Life, Food, and Fitness Lately

Hey Everyone!  How was your week?  Mine was pretty great!  I had a good week of workouts.  I did a killer leg circuit on Thursday and my legs were still sore on Saturday!  My runs this week were okay.  I had a couple of bad ones, but that happens.  You just have to try again!  Here’s what I have been up to this week.    more “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”

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.”

Spring Has Sprung!

Hey Everyone!  I hope you have had a great first week of spring!  We had some record breaking temps this week.  It was in the 90’s at the beginning of the week and then stayed in the upper 80’s the rest of the time.  It was so nice!   We were able to sit outside after dark and enjoy the warm weather.  The evenings offered the perfect running weather.  And, I love warm mornings.  I am so ready for summer!  more “Spring Has Sprung!”

Meal Prep Edition 6

Hey guys! Happy Hump Day!  Things have finally settled down around here and I have had some time to do some real meal prepping.  I love having just quick go to meals that I can prep quickly, but I do get tired of them sometimes.  The last couple of weeks I have been eating yogurt with fruit for breakfast and ground turkey and steamed veggies for lunch.  I have been buying the frozen steamer veggies.  By doing that, I can have my meals prepped for the week in less than 30 minutes.  But, I was ready for some real meals this week.  more “Meal Prep Edition 6”

It’s Been A Great Week!

Hey Guys! Guess what?!!  (<– I’m super excited!!)  The wellness challenge at work is over, and I won!!  My prize is (around) $360 cash!  I’m supposed to get it this next week.  I’m so happy!  I worked really hard.  Spinach, green beans, and broccoli for breakfast were not fun!  Two hours of workouts, 7 days a week wore me down.  And, getting 7 hours of sleep a night was definitely a challenge, but it was all worth it!    more “It’s Been A Great Week!”

Food, Fitness, and Life This Week

Hey guys!  How’s it going?  This week has been a blur.  It seriously went by so fast!  When I sat down to write this I had to look back at my pictures to try and remember what all I did all week.  But, I didn’t take very many so that didn’t help.  😉  I’m glad it’s the weekend and I have Monday off so I’m really excited about that!  I hope you all have a great week!  Here’s a recap of my week.  more “Food, Fitness, and Life This Week”
