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”

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”

Meal Prep Edition 4

Hi Guys!  This week’s meal prep was super easy and quick because I didn’t have a lot of time on Sunday.  We made a quick run to the grocery store and I picked up a few necessities along with some fruits and veggies.  When we got home, I threw together some quick meals and snacks for the week.  I love meal prepping every week because it’s so easy to have everything ready.  But this week it was necessary!  I have been pretty sick the last couple of days and definitely didn’t feel like cooking anything, so it was super easy to just warm up one of these meals and have something hot to eat without having to spend the time prepping, cooking, and cleaning!   more “Meal Prep Edition 4”

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””

Meal Prep Edition 3

Hey guys!  I’m back to share my meal prep from this week!  Meal prepping is a must for me, and I love seeing other people’s meals on social media.  I get so much inspiration from what others eat so I hope you can find some inspiration from what I’m eating.  Having healthy meals readily available is the greatest!  It not only saves you money, but it also ensures that you will make healthy decisions.   more “Meal Prep Edition 3”
