My peanut butter consumption is at an all-time high. In the last 24 hours I’ve eaten…

Peanut butter toast on Great Harvest Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin with honey, bananas and cinnamon.

Plain Greek yogurt with apple butter, Trader Joe’s Trek Mix Granola Cereal and peanut butter.

Apple cinnamon oatmeal with pumpkin in the Trader Joe’s peanut butter jar that I finished off when I ate the peanut butter banana toast.

I received a request to post my playlist from last night’s yoga class.Β 

My Wednesday night hot vinyasa class at Y2 is a party! πŸ˜‰ We sun saluted, back bended, inverted, flowed, crunched and flowed some more before finally enjoying 10 minutes of pigeon and savasana on the floor.

Today is my first “full-time” day at Metro Fitness Club! Even though I announced my new position last week the agreement was that I would be kind of in and out until March 1 as I wrapped up other commitments. It felt so good to wake up this morning and know I was heading into the club for the day! It’s been a great first day!

And can we please take a moment to appreciate the view from my office? I have been longingly gazing at Yoforia all day. It’s 80 degrees in Charlotte today. Frozen yogurt, please!

Peanut Butter Runner was nominated for “Best Personal Trainer Blog” in Fitness Magazine’s Fitterati blogger awards!

I was super shocked to receive the email from Fitness notifying me that PBR was nominated. You can vote here!

HAPPY MARCH 1st!!!Β Come on, spring!

    Peanut butter owns my soul πŸ˜‰

  • Amy March 1, 2012, 6:43 pm

    There are so many days where I think, “Gosh, I have eaten way to much PB today!”

    Hope you had a great first day at Metro!

    • Jen March 1, 2012, 7:56 pm

      i know the feeling all to well…then i just switch to another type of nut butter! πŸ˜‰

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss March 1, 2012, 6:48 pm

    I go through a jar a week…sometimes faster than that!

    • Jen March 1, 2012, 7:56 pm

    • Jen March 2, 2012, 4:11 pm

  • Kate March 1, 2012, 8:17 pm

    Yay!!!! Thanks for posting, Jen!!!

    I am with you on high pb consumption. I’ve been using pb flour in my oats to curb my obsession with real pb – almost out and can’t wait to get back to my fav TJs jar of perfection.

    Congrats for your nomination and for completing your first full day!!!!

    • Jen March 2, 2012, 4:11 pm

      you’re welcome!

      i have pb flour in my pantry but i never use it. i’ll have to try it in my oats!

  • Michelle March 1, 2012, 8:26 pm

    I just voted for you, good luck!! Yoforia is definitely my favorite self-serve yogurt place in Atlanta and I think I’ve tried them all. There’s something about the flavor/consistency that I like better than the others. Luckily I live near one and treat myself most weekends! God only knows how often I would go if I worked across the street from one. Good luck with that! πŸ˜‰

    • Jen March 2, 2012, 3:40 pm

      thank you for voting michelle! i really like yoforia too. we have menchie’s here and i like that too. i am going to have to be super careful this summer not to spend my whole paycheck on froyo! πŸ˜‰

  • Holly March 1, 2012, 8:42 pm

    A coworker was eating PB with an apple today. I was very PB jealous!

    Happy 1st day!

    • Jen March 2, 2012, 3:39 pm

      haha – i love PB jealousy. i would totally have it too! first day was great! πŸ™‚

  • Alaina March 1, 2012, 8:50 pm

    • Jen March 2, 2012, 3:39 pm

    The weather is incredible today! My lunchtime power yoga class was outside and it was fantastic! Congrats on being nominated for the award – you deserve it! I voted!

    • Jen March 2, 2012, 3:31 pm

      i love outdoor yoga when the weather is nice. thanks for taking the time to vote!

  • Lee March 1, 2012, 9:55 pm

    I want to find a yoga class that plays music like that. All the ones that I’ve ever tried are either no music or very new-agey music.

    • Jen March 2, 2012, 3:31 pm

      the studio is awesome! the classes are hot, sweaty and fast-paced with fun music. it’s like no other yoga! i have yet to find anywhere in ATL that even slightly compares.

  • meghan@strugglemuffins March 1, 2012, 10:17 pm

    Congrats! So many exciting things!

    Voted! While I don’t think I have ever commented on your blog before you are my most favorite blogger.
    You just seem like the kind of gal I’d love to sit down and drink wine and eat cupcakes with.
    Enjoy all the exciting changes in your life.

    • Jen March 2, 2012, 3:29 pm

      lisa – thank you so much for voting and for the sweet comment. i LOVE wine, cupcakes and conversation! πŸ™‚

    I’ve just started reading your blog and really love it – so not surprised that you were nominated for best personal trainer blog! I work right down the street from your new office so I recognize the view and you have a bonus of a great coffee shop below you! Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your page and I’m glad to know that someone else eats as much peanut butter as I do ( :

    • Jen March 2, 2012, 3:28 pm

  • Linda March 2, 2012, 12:45 pm
