Very Inspired Blogger Award + Froyo and Delta Labs Green Tea + Flash Giveaway!

Did you see my Chi Marathon training update yesterday?

Recently I was nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award by Sweaty Mess Mama which is amazing. I didn't know she was a reader of mine, and I'm glad to hear she thinks I'm inspiring! Sometimes I forget that more than 5 people sometimes read this blog! 
So these are the award rules:
  • Thank and link to the person who nominated you
  • List the rules and display the award.(Voila!)
  • Share seven facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 other amazing blogs and comment on their posts to let them know they have been nominated. 

7 Facts about Lauren 

  1. I love pancakes and waffles. Breakfast for dinner is always acceptable. 
  2. I'm a huge Francophile and was a French minor in college.
  3.  I always save room for dessert
  4. If Sex and the City is on TV, I watch it-even though I've seen every episode at least 10 times. (i.e. this weekend, haha)
  5. I don't really own matching workout/running clothes. I should buy some more matching outfits. 
  6. I'm easily scared and pretty jumpy. Yeah, not a fan of scary movies. 
  7. My feet are always cold-I usually need to sleep with socks!



A bonus fact is that I love ice cream. Sunday was apparently National Ice Cream Day, and I missed out! WHAT?! So last night I made Chocolate Covered Katie's recipe for Brownie Batter Frozen Yogurt with plain Greek yogurt and a whole ton of mini chocolate chips with my ice cream maker. 
OH yeah.
 It was SO amazing that I still don't believe it was a healthy, protein-packed dessert.  
That means it's okay for for me to eat 3/4 of the batch, obviously

I read too many awesome blogs to choose from so I'm nominating my readers (Yes, YOU!) to tell me a fact about yourselves in a comment below! 


It can be anything-favorite foods/TV/movies, weird facts, boring facts, or anything at all you feel like sharing with me!

  1. Sooo let's plan on having lots of pancake dates after long runs now that I'll be living downtown. Slash you can run your 20 miles and I'll cap out around 10 and still eat all the pancakes ;)

  2. so, maybe this is super crazy, but I had fro-yo friday afternoon after a particularly heinous morning.....and I don't like it. Not even a little bit. I'm an ice cream girl all the way!!

    and I feel you with the cold feet; it was nearly 100 degrees yesterday afternoon and I was wearing socks at my desk because my toes were frozen.

    1. No you're not crazy I get it. I haven't had froyo in a while and don't mind-I have really been wanting ice cream everyday though (sshhhh it's still better! Yes, my feet are forever cold and so is my office!

      Delete
  3. One fact? That I'm going to need to go buy an ice cream maker after reading this. That fro yo looks amazing! (I totally went all out on Sunday too haha. Frozen yogurt twice. I like to celebrate big.)

    1. The ice cream maker was a gift and sadly doesn't get used nearly enough. I may have to make this greek froyo every week though-it's healthy! Go big or go home!

      Delete
  4. Yay! I love that you're a fellow Francophile! I actually have a bachelors in French (which sadly I dont do much with anymore), so I love finding others who share my Frenchie love! Also, that froyo looks A.MAZ.ING. I need that in my life, immediately.

    1. Oh no way, that's cool! I need to hit up some Rosetta Stone and dust off my French skills (if I have any left!).

      Delete
  5. Ugh! I need an ice cream maker!!

    Replies
    1. It's pretty great! You can always look into getting a kitchen aid ice cream extension part if you have one of those!

      Delete
  6. Ice cream is definitely awesome :0) I am a Sex and the City fan as well - I love when I see it on TV!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I love it on TV but hate all the censoring and cutting they do to some of the episodes!

      Delete
  7. I love pancakes and waffles, too :) Except, I've been favoring french toast lately - with lots of cinnamon! Random fact: we got an ice cream maker 2 years ago as a wedding gift and we still haven't used it... So bad!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ah it's been a while since I've had French toast, which is equally as delicious! This ice cream maker was a gift-it takes up a lot of space but I'm determined to use it more. I just always forget to freeze the bowl part before I want to make some!

      Delete
  8. I love breakfast too! I could eat it all day long.

    So one fact about me: I will randomly break out in song to add humor to a situation or make a horrible day better.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I could eat breakfast for every meal, probably. That's an awesome fact-so fun!

      Delete
  9. My boyfriend and I have pancakes every Saturday morning after my long run. FTW!!!

    Random Fact: I can solve a Rubik's Cube in 1 min and 40 seconds.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's an AWESOME ritual! And you rock-I don't think I've ever solved a Rubik's Cube. I get too frustrated!

      Delete
  10. Your Sex & The City habit is like my Full House and Friends habit, LOL! It just makes me happy ;)

    Replies
    1. Haha yes, now that everything is rerun on TV it's the best!

      Delete
  11. I was a French minor in college... but dropped it 6 credits short, whoops.

    But I have been to Paris three times and Montreal, oui oui!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's awesome! I'm dying to go to Quebec and Montreal. I've only been to Paris once-it's been too long!

      Delete
  12. I'm the same way with Sex in the City! Although looking at their old cell phones now is pretty hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh my goodness I know! And how Carrie didn't have a cell phone forever and relied on voicemail-it seems we could never do that nowadays!

      Delete
  13. so many things - but particularly #6. i can see someone coming and still jump when they say something. yay to ice cream!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It happens to me all the time at work-ridiculous.

      Delete
  14. Breakfast for dinner is the best! Love waffles and pancakes too! One random fact would be I don't like eating real cold foods. I'd rather eat a room temperature salad than a crisp, cold one.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm glad you agree! I don't like drinking ice cold water often-I usually drink room temp out of my water bottle. Weird!

      Delete
  15. That fro yo does look delish! Look, you are inspiring me again to get an ice cream maker!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Definitely! Mine was a gift, but if you have a kitchenaid mixer the ice cream attachment isn't that expensive (and takes up less room!)

      Delete
  16. I have spent the last 2 hours reading healthy lifestyle blogs, while drinking a coke (dreaming of chips and dip with a side of chocolate) and telling myself I need to do this. All while knowing I won't give up overeating (I'm a major food addict) and start riding my bike.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's all good. I'm usually not working out and eating real deal pancakes or something while I read about what all these healthy people are doing. Start with something little and set small goals for yourself! The hardest part for me is getting dressed to go workout!
