  1. What I Ate Wednesday–Still Job Hunting


    November 13, 2013 by Katie

    Good morning and happy Wednesday! For this week’s WIAW post, I chose my food from Monday, a typical day of job searching!

    If you’re new to What I Ate Wednesday, head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about, and to see the other participating bloggers!

    Peas and Crayons

    I started out my day by headed to the gym bright and early for a 3 mile run and a 12 minute HIIT workout from Purely Twins. When I got home I showered, got dressed and made some breakfast. For breakfast I made a bowl of Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal, however I nixed the chia seeds and added 1 T psyllium husk (I’m going to add less from now on… super weird texture), 1 tsp maca powder and 1 tsp spirulina, which is what gives this the bizzare green color. Topped with almond butter!

  2. What I Ate Wednesday–Whole Foods Style


    October 23, 2013 by Katie

    Happy Wednesday! I hope you’re all having a great week, and thank you for all your kind and thoughtful comments on yesterday’s post. I hope it was an exercise that you all can use in your own lives.

    Today’s What I Ate Wednesday post comes from Monday, where I had a good workout, a chiropractor appointment, and then several hours of job searching followed by some blog work. And, as you can tell by the title of this post, a trip to Whole Foods! If you’re new to WIAW, head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about and find other participating bloggers!

  3. What I Ate Wednesday–Job Search


    October 9, 2013 by Katie

    Hey all! I hope you’re all having a good week – halfway through! Although, personally, I wish time would just slow down a bit! It’s finally fall here in Chicago and I pulled out my jacket for the first time since May!

    For today’s WIAW, I’m showing you what I had yesterday, a day including a visit with my career counselor and some job hunting. If you’re new to What I Ate Wednesday, head on over to Peas and Crayons to find out what it’s all about!

    Peas and Crayons

    I woke up bright and early, posted to my blog, had some coffee and got ready for the gym. My stomach started growling before I headed out, so I also had about 1/3 a banana before leaving.

  4. WIAW–New Apartment


    September 4, 2013 by Katie

    Happy Wednesday!

    I’ll be showing you all pictures of my apartment once it’s a little more put together, but there is one thing that you should know. Although I got a great view, my kitchen got a serious downgrade:

    move 2

    Like whoa.

    This makes cooking a liiiiittle more difficult, but hopefully I figure out a way to make it work. I’m already planning on buying some extra shelving and an island to extend the kitchen out into the breakfast area, so that should help!

    Today’s WIAW came from yesterday, a day that I made a couple meals in my new kitchen. With very little unpacked and…

  5. Thursday Thoughts


    August 15, 2013 by Katie

    Anyone miss Thursday Thoughts? I did!!! Haha this is by far my favorite post of the week: an accumulation of many of the things running through my mind during the week, all saved up just for you!

    1. This past Saturday, Emily, her husband, sister and friend came to Chicago and we all met up for lunch at Hannah’s Bretzel. We’ve been following each other’s blogs forever and it was great to meet her in person! And we’ll be seeing each again soon at Healthy Living Summit!..

  6. Oh Hey!


    August 8, 2013 by Katie


    Anyone there?

    I’m baaaaaaaack!

    So my “break” from blogging extended a little further than I’d anticipated, mostly because my “break” wasn’t really a break at all, and I needed some time to relax, which basically just turned into apartment hunting and then starting job hunting. I’m not good at relaxing I guess…

    My time off from blogging got me thinking about a few things, including whether or not I’d return at all. I love this community, I love the friendships and connections I’ve made, and I love the opportunities I’ve been given. I was actually surprised, however, that I didn’t miss blogging at all. It was just one more added pressure that I did not need hanging over my head, and with the stress of…

  7. WIAW–A Day In the Life


    June 12, 2013 by Katie

    Hey everyone! Today’s WIAW follows me around on a normal study day! If you’re new to WIAW, be sure to head over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about and the other participating bloggers!

    Wake up. Drink about 1/3 of that coffee and some water while posting my blog.

    (just fyi – that cup is supposed to be bright yellow. just an indication of the beautiful 5am lighting…)

    Get dressed. Go to gym….

  8. WIAW–Bar Prep


    May 29, 2013 by Katie

    Hey everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying your 4 day week!!! For today’s WIAW, I wanted to show you a typical day of bar prep for me! Today’s WIAW comes from yesterday! If you’re new to What I Ate Wednesday, head over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about, and check out the other participating bloggers!

    I woke up around 4:50am, had some coffee and half a banana, put up my blog post and then headed off to the gym! Since Boot Camp ended last week I decided I wanted to focus more on strength and weights, so I’m following just the workout plan from Jamie Eason’s Livefit Trainer (NOT the meal plan) to get in some weights. Yesterday was chest & triceps, and I did 10 minutes of elliptical at the beginning and threw in 10 more at the end since I finished early.

    After the gym I headed home, showered, got dressed, packed up and had a few extra minutes so I decided to eat my overnight oats at home…

  9. Thursday Thoughts


    May 23, 2013 by Katie

    Hey everyone! I hope all of you are having a great week! Mine’s a little… overwhelming. But no need to bore you all with that! Today it’s time for another round of Thursday Thoughts!

    1. I bought Powerball tickets on Saturday hoping for some graduation luck… Sadly I didn’t win. I think I won $2 with one but I haven’t actually taken it in anywhere to find out. I actually don’t know where I take it… the place I bought it? #lottonewbie…

  10. WIAW–Crazy Busy Day


    May 15, 2013 by Katie

    Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a good week! Today at 4pm I pick up my take-home exam and I have 24 hours to complete it, so by 4pm tomorrow I am DONE with law school! YAY! Haha just have to survive the next day and a half and hopefully pass all my classes… fingers crossed!

    Today’s WIAW post comes from Monday, a day where I had a chiropractor appointment and then I volunteered in the afternoon. I thought it would only take an hour so I had a snack instead of lunch before (didn’t have time to sit down to lunch) but it ended up taking 2.5 hours… haha so my food from Monday is a bit all over the place and snacky, but that’s what happens when you’re busy I guess!
