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”

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”

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.”

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!”

Workouts, Food, & New Shoes

This week marked the half way point in my training.  I have 9 weeks left!  This week I didn’t run all of my runs.  My new shoes took a whole week to get here!  My shin was starting to feel better by Tuesday but I didn’t want to chance hurting it by running in old shoes.  Since I wasn’t running, I made sure to do other workouts in place of my runs.  more “Workouts, Food, & New Shoes”

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”

Meal Prep Edition 5

Hey guys!  Today I’m sharing my meal prep from this week.  It was quick, easy, and delicious!  I didn’t do a meal prep last week partly because I didn’t have time on Sunday to plan and shop and prep, and partly because I was just too tired.  But, I had healthy food in the fridge and made that work all week.  But, I’m back this week with a delicious new idea to share with you.  more “Meal Prep Edition 5”

Tex Mex Turkey “Meatloaf”

Hi Friends!  If you haven’t figured it out yet, I LOVE ground turkey!  This is my go-to for everything.  I always have several pounds of it in my freezer!  It’s easy to cook, you can season it so many different ways, and it’s easy to add to anything!  This week I decided that I wanted to spice it up a little bit.  I had a meatloaf in my mind, but when I got to looking at recipes it wasn’t really what I wanted.  So, I just made it how I wanted and crossed my fingers that it would come out okay.  And it did!  It was delicious and I will definitely be making it again.   more “Tex Mex Turkey “Meatloaf””

How to Change Your Mindset to Healthy

I’m getting a little personal today and sharing how I changed my mindset from unhealthy to healthy.  Being healthy is a lifestyle.  So how do you break bad habits and start living that lifestyle?  You have to get into a healthy mindset.  You have to train your mind to think healthy, and then it becomes a habit.  A negative mindset leads to failure.  I used to have a negative mind set and I was very unhealthy and unhappy.  I finally figured out how to change that mind set and have become so much healthier and happier!  more “How to Change Your Mindset to Healthy”
