Staying on Track

Hey Guys!  I hope you are all having a fun Memorial Day Weekend!  I had a pretty solid week of staying on track with working out.  My runs were not so great, but I tried.  The heat is definitely here to stay and I picked the absolute worst times of the day to try and run.  All I did was make myself sick, so this next week I’ll be running in the early mornings or late evenings.  Not in the middle of the afternoon!   more “Staying on Track”

Life, Food, and Fitness Lately

Good Food, New Shoes, and a Weekend Getaway

Hey Guys!  I just had a really fun weekend!  We had a little overnight stay in Oklahoma City and I got to do some shopping!  And, even more importantly, I got new running shoes!  It was a nice getaway.  I didn’t do a recap last week because it was a really boring week.  So I know I owe you one!  I’ll get you caught up now on what I’ve been up to this past week. This is a long one, so grab a cup of coffee and get ready!  more “Good Food, New Shoes, and a Weekend Getaway”

One More Week To Go

Hey guys!  I hope you are all enjoying some beautiful weather!  It’s sunny and 70 today and I spent a lot of time outside walking today! I have exactly one week till my half marathon, and I’m still nursing a sore foot.  I’m going to really take it easy this week and pray that it holds up for the race.  I’m getting really excited to run it!  more “One More Week To Go”

How to Get 10,000 Steps A Day

Hey guys!  I get asked all the time how I get so many steps each day.  Yes, a lot of them do come from running, but even on rest days I still get 10,000 or more steps.  Each week I average between 14,000-15,000 steps a day.  Today I’m going to share some easy ways for you to get 10,000 steps a day.  more “How to Get 10,000 Steps A Day”

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

Happy Wednesday!  This week I made one of my most favorite meals and turned it into a meal prep so I could eat it every day!  I didn’t have much time (actually, none at all) on Sunday as I was busy working on some projects.  But, I was not going to miss prepping my meals for the week.  I made a slow cooker meal so I could just throw it in the containers!  It was simple, delicious, and fast!   more “Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas”

All About R.I.C.E.

This week was all about RICE!  That is not easy for me at all.  I tend to ignore aches and pains and keep pushing on.  But, I couldn’t ignore this.  I spent the first part of the week resting, icing, and elevating my feet while wearing compression socks.  So, this week was not a good one in terms of running.  But, it did get better towards the end, and my dad and I are planning a long run together next weekend.   more “All About R.I.C.E.”

Meal Prep Edition 8

Hey guys!  This weekend I was a little pressed for time, so I just threw something together for my lunches, but it turned out great!!  It’s always nice to have a few go-to meals that can be thrown together quickly so you still have something healthy to eat.  I also like to keep some ground turkey in the freezer so I can thaw it out and cook it and pair it with some veggies – fresh or frozen, whatever I have on hand.  more “Meal Prep Edition 8”
