We made it to Tuesday: Grab your coffee & let’s catch up!

lifestyle blog, weekly recap post what didd this week food idea dinner run 5k train fitness weight challenge

I had a few people ask me if I was going to have the recap post up soon. I felt bad that I wasn’t on top of it, but it was one of those days where I just stared at the computer screen and couldn’t bring myself to write anything. Since I couldn’t find the rhythm, I chose to work on something else and save the recap post for another day. Creative blocks are common, but sometimes pushing through feels impossible. I also feel like last week was so uneventful and hesitated to even write a recap post. I apologize for the potential snoozefest that may take place this week, but if you’re looking for some meal ideas or running inspiration, I may be able to help! I’m not saying my creative flow is back because it’ most certainly isn’t, but I’m going to try my best to let the recap flow.
salad grilled chicken blueberries salad dairy free lunch dinner gluten free paleo organic girl dressingOne of the reasons why my week wasn’t eventful was that I had a lot of writing to catch up on. I spent several days editing my travel video and writing all about my trip to the Brunswick Islands. It’s still one of my favorite blogs I’ve ever written. I had so much fun there and can’t wait to visit again. Maybe that’s the blog that drained me and took away all my creativity. If that’s the truth, it’s all worth it.

On Monday evening, I grilled some chicken to go on top of a baby kale salad for dinner. I used the new pomegranate vinaigrette from Organic girl, and it was pretty good! The only issue with the dressing is that it clumps up in the refrigerator. I added sunflower seeds, avocados, and blueberries to the top.
running training exercise simply taralynn fitness run healthy weightlossMy allergies were at a high time high while running outside on Tuesday morning. The good thing is that so many of you sent me amazing tips that have seemed to help. The allergies can get so bad where it feels like your throat is closing up, which is no good when you’re trying to run. I’ll share all of those tips in a separate blog post. I know many of you were requesting that I share, so I’ll write about the ones that have helped me so far.ย healthy food chicken salad protein iron baby kale smoothie green dairy free gluten free hummus carrots
I spent the rest of Tuesday writing and editing, which takes place on the couch and my kitchen table. For lunch, I had a baby kale salad with carrots, roasted red pepper hummus, avocado, and my homemade chicken salad.

For dinner, I had a protein smoothie with spinach, plant-based vanilla protein powder, frozen banana, ice, almond milk, and a scoop of Amazing Grass. Later in the evening, I ended up eating half a bag of Siete chips with salsa, so I consider that balance.ย dairy free gluten free blueberry muffins chocolate chips
I had a doctor’s appointment on Wednesday and then ended up spending the whole day power cleaning. This was one of those big power cleans where not a floorboard is missed! It really needed to be done, and I always feel like I can work or relax better when the house is tidy. I got the stress-cleaning gene from my mom. She does the same thing! Whenever we feel overwhelmed or in a rut, we tend to clean everything.

After cleaning, I decided to end Wednesday with a bake session. I made some delicious muffins to bring over to Caitlins. I love her appreciation for baked goods!ย running training exercise simply taralynn fitness run healthy weightloss
I headed out on my run Thursday morning. I’ve been trying my best to get up early for my runs since the summer heat has already arrived. Even though I managed to run early, the heat was turned up! I’ve never been a huge sweater, but I was dripping. I think I’m going to have to start waking up at 5 am and running at 6 am. If any of you want to share your “running before the sun comes up” tips, I’ll gladly take them! I’m not one of those people that can get out of bed and go to a workout. I have to have about an hour to drink some coffee and wake up before doing anything physical.ย gluten free dairy free protein smoothie bowl spiraling spinach kale granola chocolate chips kiwi healthy banana protein healthy snacking lunch
After my run, I needed something refreshing so I made a protein smoothie bowl for lunch. It had a frozen banana, baby kale, ice, almond milk, amazing grass, protein powder, and topped with granola, chocolate chips, kiwi, and honey.
beer garden cider volleyball Charlotte North Carolina peanut butter gluten free honey snack rice cake coffee
While doing computer work, I had a rice cake with peanut butter and honey. This is seriously the best snack combo ever!

I headed uptown for the volleyball game at 8:30 pm. Not going to lie, the late games are painful, but they always end up being a lot of fun. The issue this time was that I managed to lose my glasses on Sunday. I set them down on the tennis courts while I was playing with Kyle, and someone picked them up. I was so sad because they were my favorite glasses, I had paid way too much for them, and I knew I would have to go back to the eye doctor to get new ones since I never wrote down my previous prescription. Plus, I’m super blind at night and can’t see far away, so this was going to make for a very interesting nighttime game!ย Charlotte southend Mexican restaurant superico fajitas
Even though I could barely see the ball, I managed to survive the game without getting hit in the face. That was my main goal for the night. I decided to crash at Caitlin’s instead of driving all the way back home, especially since I didn’t have my glasses. That would have been a nightmare and I wasn’t about to put anyone’s life in danger.

We wanted to grab food at a new Mexican restaurant in Southend called Supericoย for a late-night dinner. We didn’t have the best experience there. I won’t go into the whole story because I hate doing that to businesses, but I will say they had the best tortilla chips. If you’re looking for a place for great drinks, good atmosphere, and the best chips, you’ll love it.ย blueberry breakfast protein pancakes gluten free dairy free low carb paleo birchblender
I headed home at 7 am so I could beat the morning traffic. I had my coffee, walked the dogs, and then made protein pancakes for breakfast. I always use the Paleo Birch Bender mix with one scoop of vanilla plant protein powder, water, and blueberries! I love adding all the extra blueberries.ย grilled chicken French fries legal remedy brewery rock hill south carolina downtown rock hill Winthrop universe chicken aloe good food in rock hill south carolina
I got extremely lucky because my eye appointment wasn’t until late May, but I called to see if they could “PLEASE” get me in. I was kind of desperate since I’m not legally supposed to be driving without glasses, and I can’t play tennis without them. They said they had an opening for the afternoon, and I took it. I’ve never been more excited for a doctors appointment before. Also, the new technology they have for your eyes is pretty amazing!

After my appointment, I picked up my mom for lunch since she works right by my eye doctor. We stopped at Legal Remedy Brewery for some tasty food!

grilled vegetables shrimp healthy food grilling summer seafoodWhen I was at the grocery store, I saw that Earthfare had wild-caught shrimp, and so I picked some up for dinner. I can’t eat shrimp if it’s farm-raised, and since I was in the mood for seafood, I knew I had to make shrimp on the barbeque! I marinated the shrimp with Jamaican jerk seasoning, gluten-free soy sauce, and a tablespoon of hickory bbq sauce. For the vegetables, I tossed them in a little avocado oil, sea salt, and black pepper.ย grilled vegetables shrimp healthy food grilling summer seafood sweet potato garlic puree
No how delicious does this look? I think this is a pretty delicious way to start a Friday night. I also had a little glass of pinot noir to go with dinner because it complimented it perfectly. For the puree, I steamed a large potato, removed the skin, and added it to a blender with one tablespoon dairy-free yogurt, a pinch of sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and blended it until it was creamy. This whole dish tasted heavenly!
republic tea hot water blueberry super tea
After dinner, I made a cup of blueberry hibiscus tea from The Republic of Tea. I also added a drop of honey and lemon juice. It tasted like a lemon blueberry cake! I’ve been drinking these non-stop for the past week. Tea helps me with mindless snacking and my sweet cravings.

We ended up watching Zac Efron’s new movie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile. I think they did a really good job at leaving all of the gory details out and not glorifying Ted Bundy. The documentary made my stomach hurt and I could hardly get through it, and the movie didn’t show the whole story, which I’m fine with. I read a pretty accurate movie review on Den of Geek, which explains it better.
running training exercise simply taralynn fitness run healthy weightlossI woke up on Saturday morning for my run! It was misty, humid, and felt awful! When I got inside, I immediately showered, and had some tea! I was just happy that the run was over with for the day because I did not want to go back out in that heat to run for a while.

PS, this sweet & spicy tea tastes like a cinnamon orange dessert! It tastes just like the Harney & Sons but without any of the artificial sweeteners.ย blueberry breakfast protein pancakes gluten free dairy free low carb paleo birchblender
For breakfast, I made my protein pancakes! I always look forward to these, especially on a Saturday morning. Kyle woke up and caught me making these and of course requested some chocolate ones. For the chocolate ones, I make them the same way but use chocolate protein, chocolate chips instead of blueberries, and a little peanut butter.ย dog pool summer fun backyard grumbles and Leo goldendoodles summerdog pool summer fun backyard grumbles and Leo goldendoodles summer
Once the rain stopped, we decided to take the boys over to my parent’s house to hang out in the backyard. We wanted to set the pool up for them because we didn’t have to much luck with it at the place. The boys ended up LOVING IT! They kept running in and out of the pool (which is why it got so muddy) and they loved fetching for the pool toys when we threw them in.


We had a little incident with Leo. He was running around like a crazy dog with Grumples and didn’t pay attention to where he was running. He managed to place his foot in the firepit. He cried so loud for a long time, and we rushed to place his paw in the ice cold water. Luckily, we got to it fast enough, but it still burned through his paw pad. He has been limping on the foot, and we have the vet appointment set up for this afternoon to get it looked at. I’ll make sure to keep you guys updated. I feel so bad for him! The burn is pretty severe, and I can tell that it’s frustrating for him because he can’t play or go on walks. I’ve been keeping a sock on his foot to keep him from licking and biting. I also have been cleaning the burn every 2-3 hours. Luckily, he lets me hold an ice cold towel on it with pressure, and I think he thinks it feels good.

Here’s the link to the dog pool we got the dogs! We bought the XXL size, and it’s perfect!ย pizza tortillas low carb gluten free eggs healthy foodie quick dinner low carb gluten free dairy free day vegan cheese
When we got home, I ended up falling asleep on the couch. Being out in the sun, waking up at 4:30, and not drinking as much caffeine had me out for a few hours. It takes a lot for me to take a nap, so I was proud of myself when I woke up.

Kyle and I have been working on this 1500 piece puzzle of our dogs (is that weird? lol) for the past few days. So we made tortilla pizzas and omelets while we watched basketball and worked on the puzzle. How about that for an exciting Saturday night?ย akahana sushi fort mill baxter village gluten free chicken lettuce wraps
On Sunday, I met up with Becca for a girl’s day. We spent the morning shopping around at thrift stores, grabbing a coffee, and then having lunch at Akahana in Fort Mill. I love their gluten free chicken lettuce wraps so much! After our lunch, we headed to Sprouts to grocery shop, and I picked up groceries for the week.
vegan broccoli salad with figs tahini dairy free gluten free healthy recipes summer saladFor dinner, I had my leftover lettuce wrap and my homemade broccoli slaw (THAT IS TO DIE FOR) on top of a salad! Kyle and I watched American Idol while I blogged a recipe.

By the way, I finally hit 4-miles yesterday! Can’t wait to share all of that in next week’s recap blog!

    I have also been reading your blog forever. I first found it on maternity leave when I had a lot of free time, but I never stopped reading it no matter how busy I got! I only follow your blog and two others. I know that people give you a hard time anytime you make a typo or anytime you share an opinion that someone may not agree with, but I think thatโ€™s the kind of stuff that makes you so real. I appreciate that you donโ€™t seek out validation from others to make yourself feel good and you already have confidence because you know who you are. I feel like you know how big your platform is and you use it in a way to inspire others and teach us all new things. I teach my daughters to always be themselves and to remember that God stooped everything he was doing to create them exactly how he wanted them! Itโ€™s hard today to remain original but I think you do a great job!

    I think I have probably been reading your blog for about 10 years now (haha)! How long have you been blogging? I keep coming back because I love getting healthy lifestyle ideas. I also particularly love your running pictures. I run too, and I always try to take pictures as I go. Everything seems so pretty when you have endorphins pumping! Keep up the good runs (and pictures)!

    I think a weekend in Charlotte guide post would be really neat! More things to add to my bucket list. =)

    I’m having a cozy, rainy, calm sort of day.

    Thanks for sharing Taralynn!

      Hi, Amanda!

      It’s been about 10 years now lol Thank you for following along for all of it! I agree with you! I’m going to start running in new locations now that I’m back to three! I used to think it was a waste to run in new locations if I was only going a mile or two. Since I’ll be doing five on Friday, I’ll take pictures of everything along the way! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ So awesome you’re a runner!

    HI Taralynn!

    I also saw this movie with Zac Efron and I couldnยดt sleep almost all night. I ended with my stomach hurt as well..

    I like reading your recaps because I feel like your writing itยดs 100% natural, you are not like most of the bloggers lately. You are honest and faithful to your values ๐Ÿ™‚ And I share the love for salads with you!

    Definitely yes for a “Weekend in Charlotte” guidepost!

    My day started really bad because I argued with my boyfriend for the first time in our 6-months relationship. I felt really bad and I couldnยดt focus on work. But then something good happened. My wallet was stolen in metro few days ago and today the police found it! With all my documents and cards inside. So at least one good notice ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a nice week!

      I’ll for sure plan out the weekend in Charlotte guide!


      Sorry to hear about your argument ๐Ÿ˜ž I know that can really get you down. Hopefully, it’s an argument that will make your relationship stronger. That is so amazing your wallet was found and with all of it inside! I can’t imagine how stressful that must have been! So good to hear!!!

I always get some sort of inspo, whether itโ€™s fitness-related, DIY projects, a new recipeโ€”even on your โ€œuneventfulโ€ weeks ๐Ÿ™‚ It feels like when a friend of mine and I meet up over coffee. We never say โ€œWeโ€™ll just meet up when we have something new/exciting to report.โ€ We meet up to talk about anything/nothing and itโ€™s great!

    Uh, what brings me “back” to your recaps? I guess you can say “back,” even if I have read practically every single one. I can miss a whole week’s worth of posts, but you better believe I’ll catch back up ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s so fun to see slivers of other people’s lives (especially beautiful people, inside and out, like you!) And you give meal inspo, exercise motivation, travel fomo (uh, I mean.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ haha). It’s just a refreshing place to take a dip when we want to refocus in our own lives, I think! So, thanks for being that little ray of sunshine, Tara! โ™ฅ

    I actually said aloud, “Oh no!” when I read that your glasses were stolen. How awful! Who does that? Ugh. Anyway, I wanted to throw out a couple of my absolute FAVORITES for new glasses. For my “normal” glasses, I love Warby Parker online. You can try on up to five pairs for FREE for an entire week (they just have plastic lenses during that time. It’s to let you see what you actually like on your face! It’s fantastic, convenient, and did I mention completely free?) and once you place your order, the glasses come in literally DAYS. Mine have always lasted for years, too! My poly-carbonate frames (which I love because they are light weight and also adorable) were $95… total. Not just the frames with super expensive lenses on top of that – that was the whole cost! It’s the best thing ever.

    For prescription sunglasses, my favorite place to shop is Zenni online! They have a million pair that I think are horribly ugly, I must confess, but when I find some fun/cute frames that make good sunglasses it’s FANTASTIC. We’re talking like $60 for prescription, polarized lens sunglasses. You don’t find that price literally anywhere else. I bought two pair last time I got new ones! The downside to Zenni is that (because they are so affordable) they are not as fast on the manufacturing front. But I think they are super worth it. You can get different colored lenses, different color gradients (you know, the kind of sunglasses where the top is darker and the bottom still lets you see your hands inside the car?), polarized or non polarized, and multiple coatings, thicknesses, etc. I could go on, but the jist is: Highly recommended! And if you’re looking for a bit more of a discount, you can always check out Raise.com for discounted gift cards to purchase before making your online orders! I got a free $10 Caribou Coffee card last time I ordered โ™ฅ

    I think that’s enough typing. Sorry this is so ridiculously long, but I wanted to bring a little sliver of sunlight into the sadness of losing a pair of much loved glasses!

    P.S: Praying for poor Leo and his lil’ burnt paw! What a rough thing for a pup!

    Hey Taralynn!

    Is there a reason why you’re allergic to farm raised shrimp but not wild caught? I find that so weird/interesting…

    Reply to Patricia Lico
    • Taralynn McNitt

      Hi, Patricia!

      It is very very weird. I never knew farm-raised shrimp was an issue until I told my doctor that sometimes I get sick when I eat shrimp and sometimes I don’t. He told me to do a test and to eat farm-raised one week and wild-caught the next week. The wild-caught I was fine, and the farm-raised I was dizzy with nausea several hours later. There could be so many reasons why/or what I’m allergic to exactly but with farm-raised shrimp going through so much contamination, it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what it is that makes me sick. All I know is that I avoid it at all cost and same thing with scallops! Although, I can’t eat fresh scallops either.

    I love your recaps because you’re real. You’ve mentioned before how some bloggers hire people to write their posts and fill them with fluff. While I’ve never come across one, it doesn’t sound like something I’d be interested in. I like hearing from you and about your life. I feel like we’re friends and reading your recaps is like a weekly check-in phone call to see how you’re doing (sorry if that sounds weird, promise I’m not a creeper ๐Ÿคฃ lol) I celebrate with you and am sad with you. When I see how well you’re doing on your runs I’m like yes girl!! Keep it up! And when I read Leo hurt his paw I’m like aww oh no poor Leo, feel better pup! Thank you for always allowing us into your life no matter what it consists of, I know it can be hard putting such personal stuff on such a public platform and I always appreciate your openness and that you stay authentic. โค

    Hey Taralynn! I totally understand not having the creative juices flowing! I’ve felt that way a lot recently.

    I love your recap posts. I feel like we live a pretty similar lifestyle, so I love to see new foods to try, new ways to top my salad, etc.

    I would love to see a weekend in Charlotte post. I live in Atlanta, so Charlotte isn’t too far away and I’d love to spend some time there.

    So far my day has been busy, a little sleep deprived, but I’m finally inspired again. So great day so far.
