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””

5 Healthy Ways to Start Your Day

Hi Everyone!  Today I’m sharing five healthy ways that you can start your day.  I’m not a morning person at all! Anyone that has ever known me knows that.  Stay out of my way in the morning!  But, I am trying to be a morning person, and I do follow the same routine each morning.  I have been bad about hitting snooze and staying in bed until I just absolutely have to get up.  And that throws off my whole day.  I’m running late, sometimes having to skip breakfast, and then trying to start my day when I’m all out of sorts!  But, the last several months I have been trying to start my day better.  Your morning sets the tone for the whole day.  Here are some healthy ways that you can start your day off with that will leave you feeling energized and ready to tackle your day!   more “5 Healthy Ways to Start Your Day”

The Word of the Week is Consistency

Hey Guys!  This is going to be a long recap, because it was a very busy week!  This week was all about being consistent!  This was my third week of marathon training, and I rocked it!  I hope I can keep this up throughout all of the training.  (15 more weeks!)  Since my second week didn’t go according to plan, I wanted to make sure that I worked hard this week.  I pushed myself hard in my workouts, but I also made sure to stretch a lot more, and get a lot of rest so my body could recover.  I really enjoyed my runs and workouts this week!  I felt stronger!    Later on when the training gets really hard, I’ll have to look back and remember how much fun I had this week! more “The Word of the Week is Consistency”

2017 Goals

Hey Guys!  Today is Tuesday, so that means it’s time for Marcia’s link up party to discuss all things running .  Today’s topic is your 2017 running resolutions.  I don’t like to set New Year’s Resolutions.  I have found in the past that I never keep them, and I’m always disappointed.  So, instead I like to set goals.  I’m sure you’re probably thinking they are the same thing, but to me they’re not.  Goals are more attainable and seem more realistic.  I have several goals for this year, both running and personal,  and I’m excited to share with you.  more “2017 Goals”
