I laced up my sneakers and headed out for my long run today. I meant to do it yesterday (since I don’t work on Friday’s) but was too busy sitting on my butt. I had NO excuses today. Especially when it came to weather. Maybe I could have used ” it’s too hot?” That’s right, [...]
Last night’s dinner was another one I’ve been looking forward to. I love when I read a recipe and I have all the ingredients already! It’s weirdly exciting. I found this recipe in Cooking Light magazine. I altered it slightly (so I guess I lied, I didn’t have all the ingredients-but I had good subs!). [...]
I received a wonderful package this afternoon….something I’ve been anticipating for a few days now. When I heard the UPS man pounding on the door, I jumped up with excitement to greet him. I figured it was either this glorious package….or my Vibrams, either way I couldn’t lose.
I grabbed the box from the UPS [...]
Yesterday’s gym time was pretty productive. The marathon training distance was just 3 miles, so I felt I could do a little weight training as well. Since I was running on the treadmill, I tried to keep the incline at a challenging level. I ended up running most of it between a 2.5-3.0 incline. I’m [...]
I’ve mentioned before that breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Usually, it consists more of “meals” than “meal.” I eat eggs for lunch, or waffles, yogurt, etc. I could eat breakfast foods all day long. I get overly excited when restaurants serve breakfast all day. But lately, I’ve been hitting a wall when [...]
Marathon Training: Week 3
Today’s run was a 5 miler at marathon pace. So, for me, I was trying to stay under an 8:20 min/sec pace. Of course, when I went to start the run, my Nike plus was yet again not working. I think it’s actually a problem with my ipod. I’ve had this [...]
So, when I started this blog I mentioned I would share my successes and failures with you. Well, last night could be considered a failure. I say “could be” because it was still edible…actually, pretty good. Basically, I bought the wrong main ingredient which as you might guess, changes the entire dish.
I guess I’m [...]
I’ve been thinking about last night’s dinner for about a week now. I’ve never really been into enchiladas. At mexican restaurants, I usually order fish tacos or something cheesy and fried. For some reason (mexican cheese, cream cheese, quesadilla cheese…), this enchilada recipe has been stuck in my mind. It seemed relatively easy and had [...]
Today was technically a “rest” day on the marathon schedule. But, I figured I took a rest day yesterday when I was supposed to cross train, so today was weight lifting day! I made up a circuit of 9 exercises and decided to do each one for a minute, completing the circuit three times (Spartacus [...]
You may have noticed the lack of blog posts in the past few days. Well, I’ve been pretty busy hanging out with the cutest girl in town (no not me…). This cutie:
My niece! My husband’s brother and his wife came into town this past weekend and brought their daughter, who Cliff and I [...]
