1. My dad once told me, “a sandwich is not a sandwich without some crunch.” I couldn’t agree more. Chips make for the ultimate crunch in a sandwich, but so does kale and chard.
2. I’ve consumed way too much coffee lately. Sigh.
3. I won the most amazing giveaway a few days ago. I was lucky enough to finally try Lindsay’s healthy bites and OH MY GOSH. They have been taunting me for months, but after tasting them..I died and went to heaven. Please order yourself some, NOW!
4. I was supposed to store my healthy bites in the freezer, but that was not necessary. I knew they would be gone within a few days…I was right…
5. I got my first pair of compression socks in the mail. They are cozy.
6. I signed up for my third half marathon in October. Whoop whoop. I am super jazzed.
7. The only reason I carry a bag while I’m away on day trips is to smuggle food with me.
8. I’m almost ashamed at the amount of PB I have eaten in the last week. Almost, but not really. I will be getting more the moment I hit publish on this post.
9. My cat has learned how to climb up jackets that are hanging on the wall. Such a ninja.
10. This post is ridiculously sporadic and has little to no depth. For a more meaningful post go back and read my last post about my amazing running. I love running. YAY running.
Q: What’s your confession?

My confession? I sit by my computer and wait for you to post….not how’s THAT for creepy?
Bahaha YES!! Not creepy at all, I love it.
I couldn’t love you any more!! Black like my soul… My co blogger and I always say that to each other – we wear black to match our souls! Ha!!!!
Also, yes, to Pro Compression + your next half in October! I’m so excited for you!
Your cat is adorable as a ninja… 🙂
That sandwich looks SO SO good and I am absolutely guilty of loading mine up with greasy chips sometimes… 🙂
Let’s see for my confession today: I am leaving for vacation tomorrow and cannot concentrate on anything work related at all! ahh! Have a fab day beautiful!
Amy @ A Desert Girl
See my post from today – it’s from the point of view of one of my cats, who tells me that she’s very interested in meeting your cat and learning the ninja technique for climbing up jackets. Have your cat’s people call my cat’s people.
Alex @ therunwithin
gosh this brings me back. when i was little my dad taught me no sandwich is complete without chips inside. he still does! my favorite was a tuna fish sandwich with fritos.
Heather @ HeatherRunsFast.com
Chips on sammies = awesomeness! I always liked BBQ chips on turkey 🙂 THe bag thing is too, funny… most girls I know have a purse- read bag- full of random female things, ie make up, brush, nail file, while I have a purse full of food. And sporadic posts are always my fave!
Mmmm…. healthy little balls of joy 😛 I’m glad you liked them! I used to stuff chips in hoagies and doritos into pb and j as a kid. Yeah, I was weird. I do the same thing with purses. You won’t catch me with one unless I have food with me lol!
Yay for PB…and AB!! And that is a fantastic idea to add kale to sandwiches. I need to give that a try! It would definitely give me some variety over the traditional lettuce or spinach.
Hmmmm my confession… I just received a MATCHING pair of black pro compression socks too!!!! It was weird though they accidentally sent them to Bren, so strange.
Hahahahahaha. SO strange!
He was all “oh you got black! can guys wear there?” and I came back with “well yea of course, but your calves are smaller than mine and they block socks have bright pink highlights…”
My sandwiches ALL look like that…I cram EVERYTHING inside and then squish it as much as possible to try and get my teeth around the whole thing without dropping anything. It doesn’t always happen. 😦
kathy @ vodka and soda
i confess that i’m going to do absolutely NOTHING all day since it’s my first day off in a long while. i just worked out like a mofo and now off to relax and watch Orange is the New Black on the couch.
Your father speaks very wise words… crunchy goes with sandwishes for sure. I love adding cucumbers for this factor. You can never have too much PB, silly! that is amazing you won a give away yayyyy!
Speaking of pb and crunch, you know what is really good? a pg and jelly sandwish layered with potote chips. try it. it is amazing.
You have been running so well!!! I still haven’t ran all week…. I am just accepting it and going to meet my running peeps tomorrow morning for a run (so no way can i miss it) and get back on track then. At least i am lifting a lot of heavy boxes and furniture…. my arms are working out. But then I plan to drink lots of wine to celebrate so maybe I’m canceling it all out…..
I need potato chips…right meow. I LOVEEE salty chips on the side of my PB&J to counterbalance the sweet of the sandwich…so putting them ON the sandwich..GENIUS!
Oh your blog is my favorite. There. Said it. I feel like you are quite possibly in my head with me 🙂 The cat and his tongue…Made me literally laugh out loud. Cats are so funny. And there is NEVER too much coffee 🙂
Her Happy Balance
Damn girl…that greens to bread ratio is intense! Is chard good uncooked? I was under the impression it was rather bitter. Perhaps I need to give it another chance.
I LOVE chard uncooked, it’s kale that is usually a bit bitter for me when raw. I found that when combining them both on a sandwich with mustard and other veggies I can’t even taste them!
Alex @ Brain, Body, Because
The contents of my bag are always 25% boring shit (wallet, phone, etc) and 75% snacks. The best part is that the bag gets lighter as the day progresses! get in mah belly nom nom nom
BEST CAT PHOTO EVER he looks super manic in the most adorable way ever
Brittany @ GOtheXtraMile
The first thing I noticed was your cats tongue hahaha. I love it. I always bring food with me wherever I go! And I am normally shopping for food…. or eating food. #foodieproblems
Love that cat- looks like my Spike who died a few years ago ):
That sandwich looks fabulous and there is no such thing as too much pb!
I used to put chips on all if my sandwiches when i was a kid…seriously best topping ever 😛 might have to try that again soon 😉
Yep, I’m always that girl who brings food with her everywhere. Don’t want to catch me in a hungry mood…it’s not the prettiest;)
Oh my gosh, your cat is such a cutie. I love black cats.
And I have to agree with the crunch on sandwiches. It’s a must.
Angela @ Health's Angel
“Black like my soul” Lol you crack me up.
Snacks are a necessary addition to bags and purses. I always have to have something with me or else I become a hangry monster!
kelly @ racesrepsramblings
This is hilarious! I love the last “this post has little to no depth, read my last post” So funny. AND I feel you on the whole PB thing. Holy monsters I love PB. Happy Friday! 🙂
Nicole @ FruitnFitness
A sandwich that isn’t over stuffed with ingredients doesn’t even count as a sandwich! Yay for signing up for the half 🙂
aww your socks look so cute! I’ve been wanting a pair but only find super duper expensive ones and I’m like Hmmmm… get nails done or buy socks. The nails always win LOL awwww ninja cat! Mine have been sloths and basking in the sun LOL I think the heat is getting to them :p
You’re hilarious! That sandwich does look hella good and very healthy, unlike the wings I will be indulging in tonight – there’s my confession, although it’s a little preemptive. I won those wings fair and square so no guilt. I bet you’re just drooling over me talking about meat. Ugh, I suck, sorry. Ok here’s another confession: I bought Enjoy Life chocolate chips, which are Paleo (but still chocolate chips), and I’ve been sneaking small handfuls wayyyyyyy too often in the last two days. Not so healthy if I eat them ALL, even if they are Paleo.
BAHAHA You eat those wings, and you enjoy every damn bite!! I have been grabbing SO many handfuls of chocolate chips too!!! I am so glad they are finally gone because I just couldn’t stop!
I completely agree with the crunch in a sandwich!! Deliciousness 🙂
My confession… I’ve eaten the peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwich I’ve mentioned on my blog twice this week and I’m not tired of it.
I don’t eat any meat..whatsoever..but that sandwich sounds UNREAL! Great idea.
I always bring food in my bag, too! So necessary 🙂
Which half are you doing? I am sure you have mentioned it before…I haven’t tried compression socks yet. It is something I need to do, but do I really want sock tans? lol~
This was the first time I mentioned the half! It’s the Poulsbo half in October! I am soo excited because I don’t have to travel for this one, it’s right around the corner! WHOO. As for sock tans, I think I will only use my compression socks AFTER a long run, not during! HA!
Lol I see! I thought they could be used while running! That’s great that it’s nearby! I’ll have to look it up!
I know some people wear them during runs, but I just know my feet would get WAYYYY too hot. They are pretty thick!
I looked up that half marathon and I think I’m going to do it!
AHH YES DO IT DO IT! We must find each other and snap pictures in our classy running gear!
I’m the same way with greens in my sandwiches! I can barely fit my mouth around the bread because I’ve added too much lettuce or spinach. It’s a good problem to have!
Growing up my favorite thing ever was ham, cheese, mayo and DORITOS on white bread haha. Things have changed a bit around here and now I prefer lettuce for my “crunch” too. But man those chip sandwiches were so good 😉
YES YES YES!! I swear this was literally my same exact sandwich go to. The thought of it now makes me shiver with disgust (mainly just the mayo, ham, and white bread part) but I would totally put Doritos on a sandwich now, although they have dairy in them so…I’ll have to find another chip! YUM!
My confession?? I willingly agreed to work a a 12 hour shift……..on the heels of an 8 hour shift at a different job……which means yes, I’ll work 20 hours today. Oops. Only young once, right?
Confessions 2, 7 & 8………are we twins that were separated at birth??!! I think yes.
Oh dear Lord, you are one strong working woman!! 20hrs is NO JOKE! Get some seriously sleep after today!
Hooray for Healthy Bites! You lucky duck!
I am SO with you on the coffee & PB consumption 😉
Let’s have coffee and PB together! I miss you and your posts!! ❤
Food smuggling is CRUCIAL! I love it. 🙂
Change of Pace
Agreed mr. Britt! A sandwich does need crunch! I still put pickles and chips in my veggie dog bun for that exact reason!
What half are you doing in October? I’m excited for you!
My confession: kale and chard make me feel like gagging. Can we still be friends?!
Of course we can still be friends, even though you called me MR. Britt HAHAHA. The half I am doing is RIGHT in my backyard, the Poulsbo half marathon. It’s going to be a 20 min drive to get there and I am so jazzed that I am not traveling for it!!
Your crunchy sandwich reminded me of when I used to put chips in my sandwich! Salt n vinegar chips in a veggie delite Subway? Deliciousness…
Your soul is not black! If anything its filled with rainbow confetti and sunshine! That sandwich is so ballin’ soooo many GREEEEENNNSSS! I love it. I have also consumed way too much coffee lately.. oh my. I bought green tea today and starting tomorrow I am going to *try* and make an effort to not consume any coffee… go cold turkey. I may die. 😀 Have a great weekend!!!!
No such thing as consuming to much peanut butter within a week. If you went through a jar a day, well then I’d be a bit concerned. 🙂
Melissa @ Al Forno Mementos
OMG chips in a sandwich. BEST ISH EVER! I’m on a lookout for a waterproof canvas bag. So I too can carry snacks and rubber band wad of cash along with my laptop for my coffee shop days. 😉
* Vegan Sparkles *
hehe, I love your ridiculously sporadic posts! Endlessly entertaining and cute as a button, just like you. 🙂 That ninja cat pic is hysterical. Love.
Arman @ thebigmansworld
Crunch in a sandwich… VERY necessary! Reminds me of my childhood putting potato chips in all my sandwiches.
And you can NEVER have too much coffee 😉
An Unrefined Vegan
Favorite sandwich as a kid: bologna, provolone cheese and potato chips.
Do not be ashamed about your love of PB; it’s a perfectly acceptable thing to eat directly from the jar with a spoon. I love your confession posts; they always make me smile. Speaking of smiling, my all black cat Max does that same thing….sticks his tongue out just slightly, not the ninja stuff. I swear they are brothers from another mother. I will send you an Instagram picture soon to prove it. Happy Saturday.
WOO!!! Third half marathon!!!!! 😀
Omg, that picture of your cat! Love it! Cat pictures always capture so much personality haha 🙂
Peanut butter and I have been best friends lately too. Actually, we’ve always been best friends, but we’ve been especially close lately. No shame.
Oooh I just caught up on your earlier post and go YOU! Sounds like your running has grown to another level and I am thrilled for you! I was going through a funk with it earlier this year but am loving to run more than ever lately! And hey, there’s no such thing as “too much peanut butter”!
Barbara Bamber | justasmidgen
My confession.. I’m at the lake visiting my parents by myself.. and so happy my family isn’t here with me:) I have four days of not worrying about anyone else but myself.. I’m so selfish! Love those socks.. the bites, but I love your Ninja the best:D
YOU ENJOY THAT TIME AWAY! You deserve it!! Not selfish at all.
Luv What You Do
I ordered compression socks too! Can’t wait!
My confession is that I am LOVING the Tour De France.
Dawn Robinson (@dawnro1101)
My confession is that I love random posts…maybe because I’m so random.
My confession is that being on vacation makes me like the blogging break and hate it at the same time. Whattt.
Just got compression socks! I can’t wait to try them.
I’ve never worn compression socks before! But I’ve heard a lot of good things about them. They look cute!
Matt @ The Athlete's Plate
Your dad is a smart man 🙂
Jan @ Sprouts n Squats
3rd half marathon is impressive ! 🙂
Those bites look and sound delicious, no wonder they didn’t last.
Your cat looks so much like mine! I love that haha!! And I’ve been wanting to try health bites for a while now 🙂
Sarah @ Feeeding the Brain and Body
Wait.. there is such a thing as too much coffee?! That is news to me 😉
I have been so tempted to get myself compression socks! Everyone raves about them. I’m doing another half in october too, maybe I will get a pair before then! 🙂
Lucy @ Lucy On The Lookout
I’m a total food hoarder/carrier too – I carry two bags to work, one is filled with tupperware boxes and the other is filled with snacks, it’s the only way 😉 ! Way to go on the running and the half marathon, sounds like you are on a complete roll with the running now so best to ride that wave! Love the cat photo too – looks like he is scoping me out 8)
i’ll send you more healthy bites if you send me that sandwich, deal? love me some crunchy salty goodness.
Alex @ Cookie Dough Katzen
Haha food stashing- love it! No shame, no shame! Ah peanut butter is always good. I tried your peanut butter with a few chocolate chips the other day as a dessert and it was amazing. 😀
Hurray for ninja cat!
Rach @ This Italian Family
Bhaha! Seriously your cat pictures always crack me up! Also, I am all about your sammy with a crunch! I haven’t tried crunchier greens in a sandwich. That’s a great idea!
di @ life of di.
Weird similarities: I am running my third half marathon in October too 🙂 and I just got my first pair of compression socks in the mail! 😀
