Do you drink tea? What I learned at Celestial Seasonings. post image

I'm a serious tea drinker! I will go to Teavana and spend all my money without knowing it. That tea is EXPENSIVE so I don't buy it that often. I do love all kinds of tea though which is why I was excited for my trip to Denver a couple of weeks ago. I made [...]

Sunday set up: meatballs, egg muffins,  raw “cookie dough” post image

Happy Sunday!  That means it's time for meal prepping in our house.  This week I've been feeling uninspired with the meals.  We didn't even make a grocery list when we headed to the store. It's my job to deal with the lunch and Willie deals with the dinner.  Collectively we do breakfast and we each [...]

I'm excited for a couple of things coming up, but for me to really enjoy those things I have to be healthy and strong.  I've got Marine Corps Marathon in October and I never thought I would have the chance to run that race so I want to make sure I make it through all [...]

Note: This post was written on the plane this morning but I couldn't get a wifi connection to post it earlier. I'm still posting it though because I took the time to write it. I had a super early flight this morning. I had to leave the house at 2:30am to make it to the [...]

What’s in my race pack?

I'm leaving for Denver soon for the Revel Rockies Inaugural Marathon and I'm so excited.  The only thing about traveling is you have to pack.  I really dislike packing because I'm an over packer.  I don't want to forget anything! Plus when I'm going away for a race, I never know what I'm going to [...]

It's a marathon week so I don't do weights.  I didn't go to my usual group Power class this morning.  Instead, I stayed in and did some strength training with the ladies of Tone It Up.  I seriously love these workouts.  You can get them for free on their youtube or buy a DVD like [...]

The truth about stress

Wondering where I've been the past couple of weeks?  I've been stressed.  It's left my unmotivated to do much.  I've still be working out because HELLO that's a big stress reliever.  I think if I didn't workout, I would be a bundle of nerves and anxiety.  When I'm stressed or in a foul mood, the [...]

This week I haven't really be into anything.  My mind is on Denver next week which kind of made this week kind of blah for me. I haven't been motivated to do much so I've kind of just been off.  I probably just needed a little a reality break though.  I've still done my weekly [...]

At the beginning of the summer Willie started this water drinking thing because he felt like he wasn't getting enough.  He started doing it so of course I jumped on it too.  I just didn't use that annoying app that has reminders to drink all the time.  (Truth: Every time that sucker went off I [...]
