We finally made it to Colorado! This was an epic trip. It was definitely much longer than we made it out to be. When we talked about it we’d casually describe it by saying, “we’re gonna drive from Cleveland, swing by Dallas to pick up our stuff (which, by the way, was a TON of [...]
I got a nice email today from the Boston Athletic Association and…
I was accepted into the Boston Marathon!
I’m so excited!
So who wants to train and run it for me?
Well, we’ve been on the road for 2 days now..only 2 more days to go! I was actually kind of sad to leave Cleveland. There were some tears streaming as we drove out of the city but the sadness has faded into excitement for our next adventure! Tears may have come easier than normal too [...]
Finally the savory post! I found a fair amount of savory pumpkin dishes out there but most of them involved pasta. I wanted something a little less carb heavy so I kept on searching and finally found a chili recipe! I knew this would work since it’s similar to the pumpkin enchiladas that I’ve made [...]
After running to the gym today, I did some weight lifting primarily focusing on my shoulders. I used the Nike Trainer app on my phone and added a few exercises of my own. When reading the Nike circuit, I didn’t think it would be too bad but I totally underestimated how hard doing anything for [...]
Pumpkin Week continues! I had a big dinner planned last night but we got a little sidetracked with car shopping. We’re thinking about trading in our current car for a more rugged, mountain beast, maybe a truck? Jeep Wrangler? We’ll see. Or maybe we should get a Subaru…then we’d really fit in. Oh wait, we’re [...]
Here’s another goodie I found on Pinterest: Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte!
I was so excited when I found this! I usually don’t hit up Starbucks too often but in the past week I’ve been 3 times, each time for the pumpkin spice latte. But those precious seasonal gems are not cheap coming in at [...]
Since I typically lean towards upper body workouts, I forced myself to exercise my lower body today. I didn’t use a particular workout, just kind of threw together a tough circuit that I know will leave my buns sore tomorrow.
I started it off with a run to the gym, which is about a mile. [...]
Okay, so I think I’ve made it pretty clear how much I love fall. I went by the grocery store yesterday and picked up two huge cans of pumpkin. This is our last week in Cleveland and apparently I want to make nothing but meals involving pumpkin, so I think I’m going to do so. [...]
So, I’ve been a little MIA the past few days..sorry about that. We had a great time in Chicago; the wedding was amazing! It was great seeing old friends and meeting new people. I love weddings, don’t you? How can you not? They’re such happy, fun occasions…open bars don’t hurt either.
Anyway, this next week [...]
