Sometimes the random fixes are the best!

TUESDAY:
Becca came over at 6:00am to walk with me! We had coffee first and then headed out with Grumples. 
We ALMOST hit four miles!
Dog Walk
I had more coffee and a Greek yogurt + protein mix when we were done.

I can’t stop with the photos!

I made a goat cheese omelet for lunch. It had 4 egg whites + 1 yolk, 1/ cup tomato basil goat cheese and a side of zesty kale chips. 
The obsession is real…

Afternoon Smoothie: almond milk, strawberries, banana, raspberries, protein powder, blueberries and ice! (Rug Details)
Grumples loves going for rides out in the country so he can watch the horses and cows. He gets so excited and it’s the cutest thing. I had it on my snapchat the other day. The horses are only out during certain hours of the day, usually after six pm.

 
 
My best friend <3

WEDNESDAY:
I made another one of those delicious goat cheese omelets for breakfast with a side of jalapeño pita chips and supremely spicy hummus! 
We hit 3.29 miles! I can’t wait for it to get colder so we can hit five miles.

Derpy face…but it was a proud one! 6 1/2 miles ran 🙂 The weather is becoming so much more tolerable for runs.

Kyle and I took Grumples to PetCo Wednesday night to pick up some new toys and food. 
We also ran into Chipotle on the way home…

I always get the salad bowl with half chicken, half steak, corn salsa, mild salsa, brown rice, black beans, fajita vegetables, more lettuce and guacamole. Chipotle has the best salad dressing. If I lived closer, I’d probably eat it everyday. I think I’m going to do a Chipotle style meal prep when I get back. My bowl is always the biggest one:)
 
THURSDAY:
We hit four miles!

And then he quit on me..

Breakfast: 12 ounces plain non fat Greek yogurt, 1 serving vanilla protein powder, strawberries, chia seeds and honey.
 
Coffee <3

Becca came over on Thursday night to work. Her office shut down because of the events happening in Charlotte. I made us eggs, ground turkey and caesar salads! It was trying to use up all of my meal prepped food before the weekend. 
I made us pumpkin spiced lattes for dessert. This had a little bit of pumpkin puree, vanilla, nutmeg, stevia, cinnamon, apple pie spice, espresso and skim milk. 
FRIDAY
4.2 miles.

My dad came over to visit Friday. He helped me put a couple shelves together for the office space. Fridays are always my power clean days, so I spend about four hours doing deep cleans.

I had a delicious afternoon pick-me-up when I was done. It was a chocolate mocha Bolthouse protein drink with whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles!

Kyle came over Friday night to hang out while I worked on a couple blogs. We ended up watching Caesar Millan (so obsessed with his show) for hours. We had a lazy dinner thanks to Harris Teeter. We picked up rotisserie chicken, potato wedges and veggie fries.

SATURDAY:
Kyle walked with Grumples and I Saturday morning! I loved having him come along. We did the whole four miles!

For breakfast I had one of those delicious cinnamon honey English Muffins, a date and coffee!
 
Becca and I stopped at Amelies for coffee before heading out to shoot some photos in my new clothes from Stitch Fix. I’ll be sharing all of those photos on the blog soon. 
I stopped at CVS to grab some lens cleaner for the camera and then came across the angel of fall…PUMPKIN SPICED MIXED NUTS!!!!
AND THEY ARE AS TASTY AS THEY SOUND!!!
img_6609 img_6722
Sneak peek of my Stitch Fix box!After we finished the shoot, I headed out for a light run and then had a quick bite to eat before getting ready for the night.

I had Greek yogurt with protein powder, honey, and pumpkin granola. This granola has Omega-3s from flaxseed, crunchy pumpkin seeds, and a hint of cinnamon! It’s so good!
 why so serious
Kyle surprised me with tickets to go see Dirty Dancing the Musical. It’s one of my favorite movies 🙂I couldn’t believe how great this musical was. It was just the right amount of cheesy, but so close to the actual film. The characters, their costumes, the voices…everything! It was so spot on. The casting was incredible. They were phenomenal dancers, singers, and they should bring this show to broadway. I definitely recommend going to this show if you can! It’s SO worth it. SUNDAY:
I headed to the grocery store Sunday morning to pick up some coffee and I almost bought the pumpkin spiced English muffins! Have any of you tried them yet?
 
My favorite moments. 
I went to the gym with Kyle on Sunday and decided do a light jog and stretch while he did weights. I had Buff Bake Birthday Cake Almond Spread with a honey crisp apple after my workout. Its a weird combo, but it works!We headed out to run errands the rest of the day and then decided on Chipotle AGAIN for dinner. No shame in the Chipotle game.  
It was pouring on Monday and it really felt like fall. Grumples and I did eventually get our walk in later in the afternoon. We only did two miles and then I ran two miles. Chipotle leftovers! <3

My week was literally so calm and low-key that I barely had anything interesting to blog about, but something is better than nothing! I know my blog from San Francisco will be much more entertaining!

Questions for you!

  1. Have you been to San Francisco Before?
  2. If you could as the team at Stitch Fix anything, what would it be?
  3. Will you be participating in the October Fit Challenge? (coming soon)

    When you say you had protein powder along with yogurt, do you mix the powder into the yogurt to sweeten/flavor it?

      Hi Frankie!

      Charlotte is wonderful. Will you be going to school here?

      It’s about 80-99 from May-September 65-80 October-December 40-60 December-March

      But it is always changing! Last year it was 75 on christmas! We may get snow one day and 65 the next!

    I used to live in NC and I hated how muggy and hot the summers are, even early in the morning! I have a husky and she can’t make it very far on walks when we go back to visit, so she’s on the same page as Grumples! Also, my brother used to live in Charlotte and we would go to Amelie’s every time we visited him 🙂 It’s an awesome place!

    I have totally tried the pumpkin English muffins,and they are delicious.
    Yes, I have been amazing tourists area, so much fun.
    I don’t really know what they are but I’m guessing clothing so I would have them make me really cute hipster jacket, jeans and amazing boots if that’s what they do.
    I will try. (Pumpkin Spice nuts look delicious.) also Becca has to go to Sanfrancisco when you aren’t so busy and you can be a tourist. Lol.

    Grumples is looking fit and healthy! It seems the extra exercise is doing him well:) Love your blog! Really motivating, I also share your coffee addiction. How has cutting back been working out for you? I’m down to coffee about 3 times a week now and only 1 cup!

    Hi Taralynn! I have been reading your blog for years and you are so beautiful and inspirational, so thank you for that. I have been following your running lately, and it has changed SO much since you first started blogging! I love to run, but I will go a couple months running every day and building up my endurance slowly to where I am running about 5-6 miles. Then I take a 2-3 week break and am back to square one where it is hard for me to run even 2 miles (if I can even get motivated to start up again that soon!) Has this happened to you, and do you have any suggestions for me?

    Hi Taralynn!

    Have a great time in San Francisco! I haven’t been there before but it looks like an amazing place!

    I’d never heard of Stitch Fix before your post so I checked it out. I didn’t even know a service like that existed. I’ve seen sites for shoes but never clothes before. You should post some of the pieces you’ve been sent! Let us get an idea of what it’s like!

    I’m excited for an October Fit Challenge! I think it would be awesome!

    Have a great time in San Francisco! Mr. Grumples is living the life! How did you come up with that name?

      Thanks so much. It’s great and I can’t wait to come back.

      You’ve never heard of Stitch Fix?! No way! I’ll definitely talk all about it in an upcoming post.

      I’ll be posting all the pieces for sure.

      I’m so ready for a fit challenge!

      I came up with his name by the sounds he would make as a puppy! 🙂

    Hi Taralynn,

    I’ve been following your blog for years now, but this is my first time leaving a comment! Just wanted to let you know that you are a huge inspiration to me for how I want to live my life, in all aspects. You seem like such a great person to be around 🙂

    If you don’t mind, where did you get the grey and white rug in the picture of you holding your smoothie? I’m moving into my own apartment in October and have been looking everywhere for a rug, and I absolutely love yours!

    Hi Tara!!

    I absolutely loved this post and related to the entire thing. I am equally as obsessed with my dog as you are with Grumples! I take a million pictures of my golden retriever, Luna, whether she is doing something cute or just sleeping and looking adorable. The obsession is definitely real. She loves going on walks and has actually lost a few lbs too from being a little overweight, so we definitely relate on that as well. Giving her green beans mixed with her meals and going for walks is working out great for her.

    I see that you eat a lot of ground turkey or ground chicken which has become a staple of mine as well. I’m not sure if you’ve done it, but I like to add a taco seasoning packet and use it for chicken tacos.. It gives it a great flavor and even tastes great for making taco salads! I also could eat chipotle every day although the whole E. Coli thing had me freaked out for awhile. I just had a friend who spent a week in the hospital and they think it stemmed back to his Chipotle order. I love it so much though and I could drink their salad dressing!

    I’m so happy to see that you were/are in San Francisco. This is the next place on my list to visit!! My husband and I got married last May and decided that at each anniversary we would go visit a new city we’ve never been to before. Our first anniversary we spent in Toronto, Canada and our next stop is San Francisco. My dad has traveled everywhere in the U.S. for work and always says SF is his favorite city of all time. I hope you are loving your trip. I’m sure you are super busy with activities but I can’t wait to hear all about it!!

    xo, Taylor

      Hi Taylor!

      Glad you understand the obsession and the need for 10000000 dog photos. I think dogs know how cute they are 😉 The green beans are great! I use them for treats.

      Yes. I love doing the taco seasoning on the ground chicken and turkey! I like to wrap them up in lettuce wraps. YES THAT SALAD DRESSING IS AMAZING. I know the whole E.C. thing is scary, but I know you can get that from things in the grocery store too, so I take the risk for the chiptole! 🙂

      This place is wonderful and I SO want to come back so i can explore. It looks so fun! We’ve had a very busy schedule, so I didn’t get the chance to explore, but I WILL BE BACK!

      XO XO

    First of all, what are “Chipotle leftovers” Haha – I’ve never had such a thing before. I can crush a burrito bowl like nobodies business.

    1. Yeah. I did a cross country bike trip back in 2012 – and we ended just south of there, so I spent a few days exploring SF before heading out. Meh. City didn’t really do it for me.

    2. I’ve always been hesitant to buy from Stitch Fix because I feel like I have an awkward size ratio that doesn’t necessarily fit in pants right, that big booty life. But Rent the Runway let’s people take pictures & enter their size // shape so people can get a comparison. Would Stitch Fix consider something like that? I would hate to waste my styling fee because nothing fit me, or fit right.

    3. Hell yeah! Can’t wait to see what you come up with. 🙂

    • Taralynn McNitt

      Hi Jessie!

      This Chipotle bowl was a record high. I may or may not have doubled up on the meat just so I could do it for leftovers! 😉

      Cross country bike trip? Why am I not surprised? so cool.

      See…that is the thing I love about Stitch Fix, they are like size genies. They use all kind of data and analytics to get peoples sizes perfect. I really don’t know how they are so good at it!

      Thanks girl!! I’ll be working on it during the plane ride !

    I love that this post was full of Mr. Grumples! My dog moose is my favorite ‘person’ to hang out with, so I totally understand a post full of dog pictures. If I had to post a blog with pictures from my phone it would be 75% Moose pictures and the rest food… priorities right ha!

    I hope you have an awesome time in San Francisco! I went once while looking at colleges, and while I didn’t choose USF I did love the city and hope to go back! Hope you brought warm clothes… its always chilly there with the ocean breeze and fog! 🙂 Also a good excuse for lots of hot coffee 😉

    1. I love SF! My bestie went to college at SF State, so I visited her a few times. Zante’s is an Indian pizza place that is soooooo good! This Indian restaurant bought out an old pizza shop and decided to keep all the ovens and make Indian pizza. Try it if you can!
    2. I want to know more about the brands and how size exchanges work.
    3. I’ve been wanting to, but haven’t had the chance :/ Maybe now that my life has settled down I’ll be able to.

      Hi Jamie!

      That is the coolest. I’ve never heard of Indian pizza, but it sounds incredible. I love unique places. I’ll add it to my list of places to see when I get back here for a visit!

      I will definitely share all of that information! I learned SO MUCH yesterday and I can’t believe how much goes into each customers order.

      They’ll always be available on the internet, so anytime:)

    I will definitely be participating in this months challenges. I have been feeling so off lately, and groggy, not at all myself. Getting back on the workout game will help me out I think.

    I LOVE all of the Grumples posts! I miss having my animals around every day, so I love seeing other people’s animals 🙂

    Hi Taralynn!

    Sometimes those low-key weeks are the best!!! And I do completely understand your obsession with Grumples — critters always make the best friends. 🙂 My pup’s dying for a run right now, so I’m hoping my phone will finish charging soon….

    1) The few times I’ve visited San Francisco, I’ve really enjoyed it. I would never want to live or drive there (hehe…I’ve always been fortunate enough to be the passenger on those trips), but one of my favorite things to do is walk along the wharfs, looking at all the shops and ships. One of the docks we’ve visited a few times has some really neat old artifacts and ships that you can look at for free (unless you actually want to board a ship). Plus, seaside clam chowder bowls are basically the best. Also, I don’t know if it’s still there anymore but there used to be a sourdough shop near the wharf; the smells were incredible and you could watch them shaping the dough into loaves. And not just any loaves — they made all sorts of different ones, although the only one I distinctly remember is an alligator — that was pretty cool!

    2) I actually don’t know enough about Stitch Fix to ask any questions…but according to the sneak-peek photos you gave us, their clothes look really cute!

    3) YES!!!! At least, I hope to….October is going to be filled with a lot of traveling for Alexander and I, but I’m hoping to stay active during all of it. I’m excited to see what you have planned!

    Have a great time in San Francisco!

      I’m glad you understand the obsession. I just love him so much 🙂

      I 100% AGREE. I think it’s GORGEOUS HERE, but driving here is crazy! I’ll never complain about Charlotte every again lol Sounds like you had an amazing trip to San Francisco! I wish I had more time, but it makes me want to come back!

      I can’t wait to introduce you to STITCH FIX! 🙂 It’s a game changer.

      I have no doubt you’ll keep active during your travels. You have the natural itch to stay moving! You’re always inspiring me to get out and do something, especially with the pups!

    I’ve never been to San Francisco but I sure hope to go one day! I’d love to explore all of CA 🙂 Definitely want to join the Oct challenge. I’m going through a break up right now, and the will power for working out has come out very strong in me! So I am ready to challenge myself! Also. I love LOVE how much you love your pup and that you share that with others. I get a lot of grief (in jest of course) from my friends for how crazy I am about my cats, but honestly, I think it’s crazy to NOT love your pets as much as we do. They’re family 🙂 I so look forward to your posts. They’re always positive and brighten my day.

      I hope I can come back to explore! It’s a pretty busy schedule.

      I’m so sorry to hear about your break up, just keep staying positive and look at this as a good thing. A NEW CHAPTER A NEW YOU! When I went through my breakup, I was pretty sad, but I spent all the time focussed on bettering myself and my life. I wouldn’t be as happy as I am today, if I didn’t experience it 🙂 You seem like you have a good head on your shoulders and a good attitude! xo

      I think our pets are family too 😉 I’d rather be the crazy dog lady!

    OH MY GOODNESSS- YAYYYY! You are coming to SanFran!!!!!! That makes me so happy- I hope you love this city and I can’t wait to see what places you try out! Also- at a grocery store here called Sprouts they have Pumpkin Spice kale chips (like the Brad’s ones) and they are incredible. Just a thought while you are in California! AND YOU FOUND THE PUMPKIN NUTS! And just at CVS- how cool. Now we just need No Cow bars to come up with a pumpkin flavor. Have so much fun and safe travels!

    I also live in San Francisco, so I hope you have a great time! The city has so much to see, but my favorite is just walking a bunch, along the water front or Chrissy Field (you can see the Golden Gate Bridge) on lunch breaks I do Telegraph hill downtown for a nice view.

    I haven’t ever tried stitch fix because I don’t like spending money on clothes very often, but I have thought about trying it.

    I can’t wait for the October fitness Challenge! Bring it on. 🙂

    Have a great trip! I look forward to your photos.

      Hi Jenny!

      That sounds amazing! I’d be living for my lunch breaks if I were you. I’ll be picking your brain for suggestions when I come back. I want to bring my boyfriend here 🙂

      The great thing about stitch fix is that you can try it all on and if you don’t like anything you can send it back at no cost!

      glad you’re ready!!

    My parents lived right across the bay from SF in a little town called Tiburon for 3 years! If you have any spare time while you’re out there, I HIGHLY recommend taking the ferry over to Tiburon! It’s a 15 minute ferry ride, and it’s right next to Sausalito. It is a sleepy little town with panoramic views of SF and the Golden Gate Bridge!! One of my favorite places in the world! Such a charming little town with GORGEOUS views!!

    Yes, I live in SF (so excited you will be in my city!). There is great food and even better hiking. If you have time you should head to angel island or lands end trail, both so beautiful 🙂 If you love Mexican then head over to a neighborhood called ‘mission’ and you will find the best. Also, they have a farmers market at the Ferry Building on Thursday’s I bet you would like.

    I was using Sitch Fix for a while, but I found the prices to be a bit expensive, maybe if they could offer more price ranges.

    Enjoy your trip!!

      HI Sam!

      You’re making me want to visit and explore again! I love hiking 🙂 Wish I could experience it all!

      That is a great suggestion and I will bring it up! Could be cool to have a price range selection 🙂

      I do know that they sell some of their items on clearance.

    YES San Franciso is one of my FAVORITE cities!!! It’s so unique and there’s so much to explore. I’m so happy you’re flying out to check out Stitch Fix! I work part-time for them and they are such an incredible company. They are so fun and real and continue to grow in so many different ways. I can’t wait to see the post to see what you got! Did I mention I’m excited? haha

    Yes! I love your fit challenges. 🙂

    Have so much fun and can’t wait to read the recap!
