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”

My Life This Week

Hey guys!  How has your week been?  I hope you are all getting some nice spring weather.  We’ve had great temperatures all week which has made it nice to be outside!  This week was pretty low-key.   I didn’t do anything exciting.  But, it was nice to have some quiet and be able to be at home and get some things done!   more “My Life This Week”

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!”

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!”

How to Make Healthy Choices When Eating Out

Hey Everyone!  Today I want to share some tips with you on how to eat healthy when you eat out.  I love eating at home because I know exactly what I’m fixing.  But, I also enjoy eating out and not having to cook or clean!  When I first started eating healthy, I used to get completely stressed out when going out to eat.  I would avoid it as much as I could.  I would decline invitations from friends and make excuses as I why I couldn’t meet for lunch because I didn’t want to break my routine of healthy eating.  I would think that I’ve been eating so good, I don’t want to go out and blow it on a three course meal.  Thankfully, I finally realized that you can eat out and eat healthy too.  Lots of restaurants offer low calorie or healthy entrée options.  You just have to know what to order.  more “How to Make Healthy Choices When Eating Out”

A One Run Week

Hey Guys!  This was week 2 of my marathon training, and it was pretty much a cross training week.  It was too cold and windy to run outside, and then it snowed.  I know some of you run in the snow and temps when it is negative degrees, and I’m super impressed.  But, I can’t do it.  I will run outside when it’s in the upper 20’s, but anything below that is way too cold for me.  So, I got one run in this week and since I was stuck inside all week, I found other workouts to do.  Here’s a look at my week.   more “A One Run Week”

My Kind of Weekend

What’s up everyone?!  Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend and are off to a great start to your week!  My weekend was kind of restful, which is the kind of weekends that I love.  I left you off on my recap yesterday on Friday, so we’ll pick up on Saturday. more “My Kind of Weekend”

A Rainy, Lazy Weekend

Hi Friends!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  We had the best weekend!  It was my favorite kind – relaxing.  It rained a lot, so that meant that we were stuck inside.  Since we were stuck inside, we were really lazy, and it was nice! After a really busy week, I was super excited about this weekend and getting caught up on some rest.  I took full advantage of the rain and stayed snuggled up in a warm blanket and enjoyed Christmas movies.  I left you off on my weekly recap with Friday afternoon, so we’ll start here with that night.  more “A Rainy, Lazy Weekend”

One Happy Traveler

Hi Guys!  I’m glad you came back to read about our second day in Vegas! (If you missed part one, you can read it here to get caught up.) We were total tourists and it was awesome!!  There is so much to see and do, and we were definitely not there long enough.  We are already thinking about going back!  But, we did see a lot in the short time we were there and Friday was spent touring.  more “One Happy Traveler”
